Author has written 17 stories for Gundam Wing/AC.

In a world of big fish, I am the executive shrimp.

I've been writing (fan)fiction for a long time, but mostly privately. I hope someone out there will enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoy the experience of writing them.

I'm not a native English speaker. In the past two betas reached out to me to help me filter out all the spelling and grammatical errors, for which I was very greatful. The updates between March 2012 and December 2012 were beta'd by CaramelAriana. The chapters from December 2012 to September 2013 were kindly beta'd by Zethsaire. From September 2013 to January 2016 Ihad assumed full responsibility for the spelling and grammar in my chapters. I worked hard to deliver the best end result that I could and for a while I think I managed, but I couldn't keep it up and the work suffered. Currently, works are proofread and edited by Shima Yi. I am very thankful for her help and I hope the readers will appreciate it as well.

As any author would, I would really appreciate feedback on my stories, it'll be nice to hear the thoughts of the reader. I am open to suggestions, corrections and critique, so please feel free! But be nice, pretty please?


UPDATES

I will be using my Profile Page to keep you more up to date about the progress of future chapters to all my stories. Hopefully, knowing that slow but steady progress is being made will make the admittedly long wait more bearable for you and it will spare you from thinking I've dropped a story (or have dropped off the edge of the world).

September 26, 2016: I'm alive! I've been under the influence of some serious meds the past week, but we've finally lowered the dosage, allowing for some semblance of coherent thought (after a few days I, legit, could not string more than three words together to form a sentence... that would have made for an "interesting" "Dirty Job" chapter...). We've started the process of trying to figure out what the fuck is wrong with my back to explain these horrible pain-attacks. I've always been pretty healthy, so it's weird being in and out of doctor's offices and hospitals and getting poked with needles. I hope to get back to writing soon, I was on a such a roll before and now I'm totally out of it. EDIT: btw,the last two received reviews for "Dirty Jobs" are counted but, for some reason, don't show up. I don't know why :S I did not remove these reviews, should anyone think that.

September 19, 2016: The last few days of my vacation are going differently than expected. The night of 16-17 september the back-issues that I've been dealing with for the past few months were dialed up to full force and I had to go to the hospital that night. I've been under serious pain-meds since and I've slept almost non-stop for the past few days. The medication suppresses most of the pain but also makes me lightheaded, dizzy and nauseous. I don't see myself being able to finish anything in the next couple of days. I'll let you know once I'm well enough to write again, but for now I'm just here to tell you: don't hold your breath.

September 17, 2016: Another loud party in the neighborhood. Can't write. Can't think. Can't do anything. I could've finished up that oneshot tonight, but alas.
