Author has written 12 stories for Heavy Rain, and Last of Us.

The picture isn't me (I am all a girl and so forth); it's something I drew a while ago and is, to date, the only drawing I've ever done that I've scanned. I actually have no idea who the guy is; he was a total stranger. I just like the way the drawing turned out. I have notebooks and notebooks of faces from the bus. Maybe you're in them, somewhere.

I am a graduate student. I'm not a bad person, I just made a terrible life decision.

I'm not, like, crazy fascinated with Heavy Rain, but, honestly, it's the only bit of text I can think of where I feel like I know it thoroughly enough where I'm pretty comfortable writing about it without completely screwing something up. So that's why I keep writing stuff for it.

"Ever After" is giving me serious problems. For one thing, I need to rewrite the chapter I published while I was super drunk. For another, I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out an ending for it. Pretty much all of the potential endings I can think of are really, really depressing. I guess it's my own fault for picking the scenario, but I'm having trouble figuring out just how to end it - which means I'm having trouble figuring out how to write the lead-up to that ending, as well.

McQueen asked if I could take a shot at a story with Ethan and Lauren together, so I'm half-assed working on that. I've also got bits and scraps of another little Norman prequel. Reportedly, one of the now-canceled DLCs for the game was going to be about how he got that scar on his cheek; I'm sort of trying to pull together my own version of how that might've happened.

Bill's Favor reviews
We heard a lot about how Bill owed Joel (and Tess) some favors, and got some hints that he was too frightened to turn Joel down when he cashed it in. What might that favor have been? (Rating is for explicit violence, including some sexual violence. Also three characters who swear like they're expecting a medal for the frequency of profanity.)

Off the Grid reviews
One of Norman's earlier cases - semi-prequel to Heavy Rain, semi-sequel to my own story, "Never as Good as the First Time," with one recycled character from it.

Out There reviews
Little bitty sequel to the "Four Heroes" ending, emphasizing the disastrous consequences for Special Agent Norman Jayden.

Never as Good as the First Time reviews
Prequel: hopefully short-ish history for Norman Jayden. Not a lot of action.

Jurisdicktion reviews
Dear god help me, I'm putting up a Blayden fic. It's very silly and has a lot of bad words in it. Also, bad sex. Also, I am already giggling over the terrible pun of the title.

Scott and Lauren try to figure out life together. Spoilers, obviously.

We Almost More than Married Are reviews
Exceedingly slow domestic drama, very little plot movement. Angsty, but with catharsis planned. Quite soon after "Four Heroes."

Heroes' Reward reviews
Mini-epilogue for the game after Four Heroes ending where everyone gets out okay except the killer. Spoiler if you don't know the killer. Madison and Norman unload on each other, boozily. Second half contains significant smut.

You and Me and reviews
A divergence point from the game, just after the Lizard/Fugitive chapter. Norman, Madison, and Ethan duke it out together. Only major change prior: Ethan's dragged along his gun to the Lizard trial.

Square One, Squared reviews
This is meant to take place a few months after the "A New Life" ending. The one with the super happy nuclear family thing that took me like three tries to get to, killing everyone repeatedly in the process. Sorry, everyone, for killing you repeatedly.

Flower reviews
This is a big prequel that's pretty much nothing but a huge damn spoiler. Don't know the killer's identity? Go away. A fellow speculator about the killer's actions before the game starts? Come on in.

Getting the Fix In reviews
Meant to be an exploration of a narrative gap in the "Fugitive" chapter, as well as providing some characterization for poor offscreen Sam, just for fun. Short version: what do you do with a bleeding guy on the subway?
