Author has written 1 story for Final Fantasy VII, and Yu-Gi-Oh.

I can also be found on AO3, MediaMiner, and Wattpad under the same name.

I would also like to extend a special thanks to Whole Soul Works (check my AO3, under Eternal_Sailor_X, for a link to their website), which has been a huge inspiration and motivator to try my hand at writing again. Certain elements and themes in the "To Be a Hero" series have been inspired by the 'Scary Pages' found on the website above.

For those of you who have not noticed in the summary (or in the tags on AO3) this story is an epic, meaning this is going to be a long-ass fanfic. So, just so you know what’s going on, this fic will be updated in sections. How long and when each section gets posted depends on the section length, the planning involved, the research needed and my schedule.

So, for those of you who don’t have the patience or time on something this long, you’ve been sufficiently warned. For those of you willing to give it a shot, welcome aboard and it’s an honor to have your time and attention.

This will primarily be an action and adventure fic. This isn’t going to be a romance where Yugi meets the love of his life who has come to rescue him or make the pain go away or fills a void or whatever. While Yugi is/will be pansexual, and will certainly meet people and experience love and sexuality, it’s not going to be that oath-sworn, everlasting crap most people expect to read or look for. Oh, and if you’re looking for smut you’re reading the wrong fic.

Yugi will not be perfect. He’s going to make mistakes and face the consequences that go along with those mistakes. There will be gains and losses. But more importantly, Yugi will find something that very few have ever managed to discover in their entire lives.

The one thing I’m apprehensive about is the potential issues that may come up. Honestly, I’m not going to waste my time listing off all the potential things that is going to set people off. So, if there is anything that comes up that is upsetting, please talk to me. Write a review or PM me, I don’t care. While it certainly isn’t my intention to make anyone angry or to cause offense, these are things that I would like to have a better understanding of. And while I can easily look up a bunch of this stuff online, to me there’s a significant difference when you talk to someone personally about their own feelings and experiences.

Thank you and enjoy.
