Same username on AO3. The chapters there have illustrations. (Sparkle, sparkle.)
I type some reviews and comments on my phone. Please account for auto-correct and give me the benefit of the doubt!
I write pokemon fanfic with a realist/survivalist take and an emphasis on relationships between humans and nature. My trainers all start traveling at 18--I figure running around the wilderness with magical monsters is at least as dangerous as buying cigarettes or joining the army. For bite-sized bits of that world, check out "Postcards." For a deeper dive, check out "Spring" or "Continental Divides."
When I'm not writing I'm illustrating, teaching art, teaching teens at the library how to play all kinds of board games, and GMing tabletop RPGs. Read: I'm a professional nerd mentor. Talk to me about climate change or your favorite kind of soup.
You can find me on AO3 and Thousand Roads under the same username and on Instagram and Tumblr as wildbootsappeared.
Check those places for art (by me and others) and bonus background information about chapters or to ask me a question.
Blanket thank you to A_Pen, Wolflyn, and the three woopers in a trench coat calling themselves Kintsugi. Without your brainstorming, shop talk, and general support these stories would be very different and not quite as good.
Spring: Paused indefinitely while I work on other projects.
Continental Divides: Paused indefinitely while I work on other projects.
I've also got a writing guide for Pokemon fics, and that's on AO3. It's got both advice and prompts.
