Author has written 12 stories for Voltron, Gundam Wing/AC, and Dragon Ball Z.
Hey there, Everyone! What to say about myself? Well, let's start off by saying I'm a writer that enjoys watching anime (just about all kinds) and I- obviously- read fanfiction.
I read just about anything I can get my hands on, and am currently on novel number two of my own series and, for the moment at least, it's going well. My muse has recently returned from vacation, and is making up her time at all hours of the day. Gets annoying to say the least. I'm working, reading something or trying to sleep and ideas pop into my head and have to be written down before they're lost to the void forever. I now carry at least a piece of paper and a pen wherever I go, just in case.
Ok, folks, I'm really sorry, but I seem to have hit a creative wall. Nothing is going anywhere, and no new ideas are coming to me. Aside from "Heero Gets A Friend", nothing new has been posted in almost five years. If anyone has ANY ideas that could help me get passed this, I'd REALLY appreciate it. My muse, the witch, has deserted me in my time of need. I don't want to give up on these stories, but I just can't seem to get them moving again. Could really use some help.
Voltron, Rurouni Kenshin, Gundam Wing, G Gundam, Inuyasha, Full Metal Alchemist, Full Metal Panic, Full Metal Panic Fumoffu, Outlaw Star, Dot Hack Sign, Ghost in the Shell (movies and series), Pretear, Robotech (been a while, though), Dragonball Z, Escaflowne (just recently), and just a few too many others to list here without boring the brains out of you.
My first three stories weren't actually chapter stories until I put them up here. For those that read and reviewed my absolutely horrid attempts at breaking them up, you have my deepest and most sincere thanks. I will be editing them in the near future so they'll not only look better, they'll be easier to understand, more descriptive and easier to follow. Wish me luck!
That's it for now. When I think of some more, I'll edit this and try to keep it as up to date as possible. For everyone who has read my stuff, I apologize for any long amounts of time between updates. My writing has gotten rather fickle these days, and while I try to keep up with it, sometimes there's just too much other stuff to do first, and by the time I get to it, I'm worn out and collapse in bed without writing a word. It's starting to drive me crazy-to say the least-and I'll try to do better in the future.
I have signed up as a beta reader, so if anyone needs one, just let me know. Since my writing seems to have stalled- again- I could use something to help get the juices flowing again. I've read EVERY book in the house and most of the ones in every library I can get to, and I'm going crazy. I need some new material to read. Any and all help with current stories is GREATLY appreciated.
Anyhoo, stay frosty, all.
Full Stories: suggested reading order

Goku Battles His Dark Side is a stand-alone story that a friend came up with. The idea is his, I'm just writing it out for him. While I do get some creative leeway, most of the story is his, as well as new characters. Wish us luck and remember to review because we decided to leave the end up to the readers. This is still ongoing, and I wish I could update. I seem to have hit a block. To anyone who's read this, or even just peeked at it, ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!! And remember to vote for what you want to see happen. The end (hopefully) is coming soon, and every vote counts!
Oneshots and/or Songfics:So far, all of them are Gundam Wing AC fics, so here we go!
1) Hanging By A Moment
2) I Do Cherish You
3) It's Raining Men
4) I Swear
5) Heero Gets A Friend (oneshot)
6) Shippo's Mom (Coming soon . . . I hope!) - It a Mother's Day one-shot. Shippo, hearing Kagome's going home to visit her mom for Mother's Day, starts thinking about his own mom, and then how much Kagome has come to mean to him. My own take on how Shippo starts calling Kagome "Mom".
I have a little rant to get off my chest, people, and I'm pretty sure that if I posted it as a story, it would get deleted, so I'm posting it here.
Ok, folks. I've got some issues I'd like to air. First of all, PLEASE use proper grammar, spelling and punctuation. It can't be that hard to use the spell check on your computer. The difference between “their”, “they're” and “there” (I'll put examples of common mistakes at the end to make this clear to those of you who don't know or care) is rather marked, and if you can't figure it out, LEARN HOW! Do you have any idea how irritating it is to try and figure out what you typed?
Which brings me to another point, actually. For the love of all things holy, when a new person starts talking, you NEED to start a NEW paragraph. Here's an example, all right?
“Sango, use the Hirakotsu!”
“Get down, Inuyasha!” Sango shouted, drawing back her arm to throw the massive bone boomerang strapped to her back.
Got it, now? Because if you don't, check the example again.
Next point, the next person who has Kagome running anywhere, except the well, when she sees Kikyo and Inuyasha together, is going to get my size ten shoe shoved in a very uncomfortable place. If you read the damn manga or watched the anime, unless she could go home, she just didn't talk to him or sulked for a while. GOT IT?! Sesshomaru isn't Kagome's biggest fan, and he'd only save her if he saw something in it for him, and not just as a chance for love.
Vampires, witches and full demon Kagome? Nope. Not reading it and I won't review . . . ever. I also refuse to read anything that looks like it took ten minutes to type, less time to edit, and is flooded with reviews all saying how “grt” it is, and how “i cnt wate to c mor!” If the people who read it can't spell in a review (because I check those first!), then I'm not going to read your lousy attempt at a story, got it?
I put a lot of time and effort, not to mention RESEARCH into my stories, and I get maybe one review per chapter, if that. Why is it that some truly great writers get nothing while the people who can't type or use simple grammar and spelling get 200 or more reviews for something that's not worth the time it takes to read?
Is it so hard to use some common sense when posting a story? Has fanfiction gone down the drain? Can it be saved?
OF COURSE IT CAN!
We CAN save fanfiction from total obliteration by using some simple rules.
Simple, easy to follow. Can't be hard, right? I certainly hope so, because I can't make it any more simple than that.
I know a LOT of people might have an issue with this, but I can't say that I care. The quality of writing on this site has gone downhill in a damn hurry, and it's all because people who can't type or using plots that aren't even CLOSE to original flood the site and drive the folks who look for well written stories elsewhere. Screaming fan girls/guys have added to this latest trend, and I'm tired of it. Beyond tired, in point of fact, but pointing it out just gets you yelled at through a pm or in the author's note.
Well, the ranting is officially over, and I'll move on to examples now. Everyone with me so far? I hope so.
“You're going to have to move, Kagome.”
“Your mother's in the hospital.”
“Since you're headed that way anyway, why not pick me up?”
“I don't sense a jewel shard nearby, Inuyasha.”
“You two are going to the hot springs, right?”
“I'm coming, too!”
“What are you referring to, Kagome?”
“There's a jewel shard nearby!”
“They're not going to make it!”
“It's their dog, isn't it?” (Usually means a group of people you don't know, or would take too long to write everyone's name)
“Take a long walk off a short pier!”
“Peer pressure is bad.” (If you don't know it by now, you never will!)
“Pare this apple for me, would you?”
“We make a great pair!”
“I'm here, guys!”
“Did you hear that suspicious thud?”
Any further questions, please, feel free to shoot me a message. I'm MORE than happy to answer them. Beware, though: I'm through being nice because it's gotten me nowhere on this site, except insulted and/or ignored. I've moved on to being brutally honest.
