Current Fan Fics:
Ongoing Fan Fics:
Pokemon: A Marvelous Journey, Johto Arc (Pokemon): As of now, this fan fic is my current one and my ambitious passion project. It details the adventures of a young girl with autism and her trusty friend, a shiny Pichu. Together, they make friends, meet legendary pokemon, fight bad guys, rescue good guys, and find their place in a world that can often be very cruel to those who are different. I have several sequels planned out, as I have wanted to write a Pokemon fan fic for years, since I was a kid, even. A new and awesome friend of mine, Wildstar93 (whose work you should definitely check out), inspired me to finally start this.
Love Feels Like Home (Tales of Zestiria): A WIP Tales of Zestiria fan fic taking place in the modern day. Basically another modern day AU, slightly based on The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Sorey Shepherd was looking forward to a bright, happy future where he would go to college, major in archaeology and history, be with his friends, and have a great summer. Everything was going great...that is, until tragedy takes his mother away, and the colleges he applied to all reject him. His only family is a grandfather he barely knows, and is sent to the tiny town of Elysia to live with him. All of these events are far too overwhelming for Sorey to handle, and with Sorey being autistic, the changes are proving to be too much. But even in his darkest moments, a helping hand from a new friend just might be the thing he needs to be able to cope with what an uncertain future holds for him.
Fics On Hiatus:
Howling Gem (Steven Universe): In progress as of right now. It's basically about Steven and Connie finding another Crystal Gem, who happens to be acquainted with Pearl, Garnet, and Rose Quartz from when the Gem War happened, and they try to help him get past his traumas. But some Homeworld Gems managed to find them and are intent on not just bringing the Gem to Homeworld, but having the Crystal Gems executed for their actions many millennia ago. I have 12 chapters planned, but only five have been written out, with chapter six being written. Currently on hiatus so I can work on my Pokemon fic.
The Lunar Tales of Sailor Luna (Sailor Moon): Currently on hiatus so I can work on my Pokemon fic.
The Wild Dragons (Akatsuki no Yona) - A Yona of the Dawn fan fic based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, The Wild Swans. While stopping in a town on their journey, a strange sorceress named Tai-Ling casts a spell on Shin-Ah, Hak, Zeno, and Jaeha, turning them into small birds out of resentment. Yona, Yun, and Kija are spared, but in order to break the spell, they have to knit six long scarves out of stinging nettle and if they so much as complain or utter one word about it, their friends will live the rest of their lives in unending physical/eternal pain until they die. Although the task is tough, Yona, Yun, and Kija strive to save their friends from the spell. It will be six chapters long. On hiatus due to losing inspiration for working on it and other projects taking priority.
Completed Fan Fics:
Together With The Wind (Pokemon): A simple one-shot about Zinnia, about my own theory on what happened to her and Aster. It just came out after a bout of inspiration provided by one of my all-time favorite Japanese Pokemon songs.
Memories Of You (Mother 3): Just a one-shot about Lucas reminiscing on his mother and brother. I personally am fond of this one-shot.
Sylvia The Sylveon (Pokemon): I currently consider this to be my Magnum Opus. As soon as the first picture of Sylveon, the fairy type Eevee evolution, came out two years ago, a muse popped up in my head, and I HAD to make a story for it. It has turned out to be my most successful story yet. I loved working on it, my fans love it, I managed to get it done in less than a year, and even though it does have its flaws, I still consider it to be my baby.
Twilight Pretty Cure (Pretty Cure): A completely original Pretty Cure fan fic with an all OC cast. It's about four (later six) young girls who team up with a family of fairies whose world was destroyed by a kid who stole their treasure. Said kid is on a mission, and the girls have to stop him from potentially destroying Earth. Undergoing a massive rewrite. I'd consider this my Parvum Opus, but a bad yaoi story I wrote in high school was WAAAAAAAAAAY worse, along with my super bad Super Robot Monkey Team fan fics from seventh grade.
Beyond The Scarlet Twilight (Go! Princess Precure): A poem about Cure Scarlet, one of my favorite Cures in the series, detailing her struggles with dealing with the trouble she caused the heroes.
Ringing Bell (Shounen Onmyouji): A one-shot that takes place after the end of the series, where Masahiro tries to come to terms with the fact that his childhood friend has lost his memories and will never be the same. Kinda an old one that, looking at it now, I'm not really proud of. Too pretentious and full of purple prose.
Digimon: A Seraphic Tale (Digimon): My passion project from 2011-2014. It tells the tale of many young children who receive Digimon. Said Digimon's world has been destroyed by MoonMillenniummon, and they need the humans' help if they're going to defeat him. I loved working on it and many fans loved it. But looking back...it's admittedly not very good. I could have written a bunch of stuff better (such as Ayaka's overall character, Aria's situation, Rena and Riku's parents and their reactions to Rena losing her leg, Rena losing her leg in general, have Julia be less of a self-insert character, etc.), some stuff was too melodramatic and felt too much like an after school special, and I could have toned down some stuff. I plan on writing a sequel that'll resolve all of the loose ends left dangling and be less...exaggerated. Still, I don't regret writing it. I wish I could go back and redo it and take out or change things, but my Pokemon fan fic takes priority, and I don't have the motivation or inspiration to get back to it. Maybe Tri can change that...
Red Velvet Valentine (Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons): Just a fluff piece based on the characters Lillie and Raeger.
That's How The Peanut Butter Cookie Crumbles (Voltron: Legendary Defender): Again, same as RVV, just a fluffy one-shot about everyone's favorite Space Dad and green Voltron Paladin. Also: DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN EPISODE FIVE ONWARD!!!
Elysia's Little Treasures (Tales of Zestiria): Yet another fluffy one-shot, this time starring the two main characters as babies and detailing how they became friends. This is the one-shot that I'm the most proud of, as I really enjoyed working on this. It's also my most popular fan fic on my AO3 account.
Never Walk Alone (Pokemon XY): An Amourshipping one-shot starring Ash and Serena. It's a gift for an online friend of mine.
Precious (Tales of Zestiria): Once again, another fluffy one-shot. Just a silly, self-indulgent piece I wrote on a bout of inspiration. Terrible title is terrible.
Discontinued Fan Fics:
Parfum Pretty Cure (Pretty Cure): Cancelled because all the drama in the Precure Tumblr fandom killed any motivation I had for working on it. So to counteract this, it's going to be retooled into an original story this time. Sorry, fans and reviewers who reviewed this. But I did save all your reviews onto my hard drive so your feedback and criticism is still around!
Planned Fan Fics:
Show By Rock: The Retelling (Show By Rock!!): Basically a novelization of the anime series, but will HEAVILY expand on the anime and plot points that never got followed up on, such as Rom and Shuzo's supposed relationship, along with original ideas for all of the bands' backgrounds, personalities, dreams, etc. As much as I love the anime, it is VERY flawed and it could have been so much better had it been allowed more episodes and time to really explore the characters, setting, and story. Since the second season got announced, I'll hold off on writing it until I finish the second season and see if it addresses the flaws I mentioned above.
A Rumor On The Wind, Scattering Like Cherry Blossom Petals (Show By Rock!!): A sequel to the above SBR fan fic starring Uwasanopetals. They had potential, but I found it a shame that the anime relegated them to cameos who did nothing but whine. This sequel will detail how they meet, made their band, and them going to Midi City and other locations to make it big.
Digimon: A Seraphic Evolution (Digimon): A sequel to Seraphic Tale, finishing the story and resolving plot points and plot holes that didn't get followed up on in the first series. I intended for Seraphic Tale to just be one whole series, but with how long it is, I figured it'd be easier on everyone else if I split it into two so as nobody gets tired of reading sooooo much of one thing.
The Tale of Team Go-Getters! (Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red and Blue Rescue Team): A PMD fan fic novelizing the video games. It'll be about a human girl named Hikaru who turns into a pikachu, who befriends a friendly chikorita, Chloe, and a rambunctious togepi, Eleanor, and they go on adventures, help their friends, and try to figure out why the pikachu had come to the pokemon world, along with figuring out why there have been many natural disasters.
Magnagates And Infinite Labyrinths (Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates To Infinity): A PMD fan fic novelization of the game. A young human girl, Saoirse, comes to the pokemon world transformed as a Deerling. She befriends a friendly Cyndaquil, Apollo, and the two of them own a paradise. They have to develop their land, help others, and fight a strange entity known as the Bittercold.
Jewelpet Friendship (Jewelpet): My own Jewelpet fan series. In Jeweland, magical creatures called the Jewelpets live in peace. But while they may seem cute and loving, even Jewelpets can be cruel. Diana is one such Jewelpet who is disliked by others her own age because she wasn't created like a regular Jewelpet was. She tries to be friends, but they all reject her. However, Diana learns the awful truth when, one day, a strange force brainwashes her into unsealing an evil organization of ghosts and goblins called The Fassad Faction, whose goals are a mystery, but everyone knows they're up to no good. Jeweland is completely decimated, but not all hope is lost. Queen Jewelina sends various Jewelpets to Earth, asking them to bond with humans and make them into sorcerers, as the bond between humans and Jewelpets may be what can stop the FF once and for all. But the truth may prove to be even darker than what anyone expected, and there's far more at stake than everyone realizes. Inspired by Jewelpet Twinkle, my favorite show in the series. Ruby doesn't appear in this, as I'm sure there are people who are sick of Ruby.
The Chespin and the Fennekin (Pokemon): This one's about a Fennekin and a Chespin who become friends despite being owned by completely different trainers, and their friendship unknowingly brings forth conflict between said trainers. Despite the two promising to remain friends forever, their owners force them to go down very different paths in life, exacerbated by circumstances beyond their control, and their friendship is put in jeopardy.
Cinnamon and Friends (Cinnamoroll): A cute, fluffy fan fic starring one of my favorite Sanrio mascots, Cinnamoroll (who I still refer to as Cinnamon). Cinnamon meets a girl whose family runs a bakery, and he and all his friends go on lots of adventures, learning about life and getting into mischief, with some light drama involved as well.
Blooming Flowers, Fleeting Life (Pokemon) - In a distant future, a cataclysm caused by Giratina going wild almost decimates the world. An autistic woman, Minjonette, loses her parents and pokemon partners, but is saved thanks to a blood transfusion and new technology that restored her limbs. However, much to everyone's horror, the regenerated limbs have produced a poison that will gradually kill her. There is no cure, so all she can do is live out the last of her days in peace. Wanting to go back to her days as a pokemon trainer and stop herself from letting her upcoming death define her life, she catches a new pokemon, a Deerling she names Bambi, so she can at least have a constant companion for her to live out her last days in comfort. She'll be surprised with how much meaning the friendly deer can bring to her final days on Earth.
The Tale of Lady Lovely Locks (Lady Lovely Locks) - Basically an expanded, rewritten version of the cartoon from the 1980s that addresses all of the show's flaws, such as Lady Lovely Locks being too perfect despite not doing much of anything, everyone not having much character, the lack of a compelling storyline, utilizing neat plot ideas that never got explored in the show, how the land of Lovely Locks was formed, why Ravenwaves hates Lovely Locks, etc. It'll be a serious and slightly more realistic take on the story, with some dark elements though not without comedy and lighthearted moments.
Mother: Clarine's Oracion (Mother/Earthbound) - a Mother/Earthbound fan series that's still in the planning stages. Inspired by all the Mother/Earthbound games, and this is my love letter to it.
Let's Face The Music and Dance (Blubber) - This'll be an unofficial sequel to the Judy Blume book, Blubber. When an anonymous source fills the school in on everything that's happened to both Linda and Jill, all the kids involved are called to the principal's office, parents present, and confronted with everything they've done. After a few years, Jill has finally gotten her life together, preparing to go to college and make the best of her college years. But despite wanting to put the past behind her, people from her elementary school days keep coming back, and she's helpless to do anything but finally confront the truth. I've seen reviews of it complaining that the bullies don't get punished for what they've done to Linda and how they have zero character. I plan on rectifying both of these problems with this.
Love is a Flower, You Are The Seed (Pokemon): Based on a cute picture I found on Pinterest and inspired by a fan fic called Service Pokemon. When Bryn Sandoval's parents find that she's autistic, they decide to find her a Pokemon companion after hearing about the successes behind Pokemon companions helping special needs kids. They catch a Deerling whom Bryn names Elfriede, after a character from her favorite book. From then on, the two become friends and grow up together, going through all kinds of typical hardships, such as making friends, growing up, compromises, and most important of all, facing life's hardships head on, together.
Harvest Moon: Where The Grass Grows Green (Harvest Moon): It's a Harvest Moon fan series currently in the works. Chanel Villaverde is a proud, modern city girl, and when she learns that she and her family are moving to the country and owning a farm, she is anything but happy about it. In fact, at first she's determined to make her feelings about this as clear as possible as often as possible, much to the chagrin of those around her. Adapting to a big change like this can be hard. But making good friends, working with animals, planting crops, and even seeing what nature has to offer can teach her that farm life and city life both have their pros and cons, and the best thing to do is deal with the changes and make do with what you have. It'll be based on the first two GameBoy Color games, Harvest Moon and Harvest Moon 2, with the latter's setting but the former's admittedly very small cast of characters, but with plenty of OCs and a coherent story to liven it up a bit. Still in the planning stages.
Seeds of Tomorrow (Harvest Moon): a WIP fic taking place in Friends of Mineral Town's universe. Will have many divergences from the original game. Sterling Warwick, Ramona Goodwin, and Venus Mercer all have one thing in common: they both do volunteer work on the farm that's part of the Mineral Town Children's Center, a place where abused, exploited, or abandoned children go to recover from their traumas and receive regular therapy, such as art and animal therapy, among other things. Sterling has benefited from working on the farm since he and his father left their abusive mother/wife years ago. His childhood friend, Venus, also works on the farm, though she had an easier life than he did, and her animal therapy is more to help with her autism and to develop life skills for the future. Now, he can do what the farm did for him and Venus and maybe help someone else now that he's in high school. But the new girl, Ramona, doesn't seem to trust anyone despite being a hard worker and a devoted farmer. Maybe, just maybe, living in Mineral Town can help her come out of her shell. Still in the planning stages, but I plan to write it out once I finish Pokemon: A Marvelous Journey.
Undying Dreams (Ernest and Celestine): A WIP fan fic taking place after the Ernest and Celestine movie. Now that Celestine is in Ernest's custody, by law, he has to find a job to support himself and Celestine has to go to school. Although the two are happy with their new life together, they still have to deal with not only the prejudices that mice have toward bears and vice versa, their chosen hobbies that go against the norm (Ernest's love for music, Celestine's love for art and drawing), but their newfound reputations stemming from their attempted robberies. No matter what happens, they'll continue to reach for their dreams and make them come true.

Pokemon: A Noble Journey: Kanto Arc (Pokemon)
Pokemon: A Spectacular Journey: Sinnoh Arc (Pokemon)
Pokemon: A Glorious Journey: Unova Arc (Pokemon)
Pokemon: A Beautiful Journey: Kalos Arc (Pokemon)
Pokemon: A Journey Through Life (Pokemon) - A prequel to Marvelous Journey and the sequels, chronicling Julia's life, and a little bit of others, from birth to age 10.
