Author has written 18 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, Zoom, Death Note, Young Justice, Bleach, and Shingeki no Kyojin/進撃の巨人.

Welcome to my profile! Have a look around and hit me up on my blog! Oh, and I really, really need a beta reader. Again.

I'm a hard-rocking, video-gaming, anime-watching semi-metalhead weirdo who aspires to be an English teacher in Japan. I'm also a Christian who will cuddle kittens and babble about Doritos as soon as hit you for doing something stupid. So yeah, about the whole ignorant, straight-laced, 'Murican Christian stereotype...

I'm crazy about the Visoreds. You should probably know that, if you can't tell from my list of fics. Kensei's my favorite, so of course I absolutely whale on him, followed by Rose, Shinji, Love, Hachi, Mashiro, Lisa, and Hiyori in that order.


Fanfictions of Note:

Human–Inhuman: Yokai!AU of Bleach, largely follows canon because I'm uncreative

  • Ongoing
  • Ideas would be appreciated, as people have suggested deviation from canon but I don't really have ideas for how to do that
  • Ships: IchiTatsu in the future.
  • Masks Hiding Masks: Slight change from Bleach canon in which the Visored were not reported by Aizen. Their lives pretty much go downhill from there.

  • Completed, with a sequel up
  • OCs are present as the sixth seat of the Ninth Division and the fourth seat of the Tenth Division.
  • Ships: Implied Urahara/Yoruichi, Lisa/Kyouraku
  • Welcome Back, Freaks: Three of the Visored have returned to Soul Society as captains, but their trials aren't over as they readjust to being normal.

  • Ongoing
  • Ideas appreciated because I can't think of everyday Shinigami things
  • Ships: Maybe hinting at Hinamori/Shinji.
  • A Fool's Dance: A century after the Visoreds' transformations, the off-and-on battles between the forces of Hueco Mundo and of Seireitei are about to explode into a full-on war. Hirako Shinji is sent to Karakura Town to recruit high-spec humans to do the Shinigami's duties for them when they can't afford to spare troops. But as with everything concerning the unofficial leader of the Visoreds, ulterior motives and secret machinations lurk everywhere. And where's Ichigo?

  • Ongoing
  • Some OOC, but it's justified by the story's predecessor
  • OCs present, most for flavor
  • Ships: Kensei/OC, Lisa/Kyouraku, implied Urahara/Yoruichi
  • Sort: Category . Published . Updated . Title . Words . Chapters . Reviews . Status .

Locked up in Muken with half-healed wounds and helpless rage, Ichigo gets another chance to save his fellow Visored when the Spirit King whisks him away and offers him a deal.

    Yamamoto Genryūsai Shigekuni is, at heart, an old man who likes his tea prepared a certain way and has a soft spot for talented youngsters. His latest fledgling seems to be one Kurosaki Ichigo, substitute soul reaper. (Alternatively, a story in which Yamamoto is a crafty old man, Ichigo grows up to be utterly terrifying, and Aizen doesn't stand a chance.)
