Age: Old enough to know better. ;)

Location: Sydney, Australia.

Likes: Books (E.A. Poe, H.P Lovecraft,Umberto Eco,John Milton,John Keats,Percy B. Shelley, Kim Wilkins, John Connolly, Carlos Ruiz Zafon.), music (Black metal, doom, classical, operas) , dark/angst, historical, horror movies, anime, video games (DMC series, Soul Calibur, Castlevania, FF-7, LOK series, Resident Evil series, Silent Hill series), lollipops, kittens, yeah, kittens definitely…Oh and mattresses that come with a “Don’t Swallow!” warning….(Gotta love Wil Anderson…He's one adorable, perverted Aussie comedian extraordinaire!)

Writes: Angsty one shots, dark romance, action, tension, etc…Whatever takes my fancy, really. I'm more inclined to writing angsty stuff that somehow turns out to be some strange hybrid of broody whininess and depressive lovelorn characters in need of a cold shower...

Currently reading: Random stuff.

Currently playing: Soul Calibur 3, Silent Hill: The Room ( Yep, I'm behind times. Sue me.)

"Did you send out those invitations...? I told you no more than fifty people! -followed by gunshots- ~Lois Sera "Resident Evil 4"

Phantom Of The Opera Fic(s)

Tenebrion: This is my first ever phan phic on this site, my POTO obsession. E&C of course. Major re-editing and update will follow soon.-hugs Kates, broadwaygal and other readers who supported this fic with their amazing reviews-

Devil May Cry Ficcys

Chaos's Warm Embrace: Okay...This is something I've been wanting to write ever since I've played the DMC and fell in love with the whole game and Vergil. Lady&Vergil= recipe for disaster. -grins- This is the result...Enjoy. Will be updated weekly, please do not hurt me -whimpers-

Bittersweet: Lady&Dante. Currently suspended. -grumbles- I'm not good at this fluff stuff...Update: Might return to finish this sometime soon though. -grins evilly-

A Brother's Promise: Dante's metamorphosis told in a story of morbid/slightly whiney angst, no romance.Discontinued. Not sure I'll update it in the near future.

Don't Cry: Gah! The title says it all, Sparda's lament and anguish, bad attempt at poetry and you get this... gah!

Final Benediction: I was bored one night, and came up with this. Yeah, I know the story of brainwashed Vergil, tortured Dante and penitent Trish is one you've heard countless times before, but this is my version of the events. Nelo Angelo's perverse infatuation with his mother lookalike might come across a little twisted, but it's a one-sided thing to be sure. Don't know if I'll continue it or not at this stage.

Devil's Deception:A Divine Comedy: A Brother's Promise spinoff centered on Dante posing as Vergil, massively altered and presented in AU. Once again, bored. Special thanks to Bustahead for the inspiration for this one.

Beyond Silence: Silent Hill and DMC crossover. Shivers? Maybe. possibly. Dante and Lady seem to think so.

Bogey Nights: Half-Devils can go trick or treating too!

Damned In Blue: Dante's got an unhealthy obsession with Lady and inferiority complex too... Dark, dark stuff that reveals the very demonic side of Dante.

FF VII and Advent Children Stuff

Tremble: A dying Yazoo&Loz, too much rain, too much caffeine, depressive angsty one-shot. Non smut yaoi, but yaoi nonetheless because Yazoo's cuddly too...

Like A Feather: Another Loz/Yazoo vignette that has a slight dose of angst and tragic romance stuff. Shounen-Ai. Can't get enough of this pairing at the moment.

Never A Memory: Surprisingly a Kadaj fic...Hmmm, I wonder why...? Of course, an angsfest with rare moments of drama and romance and Turks!. No yaoi. Sephiroth...of course.

Triple Trouble: Remnants, sushi, Yuffie...fluffiness...Bored as...

Scarlet Requiem: Vincent-centric, angsty reluctant hero stuff, morbidity overload.

Messiah: Kadaj likes to hurt people and break stuff. Nice. Oh along the way he becomes a messiah, dedicated to spreading the dark gospel of "the one and only" One Winged Angel. In short, pure darkness, violence, yaoi&het rape(yes), disturbing imagery and did I mention angst?

A Velvet Nightmare: First Final Fantasy-7 Advent Children fic, Loz centric of course! Loz survives the explosion, returns to avenge his brothers, and yeah he's got the hots for Tifa too.
UPDATE: Velvet Nightmare is back on the site after an extensive reediting, under the new title "Only The Scars". There's a major plot change and more suspense and a surprise villain from the dusty pages of FF-7 history, so be sure to check it out if you're into Loz, or enjoy Loz and Tifa pairings. I shall admit now that this one's not going to be overly romance-centric. Not in the beginning at least. In terms of angst, yes, there will be plenty, but no more blubbering Loz as I'm sick of writing teary-whingey scenes. And yes, I managed to write a non-Yaoi Loz fic at last...

Random

De Mysteriis Dom Angellus &Immortal Legacy &Possession Taken down by the authoress. Rest in pieces mary sue...

Stories To Come: Resident Evil one-shots and also am working on more Vergil based stories. Also more FF VII rants to come. I'm in the grip of a Advent Children+game based one shot-craze at the moment, so stay tuned.

Fave pairings:

POTO: Erik/Christine.

DMC: Any well written Vergil pairings. Vergil&Lady atm. I've got no problem with OC/protagonist pairings, but prefer canon characters. Mary Sue's r us? Yeah, been there done that! -grins- So no dramas there.

Resident Evil 4: Leon and Wesker are allowed to hump anything they like, even mary sues.

Final Fantasy VII/Advent Children: Vincent "Mr.Shmexy Boots" Valentine pairings, Cid&Yuffie, Rufus&Reno. Any Loz pairing is sure to delight me also. Loz&Tifa shipper here, yaoiwise; Loz&Yazoo. Oh and of course, anything goes with Sephiroth...

Hellsing: Alucard&Victoria.

Soul Calibur: Siegfried&Raphael&Amy, any Raphael pairings delightfully melt me. -le dreamy sigh-

By the way, I don't flame as I don't believe in that "constructive criticism" BS. Period.

On an important note; some people overanalyze way too much, and forget to have fun. To those people I have only one thing to say: Take a chill pill and get a life.


Last, but not least...

"I must say, when I came to see you, I had no idea I was going to have to eat your ship as well as hire it. And since you're clearly as mad as a mongoose I'll bid you farewell."

- Edmund, Blackadder


Donnie Darko: How can you do that?

Frank the Giant Bunny: I can do anything I want. And so can you.
