Author has written 2 stories for Song of the Lioness.

Purple tyrants: In allusion to purple, the imperial colour. Purple deeds, bloody deeds from Thomas Middleton's The Second Maiden's Tragedy, 1611. - Albert Hyamson's Dictionary of English Phrases, 1922 (Jeffrey Kackirk's Forgotten English)

The term is also used in the William Blake poem "The Grey Monk":
"The hand of Vengeance found the bed
To which the Purple Tyrant fled;
The iron hand crush'd the Tyrant's head
And became a Tyrant in his stead."

(The funny thing about this pen name is that I don't like actually like the color purple that much, just the phrase.)

Hello gentle readers!

I'm a college student pursuing a degree English and Psychology. Most of my time outside of school goes into my horse (who I will gladly gush about if you ask), fencing, being president of my school's Writers' Club and work. I'm an avid reader, and my parents are concerned that the weight of my personal library will collapse through the floor of my room. I try to write as often as possible - both fanfiction and original prose and poetry, though I don't publish my original work online because of the technicalities of publishing rights.

I've been involved in several fandoms (Buffy, Harry Potter, Tamora Pierce, and Lord of the Rings among others) over the years and ship femmeslash, slash, and het (generally in that order) depending on the different characters and pairings. I've recently returned to fanfiction.net after a rather long hiatus, because I've been more involved in fandom over on LJ. The link in my profile is to my fandom LJ, so you can expect fic, rambles and possibly art. Go check it out.

At the moment all my fic is for Tamora Pierce. My current project is "Pretty Mots Who Know What They're Doing" (from a line on 104 of Terrier) a collection of drabbles about Kora and Aniki based on prompts from the LJ community tammy_drabbles. There is far too little written about these two in fandom and I want to change that. The drabbles are mainly femmeslash; you have been warned, so don't hassle me about two girls kissing. I'm currently seeking a beta, so get in touch with me if you're interested.

I think you're probably sick of hearing about me babble on about myself, so shoo, read some fic!

Hello, Beastie by Strapless reviews
Miri found him fascinating. Evin thought he was a Copper Islander. No one knew who he was, where he came from, or what he was doing here. A Tortall x PotC crossover and certifiable crackfic.
