Author has written 20 stories for Marvel, X-Men, Professional, and Smallville.

Hello. :) Thanks for checking out my fanfics. I used to write under the pen name "kabanas". I'm a 20-year-old writer who has a vast love for Michael Ondaatje, romantic adventures, characters that tend to wax poetical, strong female characters, and desert sceneries, amongst other things. Many of my stories are based off of comic books. They range from the long and verbose to my asinine and embarrassing older work. I've kept the latter up purely for my own amusement. :)

When it comes to my favorite comic-book pairings, I'm something of a purist. I believe certain characters were meant to be together and that it's blasphemous to kismet to break them up. (Or pair them with other, far less deserving characters. ;) There are plenty of slash and mismatched pairings out there if you're into that kind of thing.

I post infrequently, and more so out of boredom than any other reason. I'm also human and love to receive reviews just like the next girl. Some of my favorite characters at the moment are:

Elektra: Assassin
* Monet St. Croix
* X2's Rogue and Iceman
* Jesse Custer and Tulip O'Hare
* Cyclops and Phoenix
* Daredevil

My favorite comics of all time are:

Everything pertaining to Elektra
* Preacher
* New X-Men
* Hellblazer
* Y The Last Man
* Fables
* Transmetropolitan
* The Invisibles
* Kabuki

I've listed my friends under my Favorite Authors page, so have a look at their stuff. (I've written many of my fics with my partner-in-crime, La Fata Morgana.) You can also find my poetry and original stories at fictionpress.com under the ID "Saffron Dreams" (fictionpress.com/saffrondreams). I like to think of those as my serious body of work.

Thanks to everyone for their kind words. :)
