Author has written 12 stories for Katawa Shoujo, Pita Ten, Haruhi Suzumiya series, and Minecraft.

Can I write stuff? Do I know how? I don't know, but I sure do try.

Continued thanks to the people who have sustained communication with me through this site, and who have read, favorited, and commented on my stories. And to you too, the people who have replied to comments of my own. You are all lovely.

In other news, I have finally figured out how to upload cover photos for my stories, so look forward to that in the near future. I think I might be planning on uploading my very first songfic, which I have actually been working on for a while, so if you see it, please be gentle with me. When I make something that I am actually proud of and have worked hard on, it feels good to not see said hard work going to waste. Of course, I can understand if the stuff or the way I write is not your thing.

So... there's nothing much to see here. Thanks for coming. Thanks for breathing. Thanks for existing.

UPDATE: I am happy to say that the Impossibility saga has been fully rewritten and published! I am much happier with it now than I was when I re-read them for the first time after my arguably lengthy hiatus. I can't wait to get back into the swing of writing and hearing what you guys think. It's the community that keeps me going, it really is. You are all wonderful.

I have also finally posted the songfic that I'd been neglecting and hesitating on for way too long. I am still worried that I am not 100% happy with it as it stands, but I have already gotten one positive review from a friend of mine. Hurray for encouragement! If any of you are dissatisfied with how it is right now, or heck, if you like it too, shoot me a comment! I'd love to know. c:

I come in peace.

Katawa Shoujo Afterstory (Rin) by edtheiii reviews
Just a short afterstory of the Rin Tezuka arch in Katawa Shoujo... I wasn't really sure what to rate this, but I went with T since I don't feel the themes are suggestive enough to warrant an "M". This is the first visual novel I ever read/played and Rin really had an effect on me. Hopefully this little snippet will give some closure to those like me who were left wanting 'more'.

To Trust The Love Of A Lover by bewdifuldragon reviews
It was Shizune's job to teach Tezuka how to be a good student. Never in a million years would she guess that she would have something to learn from the flighty armless artist. And yet somehow, Rin manages to pass on perhaps the most important lesson in the world, that she'd only just learned herself. Post Rin's arc.

a walk in the autumn rain reviews
The town felt barren, as though she was the only one there, the only one in the world. Her heart fluttered, watching the downpour before her murky green eyes. Everything was at peace, she thought. Everything was always at peace when it rained. Told by a third-person structure with a first-person point of view. The spoilers are none. Can you seize the day?

trust
Rin and Hisao explore the wonders of hands-free operational housing. Based on an actual house I built in Minecraft! it took me ages. -u- (This story is written a few years in the future, for what I hope are obvious reasons. The two are married now, or something like that. You might not like this story if you don't support this couple. Rated T for safety.)

lighter reviews
another Rin haircut fic. I recently had my hair cut, which I guess is what inspired this... whatever you might call this. Sorry about having technically two of the same story; I didn't really have much of a choice in the matter, as it probably isn't a good idea to have another account on this site. In any case, I do hope you enjoy this one as well. Rin/Hisao fluff.

rin and morning
Warning: grim. This is a bit different from how I normally write. This was inspired by a grotesque visualization I found on The Mishimmie. Set in a futuristic AU where civilization has passed its prime and is plummeting downwards. Hisao and Rin find themselves in one such predicament, but nothing can be stronger than the sheer will to keep on going. Rated K plus to be safe.

Fly
insight on how I think Misha sees the world through her eyes. a bit of perspective; not really what you'd call a "story", but I haven't uploaded anything in a while and I felt like doing some descriptive work that's purely imagery. Hope you don't mind.

The last of the trilogy (that I've decided to call 'Impossibility'). Emi's been sick, leaving Rin to her own devices. Luckily, Hisao finds her and lets her know that he's there for her. After spending so much time with her the past few weeks, he finally realizes his feelings for Rin and makes sure to tell her in person, in a way that perhaps only Rin can understand.

Park Benches and Yellow Skittles reviews
A continuation of sorts of "The Complicated Process of Thinking". I guess I decided to do a sequel or something. Hisao accompanies Rin to a park, where he finds out what she was talking about the other day... more-or-less. The title is pretty much self-explanatory. This is a bit longer than the first one... I think. Let's delve into the minds of these two mindful misfits.

A short one-shot scene for Hisao and Rin. Takes place during Act 1. While Rin is painting her mural, Hisao decides to approach her and attempt to make conversation. He definitely succeeds in his goal, and learns something nothing short of interesting. What is it about Rin, he wonders, that makes him feel so inexplicably blissful?
