Author has written 5 stories for Dino Squad, Once Upon a Time, Elder Scroll series, and Merlin.

Just a soft-spoken critter with an overactive imagination and a penchant for words. Writing has been a huge part of my life since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand, and I don't see it stopping anytime soon. I dabble in many different fandoms, but in the interest of completion, I'm going to be focusing on one fic at a time.


Current work in progress: "Fathoming," a post-s3 AU of s4.

Arthur hears the word "Emrys." When Morgana rears her fabulous head once more, he decides that he must find whatever Emrys happens to be so that he can use it against her. Season 4 takes place, but Arthur is simultaneously using all his resources to hunt Emrys down. Merlin, meanwhile, must protect Arthur from outside dangers and protect himself from discovery, all the while dealing with the prophecies of the oncoming Trial of Albion; although his mere existence has always been dangerous, Merlin can't protect anyone if he's backed into a corner.


If you feel like helping out a starving writer and want access to cool stuff like early chapters, character studies and more, feel free to head over to my , under the handle of "Laughing Cat Dog."

About Time by wryter501 reviews
Through it all, Arthur watches. Across the ages, through tears and screams, through smiles and exhaustion and blood, through friendship and consolation and love and more tears, through darkness and despair and the endless heavy cycle of seasons… After Camlann and while Merlin waits, Arthur watches. Part 2: Time Was - Merlin reacts and adjusts to Arthur's return. No slash.

Bird of Prey by Shoedonym reviews
The problem with living in a world of magic, he would argue, is that the lines between fact, fiction and fairy tale blur. And still, Killian is told to never visit the lake on the third full moon of Spring. But it doesn't stop him. Swan Mythology AU.

Fathoming reviews
Arthur knows very little about "Emrys"––only that it is magical, elusive and possibly the only thing capable of defeating Morgana. As Camelot moves ever closer to its golden age, the fate of Albion rests on whether or not Arthur can find this Emrys and wield it against Morgana, whatever it may be. Destinies change and futures deceive; fate is never set in stone. After s4, AU s5.

Sleeping Soundly
The blood in your veins does not decide your family, but the love of your family shapes your actions. What you become is fed by what you were, and love can hurt as readily as it can heal. ES-IV Oblivion, Dark Brotherhood saga, first in a series of fictions following my usual playthrough pattern in a written format. Title subject to change.
Elder Scroll series - Rated: T - English - Family/Adventure - Chapters: 1 - Words: 2,886 - Published: 2/4
Once A Pirate reviews
Because while the realities of living with Killian were worth every moment she had fought for it, there were still some realities to living with a pirate that she hadn't expected. Some shameless fluff, to raise the spirits of the CS shipper in dark times. Post-s5, minimal spoilers.
