LUCKY CHILD is on HIATUS for the duration of July as I participate in Camp NaNoWriMo. The next chapter will be posted August 4, 2018.

Tumblr: "luckystarchild [dot] tumblr [dot] com"

I am very active on Tumblr and post lots of Lucky Child head canons on my account. I also answer reader asks and reveal Behind the Scenes factoids about the fic. When on hiatus, this is the best place to reach me.

"Lucky Child" came to me in late 2016. Didn't want to post YET ANOTHER self-insert story, as the YYH fandom is full of good ones and I didn't see the point in rehashing concepts others have done a great job covering. But then this particular flavor of self-insert availed itself, and it felt unique, we are.

Fun and/or Useless Facts About Me That Might Affect "Lucky Child":

  • I have degrees in business and poetry.
  • Random skills include basic car maintenance, limited vocal training, passable cooking, so-so artistic skills, a good memory, a combination of intelligence and laziness that frustrated every teacher I ever had, and unabashed, pigheaded gall.
  • I'm allergic to cats and dislike olives.
  • I can be overly prideful. I hate this about myself.
  • Injustice infuriates me, and I will not stay quiet in its face. I love this about myself.
  • Children annoy me.
  • Red is my favorite color.
  • No one knows I'm an introvert because I'm good at faking enthusiasm and gregariousness. I could probably make friends with a tiger shark if I tried, so most people think I'm an extrovert. Those people would be wrong. Those people have been successfully fooled.
  • I have an anxiety disorder and pick at my cuticles until they bleed.
  • I get panic attacks. They are precisely zero fun.
  • My chipper faux-extroversion is caused by my anxiety disorder. I'm convinced everyone will hate me, and I'm overly friendly to compensate.
  • A rally-car driver and my grandmother taught me to drive, so I drive either like a maniac or a grandma. THERE IS NO IN-BETWEEN.
  • I did competitive rifle shooting as a kid and was good at it.
  • I was raised on a ranch and can mark cattle, ride horses, gut/clean game, and administer first aid.
  • I'm scared of clowns, sharks, and deep water.
  • I have lots of tattoos.
  • I'm an atheist. This is one of the least important things about myself, but it's one many people have fixated on regardless.
  • I'm LGBT. Most comfy with the label "queer", but if pressed will identify as pansexual.
  • I find talking to strangers easier than talking to coworkers/people I have to see daily. If I mess up with a stranger, they'll never see me again, so there's less pressure.
  • My hair is down to my butt. I cut my hair last week and donated 12 inches to charity. My hair is still down to my boobs.
  • My impatience is the stuff of legend.
  • I can't stand repeating myself.
  • I can't stand repeating myself.
  • Irony makes me laugh.
  • Self-deprecation is my go-to form of humor. It gets vicious. Apparently I don't like me much.
  • Puns are my second-favorite go-to form of humor. It gets insistent. Apparently I don't like me much.

  • A few people have asked, so I wanted to make it clear that if you ever want to draw anything from my stories, you are completely welcome to do so. Just send me a link so I can shout you out and show people how amazing/awesome/fantastic/glorious you are. ;)

    I'm in the middle of compiling a long Tumblr post with links to all Lucky Child illustrations; will provide a link when that's assembled.

    Lucky Child's cover art is by Tumblr user "m-ilk1." FFnet is weird about links; I hope that hyperlink works! If not, please search their username on Tumblr to see their amazing work.

    Folding Socks by Archaeological reviews
    Sending a kid to Yuuei is no small feat for a single mother, so when Tokio's daughter was expelled by her homeroom teacher along with the rest of her classmates, it was no wonder that neither took it well. It was also no wonder that said mother kind of overreacted when he showed up at the café where she worked. Things only went downhill from then. [Pre-series]

    Graveyard Girl by owlloveyou reviews
    She stared down at the Ouija board, watching what little smoke left behind from the fire pit snake out from underneath the board and curl around it before crawling to the sky. The candle lights flickered ominously, casting a surreal glaze of orange light over the board and her friend's faces. She knew better than to do this, and so she knew she deserved what would come.
