Author has written 15 stories for DarkWing Duck, Balto, Chronicles of Narnia, and DuckTales.
Hello, and welcome to my profile.
I have been away from this site for several years now. I have not been reading any fanfiction or writing, but recently my long dormant muse started stirring and words started pouring out for characters I honestly did not think I would write for again. It felt SO GOOD! Wow, I have missed writing fanfics. I'm still not back at the level I used to be. I used to be able to write for fifteen hours with nary a break for Anything. Hoo boy. Now my attention wanders after just an hour and I start losing track of what I was writing. Sheesh. Oh well. I'll take whatever creative spark I can get, whether it's a few drops of inspiration or a steady stream of ideas.
No matter what happens in my life, I am grateful for the journey. I thank you for reading, and I can assure you that, even though I may not be writing stories for them, the characters will always be in my heart, and so are your words of encouragement. The days when I was at my lowest these past years were made a little better when I came back and looked at the reviews left on my stories. I may not be able to accomplish much with my life, but I'm grateful that I have touched a few people emotionally, and offered some entertainment.
As always, helpful critiques and suggestions are welcome. Spam, trolling, hatemail, and unhelpful comments like "dis sux" will be removed. (Yes, I have received some rude, hurtful and very unhelpful comments. Yes, it affected me, but for every negative person out there, there is someone with a timely kind word. I'm not going to let my subconscious torture me with someone else's negativity.)
If I have made consistent errors in grammar or characterization, you may message me privately with suggestions on how to improve so that I can pay attention to those details in my future writings. The odd spacing on my posted stories was a formatting error and not the way I intended my stories to be formatted. I used to have to email my stories back and forth from my mobile tablet to my desktop in order to post them here. I'm so glad Fanfiction.net has made the site more mobile friendly now.
I am well aware that my oldest stories have some characterization flaws. Now that I've become more familiar with the comic book version of Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck, and the triplets, my characterization of them is driving me nuts! Yeesh. I can hardly stand to read my own work. Unfortunately, I will not be able to update any of the stories I've posted, as all of their files have been deleted. It would take a lot of time and work to try to fix the errors in them now and I don't have the attention span or time to devote to that.
Please note that the date my stories were posted here does not necessarily reflect the month or even the year that some of them were written in. My first three Balto stories were written between 2004 and 2007, for example, and my oldest Darkwing Duck stories ("The Villains Revolt," "My Daughter, My Life," "Neighborly Secrets," and "Until Proven Innocent") were written during nights when I was plagued with insomnia or depression. Excuses do not excuse poor writing, but it is difficult for me to proofread material written during those times as it brings back memories I do not care to relive. I am not writing any more Balto or Chronicles of Narnia stories. I apologize if you are following me in hopes of seeing more of those. I still love both properties but the only fandom I am actively following and participating in is the Disney duck verse.
I am grateful to BeecroftA for his support, suggestions, and help editing "Best Present Ever," "The Duck Knight in Duckburg," "A Hero's Ultimatum," "The Duck Who Never Dawned," and proof reading "Luck of the Beagles."
That's all that I can think of to mention. If I have any news, updates, or stories to announce, I will post information on my deviantArt account.
Thank you for stopping by and best of wishes. :)

ALL of the canon characters and settings unless otherwise noted belong to Disney, Amblin/Universal, or Walden. I make no profit. I fully respect these companies and their work and I have no problem with rewriting my stories by removing all copyrighted material from them and coming up with my own character names and personalities and such. (I've already done so with two of the stories posted here.)
Please note that, although I reference specific episodes or printed articles on the characters/settings, the purpose of my work is NOT to replace or slow public sales of the originals. I pick up where the original works leave off and create new situations for the characters to face. I'm just an enthusiastic fan.
My purpose for writing is to educate the public on the original copyrighted works, and build/expand the fan base for the original copyright holders. Also, while I understand this does not give me permission to use the copyrighted material, I have personally purchased legal copies of the DVDS, soundtracks, comics, etc. from stores for private viewing at home. If you would like for me to make any changes, including deleting material from my work, send me a private message and I will cooperate fully and refrain from future infringement.
I did not intentionally infringe on any users here and made a note of any author's work that specifically inspired me either in my story or in the Author notes or reference pages. Other authors' stories not noted may be similar to mine, but any relation is coincidence.
The stories, unnamed places, places not shown or mentioned in cartoon or comic form, and names given to previously unnamed characters, along with the new characters (ex: Dr. John Henry Harper, Scraps, Dr. Medley, Bushroot's hero guise "Nightshade", Pinescrub, Tuffguard, plus others) are my original ideas unless otherwise stated, copyrighted, or commonly accepted in the fandom. (I could not figure out who the original author was that coined the name "Troublemaker" for one of Negaduck's motorcycles, so I did not credit whoever coined the term but I do Not take credit for the name.)
"Mrs. Beaker" in "A Hero's Ultimatum" and "Jacob" from "The Duck Who Never Dawned" belong to BeecroftA and me.
I am the first person here on fanfiction.net to write a Darkwing crime novel with the cartoon character Phinease Sharp as the main villain. I put hours of time and effort into my research for that character, even buying and studying the movie Goldfinger for further insight and inspiration. If you have read my story "A Hero's Ultimatum" and written your own Fanfic based on it, I would appreciate it if you would make a note in your story that you were inspired by my fanfic. That's all. I don't take credit for the character, his talon logo trademark, his catchphrase, or mannerisms. Those belong to the Disney Company. I just took him a little further in my interpretation of him.
That is everything I can think of to mention. Phew! Thanks for stopping by!
