Author has written 4 stories for Final Fantasy VII, and Dragon Age.

UPDATED 09/21/11

Hey, you clicked the link to this profile, might as well check out what's in it. I realize it's slim pickings, and I apologize for not being more proliferous as I would like.

It's easier for me to draw stuff instead, since I can do that during down time and requires little planning or complex thought. I apologize to anyone following the active stories. I am writing a paragraph here and there whenever I get the spark, though; it's just going to be a while yet.

Obsession is a Purpose NOTICE: This story is still active, I know it's been a while, but I'm still writing for it, just very slowly. I've gotten the whole story outlined, I'm just working out the kinks of each chapter, and trying to get some writing down for it. I'm really happy with the plot I've come up with, and I hope when I finally make it out of this slump you will like it too.

FFnet stories with fanart at my deviantart account:

lotusflwr's The Journal of Marian Hawke

motchi's Forfeits

thelittletree's Illuminating the Dark

my own Something Borrowed

my own Work in Progress that never materialized beyond a dusty outline

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Motchi, Bleuwyn, and Darknightdestiny up front for all their kind words, and input with Something Borrowed. These ladies are absolutely awesome, they take their writing seriously and really try their best to help out when asked. If you haven't already, please check their stuff out, it's some of the best in the fandom. You can find their works through my Favorites link (hmm... I realize a lot of their stories have been taken down, it's too bad that the drama kiddies pushed that far, they really are amazing writers)

So as you can see, I have been mired in Final Fantasy VII fandom for years, and as a result, the majority of my work (of which you only get to see a few here) is dedicated to that fandom. Lately, though, I've been introduced to the Dragon Age game series, and predictably, Fenris caught my fancy... damn it!

If you have any questions or comments you need answered, the best way is probably to drop me a line on Twitter (@Nine_Shadows), since I'm a lazy bastard and I would use every spare second to sleep if I could. Twitter just makes it easier to stay in sort-of-touch without having to go anywhere (also, the hospital still hasn't blocked it :P)

P.S. GH CAN SUCK IT! DIE, ABC DAYTIME, DIE!
