Author has written 23 stories for Kingdom Hearts, and Hetalia - Axis Powers.

Formerly Dark-Amethystunicorn.

I've been away for a long time and I can only say sorry. I lost my way a bit after starting work, pretty much work became my life. Thankfully I'm still employed so this return to fanfiction isn't full time. But I am starting to rediscover all those interests and fandom that I pretty much abandoned as I adjusted to being an adult with a full time job. I'm sure most people understand that finding yourself isn't easy; it's a lifetime search but I'm rediscovering some important aspects of who I am and who I want to be.

I will keep my kingdom hearts stories up so no worries there. But there are a lot from other fandoms that I've written in that I can't look at without cringing and wondering what dark hole I was in when I wrote them. I've deleted them, and I may yet delete what I consider to be the worst of my KH works.

Whether or not my writing's still going to be the same is up for debate. I've changed a lot as a person over these few years, hopefully I'm a better person, and a better writer. Which is why I've changed my pen name: Dark-AmethystUnicorn has been my internet persona since I was 14 years old; I'm now 29, nearly 30 years old, that is literally over half my lifetime ago. I've grown, become more confident and matured a lot since then. And if I'm honest, I've only held onto the penname out of sentimentality of who I was when I first started out as Dark-AmethystUnicorn. I'm ready to put that persona to rest now. D-AU has done her job and it's time for me to let go of that safe little niche she provided during my turbulent teenage years. It's sad to relinquinsh her but I think I'm ready for a clean break now.

So please keep an eye out as I return to the Cloud/Squall fandom and may even begin to venture into new fandoms as well.

To Be Human by KittenFair reviews
The world seems black and white at a glance, but the truth is never so easy. Where one draws the line between human and monster is a lot less clear when motive and deed don't match, and a change in form is only proof of something that has been there all along. (Angel's Wings rewrite)
