Author has written 3 stories for Ninja Turtles.

Being an avid reader even before I was able to read, I found myself wishing again and again that my favorite books had a different ending or special 'twist'. I stumbled across FanFiction a few years ago. At that time, I doubted my writing talent. To this day, I am still shy about my abilities. I hope to use this site as a means of increasing my belief in my writing 'power', as well as giving my favorite stories a personal touch.

7/20 For my fanfiction, Hurricane, I had to conduct a LOT of research. Namely, on the subject of shell repair. I knew if Leo was wounded internally, Don would have to crack open his lower plastron, just like a surgeon would crack a patient's ribs in order to reach the lungs/heart. A turtle's shell acts like its ribs. I needed to know how Don could possibly repair Leo's plastron after he'd been stabilized. According to tortoise.org, the best way to bridge a cracked shell is with epoxy resin and fiberglass cloth. It creates a waterproof seal that allows the turtle to heal internally, if never externally. That's right: if the damage is too severe, the turtle's shell/plastron may never heal. That's why Donny suffers from such guilt. Leo is a mutant turtle, though, so...who knows?

6/9/13 After a very intense battle through the second semester of school, I've returned. Greatly regretting not updating my fic until now...

2/20/13 I'm opening myself to requests. Not sure how it will go, but if you have a request by all means, make it! I am fairly fluent in TMNT, Harry Potter, Fullmetal Alchemist, Twilight (with mild regret), Supernatural (the TV show), House of Night, Vampire Diaries (books) and quite a few others. I have yet to try a crossover, so I'd say request those at your own risk. Cheers!

2/18/13 UPDATE: I'm back writing! Yay!! Finally, right? Wish me luck!

8/20 UPDATE : No, I'm not dead. And I haven't abandoned Fanfiction or my fanfic. I'm just having difficulties with my writing. I promise I'll get more chapters up eventually, just please give me time. Thank you! :)

11/18 UPDATE: I really hate going so long without uploading chapters. Sorry everyone! I am brimming with ideas now, but have limited amounts of free time. Luckily, I have a break from school coming up, so if all goes well I'll finally wrap up "Hurricane" and start a few others!
