Author has written 38 stories for Harry Potter, Fullmetal Alchemist, Detective Conan/Case Closed, and Magic Kaito/まじっく快斗.

Welcome! Not much here to see, though...

Things about me:

-I also have an account with the same nom de plume on Archive of Our Own.

-I hop fandoms based on what interests me at the moment.

-I have decided (after my failed HP fic) that I will not post a story unless I have completed writing it from end to end... unless it's a drabble series.

-I am extremely nit picky about my personal punctuation, spelling, and grammar, even if some errors do manage to slide through the cracks.

-I generally like to do introspective twists on my favorite characters, though they tend to take on a heavily angsty vibe.

-I write long chapters because it takes me forever to get to the point, and I apparently like the scenic routes.

-I love reading fanfics, but have a terrible tendency to forget to review—my sincerest apologies.

-I stink at writing romance—hence the reason my stories are (when not prompted) platonic and familial.

-I live and breathe science everyday and love it—though for the record, I do not work in anything remotely related to medicine.

-I am not sure where I draw my inspiration from, but wherever it is, it's seriously messed up.

-I can almost guarantee that all of my stories will have some sort of trigger, especially if they are dark and angsty—so beware.

-I tend to dabble within the bounds of canon while stretching what can be feasibly done by the characters.

-I am a huge fan of the Oxford comma, despite having a love-hate relationship with commas in general.

-I like to think I am a genius on some days, but most of the time I think I'm a complete and utter idiot.

-I am fanatical about fact-checking and enjoy doing background research to ensure as much truthfulness as I can manage—scientist, remember?

-I enjoy the use of em dashes—semicolons, not so much; though they are growing on me.

-I think that based on everything I have just said above, I probably have some issues I need to work out.

I hope you enjoy the crazy little fics my brain throws out.

-Tal.
