Author has written 11 stories for Legend of Zelda, Harry Potter, Harvest Moon, and Pokémon.
Hello everyone. My name is Elizabeth. I am returning to this site after several years in an attempt to get back into writing. It's been very therapeutic for me, and I hope you enjoy reading the stories as much as I enjoy writing them. If my writing has made you feel something, then I have done my job.
My belief as a writer is that pretty much every plot has been done before. However, if you can make good, believable characters, they can drive the story, and you can end up writing anything!
I am a HUGE fan of the Harvest Moon series, and I am especially interested in the world of Mineral Town. The characters are fascinating and very fun to expand on. Hopefully, throughout my different stories, you will be able to get a feel for the culture of Mineral Town that I have created; you may see some elements from other games, and I hope that helps create the idea that Mineral Town is just a small village in a large farming community.
My Mineral Town is decidedly more Japanese than most people write it; I just took a look at the game and noticed how heavy of a Japanese influence there is in (M)FoMT. In my mind, Mineral Town doesn't exist on any map we know of; I like to think that it is in a country that is an eclectic blend of America, Europe, and Japan, and I try to keep that in mind as I write.
I have put a ridiculous amount of research into my stories including Japanese Culture, medicine, botany, animal husbandry, winemaking, religion, blacksmithing, actual farming, and falconry, just to name a few. I have really enjoyed learning new things to add to my writing, and if you have any questions about anything in my stories, feel free to send me a PM, I don't bite.
My goal with my writing is to create deep characters that feel like real people. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and read my stories.
I'm mostly focusing on Harvest Moon right now, but I've been kicking around a few ideas for Legend of Zelda Stories.

The Shy Newcomer: I've dusted off this little number eight years later to get back into writing, but it has done so much more for me than I could have ever hoped for. MFoMT Long Fic with references to other games. A story of Claire learning for the first time what it means to be part of a community. She finds herself, a few new friends, a love of farming, and the love of a particular young man. Sprinkled with humor, serious moments, and dorky references. You may notice I update it like crazy; I've been working on it before quite a while before gaining the courage to post it on here. Most of my Harvest Moon one shots take place at the same time as this story. In a way, this story sets the tone for my own little Harvest Moon Universe.
It Wasn't Just Chance: I'm finally starting to post it! Yay! This story follows Ann and her relationship with their newest tenant at the Inn, Cliff. It takes place during the events of The Shy Newcomer. This story will be updated as The Shy Newcomer is updated, as similar events take place during both stories.
The Roommates: Companion to "The Shy Newcomer"; takes place during the same events. The teaser chapter is up! The reason why I didn't completely delete and repost this story was because I didn't want to ditch anyone who was following it. I have quite a bit of material written for it already. It will be posted a bit more slowly than my other stories, as it focuses on Cliff's and Gray's backstories and their inner struggles. I'd like all major plot points to be revealed in "The Shy Newcomer".
Brittle: Harvest Moon MFoMT one shot. Karen wonders if things will ever change in their sleepy little town. Jack is eager to show her that they already have.
A Vodka Heartache Tonic: Harvest Moon MFoMT one shot. Duke comes to the bar daily to escape his family problems, but that can hardly be done if he is sneaking around behind his wife's back.
Servant and Master: Harvest Moon MFoMT Oneshot. First complete story from my hiatus. I'm hoping it feels a little more grown up and flows a bit better. Our resident blacksmith strikes ore, and a bargain.
A Lump of Copper: Harvest Moon MFoMT. 1st person Gray's point of view. Gray is not the easiest person to make friends with. He has a hot temper and little patience. But a certain blonde farmer won't take "no" for an answer. Short Fic. Old stuff, pretty sappy.
Aw, Snap!: Pokemon Snap. A silly one shot of a day in the life of our dearly loved, overworked Professor Oak. Why is it so hard to find good help these days?
Preparing: Harry Potter Oneshot. Draco is preparing for his sixth year at Hogwarts. What is it like to live on the other side?
Doug's Boys: I tried to stop it, but it just wanted to happen! I'm not going to fight it anymore! Mineral Town/Forget-Me-Not Greaser AU. There will be crooked politicians, greasers, yankees, trouble with the cops, sunglasses worn indoors, lots of leather, denim, and pomade, and, of course, rumbles and turf battles. I'm a little too excited about this one, guys.
A Pete-Central longfic of his life in Forget-Me-Not Valley: Still in the brainstorming phases; I'm hoping it will have a sort of yin-yang relationship to The Shy Newcomer.
Happy reading, and thanks for checking out my profile!
