Author has written 8 stories for Saiunkoku Monogatari, D.Gray-Man, Spirited Away, Hook, and Escaflowne.
As the name indicates, there isn't necessarily any rhyme or reason to the stories I write. I write whatever strikes my fancy, and I often have no control over what the characters do; that's the Id's doing. My Ego and Superego are on vacation, and the Id is in full control. You've been warned.
A very basic and quick explanation of Freudian Terms:
Id - basic impulses, desires, search for self-gratification.
Ego - mediator between the Id and Super-ego.
Super-ego - your conscience, keeps you in line and following social norms.
The fanfics I will be focusing on belong to D.Gray-man, and Forget-Me-Not. In truth I will probably be tempted to write stories that are based on other stories as well, however these two get priority. Reviews are always welcome, as is constructive criticism.

The update for Chapter 6 for Forget-Me-Not is up. I've got half of chapter 18 completed for Altered Fates. I will try to have it ready by the weekend. It contains a very important scene, so it's taking more time as I want to do it justice.
July 4, 2020
So I updated Chapter 5 for Forget-Me-Not. I'm currently working on Chapter 6 as well, since I actually have a rough idea of where the next chapter will be heading. There is a chance that it will get updated by next week as well. I started writing the next chapter for Altered Fates, however, since there do not seem to be many people interested in it right now, it might have to take a back seat for a bit while I work on Forget-Me-Not.
June 28, 2020
Like promised, Forget-Me-Not's Chapter 4 has been published.
June 27, 2020
My, time does fly. I hope all my readers are doing well and staying safe during this whole Covid outbreak. Now that the worst of the chaos is finally behind me, I finally find myself with a bit of free time for updating stories that are quite dear to me. I will be devoting some of my time to updating my two stories: Altered Fates and Forget-Me-Not I know where these two stories are heading and I do not plan to abandon them. I apologize to my faithful readers for the long wait. On the plus side, Altered Fates, Chapter 17 is now up, and I will be putting up Chapter 4 for Forget-Me-Not the following day. Let me know if you are still following the story -- here's hoping that you managed to valiantly hang in there.

Happy New Year! It’s like an anniversary. Yeah, I’ve been away quite a while. A lot has happened (family wedding, hospital scare, breakup, work, etc...). Despite all that I am back. I have updated Forget-Me-Not with Chapter 3. My lovely Altered Fates readers, it has taken me three days to reread the entire series and I have started putting together the next chapter. I hope to have it finished in the next few days. Thanks for your continued support!
February 17, 2018
I am just about to post Chapter 2 for Forget-Me-Not. This story has been haunting me like you wouldn't believe. My muse is not letting me out of her talon-like clutches on this one. Yes, I'm still planning on updating my beloved Altered Fates soon. Unfortunately (and many of you may not have noticed this) I have to re-read every single one of my chapters every time that I want to write a new one. As you all know, it takes me a while between each newly posted chapter, which means that I have to refresh my mind on all the details that are in place as well as other details that need to be in place but hidden under the surface. This is definitely one of my toughest stories to write as there is so much plot involved in this that I cannot reveal, but need to hint at. If I don't keep it straight in my mind then the whole story will fall through. Now that I'm at chapter 15, this is quite an undertaking. It would probably be easier if I knew that more people were interested in it. Anyway, for my few hardcore fans (I know some of you exist thanks to your reviews) I will definitely continue this series. It's just going to take a lot more time, work and determination than any of my other stories.
In regards to Forget-Me-Not, once I post Chapter 2 it will take about 2-3 more chapters before we get a time skip to where Maggie is 16. I need to lay down the foundation for the future plot and character development to make sense and be meaningful.
February 7, 2018
Wow, it's been too long. The winter break for my school has kicked in due to the spring festival AKA Moon Festival here in China. Several days ago I dropped by Canada for my brother's wedding, and now I'm ready to buckle down a bit. Finally, I have some much needed down time in which to be creative once again. I have uploaded my newest one shot, Wings and All (Escaflowne), courtesy of the Yuletide Secret Santa story swap. I plan to post a few other updates as well, namely my long awaited Altered Fates update, as well as Forget-Me-Not. We'll see how creative I manage to be.
August 2, 2017
Updated Altered Fates Chapter 15 just like promised. Hope you like it (let me know if you do).
July 25, 2017
Yup, still alive an kicking. I'm on holidays now and visiting family. I will admit that much of my holiday consists of hiking, going to the beach and visiting my mother's bee yard, so I have been keeping quite busy. I know that I promised a new story for the exciting Supernatural TV series, however that will happen later on this (or next) week. Today I posted a chapter that I had already written a while back for another story that has been haunting my mind incessantly. Forget-Me-Not is my take on the movie Hook. As for my fans of Altered Fates, don't worry, I plan to update it sometime this week. Most likely around Friday or on the weekend.
February 25, 2017
The long awaited Chapter 14 for Altered Fates is finally updated and I actually feel very good about it. Since this was a much longer chapter than most it took all my free time to write, so I was unable to update any of my other stories. Sadly my break is now over, so I will be updating a bit more sporadically.
February 12, 2017
So I've managed to update Altered Fates Chapter 13 I had to re-write it a few times until I was relatively satisfied with it. Sadly, I did not get around to posting my new story yet. I'll try to get it done for next week. I'm still on the Chinese New Years break, so I thankfully have enough time to be able to devote it to some writing.(A bit off topic: the fireworks last night were seriously distracting. The area where I live doesn't really follow any strict regulations, so there were fireworks being shot off from six different locations outside of my apartment window. Without a doubt the most annoying ones were the ones shot right outside my window every five minutes for the span of 2 hours... Yup, very distracting).
February 4, 2017
I'm on a roll! I have updated Altered Fates Chapter 12, and it's only been one week since my last update! I'm also working on posting a chapter for a new story, so if you are fans of Supernatural then you're in luck. The story will be called Thicker Than Blood and I will be posting it sometime this week.
January 27, 2017
Wow, it's been insanely long since I last updated. School has been crazy busy, and as we are extremely short-staffed the only time we get a breather is during our official breaks. So, hurray for Chinese New Year! As we speak fireworks keep going off all around the vicinity of my apartment -- I kid you not. It's as if anyone who has fireworks is setting them off wherever they please: random streets, under apartment buildings, in courtyards, etc... Although I have been told that Beijing has very strict rules as to where one is allowed to set off fireworks for safety reasons, it seems that my remote part of Tianjin does not follow those same rules. It's now 10:30pm and the fireworks are still going strong. As a result I cannot sleep, and therefore am finally updating some of my stories. Clearly I am staring off the New Year on the right foot. Let's hope that I manage to keep it up.
This weekend I plan to update my Altered Fates; we are now on Chapter 11! Yay. I also want to update The Search, which has been neglected for far too long. Lastly, I will be adding a story that I had written for Yuletide 2016 just a month ago. It was a gift fic for "hlae" based on "Spirited Away" after Chihiro returns to the spirit world. It is titled: Down to the Core. Let me know what you guys think.
July 8th, 2016
On my way home to visit my family in Canada for the summer, I decided to stop by Japan's Kagoshima. Apparently a typhoon swept right past and it's been pouring rain for the past two days. This resulted in giving me some much needed writing time, and has allowed me to update my Altered Fates series. So here you are -- Chapter 10. (I will be bouncing around from airport to airport for the next 3 days, so I'll try to get some writing in then too.)
October 17, 2015
I have updated the second part of Chapter 9 of Altered Fates.
August 30, 2015
I do not even know if anyone even reads these. In any case, the update took a bit of time due to the fact that the region I live in was part of an explosion that was widely televised all over the world. I currently reside in Tianjin, TEDA in China. Thankfully I was on a plane when the explosion took place. People here are recovering from the tragedy that took quite a few innocent lives. The structural damage is still being fixed, and will probably continue well into the months to come. My favourite mall was completely totaled, however my apartment is thankfully still standing and my friends and co-workers are ok. I have updated the first part of Chapter 9 of Altered fates.
August 7, 2015
I updated the second part of Chapter 8 of Altered fates, and guess what? This story has finally hit 20,000 words! Leave a review to commemorate this moment. :)
July 29, 2015
Sorry for the long wait, it's been crazy here, what with my students writing exams, me marking those exams, calculating everyone's marks, visiting Japan the day after on my way back to Canada (from China where I work) for summer vacation, finding out that my beloved laptop had spontaneously ended up with a fried motherboard (I have no idea how that happened as it was fine when I packed it for the trip), and finally having to learn how to use the ridiculous Windows 8 on my newly bought computer... In short, today was the first day I was able to access the internet. Unfortunately, none of my stories will get updated until after next Wednesday since that will be the day I will come back from my camping trip (that I leave for in 2 hours). I felt bad not leaving any information about the long wait for my readers, so just to let you guys know you should probably be expecting an update around next Friday.
May 30, 2015
And so the first part of Chapter 8 of Altered Fates is up. I will try to post the second part later on in the week. If that does not happen, then I will aim for the weekend. Hope you guys like it.
May 16, 2015
Yes, I'm back with the second part for Chapter 7 of Altered Fates. This completes the chapter. Next time I post, it will be for Chapter 8.
May 3, 2015
Man, I'm on a roll! I managed to update the first scene in Chapter 7 of Altered Fates. I will try to get the latter part of the chapter updated next weekend. Thank you to the two lovely people who reviewed my previous chapter.
May 1, 2015
Tada! I updated again. Good news for those who are reading Altered Fates. Chapter 6 is now complete since I just added the second part. I was actually going to have two more parts included in chapter 6, but I fear that it would make the chapter ridiculously long. Therefore, it will be split into chapters 6 and 7. I still need to write the parts for chapter 7, so you guys will need to wait a bit before I can post that.
April 28, 2015
To my wonderful Saiunkoku readers, thank you for all of your reviews. Here is the first scene to the 3rd Chapter of The Search. Your continued support is largely responsible for the inspiration that keeps this fic going. This third chapter is dedicated to you.
April 27, 2015
If you are reading this and it's April 26th where you live, then the reason that I'm writing to you from the future is because I now live in China (and that puts me half a day ahead of you! Ha ha!)
In all seriousness though, the reason that I have not been updating my stories for nearly 3 years is because I had to put the enjoyable part of my life on hold while I came back from Japan, went to teacher's college, and then moved to China to teach in a Canadian high school. All of this took time and a concentration of all my efforts so that I could succeed in it. Right now we have spring holiday and I have managed to get back into the writing groove. I have missed my stories so much that I am actually writing the first part of my 6th Altered Fates Chapter on my birthday. No kidding!
I hope my faithful readers come back to continue this story. Since it is so much fun to write, I have a feeling that it will be just as enjoyable to read. It's good to be back.
November 10, 2012
No, I am not dead. I am however living a lot further up north where it is even colder than I'm used to, but I've been told that I now have a chance to see the Northern Lights, so it's all good. I'm attending teacher's collage, which equates to having absolutely no life. When I did my psych degree I had a five course load, in teacher's collage I have 12 courses each semester. To make matters even more interesting my laptop broke down completely and I lost all my files. In other words, the chapters I had almost finished for both Altered Fates and Saiunkoku, I have to re-write from the beginning...
I will be starting my practicum this week -- in a grade seven class -- so I will be very busy. However, some time before Christmas I should have a few days off, and I will do my very best to get those chapters written then. Just wanted to let you guys know I haven't abandoned the stories, they will get updates. It will just take a bit longer than I planned.
August - 31, 2012
The move took a lot more time than I thought it would, sorry. I'll try to get a chapter out in the next few days before school starts.
June - 22, 2012
I'm going to Toronto for the weekend to see an old friend of mine. This means I will be late in updating Altered Fates. I'll try to get it out by Wednesday.
June - 9th, 2012
Wow, it's been too long.
I have moved back to Canada and am working two part-time jobs until I move to Thunder Bay (way up in Northern Ontario) this coming September. I have managed to get into teacher's collage, and once I have my degree, I'm off to teach in an international school, possibly in China.
I have finally finished writing the third chapter of "Altered Fates", which by the way, I never plan to abandon.
"The Search" has not been abandoned either. I plan to update that one soon. For the time being, I have two new one-shots to add that are centered around Saiunkoku characters. They were for the annual Secret Santa competition that is held by the "Saiunkoku Monogatari Fanfic Community" on LiveJournal, a lovely group of people with a lot of talent in writing.
For those of you who recognize these stories -- yes, I am Everlaughter on LiveJournal, and these are my original stories.
March - 14th, 2010
I will be moving this Saturday. Unfortunately in Japan most landlords don't trust foreigners enough to let them stay in an apartment without a guarantor (someone who signs the apartment contract, usually that's the company you work for, stating that they vouch for you to pay the rent and not break any rules). The company that I worked for acted as my guarantor up until now. As I will be changing jobs, my guarantor can't vouch for me any later than my last working day. Therefore, I have to juggle work while simultaneously moving my things to a temporary place of residence. Once I get myself settled I will post the ending of Chapter 3 for "Altered fates", and the 3rd chapter for "The Search". For now, here is the betad version of Chapter 2 that I promised you guys last month.
February - 14th, 2010
I need to double-check a few details with my beta before Chapter 2 for "Altered Fates" is ready for re-posting. Hopefully I can get everything settled by Wednesday. Sorry.
February - 13th, 2010
Yay! I updated the first scene to Chapter 3's "Altered Fates". I'm still in the process of re-writing the second scene, plus I'm simultaneously working on the next chapter to "The Search".My beta is fantastic! She finished looking through my entire second chapter for Altered Fates. However, as it's very late here in Japan, I'm going to head off to bed.
February - 7th, 2010
It's been a long time since I posted a chapter for either of my two stories, and for that I am sorry. This is due primarily to 3 reasons. Firstly, I have no access to a printer anymore, so whenever I want to work with a cleaned up version of my rough draft, I need to re-write it... by hand. Yes, I am one of those writers who think better on paper than on a monitor.
Secondly, I was unhappy with the way that Chapter 3 for Altered Fates had turned out, and so I have begun re-writing it. Don't shoot me, please. It will be much better this way, trust me. I simply can't make myself post something that isn't up to standard (my standard).
Lastly, I am working on chapter 3 for both stories simultaneously. Altered Fates has a powerful hold on me that just won't let go, while The Search has been getting so many positive reviews that my Saiunkoku readers have managed to double my motivation. In short, I plan to post chapters for both stories in the near future, but it will take a bit more time. On a happy note my Beta finished looking through Chapter 2 and now it sparkles. I will re-post the betad version of Chapter 2 along with the new chapters for Altered Fates and The Search.
