Author has written 35 stories for Legend of Korra.

I'm pretty much just obsessed with Avatar: the Last Airbender and the Legend of Korra, so expect a lot of that. I tend to stick to whatever pairings I suspect will be canon, even if I read and enjoy any ship combination thinkable. Thanks for reading!

I now have a tumblr where I will be posting fic and any other junk I like, under the same name: slacktension.tumblr.com
