Author has written 13 stories for Inuyasha, Yu-Gi-Oh, Sailor Moon, Code Geass, Yu Yu Hakusho, Fairy Tail, Gintama, and Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun/地縛少年花子くん.

Hiya! I know most people don't come to profiles to learn about the author personally, but just in case, have a lil info~!
I am probably older than at least 75% of everyone else on here and I have no idea how that makes me feel!
I have a tendency to like the good girlsxbad bois ;)).
I love cats, coffee, sushi, and my home, the Pacific Northwest.
I play too much WoW for my own good.
I like fluff and smut best (but well-written, of course)~

I am not a multi-chaptered, plot kind of gal. I mean I love reading stories like that, but I've never been able to do it. So expect that all of my chaptered-fics are pretty much abandoned, with perhaps the lone exception of 50 Words which isn't really a chaptered-fic in the sense I mean, anyway (unfortunately I lost the word prompt that I was working off of for it but I can just try to find a new one if HieixBotan inspo hits)!

Oh yeah, I'd kind of appreciate it if you didn't read anything posted before the last decade, lol. The earliest of it is from high school and while I'm proud of the strides I've made, it's still embarrassing...but I just can't bring myself to delete them yet...

Current status:
*Raspberry/Shadow is updated HALLELUJAH! I have a few more ideas waiting in the wings as well (hopefully shorter and/or fluffier pieces oml), but I can't promise that other fandoms won't steal my creativity for a while. That said I would definitely like there to be less time between the next update if I can help it.
*Slow progress on a Levy/Gajeel one-shot about Gajeel sleepwalking
*Even slower progress on a Kagura/Okita one-shot set before Kagura returns near the end of the series
*Jotted down another Kagura/Okita high school AU/3Z idea
*My first BNHA Kacchako one-shot prompt that weirdly came to me in a dream
Root for me~


If anyone has the desire to send me specific prompts or ideas (including smut) for specific ships, I'd be glad to attempt! Getting more involved in the community could be a nice way to increase my motivation. I'll jot down a small list of fandoms below that I'm potentially interested in writing for right now (always subject to change) - I have preferred ships, but open to at least thinking about anything and flexing my imagination. Please don't hesitate to send me a message about this or anything, really~ I'd love to chat and make friends with folks in one of my fav fandoms! (though I've recently discovered how terrible 's messaging system is - I may port some things to A03 eventually, though I'll also continue updating here as it's been my fanfic home for over fifteen years, now...)
