Poll: So I was thinking about briefly writing in the POVs of my two evil OC's in Nothing Is Unbreakable. But I don't know if anyone is really interested in learning about their backstories beyond what is being/will be gathered from Raph's narrative (we will learn more, trust me). Let alone getting in their heads for a bout. What do you think? Vote Now!
Author has written 9 stories for Ninja Turtles.
Where I've been: Long story short, I've been struggling with depression. It has been so crippling that I haven't written in months. Couldn't even bring myself to try. Same goes for reading, which is why I haven't been reviewing anything. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. And I hope that if there's anyone still interested in my works, that you'll forgive me for the massive delay. God bless.
I post updates on my profile regarding story(s) progress whenever there's something new to report on. But if you ever have a question, feel free to drop me a PM.

No Day As Dark: Part one - Finished ... Part two: 50% complete ... Part three: Not yet started

And I tied for 2nd place for Best New Author!
Congrats to all the winners! And thank you to everyone who voted for me. It means more than I can say.
2013 TMNT fanfic competition: A Tangent of the Strangest Kind was nominated for Best Canon. Over Cocoa was nominated for Best Tradgedy/Angst and Best Sad Ending, and The Last Thread of Sanity was nominated for best multi-chapter.
None of my stories placed in the competition, but it's still such a huge honour to be nominated. Thank you! And mega big congrats to the winners! Y'all are amazing!
Looking for some new reads? Here are some of my favs! And if you like any of them, then tell others about them too! Spread the love. ;)
ThisCatalyst'sPen - There's just too many...some one shots/short stories: Broken Whisper, I Missed, and Behind the Mask If you want something longer, I recommend the entire Hear Me Scream Trilogy or Redemption.
Still want more? Just check out my favorite Author/Story list. XD
I'm a Psychology student, pursuing my doctorate! I'm also an insanely passionate writer with a love for National Novel Writing Month (which I 'won' in 2012, and again during the April 2014 camp session) and an eagerness to meet and help/learn from other writers. My first novel has somehow made it into the 3rd draft (thanks, in part, to my aforementioned love) and fan fiction has played a big part in my writing confidence. I started on this site hoping for some feedback but came away with so much more! So if you're like me in that sense, please give it a try. You won't regret it. :)
Let's see, I'm also a beta reader. So if you need one I'll be ecstatic to help! :D
So, what type of fan-fiction do I write, you ask? TMNT fan-fiction, of course! And of all the Turtles, Raphael is my favorite. So expect to see a ton of him if you decide to read my fics. Speaking of which. . .
What I've beta-ed: Check them out!
I'm eager to beta more! :)
Coming soon: 6:
No Day As Dark: Splinter keeps watch over his ailing son in what he fears are his last hours. But summer is near, and hope hangs around the father's heart that maybe, just maybe, it can be the saviour against the cold and sickness, as it had been so many times before. Requested by 'Starscream's Biglover'.
The Bugs Crawl In:Intent on revenge after falling victim to one of Mikey's prank, Raphael leads his brothers to an abandoned building on Halloween night. He never expected things to backfire like this... but thanks to good old turtle luck, he now faces an opponent who knows his every fear. A DARK piece.
It Ends Tonight: Entombed with an enemy who has nothing left to lose, one is hard pressed not to break.
Lesson: Oneshot. Mikey teaches Leo a lesson. Leo doesn't know if he should be impressed by his brother's perceptiveness, or terrified by what he learns from it.
Nothing Is Unbreakable AU Series: Title in progress. Summary is progress. This will be a series of alternative versions of NIU. Everything from different endings, chapters and short scenes that won't make it into the current version. Ideas and demands are welcome here, anything you'd like to see, just feel free to PM me them and I'll do my best to write them.
(Untitled): Summary in progress. Set after the events of the 2007 movie.
The Found: Sister one-shot to "The Lost." In which the events of said fic are told through the eyes of the brother.
Enough: ONESHOT. A father laments what he has lost. (Nominated for Best Splinter in Stealthy Stories' 2014 comp)
The Lost: ONE-SHOT. The gaze beneath the hood sought him out as he struggled. It was as menacing as it was mesmerizing. It called him away from the grave. It promised him rest. He felt the fatigue in his bones now, where before there was none. It dragged through him like a dagger, leaving him gaping and hollow; it drained him of his strength as only blood loss could ...Life and death, then
A Tangent Of The Strangest Kind: It's Friday night; the moon is high, the lowlifes are plentiful, and Raphael should be busting their heads with Casey Jones right about now, but the man is no where to be found. And the red masked turtle's search for his friend is about to take a tangent of the strangest kind. Just a OneShot that popped into my head after stumbling onto a Stealthy Stories challenge forum. ;D
Over Cocoa: OneShot. "The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone. -H. B. Stowe"... "...What did you do, Raph?" Amber eyes fell. Could he get out of this? Could he just stand up and walk out? Go topside for a few... days, maybe. One look as Leonardo, and Raphael knew that weeks wouldn't wane his determination. But couldn't Leo see this was killing him?
Watch Me Burn: With the existence of mutants revealed, the world was suddenly swallowed in flames. No place was left untouched by the blaze and the lives of both humans and mutants alike spiralled into chaos. This was the life that tore the turtles apart when they were just tots and it is the life they have learned to survive in. But together, it will be the life they rise above to become…heroes.
It's finally up! Check out this new story co-written by ThisCatalyst'sPen, TheThirdAetas and myself, your RedWritingRebel:
Nothing is Unbreakable: A brutal battle in a warehouse stir tension amongst the brothers. 2 weeks later that tension erupts in an epic fight between Raph and Leo; resulting in the red-clad turtle storming off. Suffering from unrelenting insomnia and deepening depression, he is ambushed and easily defeated... now the only question left for his brothers is: is he alive? Warning: Dripping with angst and bloody good violence.
The cover was made by ThisCatalyst'sPen (an incredible writer whose work you should check out. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!). Isn't it awesome? And isn't she awesome for making it? Shell yeah! ;)
Seeing Red: A drabble: EXPANDED! Yes, that's right, it is no longer 'just one little drabble I wrote after reading notawordsmith's drabble-a-day challenge bonus round', I'm writing more drabbles! Nothing above 500 words, I promise.. . . . It wasn't new to him, seeing red. No, it happened all the time, the haze of anger glazing over everything and riddling away his control . . includes notes on N.I.U.
This beautiful cover was made by TheThirdAetas, check out her incredible work! Cause it is amazing and so is she :D
The Last Thread Of Sanity: It was a mistake he can't even remember. A slip that spiraled into a dangerous freefall. Now Raphael's very sanity dangles by threads. And not even his family can help him when the fraying rope finally snaps and he finds himself battling his own evils. A land of memories, a realm of nightmares, hell itself... wherever it is, he's alone there. Alone and dying... Isn't he?
Have some time to kill? Well then, here are some randomly random facts about me!:

Age: six - at least, that's how long I've been writing for ;) Been alive for 20.

Music: Instruments while I write (I highly recommend ThePianoGuys!); anything meaningful or which has a good beat at any other time.
Favorite color: Red. Just cause.
Favorite books: Stand alone - The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Series - Delirium by Lauren Oliver. Otherwise - Anything with a strong plot and butt kicking protagonist!
Favorite writing genre: just one? Ha, yeah right. I live in the darker realms, but I enjoy just about anything--I'll leave it at that.
Favorite movies: Where the Red Fern Grows. The Hunger Games. Bridge to Terabithia. Others that I can't think of at the moment.

Something strange: I am right-hand dominate, but play all sports or games as a lefty and have been told multiple times that I 'write like I'm left-handed'. Huh?
