Author has written 4 stories for Rurouni Kenshin.

I only recently began writing after half a lifetime of reading, and no one could be more surprised by that than me. :)

Please take a look at my favorites for a collection of some of the best authors and canon stories around! If you run across an AU in my favorites list, that's because it is ridiculously amazing, so don't stop, just read. There is only one crossover on my list and just like Jalapeno ice cream, it shouldn't be good but it really, really is; consider reading it. :) Don't forget to review their works, too.

Please consider purchasing the new(ish) Ruro-Ken movies in an effort to support this kick-butt fandom. (available on Amazon)

Fandoms: Primarily Inuyasha and Rurouni Kenshin, with a more mild obsession with a few others.

Pet Peeves:

Anachronism
Intrusive and unnecessary use of foreign language (well done and sensible usage is fine)
Culturally inappropriate behaviors that don't appear to be a deliberate character choice
Mary Sues (seriously, anyone of the age of 14 should know better)
Forcible sex of any kind done badly, which is most of the time.
Bare vs bear: why are so many people walking around nude in fanfic?

My most cherished favorites:

Anything by my favorite authors; seriously these people are walking with giants.

Kenshin

The Rurouni Settles: genre defining post-cannon "slice of life" multichapter fic

Through Long Days of Labor: by Ayezur. I haven't listed anything else by my favorite authors here, but this one deserves special mention. I can't even explain how good it is, if you haven't read it yet, please, go do so.

The Physics of Love: KenKao fluff done so right

Going Gentle: such a sweet end to a life of effort.

An Evil Plan Gone Horribly Wrong: a tiny bit forced with Kaoru's character, but so good with Sano and Kenshin, and just amusing as &%!

Umbrella: a post cannon fic that will make you like Tomoe, her being dead at the time is irrelevant.

Inuyasha

Beso: ...read it...

Divine Intervention: I love Shippou. You will too. :)

If It Passes The Time by CrazyJaney reviews
Drabble center. Chapter Seventy-nine. But he did know that the scene that met his eyes when he opened the door was not the usual sight. She was sitting on the floor with her back pressed against the mattress. In her hand was a cheap bottle of whiskey. It was only three quarters full, meaning that she'd already made a decent dent in it. That was, in itself, unusual. AU. KK. Sort of.
