Author has written 14 stories for Harry Potter, Kingdom Hearts, Get Backers, Prince of Tennis, and Naruto.

about me:
I like writing, not enough to make a career out of it, but enough to come up with a couple of fics on a fandom I like at the moment. The former resulted in me deciding to go into premed; the latter is fueled by copious amounts of pestering by close friends when I have time on my hands. Which isn't a lot, really.

I easily lose interest in any one fandom after about six months or so, but there are some exceptions. Oddly enough, I usually don't write as much on fandoms I love best, if I write any at all. One of these is Kingdom Hearts - I fell in love with it way back in the days when I didn't know what slash was - five years ago, give or take. Now I prefer yaoi. The appropriate algebraic equation for this in KH terms would be 813 = OTP.

I stopped being active on this site in 2005, and the few fics I've written between then and now (2008) are scattered throughout my different writing journals. I've relocated all of them here, except for the RPS ones. I decided not to delete any of the fics I've kept here since I first started at the age of 12. Some of them might be cringe-worthy to me now, complete with their Mary Sues and nonsensical plots, but it represents a timeline of sorts that I can look back on to see how much my writing has evolved. Definitely not enough for me to be content with, I guess, but someday I know I'm going to be able to write something that I wouldn't have any self-deprecating comments on.

That said, feedback is always nice.
