Author has written 30 stories for Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy I-VI, Dead or Alive, Final Fantasy X, and X-Men: The Movie.

Penname: Kime Tara (kee-may tar-rah)

Main Fandom: Final Fantasy VII (Tifa-centric)

Main Genre: Drama/Romance

A few words:

For the curious: The website link in my profile goes to my blog, and my e-mail address is functional. (My e-mail response time, however, needs some WD40.)

On Distribution: If anybody wishes to post/link to my work on another site, please let me know. I won’t mind, I just like knowing where my things are going. It makes me feel good. Thank you.

Acknowledgments: There are far too many people who I’ve forgotten to give the thanks and praise they deserve. I’m currently gathering names; expect a section filled with gratitude on my blog in the coming months. Sorry for being so late, guys.

Alright! On with the show.

My pseudonym is Kime Tara; please call me Kime. I’m a student writer who’s working on becoming a bestselling author. I came into writing via fanfiction, and most of my fics are Tifa-centric romances, no particular pairing preferred. I tended to write whatever pairing strikes my fancy. I still want to, but nowadays I resist the temptation and focus on my original stories instead.

I admit, I've almost completely left fandom for fantasy romance. I have only one task left to complete before moving on from fanfiction: finish JWT. Of course, there is a problem with this, or it would have been done already.

Problem: Trying to salvage my old work turned out to be a lot more painful than writing a new story.

Solution: Write a new story.

So here I am with my developing FFVII fanfic. It'll get done. I'll be making notes on its progress and writing in general on my blog. For now, I'll just say that it'll be ready to post in 2010. :)
