Author has written 35 stories for Batman, Disney, Star Wars, and Zombies, Run!.

Sometimes I look back over my writing. It's fun to revisit old stories, like hanging out with friends. I don't really feel like my style is changing much, which in some ways is disappointing - if I'm not changing, I'm not improving! - but in other ways is kind of reassuring, like I've sort of figured out who I am as a writer by this point.

"Harder Than It Looks" was the first piece I'd written of any significant length. Now "Best Laid Plans" just hit 26 chapters, and it's still got several more to go! Additionally, my chapters seem to be getting a bit longer as well - HTIL was under 20k words, and BLP is getting close to 30 at the same number of chapters.

I've realized that (barring a very few exceptions) I still don't actually like to write. What I like is having written. Because then I get to talk about stories and characters and I love that so much! I think that's why I'm such a review junkie! I love getting detailed reviews, and I love giving them almost as much! It's so much fun to talk about what might happen next and why the characters are responding to the situation in certain ways.


Writing resolutions:

- I will use less of the following: bold, italics, ellipses, dashes.

- I will include more description, particularly of setting details. This means I may need to reacquaint myself with my characters' surroundings.

- I will vary the beginnings of my paragraphs, so that they don't all start with a character or with dialogue.

Yay stories!


Review policy:

  1. I will not leave criticism in a review unless asked to do so by the author. If I have suggestions for changes to what's already written, I will send a PM.
  2. I will review up to 1000 words upon request.
  3. I will not review everything I read, but I will review anything I favorite or follow, or anything I continue reading past 5000 words or so.
  4. I will respond via PM to every review from a member.
  5. I will review any story that features Corso Riggs! (This isn't a rule like the others so much as something that... just kind of happened. XD)

Here’s the order of the stories in The Adventures of Galaxy Girl and Farm Boy

N/A: Always – Early Ord Mantell through Tattooine

1. Winds From the East – IN PROGRESS – Early Ord Mantell
2. Flashy – Early Ord Mantell
3. Charting a Course – Mid Ord Mantell
4. Hurting Where It Hits – End Ord Mantell
5. Les Liaisons Doucereuses - Early Coruscant
6. Harder Than It Looks – Early Coruscant
7. Sugarbomb – Mid Coruscant
8. Dancing With Darmas – Late Coruscant
9. Rationale – simultaneous with DWD
10. Drunken Gunplay – Early Taris
11. Champion – Mid Taris
12. Tarisian Entertainment – Late Taris
13. Tangled Dreams – Late Taris
14. A Little Something In Reserve – Early Nar Shaddaa
15. Some Folks Just Need Killin' – Mid Nar Shaddaa
16. Sparring Practice – Mid Nar Shaddaa
17. Gentling – Late Nar Shaddaa
18. I Have My Reasons – Late Nar Shaddaa
19. Best Laid Plans - IN PROGRESS - Nar Shaddaa to Tatooine
20. Looking to the Future – Late Tatooine, but before the end of BLP
21. Monster – while leaving Tatooine


Current plans: 1 - Finish Vacy's first story arc (Act 1 of the SWTOR smuggler storyline). This will involve several more chapters of "Best Laid Plans" before moving immediately to the chapter finale in a separate document. The Alderaan class quests will be adjusted to fit with the Act 2 storyline, but I don't want to start that arc just yet. 2 - Revise the cycle's early fics to provide a more engaging introduction to readers who aren't already part of the fandom. 3 - Return to "Through the Gyroscope." No, I haven't forgotten about you, darling AU self-insert crackyfic! I'm hoping this will give me a nice breather before returning to Vacy's escapades. 4 - Begin Act 2!

I also haven't forgotten about "Broken," my fanfic for Disney's Cinderella, and I may return to that chapter by chapter in between Act 2 stories. But that's awhile in the future.

Broken: An Expansion of Disney's Cinderella reviews
This story parallels the original Disney movie, beginning immediately after the transformation scene and continuing through the rest of the movie. The idea is to focus on the "untold" parts or perspectives of a familiar story. *NOTE* This story is currently on hiatus, as my Star Wars characters are being much louder in their demands for attention. I do intend to finish it!
