Pet Peeves: Writer's blocks, people thoughtlessly writing metal off as "screamo", dogs, pop music (Except Gangnam Style; I kinda like that song), rap, hip-hop, America's public school system, Jane Eyre, Twilight (For a myriad of reasons I will gladly share if you so desire), elitists, people with no respect for the first amendment, and people superficially acting like everyone's best friend.

I also used to read The Bionicle Books, Jedi Quest, Wolfbay Wings, and a few others from the ages of nine to twelve. But now I'm almost an adult, and therefore don't read those books anymore, 'cause they're for younger readers. Oh well. I can at least fondly remember the good times I had reading them.

Literary Influences: J.K. Rowling, Rick Riordan, D.J. MacHale, Jasper Kent, Greg Farshtey, Harper Lee, John Knowles, Edgar Allen Poe, William Golding.

Harry saw the flash of green light, he felt Hermione's grip on his hand loosen, and he watched the light leave her eyes. He caught her body, and held it to him. He'd fall with her, he thought. He'd hold her up until the end. Harry/Hermione FRIENDSHIP!

The Burning Earth
A rewrite of the original, which got deleted. A powerful young man with an unknown past is rescued from life as a gladiator in a prison run by the Fire Nation. Can the new addition to their group be trusted? Will deviate from the cartoon at times, and will be considerably darker in places. T for violence, and some mild language. Co-written with Kidtales.

Corruption reviews
Two American exchange students come to Hogwarts in the wake of Voldemort's return and wind up with so much more than they had bargained for. This story takes place thoughout OOTP, but probably won't completely follow it. It will be dark in places. T for violence, mild language, underage drinking, some depressing stuff and some torture scenes. Co-written with xSoulfirexCrookshanksx.

Retribution reviews
Dark AU. Aang's duel with Ozai was a draw. The airship fleet was destroyed, but Sokka, Toph, and Suki have all gone MIA. Azula killed Zuko in the Agni Kai, and Katara barely escaped. Aang and Katara must form a new Team Avatar and find the Water Tribe army without a hint as to where it is. Defeating Ozai is not optional. Features a few OCs. T for intense violence and mild language.

Oasis of Grief reviews
A look into Sokka's mind immediately after Yue's sacrifice. Oneshot. T simply for feels.

Cactus Juice Pong reviews
We've all seen how Sokka is on cactus juice. But what about everyone else? T for safety. There might-no-there WILL be some OOC thanks to the cactus juice.

Burning Bridges reviews
Ginny is killed during the HBP skirmish on Hogwarts, and Ron blames Harry. Both fall into deep depressions as their friendship deteriorates, leaving Hermione on the outside, trying to help them forgive each other. Threeshot. Slight Ron bashing. No romance involved. T for weighty subject matter and suicide references.
