Author has written 8 stories for RWBY, and Pokémon.

An old school gamer from Brooklyn, New York who got addicted to RWBY and decided to write fan fiction of it.

Before focusing on my original works I used to write and read various fan fictions. Most people brush off fan fiction as terrible writing done by overly obsessive nerds. Granted, looking back on the fan fictions I used to write years ago, they were pretty bad. But I think when done right, fan fiction can be used as a stepping stone into being a good writer.

"Those Silver Eyes" is on the TV Tropes RWBY fan fiction recommendations. A big thank you to whoever suggested that story and to those who felt it worthy for it to show up on that page. I feel honored.

Currently working on Pokémon RWBY: Journey Through Vale, a Pokémon!AU of RWBY where Ruby travels the Vale region to become the next Pokémon champion. Along the way she'll meet trainers from all walks of life. Some trainers will be friendly, some trainers will be enemies, and some of them just might be a little out there.

Gold by momoxtoshiro reviews
A cat, a coincidence, and a childhood friendship brought them together. But just because people come together, does not necessarily mean they will stay that way, for people are fickle, fragile, and foolishly selfless in terms of love.
