Author has written 3 stories for Shingeki no Kyojin/進撃の巨人, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, and Yuri!!! on Ice.

Hey! TheHeart'sCompass here!

I'm a bit of an unpredictable writer, but when I do write, I put my heart into it. Hope you enjoy my work!


Name: Call me Ella!

Gender: Female

Age: 19

Location: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute aka RPI (And they say engineers can't write! PSH!... No, really, we can't.)

Major: Biomedical Engineering (Bit of a mouthful, ain't it? Thankfully, BME is short and sweet!)

Current Obsession: Miraculous Ladybug

Favorite Hobby: Playing Volleyball

States I've Lived In: VA, NM, MI, and NY

Likes: Anime, books, chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, puppies, crime shows, the color blue, mechanical pencils, gum, traveling, reading, writing, bendy straws, tea, and being a nerd.

Dislikes: People hating people, mornings, Mary-Sues, the feeling where the word you're looking for is right on the tip of your tongue, deer, dark chocolate, and squiggly red underlines.



I am aiming for an update approximately once a week. Sometimes sooner depending on chapter length and my current rate of writing. In an attempt to keep these updates semi-regular, I try to maintain a four chapter buffer between what I post and what I'm currently writing... So, to those of you begging for me not to hurt your precious cinnamon roll, he's likely already been hurt. What's been written can't be unwritten! It's out of my hands now!

Thank you for following and leaving reviews! You give me motivation!



I'm writing, I promise, but my current focus is on Break Down to Build Up. I apologize for the long delays, but that's simply how things go sometimes.

Remember: I'm human, I'm lazy, and I get distracted just as much as the next girl, but I'll try my best to write when I can.

Thanks for supporting me through all of this!


If you are looking for something else SnK centered that I had a hand in, Butterfly Chibi and I worked together on a little something: (UPDATE: I no longer intend to work in this collaboration, so there will be no additional chapters). The story is called The Outsider, so feel free to go drop by and say TheHeart'sCompass sent you!

The Outsider:

With Titans crashing through Walls and slowly destroying humanity on a daily basis, people would think there are not many ways for things to get any stranger... Oh, how wrong they'd be. Everybody is forced to rethink their black and white views on the world when a mysterious Outsider appears and makes it clear that she'd rather side with a Titan over a human any day.

Pairing: Levi x OC x Eren

Forever the Faithful Fan by Satchelle reviews
If YOU were sucked into the world of Death Note, your first thought would be - "Who slipped me acid?" Your second would be - "Who slipped me FREAK'N ACID?" And your third would be - "I know! I've read every volume and seen every episode like a good fanchild and I'll save the day! HOORAY!" Then things get complicated. LXOC

I don't like you! by BloodyMarryMe reviews
By pure chance and unluckiness Miyako finds herself at the Sabaody auction house as a slave. And of all the people, the one interested just had to be the most smug, egoistical and sadistic pirate she has ever met. So at least she can give him as much trouble as possible, right? LawXOC

Scarlet by Infinite Skye reviews
It starts out innocently, with a Shogi player who was defeated by a boy with scarlet hair. He remembers nothing, but she awkwardly tries to get closer, meets friends, and falls in love. Yet, the seasons have an intoxicating effect on the girl and the GOM as slowly, Winter comes, and reality shatters their daily lives. What is left, is hatred, of what they were supposed to love.

There are things rich, sexy, badass guys get up to. There are also things rich, sexy, badass guys would *like* to get up to. Love, lust, revenge, hatred, and a whole lot of drama.
