Author has written 10 stories for Final Fantasy XIII-2, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Realist and idealist, a Christian woman who believes in true love, has been writing all her life, all that fun stuff. All of that combined means that when I post stuff here, it has a singular goal: go straight for the feels. You'll see fluff. You'll see romance. You'll see redemption, but also the long journey to get there. You'll see characters put through the ringer and plenty of bittersweet and happy endings. If you're looking for someone who writes lots of dark stuff... um... you should probably look elsewhere.

I write for the following fandoms: Final Fantasy VII • Final Fantasy XIII trilogy • Infamous • Star Trek (reboot) • Halo series • Aliens

My OTP is Caius x Lighting (Cairai) and no one is ever going to convince me otherwise.

I also ship Hudson and Vasquez from Aliens and I have absolutely zero regrets.

My favorite characters include Caius Ballad, Oerba Dia Vanille, Ratchet, Rusty Pete, Han Solo, Molly Hooper, and Grand Admiral Thrawn.

"What I have shown you is fact. What you remember... that is the illusion." --Sephiroth

"Memories are nice, but that's all they are." --Rikku

"The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins - but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back. Love is more than a candle. Love can ignite the stars." --last page of the Revenge of the Sith novelization by Matthew Stover

"[True love is] the most powerful magic of all." --Rumpelstiltskin

"The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it?" --Jeremiah 17:9 (KJV)

"We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty." --Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds, Firefly

"When you can't run, you walk. When you can't walk, you crawl. And when you can't crawl anymore, you find someone to carry you." --Browncoat motto, Firefly

"No, thank you. I've spent enough time in the company of death." --Roland Tembo, The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Fun fact: my username is a combination of the word "Genesis", first book of the Bible and name of a love-to-hate villain Genesis Rhapsodos, and "Arclite", a character from one of my favorite franchises of all time, Unreal Tournament. It also just sounds cool.

Visit my deviantART page under this username for more stories that won't be published here! If you have questions, comments, concerns, or whatnot, however, my Tumblr blog is the best way to reach me!
