Author has written 14 stories for Song of the Lioness, Harry Potter, Fullmetal Alchemist, Lost Odyssey, Final Fantasy XII, Professor Layton, Criminal Minds, Sherlock, Persona Series, Misc. Games, and Final Fantasy XV.
Birth of the Lioness - SotL
How the descend into ff madness started. A very rushed but whimsical piece in the end. Plot was never my forte, so marry me.
Narcissus - SotL
Old, cringe-inducing story, but I don't have the heart to take it down, 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. Larka is someone that I could really fall in love with.
Remus Lupin, The Faultless Man - HP
Because he deserves his own story. Arlene is very hard to write: a spoiled yet sweet girl who is superficial but not dumb. Actually, it's just hard to write a likable OC, period.
The World Ends With You - HP
The angst monster has to come out somehow, and if Sirius/Remus isn't angst-baby, I don't know what is. Also a take on 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.
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 mellow, too 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 is so complex and full of worship and rebellion and failure. The piece hinted at certain adult wiles that Layton prevented Luke and Flora from seeing in him. I wanted Layton to come to a realization that he might have been a brilliant archaeologist and puzzle-solver, but he was oblivious at best when it came to parenting. 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 of my head the image of Reid doing something extraordinarily mundane, like picking up groceries, and yet fail at being mundane entirely. (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, especially with Mary/Marigold. Complete, but AU from series 3 henceforth.
ouroboros - Persona 3
Taking the idea that the female protagonist is stuck in the game doing New Game Plus over and over again, leading to her changed personality.
Seeking Clarity - Sorcery!
A sequel that includes a prequel of the female protagonist, including her relationship with the black-clad, black-masked assassin that she sort of bizarrely romanced along the way (does Flanker remind you of Westley from Princess Bride or what??). Not a well-known source material: Steve Jackson's Sorcery! series was a series of choose your own adventure books that got developed into a mobile adventure-narrative game by inkle. Whoever likes fantasy/adventure and hasn't played the game, well, GO PLAY IT. Such good storytelling.
A Hundred Years of Night - FF XV
Filling in the gap of the ten years that Noctis slept inside the crystal, and how he came out and gathered his old band again - because it's silly to assume that the three of them just stayed there in Hammerhead or conveniently all reconvened the exact time Noct came out.
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.
