Author has written 8 stories for Final Fantasy VII.

What goes into a profile? Do you really care about my demographics? My interests? My fandoms?

Probably not. But since you're reading this, I have to come up with something, don't I?

I guess I would call myself a classic gamer girl, and I do mean classic. I was hooked from the days of the Atari and Commodore 64. Zelda, Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy 3 on Super Nintendo were the obsessions of my childhood. Final Fantasy 7 holds a special place in my heart because it was the first game I bought on my own -- and $50 is a lot on a paper route salary. I didn't even own a PlayStation, but my boyfriend did. I named Cloud and Tifa after him and me, and that's where it all began.

Over twenty years and two kids later, and we still love our video games. I work as a software engineer, and I’m currently working toward my black belt in karate along with my kids.

In between all that, I fell into writing by accident and can't seem to climb out. There's something so empowering about being able to stir the emotions of a stranger on the other side of the world. Finding a kindred spirit who can obsess over a good game or a compelling character is just a bonus.

Everything I have in progress is something I plan to finish...eventually. If you haven't been scared away by the craziness in my head and you want to hear the rest, drop me a review or a PM. If you want to tell me how much I suck, that's cool too.

Top Guide (In This Town) by TrisakAminawn reviews
The thing about survivor's guilt is it doesn't care if there's nothing you could possibly have done when you were sixteen. The thing about being sent back in time to try anyway is that you end up having to save the world using such weapons as cookies, arson, and strategically telling the truth.

To be With You Today by Denebola Leo reviews
Tifa was happy Cloud was back home, but he still exiled himself from their room. It probably wasn't helping any that Yuffie was still staying at the bar.

The Jenova Project by Mr. Ite reviews
This is a novelization of Final Fantasy VII. It was originally written before the Compilation existed, and has been tinkered with across the years. It still does not follow Compilation canon, so some may consider this AU. Book I fully uploaded.

Wait For It by Mayonaka no Ame reviews
It wasn't exactly a scene from a fairy tale. It wasn't original or clever or even remotely romantic. But as Cloud dropped the ring into her hand, his eyes asking the question she had always dreamed of, Tifa knew there was only one possible answer… "No."

Spawn of Strife reviews
Taking advice from Yuffie Kisaragi was like trying to snatch an egg from under a sleeping condor - ill advised unless you were starving to death, and questionable even then. Tifa should know better. But when Cloud refuses to even discuss having a baby, it's time for desperate measures. What is he so afraid of, anyway?

Every SOLDIER has been exposed to Mako to strengthen his body and enhance his reflexes. But there is one thing the Mako cannot touch: his mind. Cloud Strife's mind is exceptionally malleable after being fractured and manipulated so many times. Now that he's settled into a routine at Seventh Heaven, what will it take for him to accept this weakness and allow himself happiness? Cloti
