Author has written 17 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender.

If you have or are about to read my stories - thank you! I write fic to stretch the ol' writing muscles and apply the techniques I get right to my original fiction. If you want to know a little more about me, read on.

DOB: 1992

Lady or Gent: Lady

Country of Origin: Australia

Occupation: Farmer/business owner/admin worker (in other words: never ending jobs. Like ever. Do you think ewes have their lambs on a 9-5 schedule? I'm here to tell you they do not.)

Writing: I like to write fic for a couple of reasons. One, I think its a great way to sharpen your writing if you want to write OG fiction for publication. Reviews and comments are a great way to get instant feedback on your work. Two, you don't need to character or world build when writing fic - people already know the crew and the setting for the most part which frees you up for hella fun storytelling shenanigans. Three, if you procrastinate writing your OG fiction with other writing... well, you're still flexing the writing muscle.

Philosophy: Everyone has their own unique way to do their thing. Find your thing. Be your thing.


Story Noticeboard

Mine is from Zuko's point of view, while misszeldasayre’s covers Iroh's. You can find the links to both halves below:

Once, it was just a oneshot - first chapter can still stand alone. Katara was captured by Zuko, but there was a lapse in communication. Takes place after The Fortuneteller. Fierce Katara, honorable Zuko, and meddlesome Iroh. Also, music night! Cover art by Watermistress - check her out on tumblr bcs she rocks!

A Different Path by kangaroo2010 reviews
In a radically different show than what we know, the Gaang are all several years older, and Zuko didn't betray them beneath Ba Sing Se. Be ready for a bit of a more realistic take on The Last Airbender, intended for all of us fans who made the mistake of getting old. There will be drinking, smoking, adult language, and adult situations. No graphic sex, though. Sorry!

Rumour Has It: The Festival of Molten Sun reviews
'We need this,' Katara says quietly, intimately, as though they do not have the crushing weight of the whole Fire Nation on their collective shoulders. 'It's only a week.' He runs an anxious hand through his hair. 'A whole week? Katara…' 'What's one week out of the hundreds we've served over the last six years' He glances at his wife, at the loss of her sunny smiles. 'One week.'

Rumour Has It reviews
The Blue Spirit begins appearing in proximity to rumours of the Painted Lady. She cleans a polluted well and the sickness it caused in a tiny coastal town. The very same night, a crate of rice and cured meat wrapped in flame embossed bamboo appears by the well. It is said, the Blue Spirit is hunting the Painted Lady. Or that he's under her spell. In a way, both are true.

Mending Wounds reviews
'The Fire Prince is older. You can see it in the calmness of his expression, the relaxed carriage of his shoulders. He is smiling at her. She's never seen the Fire Lord's son smile.' While lost in the Foggy Swamp, searching for her brother and her Avatar, Katara is haunted by visions of the Fire Nation's disgraced prince. Visions of peace after war, visions of honour and secrets...

There's Not a Tea for Every Situation reviews
'Zuko scrunches his uncle's letter — the words "tea to relieve a woman's irritability and anxiety during pregnancy" wrinkling with mirth — and resolves to send a warning memo ahead of his wife to each of her meetings.' Zuko tries to teabend Katara's pregnancy blues away feat. Help From Iroh.

When There's a Firebender Hot for your Sister reviews
We follow Sokka's somewhat sexist and yet amusing habit of trying to prevent his sister being in anyway considered a romantic prospect. He can't be everywhere at once, but he can damn well try... Using the 2018 Zutara Week prompt "First Kiss."

Seven reviews
This is an angsty story. This is Avatar darkverse. This is a big steaming pile of nihilistic depressing. I wrote it this way because of a great proverb I heard recently: 'There is medicine in my shadow.' In the darkness, you can often find light and valuable lessons to learn. Especially in fiction, where no one truly gets hurt! Enjoy!

Nomad Discretion reviews
Part four of a four-part series in which Zuko discovers Druk, Sokka finds out about him, blabs to the wandering nomads and gets Aang and Zuko in all sorts of trouble. Location of the other three parts are on my profile.

Changing Tides Under Ba Sing Se reviews
The past begins to blur. It looks like an oil painting left out during a storm. He forgets how he came to be in the Crystal Catacombs, and when Katara asks him why he was thrown into that dark, dank hole of a cave, he drops his head into his hands because he can barely remember.

Do Not Fear the Waters of Change, Prince Zuko reviews
General Iroh was a more ruthless, prideful man when words on crimson paper tore his greatest fear from the obscurity of thought to grim, stark reality. Even after the hard won wisdom — a result of losing his son — his path is not easy to tread when his nephew makes all the wrong choices.

Hoarding Sand reviews
Sometimes, it's hard to take your sister seriously when she's made of ant-mites and there's a lemur plotting to kill everyone. An insight into what may well have been going through Sokka's head after he indulged in that desert cactus juice. This story assumes you're pretty familiar with episode 31 The Desert.

Be Water, My Friend, Be Water reviews
In dark times, people find comfort in the most unexpected places. An AU one-shot in which Zuko and Katara must confront the consequences of finding comfort in one another. Inspired by 'What a Wonderful World' by Louis Armstrong and how both the Eastern and Western philosophical and literary traditions have connoted the idea of water. Plus Zutara, of course. ONE SHOT.
