Author has written 30 stories for League of Legends, and Pokémon.

About Me: I do work in the copywriting and marketing fields, among other things, for a web development firm.


I mirror work from this account over to my account at ArchiveOfOurOwn, under the same name, traipsingexodus. Work that may be considered too extreme will be kept solely there (though the fact that Alive is still here on this site means that most work should show up here as well unless I decide to cross more lines) and work that is on my AO3 mirror is generally more "up to date" in terms of grammatical corrections and receives edits for misspelling passovers first. This is primarily because editing on AO3 is faster than editing here.

League of Legends work will likely never see its way to my AO3 account without significant editing for grammar or misspellings.


Continuity?

You'll have the easiest time following along with the Homunculus series if you read in this order: The Scholar's Folly (Second Autumn), The Errant's Hearth, Maison, Au Coup Par Coup, and Only Viridian.

Alive is worth a read if you're interested in understanding Karan and her history, though given the subject matter of the work, not everyone may be willing to read it.

Annabelle was a fun little exercise in giving a single picture life and meaning. Summer's End is a standalone work that has no bearing on the Homunculus series. Haunted has been made a part of the Homunculus canon and may see a follow up in the future. Only Viridian is on hiatus until I complete Errant's Hearth and Au Coup Par Coup.


Contact?

If you want to add me on Steam to yell at me, my productivity, and my taste, my steam display name is below. If you're having trouble picking me out, it's a grayscale image of Akiyama Yukari wearing dual binoculars.

Steam: exodus (search for url texodus)

I take commissions. Information about them is on my tumblr.


I welcome any PMs of any nature you may wish to send.


Profile image credit goes to malofantastic, who lives up to his name in how fantastic a friend he has been over the last decade. I would credit the remaining images but I do not have the sources anymore, save the sketchy images featuring Tristana and Rumble - credit goes to lulubro for those. The cover image used for The Scholar's Folly and The Errant's Hearth is fan art of Viola produced by Junjie-Oyan; the guy's work is fantastic and he's an all around good guy.

    Jewel of the Desert
    Beneath the sands of the Hoenn's desert lays an ancient place lost to time. Keala Hashimoto and her sneasel, Diane, creep through dark and winding tunnels, searching for secrets and clues of a dead history. Here, they must contend with the puzzles and traps of ancient man, and flee from the pursuit of modern man. [Sequel to Epilogue of Au Coup Par Coup]

    Honor, Courage And Rectitude reviews
    Beaten Castelia groans under the weight of corpses, as the fallen crime families that grew fat on her shoulders pile up. Daniel Winters and his bisharp, Charles, arrive to answer an old friend's request, and cut the last head from a hydra in its death throes: a man who went chasing game more dangerous than man.

    Au Coup Par Coup reviews
    An ill wind blows through Lumiose as savage murders shock the city. A king is rising to take his throne, opposed only by the Merchant and Mystic, the Mortician and Blade, the Errant and Embrace. Aided solely by their own wits and the powers of cryptic prophecy, they seek to impede his rise - but a king is not without his loyal subjects to stop such treachery.

    The Errant's Hearth reviews
    Brief looks into the lives of Johannes and Viola as they carve a place for themselves in Sinnoh's turbulent landscape, still experiencing an upheaval as laws, attitudes and the lines long etched between man and Pokemon are erased and drawn anew.

    These walls are our façade. Within and without, everything changes. Different summer. Different souls. Different places. Different hopes. And, alas, different problems, you must know. [M-Trainer/F-Weavile]

    Haunted
    You say that we haunt you. But truth has a terrible habit of being an ugly thing. Makes things go sideways and backwards. Awful, really. It's a bit ironic, yes? We don't haunt you, child. But I sorely wish we did.

    Only Viridian reviews
    Sinnohans had long been banned from entering Kanto, and every Ranger swore to uphold the laws of their region and maintain Kanto's position as a bastion against degeneracy. Uncertainty plagues Taro as he breaks these laws - all to deliver Kiyoko into the heart of the region he swore to defend from her ilk.

    Annabelle reviews
    As a Lopunny, Lauren couldn't talk. But if she could, she'd have a few choice words to describe Annabelle: "Here's what I use her for, I use her to keep Master safe, indeed I do." As the booms of a shotgun eclipsed the moans of the undead, most would agree: indeed she did.

    The Scholar's Folly (Second Autumn) reviews
    Words speak what think. And telepathy will glean what we feel. But meaning is implicit when not explained, built upon a foundation of understanding that begins at birth. Johannes has forgotten about this detail with Viola, and the devil is in the details indeed. [MTrainer/FGardevoir]

    Maison reviews
    The city of lights burns bright red in these winding streets of the quartier rouge; and tucked beneath the gaudy and neon exteriors of the usual collection of bars, brothels and hostels lurk dens of degeneracy. For the adventurous seeking more than the usual thrills of life on the surface, watch for the telltale phrase: "We serve more deviant tastes here, sir."
