Author has written 21 stories for Warriors, Harry Potter, and Hetalia - Axis Powers.
ME: Wow, finally got around to writing something! I keep giving myself grief about not updating any of this in forever, but I keep doing the thing where I tell myself I don't have time right now (mostly because I really, really don't have time for anything right now), and then the time just slips away from me...but that's beside the point. It's all on my to-do list, Fidelity and Elemental and everything. Right now, with robotics competition season right around the corner and it being the week before spring break and all...wow is my life bogged down!
FIDELITY: Okay! So, I'm working on chapter 9 right now, which isn't that major of a chapter, which means it's harder for me to get started on it? I think there's some reverse psychology going on with that, because I really want to work on it, but every time I pull up the document I find it hard to put the words on the page. That, and these chapters are so long...Also, the chapter is really great for set-up, so I need to keep checking it and checking it...
ELEMENTAL: I FINALLY POSTED CHAPTER 5 OF HOLLYLEAF'S RETELLING! And it's awful and you're all going to hate me and ahhhh - it's so confuuuusing. But like, it's really hard to make this story clear, because then I'm spoiling the ending of Elemental Book 4, and that's not what I want...as it is I'm afraid I revealed too much? This story is so difficult because Hollyleaf knows SO MUCH about what's going on in this story. Ugh. According to my schedule, I have 3 more chapters of Book 4 to crank out before returning to Willowshine and Hollyleaf, so...it might be a while, but also, I think that's good. It's more common for me to write as much as possible in one sitting as in multiple sittings. So we'll see on the timing.
Hello, everyone! My name is Storm that Twists in Spiral, but you may call me Elsi. The imaginary-guardian-friend that occasionally shows up in my Author's Notes is Trek. He doesn't show up terribly often, because I can take care of myself now, but he swings by when I'm sick. I have written fanfiction for Harry Potter, Warriors, and Hetalia, my most important projects being geared in the latter two universes. Usually, I gear up for massive projects that take ages to bring to life, but I've written a few Warriors one-shots before. However, I'm not exactly obsessed with these projects, as they're really more of side projects for my original fiction. I have two big universes that I play around with, and although I haven't actually completed more than first drafts of things, I'm always working on those projects in my spare time. I go to a ridiculously vigorous school, so my free time is...well.

She left that evening filled with the fire he had always seen in her – her eyes lit like twin moons rimmed in emerald, every muscle tensed, every stitch of her pelt on alert." A sort-of companion to No Escape, about Mousewhisker falling for Hollyleaf and Hollyleaf's downfall. MouseXHolly, some HoneyXBerry, PoppyXBerry, and PoppyXMouse. Also one-sided HoneyXMouse. Lots of stuff.
Elemental is my BIGGEST work on this site, and is a long-running AU of Warriors, which deviates from canon after Fading Echoes. It follows the adventures of five OC's that are the kits of Lionblaze and Icecloud and how they must save the Clans from total destruction. Skypaw, Mountainpaw, Birdpaw, Willowpaw, and Littlepaw are tasked with an immense prophecy, but have been gifted with power over the elements and additional skills in order to take on their challenges. Along the way, they must overcome drama between themselves and the Clans, puzzle through strange romances, and determine what is most important about life after all.
In chronological order, the books progress as such:
Elemental: War of Shadows follows the great fight of Lionblaze, Jayfeather, Doveheart, and Ivypool that leads to the events in the main Elemental series. It is COMPLETE.
Elemental: Sunstrike's Story follows the tragic love story of Sunstrike and Breezepelt, as they are torn apart by the Place of No Stars, WindClan, and the war that wages around them. It runs parallel to War of Shadows and is COMPLETE.
Elemental: Willowshine's Adventure follows the rebuilding after the War of Shadows and what the Clans must face that threatens to make them leave their homeland for good. It is currently IN-PROGRESS.
Elemental Book One: Vast Lands follows the Five as they are forced to leave their home and battle the signs of a strange but magical destiny in store for all of them. It is COMPLETE, but isn't exactly the best thing ever written, so a re-write is IN-PROGRESS.
Elemental Book Two: Peace and War follows the Five's adventures in their new land, as they must cope with what their developing powers can do and what their destiny means. It is COMPLETE.
Elemental Book Three: An Endless Reign follows the Five in their biggest adventure yet, as earthquakes shake the Clans, threatening destruction if the Five do not resolve their differences and accept what their destiny has in store for them. It is COMPLETE.
Elemental Book Four: The Final Step follows the Five as they must face the ultimate challenge - how to handle a fracturing afterlife and a dissolving current life. It is currently IN-PROGRESS.
Elemental: Hollyleaf's Retelling tells the story of Hollyleaf and explains what she's doing while her brothers and the Five have their adventures. It is currently IN-PROGRESS.
Finally is a one-shot that fits in with this timeline if you so imagine. The Icecloud blurb is exactly what happens in War of Shadows.
For RiverClan can also be thought of as part of this timeline, but it can also stand on its own. It'd be post-story.
No Escape and Meteor Shower can technically fit, if you squint. It's pre-Elemental stuff anyways. We're talking pre-Hollyleaf's Retelling, almost exactly.
Elemental: Compiling exists because I was inspired to write things that weren't part of the main series, so I've decided that any one-shots/character sketches I write will be thrown into it. Consider it bonus material!
The main characters are featured below.
-SPOILERS TO BOOK 4-
SKYSONG, the eldest of the five, has power over the wind. She is a silver mottled she-cat with pretty blue eyes and a noticeable scar across her face (as of late in Book 1). Her powers also include following cats into dreams (à la Jayfeather), reading minds, and following cats into StarClan. She is the most devoted to fulfilling the prophecy, and is often seen as the leader of the Five. She and Greyheart appear to be in love, but for several reasons, they have decided to stay appart.
MOUNTAINSTONE, second-born, has power over the earth. He is a huge pale silver tom with dark grey paws and blue eyes. His powers include supernatural fighting skills (à la Lionblaze), extended senses (à la Doveheart), and the ability to see healing properties of plants. He is ambitious and was originally trained by Bramblestar for command, although his guide has been revealed to be Ivypool.
BIRDFEATHER, third-born, has power over fire. She is a sturdy ginger she-cat with bright green eyes and odd russet paws. She has power over heat and has slight telekinesis, but her greatest power is suggested to be her ability to deceive cats into believing that she is speaking the truth and knowing when others are lying. She is training to be a medicine cat, and her guide has been confirmed as Jayfeather. She appears to be in love with Rushfire, but she hasn't told this to anyone.
WILLOWLEAF, naive and innocent, has power over ice. She is a small grey she-cat with white paws and light blue eyes. Her powers include sensing the heat within others and freezing it (instant death), limited control over time, but her most remarkable power seems to be mimicking the powers of others. She is light-hearted, innocent, and has a strong conscience, but she is slightly wary of herself and her powers. Her guide has been confirmed as Doveheart. She is in love with Mouseclaw.
LITTLEFALCON, the youngest of the five, has power over water. He is a very small ginger tom with odd blue paws and amber
MAJOR OC CHARACTERS!
MOUSECLAW: Willowleaf's former mentor and now her closest companion, a friendly but sarcastic young warrior.
IVYCHASE: a lovely warrior of WindClan who remained Littlefalcon's friend and eventually fell in love with him. She is expecting his kits.
RUSHFIRE: The medicine cat apprentice of RiverClan, who found a cure to the mysterious illness with Birdfeather.
DUSTFUR: Birdfeather's best friend, a resolute warrior who has lost nearly everyone he loves.
BRACKENHEART: Willowleaf's sensible ex-best friend, who used to be in love with her, but appears to have moved on to Bluemoon.
BLUEMOON: Ivypool and Bumblestripe's daughter, like Ivypool in her tenacity. She gets angry easily and often feuds with Mountainstone.
SNOWPAW: a shy, but enthusiastic apprentice. She is a close friend to Skysong.
The guides of the Great Five are Doveheart, Jayfeather, Ivypool, and Lionstar, although none of them know what this means.
The POV characters are the Great Five, the Four mentioned above, and obviously Sunstrike, Hollyleaf, and Willowshine where it's obviously their books.
Major canon characters include Doveheart, Jayfeather, Ivypool, Lionblaze, Icecloud, Hollyleaf, Willowshine, Breezepelt, Tigerheart, Bumblestripe, Cinderheart, Fallen Leaves, Reedwhisker, Sunstrike, Firestar, Bramblestar, and Flametail. Plus Mapleshade, Tigerstar, and Hawkfrost. Yes, you may have noticed me adding Flametail to that list. *eyebrow wiggle*
Major Pairings of canon characters:
A QUESTION OF ARRANGEMENT AU
So, Question is my take on Hetalia Cardverse, in which human names are used. The main characters are Kiku (Japan), who is Queen of Hearts, his reluctant husband and King Ludwig (Germany), and his energetic Jack Feliciano (N. Italy). Basically, the story is about how Kiku and company become the monarchs of Hearts in a time where everything is chaotic, and the Great North (The Nordic 5) is attacking them. Here, I'll just include a little bit of the lore of Question-Verse and what characters live where.
The Four Kingdoms - Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, and Spades - live in peace united by a common trade system and culture. They are completely different kingdoms in most senses, but they are also united by the same social and political structures. The Jokers, chosen from a young age and gifted with prolonged life, choose the occupations for each citizen. Every fifty years, they choose the new monarchs of each kingdom. The monarchs from all Four Kingdoms then meet together for two years to get to know each other and form friendships that make it hard to attack those kingdoms. They also train there, and then return to train for three years under the current monarchs. Each set of monarchs consists of a King, a Queen, and a Jack. Gender does not matter: the only thing that does matter is that whoever becomes King marries whoever becomes Queen.
There is also the Far East, which is basically Asia but thrown into so much chaos it just sits out there helplessly; and the Great North, which used to be a mighty kingdom but collapsed into ruin and went off the map...until now!
STORIES IN ORDER:
A Question of Arrangement follows Kiku's adventure as he becomes Queen of Hearts in the terribly turmoil-filled time that is the Great North's attack. Things escalate in difficulty when Kiku comes to realize that his marriage, too, is not the happy ending he had in mind...it is COMPLETE!
The Issue with Arrangement follows Ludwig and Feliciano's growing romance, which happens right under Kiku's nose. It runs parallel to A Question of Arrangement, is a series of one-shots, and is COMPLETE!
A Question of Fidelity will follow Kiku, Ludwig, and Feliciano in the aftermath of the attack of the Great North, and will introduce a new threat that will force Kiku to unite with an old enemy and make the biggest choice of all - to which country does he belong? Meanwhile, Ludwig struggles to unite the people of Hearts as its secrets become unraveled, and Feliciano will do anything to prove himself to be a great leader. It is IN-PROGRESS.
Okay, characters time. The bolded ones are main characters, the underlined ones are other major characters.
