Author has written 9 stories for Toward the Terra/地球へ…, Blue Exorcist/青の祓魔師, Wolf Children/おおかみこどもの雨と雪, Darker than BLACK, and Tokyo Ghoul/東京喰種トーキョーグール.

1/9/16

I have decided to move on over to AO3. My old stories will stay up and I will continue to read/follow fics on this site, but all my new fics will be posted on AO3. You can find me there under the user name optimustaud. You can also find me on tumblr under optimustaud.

"Labor" I will not be continuing this fic. I don't have any interest in writing it anymore and I think it really shows in the last few chapters.
