Author has written 43 stories for Saiyuki, Wild Adapter/Executive Committee, Saikano, Yami no Matsuei, Kizuna, and Fullmetal Alchemist.

I'm (as you've probably guessed) a big Kazuya Minekura fan, with Wild Adapter, Saiyuki, and Stigma being some of my favorites of her work.

And ff.net keeps changing what formatting they allow. I'm just realizing that stories that uploaded years ago now have issues, especially during scene changes. (Basically, what signaled a scene or perspective change have been removed and now everything goes together in one confusing block.) It will take some time to check each story, and try to edit it to make sense again, so I apologize for any confusion.
