Author has written 31 stories for Fushigi Yuugi, Digimon, Ouran High School Host Club, Fire Emblem, Tales of the Abyss, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Hakuōki/薄桜鬼, and Gundam Seed.

07.29.14 - Redemption's Cross is another part of abyss, although it started taking on a life of its own. It's a lot more fun to write an angsting teenager with all the issues that Athrun has than I thought. Plus, a lot of stories either don't really delve into the 'why did he go back?' question and just play along with the ending presented, or go another route with post-canon, like returning to PLANT and being someone big there (which, up until GSD SE4, was wide open for interpretation). Personally, although canon was probably done that way to throw around phantoms of the asucaga ship, I do think it's a more plausible course of action for Athrun, at least in the interim.

07.25.14 - I had identity written at around the same time as vigil and was holding off on putting it up, but I couldn't figure out how to fix the parts I wanted, so I gave up and just put it as is. Also part of abyss. Cookies if you know what scenes these lines come from, I guess.

07.21.14 - It's been a very long time since I wrote for Gundam SEED, but while reflecting on it and my favourite video game (Tales of the Abyss), I started wrapping some ideas around quotations that stuck in my head from the game. I'll lump them all eventually into what I call my abyss collection, but my first one is vigil.

01.06.14 - I don't think I've ever dumped anything onto FFN quite as recklessly as I just did... but Saitou is sometimes too silly to pass up.


A university student who pops in every so often to write, for more of a personal exercise than anything. I write when it comes, and it comes often in short but furious spurts of inspiration; it's been a long time since I've had the commitment to write anything longer than one-shots, unfortunately.

You can find me as gailardia @ tumblr.

Current Focus:

Music: EXO

Asian pop stars? Guilty as charged.

Game: Tomodachi Life / Persona 3 / Tales of Symphonia

I've basically been game-hopping, so my head is all over the place.

Current Style: Nothing in particular is tickling my fancy. Short scenes seem to be the it thing for my writing, I guess.

vigil - I know about the nightmares that still wake you in the middle of the night.
identity - I didn't say that because you were a princess. Your birth doesn't matter. Just do what you can.
Redemption's Cross - But that's not how things are. Even if I tried to make up for it, I'd never be able to. So I'm going to start with what I can do.
