Author has written 31 stories for Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, and Moana.

Hi! I'm Cindy, and this is my backup account for most of my stories. I write mainly for Moana now, but if you dig back through my older stuff you'd be able to see that I used to write for Gravity Falls and Steven Universe as well.

Moana and Maui are my dear sweet precious children, and since I have a weakness for the found family trope, a good number of my stories will revolve around these two finding family in another. I'm mostly into writing fluff, but I've also got a soft spot for hurt/comfort stories, so be on the lookout for some of those as well. Everything I write regarding Moana and Maui will remain strictly platonic and familal. I do love writing them being affectionate, but please be aware that shipping them makes me feel uncomfortable for personal reasons and you're probably never going to get any romantic stories out of me for them.

Other accounts I post my stories to are my Tumblr and my AO3, which both have a much higher priority over this website when it comes to posting. If you look through my AO3 profile, you'll see a number of stories I forgot or chose not to post here, and if you look through my Tumblr you'll see I have more stories up than my account and my AO3 profile combined.

Come over to my other profiles and say hi! I'm always up for chatting :)

Kama'aina – Child of the Land by Child of Mars reviews
Maui's fists clenched. "Why…" the word hurt. It was thick, guttural. He felt as if his heart was bleeding. If he stopped now, he might cry in front of this old dead lady. He choked and tried again. "Why did they… forget me?" (Rated T for brief, non-graphic description of attempted murder of baby Maui.)

Somebody Worthy of Being Saved reviews
Tala's only ever thought of Maui as a selfish trickster. She grew up her entire life believing he didn't care for anyone but himself, and as the woman who watched him abandon Moana to the sea, Tala was convinced Maui was unable to change. But what she doesn't know is that Maui has a soft side, and that he truly cares for Moana, and she's shocked to see this with her own two eyes.

It Could've Been Great reviews
It's no secret that Maui's fascinated by humanity. He's always been. But it's not until after he meets Moana that he realizes his fascination is far more complicated than he could ever imagine. It lies not only in how they live, how they're constantly growing and changing, but it also lies in who they grow up with. Who helps shape them to be the person they are. It lies in family.

Prolonged Silences reviews
Going a thousand years without any form of physical affection can really tend to leave a person craving it. Moana gets that. But what she doesn't know, what she isn't aware of, is that just two years out of her best friend's company is apparently long enough to leave her craving it, too.

I just adore you reviews
Heavily inspired by Love Like You by Rebecca Sugar. How do you express to someone how much you love them? When you're not the best at handling your emotions, how do you express yourself to someone you love at all? When do you express this kind of emotion to someone? Apparently, when they're asleep. Unaware of and unable to hear anything you're saying.

Thanks for the Memories reviews
Sharing memories is said to be something only the most closely bonded and the most legendary of duos are able to accomplish.

Always reviews
When they fell asleep side by side, Moana and Maui discovered they're able to share dreams. Dreams they experience at the same time together. And when you've got the ability to do this with your best friend, whom almost all the time you've spent with has been positive, nothing can ever go wrong, right? ...Right?

It Breaks For You reviews
When Maui's warrior face breaks, it is only Moana who can see right through its cracks. It is only Moana who can see right through his act, right into the core of his being. To who he truly is. It is only her that can tell when he is upset, and it is only her who is able to comfort him.

A Hero A Legend A True Best Friend reviews
an AU-setting where Maui's haka for Moana to keep Te Ka away from her worked, just as it did in the movie, but it works too well. Maui perishes at the hands of Te Ka, and poor unfortunate Moana fails to notice the spiral in her chest until it is too late.

I Love You reviews
When you've gone over a thousand years without hearing it, it can be pretty overwhelming the first time you hear it being directed at yourself. Even if it's said in a reallycasual setting, and even if you're repeatedly getting punched in the arm by the person who's saying it. After returning home from a voyage, Moana can't find Pua anywhere.

She Cares For You reviews
In the novelization of the movie, Maui describes a conversation he has with Mini Maui after he leaves Moana's boat after his fish hook is cracked. Here's my interpretation of a closer look at this conversation. The sentences in italcs that act as their own paragraphs indicate Mini Maui is speaking. Moana is mentioned a lot, but she never has any speaking lines.
