Author has written 16 stories for Left 4 Dead, Army of Two, Final Fantasy VIII, and Prototype.

Hello there, I haven't been around ff.net for a while. I write FF8, Army of Two, Left 4 Dead and Prototype fanfiction.

My style of writing is very emotionally-oriented. I use a lot of metaphors and verge on purple prose sometimes, but I try to keep the rhythm of the story fluid. Make it flow in such a way that it can be enjoyed by a casual reader or someone looking for an in-depth look at the workings of the subject.

I've been raised on a healthy dose of Stephen King, the X-files, Outer Limits, Saturday morning cartoons and anime that was more mature than I should have seen. I'm currently enjoying the Marvel Universe and several mangas like Gantz (which I cannot defend as anything more than a guilty pleasure. Its plot is all over the place.) My views on happy endings is skewed to the point that surviving is enough and my sense of humor teeters between dark and silly.

If you'd like to read some of my Army of Two adult fiction, I say head on over to the livejournal community Army_of_2. We're a small group so join up.

My old fics don't fit the standards around here, mostly ff8 SeiferxZell. You can find those on my fic journal.

Fics not found here:

AoT:
Mile High S&M Club: Clyde/Salem
Bigger Piece of the Pie - Uncensored: Alice M./Dalton

FF8:
Hands on Experience: Seifer/Zell
Insanity: Seifer/Zell
Save Points: Decompression is a bitch
Save Points: The return of the reckoning of the son Part deux

Voices of the Infection by Ferric reviews
A series of one-shot stories, each 'chapter' is its own story, unrelated to the previous. Chapter ten is my attempt at looking at the complicated and confusing relationship between Alex and Dana. I also attempt to get into Alex's head and consider how he might be changing over time considering how young he technically is at the start of the first game. Growing up hurts.

Betrayed by Saeto reviews
AU: Alex had only gone along with Cross out of a lack of options, and shared experience hadn't changed his opinion of the other man much: Cross was an arrogant jackass, self-serving to the end. Why Alex had stepped in to save him... he would never know.
