Author has written 7 stories for Left 4 Dead, Shadow of the Colossus, Final Fantasy XIV, One Piece, and Legend of Korra.

I'm a recent college graduate with a crappy job, writing stuff when I can because I like to.

HOWEVER! My debut novel, Dreambound, vol. 1: The Survivor, is now in publication! It is currently available in print and Kindle, though until I figure out how to do advanced styles in Kindle format, I highly recommend the print version instead.

Dreambound follows Jesse Pinero, a college freshman in the near future who runs a semi-popular Let's Play Channel for a living. However, when a brand-new, state-of-the-art virtual reality online RPG comes out that is way beyond his ability to afford, he turns to his rich asshole roommate for help. Rich Asshole Roommate agrees to buy him the game, but only under the strict circumstances that he play as the most adorable little girl in existence and tell not a soul who he really is. This is where we throw our heads back and laugh at Jesse for agreeing to such a proposal, because what do we all know happens in virtual online RPGs? That's right, Jesse gets stuck, and you bet your butt Rich Asshole Roommate hasn't called off the deal.

So if you've enjoyed my fanfics here, or enjoy online games, or just want a sci-fi/fantasy novel with a fresh dose of exploration and comedy, then I highly recommend you check out Dreambound, vol. 1: The Survivor. And if you're wondering when Volume 2 will be coming out, I'm shooting for July of this year!

As for me personally, I generally like to write in the first-person, and in the present tense because it brings the reader right into the action, and I like that. Also, the question of whom the narrator is and what they know is very clear; if they're unreliable, you know why. Also, my thing's sort of become writing OCs with an incredible list of flaws to their name mingling in with the canon story. I feel I have to have an OC, because if there isn't someone new added to the story, then why should things go any different than in canon? Lastly, looking at the last chapter before starting a story is a cardinal sin punishable by public stoning in 59 countries and 15 states. Don't you dare do it :(

I don't read others' as much as I'd like to (largely because the most popular fanbases I have no clue about), but when I do, be prepared for wordy reviews, highlighting both the good and the not-as-good in a story. If it's brand-new I might point out some grammatical errors, but otherwise I tend to stay away from that and focus on other stuff.

Anyhoo, enjoy reading my stuff. Or... I guess not reading my stuff (though I bet that won't be as fun).

Eve of the End by lovely-logic reviews
People will fight with everything they have to stop themselves from being brought to their knees. It takes someone to erode whatever values they have, whatever god they believe in for them to fall like dominoes in a neat row. That's what this story is about—the girl who became a domino.

A story of a college student infected with the maddening disease destroying the country, but lucky enough to retain one vital aspect of humanity. No longer being updated, but most likely rewritten some time in the indeterminate future.
