Author has written 12 stories for Song of the Lioness, Harry Potter, Fullmetal Alchemist, Lost Odyssey, Final Fantasy XII, Professor Layton, Criminal Minds, Sherlock, and Persona Series.

Birth of the Lioness - SotL

How the descend into madness started. A very rushed but whimsical piece in the end. Plot explanation was never my forte...

Narcissus - SotL

Because everybody has to write a kick-ass female assassin, at least once.

However We Know the Landscape of Love - HP

This is a love story of a girl building her own growth on others' tragedy, and of blind faith. Also a story about how beautiful Sirius is.

Remus Lupin, The Faultless Man - HP

Okay, yes, plot has always been my downfall, so marry me. Arlene is very hard to write--a spoiled sweet person who is superficial but not dumb, and so genuine that you can't help but like her. Actually scratch that, it's hard to write a likable OC, period.

The World Ends With You - HP

I've got to let the angst monster out somehow, and if Sirius/Remus isn't angst-baby, I don't know what is. Also sort of a take on let's see how effed up I can get these two boys.

Rising to Die - Lost Odyssey

An exploration into a character’s past. I’m fond of minor characters: more room to mold them.

Ulysses - Fullmetal Alchemist

So much about writing minor characters. Too angst-ridden, but Edward doesn't do anything halfheartedly, including angst. It was fun being maudlin/schmaltzy without inhibition. Also stream of consciousness is only doable for me in small quantities.

The Halcyon Days - FF XII

I always felt like Ashe needed closure at the end of the game, but would never really get it. When writing it, I felt like Ashe was too...well, too nice, too mellow, too politically benign, but I found that I couldn't write her any other way. I guess a princess might be hard and cutting as a diamond, but a queen grows to be a steel blade made of smiles.

Failing Galatea - Professor Layton

There is so much subtext in a Professor Layton game. The relationship between Luke, Flora and Layton seems to me to be so complex and full of worship and rebellion and failure. The end was rather abrupt, but I sort of wanted Layton to come to a realization that he might have been a brilliant archaeologist and a great puzzle-solver, but best intentions lead astray. The piece hinted at certain adult wiles that Layton prevented Luke and Flora from seeing in him. It needs more flesh though--I feel like this one had the most potential in all my stories, and--fittingly perhaps--failed the most.

Life of the Mind - Criminal Minds

I just couldn't get out the image of Reid doing something extraordinarily mundane--like picking up groceries--and yet fail at being mundane entirely. Surely this would draw some sort of attention? (I admit to having a soft spot for the adorkable.) And how fitting is Arendt to the theme of Criminal Minds?

The Meaning of Ithaca - BBC Sherlock

It's an extremely Johnlock non-Johnlock story; explores what it means to need and love somebody as much as John does Sherlock, and what that means to the rest of his life. Complete, but AU where series 3 is concerned...

ouroboros - Persona 3

Taking the idea that the protagonist is stuck in the game doing New Game Plus over and over again--and the changed personality that comes with it.


Fiction becomes a weird way to countenance yourself and to tell the truth instead of being a way to escape yourself or present yourself in a way you figure you will be maximally likable. This process is complicated and confusing and scary, and also hard work, but it turns out to be the best fun there is.
