Author has written 4 stories for Final Fantasy IX, and Legend of Legaia.

About me:

Age: 21
Gender: female
Everything else really isn't necessary to know.

But I'll tell a few things, anyway.

Zodiac sign: Scorpio (Occidental) Snake (Oriental) Reed (Celtic tree)
Favorite thing, currently: Toberres, my Tonberry keychain plushie. Oh, and Toby, my other Tonberry plushie! edit: Sadly, Toberres was stolen from me. Poor Toby is all alone now.
Hobbies: training with foam swords, drawing, writing, sculpting, sewing, role-playing online...I do a lot.

Now that the basics are out of the way...

Many of the stories I'll be putting up are the result of a particular idea or scenario getting stuck in my head and refusing to leave me alone until I put it to paper (or, as the case seems to be more and more, recently, fingers to keys.) Some of the ideas I've had for fanfics have developed into full-blown original stories, as I scrap and salvage the ideas and twist things so that the characters that I borrowed from different places become something entirely new. These would be up on my deviantArt account. Just search for my screenname, I use it there as well.

Funny things from stories or hilarious excerpts from my life

"Tag, you're it!" all the moogles shouted happily in unison. They all did a victory bounce on his back, which Zidane would not have minded, if there were not five of them doing it at the same time.

Mog was considerate. She danced on his head instead. -"Fallen" by Suikorin

"Dante rubbed the mark on his forehead, wincing and looking up at one of his vast collection of impaled demon heads on the walls of the office.
"Ever had one of those days?" he muttered to the nearest one. "Oh, yeah, you did. I happened. Never mind."" - "Rake at the gates of Annwn" by General Chaos

foam sword goes whizzing past head
Me: "...You know, I don't even flinch at that anymore."
Older brother: "Well, that shows trust. Or a complete lack of reflexes." (This actually happened.)

scrunchie goes flying past older brother's head
Older brother: "What was that? Is it edible?" Yes, this actually happened. And no, I will never let him live it down. XD

dog is called, runs into PS2 cable, tugs game console off the shelf and onto the ground
Older brother: flailing and grumbling about why the video isn't working now even though everything was plugged back in where it was supposed to go
Dad: "Try restarting it."
Older brother: restarts PS2, blinks as he sees the screen for the memory disks "Becca, can you open the thing, and poke it?"
Me: Okay. opens it, blinks "...There's no disk."
Older brother: "What do you mean there's no disk? It was closed when I picked it up."
Me: turns, blinks at the ground and points "The disk is right there."
everyone in the room starts chuckling
Me: "Magical teleporting disk!"
Mom: "Schrodinger's disk."
Again, something that happened. Typed this moments after it happened.

Favorite three video games

1. Legend of Legaia: Okay, this one, I admit, is mostly because of nostalgia. It was the very first video game I ever played. It's a Playstation One game, and came out about the same time as Final Fantasy Seven. Whenever I want an old-fashioned game and just plain forget about all of my issues at work and such, this is the game I reach for.

2. Final Fantasy IX: The depth of the characters in Nine really get me, I guess. Everyone's actions are pretty well fleshed out and understandable once you start to understand their personalities. Heck, even Kuja is understandable. And he's pretty crazy. My favorite, though, has got to be Zidane. No, it's not cause he's the main character. It's not cause he's a flirt. It's not even cause he's a theif (Though that does give him points. What can I say? I'm a sucker for rogues.). It's because of the scene in Pandemonia, with the song Not Alone playing. Everyone who has played the game up to this point will understand. A bubbly, optimistic character gets hit in the face with the reason he was created? Of course they're gonna be depressed and lash out at everyone around them. I guess...I like Zidane so much cause he's so human. Heh. And that might be why there are so many OC and SI fics in the FF9 catagory.

3. Final Fantasy VI: Can you say 'Crazy magical clown takes over the world'? I sure can. Really, Kefka just takes the cake out of all the villains I have ever seen. Don't get me wrong, Kuja and Cort are both wonderful villains. They just don't have that insane flair or background that Kefka has. Not to mention the music that he has. Talk about dramatic! And he actually attains his goal! (Better than what dear Sephy can do. He gets his butt handed to him by a blonde SOLDIER reject at every turn! No offense meant to Sephiroth fans, I just think Kefka's better.) He rules the freaking world for a full year before the heroes get off their butts and kill him. Oh, and did I mention he became the God of Magic?

Story summaries

Completed

To Have Loved and Lost:A boy and his girlfriend are sucked into Final Fantasy Nine. They apparently are dropped into different places, and Kole, the boy, takes on a different name with the excuse of having amnesia. Instead of concentrating on how to guide the story he knows will come, he is distracted by the details of life in Gaia that were not mentioned in the game. But that's not to say that he doesn't help. The first book in the True Gaia series.

Tears of the World: After being soundly defeated and humiliated in Burmecia, Drake and the others continue on to Cleyra. Drake struggles not only with his new-found hatred of a certain red mage, but with the thoughts of changing the story he knew so well. The second book in the True Gaia series.

In Progress

Whispers of the Water: Two siblings are called into a video game they just got, and the younger of the two floats ashore in a little town called Rim Elm. She develops a rivalry with Vahn, and chases after him when he leaves to revive the Genesis Trees all across the world.

On the Scales of Fate: The secrets of how Drake came to be in Gaia are revealed! Kind of. I'm kind of rushing this little synopsis cause I haven't updated this section lately.

Soon to come

Embrace of Flame (working title): A story I have planned and am trying to get to the point where I feel more comfortable posting. A woman born with a secret that allows her to survive blows others could not. Despite her complaints, she is not against working with the skirt-chasing gunman, Irvine. Not your average OC story, trust me.

Steeped in Darkness (working title): A woman from a world known for oracles and prophecy is thrown into the battle between light and darkness, keyblade in hand. Thankfully, she has a certain gift that helps her to do what others could not. Spans the KH series from the original to Dream Drop Distance.

Updates:

3/23/2014

My drawing/painting skills have been increasing rapidly lately, which means I've been working on that more often than I've been writing. Everything is still going, I promise.
