Author has written 2 stories for Inuyasha.

Please do not feed the writer... ever.

About me? There are two sides of Crystal, the human (writer) and the role player. The human has grown up! Mostly. I am an accountant and specialize in all kinds of exciting pirate accounting things and... and... I will break out into song!

CHORUS:Up, up, up your premium. Up, up, up your premium.
PIRATE: Scribble away!
CHORUS: Up, up, up your premium.
PIRATE: And balance the books.
CHORUS: Up, up, up your premium.
PIRATE: Scribble away!
CHORUS: Up, up, up your premium.
PIRATE: But manage the books.
CHORUS: Up, up, up.

"It's fun to charter an accountant
And sail the wide accountancy,
To find, explore the funds offshore
And skirt the shoals of bankruptcy!

It can be manly in insurance.
We'll up your premium semi-annually.
It's all tax deductible.
We're fairly incorruptible,
We're sailing on the wide accountancy!"

- Accounting Shanty Lyrics by Monty Python

Now the avatar... that's different. I role play in a HUGE multiplayer game that is taking up too much of my real life! It's called SecondLife. I've been on there for several years now and met some amazing people. About a year ago I met some Inuyasha fanatics and I started gravitating towards roleplaying Sesshoumaru's mother. I live in a fantastic community of crazy amazing wonderful gorgeous people called 'Steelhead' and specifically live to create chaos in my 'grandson's life. If you go to SecondLife say hello to Steelhead it's a beautiful city. If you want to find me on SecondLife message me and I'll tell you my name in SecondLife so we can chat.

Onto the stories!

AngelsFalling (not yet released)
Rated Mature, filled with angst set amongst death and anger.

-To move on alone cold and hungry in a time and in a place that was unfamiliar to her. There are those who wish her for many reasons none of which meant her well being. Kagome wrapped her arms around herself as she cried out his name, "Inyasha I'm so sorry." On Hiatus until 'To Wash it All Away' is complete.

Release the Cat! (the cat is still in the bag)
Rated Mature, filled with complete and utter nonsense and underneath all of that you may be able to find a story. C
o-written years ago with Infinity Moon who is no longer here.
- This story is complete nonsense, don't read it. AU set in High School. 'This wasn't a high school... this was hell.' Will be drabbled upon after 'The Next Door' and 'To Wash it All Away' are complete.

The Next Door
Rated Mature, filled with angst, gore, sexual innuendo and extreme vulgarity. (Why write it? Why not!)
- Sometimes in the midst of grief one wishes for something that would have dire consequences. She will have to learn to stand on her own, her place was not by his side... Kikyou's was. (A higher rating will be released on Dokuga)
I've been told to point out this story has OC's. None of them are romantically involved with any of the characters.

To Wash it All Away (Incomplete)
Rated Mature, Angst, gore, death, and anger.
- I would have been spared the pain, but I would have missed the dance. A dedication for those who have loved and lost. (A higher rating will be posted on Dokuga)
*A remake of the original which will not be reposted nor sent to anyone as it has been reposted and plagarized without my consent. I am sorry

Author drabbling... don't read any of this either.

People have asked me about what I did differently from the old version of TWIAA to what I've done now. After several years I noticed my writing style had changed considerably. I took a good look at all the characters in the story, trimmed it and retold it in a way that the older me... the now me would retell it. This isn't my first story, sitting on my hard drive is about twenty five full novel sized stories based around various manga. Writing is easy, letting people read my work is hard. To Wash it All Away is probably the shortest story in the pile truly but it was the first one I released to the general public. After it was deleted I regretted the decision and rewriting it has been a good therapy for me.

What happened to Infinity Moon? We parted ways unfortunately when we both started school. She is a successful attorney that specializes in patents and I wish her the best.

My favorite story I've written has to be 'The Next Door' because it is a slight autobiography to a good friend as well granted there was no time machine or anything of that nature but the emotional connections to his parents and the journey of realization is his and after years of listening to the small bits of information he's given me about his own past I pieced together the life of a complicated, silent aloof individual. Chapter ten makes me cry every time I read it. I am glad people like the story, and do realize that the character I am writing is about a real person.

Tax season is over and I'm back again!
