Author has written 30 stories for Walking Dead.

Hi everyone, thanks for taking a look at my profile. Sorry, there's not a lot on here, but I decided not to bother because I am rubbish at updating it.

Some info:

You can find me on Tumblr. My user name is septiclovebite. I used to have the same Twitter handle but I have recently changed it and locked the account, nothing personal, I would rather keep fandom stuff on Tumblr and this website. Some of my stories may mention the account in the author's notes, sorry for the confusion! If you don't have Tumblr, you can always message me here, I do my best to answer questions.

Questions that get asked a lot:

Swift Retreats arc: Probably done for forever. I appreciate I need to tie up some loose ends from Head and Heart, but I just can't write that kind of fluffy stuff anymore, not when I have seen the last two seasons.

Tempest: Probably done for forever too. I think I ran out of steam between seasons 2 and 3 and I felt like I misjudged some of the plot line horrifically. I'm sorry it ended rather abruptly, but it's not something I want to revisit.

A Heavy Cross: Yes, there is a kind of sequel in the works. Only a one shot, although it'll be a few thousand words. I don't want to write another epic story like that, but there is a little bit I would like to explore further. It's partially written, but it will take me a while to get it done.

Underneath the Sky of Blue: Ongoing. Possibly will reach a chapter ten.

Rhythmus: Ongoing. This will wrap up on chapter ten.
