ABOUT ME

I am a female college writing teacher by day and an ass-kicking Kung Fu queen by night. My sun sign is Cancer, my Chinese sign is the Monkey, and I'm really fascinated by angels. I'm really into the supernatural and occult, period. I love writing dark stuff, but I don't really know what genre I fall into, truthfully.

My pen name was given to me by my classmates in grad school; my creative writing was dark and creepy, so they started calling me Edgar Allan Poe's Daughter as a joke. I liked it so much that it stuck. My other nickname is "The Scientist," first given to me by my original Kung Fu teacher, because I'm inherently curious, want to learn everything that I can, and spend most of my life dissecting and analyzing the world around me. In fact, if I hadn't majored in English and Creative Writing in college, I probably would've studied astrophysics.

A LITTLE ABOUT MY STORIES

SUB-ZERO: ORIGINS

I always loved Sub-Zero's character from the time I was a kid and played the original games. I tried to write an origins story in high school because I found his character so compelling, but for whatever reason, I abandoned it. Fast-forward to a year ago, and I fell in love with the new MK9 game. At the same time, I was seriously stressing about school, teaching, and just life in general. Earning a degree in creative writing isn't all fun and games; there's a lot of boring theory to study as well. But even the creative writing itself is extremely difficult because my classmates and I are expected to produce stories worthy of the Canon (notice the capital C). So I decided that I just wanted to write something fun without the burden of having to call it high art. Through my revived interest in MK, I accidentally stumbled onto this site, and I wondered how a piece of fan fiction would look if someone who was formally trained in creative writing set out to write it. And that's how Sub-Zero: Origins was born.

So I knew that I wanted to write the younger Sub-Zero's story, and I wanted to do so using Joseph Campbell's hero monomyth theory as a framework. So basically, it starts with his decision to leave the Lin Kuei with Smoke, and it ends with the final battle with Shao Kahn. About 2/3 of the way through, I introduce a couple of original characters that I designed to help Sub-Zero grow as a person. If you're on the anti-OC bandwagon, this as well as Frostbitten may not be the story for you...but in my defense, I tried to write them in a much different way than most other writers would have, so I'd like you to give them a chance. If you can't, then just move on.

This story is complete.

FROSTBITTEN

I knew, once Origins was finished, that I wanted to continue with Sub-Zero's story according to the games, and therefore I needed to introduce Frost. Using the conflict of MK:DA as the background problem in my story, I began to write about how Sub-Zero took over the Lin Kuei and how Frost came to be his student. While he deals with her and the Deadly Alliance, he's also trying to deal with problems in his personal life. I tried to be accurate towards my own experiences in romance and teaching, but I know a lot of people will probably find Sub-Zero to be OOC as a result.

Frankly, I don't care if he is OOC. The MK games are awesome, but they leave a lot to the imagination, and the whole point of fan fiction is to fill in those discrepancies however we choose. My vision might not jive with yours. There's nothing wrong with that, it just means we have different ideas about how things should be. If you don't like my interpretation, that's cool, but I strongly suggest you write your own so that readers have an opportunity to gain a new perspective. Okay, end of rant.

This story is complete. Finally. LOL

THE CURSE OF THE DRAGON MEDALLION

When I started Frostbitten, I didn't originally plan for it to be left on a cliffhanger, but as it happens I had to do just that because that's where the story naturally felt like ending. So The Curse of the Dragon Medallion picks up exactly where Frostbitten left off. It loosely follows the events of MK: Deception, starting with Raiden's sacrifice and moving forward as Earthrealm's Champions try to figure out a way to defeat Onaga.

I'm really excited about this story because I've introduced the landscape and politics of Outworld in a way I've never seen anyone else do, and I've explored the various cultures therein, particularly the Hydromancers and the Cryomancers, but also the Shokan, the Centaurs, and the Osh Tekk. There are some familiar characters - some you want to see, some you don't want to see - but there's also a whole bunch of new faces joining the party. In this story, I introduced Fujin, Hotaru, and Kenshi as well as a few new OCs. You might even say that Sub-Zero's Dragon Medallion is a character too.

This story is complete.

AFTERMATH

After I finished The Curse of the Dragon Medallion, I realized that I had a few threads that begged the question, "Well, what happened to them now?" So I started writing each character's short story about what he/she did when they returned home from their adventure in Outworld. Each chapter is told from the perspective of a single character.

This story is in progress.

ASCENSION

When the MK comics came out alongside MKX, I knew I wanted to do a story incorporating those themes and ideas. Therefore, Ascension was born. Set nearly 19 years after the events of The Curse of the Dragon Medallion, on the eve of her Rite of Ascension, Olivia, Sub-Zero's oldest daughter, finds herself in a spot of trouble that lands her in a foreign exchange program with the Shirai Ryu. But after a rough month training under the restored Hanzo Hasashi, she and Takeda are taken hostage and dragged to Outworld where they embark on an adventure to survive the hostile environment. I envisioned something of a brat when I thought of her, and I wanted her to grow into a noble warrior worthy of being in the Lin Kuei. So I threw the undersung villain, Reiko, at her, who I created to be far more sympathetic than my past villains. Along her journey of ascension, she meets characters such as Skarlet, Erron Black, Mileena, and Tanya.

This story is in progress.

TALES OF THE LIN KUEI

While I was writing Origins, funny ideas kept popping into my head with regards to Kuai Liang and Tomas' childhood. I started to think of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, and it seemed fitting that the two of them were ornery children. I mentioned some of these thoughts in my story when they'd be talking and one of them would be reminded of something from their past. But wouldn't it be cool if I took those tiny little thoughts and expanded them into short stories?

So rather than create a single, unified novel where every chapter is dependent on the others, I created this. It's basically a collection of one-shot stories that recount Kuai Liang, Bi-han, and Tomas' misadventures as children. Since my other two stories are kind of dark and sad, I wanted this one to be lighthearted and humorous. There are some dark moments, but generally these are funny. Well, at least I've tried to make them funny. I'm not much of a comedian!

This is also currently in progress.

COMING OF AGE

This is a short story about Bi-han's eighteenth birthday. In the Lin Kuei, boys who turn eighteen are sent on their very first solo missions, and these missions usually entail assassinating someone. Bi-han, ever-resentful of the Order, resists going on his mission. He doesn't want to kill a person just to prove he's a man, yet he also can't refuse because Kuai Liang will pay the price. But when he finds out that his target is a young boy by the name of Liu Kang, a Shaolin Monk, he must overcome both an ethical dilemma as well as a physical one.

I originally was going to include this story in Tales of the Lin Kuei, but there were two problems with doing that. The first was that in order to adequately describe what I wanted, it couldn't be a one-shot like the other tales were. I figured it needed at least two, possibly three chapters. So, there was that. But then, I also knew it was going to be darker than the other tales, and I didn't want to detract from the comedic tone I'd established with them.

This story is currently in progress. Someday, I'll finish it.

If you have any questions for me about my stories, how I came up with certain ideas, or if you need writing advice, feel free to PM me. Well, I don't bite if you're kind and respectful. If you're rude, all bets are off.

Favorite Games: Mortal Kombat series, Dante's Inferno, Darksiders, Darksiders 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, Tetris. Okay, I'm just gonna come right out and say it. I'm not much of a gamer. I don't really play a lot of video games, and with a few exceptions, I'm not anxious to. It's like pulling teeth to get me to play new games; I am a creature of habit. I was almost two years late to the Angry Birds party, if that tells you anything.

Favorite Books: Anything by Edgar Allan Poe, Stephen King, and Nathaniel Hawthorne, Dante's Inferno, Paradise Lost, Light in August, The Road, The Things They Carried, the Harry Potter series, The Triggering Town, basically too many to name...

Likes: Writing; reading; superhero, action, and horror movies (none of that chick-flick crap); rock/hard rock/metal music; big dogs; my Hung Gar classes; watching/playing sports, especially football and baseball (Go Broncos, Go Rockies!); folklore; cherry cokes from Sonic

Dislikes: People who don't read anything ever; drama queens; that vampires, zombies, and werewolves have become a fashion trend; girls who get by in life on their looks and not their brains; bad drivers; people who are fascists about their religious beliefs; people who are fascists about their political beliefs; people who refer to all martial arts as "karate"; those jerks who hang fake testicles from their trucks' undercarriages


SHOUT OUTS

I have an army of devoted an awesome readers who I frequently turn to for advice and support. And, they're kind enough to put up with my incessant neuroses. It may come as a shock to you all, but the whole "has-her-shit-together-as-a-writer" thing that I seem to excel at is the furthest thing from the truth! I'm a downright lunatic about writing. No seriously, I am. So, my band of pen-pals work tirelessly to keep me sane. Therefore, they deserve a perpetual honorable mention

Obelisk of Light I've had many interesting conversations with my pen pal about everything you can think of, but of course our favorite subject is MK. Her love of Raiden and especially Fujin has infected me, so now I care about them way more than I used to. She keeps me honest, and for that, I'm immensely grateful. She never hesitates to tell me the truth, even if it might hurt my feelings, and so I feel like I've grown as a writer just by talking to her.

iceangelmkx She's been one of my writing pen pals for the last few years, and through her, I've grown much fonder of Kenshi. I enjoy trading ideas with her, trading writing woes, and just talking about stuff in general. She has some great stories about Kenshi, and I'm currently reading her epic saga, The Ketsueki Quadrilogy, which is an epic crossover of MK, Soul Caliber, Street Fighter, and Tekken. She's put a lot of work into it, and spent many years writing it, so I hope you go give it a read and show her some love. Also, go check out her Kenshi-centric story called Blade of Vengeance.

en-lumine She's also been one of my writing pen pals for the last few years as well, and like iceangelmkx, she's helped me out a lot with Kenshi. Between the both of them, I've gone from moderately caring about him to being a fan. Go check out her story, The Takahashi Family Saga, for a great read. My mind is constantly blown by how brilliantly she writes character-driven stories. I promise you won't be disappointed.

hell-on-training-wheels She is one of my newer pen pals; we've been friends for little over a year. As with all my writing pen pals, we love to chew the fat about MK, but we also enjoy talking about other things as well. if you catch us on the right day on Tumblr, we have gif wars that become absolutely ridiculous and hysterical before it's all said and done. I turn to her for advice on how to write Erron Black because she is our resident expert on the Outworld cowboy. I immensely enjoy Desperado, her primary fic, though she has several shorter ones from MK and other fandoms, including a crossover fic called Survival of the Fittest, which combines Alien, Predator, and MK.


A WORD ABOUT REVIEWING

I hate that I even have to include a note about this, but unfortunately there are far too many assholes trolling the webs, so here's the thing. In my creative writing workshops, there is this universal rule. If you have negative feedback to give, that's fine. But do so in a civilized manner. Tell the writer the problem you had with their story, devoid of any personal attacks, and then give them reasonable suggestions as to how to fix the problem. This is a policy that I have adopted for online writing. There is absolutely no reason to be hateful and to cuss someone out simply because you didn't like their story. To do so not only shows what tiny mind you have, it also looks immature and no one, least of all me, will take you seriously.

All too often I've seen trolls launch absolutely mean-spirited attacks on writers - not just me, but others as well - and I find this uncalled for. It's my biggest pet peeve about reviewing. For one, these reviews tend to be nothing but an exercise in swearing. They usually don't give specific reasons for their dislike of the story, and I've yet to see one who actually suggested a way to make the story better. In the ones I've seen who actually have profiles, they never have any stories of their own under their belts. I have to laugh at that. For one, you have the "guts" to launch a derogatory tirade against my writing skills when you're too afraid to write your own story? And for two, why should I take you seriously when I have no solid evidence that you even know what you're talking about as a writer?

When reviewing, please consider that as writers, we're all on the same path. It's just that some of us are further ahead on that path than others. Whether you're a young writer just starting out, or if you're like me and have been writing for years, you bring something very unique to the table. Therefore, you are obligated to share your knowledge with others. I just ask that when you review, be it my story or someone else's, you share that knowledge in a civilized manner so that we can all graduate to that next stage of the journey like adults.

So, would-be flamers, let me be as blunt as I can so that we completely understand each other. You are the very worst type of scumbag on the internet. I disdain you with all of my heart for your idiocy and immaturity. As far as I'm concerned, you are beneath dog shit on the karmic totem pole. I will, under no circumstances, tolerate your abuse. So you should know that if you want to flame me, I will first reply with a tongue-lashing like only I can give. And then I will block and report you. If you think you're gonna be clever and review as a guest, think again. I have my review moderator turned on, and I'll simply delete your comment so no one else sees it. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Idiot flamers aside, I welcome your reviews of my stories, be they positive or negative in nature. Reviews are love, and I really do appreciate that you take the time to let me know what you think. I am constantly motivated to keep writing because I know you're out there, reading my stuff. And I just can't thank you serious reviewers enough.

This is a collection of short stories that recount moments in Sub-Zero's, Tundra's, and Smoke's childhoods.

This is a sequel to "Sub-Zero: Origins" and loosely follows the events of Deadly Alliance.
