Author has written 13 stories for Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy VII, and Final Fantasy XII.

Updated as of 10/8/2012:

I've been gone for a very long time and a break up as well as unemployment has led me back to a passionate hobby I once abandoned. I have several unfinished stories that I am looking to complete before I decide to move onto anything else. I'm terrible at finishing anything and I figure this will be a good challenge to give to myself (if you see a story that you like and want me to continue, don't hesitate to PM pester me, I need it).

Upon careful consideration and realizing that 8 years may be just a little too long to tackle certain storylines, such is the case with Disastrous Behaviors. This story I just cannot continue. I thought once I started the revisions, everything would flow. Unfortunately, I found myself at a standstill with Chapter 4, and reread my revisions to find that I'm simply not happy with the story at all. So even though I said I would finish it, I will not. It will just be a story that reminds me of how far I've come.

The next project will be Boys Don't Cry, which thankfully isn't really in need of any revisions. A new chapter is in the works so I'll be looking to wrap that one up in a couple chapters. I'm still wary on Illusionary. I fear that may be another work that might just have to stay dead, but I'll see.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to kickstarting the writing bug and getting back into the swing of things.

Thanks.
