Author has written 9 stories for Final Fantasy VIII, and Dragon Age.

Update 09/09/2011: Still around, though still very busy. I know it's been ages since I've updated, but with school and the wedding of one of my best friends coming up, I don't have much time to spare. Really doing my best to write more. If you're still reading my stories and still interested, thank you very much for your patience.

Name: Crystal, Crys

Sex: F

Stick with MSN for IMs. I still have my other two accounts, but I don't use them at all. I'd appreciate an e-mail before you add me, though. I only accept e-mails from my safe list, but I check my junk mail to see if anything that shouldn't be there somehow ended up there. Just a few words on the subject line will be fine.

The webpage listed above is my personal LiveJournal. It hasn't been updated in ages, but if you feel like friending me, go ahead. One of these days, I might actually start posting there more often.

My fic updates probably won't be frequent, and for that I'm sorry, but real life needs to come first.


A brief history of Crys:

So, a few things about me... I'm Greek (though I prefer the term Hellenic), I'm a cigarette and coffee addict, I love learning foreign languages, I'm studying computer science (it sounds far more impressive than it actually is) and I've been making up stories in my head ever since I knew what stories were. One day, being the brilliant child I was, I came to the conclusion that I should probably sit down and actually write everything that was in my head, lest I forget it all. The end result was a thrilling tale of unabashed plagiarism, self-insertion, bad puns and it was penned in the most flamboyant hot pink I could find. No, really.

My next attempt came nearly eight years later, when I was sixteen and I began writing my very first FF8 fic, which is no longer available here. I took it down because I intended to revamp it, something that never happened, but elements of that little story came to be in one of my latest fic attempts. My next story (Harry Potter fandom) is also not on the site any longer, but that's because it was the most horrible piece of writing imaginable. I ended up sticking with the FF8 fandom for many years to come. There are samples of my work here that make me want to claw my eyes out in horror, but at the same time, it's nice to have visible proof of my progress.

Thanks for stopping by!


Note regarding Chapter 35 of ASC: The chapter has been updated to include the original content in its entirety.

Current Projects:

Et in Arcadia Ego: This fic deals with something I've always wanted to explore in FF8 fiction: Guardian Forces. Hopefully, it will be everything I wished it was going to be when I got the original idea a good few years back. Blame Terry Pratchett. It's going slow, but I'm trying to juggle many things at once and as much as I'd love to write more, sometimes it's near impossible.

Welcome to Gotland: A rejected sub-plot from Arcadia. Since the two were once connected, they share many similarities (primarily the GF theme and some world-building), though they are now completely different stories. This is my pet project, meaning that it'll be relatively short and a bit of an outlet for me. Not too much research, I won't go crazy with the editing and I'll simply write it for the fun of it.
