Author has written 13 stories for Harry Potter, Animorphs, Naruto, RWBY, Kingdom Hearts, Soul Eater, and X-Men.

Notice June 2017: Still not dead. Getting back into practice at writing. Looking for a job that actually pays money instead of peanuts.
Please be patient. Updates are coming.


"It's easy, after all, not to be a writer. Most people aren't writers, and very little harm comes to them."


I am Kyle, alias \Echo (pronounced "BackslashEcho").

I am a writer of stories. I don't know whether I'm very good at it, yet, but everything good begins somewhere, and I can say for a fact that I've improved since I started writing here.


I have set up a P a t r e o n account for donations. (FFN is still stripping out external links, so look for {that website} dot com stroke BackslashEcho)
Note that I am not holding updates hostage for donations—regardless of any donations at all, I am planning to add new chapters more frequently, and all chapters will be available to everyone, donor or not. If you would like to show your appreciation, however, the option is open, and you would have my sincerest gratitude.

Currently actively updating:

  • Unto The Breach (Naruto)
  • Going Down Swinging (RWBY)
  • Peroxide (Bleach) [New!]
  • No Two Snowflakes (RWBY)
  • Note that my most popular story will be updated more frequently than the others -- every other paid update will go to the most popular, and presently that is Unto The Breach by a landslide.


    If I've used an image of yours as a Story Cover, I'm afraid I have no record of any of my sources. Let me know if/how you'd like to be credited, or if I should remove the picture.


    "I hope you find some stories here that you will enjoy, or wonder about, or that linger uncomfortably in the mind when you wish they didn't."

    The Games We Play by rgm0005 reviews
    It began after I got rejected by Signal again, though at the time I had no idea what was happening. Titles and levels suddenly appeared above people's heads and then weird things began to happen, as if I was in a game. And then, I realize I was in a game. But...if my life is a game, I'm going to win it. My name's Jaune Arc and I'm the Gamer. RWBY/The Gamer.

    Space Opera by Mari and Su reviews
    Mari and Su go to space. They meet some people you may know along the way... A classy melange of Firefly, Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star, with some other spices for flavor. Episodic to start, with arcs and a continuous narrative picking up in the later chapters.
