"Doc" Schweitzer says: Flintlocke, if we have a big giant cannon, why don't we just shoot ... a cannonball?

I'm a 24-year-old Canadian with a laptop full of unpublished writing and a pocket full of dreams. I was too old for most of my hobbies a decade ago, but that hasn't slowed me down. The less well-known, agreeable, and morally upright a character is, the more I like her.

And I do so love you, gentle readers, whether or not you opt to review.

Update June 30 2013: I've been absent from fanfiction dot net, but I am not gone! If you're wondering where I am, I've largely migrated to tumblr. You can read my general thoughts on stuff in my incarnation as maltrake or, if you're only here for the fics, check out my fic blog, wandavon!

I am, at last, working on my long-promised long fic for Camp NaNo. It's only been, what, three years in the making?

Major thank yous to everyone involved! I adore tvtropes, so it's a huge honour, gosh.


CATCH-ALL DISCLAIMER, SO YOU ONLY HAVE TO READ IT ONCE: I do not own Warcraft, Warcraft characters, Warcraft locations, or pretty Warcraft hats or t-shirts or ale-mugs.
