Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter, and Elder Scroll series.

UPDATE 3/18/2017

RIFT is my latest story, taking place in the Skyrim universe. It chronicles the story of a young woman - Dani - who finds herself mysteriously transplanted into a world she's only previously known as a video game. It follows her journey with the Thieves Guild and coming to grips with her destiny as the dovahkiin. It is complete, and I will install it in three 5-chapter sections as I do my final read through. I spent 1 year off-and-on working on it, and during that time it went from a 3rd person to a 1st person narrative. It stands as my longest story, and only the second one I've ever actually completed... so, I'm pretty proud of it.

My next planned project is another Skyrim fic, this time featuring The Companions.

I also have two Harry Potter fics, but they are both on hold indefinitely. I have them both plotted out, there is just no drive to write them at the moment.


As a side note, I've become quite picky with my reading, compared to when I was a teenager. I promise that when I do eventually push an update, though I am by no means a professional writer, it will be written with my standards in mind. This promise includes:

  1. Grammar/spelling checks, and re-checks. I don't have a BETA, but I feel like I have a steady grasp of my native tongue to handle this job well enough.
  2. No Mary-Sue or Gary-Stu. I write primarily from a female perspective, but I will make it my endeavor to prevent writing anyone who is too perfect. My characters will be as multi-faceted and real as my skill allows.
  3. No OOC. I will not have characters acting in an irrational/un-canon way without a plausible explanation.
  4. No clichés. It's inevitable that similar plot devices might be used when writing a particular genre, but I will spice things up as well as I can.
  5. Author Notes? Forget about it! I loathe author notes, especially when they take up more than 1/3 of the chapter. My guarantee is to add an A/N only if it's necessary, and to keep them as brief as possible.
  6. Chapter length! Word length, in my opinion, directly correlates to how much time, care, and thought an author is willing to put into their work. I aim for a minimum of 5k words per installment.
  7. Reviews. I will never ask, beg, or hold an update hostage for reviews. I write because I have an idea and want to share it while doing my best at improving my storytelling.
