Author has written 4 stories for Pokémon, Mega Man, and Avengers.

Fanfic projects in rotation: 8
Fanfic projects I'd like to get back to at some point: 6
Projects still in rotation only because I flatly refuse to drop them: 2
Projects that snuck into rotation when I wasn't looking: 1


I love worldbuilding and character exploration; which one I lean towards really depends on the series I'm writing in at the moment. I have my niches within my 'core' fandoms, and generally only stray into writing others via crossover. I also tend towards either really long novelizations, or vignettes/oneshots... which still get turned into long collection or series projects anyway. ;S

The first story I posted here, Time 'Til Dawn, taught me that having it online does not help my motivation to keep going; and since A) I do so many big rewrites and B) I don't like the idea of "abandoning" things here, I currently subscribe to the policy of "finish the fic before posting". This means that publishing for me is rather spaced out, especially for putting up new stories, but I'm okay with that. The actual writing is the most important process. :)

Thanks for visiting though; I wish I had something entertaining to say.


I am a moderator of the Writers Anonymous forum and the curator of its index. Should you decide to come visit, I hope you find it useful. :)

In addition, I have made an effort to seek out the best writing-oriented forums I can find in fandoms I'm interested in (or in the case of Mega Man, make one). I figured it couldn't hurt to promote them here in the hopes that these communities grow. I do check in fairly often when I'm online, as quiet as they are.

- PokeWrite - Avengers: The Writer's Forum - Hylian Tower - Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Writers United - The Sonic Writers Guild - The Mega Man Writers Forum -

I also poke my head in the Fanfic Help Desk on occasion to answer what questions I can. You can also find me under the same username on Spacebattles, and I recommend this thread series to anyone writing Zero no Tsukaima/Familiar of Zero: forums. spacebattles. com/threads/znt-back-to-basics-6-mostly-ln-canon-discussion. 268693/

What Makes a Hero by Selphie Kinneas 175 reviews
TP. Perpetual twilight; clandestine malevolence. Realms linked by an encroaching darkness. The fate of two worlds hangs in the balance and only a hero can save them. A retelling of Twilight Princess.

Arcadia by fortitudo reviews
Zero is discovered and awakened by Neo Arcadia, instead of the Resistance. An exploration of what could have transpired had the game's original events gone a bit differently.

An Empty Helmet by Dragon Claw92 reviews
Two years have passed since the events of MMZ 4, but Ciel was never able to let go. For losing heroes leaves a hole behind, one that very few things can fill, and a helmet only really fits the one it belongs to. But an unexpected visitor might just help Ciel feel whole once again.

Megaman ZX: Return to Zero by RiceKrispie reviews
Post-ZXA. Using the power of the biometals, Zero returns to the world of the living to defeat an old foe thought to be buried and forgotten. But what is it, and why has it returned? Rated T for moderately mature themes and fight scenes.

What the Cat Dragged In by Kryal reviews
Tony's pretty sure it's written into cosmic law somewhere: superheroes are not supposed be cute. Apparently, no one's told these two. ...He's okay with that.

Invisible by Twisted Skys reviews
He's been invisible for so long, it's hard to be seen sometimes. One-shots and mini archs of Jack's life.

Winter Child by Sisaat reviews
A collection of often related drabbles/oneshots and short arcs centering on Jack Frost. You might want to read them in order. Cover by me. (128. "When Fear is Fun") Halloween should have been Pitch's day, but things had turned differently.

Red Awakening by Bryon Nightshade reviews
X1 prequel. For X, the newly-discovered red robot will be many things. A puzzle to be solved. A peer to be challenged. A friend to be embraced. And a harbinger- the herald of darker times. Because, in the end, X and Zero are as different as sun and moon. Complete.

Real Women Wear Dresses by Nienna Nir reviews
It was supposed to be a simple night out in New York, a chance for the ladies of Avengers Tower to kick back with some drinks, get together, have a few laughs... So how did it all go so badly so quickly? Part of the Series: Coulson Lives, but the Avengers might be the death of him.

In Sleepless Watches of the Night by Nienna Nir reviews
War is Hell, and the Avengers have seen more than their fair share of Hell. Coming out the other side okay is all about the people who have your back. Really good hot chocolate doesn't hurt either. Part of the Series: Coulson Lives, but the Avengers might be the death of him.

As a Goddess Does by The Dimension Crossing Mew reviews
This is how a goddess views the world. This is how a goddess influences the world. The land of Nippon and the Celestial Brush Powers as viewed by the goddess Amaterasu.

Crimson by fortitudo reviews
From Ciel's perspective; originally intended to be her thoughts on Zero and the war with Neo Arcadia, but (probably) turned into something else along the way.

Believing is Seeing by nineteennintytwo reviews
A couple of extra presents under the tree, eggs being found in bushes where they weren't hidden, and coins appearing under pillows without explanation. Parents aren't stupid; they know the Guardians are real. They just never say so.

As Good As You Get by Penglaive reviews
In their final days, Light and Wily build androids that redefine the limits of robotics, but even as these masterpieces usher in a new era, echoes of the past remain. Human hands can only craft what human minds can understand, and even hearts made from the most carefully etched silicon can't escape the model they were based on.

The Legend of Zelda: Exoria by Sudentor reviews
After an age of medieval rule, a modern Kingdom of Hyrule enters a chaotic war with the nations of Gerudo and Valent. Against all odds, Crown Princess Zelda finds hope in the most unlikely of persons, the mysterious Hylian Joint Intelligence Agent Link.

Protective Reasoning by Dogstar-Black reviews
Bruce always knew that eventually, General Ross would find him again. Considering he was now an Avenger living in the not at all inconspicuous Stark Tower, it would probably be sooner rather than later. He just didn't expect the reactions of his new teammates to be so strong.* No longer a one-shot*, no shipping, but a lot of team friendship. Rating for Tony and Clint's mouths.

Sine Qua Non by Sequitur reviews
Season Three-Four gap. The Director has her reservations about the team leader position, McGee and Ziva have a cunning and psychotic plan, and Tony has a mental breakdown. Sort of, anyway.

Irony by PikaRox reviews
It's ironic, really... That I wrote this. Anyway, it involves a trainer, another trainer, and a bunch of pokemon. Yes, I'm horrible at writing summaries. It's better than it sounds. Just read it. Please.

Good Night, Alouette by RiceKrispie reviews
MMZ1-MMZ4. Zero takes on a mission that, while not quite his usual fare, is just as important. Warning: this fic contains large amounts of Alouette being cute.

Dragons of Revolution by Vathara reviews
In a world where a British captain is the adopted son of the Emperor, the Opium Wars probably didn't happen... meaning the Revolution may be very, very different.

Sword and Shield by Kayasuri-n reviews
Detective Brenda Johnson was looking for something suspicious when she entered the lab, not a connection between Team Rocket and gym leader Giovanni Rocketto. She certainly wasn't expecting Mewtwo. Rated M for Murder and other subjects. COMPLETE!

Time 'Til Dawn reviews
A human is thrown into the pokémon world, memory blank and nothing more than vague impressions left to go by. But with her new partner, a new day awaits. And maybe, just maybe, that will be enough to save the world. A novelization of PMD: Explorers of Sky.

Breakout reviews
In Ciel's defense, she really couldn't have expected the portal. In Clint's defense, tranquilizers are not fun. But once they get stuck in the same cell they have the only advantage they need: each other. The bad guys don't really have an excuse. Written for the WA Locked Room challenge.
