Author has written 26 stories for Fatal Frame, Grudge, and Kuon.

Profiles always, always sound stupid within a month of writing. I'll keep it simple.

I like books, writing, music, languages, progressive politics and having something to obsess over. Current fandoms are Homestuck and Fatal Frame; interests also include Gankutsuou, Hell Girl, Kuon, Kino's Journey and Avatar: The Last Airbender. High ratings are usually for violence and disturbing themes rather than smut. I like villains, darkfic, angst and fluff, and I also post at Archive Of Our Own. I've written a lot more fics than you see here, and you can find them at my Dreamwidth journal (secretstaircase.dreamwidth.org), if you want.
