Author has written 17 stories for StarTrek: The Next Generation, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Once Upon a Time, Babylon 5, Pirates of the Caribbean, Hunger Games, and X-Men: The Movie.
Hello there, intrepid profile-readers. I'm Elim, a geeky young math teacher from House Baelish currently living at 221-B Baker Street in a rural flyover state that would probably be District Nine. After being sorted into Hufflepuff and welcomed into Hermes' cabin at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, I chose Amity as my faction and flew away with the Ninth Doctor. Once he dropped me off two months earlier, I found my way back through the wardrobe, with a short detour through Mirkwood and the swamps of Dagobah.
In my spare time, I inspect dinosaur-filled theme parks, run a tailor shop on a space station, and serve as the ambassador to Minbar. I enjoy Martian-grown potatoes, lembas bread, and shawarma.
I'm a Catholic, a political moderate, and a cat-lover. Things like this make my heart feel all warm and fuzzy.
I write mostly Hunger Games fics but dabble in crossovers. I finish SYOTs. I'm a lousy reviewer, so, by extension, nothing in my stories is based on how often other folks review.
I tend to submit younger, outer-district males. My submitted tributes have a solid average of 16th place.
"Only in darkness are we revealed. Goodness is not goodness that seeks advantage. Good is good in the final hour, in the deepest pit, without hope, without witness, without reward. Virtue is only virtue in extremis."

A Few Quotes:
"What I want to know is, of the stories you've told me, which ones were true, and which ones weren't?"
"My dear doctor, they were all true."
"Even the lies?"
"Especially the lies."
- Dr. Julian Bashir and my "namesake," Elim Garak
"Courage isn't just a matter of not being frightened, you know. It's being afraid and doing what you have to do, anyway."
- the (Third) Doctor
"Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you."
- Tyrion Lannister
"In every moment, there is the possibility of a better future, but you people won't believe it. And because you won't believe it, you won't do what is necessary to make it a reality. So you dwell on this terrible future and you resign yourselves to it for one reason: because that future doesn't ask anything of you today."
- David Nix
"I am pleased to see that we have differences. May we together become greater than the sum of both of us."
"The truth is usually just an excuse for a lack of imagination."
- Elim Garak
"Every human being has a basic instinct to help each other out. It might not seem that way sometimes, but it's true. If a hiker gets lost in the mountains, people will coordinate a search. If a train crashes, people will line up to give blood. If an earthquake levels a city, people all over the world will send emergency supplies. This is so fundamentally human that it's found in every culture without exception. Yes, there are assholes who just don't care, but they're massively outnumbered by the people who do."
- Mark Watney, The Martian
