About my fanfiction:

I've been writing fanfiction on and off all of my life but I started posting DC/Batman fanfiction in 2015. I started doing this on AO3, where you can find all of my works. I recently made a FF account and hope to eventually upload all of my existing works here. It might be a slow process as I have to fix formatting errors but I will try to get it up to date as soon as possible. If you're feeling impatient, feel free to check out my AO3 account linked above!

I write primarily Dick/Damian and Bruce/Dick, but I dabble in other pairings as well. I'm a multi-shipper and ship Dick with just about anyone. My fics are all pairing-based and usually dabble in drama, angst and/or smut. My stories are generally lengthy one-shots and deal with themes of moral ambiguity and alienation.

About me:

I read mostly DC and indie/alternative comics. I wear Gothic Lolita, which is where I get my username from (favorite brands are Innocent World, Metamorphose, Haenuli and Chantilly). I also like to draw, sew and cosplay. Currently I'm an English student with a minor in graphic design and I hope to publish my own comics.
