Author has written 29 stories for Legend of Zelda, Doctor Who, Mario, Kingdom Hearts, and Avatar: Last Airbender.
ATTN FtPverse Fans - All that Remains is on hiatus for the next month while the Nothing's Fair Rewrite is posted!
Changes/Update log for the FtPverse SeriesFeb 2014 - references to ASAS/Can't Escape were added in the Author's Notes for Dead Inside Sept 3 2014 - DIch87 (Kairi talking to her dad) was rewritten to clear up a few continuity things Oct 18 2014 - THch15 (Riku vs Larxene) battle was rewritten to clear up continuity things Oct 22 2014 - the term "Disable" was changed to "Deactivate", though "Disable" is still a term within the series (see DIch6 for details on the distinctions between the two) Jan 17 2015 - updated clarification on Ven and Aqua returning along with overall "how BBS fits in FtPverse" has been written out, and can be found here. Feb 1 2015 - the Nothing's Fair Rewrite has begun posting. This should be considered canon as opposed to the original Nothing's Fair, but that's probably obvious.
((a more detailed Update Log can be found on the FtPverse blogspot))
Apologies to anyone reading Alice and the Doctor, The Master Sword Issue, and/or Legacy of LiteHart. I will not be finishing these fics.
This probably comes as a surprise to no one, seeing as they haven't been updated in, like, five years, but this is a formal note confirming that they will remained unfinished forever. I lost my muse for them a long time ago, and none of them are really in a fit state to salvage anyway.
Now for a bunch of FtPverse related links (FtPverse is my KHfic aka the Falling to Pieces series)
-FAQ for FtPverse! (contains minor spoilers for Falling to Pieces and Dead Inside)
-FtPverse blog! (@ blogspot)
This blog is dedicated to the Falling to Pieces series. Chapter commentary and some fun facts/development details go here!
I used to post all sorts of fun facts/random thoughts over there, but then I got a tumblr. Fun facts/random thoughts/etc go on my tumblr now. Don't worry, the about page on the blog lists all sorts of links to important tags/places to go on tumblr to get your FtPverse fill. (Or below. There are a lot of links below, too.)
I tend to post a chapter every five days, but if I'm ever off schedule and you're worried about it, the blog is a good place to check! The other place you should check is my "ftpverse updates" tag on my tumblr!
-Handy link for all the chapter commentary (I imagine this is EXTREMELY handy for new readers! Or readers trying to catch up.)
-ASAS navigation by timing/placement in the series
-My personal tumblr- I post a lot of video game stuff here. KH, Mario, Zelda, Nintedo in general. Also writing/FtPverse related thoughts. Every now and then. You don't have to follow but if you want to by all means I won't stop you.
(Navigation for FtPverse-related content can be found here, including character and chapter tags.)
-The FtP cast's tumblr - this is a tumblr run by the characters of the Falling to Pieces series. It's been sort of inactive lately. I run out of ideas quickly.
-Ftpverse tumblr- this one is so you can get the updates/info/fun facts about the fic that I post to my personal tumblr without, y'know, having to put up with personal posts and various reblogs from other fandoms. Handy, huh? It also has extremely organized tags and navigation for FtPverse, unlike my personal.
Navigation can be found here: includes book tags, character tags, art tags, etc. The entire blog is full of text posts from my personal, along with fanart/graphics that, again, remind me of the fic things I made that I didn't want on my personal (like book 5 outfit designs and character intro sheets).
-My Youtube Account
All FtPverse related AMVs are here (including the trailers), along with some other KH AMVs that I've made, though they probably aren't that great, and I haven't posted in probably a year. The Meltdown Project, if anyone remembers it, is also on here.
-My 8 tracks account - So you can view some of the fanmixes I've made! Most of these are FtPverse or KH related. (Also I've faved a ton of good fanmixes that you should definitely check out!) - tracklists for FtPverse mixes and only FtPverse mixes here, and all FtPverse mixes here. If you want the FtPverse soundtrack, it and all mixes for it are filed here.
-outfit designs for the main cast for All that Remains
-Halloween Namine(thanks to my sis for drawing) - see ch13 of Falling to Pieces
-Concept art for FtPverse (on DA) (includes Sora's scar and Riku's new dark mode, along with all that concept stuff from FtP--a better depiction of Sora's scar can be found on the ftpverse cast tumblr, or on the ftpverse character resource)
-Other art/graphics I've done for FtPverse (I stopped using deviantART in favor of tumblr, like a lot of people)
-Pictures I have found on deviantART that remind me of FtPverse
-Pictures I've found on tumblr that remind me of FtPverse

Explanation of my "Falling to Pieces" series
PLEASE NOTE, IN ADVANCE, THAT THERE IS A LOT OF VIOLENCE IN THIS SERIES. IT'S A LITTLE EXPECTED FROM A VIDEO GAME FANFIC BUT. I WANT YOU TO KNOW IT'S THERE. THERE IS ALSO SOME BLOOD. AND QUITE A FEW DEATHS. JUST THOUGHT I WOULD WARN YOU. There's also some talk about depression and abuse plus a little implied self harm (and an implied suicide?). I thought some people would appreciate knowing that up front.
A full timeline (with spoilers, mind) of the series can be found here.
the Truth Hurts (TH) - After being killed during the events of KH: Chain of Memories, the Riku Replica finds himself on Destiny Islands, somehow alive. But how did he get here? Why isn't he dead? And why can't he remember anything!? Spans over the course of a month (ish)
Falling to Pieces (FtP) - takes place three months after the Truth Hurts. Sora's jealousy of Riku has put him on the edge, and he's threatening to teeter off and fall into the darkness any minute. Can Kairi save him before it's too late? Will Riku bear the burden of saving the Worlds, or does he honestly just not care enough to try? And what's going on with Namine? Spans the course of aboouuut three weeks.
Nothing's Fair (NF) - a "side-story" covering Roxas's life (considered third in the series) and how he fits into everything. In this universe, Roxas is a Replica created by the Organization (since Sora was never turned into a Heartless and thus lacks a Nobody). Life is going well for him, until he meets a girl named Xion, who is apparently a "mistake". With Saix - who hates mistakes - in charge of the Replica Program, what does this mean for Xion? And what will happen when Roxas puts all his effort into keeping her safe? The story begins halfway through Falling to Pieces. The Rewrite is now up.
Dead Inside (DI) - begins three months after Falling to Pieces ends. Picks up where Falling to Pieces left off, with Riku searching for Sora, and Sora still somewhere in the Realm of Darkness. After some time, Riku's put in charge of some Rebellion he's not sure he want's to be in charge of, and Sora leaves to go get a handle on his still restless darkness. There's a crapton more to it than that, but I'm not going to cover it all. FINALLY finished. Spans the course of three months.
Another Side, Another Story (ASAS) - collection of scenes that just don't fit anywhere else in the series. Some scenes were scrapped. Some chapters are original drafts (like the extra chapters). Some scenes are AU. Some scenes are actually considered canon but concern a different set of characters (like Ven and Aqua) and therefore don't fit in with the mainstream of Dead Inside. Takes place... just... EVERYwhen.
Things are also now labeled in ASAS based on when they took place (unless they're scraps or AU in which they are labeled as such). Please note Prequel is anything that happened before the Truth Hurts that doesn't classify as BBS or CoM. BBS is my version of BBS and CoM is canon CoM with a couple of my added expansions. (I've only written like two things for CoM tho and now that I think about it they both involve Larxene. Whoops?)
Some Things You Just Can't Escape ("Can't Escape" for short) - hosted on my sister's (forevermagik13) profile. Is a crossover between our KH fanfics, though it does detail a lot of events that take place in my universe, especially concerning the Rebellion. Convenient link to said story here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6902839/1/Some_things_you_just_cant_Escape
There are a ton of refs to Can't Escape in Dead Inside, but they are largely there for reference sake and so that you can manage reading three intertwining stories at once. (Dead Inside, Can't Escape, and ASAS). As I say below, you don't have to read Can't Escape if you don't want to. It will provide a little further knowledge for Dead Inside, but you will survive if you don't read it.
(Also, please note the first 30 or so chapters of Can't Escape take place somewhere before the 50(ish) chapters of Dead Inside--some of the earlier ones even happen during Nothing's Fair - there were too many and all too vague to peg down exactly when they happened so I never made refs to them anywhere.)
All that Remains (ATR) - I completely forgot to update my profile to include it and it's name, etc. Well. KH3 equivalent. The road to recovery is a long one. Riku's still got some inner demons to face down, Sora doesn't really have it any better between the memory of his Shadow, plus his parents... Namine keeps having terrible nightmares, and it's all Kairi can do to keep everyone together. Not to mention Xehanort's supposed to come back, and are any of them really prepared for that? Starts like... three days after Dead Inside ends.
Why does my fic (ftpverse) crossover with my sister's fic (atpverse) in Can't Escape?
Because she started writing her fic, which was a continuation of what had happened last in KH canon (KH2 chronologically, when she started writing) and since it was set in "KH canon" I figured "what the hey; her universe can be my 'original' one." OKay, it didn't actually happen like that. I think her Vexen was just like "My Riku Replica's in that universe! I'm going over there!" and after he came over it sort of just clinched the whole thing.
You are in no way obligated to read the crossovers, however. For the most part, none of the crossovers are vital to understand my plot. If there are any that are Vitally Important, I will let you know and let you know which chapters they are so you can read them. However, in the end, the decision is still yours on whether or not you actually read. And if you don't read, it's cool, you'll still be able to follow Dead Inside's plot, you'll just not get a couple of references.
At this point, only ch62-65 of Can't Escape are Slightly Important to Dead Inside's plot. There was another later crossover, but it was So Vitally Important that it was posted to Remnants and All that Remains, just from different POVs depending on who was writing it.
(If you do choose to read only one sequence of Can't Escape though, please make it ch54-60 aka the Ienzo sequence because it is one of my favorite things I have ever written.)
Things/differences to keep in mind concerning FtPverse vs KH canon:Kairi was born and raised on Destiny Islands. Her dad is still the mayor, but he's her biological father. (Her mother left when she was really young so she doesn't remember much of her, and no, her mother was NOT a Destiny Islands native. She was... probably from Radiant Garden.) Without Riku on Destiny Islands, it was really only Sora and Kairi, making them closer friends than they are in KH canon. I guess. I mean I'd like to think they were pretty close in KH canon but... The Organization's Replica Program was extremely successful, creating roughly 120 successful Replicas. Replicas include three important Larxenes, about two important Marluxias, one important Zexion, and 5-10 important Vexens. There were Lexaeus Replicas but none were really important. There was also just one of Xigbar, who was pretty important, but is now dead.
(A list of important Replicas and their roles can be found here) Ven is left-handed. He was originally intended to be left-handed in KH canon (note KH2FM secret ending, along with some concept art) but it was apparently scrapped. I like the idea of him being left-handed, and it's not like it changes anything plot-wise, so why the heck not? Roxas is a Replica, for reasons explained above. (Sora never became a Heartless, etc.) Nothing's Fair expands this, and his creation, and why he still looks like Ven despite being a Replica of Sora. Xion is a Replica, but the whole "her appearance changes based on who looks at her" thing they were pulling in KH canon doesn't apply. The why of that is expanded on in Nothing's Fair, but the short version is she wasn't built to/from absorbed memories, so her appearance doesn't rely on that. Saix is in charge of the Replica Program (though, Vexen was originally. Vexen just died and Saix was handed the Program for some whatever reason. Good organizational skills? No one better was available? Who knows.) Riku is the Riku Replica from KH canon Namine is a Replica and cannot control memories. (They couldn't program that ability into her, which was actually mentioned flat out in the Truth Hurts.) Sora fell into darkness at one point. (see: Falling to Pieces) Sephiroth is dead. (He and Cloud fought and finished their battle long before the Truth Hurts. Also in this universe, he is what is known as a Shadow - though I actually based a lot of my canon for Shadows on what KH canon gave me concerning him.) BBS happened seven years before the Truth Hurts, instead of ten. Exact canon for BBS is up in the air, but I figure that, for the most part, it happened like canon did minus Aqua actually passing the Keyblade to Sora and the final battle (both of which are scenes documented in ASAS). Further information concerning BBS's place within FtPverse is located here. (This also has an ongoing list of specific changes between KH and FtPverse canon concerning BBS.) Xehanort's possession of Terra's body was 100% successful, meaning he retained his ability to wield a Keyblade AND all of his memories. (He lost the Keyblade wielding ability on becoming Xemnas, however. His memories are, most likely, still intact.) This universe, as of Dead Inside (ish) has two not-Replica Vexens. One of them is currently dead (he was killed in the Truth Hurts, though he'll be back eventually), while the other has hopped over from magik's universe/"kh canon". He's the one who created Riku. Sora's Shadow does not have a name, so you can stop asking. When it comes to ships, besides Namiku, I'm actually not actively shipping any of them (especially not SoKai, and certainly not Terra/Aqua).
