Greetings, roamer of the internet.

Welcome to my page, AKA the dormant archive of my teenage fanfictions. I started writing for this site in 2009, when I was 13 years old (good grief, that's ten years ago now...), but everything that's still viewable here was produced mainly between the ages of 15 and 18. I can't say reading them brings me much joy anymore - they're cringy at their best, and disturbing at their worst. On that front, I think it's safe to say that I often tried to tackle dark subject matter that I wasn't really mature or knowledeable enough to be handling.

That being said, I do remember how much joy they brought me at the time. Fanfiction was what really got me into writing properly - any time not spent working on fics was spent daydreaming about writing fics, and the rush of excitement I would get when a new review would roll in is something I remember with a smile. Some of the feedback was negative (including some that was just down-right mean), but the abundance of encouragment I recieved from strangers from all around the world was vital in keeping me going. And I'm grateful for that.

Now, ten years after I first embarked upon my journey as a writer, I have my sights set on the real world (kinda). My greatest ambition always was, and still is, to be a published, working author (whether that be full time, or alongside other things), and this is now what I am spending my time working towards. As such, I think I can say with a reasonable degree of certainty that my fanfiction writing days are finished, but I don't want to delete my profile, or scrub my creative legacy from the internet for good. Rather, I'm going to set about the task of anonymising my profile, removing any references to my real life or any other potentially identifying information. I'm not ashamed of any of my work here, but, all the same, I think I would prefer for it to exist in isolation.

So, to each and every person who read, reviewed, favourited and alerted throughout the years, I thank you. Here's hoping that, someday, you'll be holding one of my books in your hands.

Thanks for coming - feel free to hang around and enjoy yourself for a while.

Starless by Surburia reviews
Scar survives the hyena attack, but is left in no state to reclaim his throne. Unable to leave the Pridelands, his survival will depend on Simba's ability to forgive, and his own wits. Simba struggles with his new responsibilities and the demons in his past. A story of redemption or destruction and what falls between.

Captive - Remastered reviews
When Mufasa, against all the odds, survives the fall during the stampede, Scar's final attempt to avoid exile and become King is to hold Simba as a hostage. This is a major re-write of my most popular story to date, and this remastered version promises to be longer, more detailed and more emotional than the original draft ever was.

The Flood reviews
I remember reading somewhere that an early concept for Mufasa's death was for him to save Simba from a flood instead of a wildebeest stampede. This is my take on how it could have been different. This is a short, two part story.
