Okay, so if I am regularly going to post here, I suspect I'll need one of these. Profiles, I mean.
What you need to know about me: I slave at the great clockwork orange of American capitalism, have a propensity to overindulge in anything I enjoy (red wine, good art, favorite people) and I don't exercise enough even though I pay a nice person to come over to my apartment to forcibly move my lazy ass. Some have accused me of reading too much and too obscure and spending too much time at sketch locations in the BK attempting to find more. I don't think this is a crime anyone should be accused of ;)
What you need to know about my work here: I have huge ideas for stories and then don't update. Most of the times for the reasons specified above, but sometimes because the magic doesn't work and I try not to post drek. I primarily write angsty final fantasy xiii and dissidia, but have played enough of the main series games to bounce around in other universes. I have the heart of a drunken sailor and ship appropriately, but the pairings have to make some baseline sense and I'll usually torture my characters on the way to wherever it is I'm taking them. Oh, and I don't warn for unhappy endings. Or for anything really.
The Door of Souls': Since we're now over the 100K mark on this beast, I should probably make a note of it. In an attempt to not replicate the errors of prior stories, this piece is fully plotted - beginning to end - and will be completed in, at the most, six months. It is intended as a "canon-slide" fic that can be slotted into proper FF lore if a reader so desires. The backstory for this piece is enormous and will not be explored during the plot per se, but if anyone is interested, I'm happy to expand via PM. Character development is extremely important to me, so chapters tend to be long. Updates will occur at roughly 3 week intervals.
Porn: Yes I write it. Yes I enjoy writing it (sex is so expressive). You won't find it here. LiveJournal or the kink meme for fandoms in which I write. If you want specific stories, PM me. Sorry folks, the audience here is far too young in general.
Fandom Generally: As a forewarning for those who follow me as an author: after this is complete, I will be leaving fandom (other than certain collabs, drabbles and one-shots) to focus on original work.
Reviews and Feedback: I write because I want to tell you a story - you don't owe me anything.:) That said, thank you for running your eyes over everything, and liking it. It tickles my happy bones.
Adverbs: Don't hate on adverbs. It's come into vogue to rag on adverbs. Don't knock a whole part of speech guys. It's not the adverb's fault. If the piece is shitty, the adverb won't make it worse. If the piece is good the adverb won't make it bad. And you know what? Sometimes I do so something quickly. Or slowly. Or elegantly. So there.
In short: adverbs, give 'em some love.
