Author has written 14 stories for Final Fantasy VIII, Mai HiME, and GrimGrimoire.

Right, it's been a hell of a while since I was here...

I experience a moment of perfect bafflement every time I upload a new story and have to decide on a rating and a genre. The rating is bad enough. Figuring out what kind of story I've written? I have to guess every time...

For those coming to see my new stories: I hope you enjoy!

Then there are my old stories...
I'd like to apologize to anyone who once read Chasing Perfection. I know it seemed like I got one bit of criticism and then ran away. The fact is that I was thrilled to get constructive criticism- right up until I realized just how much was wrong with the story. When I found problems with my plans for future chapters... well, I lost steam, and then interest but I really meant to go back and finish one day. I have realized that I'm not going back to it. Even though I still love the story and characters of FFVIII and I have immense fondness and respect for many of the writers that added to that community, it's just not my passion anymore and I don't really foresee that changing.

I'd say something interesting about myself but I can only think of things that fall into two categories: Things you don't want to know about me, and things I don't want you to know about me.

Happy reading...

Back to Back by EvanescentAmethyst reviews

A Yuri romance drama, focusing on Quistis and Fujin, with the other major characters getting full time also. Along with the stated content, the story also contains a mix of horror, action and humor. With moderate language and mature situations.

Infiltrating the Nohl reviews
Very much AU and fairly silly. Lt. Kuga's service in the Aran Desert Corps had more to do with her taste for adventuring than either great patriotism or hatred of opposing nations. Of course, with this mission, she may have gotten in over her head.

Not Just the Fairytale reviews
Revised and expanded. The survivors of the Obsidian Lord's Festival are the stuff of legends. They are a fantastical collection of stories, but they are also something more: They are real.
