Author has written 1 story for Final Fantasy VIII.

Ok, so I think it's time I make this profile more...profiley.

I'm a session musician who has also been an avid video game player since I was a kid. Coincidentally, I realized I loved both at around the same time (thank you FFVI.) I write, record, and play my own music, and do VGM covers as well :)

I dived into FFVIII fanfics headfirst around the turn of 2015 after several back-to-back completionist playthroughs. I found myself constantly starting over and exploring every nook and cranny I could find in the game, and then realized that what I really wanted was more story. I googled "FFVIII Fanfiction," and presto, this page has been bookmarked ever since lol.

I hope to write fics for some other FF fandoms (VI and VII, to be exact) but, after reading so many great VIII fics, I decided I not only wanted to interact with the fandom, but contribute. "On The Tides Of Fate..." is my first stab at writing fics, and I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I did(and will continue to) writing it lol.

In regards to other websites of mine; most of it relates to music, but I've recently started doing rock/metal covers of video game songs, the most recent of which is from FFVIII (surprise, I know lol.)

So, here are the links to all of the other stuff I do. I use my real name on these pages, and mainly post about my musical endeavors on them, but you'll be sure to see Final Fantasy/general Video Game content on there, too :D

That's all for now, drop a review if you like my fics or a message if you decide to check out the music :D
