Author has written 8 stories for Card Captor Sakura, Final Fantasy VIII, and Final Fantasy XII.

I'm always forgetting to put disclaimers in my stories, so hopefully this will be enough: ahem

No violation against SquareEnix is intended. I simply write only when Muse beckons me to do so.

Me as a Writer in 4 Short Points

-I usually support the underdog pairings not by choice but by repulsion of the lead female character

-I never aim to be the best writer in any fandom, but I always strive to write stories that I find enjoyable and meet my expectations.

-I like relating details in the fanfic to the original works, but I will never go and study the unpublished history of it.

-Every author has their own unique voice and their own interpretation of the characters/situations. Therefore, I will never critcize any writer for their differing perspective. Rather, I will support them fully as long as they write with sincere enthusiasm and passion for their work and its characters.

Currently working on the following:

Lost Time: After two years apart and many changes in their lives, Balthier and Penelo meet in a tavern in Balfonheim, and catch up on lost time. Centers more on Balthier's POV and feelings.

AN: Penelo is 19 years old and much more confident and mature by this time. She has been harboring an old crush for Balthier still, and is finally trying to get him to notice the woman that she has grown up to be. Luckily for her, Balthier does.

All the World's a Stage: A series of silly/romantic one shots of Balthier and Penelo in random situations. Also a haven for any plot bunnies that I may that I don't have the time at the moment to continue writing. But I probably will get to them eventually.

Masquerade!: Originally a one shot from my "All the World's a Stage." Chapter one will be re-written with more details and background. Will get started on it once I finish either ON or LT. Probably will be a mix of romance and comedy (at least I'll think it's funny). Look for it to start in February!!!!

In Dreams: I just re-read it and guess that it isn't too bad. Sorry to all those that have been waiting for it to update (are you guys still around even?). It's been more than three years already, but I promise to update it around February. So quall fans, look for the update!!

Update: May 18, 2007

My apologies to any of my readers for the lack of updates. I tried writing again recently, but life has gotten in the way yet again. Recently, my fiance and I have set the date for our wedding, so I've been boggled down with wedding plans. And I hate to admit it but since I haven't played FFXII in ages, I've lost some interest in it. So I'm not sure when I'm going to update again, but I will try to write the last chapter of 'Lost Time' next whenever that is.

I'm sorry again to any fellow Banelo fans out there, but feel free to drop me a message sometime; maybe it will inspire me to write.

Take care all!
