Author has written 3 stories for Ronin Warriors.

Hello, friends! My name is Melissa; welcome to my little writing nook, where I write primarily Ronin Warriors fiction. I've loved the anime since I was in middle school, and although the fandom is tiny, it is fierce, and I've met some amazing people through it.

Random facts: I turn 30 this year. I live near Chicago. I just graduated with a B.A. in English this May. I write original fiction, but nothing that's been published beyond some short stories. Other fandoms I love, but will probably never write in: BTVS, Animorphs, Sailor Moon, The Dark Tower Series, Pushing Daisies. Absolute favorite film: The Fall (don't even get me started).

You can also find me on:

Tumblr

Stories:

Seaside: Requested by and written for Ghost of the Dawn, who is incredible. Focuses on Cye and Robyn, her fantastic OC. This woman keeps me writing RW, and I adore her for it. There is a playlist for Seaside, and it is located here on 8tracks. The lyrics that are peppered throughout the story are lyrics from these songs.

Sol: Ronin Warriors sci-fi AU. I really love sci-fi films, and one of my favorite sci-fi films is Sunshine. This plot bunny took hold when I realized that a number of the characters in Sunshine have personality quirks/roles that resemble some of the Ronins, so I thought: What if the Ronins were tasked with this enormous responsibility? Essentially Ronins in Space (!), borrowing heavily from the plot and concept behind Sunshine (so, not a crossover, but rather an insertion). This is going to be a long one, ladies and gents. Buckle in for the ride!

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible." - T.E. Lawrence
