Author has written 7 stories for Sherlock Holmes, Howl's Moving Castle, and Final Fantasy XV.

Does anyone actually read these things?

Welp. On the off chance that anyone does: I'm Leek; I'm a 26 year old fem from California (the land of terrible, terrible sunshine), and I'm a physicist. And a hobby-writer, as you probably gathered. I really have no idea when I started because it seems like as far back as I could form words I was writing atrocious stories with them. I do like to think I've improved since the phase of adding myself and associated friends into Harry Potter with differing names and calling it a story, but that's not saying much.

Anyway, I don't usually write all that much fanfiction; it shows up in phases when I fall into the inevitable pit of obsession upon encountering a new book/game/...actually mostly just books and games.

I beta and I like betas (so... if you want to beta a story...). Hit me up if you need a reader.

I take no responsibility for my really old fics. I have only kept the better ones up, but they're still old writing. Newer stuff is always going to be better.

Stories: Past, Present, and Future:


When Master Meets his Match:
(Sherlock Holmes, book-based)
Oneshot: about what would happen if someone handed Sherlock Holmes an infant. With Holmes, Lestrade, Watson, of course, and made up characters of insignificance.

Which is Full of Saucepans:
(Howl's Moving Castle, book-based)
Oneshot: I accidentally stumbled upon Calcifer's "silly little saucepan song," and was compelled to write this fic. It includes a link to the song, and a translation from Welsh to english. Just a little fluffy oneshot about silly songs and weedkiller. Includes Howl, Sophie, Calcifer, Michael, Martha and... I guess Lettie and probably Fanny. But they're only implied.

(Final Fantasy XV)
[Cover art commissioned from gabriele-b on deviantart]
Part 1 in Shattered Dreams series.
This is a story about Regis and his children (contains an OC addition: Noctis' twin sister), about how they cope with the loss of their father and about the too-brief time they had with him. It's written partially along the game's timeline and partially in flashbacks. I try to explore Noctis' in-game motivations a bit, since we see very little explanation for some of the things he does, but mostly I focus on the king: who he was as a person and what he meant to his children, especially his daughter.

Of Endurance:
(Final Fantasy XV)
[Cover art courtesy of hisapyon. tumblr .com ]
Part 1 in Onus series.
Following the death of his wife and queen, Regis is left to face the pressures of ruling a kingdom while raising twins on his own. This story covers the first year following Aulea's death, in which King Regis struggles to come to terms with his grief and find a new balance for his life in her absence. It features Clarus, Cor, and Weskham, a couple (side) OCs, and a great deal of bromance between Regis and his bros. Also a lot of cute dad!Regis learning how to dad.

*Note: All my current FFXV fics fit in the same AU. The main descriptor of the AU is that Noctis has a twin sister.


(Final Fantasy XV)
[Cover art commissioned from gabriele-b on deviantart]
Part 2 in Shattered Dreams series.
This story picks up where Fractured leaves off (chronologically: right after Noctis gets eaten by the crystal). It will cover, more or less, the ten years between then and the end of the game, because there are some giant holes and Comrades did a bad job of filling them. So this is the holes: filled. I'd like to note that, while Fractured was very bittersweet and had a lot of fluff that was tinged with sadness, this fic is really just... dark. Mostly just dark. There's no fluff; there's no cute. It really follows the mood set by the end of the game and then pushes it a little farther.

Planned Works:

Of Succession:
(Final Fantasy XV)
Part 2 in Onus series.

Nebulous Ideas:

Final Fantasy XV:

  • Had a vague idea to write a story centered on a young Prince Regis and his chocobros. Onus has me wanting to write Regis and Aulea, so she may feature as well.
  • Also thinking about writing more Iris. I like Iris.
  • Something involving Cid, Cindy, and a new OC. I need more Cid in my life and this idea really caught me. Has potential for forming a whole separate AU.
  • Protector of the Small / Tortall Universe (Tamora Pierce):

    I'm mostly writing this down so that I don't forget that I had an idea for a post-Lady Knight story in which Raoul takes up another (female) squire, at Kel's request, and accidentally ends up with a host of unexpected problems.

    49 Hours by ScribeOfRhapsody reviews
    Kidnapping wasn't what Aranea signed up for, but now she doesn't have a choice if she wants to keep herself and her men alive. Being kidnapped wasn't what Ignis signed up for, but he doesn't have a choice at all. (Pre-fall. Set in Insomnia. Chocobros all have key roles. Regis and his chocobros too, plus the Glaives.)

    Of Endurance reviews
    The weight of the crown on his brow and the Ring of the Lucii on his hand would have been enough without the death of his beloved queen preying on his mind and two infants to raise on his own. The story of King Regis Lucis Caelum: his life, his burden, and his family. Featuring dad!Regis, a twin sister for Noct, and bromance. [Rated M for dark themes] [Part 1 in Onus series]

    Too Much reviews
    In which Luna is pregnant, Ignis has done some reading (too much?), and Noct is hanging on his every word. Oneshot. Rated for... awkward conversation topics.

    When Master Meets his Match reviews
    Oneshot. Holmes and Watson are summoned onto the scene of the newest case by Lestrade. Holmes, in all his brilliance, has no problem solving the case, but meets his match when a child is thrust upon him. Watson and Lestrade both have trouble containing their mirth

    Which is Full of Saucepans reviews
    Oneshot. Fluff. Book-based post book . Saucepan song inspired. Sophie is irate at Howl for coming and going without taking any notice of her, and that silly little saucepan song is really getting on her nerves.
