Author has written 29 stories for Rurouni Kenshin, Inuyasha, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Supernatural.
kaoruca the awesome reader that she is, has volunteered to translate my fic "Streams of Our Consciousness." If you're interested in reading her very faithful version, check out her fic titled Monólogos Interiores. I've read the chapters out so far and think they came out better than I ever expected. This is Hoshi-ni-Onegai and I approve this message.

Status of my fanfics:
Time Changes All: complete
My first fanfiction ever, and as much as I love it, I’m a bit ashamed of it. It’s chock full of terrible writing, accompanied by a generic plot, but it is what really taught me the do’s and don’ts of narrative writing. I can't bring myself to delete it, but I do wish the option of "hide story" was available as I am more embarrassed than I am proud of that fic.
Remembering You: complete
I think RY was kept me writing all through those mid years. It was a fun story to get through, especially because I knew the ending before I knew what to shove in the middle. I sometimes consider writing for Inuyasha again, but nothing so epiclly long as RY.
Streams of Our Consciousness: complete
This is a experiment of sorts. I wanted to write 100-word drabbles, but didn't have a topic to write on. So, I decided I would write from the perspectives of different RK characters on the relationship that Kenshin and Kaoru share. I tried to write from perspectives that aren't completely mainstream.
Quadrille of War: incomplete, on an indefinite hiatus
As much as I love this fic I need to rewrite most of the chapters I have up. I need to figure out the storyline and flow. Currently I cringe at the dialogue. And there really were no readers for that fic. Maybe its a genre that's way too weird.
System Compatibility: incomplete, after 5.5 years of not writing a RK epic, I've come back to this fandom and I missed & love it
This fiction is an odd creature. It's about androids, government agencies, spies, assassins, and a study of what it means to be human. I never saw myself as a sci-fi writer, but I kind of love it. It's a great exercise of writing to dive into a different genre.
Eternal Oblivion: incomplete
This is my first crossover and SPN story I have ever published. I've started a bunch of BtVS stories, but never finished them or lost interest. This one is fun to write and I find it a nice break from just writing RK. Don't get me wrong, I love RK, but writing about Buffy and Dean is so much fun. It is also a really interesting exercise to write based on something that has already happened in the series and within canon again. System Compatibility has spoiled me by letting me complete step away from canon. So this is a nod toward the base form of fanfiction.
Ego & Bias: incomplete
This story sprung from my want to write another Inuyasha story. It is a holiday-themed story base very loosely on Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice.' So while I soil the Austen name with my scandalous association, I'm hoping to crank this puppy out in the few short chapters I believe it will be wrangled into.
One-Shots: I am currently going through an obsessively vignette cranking out phase in writing. I have always come up with scenes I want to write, but not entire stories. So, I started just writing the scenes. I might expand on some of these with additional scenes, but I can't see them as full-blown stories.
Cause of Death: deleted
I wrote about 90 pages in a frenzy because I hated the series so much. Never write from a place of hate. You'll only end up wanting to kill off the main character. I'm considering just deleting the story. It was interesting while it lasted, but my heart is just not in it and there is too much rereading of the original book I have to do for the fic that I can't justify. The only thing I liked about this story is the title, so don't be surprised if I reuse it elsewhere.
