Author has written 27 stories for Ranma, Inuyasha, and X/1999.

Hey everyone! Been a while again...

I am trying to go through and finish up a few pieces that were close to completion anyway. Might be adding a few chapters to Finally and Battle of the Cell Phones. Mission Impossible will take more work but I'll try and get to it. I have a conundrum there. The next two chapters are pretty close to completion despite me being stuck on a few parts. However the third chapter is going to be a pain as it is nothing but a concept at this point. It's the Mousse and Shampoo chapter... I've considered just posting a synopsis for that one chapter and not actually writing it but that idea kills me a bit on the inside. Still I don't know if I'll ever finish the story otherwise. There's only one chapter after that (so four more in total if you've been trying to keep track), and that one's basically complete as well save for a few transitions. So I don't know... Happy to take any ideas or opinions you might have on that!

Also a question: I know unfinished works are a pain, but do you ever like reading pieces of them anyway? I have a few stories that I've started but have no intention of continuing in the near future. However, they had some nice parts to them so it makes me sad to think they will never see the light of day. I was considering making them into a collection of oneshot type moments, but I'm worried that would annoy people and might technically be against the FF rules. Thing is I've been writing these stories on and off for almost 2 decades now so I've collected a rather large library of incomplete stories as I'm sure you can imagine. I hate that they're sitting there on my hard drive doing no one any good except me occasionally when I get the hankering to read them. So I dunno, I thought maybe some people would also be interested? Yes? No? Maybe? Let me know!

Anyway, hope you got a chance to read Epiphany which I just posted and got a bit of enjoyment out of it. It's not something I would consider my best work, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Ranma and Akane flirting is always a good thing. :-) Even if my execution in this case was meh. I have another similar piece I'd kinda like to post but it's way too tempting as a series that I could potentially pursue and I'm hesitant to open up a can of worms like that without finishing Mission Impossible first. Oh well. Decisions, decisions... I'm so indecisive these days!

Thanks as always to everyone for their support and interest over the years. I've been missing writing and hearing from all of you so hopefully I'll be adding a few things and working on my stuff more. Until then,

Ja ne!

Ranma's thoughts on girls and his experiences with hugs. Was originally a scene from Mission Impossible that I forgot to include, but it was too cute to simply scrap, so I figured it deserved to be adapted into its own Oneshot. Anyway, enjoy! R/R.

Simplicity reviews
Oneshot post manga. Ultimately what would it take for Ranma & Akane to finally get together? Would it take a miracle? Maybe. But maybe things don't need to be that complicated. Maybe things could be simple. Maybe all it would take is a toothbrush. RR!

Eighteen Years reviews
Obviously the cast of Ranma 1/2 have a lot of issues to work out, but you'd think 18 years would be enough time for them to get things straight, right? A story of paths followed and paths forgotten.
