Author has written 45 stories for Harry Potter, Song of the Lioness, Lord of the Rings, Orson Scott Card, and Inuyasha.

For a while now, my status has been "former denizen of ff.net." I don't really write fanfiction anymore, though I'll leave up what I have because reviews are still a nice surprise. I'm senior majoring in linguistics and philosophy at Stanford. I am a recovering serial obsessor: I have, in the past, been obsessed with Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Orson Scott Card's Ender series, "Cowboy Bebop," "Samurai X," Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, and Neil Gaiman. I am now on cordial, though not intimate, terms with most of them. My current passions tend to be philosophical rather than fictional -- I have a minor crush on Immanuel Kant, a profound intellectual understanding with William James, and a Nietzsche quote for every occasion -- but I also like to work at the intersection of philosophy and literature. I once wrote a 23-page paper on moral theory in Watchmen. No joke.

Thank you to those who continue to read, enjoy, and review my work!
