Origin of name: In TSUBASA: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, the ninth feather that Sakura gets back is the one she gets in Dark Tokyo/Acid Tokyo-- the one that contains her memories of being trained as a dream-seer, and that allows her to have her dream of the events in Infinity. It also contains some rather important knowledge about herself. (Trying not to spoil things…but this manga is kind of getting old-ish now)
I also have an account under the same name on A03, where I cross-post most of my newer fic, and where I plan to re-post some of my older stuff if I can find time to do it. miladyRanger and I post Detective Conan fic together as miladyFeather, so you can check that account out as well.
On that note, the older fic on this account is a crapshoot. Some of the stuff from before 2012 actually isn't that bad; others...not so much. I was learning the rules of fanfic and writing some pretty self-indulgent stuff along the way. Recurring Nightmare with Popcorn, bizarre though it may be, is still at least decent in the earlier chapters even though they date to 2010 or so; some of my Gundam SEED fic from more than a year later is straight-out awful. Proceed with caution, everyone.
By the way, KuroNekoShoujo, who is also on this site, is my osananajimi (childhood friend in Japanese). She is stubborn, insane, reckless and the reason I will have a heart attack sometime tomorrow. She’s also the person I care about most outside of my immediate family. Go figure. Despite what she might say, she is never going skydiving or even touching a motorcycle. However, she really is a Yakuza hitman. But I have plausible deniability, so no worries.
My other friends who have accounts are miladyRanger, dovaly, thegreengleam and khoov19. They're all really good writers, , so I'd recommend you check them out if you're looking for a good fic, even though miladyRanger is the only one that writes in the same fandoms as I do--she also betas/enables all my DCMK fic. They're all on my favorite author's list.
Age: Older than I look, apparently. People tend to be around 3 or 4 years off.
Hobbies: Writing (in case you hadn't guessed), drawing, knitting, crochet, sewing, various other crafts when time allows
Steeplechase, a DCMK fic that involves a version of Hakuba Saguru with some secrets, and eventual Detective Boy shenanigans.
I won't be updating Sealed Wings or Code Geass: Blind Justice anytime soon. In the case of Sealed Wings , it's because TRC canon went kind of crazy and left my story idea seeming more AU than it was supposed to be and in the case of CG: Blind Justice because I realized that I couldn't handle the heat (or, rather, the harsh reviews) and so I got out of the kitchen (or, rather, the Code Geass fandom).
*A note about images: I am adding images to ALL of my fics, even the horrible ones from back when my writing really, really sucked. The fact that a story now has a graphic does NOT mean it's off of a hiatus*
A Quick Intro to Gundam 00 for Readers of “The Island of Misfit Toys” or People Who Are Just Curious
So, if you’re here because of Reviews Lounge, Too, or because of recent efforts to get the Gundam 00 fandom started again, but you have no idea what Gundam 00 is actually about, here’s a short introduction.
Gundam 00 is an anime which originally aired in 2009 and was licensed in America by Bandai Entertainment. It is part of a large group of anime, manga, and other media collectively called the Gundam franchise, which take place in various realities and timelines but are all linked by the presence of giant robots (usually referred to as “mobile suits”) that are called Gundam, and a few recurring character archetypes and plot points.
Gundam 00 is set in the Anno Domini timeline, essentially, the real world, but begins in 2308. The world has adopted solar power, but it turns out that clean energy can start as many wars as fossil fuels can, and the story starts not long after the end of a major solar energy conflict. The main characters are members of a group called Celestial Being, which is taking the idea of militant pacifism to a new level. Using their incredibly advanced weapons, four Gundam robots, they plan to bring about world peace by carrying out “armed interventions” against anyone promoting or engaging in war. (Yes, that is a contradiction in terms; the show addresses it.) The major nations of Earth are frightened and enraged, while smaller nations and individuals react in their own ways. Meanwhile, Celestial Being’s members, especially the Gundam “Meisters” (pilots), bring a whole new meaning to dysfunctional. To top it all off, the organization is operating using plans and equipment developed by a genius who died years ago—and who may not have told them everything. The series follows them, their allies, troops from the world’s three largest political blocs, the political leaders of a small Middle Eastern nation, and a couple of Japanese civilians as Celestial Being changes the world in ways that none of them expected.
If you want more information, the Wikipedia article on the show, particularly the episode and character lists, is very helpful. There is also a Gundam 00 section on the Gundam Wiki, but while it is likely to have more detailed, correct information, its articles are unlikely to be well-written.
A few adoptable story ideas for you all...I have been trying to write these and none of them have really worked that well for me; maybe your luck will be better.
My deviantArt Account
KuroNekoShoujo and I share a deviantArt account and I posted art for some of my fics on it way back in the day, so check it out if you'd like!
Some of it's kind of embarassing to current-artist me, but I'm not gonna take down the links. They are, however, currently not working due to Fanfiction.net glitching again and I don't want you to see the art badly enough to fix them. If you google enough you'll find the stuff eventually.

"We must all hang together, or most assuredly we will all hang seperately." -Benjamin Franklin, with some literal gallows humor.
"We don't have to dwell on the painful moments." -Fai, in Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicle by CLAMP.
"I wish I could have lived my life without making any wrong turns. But that's impossible. A path like that doesn't exist. We fail. We trip. We get lost. We make mistakes. And little by little, one step at a time, we push forward. It's all we can do." -Yuki Sohma, in Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya.
"You don't only belong to yourself, you know. I doubt there is a single person who belongs only to himself. When someone makes a connection, there is always something shared, and so people will never be completely free. It's that which brings out fun, sadness, & love."--Yuko Ichihara, in xxxholic by CLAMP.
