Author has written 10 stories for Fullmetal Alchemist, Doctor Who, and Thor.

About me. (If you'd care to know, that is.)

Hello everyone. This is ConfusedRambler, though if you prefer using a real person name you may call me 'Liz.' I am a 19 year old female Christian currently in school to get my Middle School Education Teaching Certification with a concentration in both English/Literature and Science. I'm hoping to find a position teaching the 8th Grade once I 'graduate'. For all Non-Americans out there, that would be ages 13-14. I currently work part time at a toy store and when I'm not taking classes, I tend to be a bit of a nomad. I wander around the Southeast U.S., but I'll always think of Tennessee as home.

Writing is one of my many passions, but there are some things I'm not comfortable using in my work. This includes yaoi/yuri, explicit sex, and what I deem 'inappropriate' language. Despite this, I'm not afraid to tackle tough issues in my stories. I believe there's something to be learned from every walk of life and that we don't do anyone any favors by sugar-coating reality. As a result, many of my stories can be quite violent and may be considered horrific by some. All I ask when you read any of my stories is that you keep an open mind and open eyes.

A Request: I'd really appreciate it if inappropriate language could be kept out of any reviews you post on my stories. Reviews are open for everyone to read and they don't come with warnings or ratings. Out of respect for fellow readers, I ask that you keep them at a K-plus level.

Current Works:

Baba Yaga: Making decent progress with this one. Updates should come along about once a month, maybe twice a month depending on material and length. Expected to be around 20 chapters long.

Light the Night with Fire and Flame: Began as a challenge fic. Will become a multi-chapter fic. I'm toying with switching up the way I post my stories and schedule my works, so don't expect to see anymore of this posted until I've actually written the whole thing. If you'd like to check on what I've done so far, feel free to use this link: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_VQx2KynYUGVHRMRGhVZXZ2TDQ&usp=sharing

Sojourn of the Spirit: I've taken this particular story down until I can actually spare the time to go through and reread all my notes and replan some of the side plots. Will be reposted eventually.

And the Stars Trembled: An original novel. Follow this link to read the prologue: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_VQx2KynYUGUTY1a0V3UmF2YUk&usp=sharing

Upcoming Stories: Please note that these are most definitely on the back burner for now! I'd like to finish Baba Yaga at the least before I pick up another project.

FMA-

Story 1: Sonnet 43. A chain of one-shots/drabbles that may stand alone, but would be much better if read as a set. (Like forthright's Unspoiled in the Inuyasha fandom. But with fewer chapters.) Royai. Alternating view points. Inspired by 'Sonnet 43: How do I love thee?' by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Will probably be my next project in the FMA fandom.

Story 2: Untitled. Multi-chapter. Avian chimera fic. A friendship/parental/family/hurt-comfort something-or-other. I'm still working out the kinks. I'll get back to you on this one. But it's coming.

Doctor Who:

Story 4: Better Half. A continuation of the already posted story. This will most likely end up being a chain of one-shots focused on River/Doctor events, though I may also include a story or two about some of the other married couples in Who. Anything could happen, really. Will be added to as inspiration comes to me. So expect very sporadic updates.

Recrudescence by Reyuna Yukimura reviews
