Author has written 4 stories for Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X, and Lord of the Rings.

Hey - Emeraldstargazer here.

Twenty-something private sector drone by day; avid fanfic reader and author by night. Proud owner of long-suffering husband, a muse most fond of coming up with ideas at 11pm and a horde of rabbid plot bunnies sent to torment my every waking moment.

About Me

I'm into computer games, horse riding, cooking, swimming and having a nice cup of tea and a sit down. I also love to read - contemporary and classic stuff - and my favourite book is 'The Lord of the Rings'.

Writing wise, it tends to be computer games based although I've also done a Lord of the Rings based fic. I'm really into RPGs - especially Final Fantasy 7, 8 and 10 and am currently obsessed with all things 'Dragon Age: Origins' and 'Dragon Age II' as well.

My Fanfictions

I finally got around to doing some spring cleaning on FF.net and now some of my old stories have been deleted. Apologies if anybody enjoyed them but I finally realised that I just wasn't ever going to be able to finish them - I've changed too much since I started them to make a decent job of it and I couldn't stand putting out mediocre work just for the sake of finishing the fics.

Which brings me to where I am now. With the skeletons booted out of the closet (metaphorically, of course) I can finally concentrate on some new ideas. I'm more of a reader than a writer these days - owing to work and general life commitments more than anything else - however recently the plot bunnies have been nibbling again so, we'll see how that goes..!

Finished Fic - 'The Gift of a Gentle Heart': my own personal take on the 'Houses of Healing' incident in Lord of the Rings as it was always one of my favourite bits of the book and I would have liked to see more depth in the build up of Faramir and Eowyn's relationship. As it was, she always seemed to me to have a very quick change of heart from Aragorn to Faramir so I'm trying to explore what lay behind that change.

Finished One-Shots - 3 one-shots that make up my 'Shots in the Dark' collection - they focus upon particular moments in time - one's FF8, the other two are FF10 and are called 'Stay Tonight' , 'All of Me' and 'Thunder and Lightning'

If anyone ever has any questions about my fics or wants any help with their own, I'm always happy to help so just e-mail me. I'll always try to make my reply informative and constructive.

Give me but one firm spot on which to stand and I shall move the earth - (Archimedes)

The grass is greener on the other side but you may have to share it with 3 billy goats and a troll - (Anon)

Curiosity killed the cat. In the library with the revolver - (Anon)

Coming to Terms by xenzen reviews
Post KoTOR, Ch. 68: Dustil tried to decipher the telemetry in the projector, but all it showed was a chaotic jumble of red enemy icons and green friendly ones, all moving too quickly for him to grasp the new situation. Then he saw the new swirl of amber icons that had just blinked into existence. There were many of them.

Heart of the Guardian by thewandcrafter reviews
