Author has written 13 stories for Dragon Ball Z, Final Fantasy VIII, and Make It or Break It.
And I don't answer e mail to If you want to get in contact, try yahoo. My college mail is flooded and useless.

It's been a long, long time since I've done anything with FFN, but I decided I missed having someplace to endulge in fanfiction. Most of what I write in terms of fanfiction is FF8, and I used to do a lot of DBZ. I also love writing origional work, so you'll probably see a lot of that. Right now I'm going to be doing a lot of revising, but I think I'll leave the old stuff up for the most part.
Current Projects:
Just To Breath: FF8 rewrite of My Mother Called Me Girl
Incidence of a Raindrop: ff8 Unconventional pairing

Have fun y'all. I love feedback!

By the way, since I've got all of this beautiful space here, I want to take the time to commend the following authors, and suggest you read these goreous works of fanfiction, about various characters in the FF8 series. Granted, whether you are an FF8 fan or not, I think these stories are an excellant read.

Uncreativity: "Farewell, Sir Tristan"
Asyria Nightshade: "Pins and Needles"
Zachere: "A Yellow Dress"
DK: "Monster"
Yui: "You"
Deena: "A Length of Ribbon"
Nanaseven: "The Presence of Darkness"
Guardian: "Paper Flowers"
Negative Creep: "The Feild Where I Died"
kazeno: "Three Words"
Illyna: "Depth Perception"
Lady Aliena: Days of the Week Series, and "What about Nida/Xu" series.

Please read those stories and let their authors know how talented they are!
