I am a 34-year-old Canadian. I read a lot (both books and fanfiction), and I am frequently sleep deprived because of this. I am a chronic night-owl, and if I was an animal, I'd be a cat. Someday I would love to write a novel, but I have not found inspiration yet.
When I'm not having fun writing humour-fics, I enjoy writing character pieces, because I like adding in all the little nuances that make a character into a person. So far I haven't written any novel-length stories, but I hope to do so someday.
Please let me know if you find any mispellings, typos, or grammatical errors in my work. I proofread quite thoroughly, but the occasional error slips past my notice from time to time. I'm a perfectionist, so I appreciate being told.
By the way, I adore reviews. Especially long ones, but any will do. Hint hint...

April 1, 2017 - I am sorry to say that I haven't done much writing lately. And no, this is not an April Fool's prank. I've written myself into a boring corner with the Hetalia story I was working on, and now I'm rethinking the direction I want the plot to go in. Maybe I should shelve the story for now, but no new ideas seem to be taking shape to replace it. I've been mainly concentrating on my many other hobbies, learning new things, and real life obligations.
March 28, 2016 - I've been writing, just not very much. I have about 3 chapters roughly complete for my long Hetalia fic, and some ideas for a couple shorter fics. No idea when I'll have something ready to publish, though. I've been doing a lot of painting.
April 23, 2015 - I should write something. I really should. I'm still working on the Hetalia fic from December, but haven't made a lot of progress beyond the first chapter, except the plans in my head and some written notes. The chapter needs edited, so that I can end it in a way that flows into the next chapter. Right now the end is problematic, but the rest is pretty much finalized. I've been distracted by painting pictures for the last month or so.
My Best Work
For your reading pleasure, I present a list of my favourites of my own stories:
Bigger Than Anything (Fairy Tail) - My newest darling. Fairy Tail just lends itself so well to themes of family, friendship, loyalty, and love, and Natsu embodies all of these traits. Writing his perspective as a twelve-year-old boy was a great deal of fun. This story says a lot. It hasn't gotten a great deal of attention yet, but hopefully more people will discover it.
Warmth (Inuyasha) - It may not have been my first story, but I consider it to be the one that really got me started. My first award-winner, and my most popular story to date, I see it as one of my sweetest stories. It is also unique because there is not a single line of dialogue between the characters.
Divine Intervention (Inuyasha)- This one hasn't gotten quite as much attention as I would have expected. It holds a special place in my heart for its originality. It took a fair amount of research to get it right. Overall, it is a more complex story than many of my others. It is not a "light" read, and maybe that has been off-putting to readers.
The Domestic Dog (Inuyasha)- This one gets a special mention for its humour. It started as an innocuous idea in my head and grew into a detailed scene that has just enough elements of the "crack-fic" to make it hilarious but not enough to make it nonsensical. The title alone was enough to make me smirk at my own cleverness.
Grief, Divided and Sorrow Shared (Inuyasha)- I don't cry easily. I rarely cry when I watch tv/movies (except the last hour of Return of the King, and when Zuko apologizes to his uncle in Avatar: The Last Airbender, and during Snape's memories in the final HP movie). I don't cry when I read books (not even HP when Sirius or Dumbledore died). But writing these two stories had me close to tearing up. For raw emotion, these two take the cake.
Reassurance (Inuyasha) - This story deserves a look for Inupapa alone, but I am proud of Sesshoumaru's characterization as well. The mood in this piece is meant to feel like the calm before the storm, and I think I achieved it. Its power lies in the reader knowing what will happen, while the characters are blissfully unaware.
Inugami (Inuyasha) - It's my first multi-chapter fic, but it was written as a single long one-shot. In its author notes, I call it an exploration of hate, but I should call it an exploration of our darker sides. Greed, hate, mob-mentality, betrayal, desperation, and despair all have a role here. I hope it gets more attention, because I feel like my writing has reached a new level with this one.
