Author has written 6 stories for Maple Story, Final Fantasy: Tactics Advance, 07-Ghost, and Overwatch.

Original writing: You can check out my Tumblr (slash warning!) or my Fictionpress, though the latter isn't used.

Fandoms I follow: Maplestory, Ragnarok, Persona, Shakugan no Shana, Dragon Age, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, D. Gray Man, Fire Emblem, to name a few.

As you might notice, the list of stories I have under my belt are... startlingly few, because I've written a good number of fics but have always kept on deleting them. Hopefully I will finish one that isn't a one-shot.

Avatar: Current avatar shamelessly stolen from Eldanis on deviantart.

Announcements: Chapter 10 of Oathbreaker is being edited!

FYI: Biography is actually truly written in a diary in full longhand, and each entry signed by Ismet himself (refer to the cover image for his signature).

Little Red Riding Hood (Collaboration with Absol Master and seemingly forever in progress)
Biography(Not actively updating. Have a HUGE backlog of un-transcribed scripts though.)
