Author has written 17 stories for Ouran High School Host Club, Hetalia - Axis Powers, and Blackadder.

I write England with Romano because as hot-tempered, defensive men, they'd probably understand and appreciate each other, once the barriers were broken down between them. I also like the contrast in their nations (climate, history, pace of life, cooking skills) as well as the general pleasant visual contrast of the two of them together. They make more sense to me as a couple than either of them does with anyone else. Romano and England appear in every Hetalia-based story except "Stay Away from Japanese Bunnies!" although in my head, that story takes place on the same day as "Kissing Lessons."


I only have one multi-story universe, Skirmish Brothers. These stories all have an image of the Skirmish Brothers flag (black, white and red with Gilbird in the middle). This is a canon universe, featuring both Engmano and DenPru plus some other pre-established background pairings like GerIta and PoLiet. There are some nice fanarts for the SB's on deviantArt - thanks to all those awesome artists!

As of 1/9/16 I am republishing this universe in the correct chronological order as a new story, The Complete Skirmish Brothers Compilation. However, the original stories will remain online as initially published (marked as complete). New chapters for this universe will go into the compilation story.

Skirmish Brothers is the winner of Best Anthology for the 2014 Hetalia Awards! Thanks to everyone who voted for it.

If you wish to read them separately and not the compilation, please read in this order:

Estonia's Love Life (Estonia's search for a partner) - this will be way out of chronological sequence, but all the other stories have later chapters that will spoil 'Estonia's Love Life' for you
Kissing Lessons (England-Romano romance)
Skirmish Brothers (Fun and games with Prussia, Denmark, and Romano; England appears in most of the chapters.)
Love in the Modern World (Further romantic adventures of both Engmano and DenPru) - this was originally concurrent with Skirmish Brothers, and was supposed to be all romance, whereas SB was the fun and games storyline.

Exit Strategy is an AU based on the Skirmish Brothers; a lot of little things in that story hark back to this universe.


Everything else is a standalone. I'm most proud of Exit Strategy, but my favorite is probably Britain is at Peace.

Regarding Anagram Stories: someone asked me to itemize all the chapters in the "Tiaraville" universe (chapter 1): 1, 33, 48, 49, 51, 57, 69, 77, 78, 79, 80, 86, 92, 94, 98, 99, 100, 103, 104, 112, 124, 125, 126, 143, 148, 149.

8/1/15: I took down Emotional Rescue (Captain America/Political Animals romantic crossover featuring Bucky and T. J.) because no one was reviewing it and, while I did have a sensible outline for the rest of it, simply didn't feel like writing 8 more chapters if no one is interested. Suffice it to say that in the last chapter, T. J. would have been very pleasantly surprised indeed. He would probably have cried.

I hope you enjoy my stories. Thank you for reading them.
