Author has written 6 stories for Evangelion, Vampire Princess Miyu, Fairy Tales, StarCraft, and Tekken.

To me, fan fiction is stories written by fans for fans. Unfortunately, I think a lot of fan fiction out there fails one or both of those criteria. Some stories lack a basic understanding of the characters the author is writing about, leading me to believe that the author isn't treating that particular universe with respect and therefore isn't really a fan but someone trying to "cash in" on the popularity of a known series. When the characters become so out of character that the only way I know which character is being presented to me is when the author labels them with their name that's bad. On the other hand, there are fan fiction stories where the author inserts themselves or other original characters into the universe and draws the focus away from the canon characters. "Mary Sue" characters kill most stories for me - if you want to do that then create an original universe for your stories instead of fan fiction universes.

In my stories, I try to keep a balance of new content with tie backs to known situations and characters within the original material. I don't want to just rehash what was already done, but I feel it's important to pay homage to the original material. To that end, I try to write stories that new fans or even people who aren't fans can enjoy, yet also delight fans of the series in how their favorite characters are portrayed. I hope you agree that I have done a good job in this respect. If you enjoy a story of mine, I would love to hear back from you. If you have some constructive comments on possible improvements, let me know as well.

My promise to readers:
I always finish my stories; I don't even begin posting until it is done. You never need to worry that I will stop working midway through a story you're reading and enjoying. When you read a story of mine, you are sacrificing your time and concentration which, as an author, I must respect.

Current Story:
Tekken: Fourth Season of Man

Purity reviews
One-shot story: The creation of the first Zerglings. Originally to be the beginning of a story from a Zerg POV, but seemed to stand enough on its own. I wanted to write a full novella for Starcraft but ran out of time. This was probably written in 2004.
