Author has written 47 stories for Harvest Moon, Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis, OMORI, and Legend of Zelda.

Find me on Ao3 as durotos, and tumblr as durotoswrites . I'm trying to transfer more of my stuff onto Ao3, and I post a lot of minifics and drabbles on tumblr.

I apologize for the slump, but I'm starting to get ideas again, and writing is enjoyable again. Thank you for your patience.

Hello everyone. My name is Elizabeth, but I also go by Liz. Written words have always been easier to express myself than spoken, and I've found comfort in writing stories. 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!

As you can probably tell, 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 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.

A lot of my characters are a blend of the different versions of them in the games I've played. For example, Gray is a blacksmith's apprentice, but I added a love of horses, as he was a rancher back in HM64 - just little things like that. Hopefully you will find that my characters are a unique twist on what others have written.

I have put a ridiculous amount of research into my stories including Japanese Culture and customs, 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, or if you want to talk about your own works, 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 hoping to delve more into original works, and as I take this time to focus on my writing career, my goal is to get a manuscript going for a novel that I'd like to publish. I currently have a writing blog that I'm hoping to get updated more frequently. You can check it out at:

I also have a Deviant Art account! Check it out for my original works, poetry, and fan fiction!

Random Facts About Me:

I'm a lefty, but like many growing up in a right-handed world, I have a strange preference of which hand I use to do different things and can't use left-handed tools half the time. I want to become ambidextrous!

I love experimenting with cooking of all kinds of ethnicities, and a lot of the cooking segments in my story are based on real-life experiences and experiments (Chocolate Curry, anyone? Really, it's kind of good!)

I have extremely vivid dreams. I can recall textures and patterns on fabrics, smells, sounds. This is both a blessing and a curse, as I am prone to nightmares. I've been lucid dreaming a lot lately, not necessarily on purpose.

I live in a very woodsy area and I've done a bit of research of what I can eat in my backyard. I'm hoping to take better advantage of it once winter's over. I get strange looks from coworkers when I bring Queen Anne's lace on the top of my salad. With a little warming up,

I can mimic a near-perfect falcon screech. Just don't ask me to do it; I get too giggly and can't do it.

Favorite Games include the Harvest Moon Series, Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, Rune Factory, Earthbound/Mother series, Kirby, Katamari Damacy, E.V.O., Tenchu, Guilty Gear Series, Odin Sphere, pretty much any Mario game (especially Mario RPG!!!), JRPGS (Mana Series, Breath of Fire, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy (Especially 4, 5, and 6!), Tales of, Chrono Trigger, etc.) among a million others. I like to think the golden age of gaming was the late SNES era, but I have consoles up to the Gamecube/PS2 era. Yeah, I'm a little behind the times, but I'm cool with that. I do have a 3DS, but I don't play it nearly as often as I used to. Been too busy writing!

I'm a total scaredy cat when it comes to horror stories, movies, and games. Seriously, they give me nightmares... But I am an avid player of the board games Elder Sign and Arkham Horror. Go figure.

In school, I was a complete band nerd and played several musical instruments. After the pressure of being in so many competitions and performances, I have almost completely stopped playing, but I still miss it sometimes.

I enjoy writing song lyric parodies and spend waaaay too much time thinking about them. I think I was weird Al's moustache in a previous life.

Maybe I'll add to this list if I think of something else that's interesting, but hopefully that gives you a better idea of what I'm like.
