Author has written 12 stories for Chaos Walking series, Pendragon, Pokémon, Hetalia - Axis Powers, and Sket Dance.

I am an author returning to FanFiction.net after a long hiatus. I'm very excited to be back, and hope that you'll enjoy my stories...and the way too many quotations I've put on my profile x)


"Many waters cannot quench love, and neither can the floods drown it." -Yalith, Many Waters. Originally based on Songs of Solomon 8:7.


"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell." -C.S. Lewis

"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it." -C.S. Lewis

"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." -C.S. Lewis


"How can anyone govern a nation that has two hundred and forty-six different kinds of cheese?" -Charles de Gaulle, referring to France.


"What exactly is a French before it's fried?" -Vo Spader, Pendragon.


"I'm having a major hat crisis. Could you try to steal Pikachu some other time?" -Ash

"Do you always need a reason to help someone?" -Ash

"A good friend left me... and I miss her every day. But I know we'll always be friends. Forever." -Ash

"The chosen one? I feel more like the frozen one." -Ash

"Just once, I'd like to make a dramatic exit that DOESN'T involve a life-threatening explosion." -Jessie, TR

"I could use pants." Slowking

-Pokémon


"Those are the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand.

But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances to turn and back only they didn't.
They kept going. Because they were holding onto something... There's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it's worth fighting for."

-Samwise Gamgee, LOTR movie


I don't even know if this message
that I'm overly concerned with will reach anyone.
Surely, forever and ever, I will be
a mad Matryoshka covered in patches.

-Miku Hatsune and Gumi (Vocaloid)
