Author has written 7 stories for Samurai Champloo, and Transformers/Beast Wars.

I spend a third of my life without sunshine, in a cubicle, oppressed by 7' ceilings and overwhelmed by wiring harness schematics. And, I consider that a reprieve from housework and parenting. Writing is my sanity's last line of defense.

Nah, I'm just kidding... I'm really a superhero just posing as a numb-to-life CAD jockey. I'm a svelte size 4. I wear a white tube top and my underwear on the outside of ludicrously skinny jeans. I have a Long John Silver's cardboard hat that I spray-painted white and a cape made out of two body pillow cases, taped together with shiny duct tape. I AM IVORY BANGLE!!

I write fan fiction to get better at writing so I can hopefully work on my own book. If you really do enjoy my writing, please let me know what I'm doing right. If there's something I can improve on, I want to know that too.

UPDATE 26DEC14: I'm afraid my 5 month hiatus is turning into a semi-permanent retirement from Transformers. At the risk of sounding conceited, I felt like I put a lot of heart into the work I've done, and there just isn't enough of a 'market' in this fandom for the particular flavor of story I feel comfortable writing. And, not many stories from other writers with the same tastes to draw inspiration from for that matter. Nothing against those with different tastes, of course. Write what you're passionate about. That's what we're here for.

A contributing factor (and probably the last straw for me) was finding generous sections of some of my Arcee/Wheeljack stuff very thinly 'paraphrased' on another site. It's made me hesitant to publish new material. I won't point fingers. After all, we're all here because we loved someone else's work so much we had to make it our own. And besides, no one's a 'good' writer until they're written something worth plagiarizing. So, I guess ... thanks?

Tricks and Tips reviews
In the early days of the War, Arcee meets two femmes at a gentlemech's club who, together with their own respective mechs, try to help her overcome her troubled past and maybe find a mech of her own to be happy with . Kind of Alternate Universe. Rating may change.

Scraps of Blue reviews
Parts of stories revolving around Arcee in various pairings that have been gathering dust in notebooks and on hard drives. The highest rated one is M, but a couple of them will only fall into the K-plus range. Will update as I get them transferred from paper.

Preening and Practice reviews
Being preened over by a femme was a luxury a lot of mechs had been willing to pay good credits for on Cybertron – and not just because they could get grit out of all the tight places.

Old Acquaintances reviews
Ten years have changed Jack, Miko, and Raf. Do they still have what it takes to beat an old enemy? *This will be a sequel to my other fic, "What Little Femmes are Made Of." I intend to get back to the whole Wheeljack and Arcee thing, if you can hang in there.* T for language, for now.
