Author has written 27 stories for Labyrinth, Naruto, Star Wars, Bleach, and Dragon Age.
Hello. It's been quite some time since I was active here. Basically, I deployed a few times in the last few years, and haven't written since. I've been back for awhile now, and honestly would like to start writing again. Thanks to those who have still been sending me such nice reviews/PMs while I've been away; I'll try to respond soon. I did miss this community.
Dragon Age: Inquisition
The Abyss Stares Back: A re-write of the Fade portion of 'Here Lies The Abyss.' I thought the Fade could have been so much more...well, everything, really. A dreamworld currently dominated by an ancient personification of fear, and all we get is 'green' and 'some rocks.' So I'm trying to inject a little more horror, a little more creativity, and maybe a little more emotion into that final choice...
Playing for Keeps: A one-shot (hopefully; I have trouble keeping things short) about my Inquisitor's decision to sacrifice the alliance with the Qun to save the Bull's Chargers. Because everyone seems to think that saving the Chargers is the 'soft, emotional' choice and saving the alliance is the 'cold, logical' choice, and I didn't think so at all.
Lost in Lowtown: (working title, because this one's kind of stupid) A year before the Conclave, Knight-Captain Cullen and Guard-Captain Aveline are struggling to put a still-chaotic Kirkwall back into some semblance of order. This involves dealing with rioting mages, rogue Templars, gang-wars started by the opportunistic, and a their own personal struggles with their pasts and personal choices. Oh, and then the Right Hand of the Divine suddenly arrives and starts asking a lot of very uncomfortable questions. The only allies they have are each other, and a shadowy figure who calls himself 'Chesterton' and may or may not actually be on their side.
NOTE: 'The Contract' is on probably-permanent hiatus again because even though I tried really hard, it's been years and I cannot seem to get my Naruto groove back. I'm so sorry.
Every Breath: I wrote this story backwards. I wrote the last four lines first, and then the three paragraphs before those four lines, and then I went and wrote the first chapter. I’m not kidding. Oh well. I liked it anyway. One shot.
Obvious: I heart Matsumoto. I didn’t quite write this backwards: instead, I started in the middle, got to the end, and then went back and tacked on a beginning. Dirty, in a subtle way. Except for Renji…but it’s Renji. One shot.
Release: A blatant excuse to write a violent Hinamori. No, really. I pretend like it’s a story about my take on how Hinamori might handle her trauma and how Hitsugaya might handle Hinamori. But it’s really just about the fight scene. One shot.
Mere Words: A sequel to Amber3’s Say The Words and When Words Aren't Enough Alternate-ending fic, you really need to read hers first to get it. Jareth, Sarah, and lots of other characters besides. Eleven chapters of experimenting with Jareth’s patience! Complete.
When Words Get In The Way: Sequel to Mere Words in which I actually collaborated with Amber3; unfortunately I got distracted by something shiny. Every now and again, though, Nobody climbs into my head and whispers plot bunnies, so there’s a chance I’ll come back to this one sooner or later. JarethxSarah. Incomplete.
A Moment: Another experiment. I was trying to draw a picture with words, to show a story rather than write one. One shot.
A Change In The Wind: A series of experiments for me. Some worked. Some didn't. Some really didn't. Another story I ought to just delete and be done with it, but can't seem to bring myself to hit the button. An attempt at writing good fight scenes, twisty conversations, betrayal, and something resembling a romance. Writing a non-OOC Gaara while still allowing for years of maturity and experience was hard (is also now AU). Complete, but may be getting an overhaul soon (if Middle Ground doesn't eat up all my spare time).
At the End of the World: Shino doesn't get enough love in most fanfics. Hell, he doesn't get enough love in this fanfic. It’s sad and tragic and yet another stylistic experiment in point of view (non-character first person). One shot.
Choices In the Dark: I have a hard time defining exactly what genre this story falls into, so I’ll just tell you what it isn’t: it isn’t action, introspective, or fluff. I guess you could call it an explanation. One shot.
For You: Experimental fic all the way through. A much more in-depth look at the Sakura-Lee pairing and how it might actually work. Some angst, some humor (YAY GAI-SENSEI!), some romance, and my very first detailed hand-to-hand fight scene. Complete. And check out the pretty fanart by Daminitri.
For You II: A Little More: Just a couple little add-ons to an older story. No coherent plot, but a few fun Gai-sensei moments, and a Neji cameo. Two shot.
I, Kunoichi: My first heavily researched story, centered on the kunoichi. I spent a lot of time looking up the mythology and methodology of female ninja in feudal Japan, and played around with that information by applying different aspects of the life of a kunoichi to different characters. Each chapter could be a one-shot, but there is an overall plot going on in the background that loosely connects each character. I actually really liked where this one was going. And then something terrible happened…WRITER’S BLOCK. I'm really hoping that someday I'll pull it up and some little light will go ding! in my brain. Until then, I have to make do with what I've got. Incomplete.
Playing With The Big Kids: This is what I do when I get stressed. I either write incredibly angsty one shots, or totally crazed goofball one shots. This is one of the latter. Shino and Tenten -centric, but lots of other characters and absolutely no plot. One shot.
The Middle Ground: I saw this, by LevyRasputin on deviantart. I wrote a story. Here it is. It morphed into a love story, but with a continued focus on strategy, fighting, and dealing with the issues inherent in being a shinobi of Konoha. Blood, guts, bugs, and jokes in bad taste - man this story was fun to write. (NOTE: The awesome Rel illustrated scenes in chapter 12, chapter 16, and chapter 18. The equally awesome Eight-Days-A-Week also illustrated a couple scenes from chapter 6 and chapter 20. They both have lots of lovely Shino/Tenten works on their deviant accounts, and links in their faves gallery for many more.) Complete, sequel pending.
EDIT: More art! Fairy-ferre drew a very pretty scene from chapter 14, lolitaninja has a really coolly colored depiction from chapter 1, and finally, arriku from deviantart drew a lovely rendition of this scene in chapter 24. Thanks to all the talented artists!
The Contract: A sequel to 'Middle Ground,' wherein Tenten learns what being part of a large shinobi clan means, and Shino learns that trust has to run both ways. And then there is that evil underground organization kidnapping Konoha children for unknown purposes. ON HIATUS
Strange and Beautiful: 50 sentences, each based on a different theme. Shino/Tenten, could be part of my Middle Ground universe but not necessarily. Complete.
Strength: Short rundown of the Sakura-Lee pairing and how it might have happened. More introspective than narrative. One shot.
Temperature: This is in response to the prompt 'winter,' a contest at this highly recommended Shino/Tenten Forum. The forum is wonderful and full of interesting Shino and Tenten goodies. My entry to the contest is longer than it should be, fluffier than just about anything I have written in awhile, and probably chock full of uninspired ideas - and I find myself unrepentant. It was fun to write, and I sort of hope that as predictable as the ending turned out...it maybe wasn't all that predictable after all. Complete. (EDIT: WOOT! Tempurature won the contest! Thanks guys, that's awesome! As my prize, I chose a digital painting from Rel. Check it out!)
Unbreakable: Haruno Sakura, her mother, her grandmother, and so on down the line. My first story written in the first-person narrative style. Speculative look at Sakura’s family. One shot.
Without Doubt: Also an experiment, although I tend to think of this one as a sort of failure. It just didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. People like to ask me if I was referring to Ino or Temari. You tell me. One shot.
Beautiful: Star Wars. Introspective look at Darth Vader/Anakin’s thoughts after the loss of Padme. Tragedy is subjective. One shot.
