Author has written 43 stories for Get Backers, and Final Fantasy XII.

Anything published before 2016, read at your own risk. Yikes @ my teenage writing.

Currently I am on the hunt for beta-readers, co-authors or Balthier/Vaan RP partners. I am comfortable playing either character.

Even if you aren't interested in being a beta-reader or co-author, I'd like to get to know you! Connect with me on tumblr under sky-paper.
