Author has written 27 stories for Invader Zim, Legend of Zelda, Phantom of the Opera, Rhapsody Trilogy, Pokémon, Unreal Tournament, Animorphs, Princess Tutu, Metroid, Kirby, Elder Scroll series, Harvest Moon, Aliens/Predator, and Undertale.

Hello, it's nice to meet you. I'm Tapioca. I've been here a while.

Nearly all of my stories written before 2010 are terrible, horrible things. I've left them up here for nostalgic purposes only, so I don't suggest you read any of them. If there's anything more than a couple years old I probably won't finish it, but like any emotional sap-head I don't like getting rid of stuff, so.

I'm still working on the three stories below, even if it will take me a little bit to update them due to my obligations at work. Thanks to all of you for your patience!

I am also on AO3 as tapioca_two_step, for your reading pleasure. Or displeasure, as the case may be.

STORY STATS

Joywell. The adventures of a garbageman (well, garbage girl) and her reluctant partnership with an Unblooded Yautja in a facility full of nightmares. This one's going to be pretty lighthearted and exciting and full of inter-species awkwardness.

The Road to Kynesgrove. Working hard on this one! About eleven chapters left. :3

Umbra. Farting around the Unreal universe is still my favorite thing. This one will eventually get finished. I might even rewrite Lux, since it so desperately needs to be done. Who knows.

Everything else is extremely dead. New stuff will always be trickling down the pipeline, though.
