Author has written 7 stories for Danny Phantom, Dragon Age, Pokémon, Avatar: Last Airbender, and Blue Dragon.

Due to events in the physical world I doubt I will be writing anything new or updating for a while.

All Characters and Settings and other recognizable things in my stories belong to whoever owns them and that person or company is not me. I don’t own them and I don’t make profit of them, I’m just playing with other people’s stuff.

I won't delete a story once I have posted it. I also have an account on Archive of our Own under the name Briar_Ruler and a Tumblr under the name briarruler.

List of stories

Avatar the Last Airbender

Heir of Roku is an Avatar the Last Airbender story that I plan for to be canon divergent, somewhat alternative universe with a fair amount of world building.

Spirit Bound is an Avatar the Last Airbender Alternative Universe-Canon Divergence story I am considering writing. During the Summer Solstice following his Banishment a young prince saves and befriends a Dragon-Bird Spirit. Two and a bit years later the ripples of change from this action strike a destiny that was-to-be. The Avatar has awoken and a once hopeless quest is hopeless no more but should Zuko walk the path that the world expects of him or the one he has tentatively been laying?

the Sun Illuminates the Moon is an Avatar the Last Airbender story that I have posted the prologue of.

Zuko of the Pokémon Verse

Zuko of the Pokémon is the main story of my Pokémon Avatar the Last Airbender Crossover. On Pause, Pending rewrite. Decided to include Gen8 Pokemon and have also figured out more of my plot line but I need to do some heavy edits to my current chapters and so, unlikely to be updated anytime this year.

Zuko of the Pokémon-Background Information currently just has information on character's Pokémon teams but will hopefully expand to include world building related info and maybe some back stories for members of Zuko's crew.

Danny Phantom

Three for the Portal Verse

Three for the Portal is the main story and is kind of paused. I hope I will continue it one day but don't hold your breath. It also does a time jump between chapter 3 and chapter 4 has I haven't written out what happens in that time frame yet.

Other Stories

Mages of Pern has not been posted but is a crossover between Dragon Age and Dragonriders of Pern with Anders as the main character after he accidentally discovers Pern and bonds with a group of fused firelizards/Fade Wisps at a very young age which allows him to travel Between Pern and Thedos.

Rekindling Relations by VJ Riddle reviews
Kir's family hadn't seen him in years, assuming him dead had been easier for everyone. Kir himself hadn't seen his family in decades, and had consciously avoided thinking about them for almost as long - assuming them lost to him forever had been safer. But a letter arrived, another was sent and they couldn't avoid breaking those illusions any longer. Friends Across Borders - Pt. 10

Redefining a Firestarter by VJ Riddle reviews
Solaris, True Born Son of Sun, has Ascended. The work has just begun. Time to rediscover Old Ways, craft new ones and see if an old but new Firestarting Order will emerge from the ashes. Thankfully, Ancar has offered plenty of fuel for rebuilding their reputation as protectors of the innocent, rather than burners of children. Let us set them on fire! Friends Across Borders - Pt. 9

Son Rising by VJ Riddle reviews
The wheels of revolution turn slowly, and occasionally need obstacles burned to ash. Just as well Solaris had a Firestarter on call, burning things to ash was what he did. With a Witch-Enforcer at his back, His Holiness Firestarter Dinesh was looking to expand his job description. The term 'troubleshooter' comes to mind. Part 8 in Friends Across Borders series.

Igniting a Storm by VJ Riddle reviews
When armies march, masks burn. The 62nd is reminded of just what their priest can do, Herald Griffon accidentally initiates a firestorm he can't control and Herald Anur might have alienated another Heraldic sibling. But the Rethwallen army made it to Valdemar without getting eaten by Furies, so that's something. Part 7 in Friends Across Borders series.

Season of Rest by VJ Riddle reviews
Anur's family hadn't seen him in years. When they got word he was dragging a friend 'not a Herald' home with him, they were surprised, then delighted. When Kir accepted his Herald's invitation, he had only been hoping to be distracted from the death shadowing him at the 62nd. Both agreed Anur should have given more information than 'not a Herald'. Friends Across Borders, Part 6.

Building the Bones by VJ Riddle reviews
What they had hoped was a one-time solution to a short-term problem wasn't enough. The authorities of the 62nd Cavalry may have been helpless against the whims of Sunhame, but they'd tasted hope in these past days. And desperate men with a taste of hope could do some pretty crazy things. Part 5 of Friends Across Borders. Explicit murder, hence rating.

May you live in interesting times by VJ Riddle reviews
Despite an official declaration of war from Sunhame, the 62nd Cavalry finds themselves running short of everything but enemies. With six weeks until the next supply train, their Sunpriest finds himself considering some truly wild options. As Kir should have expected, crossing the border and finding his Herald was the easy part. Part 4 in Friends Across Borders.

Acts of Heresy: A Story in Six Parts by VJ Riddle reviews
A Herald and a Sunpriest walked into a stable, and emerged unscathed, ten months ago. Firestarter Kir Dinesh receives a letter, asking him a deceptively simple question. How does he feel about a spot of treasonous heresy? He tells himself he's just going to see what's going on, but the moment he didn't burn the letter to ash the question was answered. 3rd in Friends Across Borders.

On Firestarters by VJ Riddle reviews
Herald Anur wanted to find out just what his one-night friend meant by claiming the title Firestarter, so he went to the local expert for some answers. Sunpriest Dinesh had more to worry about than contemplating the one-night meeting with a Herald, what with Ancar's raids, losing his unit's trust, and all the blasted screaming. Second in Friends Across Borders series.

Enemy, It's Cold Outside by VJ Riddle reviews
Inns in Hardorn border towns are neutral grounds, so long as the Sunsguard don't see the Herald and the Valdemarans don't see the priests. Usually this works fine, but one winter evening found Valdemarans with a Herald and Sunsguard with a priest at the same inn. Turns out, it's too cold to kill ancient enemies. First in 'Friends Across Borders' series.
