Author has written 45 stories for Tales of Vesperia, and No. 6.

A friend introduced me to Tales of Vesperia and it ate my life. Fanfics resulted. Enjoy.

I have a tumblr for some reason, and an account with dreamwidth that has all of my stories, including a few drabbles that aren't posted here or on AO3. I've set up a linked table of contents on the dreamwidth profile page for easy navigation. My AO3 account contains the unabridged versions of a few things I have here as well as a few NSFW shorts.

Constructive criticism is welcome, though I would prefer it be in a PM rather than a comment to avoid spoilers.

I have a couple different timelines that several of my fics fit into. I'm posting the timelines since I wrote a lot of College Town out of order. Anything underlined should definitely be read chronologically. The others from Convictions are best read in order, but prolly won't be too confusing on their own.

Convictions:
Set in the canon universe, post game. May include spoilers for the game and the movie.
"The Things We Leave Behind”
"Smile"
“Conviction”
“Kidding”
“A Nice Change of Pace”
"Surprise"
“Letters Unsent”
"Letters Unwritten"

College Town:
A set of AU stories where Flynn and Yuri are in college (different colleges, btw) and share an apartment. Completely unrelated to the high school AU.
"Table for Two"
"First Time for Everything"
"Traditions"
"That Which Defines Us"
"Cooking Lessons"
"Night Out"
"Fight or Flight"
"Fever Dreams"
"Under the Covers"
"In Medias Res"
"Unintended Consequences"

Bonus nonsense:
"Nostalgia" was based off of the picture in this post.
Challenge that inspired "Posy" and the one for its follow up, "Memento"
This post contains the pic that inspired "The Sleep of the Just." I'd suggest reading it here rather than on tumblr, as I've corrected a few typos.

Tales of Vesperia essays:
My interpretation of Yuri based on the movie and the game

My characterization of Yuri & Flynn

Please read the author's notes. They are usually important. Some of them will help explain what's going on in the stories. Thank you.

Support
Flynn could be incredibly needy when he got sick. The result of having grown up—at least for a while—with parents, Yuri supposed. He repressed a smile. Annoying as he could be, he'd never been able to deny Flynn anything when he was sick. He would probably wind up spending the rest of the day adding on and taking off blankets, fetching soup, and singing silly old children's songs.

Posy
That was all the postcard said, just: 'Hey.' No comma to pause and turn it into the introduction of a letter. No period to end the thought. It was nothing but an impulse. Flynn was surprised it had ever even been sent. Two part modern AU.

Children of the Lost Moon reviews
Yuri glanced up at the sky. There were no stars to be seen from the city, but there was the moon. There was always the moon. It caught his eye far too easily, fascinating in the way the skeletal specimens of animals he'd seen in museums were: cold and bare, something long dead that hadn't been allowed to lay down and rest.
