Author has written 5 stories for Yu-Gi-Oh.
This is all Sepheroth's fault. Yes, that Sepheroth. It's complicated.

Name: PyrrhicVictories( 'Pyrrhic Victory: A victory that is offset by staggering losses. This expression alludes to Kind Pyrrhus of Epirus, who defeated the Romans at Asculum in a.d. 279, but lost his best officers and many of his troops. Pyrrhus then said: "Another such victory and we are lost."')

Age: 25

Gender: Female

Music: Yes please. I listen to anything and everything, from Nightwish to Stravinski to Busta Rhymes. No boy bands, though. Perish the thought.

Current Fandoms: Yuugioh, Star Ocean III, Suikoden series (Why yes, I do own all of the Suikoden games. grins> I just got lucky that way)

What I Write: Mostly dark shonen-ai, with some uuuuber-sweet fluff and romantic comedy tossed in. All one-shots - the idea of me having the patience to write a mult-chapter story is laughable.

A heartfelt thanks to all my reviewers, and anyone who stopped in to read, even if you didn't review. You keep me posting!

Things Which Are Awesome:

12/17/05

I know I really shouldn't put anything here unless I have a story to add, but I felt a strong need to do this: What the eff us going on with all the Mary-Sue stories in the YGO fandom lately? It hurts my head! Please, people, reign in your baser instincts, and stop with the self-insertion. If anyone cares, there's actually a section on this in my "Views on Fic" rant in my LJ. In any case, my Fic Reccomendation for this week is: SilvorMoon's "Why YuGiOh R is a Bad Place for Mary-Sues". Read it. It's amusing.

12/9/05

Ya, so about that "never writing a multi-chapter story" thing, ya know, in the section right above this one? well, it lies. I've actually been inspired to do a two-, possibly three-chapter story set in the Suikoden IV world. It would be shonen-ai, of course, Hero4xSnowe, but more implied than anything else. It would be set mostly during the Snowe-as-pirate phase, with a bit set in the right-near-endgame phase. Is there any interest in seeing something like this? I'll write it even if there's zero interest, but it helps to know that people might actually want to read it _.

11/12/05

I've decided to remove all of the random "Whee, look at my fic update!' stuff from here. That'll be on my LJ from now on.

Also, I currently have the pleasure of beta'ing Koshi Noriko's lovely YGO fic, Watch Over Me. Go read it!
