Author has written 30 stories for Harry Potter, BioShock, Labyrinth, Hellsing, Read or Die, Ranma, Dark City, Skip Beat!, Misc.

Basic Info

I cross-post here from my main presences on Dreamwidth and Archive of Our Own. This means that my stories are not formatted with ffnet in mind, and especially older stories may lack my original formatting or elide some content (if you have a profanity filter, for example.) Depending on the performance of ffnet, I may or may not be able to update as regularly as on other sites, though I promise to cross-post any further chapters or sequels to the stories I have already posted here.

I have recently updated fic titles that contain naughty words, because even M-rated fics that only show up when you enable the M filter must adhere to the K content rules for titles and summaries. I think I've got them all, but if you notice any other issues please PM me. Sorry to everyone who's favourited and enjoyed them. If you want to download a copy of the fic with the right title/metadata for your ebook reader or phone, head on over to AO3.

All my higher rated things are available under the name 'kurushi_ficage' on Livejournal and Dreamwidth, and 'kurushi' on Archive of Our Own, as well as some older things.

Writer's Favourites

If you came from one fandom and are curious about my other writing but don't know where to start, I am most proud of:

Control (Dark City),

The Five People You Meet in Der Waffle Haus (Dead Like Me),

and The Anagram of Suzumiya Kurumi (Haruhi Suzumiya).

They rely to some extent on knowledge of canon, but each do a lot of character establishment to get started so I hope they are a good place to start for the curious. They do contain spoilers for each source, so tread carefully.

Posting and Writing Forecast

Sadly, real-life things are keeping me busy, I'm struggling to find time and energy to write. But I'm doing my best, and I hope to have some more time to dedicate to writing soon.

For the moment as I have no beta for Do I-jin, chapters will be updated most frequently and earliest at Archive of Our Own, though as I have the time to edit them and tidy them up they will be posted here too. I want to give a big thank-you to everyone who is keeping up with Do I-Jin with my sporadic posting. I am hoping to continue updating at a more regular pace, hopefully once every few months.

I've crossposted some of my Yuletide stuff, but one I am quite proud of from 2012, Immersible Millennial Egg, contains a sex scene and thus cannot be posted to ffnet. You can find it here: Immersible Millennial Egg.
