Author has written 37 stories for Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy I-VI, Vagrant Story, Castlevania, Warcraft, Dragon Age, and Mass Effect.

I'm no one interesting, honestly. I'm just a twentysomething fangirl with too much time on her hands, and an obsession with all things Final Fantasy that borders on psychosis a lot of the time. I've been known to occasionally write genfic, but my heart is with slash, because that's where I really started writing fic. (Thank gods this site didn't exist when I was fourteen, or y'all would have been subjected to some truly heinous Duncan/Methos slashfic.)


On my Mass Effect fic: all of these stories feature my canon Shepard, Imani (Paragon, Colonist/War Hero, Vanguard), who is of Black American, Egyptian, and South Asian ancestry, and is in a polyamorous relationship with Garrus and Thane. My headcanon for Mass Effect 3 diverges substantially from canon on several key points, and all of the ME fic I write during that era reflects this. The major point of difference is that Mordin cured Thane of his Kepral's Syndrome between ME2 and ME3, while Imani was under house arrest. Thus, he survived the events of Priority: Citadel II and rejoined the Normandy's crew following that mission. Mainly, I'm putting this here to prevent confusion. My Shepard is very distinctly and very deliberately a multiracial Black woman of color, and one with a very detailed backstory and history, so if you're looking for the usual default white Jane Shepard stories you are probably going to be disappointed by my work.

On my Warcraft fic: as far as I'm concerned, Burning Crusade was a totally wacky AU that some crack monkey at Blizzard hallucinated. That's not to say there aren't some aspects worth salvaging from it. But Illidan attacking Shattrath for no reason when he desperately needs allies against the Legion? No. Kael going bat guano insane and leaving Illidan to build mako reactors, I mean manaforges in Netherstorm? No. And Sunwell Plateau or anything else that was birthed from that abomination of a manga or Richard A. Hack...hell to the naw. What it boils down to is that I'm a Warcraft lorehound and while I did learn to love WoW, I am sick and gorram tired of seeing my favorite lore characters bastardized and character assassinated in the name of giving the 13 year old e-peen wavers who give frell all about the lore something to beat on for shiny loot. Consider every post-Frozen Throne/WoW 1.0 fic I write to be AU, even if I don't label it as such.

On my (very old) FF7 fic: please, please check the dates on stories before you leave reviews correcting me about Zack's surname or similar details. Most of that fic was written well before the Compilation came out and started Jossing everything.

I can't believe I need to say this, but apparently people are this ridiculous: please do not come in my inbox with your Knaak and/or BC apologia. You will get ignored and/or blocked. I have literally been arguing with fanboys about these issues for years, and it has long since stopped being entertaining. If you have an issue with my opinions, don't come in my space and harass me about them. There are tons and tons of places on the internet where you can squee about Raptor Jesus' luxurious red hair and praise Chris Metzen's team of trained monkeys at typewriters all day long. My inbox is not one of them.
