Author has written 16 stories for Tales of Graces, and Tales of Xillia.

A 24-year-old biologist with a tad too many hobbies. They include anime and manga, videogames (mostly JRPGs), and some more average stuff like reading, music, and such.

Also a huge Tales fan who is completely obsessed with RichAss - I've never loved a pairing half as much as I love those two. They're even responsible for getting me into writing fanfiction!

I really appreciate any form of feedback and constructive criticism, so feel free to speak your mind if you decide to leave me a review.

(I'm also on Tumblr!)

2015 Update: I am no longer uploading all of my fics on FF.net. While I will keep posting some stories here, if you want a better archive of everything I've written, please head on to my AO3. (I also tend to post my fics first over there)

Even when Asbel and Richard could not see each other often, they always exchanged letters. While it is better than no contact, words on a page can often hide a storm in a heart. RichAss Week Day Three.

30 Times We Never Kissed by Iori-chan-sempai reviews
To say that it was love would be an understatement. Collection of Jin x Ragna oneshots. Be wary of incest, possibly graphic sex, and gratuitous flashbacking. Oneshot #20: A young test subject finds a new family, a life, and a name.

re:do by moogleizer reviews
Sort of a reincarnation AU, many, many decades after L&L. Ephinea is not really the same. Much that should not have been forgotten has faded from memory. Drama and suffering. Blah blah blah. POV switches between two characters. Yup.

Grey? Not Today by assbele reviews
RichAss, post F. Asbel can't figure out why Richard is avoiding him and drifting away. He just wants to help, but doesn't realize the reason Richard won't let him can't exactly be helped - and it all spirals out of control from there. He doesn't know what to do, but luckily, he's not facing it alone. A little help here and there can return a grey world to colour in no time at all.

When the Lights Go Out by Rolling Tomorrow reviews
