Author has written 2 stories for Angel, and Fullmetal Alchemist.

1st of November 2014

So I re-watched Brotherhood a few weeks back, and it spurred me into obsessively plotting and working out the kinks in my eternal nightmare/unpublished FMA fic. I'm feeling good about it, and I think there's a good chance it might happen; I've even signed up to NaNoWriMo for some motivation. I have some uni priorities at the moment, so as soon as I finish up with that (and pull my head out of Alien Isolation), it should be on!


I should get an honorary old fart's badge for having this account for so long. Every time I log on to this site I find they've changed something. I don't read a lot of fanfiction anymore, only when I get hooked on something and need to feed the cravings for whatever the month's flavour is. I keep planning on writing more fics, but it never quite happens. Onedaysomeday. Maybe this will be the year.

What else? I'm a bit of a novel, film, game and TV geek; although I can be a bit picky. While I can't get into a lot of anime/manga, there are a few series & movies that I adore (Fullmetal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, etc).

I'm pretty sure that one day, when I have children and they're pulling at my skirt, asking me if they can go out into the bright sunshine and play sport with their friends, I'm going to tell them to get their ungrateful asses back in the closet and finish reading their goddamn Harry Potter books.

My Stories:

Unnamed FMA Fic
I’ve been working on this since about 2007. No, seriously. It’s had about three or four facelifts and major plot changes since then, and at one point I had a first chapter posted here. It was torn down after a week once I noticed a few big whoopises (and I decided that I hated it). Despite my procrastination and fluctuating interest, I still love this idea and intend on posting it one day. It's AU set after the original anime. I know, I know, all the cool kids are watching Brotherhood these days. As much as I prefer the original manga, I'm always going to find Dante infinitely more interesting than Father, and playing with her back-story and creating OC's intertwined with that has been so much fun. EdWin & Royai.

Granny's Watching
Silly fun. Pinako is so underused in fanfiction; she’s always killed off or conveniently grocery shopping with Al. It's fairly dodgy because I wrote it when I was a teenager. It desperately needs editing/rewriting, but I'm probably never going to touch it. I also forgot to put a disclaimer in it, so here it is-- I don't own Fullmetal Alchemist. One day I'll bake a cake for the beautiful people that tipped me over the 100 review mark. I'm serious. I will bake them a fucking cake. I can't guarantee that they'll get to eat said cake, but it'll be there. They’ll be in the world; it’ll be in the world, and they'll know that that the reason that cake-y goodness exists is because they reviewed. It's like giving birth, but we eat it later.

Making Coffee
Was originally a 5-chaptered fic, but no one, including myself, liked the ending, so I kept this first chapter and thus it became the creature you see before you today. Old & awful because I wrote it when I was much younger. Perhaps only kept on the site as a testament to the fact that once upon a time, I actually wrote something.
