Author has written 15 stories for Liberty's Kids, Shaman King, Teen Titans, Artemis Fowl, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Hetalia - Axis Powers, Stargate: SG-1, Chronicles of Narnia, and Pacific Rim.

Time for some clarity and simplification: I am failsafe most places now and I've updated my pen name to reflect that. My pen name is also my tumblr url. I am simply failsafe on AO3, where I keep most of my writing now. However, I've seen what I think are some reasonably good changes here on ff.net, so I think I'm going to post here from time to time again. My old pen name was ClockworkSky.

In one week from my writing this, I will be graduating college with a BA in English and Philosophy (Religious Studies). I got this account ten years ago, and it's been quite the ride. I still love writing, and I'm kind of embarrassed by the quality of my early work, but in the interest of keeping this--my oldest extant online account--intact, I'm going to leave it alone.

If you're interested in who I am, you can check out my tumblr about page (where you can also find a list of current fandoms, etc). Rather than over-complicating this page again, though, I'll leave you with an abridged list of my general interests: narratives about youth, poetry, natural dialogue, characters who protect each other, families of choice.

Any and all constructive feedback is appreciated!
