Author has written 23 stories for D N Angel, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X, Harry Potter, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy VII, and Final Fantasy X-2.

The rain descends into an eternity that has no end.

Until the sun comes, and it fades

like a fantasy burned away by the reappearing sun.


I leaned back against the wall and looked up at the sky.

But it feels so corny because all i can see is the ceiling

there are no doors or windows in this room

and i find out too late that i am trapped

and this--my words, my fantasies, are my only escape.


Maybe if you'd just open your eyes you would see too

maybe if you'd just listen you would hear it too

maybe if you would take my hand you would feel it too

maybe if you would dance with me you would love it too

maybe someday you'll dance in the rain with me.


i'm going to keep this feeling alive

no matter what it takes

i'm going to live this life and enjoy it while it lasts

regardless of the stakes

i'm going to bring this dream alive

though it will always and only remain fake.


-i fear that if i run away, i may not be followed.

what could be worse than leaving everything behind?-

Thanks for visiting this page. Which I guess means you're interested in reading something?

Please read my fanfics. Otherwise it wouldn't really make much sense for you to be reading my profile page...

Hehe.

Personal Favorites : "Peace of Mind" Zidane grieves... or rather, doesn't. His friends wish he could simply let go.

"Dancing in the Rain" The green-eyes hero says goodbye to his lovely 'moon-goddess'" (Harry x Luna)

"Wherever You Will Go" The dream will someday fade... The thoughts of a dream that begs to stay. (TidusxYuna)

"Of Moonlight and Shadows" Malfoy ponders his place. Between where his conscience wishes he was and where his choices have led him.

Almost all of them seem to be about saying goodbye. :D Except for Malfoy's Hehe.


i will paint my sorrows on the sky

so they will fly away

i will write my tears down on rippling water

so they will drift and drown away

i will sing of my bitterness to the earth

so they will run away

i will speak of my pain into your deaf ears

so i will never need to hear them again.


Spec. Note:

There is a difference between flaming and constructive criticism... Flaming means bashin the author and pointing out all the grueling bits of the story. Constructive criticism is that(in a hopefully softer way), plus pointing out good points in the story that the author may highlight. Review buttons are there so you can say what you think about the story... but it would be nice if you think about the person's feelings.

One more thing, I just noted when people review they say "this is good", or "this is bad", without telling the author what is actually good/bad. Some do, which is great. It's alright if you prefer not to go to details, but I think it would be awesome and really-really helpful if you point out stuff like that.

Me personally, if you flame me I won't be offended. I don't delete any reviews anyone drops unless they're saying something which is against the rules to say, becausedeleting stuff when peoplehave taken time to comment, isreally rude, (0.o) and it sort of makes me come across as someone who can't accept bad comments... in which case I'll never get any better. :P

Thanks a lot! Sorry for the long note. :)
