Personal Motto: I'm not biased in any way. I hate everyone equally.

I've found that over the course of my time here, many things change. My enthusiasm for stories that would keep me up at night with ideas erodes as I hit spots of the story I have to blend together. I've canceled several stories that had people eagerly waiting for updates, and in doing so I failed them. These ideas are not forgotten, but life and hiatus have claimed them from me. I still pursue my stories, and they do still get updated from time to time, but my motivations waxes and wanes like any man.

My responsibilities on the road sometimes preclude me from my favorite hobby, but I will still try to get updates out as I can. As long as Meth Head Fred can stop beating people with cats around here...

Knight of Salem by Coeur Al'Aran reviews
Of all the consequences of forging his transcripts, being kidnapped by Salem, Queen of the Grimm was not one Jaune Arc expected.

Suddenly human and no longer in charge of her own Grimm, Salem will be damned if this idiot doesn't take responsibility.

Professor Arc II: Headmaster Arc by Coeur Al'Aran reviews
He didn't know the first thing about running a school, nor fixing a political disaster spanning all of Remnant.

Service with a Smile by Coeur Al'Aran reviews
When Jaune's forged transcripts were rebuffed, his only option was to return home in disgrace or forge a new life in Vale.
