Considering I remember when Dreamwidth was created and looking at it always gives me a smack in the face of nostalgia, it's almost surreal creating an account so late. However, as I've noticed people I care about coming here to post, I decided I wanted to follow.
It is a pleasure to be here and I look forward to blogging with you. :D
Rated M (for Sexual Content)
Weiss Schnee x Yang Xiao Long (Freezerburn)
Summary: When Raven refuses to help find Ruby, Yang and Weiss find themselves in the middle of the woods and find comfort in each other before they figure out how to proceed.

I DID IT.
I told myself I was gonna’ get something done for Femslash February this year and I managed to get it done. This took too long to write but I’m happy with the final product. XD
It features one of my favorite pairings from Ruby: FreezerBurn.
#This took too long to write. #But it turned out okay so that's all that matters.
Like I'll listen to angry break up music while writing romantic fluff or stuff like that.
Or right now, I'm listening to an ego villain song via heavy metal cover (If you haven't heard Jonathan Young's cover of "Shiny" please listen) while attempting to write some romantic, angsty fic.
It matches a little better, but still.
There's no real end point to this, I'm just amused that heavy metal is what gets my fingers going to write what should be soft romance. XD
Rated T (M on FFnet for being right on the line).
My Hero Academia
Izuku Midoriya x Katsuki Bakugou (BakuDeku) Vampire AU
Summary: Izuku impressed the wrong person and he now must live on with the consequences. But for every benefit to his new life, a curse follows close behind. Izuku finds himself with new choices he never thought he’d need to make.
Worse yet, his time in his old life is counting down and Izuku must decide his future path (and whether or not to take the person he cares about most with him).
Content of Original Tumblr Post, February 4, 2019 at 9:57pm:
I’m not going to rehash my long notes on the fic here, but long story short:
I wanted a new Long Fic to work on now that A Mate’s Worth is done and put a bunch of things into a Random Number Generator to get my prompt.
And I got a Vampire AU. Lol.
So far, so good though and I’m looking forward to working on it. :D
Wish me luck though, because one of the prompts was “Mutual Pining” for BakuDeku and that’ll be a thing for me (I write a lot of one-sided stuff…).
Either way, enjoy the drama! :D
#I love Vampires #so this worked out in my favor #when it really comes down to it. #So much fun.
It probably could have rambled on for a bit longer, but it's nice to say that A Mate's Worth is now finished with a final word count of 98k.
And now there's a void in my life.
Despite having more works in progress than I can count, none of them are filling that particular romance/fluff/drama niche that this fic did, so I'm struggling to come up with something to replace it that I can work on.
("This would be a good time to work on your original writing again," I hear a muse say. But I ignore it. In favor of continuing my bad life decisions and need for comments.)
Adam Taurus/Blake Belladonna (Tauradonna), Character Death the Fic
Summary: Adam said that he would destroy everything that Blake loved and he intends to see that mission through to the end.ki and Izuku find out they’re both exactly what the other has always needed.
Content of Original Tumblr Post, January 22, 2019 at 9:38pm:
This is “Adam Taurus Kills All Your Favs, the Vent fic.”
Catharsis at its finest.
I mean, it’s going to have a plot and I’m taking the prompt seriously, but it is very much a self indulgent “He could have been a better monster” vent fic.
Also, there is no character hate here. None. As a long time Whump fan, I love tormenting my favorites (just look at my BakuDeku fics lol), so everyone will be getting my own brand of tough love. :D
It also is doubling as that “Hazel and Adam are forced to work together for an extended amount of time” fic that I had been itching to write for a while but never did.
Two birds. One stone.
#Tauradonna #Of the one sided variety #very tragic. #The good stuff. #Gotta love that Drama.
My Hero Academia
Katsuki Bakugou x Izuku Midoriya (BakuDeku), Hybrid AU, Dog Katsuki
Summary: While helping out his friend Uraraka with her work, Izuku notices the client’s pet locked in a kennel wearing a muzzle. Izuku’s chest ached with the desire to help and before he knew it, he’d gathered the money and bought the dog from the other man, becoming a pet owner for the first time in his life.
Katsuki, however, wonders how he went from having a bad owner to one that needed a master of his own to keep himself out of trouble.
As time goes by, though, Katsuki and Izuku find out they’re both exactly what the other has always needed.
Content of Original Tumblr Post, January 18, 2019 at 5:32pm:
Two chapters in and I finally remembered to make an announcement for this fic existing. Huzzah. :D
I started another Hybrid AU fic for good old BakuDeku.
But this time there’s not Hare OR Bunny Deku in sight. This time Katsuki gets to be the pet…which is honestly surprising I didn’t start with this because Katsuki in a dog collar is A+ material.
Enjoy the story! :D
#BakuDeku #I like how this one is turning out. #Dog Katsuki is a good boy.
And you know what? I'm really glad I picked it up. I've only played for about two hours, but it won me over with the first adorable cutscene where I laughed at the ridiculous plot. This might be the first farming/cooking life RPG sim where the nature spirits aren't your friend. :P
The plot: Patty, the daughter of a well off restaurant owner, is out for a walk with her brother Gino and her butler. While out, they break a statue and his brother feeds a tiny mouse they find. It turns out that mouse is the God of Poverty and he's now cursed their entire family! Their restaurant goes under, their house gets taken by the bank, and they're out on the streets until the good mayor of town lets them set up shop in an old inn. Patty has to work her way from the ground up with a new restaurant and make sure the God stays happy with offerings so it'll leave her family alone!

My Hero Academia
Mr. Compress x Kurogori, Fluff & Drunken Flirting
Summary: Sako is drunk, Kurogiri is a flirt, and they both have different opinions on Kurogiri’s latest fashion choice.
Content of Original Tumblr Post, January 14, 2019 at 4:52pm:
A little gift for the amazing rothinsel !
Well, I say gift. But she draws me stuff so it’s more of a trade. Lol.
Either way, she wanted some flirting Compress with Kurogiri and I delivered in a cute little short fic. :D
*lies on side* I'm sure I'll find it later. And be in the same position where I can't update it. XD
By the time I really started writing for Transformers, I had an AO3 account, so most of my fics were already over there. But these are another two of the few that were from the “Before AO3″ times. :D
Driving Forwards on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Rated T (M on FFnet)
Transformers G1 (w/IDW influences)
Rumble x Starscream, Humor & Drama
Summary: Rumble has a problem. And that problem's name is Starscream. Doesn't help that Skywarp's jealous or that Soundwave does not approve.
I wrote almost 50k about the rare pair that is Rumble x Starscream and I took that parking very seriously. I need to re-reading this thing because it had a little bit of everything: The Cassettes, The Seeker Trines, Rare Pairs, Megatron, Skyfire, Humor, Drama, Tsundere!Starscream...all of it.
Though the absolute best part was when I crossposted it to AO3, there was already a Rumble/Starscream tag with fics on it. Bless Rare Pairs. XD
The Stalwart on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Transformers G1 (w/IDW influences)
Slow Burn Ultra Magnus x Hot Rod, mostly Slice of Life & Action
Summary: Hot Rod makes an impression on his commanding officer Ultra Magnus. Now if only they could figure each other out and this strange bond between them.
This one was never that popular and that’s fine, however, I am still pretty happy with it. I reread it earlier and I really like the slice of life sections. They’re slow and happy and its’ very different from what I usually write. It was a nice break.
Until Chapter 4 where I did some really cool stuff with Wire Interfacing world building and head canons that I really, really need to use in more Transformers fics.
Rated T (M on FFnet for suggested sexual content)
My Hero Academia
Katsuki Bakugou x OC & Katsuki Bakugou x Izuku Midoriya, Humor & Drama
Summary: Kacchan’s dating a boy without a Quirk and Izuku’s never wanted to punch a good person so badly in his life.
The above fic is my first major, serious project for an OC x a Canon character and I figured this was as good a time as any to share it here.
Why you ask? This:
I was sitting there browsing my reading page and saw The Importance of Self-Inserts by mllemusketeer and it made me think about my own relationship with OCs and how they've changed over the years.
Honestly, I sort of avoided them for a while and when I did include them in my own fics, they were always support characters to push the plot along. They were never main characters, or in the one time where I did venture into making a main character OC it was because I didn't have a canon character equivalent to do what I wanted.**
And then I discovered the Life in Glass Houses series by Blueskyscribe and I adored their TF OCs. To death. I loved the main character ones. I totally supported the shipping of those OC characters x the canon ones & even had a (short lived) RP blog for one of them. It was one of the first times I found original characters that didn't feel like they were shoved in or out of place and it entirely changed my opinion on OC characters.
I dabbled a little bit with OCs after that in Transformers myself (I had a lot of robot babies & I had the Twins Low Gear & High Gear for the Cliffs of Delph series I was RP'ing with Rothinsel), but they were still pretty contained to AU land.
Then the My Hero Academia bug bit and I needed a third person for a Love Triangle AU I wanted to write and BAM. My first shameless OC x Main Character Fic.
And people liked it. I was blown away by how many people were rooting for the OC by the end of the fic and it was the first time that it hit me that feelings toward OCs were changing.
I have a friend who pretty much only reads and writes OC x Canon character fics and pairings for fandoms she's in and it's fun to see how much things has changed.
The stigma is still there, but it's fun to see it slowly drift away.
And it makes me want to do a sequel to the above fic where Daiki (the OC) gets his man back. Lol. I felt bad for breaking up his relationship by the end of it. XD
He's not a self insert, but he deserves some love. :P
**As I was writing all of this it did occur to me there was a point in time where I did have a shameless Self Insert Character (It was a character I designed to be "Liliy" with like teal hair) that I used as myself you can still find around my old DA stuff. Lol. I had a whole story arc with a Digimon partner and a crush on Ken from the second series and all that fun embarrassing stuff. I keep forgetting about it because I keep forgetting about that entire period of my life despite having a website dedicated to it.
I digress. The point is, everyone did it. It's fun. No need to pick on people who do it.
Someone left a comment recently that they never expected to laugh at one of my fics and that kinda stung because I used to write funny things all the time. Lol. Like these two pieces I just finished crossposting to AO3 for my fanfic flashback marathon:
Justice For All on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Saiyuki & Justice League
Gen Fic. Modern Day & Humor
Summary: Genjo Sanzo makes Lex Luthor look like a wimp. And who would dare challenge Secretary Hakkai? Superman. That's who.
I don’t know what I was thinking when I wrote this, but it came out funny and that’s what matters.
And Yes. I do believe Goku from Saiyuki could deck Superman and you can’t argue otherwise. :P
Impromptu Affair on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Rated T (M on FFnet)
Batman (Nolan Films)
The Scarecrow & Joker, The Scarecrow & Two-Face, Humor, Dark humor.
Summary: Good partners are hard to find - but sometimes they just drop in unexpected. And Joker's going to keep hold, whether Scarecrow & Two-Face like it or not.
This was easily the most popular of all my Batman fanfics, and for good reason--it was the longest and the funniest.
Also it made me ship Crane x Dent and let me tell you, it took all of my willpower to keep this thing a Gen Fic.
#That second one is 23 chapters #and got through like two major story arcs. #It was a beast for me at the time. XD
I’m kinda out of it today but the crossposting is continuing slowly. Enjoy three more fics as I go back to the grindstone. I’m almost caught up with the FFnet crossposting and that’s exciting.
Though it is really weird seeing fics that were popular back in the day with Zero Hits. Like not in a narcissistic way, just a reminder that by backdating things I’m ensuring no one on the new site sees it. Lol. I mean, it’s mostly for archival purposes, so it doesn’t really matter, but it’s still like “Aw, poor fic.”
Moving on. Enjoy these:
His relationship with Gat only made things better. This collection is just some nice moments between Gat and Hazel exploring their characters (with a few funny moments to break things up).
It’s a good little set and I still love the old reviews yelling that I cut away before the “good stuff” in that last one. XD
Hakkai and Sanzo buying limiters at a demon stand like an old married couple. Darlings.
And I got to throw in a side of misunderstandings and Jealous Goku in the second chapter, so win win. :D
Either way, I still really love how this little one shot turned out & I hope you enjoy it. :D
#Three down. #And more to go. #I'm so close to catching up #with when I got my AO3 account #and started crossposting normally. XD
I think I’m going to end here for the night and go write something new.
Mostly because I still really enjoy these two fics. Fullmetal Alchemist ‘03 was an amazing series and I love it to this day. I named my first car “Roy Mustang” if you want to know how much I loved it. Lol.
I honestly liked it so much I haven’t read the manga or watched Brotherhood because I knew it was different (and a lot of the stuff the anime changed I liked).
Anyway, I reread both of these fics while I was crossposting and I still love them. Enjoy!
Incendiary Relations on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Fullmetal Alchemist (2003)
Zolf J. Kimblee/Frank Archer, Drama & Humor
Summary: Kimblee discovers the benefits of having a drinking buddy, but what happens when it starts going farther? Kimblee x Archer
I also remember that one day I went back and just marked it complete after realizing the chapter I stopped on was...actually a good stopping spot. It felt good to mark it complete, even if there was a small amount of time I had thought about continuing it.
Still one of my favorite fics I’ve ever written & I’ve actually re-read it a few times over the years (You are allowed to like your own writing, remember that!) since there is...very little Kimblee & Archer. This fic exists because I couldn’t find it to read.
Intemperance on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Rated M (It was T but after re-reading it, it was a little more violent in a couple places than I remembered so I bumped it up.)
Gracia Hughes/Roy Mustang, One-Sided Edward Elric/Roy Mustang, Maes Hughes & Everybody, Slow Burn, Horror
Summary: Stuck in central thanks to Mustang, Edward finds himself working a case of human transmutation gone wrong. The side effects of that transmutation seem to be more than anyone expected, especially when it begins to target Roy Mustang.
Which is what this is. Homunculus Hughes comes back to steal everything the real Maes Hughes had.
I actually had a hard time tagging it. Is this “Greed Hughes” an original character or just Evil Hughes? It’s basically Evil Hughes so I just tagged it with Maes, but I still had to think about it.
Always a fan of possessive characters, I could see myself coming back to this one. There was some really good chemistry with Greed Hughes and Roy in the 5th and 6th chapters that I’d love to revisit (plus, the pairings were slow burn they never got anywhere).
#I wrote Kimblee as such a brat in the first one. #I love it. #But for real #Frank Archer #I loved him so much you do not even know #he was my favorite character in the 03 show. #After Roy.
I can see the light and this project is almost over (and then I can move into phase two: The Drabbles). I would have waited until I had three finished to make this post, but the next fic I’m crossposting is one of my favorites, so it’s going to be the first one on the list. XD
So in the meantime, here’s these two:
The Rouge Who Was Death on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Skeith x Haseo, Haseo x Atoli, Dark Fic
Summary: After years of waiting, Skeith has once again found his Host. And nothing will separate them ever again, whether Haseo wishes for them to be together or not. [Spoilers for Series and Game. Skeith x Haseo, Canon Pairings. Dark.]
I think if I were to tackle this pairing & subject again, it’d be with a total rewrite instead of a continuation.
Daddy Sanzo And Mommy Hakkai on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Rated T (M on FFnet because of Mpreg/Abortion)
Summary: Drinking from the wrong river leaves Sanzo and Hakkai in a rather concerning predicament. It's up to Goku and Gojyo to save the day (if they can get along long enough to do so).
I don’t know what to say about this fic. I pretty much forgot that I wrote it, which is kinda funny considering the mpreg plot.
Either way, two more down.
#The name of that second one haunts me. #I would never name that now. XD #Fun times in old fic land.#I was so much bolder with #my plot lines back in the day. #I say now that I'm writing ABO and death fics. #Lol. XD

The Last two of the night! They are now on AO3 to join the Archive. Enjoy them. XD
Puppy Days on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Summary: [A Dog's Life Sequel] The Sanzo Party faced the ultimate hardships and came out victorious, but now they have to get used to life on the road again but now with an extra mouth to feed!
You get one chapter posted and then never update it again. Lol.
It’s a weird mix of humor and serious topics that blended together into something kinda great? I mostly remember that people loved it & that I had way too much fun with it.
(It also made me ship Light & Matsuda as much as I ship Light & Ryuk and Light & Misa, and who am I kidding--I ship Light with everyone.)
Though my favorite memory of this fic is I updated it after a two year break. Two years passed between chapters nine and ten and I got a ton of reviews after that update.
Heck, I got a review this year on this thing & at least three last year (my favorite marking the 7th Year Anniversary since I last updated lol).
I’ve been tempted to resurrect this thing almost every year.
I might do it yet after I’m done crossposting everything.
Whatever I end up doing, Death Eraser has a spot close to my heart. XD
#Death Note #I'm tagging this one. #I'm curious if there's any old readers out there. XD
I’m still working on crossposting. It’d probably go faster if I wasn’t fixing formatting issues on the old FFnet versions as well. Ha ha ha ha.
Here’s the next three. I’m not sure how much more I’ll get done tonight, but these are up! :D
Watching You on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Gen Fic, L & Ryuk friendship.
Summary: It always starts with a bored shinigami. What's a world class detective to do with a Death Note?
This fic also reminds me that I used to ship Miki & Zed so much. It figures in a fandom this small I’d like a rare pair. I need to watch Kiba again at some point. I really loved the first season but never found time to watch the second. I have all of it on DVD so the only thing stopping me is procrastination. XD
But this fic. After looking it over again I’m amazed I wrote this thing. 3-4k chapters with barely any dialogue. It’s all descriptions and thoughts and it’s...still pretty good.
This was my first time tackling writing characters with disabilities (the plot is that they each are stripped of one of their five senses and have to adapt) and I remember it being a challenge. I’d like to come back to this one at some point if I ever get back into Saiyuki.
Another three down. More to go.
#I'm slowly catching up. #However I'm also getting toward #the grey area where I'd#started crossposting things #without much order to it. #I'm going to have to be careful. XD
Content of Original Tumblr Post, December 29, 2018 at 6:02pm:
The Crossposting Adventure Continues. I’m not done for the night, but I figured I’d go ahead and share what I just finished up! :D
Generator Gawl is one of my all time favorite anime series and it’s sort of criminal I’ve only written one fic for it. I clearly had intentions to, because this fic (since I posted it in 2006 until today) used to be called “Generate” and was a “One-Shot” Collection. That only had one fic (*whisper* Not much of a collection).
I debated just marking it “Complete” and making it a one-shot properly and eventually just did that. It makes me wonder if anyone will notice. XD
Either way, it is a great little bittersweet piece and I still think it’s pretty good.

Pet Shop of Horrors
Count D/Leon Orcot, Humor, Friends to Lovers
Summary: Leon finally finds D in Japan and gets more than he bargined for from the not so mysterious Count D and his latest stalker, Taizu. [End of Series Spoilers]
Pet Shop of Horrors was a long time fav series (*hugs her copies of the manga and my one OVA dvd*) and I *adored* Count D and Leon’s relationship.
If I ever sat down and reread the series, I would probably come back and finish this one, old or not.
Pick It Up Again on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Round Robin, Gen Fic, Humor
Summary: Tag Fic. Shinigami’s Wrath, Nimblnymph, GreyLiliy and Redbrunja. The Saiyuki boys are snowed in and bored, what's a team to do but to resort to telling stories?
This was never finished, but what’s there is still hilarious and I grinned reading the entire fic over again. :D
#That's three down. #And many more to go. #I want to get this done gosh darn it. #There's so much to crosspost and fix. XD
