Author has written 6 stories for StarTrek: The Original Series, Power Rangers, and Transformers/Beast Wars.

Call me R, or Bluesteel. I've been here a while and I hope to stick around. I write for pleasure and well, if it pleases others I'm glad to know it. If it doesn't, well. That's not my business.

I don't take to hearsay and will laugh you out the door if you come to me with it. I don't care what you "hear about me"; if you don't have the stones to ask me yourself, you're a waste of time.

I shall note that yes, some of my tales will involve touchy subjects -- be they politically debated, hot-button or just sensitive. I will forewarn when such things arise. Please note that stories such as "Old School Botany" are done with research behind them and that I DO NOT advocate breaking laws, be they national or statewide. Good? Good.

Yes, I really am blind, so I will write according to how I am able to sense things around me. I don't appreciate ableism in any sense and this includes "cancelling out" disabilities. Either deal with them like a grown-up or get mocked by myself and those like me who deal with them on a daily basis.

I am a Roleplayer and have done so since 1999. Want to know more? Go ahead and ask.

I apologise in advance for any formatting anomalies in upcoming tales. The site and/or server and/or the adaptive tech and tweaks I have required on my computer may be incompatible with one another.

Here, I should probably note that my "speech" might sound strange to American readers. Simply put, most of my family is not American -- they're Canadian or distantly English. As a result, while I grew up speaking English, I ended up being taught a blend of British English and American English in terms of vocabulary, spelling, speech and sentence structure. It's all a bit weird, I know.

*Story Status Update: To Have a Spark is being reworked as we speak. Refined chapters will be up as soon as I am able to get them uploaded.

*Status Update: To Have a Spark is still being worked on. It's just a bit slowish at present due to my current need to replace my computer. All finished chapters have been backed up. Chapters in progress are being backed up to avoid story loss.

*A Note to Reviewers on To Have a Spark: To The Real F'n Scorp, December Sapphire, Bookworm and others at the Reviews Lounge, Too, I am infinitely honoured by your reviews and immensely appreciate the depth taken with each review by chapter. I only hope I can live up to the ideals of an excellent story.

To Have a Spark reviews
"Freedom is the right of all sentient beings." It is a concept nearly all can rally behind. But how far does that freedom extend? The question must be faced as intelligent mechanical beings learn of horrifying new concepts: Suicide and the idea that not everyone has a Primus of their own. I suggest at least some familiarity with TFPrime's characters. WARNING! Mature audiences only!

Pretend You Alive
Please do forgive the formatting... In the wake of the great Leonard Nimoy's passing, I realize I am probably not alone amongst the thousands of fans who still weep at night. Who still wish, or might pretend that we did not lose a beacon of humankind. 'Til all are One, beloved hero.

He was named after a hero who lived during the worst nautical disaster in peacetime history. Now, facing graduation from Starfleet Academy, he isn't sure he could live up to such a name.

Beautiful Predator reviews
From an Alternate Universe, the dagger belonging to Montgomery Scott lies on its table and ponders. Inanimate objects cannot think or speak...can they? Mirror Universe based on an arc by SLWatson

My Rangers reviews
Zordon is very, very old. In some ways, he is a parent. In others, a teacher and in others, a thinker. What does he think about on long, quiet nights when battle has been won or lost?

Old School Botany reviews
The crew of the USS Enterprise is in need of help. The good Doctor McCoy provides a very...creative solution. This was a response to a challenge. Rated T for mention/use of medicinal marijuana.
