Author has written 15 stories for Stargate: Atlantis, Charles Dickens, Abarat series, Yu Yu Hakusho, Sweeney Todd, Underland Chronicles, and Ladyhawke.
Name: Amaruk (that's uh-MAR-ook) Wolfheart
Age: old enough to drive, not old enough to drink (legally within the United States, that is)
Daemon: Seraffis (unsettled)
Alter Ego: Hedge, who lives in my head
Race: human; allied with Wraith
Politcal Stance: I am pro-non-human rights. Prawns are people too and they deserve equality!
Pets: Well, folks, we're down to just the chipmunk, squirrel, and raccoon clans in the backyard. (But someday, I want to have a pet skunk.)
My works as a whole are dedicated to My Girls, Sammy and Jade, the sweetest rats the world has ever seen.
Uh, yeah, hi. Nice to meet you, I'm sure. This be me Page of Randomness! Watch out for any sanity; it tries to invade sometimes. *shudder*
I am primarily a writer of Stargate Atlantis fics (usually oneshots) with a couple of Abarat ideas, but as you can see, I tend to put up oneshots from a sprinkling of other fandoms as they come to me. So take a look. You can never be quite sure what - or who - will pop up next.
Random Personal Note as of March 22, 2011: So, for anyone who has me on alert for CCTA and wants to tear their hair out (or more likely mine) at seeing that I have a random Ladyhawke oneshot instead of Chapter 11, sorry about that. I think this probably the longest I've ever gone between updates (and it's obscene, I admit) but once again I will never abandon CCTA. I'm too fond of it. I'm finally on spring break after the busiest term academically-speaking I've ever had, so I'm working on Ch 11 as I type this. My goal: post by the end of the week. Knowing me, that ain't gonna happen, but I'm going to try. (Also, whenever 11 is posted, I will be switching CCTA to the Abarat category.)
I love... Yu Yu Hakusho (Kurama) & various other animes/mangas, Stargate SG-1 (Daniel), Stargate Atlantis (McKay, Steve, Michael, Todd, the Wraith in general), Space: Above and Beyond (I'll never forgive it for only getting one season - Col. T. C. McQueen for life!), Blake's 7 (Avon FTW! XD), the musical CATS, Edge Chronicles, anything written by Brian Jacques/Tamora Pierce/Garth Nix/Phillip Pullman, Inheritance cycle, C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia (anything and everything but especially the books and the BBC TV movies), Clive Barker's Abarat series (Christopher Carrion), Phantom of the Opera (book, musical, & movie - extra-specially the musical!!), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (older & newer movies, book), Harry Potter (Severus Snape), Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (Sparrow's cool and Barbossa's cooler, but I love Norrington!), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (musical & movie), Labyrinth, Ladyhawke (one of my all-time favorite movies), Repo! The Genetic Opera (Graverobber), the Jurassic Park books by Michael Crichton (Ian Malcolm), Fragment, District 9, Sneakers (Cosmo), the Temeraire books by Naomi Novik, and animals in general. Especially rats. Especially my rats. And we all love J. Go J! WOOHOO!
My OTPs: Daine&Numair (Tamora Pierce's Tortall books), Navarre&Isabeau (Ladyhawke), Danica&Zane (Kiesha'Ra series), Doctor&Rose (Doctor Who), Sabriel&Touchstone (Abhorsen trilogy), V&Evey (V for Vendetta), Sophie&Howl (Howl's Moving Castle), Jareth&Sarah (Labyrinth)

SQUEE!! :D The lovely Red Stockings, author of several Abarat fics herself, has drawn a Carrion and the Cat-inspired picture for me!! I feel so honored. I love it! Everyone should go see it here or by going to her profile and clicking on her homepage, which is a link to her deviantart profile, or by looking at my avatar! XD WOOT!
Stories...In Progress: I'm planning on working on Carrion and the Cat for some time. (Yeah, like fifty years...) It will have 15 chapters when all is said and done, including the prologue and epilogue. Or...maybe...16??
...Pending: Two possible Abarat fics, surprisingly. I'd thought CCTA would be pretty much it! However, nothing's coming up till it's done. A group of oneshots from various fandoms will be written...eventually... Got a SGA oneshot for Gingercake's challenge coming up (when I find my first draft...). Data Seeker has made two SGA requests of me, one Todd & one Ellia, which may take forever because I fail. After the next chapter of CCTA is posted, I'm going to start writing for a SGA multichap collection of pieces for Michael. The theme? All the ways his life could have gone. I'm really excited for it. ^_^ Also a collection of Ladyhawke snippets - my take on different scenes from different POVs, including some that aren't in the movie. And hopefully I'll have a oneshot for Tamora Pierce's Immortals quartet finished and posted soon too.
...Co-written: Daine Weirynsra and I have long been writing partners. I think it's all down now coz everything was started about six years ago and needs serious revamping - or might be scrapped entirely. If anything's ever posted, I'll let you know.
Now I shall torture you with quotes! (demonic cackling)
