Author has written 5 stories for Bleach, Naruto, and Kill la Kill/ キルラキル.

I'm a writer who lost his way somewhere in his mid-20s, and who is now rediscovering the joys and challenges of writing through the dread power of fanfiction.

I love good dialogue, internally consistent narratives that avoid plot holes, organic character development and healthy doses of humour even in the most grimdark of fics. Imaginative worldbuilding is a bonus, but there's a great deal one can do even without it. While in the past I mostly stuck to writing comedy one-shots, which demand only one or two of the above from my limited skills, Lighting Up the Dark is my attempt to do something more. I also co-write a forum quest on SufficientVelocity called Marked for Death, a much more successfully rational reimagining of the Naruto setting which updates twice a week.

Marked for Death: a Rational Naruto Quest: forums.sufficientvelocity /threads/marked-for-death-a-rational-naruto-quest.24481/

Lightning Up the Dark is available in Russian at ficbook /readfic/4981310, courtesy of the magnificent Shinnra.

Update: After having received a number of queries, I should make this clear: Lighting Up the Dark is not dead. It is currently in the middle of a rewrite after I realised how much my skills have improved since I started. The rewrite is primarily stylistic, although it will also fill in some of the more awkward plot holes.

Update 17/03/17: If you enjoy my work, I now have a Patr eon at /velorien. Check it out for the latest version of the rewritten LUD prologue, and more updates to come!

Walk Two Lifetimes by Coolio101 reviews
Surviving in the 78th district of South Rukongai was tough. When you were a ten-year-old girl with a baby to take care of, it was even harder. Getting reincarnated as Kuchiki Hisana after dying of cancer was never part of the plan. SI/OC, Pre-Canon
