Author has written 27 stories for Star Wars, Star Wars, Avatar: Last Airbender, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, G-Gundam, Neopets, Final Fantasy XII, Legend of Zelda, My Little Pony, and Portal.

I'm just a harmless geek who has the dangerous tendency to write and draw when she's bored. I enjoy producing work that uplifts, cheers, and inspires people, while at the same time being (hopefully) funny and weird and sometimes epic.

I'm cosmicfire918 on Neopets, and sometimes I write for the Neopian Times! I only have one NT story up here so far, but it's a long-term goal of mine to get most of my NT stuff posted here at some point.

You can find me on deviantArt and tumblr under the surfersquid handle!

All thumbnails for my stories are illustrations by myself; they can be found in my dA gallery or tumblr blog. Stories in the same series use the same thumbnails.

I also write original fiction! You can find my novels on Amazon and Lulu, under the name T. K. Arispe.

- All of my Star Wars fanfiction takes place in the older canon, before Lucasfilm decided to separate it from the newer stuff. I'm too busy to catch up on so much new material, but sometimes I just gotta write something about classic Star Wars characters. If it looks like I haven't done my research: I have, but in the wrong universe. Cheers!

- To those who like to follow stories and receive story alerts: I'm glad you've enjoyed my fics, but please be aware that if a story is marked as completed, it is completed, meaning I will not add anything to its FFN story file. If I ever write anything else about the characters or the scenario, I will do so as a separate story. If you do follow a completed story, please be aware that it will not update. Thank you.

- To all guests who leave reviews: Thank you so much for your feedback! You are awesome! I wish I could thank you individually but FFN doesn't allow me to do that for guest reviewers. So I'll just have to leave my thanks here!

Legend's End reviews
For countless ages, the three holders of the Triforce have been locked in a cyclical struggle, an eternal rebirth of enmity between darkness and light.

Will she be able to change their fates, both now and through eternity?

Interview With a Mandalorian
The moral of this story is: don't fangirl Star Wars characters because they will crash your house in the middle of the night and take you away to their universe where you can go on adventures and bother them incessantly. ... Oh wait, I guess that's a good reason to fangirl Star Wars characters. Poor Boba.

The Naming of Names reviews
Ten years after the events of Knights of the Old Republic II, the former Darth Sion still calls himself by his Sith Lord name. The former Jedi Exile is not really upset about this, just curious. LSF Exile/Sion, Mical/Visas. Sequel piece to "Requitement".

Requitement reviews
Linli Arathasis, the Jedi Exile, is determined to be the perfect Jedi, and it is slowly killing her inside. Atton Rand is not helping. But then assistance comes from the unlikeliest of sources.

Blue as the Sea
Because sometimes you have to write random sappy drabble about two of your characters being nice to each other. What can I say, it's an anti-depressant.

Of Niceties and Nu Mou reviews

Sequel to "Of Grimoires and Gria". Three members of Clan Excelsior get sent on a dispatch mission to Goug, where they stumble upon a brewing threat to all of Ivalice-and the narrator must contend with her decision to stay in this world rather than return to Earth. Oh, and pirates happen.
