An Update as of May 2017
So I have a bit of an exciting announcement to make! Over the years, I've gotten a lot of requests for "Custody" to be uploaded to a separate website because reading it here can be difficult on smartphones, tablets, etc. (I've never tried it, but I could see that happening). So in an effort to make the story easier to read and access, "Custody" now has it's own website! Chapters are in the process of being uploaded as well as revamped and revised for grammar and maybe a tad bit of content, no big changes though. While revisions will be happening, my goal right now is just to upload the originals and overtime, I'll go through and heavily review and revise the chapters. The original will always remain here on FanFiction though. :)
Additionally, I've been in the process of moving again and you know what? I found an old binder filled with dozens of notes I had for writing the story. Not sure whether that's exciting or sad technically, BUT I THINK IT'S EXCITING!! XD So in addition to the story, I'll also be uploading articles on references, resources, and some additional thoughts that I had while writing the story. So if you're into that kind of thing or really just want a new way to read "Custody" or follow my work, check it out! May even post some drabbles on there that don't make it up here (you never know). Anyway, hope you enjoy it! Have a lovely day! :)

An Update as of November 2016
Well, it's officially been 10 years since I got an account on this site. Boy, time flies. That being said... I'm still alive, I promise. I've been very busy the past few years and a lot of changes have been going on in my life. I was living overseas in Tokyo for a couple of years (which was awesome!), been working very busy (but rewarding) jobs, and I've been meeting many new people and new friends. In short, a lot has happened, but all good things that I'm very grateful for.
It has kind of been odd and I'm not sure how or why, but I recently have been getting back into DC and Marvel comics (probably since I'm now in the States again where the blood lines for those two universes are), which made me all nostalgic for Teen Titans, Dick Grayson, and all of those wonderful characters. And wouldn't you know, I ended up updating for once with a new story, "Family Picture". (I'm guessing if you're here, that's why, lol).
So what is going on in my little corner of the world? Am I going to be writing more? Well, I've learned not to promise any more stories as life has a way of doing away with even the best of my intentions. I have found myself writing more though, both in fan fiction and otherwise, so you never know. However, I'm still an active cosplayer and I do hope to be posting more. So add me to your followed authors list and stay alert for some pretty cool stuff! You can find more of my updates at the following links:

Anyway, I hope you're all doing well! Enjoy the newest One-Shots!
I'm an avid dreamer, but as life has taught me again and again, acting on dreams has been the most rewarding thing for me as you get to experience so many of the wonders that are out there in the world. I love creative and imaginative stories that cross into depths of our hearts, reminding us of what makes us human and alive. Adventure, romance, angst, friendships, rivalries, trials, hardship, and a push to overcome challenges are all elements of stories that I find to be fascinating to the human soul. I love Graphic Novels, Anime, Manga, Photography, Japanese Culture, Travel and Cosplay. My first love is and always will be Teen Titans, but I know a variety of series from a diversity of entertainment mediums. Normally, in my spare time I enjoy sewing, watching Korean dramas with my roommate, going to concerts, cosplaying, studying Japanese (よろしくね！), blogging, and traveling.
Though I'm not /as/ active on this site anymore, FanFiction.Net will always hold a special place in my heart, so please feel free to follow me. You never know when a surprise might come from me out of here. ;)

FanFiction and Me:
I will write: Angst, Drama, Humor, Romance, Tragedy, Hurt/Comfort, Friendship, Action/Adventure, Ratings 'T' and below, 1st, 3rd person, and switching (POVs)
I will NOT write: Anything overly graphic in nature or profanity.
Reviewing Stories: I tend to review unprompted and when a story really speaks to me these days.
People Reviewing Me: I appreciate reviews, although I ask you that if you do, to not flame me with insults and to give constructive critizism instead. It's hard to make things better if I don't know what's wrong. Compliments are always welcome. It's something that keeps me going as a writer. So if you want more, make sure in your reviews to tell me! :)
For genres, I can go all over the place if I want to, but I usually go dark. I will occasionally write up something in the romance catagory too. (Sue me for loving when two characters get together when you've been dieing to see that forever, lol). Whatever I post though, I'll work hard on to make it worth your time to read (and hopefully review). I also always do my best to finish what I start. I know how aggravating it can be when you read a story on this site and never get an ending, so my goal is to never do that to any of you! Below you'll find more information and insight on my larger, multi-chapter stories as well as a list of my one-shots for you to explore:
Background: In the final episodes of the first season of “Teen Titans” (Apprentice pt. 1 and pt. 2), we never find out exactly what happened or how long Robin was Slade’s apprentice. So this story is just that. It’s told from both Robin’s and Slade’s POV’s as a juxtapose of the two characters’ thoughts as events unfold. It's a bit of everything in terms of genras, but mainly drama and angst. It also went a bit into why the characters act the way they do, mainly because they are telling the story. The story is not something meant to say "these are the only things that happened". There's times that I don't go into much through out the story. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
I guess I wrote this story to show a bunch of different things. One: was to compare the two characters since so many people notice how similar they are and how they are different. Another: was that everyone sort of senses that Slade is looking for a son during the Apprentice episodes. I gave some reasons behind that based loosly off of the comics and others that I came up with from watching the TV show. But then (through Robin's POV), we really see how horrible Slade can really be. It's like the man may want a son, but there's no way he's going to get it because he's so cruel, especially towards the end. Lastily: they're my favorite characters and I always wondered what might have gone on in between those episodes.
Looking back on it... It was my first story and I didn't intend for it to be a multi-chapter story. I remember sitting at the computer, watching the screen intently after posting the first chapter, wondering what people thought of it. When people started to react positively and asking for more, it was all the encouragement I needed to rocket off. That's how my introduction and love for FanFiction began.
Warning Spoiler for Chapters Fifteen and Sixteen: The ending of Chapter Fifteen is very vague. All that happened was that Robin fell into a light sleep. Slade saw him sleeping, picked him up, took Robin to his (Robin's) room and put him to bed. After ruffling Robin's hair, he left the room. Nothing bad happened. Got It? Good.
Chapter Seventeen: I said that you could go to my FanFiction homepage to view a Teen Titans AMV that was closely linked to this chapter. The song helped inspire parts of the chapter, however, unfortunately, the AMV was taken down sometime ago. So I apoligize for no longer having the link. If I ever find it again, I will repost the link.
Could This Go Anywhere?
Background: I originally started writing this after I wrote the first chapter of "What?". I had gotten two chapters done (they hadn't been posted yet), but then "What?" took priority and I didn't really pay much attention to "Could This Go Anywhere?" because I didn't want to switch back and forth between stories. Once I finished "What?" I decided to come back to it. I revised the first two chapters and started posting them, making it my second multi-chapter story. This is a Time Travel story that came about because I wanted to write a Nightwing vs. Slade story, but with the other Titans around. I know that Time Travel complicates every story, but it becomes clearer as the story progresses... sort of... Okay, mostly towards the ending everything is cleared up. That's what an ending does, right? Right.
I suppose the best thing about writing this for me was that I learned how to incorperate multiple characters into a rather long story more complex story (certainly it was a writing precursor that I needed before writing "Custody"). Plus, it was a real action/adventure story and who can't resist writing about that? Thank you to everyone who's read and/or reviewed CTGA?! ;-D
Background: Okay, it's not the most well known couple, but I still adore it. This is basically the origin of Deathstroke, The Terminator, aka Slade Wilson, told from the point of view of his wife, later ex-wife, Adeline Kane. It's mainly a romantic drama, but incorperates elements that deal with their time raising their boys too. It's written in the format of 7 journal entries.
Background: A collection of short stories set during Dick Grayson's time growing up in Haly's Circus. I don't really remember how I got this idea, but I liked it. I guess the idea appealed to me since so often, whenever we read about Richard/Nightwing/Robin, there's not always that innocence that helps bring out the kid in him. So to have a bunch of stories of Richard growing up in Haly's Circus was just the way to bring it out in my opinion. And besides, who doesn't love a cute little kid?
Custody A father-son story.
Background: I guess you could say this is the story where I mix both the Teen Titans TV show and the DC Universe into it. My goal in style for this is to keep it so that you still see the cartoon in your mind, but the elements being added in are derived from the DCU. It's basically a story that is a real mystery and adventure, but with the added drama, such as Robin growing up a bit (no, no Nightwing in this story, sorry) and stepping out of Batman's shadow, and romance (too many to list here; canon will apply for it; No Slash). It will also be split up into Parts as well as Chapters. There will be plenty of elements used or derived from the DCU, but if you're not familiar with the DCU or something in the story, you don't have to worry about it. I'll normally give some sort of a subtle backdrop or explination if it plays a big role. Otherwise, you have nothing to fear because, well, it's just probably a detail.
Custody is finally completed and I can't express my gratitude to and joy in taking the adventure and journey to it's completion with all of you. Looking back on it, there are some things that I would change here and there. There are things that I see in it that would be cause for improvement. But after years of its completion, I sometimes find myself sometimes reading it myself and being captured by the thrill and adventure of it all over again. I hope that doesn't sound cocky or stuck up, but for me, the fact that it can entertain me, the author, it makes me feel like I wrote something I can be proud of.
I also want to thank all of you who have recommended this story and my other works because of it to others. I have gotten links from many people saying "Hey! I saw your story on this list of Titans fan fictions here" or other notes along those lines. It's incredibly humbling to me and gives me such happiness to know that all of you have enjoyed the story as I did. So to those of you just starting, I hope it lives up to all that you've heard and I thank you for checking it out!
