'Lo, tis' the profile of Black Jester.

I am a writer of mosty Final Fantasy fics, though some Kingdom Hearts and Full Metal Alchemist has crept into my work. I tend to write one-shots, since they're what comes easiest to me, and they tend to be angst with a sidedish of very twisted romance. I don't write fluff-and-sunshine fics, but I don't look down on those who do. I'm also a sporadic updater, since I've got a lot of original projects on the side, and I participate in NaNoWriMo every November, so don't expect much of me then.

I love getting reviews (there are few of us who don't) but I prefer them to be honest. If you think my works sucks, tell me why. If you think it's great, tell me why. If you think it's mediocre, tell me what went wrong so that I can fix it. I believe I've been here long enough to tell the difference between concrit and flames.

The sudden lack of updates/new fics has a twofold reason;

1) I am trying to spend more time on original writing/school work (both of which is needed)

2) I am playing FF7, and I've a hard time tearing myself away from it to even eat; it's consuming quite some time. However, do expect more FF7 fics when I finally get around to updating.
