Author has written 13 stories for Secret Saturdays, Sonic the Hedgehog, Doctor Who, and Misc. Tv Shows.

The Sonic fics are also being uploaded over at deviantArt.
I divided up the chapters differently, with the result that the most updated version of those stories should be found at

I have yet to make up my mind whether to migrate my Secret Saturdays fics. If I do, that may mean editing the versions here for chapter length, to match the way the Sonic fics are uploaded.
Not to mention making other edits. I've a few story elements that, shall we say, "sounded like a good idea at the time," but the more I distance myself from the stories, the more I dislike certain parts.
Namely, the orphanage section in Ships (you know which one) and Aeron's related part, and Doyle's behavior during much of Heist. The mentioned section in Ships will be taken out entirely, with the other chapters being modified to account for most of the change; Doyle's behavior in Heist will, hopefully, be less obviously out-of-character, while still fitting the plot I had in mind.
I don't know when I'll get back to these stories, but I do intend to copy them over to deviantArt round about the same time I begin the rewrites.

And finally, I will, eventually, attempt to draw up some of the scenes from any of the series/stories over on deviantArt. But I'm currently interested in what my readers might dream up.
So take a look, and see what strikes your fancy!

Now back to your regularly scheduled rambling.

Introduction to

I technically started on here because I was looking up a fellow classmate.

Then I started work on a Pokemon fic. That went nowhere after two chapters, and I eventually took it down. It still plays in the back of my head now and again. I might give it another go some day, but for now, it's just shoved to the side.

Secret Saturdays

Then I started with the Secret Saturdays. I began with a one-shot, Waking Nightmare, which was only meant to test the waters and introduce one of my conspiracy theories. I'll eventually work it into a later part of one of the longer stories...once those longer stories reach that point.

I originally had about umpteen-trillion things (or so it seems) I wanted to try that were supposed to take place after the show was over. But these stories tended to rely on situations from (at the time) recent episodes. I found myself changing the stories quite frequently to take new episodes into account.
I noticed I had quite a few memories--essentially a collection of flashbacks from a variety of unrelated stories--from Doyle's early years that I wanted to work out, so I finally just wrote them into one story, Ships in the Night. I decided I'd get that worked out of my system before I worked on any others.

Then I started my Master's Degree, and Ships in the Night went on a long hiatus.

I switched to a new story, figuring that Ultimate Heist would be much shorter, and that I could still work on it even during my degree.
But this was not to be.

Sonic the Hedgehog

NaNoWriMo 2010 began, and I switched gears again.

My first Sonic the Hedgehog fiction, Spectres of the Past, played a crucial part in my word count, and will play a role in the finished product--once I edit it for copyright purposes, of course--and other than focusing on classes, I simply haven't dropped that project.
It, too, was initially intended to be a "modern" setting. It, too, contained memories that I wanted to develop, that I finally decided to write into a story all their own.
The history became three stories: Spectres of the Past, Uneasy Alliances, and Endings, New Beginnings.
And a Mature-rated one-shot, Liaison, that one of characters wouldn't let me avoid.

Then I wrote another one shot, Self Reliance, that was only meant as a gag, and that I'd like to draw up as a comic for my deviantArt account.
And this one-shot, alongside the "modern" settings used in my NaNo's first draft, inspired the Alternate Universe that came to be known as Bad Blood.

In May of 2011, I had an odd dream that prompted the story now known as Forgotten War.
I wanted to get the general idea down, so I set Bad Blood aside and started on the "prologue" of this new idea as another Sonic-fic.
NaNoWriMo 2011 rolled around, and I had no idea what I was going to write for my novel. However, I'd determined that Forgotten War, once revised for copyright issues (very little revision, under the circumstances), could make a workable original story. So I cut off the fanfiction at the end of the prologue and began my NaNo at the next chapter.

Then I dropped the fanfiction in favor of my final college courses. I hope to return to these projects soon.

Doctor Who

In 2012, I started work on a set of loosely-connected Doctor Who fics, many of which I focused on when it came time for NaNoWriMo. I'd like to get these legitimately published, though I don't see that happening any time soon--I simply have no idea who to talk to for permission, and have little enough "reputation" as a writer to warrant getting that permission even if I knew who to ask.
So I'm rewriting many of them into "original" fics via the Faction Paradox method.
As such, most won't be appearing on here, but there are a few--some that simply won't be rewritten, such as the Ten/Martha story The Prince and the Doctor, and others that have no connection to that set, such as the crossover Spies of Cybus, or the occasional random shorter ideas, those based on dreams, or those intended only to explore my headcanon--that I will put up.

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic

I'm also toying around with a handful of My Little Pony fics that I simply... haven't gotten around to posting to here. Three short fics can be found on deviantArt, detailing the events that dragged certain characters into the (yet to be written) longer main story.


And unless you're lurking over on deviantArt, you're now caught up with me.
Come 2013, I'd gone back to my original works, and I've been going back and forth in these different storyverses ever since.
