Author has written 4 stories for Final Fantasy XI, Detective Conan/Case Closed, Harry Potter, and White Collar.

Greetings. After years (yes, years) of having an account, I have finally decided to put in my profile. So grab a nice cup of tea and delve into the boring narcissism that is all about me!

Name, age, location? Boring and also very personal. Next please! Okay, okay, I was born in 1984, so you can get a general idea of my age. I live in the USA, also.

I love to read. I got into writing simply because I ran out of things to read. So, I decided to write and then I would have my own stuff to read when I got bored. I have lots and lots of horrible stories (original stories and fanfiction from many different types of media) locked away in notebooks and thumb drives, never to be read by eyes other than mine. I write for my own enjoyment and for the hope that maybe my writing will inspire ideas/creativity/imagination in others. My job is not related at all to writing, so thankfully I don't get tired of writing or daydreaming or reading.

Crossovers. I looooove crossovers. But only if they're done properly. Overall, I don't like it when characters suddenly turn into the characters from another show/book/movie, etc. I like it when worlds collide and each world maintains their own rules and the characters have to sort it out on their own. The stranger the crossover media, the better. If it's done properly. Bah. For example, take something like... oh something random like Harry Potter and CSI. Two totally different medias. One is fantasy and the other is mystery. Now, I would hate it if any of the CSI characters were secretly wizards. It just doesn't make sense! But I would love it if say Harry and his friends decided to make a Spring Break trip to Las Vegas and got caught up (somehow!) in a case. I don't even really mind if the CSI team discovered the world of wizards, so long as it was done decently.

Or Bleach and Detective Conan. How amusing would it be if Ichigo and his human friends got stuck in a murder! Or better yet, the captains in gigai form! Having to suffer around a frighteningly perceptive “7-year-old” boy while they are suspects in a case? Pure gold! But I would hate if any of the Bleach characters got shrunk into kids. Or the Conan characters were Shinigami. But I digress...

Probably the single thing I hate most about reading stories is when a writer starts a story and never finishes it. I am 100 percent guilty of this myself, and there are numerous unfinished stories in the deep vaults of my secret lab. Which is why as a personal rule, I will never post anything unless it is complete. I know this site is a work-in-progress site, but sometimes I come up with ideas that require the earlier chapters to be tweaked. Details added, scenes lengthened, not to mention a solid round of editing and polishing. And it's not fair to the readers to suddenly change it up on them. Especially since I tend to write mysteries or adventure-oriented stories. It's not a good twist unless there is a decent set-up and sometimes I don't think of a twist until halfway through the story. Plus, I hate sinking my teeth into a good story and it end halfway through with no conclusion. I refuse to allow my (small) band of readers (do I have any?) to be disappointed. So, if anyone is reading this and following any of the stories I might post, rest assured they all do have conclusions. There will eventually be a “complete” tag attached to every story I post. One way or another.

That's the main reason all the stories I have posted so far have been one-shots. Most of my longer stories are incomplete or I'm much to shy to post them.

Everything I post has been read and reread by me and maybe one or two of my friends before it hits the internet. That's not to say that there aren't mistakes. Please point them out! Nothing breaks a story's ambiance worse than a misspelled word or cluttered formatting. I may not be the best writer out there, but everything I post is my personal best.

I do take criticism! Please leave me lots! I do want to improve. My main weakness tends to be descriptions. My writing tends to stray more toward the dialogue-oriented type. I'll add in hand motions and quick movements, but overall descriptions tend to be a very very weak point of mine. So I try to make a very big effort to focus a lot on that part of my writing during the editing stage.

I don't read or write slash. I'm sorry, it's just not really my thing. That being said, I don't read or write X-rated fiction of any kind.

I don't mind self-inserts if they're done properly. Generally, I will give any self-insert a once-through and if I enjoy the style in the first chapter I will continue reading.

I write for my own enjoyment and my enjoyment only. My only wish in sharing my stories is for others to enjoy what I have written. That is my primary objective. I sincerely hope each and every reader enjoys my stories. I will, however, personally reply to each and every person who leaves a review (if they sign in so I can click on the 'reply' button). You went out of your way to read and take the extra effort to leave a review, and I thank you for that *bows*.

And on that note, I shall end this long tirade all about me. Ugh, I feel sorry for anyone who had to put up with my self-centered drabble. I hope you enjoy my stories!

Update December 27, 2011: I guess I can come out and say it here: I currently have a sequel planned. I've outlined a basic plot (who, what, why) and from there I can develop a story (the 'how' part). I've already gotten a short, poorly-written chapter 1 typed (remember I'm horrid with beginnings and descriptions, so I'll need a good solid round of editing on that bit before it sees the light of the internet postings). I have the Interpol team all planned out, so it'll be a fun game of "guess the cameo" similar to the guest characters in my last story. I have several individual scenes planned, so writing should progress rapidly once I get to those parts. Here's a basic teaser blurb:

Excalibur's Sheath (tentative working title)

Interpol summons the White Collar unit to London because they need Neal's expertise on a stolen tapestry dating back to Arthurian times. While there, Peter vows to solve the suspicious discrepancies surrounding Harry Potter and his friends. Can Harry, Ron, and Hermione successfully assist the White Collar unit while staying one step ahead of Peter's sharp intelligence?

My New Year's Resolution will be to finish this story by March 1.

Update February 29, 2012: Uhm. Yeah. Well, the good news is I haven't stopped writing. The bad news is I'm still only 10.5k words (and halfway through chapter 3) into the sequel. I'm trying to make it more of an Uncharted or National Treasure experience - where Clue A leads to Clue B which leads to Clue C (you get the idea) rather than a straightforward adventure/mystery like the normal White Collar episodes. I think that would add a bit more epicness to the story (think the White Collar Music Box saga clue-hunting) because it's related to the Arthurian legends. I can't promise I won't be distracted in the coming months by more video gam- uh... real life issues, but I do promise to finish this. At least before the premiere of White Collar in the summer. Because that annoying season finale just completely tosses my realistic timeline out the door.

My Interpol team has been introduced and every single one of them is a nod to a character not of my own creation. I have three TV characters, one video game character, and one manga character. Have fun guessing who is who... some are simple and some are obscure. Just to note, these are NOT the actual characters, so don't slam me for not putting the Interpol team in-character. These are homages.

On a side note: 5 Interpol agents, 4 White Collar people, 3 Harry Potter wizards, 2 recurring minor characters, and a villain do NOT a happy writer make. I might have to split up my White Collar unit and my Interpol team in order to make this a decent story without too much character juggling. But these are just my ramblings, in case anyone was wondering what I thought while writing this story at the moment.

I'll try to make monthly updates, so at least you guys are kept in the loop.

Update May 7, 2012: No, I haven't forgotten about this story yet. I had a severe case of writer's block and it took me 2 months to finally pound out about 3000 words so I can wrap up chapter 4, which I did last night. And to prove that chapter 4 is currently in first place as the "hardest chapter of the story to write", I wrote another 3300 words today on chapter 5 (for a total of nearly 20k words to date), and am close to wrapping that chapter up. Hopefully, *knocks on wood* this will jump-start me back into churning out these chapters at a regular rate. Because I'm starting to get sick of seeing this grouping together, and that's never a good thing.

Interesting trivia: Chapter 5 in Horn of Amalthea proved to be my Kryptonite - taking 2 months to write and revise and make legible sense. In this story, it's chapter 4... coincidence that it's so close? (And for those of you who care, Chapter 8 was my favorite to write in Horn of Amalthea).

Update July 18, 2012: Still working on it. 29k words so far. Slowly but surely.
