Author has written 4 stories for Final Fantasy VIII.

Updates:

Sept. 12, 2007: Just posted my 4th and probably final story. I noticed that all my fics so far happened to start with the letter "L", and I have to give credit to my husband for coming up with this one's title. I do have a small part I wrote for someone else's story awhile back, and she is no longer on this site, so I just may turn that into my own fic on here in the upcoming months.

I am a married 30-year old female whose hobbies have varied over since I've joined here in 2001, wow!: newest hobby--knitting! RPG cinematic video games, drawing, scrapbooking, cooking, playing piano, and listening to instrumental music (which I think developed from playing great video games!) I absolutely love the Cirque de Soleil. I love to listen to its soundtracks while I read/draw/write. My fave manga is "Maison Ikkoku", which I know isn't majorly popular, but it's so romantically funny! I have an associate degree as a certified optician and lab technician. My favorite video game is Final Fantasy VIII and always will be.

In April 2005 I got the Griever tattooed on my lower back, which is that pic in my profile. It was my first tattoo, and I will always treasure it!

I haven't really gotten into any other games since it and am now devoting all my previous "video" time into writing, drawing, and other hobbies.

All my old fanart for FFVIII seems to have been deleted from the few sites I had it posted to over the years. Except for this one page at RPGamer:

But for some reason you can't find "Optical Goddess" when you search for me in the archives.

I've enjoyed all the tons of stories I've read over the years on this website. Also the friends I've met.

Lady In Blue by Regann reviews
COMPLETE. Squall finds himself in the midst of familiar people and vaguely recognizable places, but feels as if he's forgotten to do something important. How does it relate to the legend of a long-dead princess? Time & Space are strange, indeed.
