A Complete Listing of my Stories

Now is a listing of what I've written. Not all of this is work or family friendly, but nearly all the stories have a rating next to them so you know what to expect.



Nonfiction
Torrie, a Slate editor asked me one day if I was the Liralen that Jordan was based off of, and I replied yes.
The Real Real Genius is what came out of that lucky meeting. And, thank you, David, for telling her I was a good writer.

My Fan Fiction
I have a yaoi leaning in fanfic. Just so you're warned. But it's just a leaning, so there's lots of other stuff, too.

These are my most popular stories via fanfiction.net and Archive Of Our Own
-- Samurai Champloo: Combined Edge Strange Edge -- R for violence and bad language and a kiss Jin/Mugen -- Alone after the series, Jin goes to pray for his dead at a shrine while finishing the reforging of his sword.
-- Bleach: Twin Souls -- Academy Ukitake and Kyouraku multi-chapter mostly PG-13 fic with its own page and links to fanart! Emphasis is on how they developed into the friends they are and what the circumstances are for attaining shikai. Plot and sword fight heavy, very smut-light. This is now complete!! Yay!
-- Bleach: Winter War -- A very dark AU co-write with incandescens and sophiap where the Gotei 13 did very badly against Aizen's forces and are trying to survive. "Nothing is sacred and no one is safe." Rated R mostly for character death, swearing and the like, nothing explicit.
-- Downed*Angel: Some Things Never Change
-- Bleach: Ghosts -- PG-13 Ishida goes to get a signature from his dad.

All of my springkink prompts can be found on the comm itself right here.

Multi-chapter stuff.
These cover the longer series that I'm writing in, and I've pulled these pieces out of the general mish-mash of fanfic below. Many of these have indexes that you can put an alert on if you want to know when they're updated.
-- Getaway -- An explicit fic slashing an AU Shuuhei and Urahara, written with demented_dee in her AU world. After having known each other as friends for years, both the men get set up for really horrible blind dates. They escape the bad dates and Kisuke invites Shuuhei out for a weekend getaway at the Kuchiki hunting lodge.
-- Seasons of Tea -- A Traditional Tea with Saiyuki's Hakkai/Tenpou and Bleach's Byakuya as prompted by 2metaldog and mysocalledhell and it's mostly G or PG but the last chapter turned NC-17.

OTHER FANDOMS

Downed*Angel
Downed*Angel is a creation by gogoangelgunboy that has its own community: biscuit_tin. I encourage people to check it out and I did one fic for... hm... I'd like to say it was for him, but it was really for his characters and for the Crescent City, as after I swallowed down all of his fic in one or two days, they grabbed me and I had to write Some Things Never Change. The story is about Immer and Tommy, who are assassins that clear the feng shui, hired by the Goddess of Mercy, going to New Orleans for a job. If there's enough people that think it ought to be continued, I may well do so. And just to be sure it's on my journal incase the other ever disappears, I've copied it here.

And now I've also done Under the Boardwalk -- R for language and violence -- Immer and Tommy do a job, clearing the flow of fengshui in Atlantic City.

Ghost in the Machine was requested by Gabe as well and has my character, William, in it. R for violence and language. The two hitmen decide to hit a target together.

Working Vacation -- PG-13 for a gunfight. Murphy and Kincaid take a working vacation. Harry sends along an unexpected gift.

KH2
Burning for You -- PG-13 boy kiss Axel follows Roxas for no reason he can fathom.
Follow Your Heart -- PG-13 but warning for a boy kiss. My Second Fic ever. Written because it always bothered me that Riku couldn't even walk and then suddenly, nearly the next minute, he's cutting through the waves like his old self. Lady Az actually did a full-page comic of the closing lines of this fic!! Check it out, it's amazing to me...

Saiyuki
-- Not Forgotten -- G -- Goku wanders away from the camp site and Gojyo follows to find what's up. The whole Ikkō soon gets involved.
-- Fighting the Odds -- PG for fights -- (Crossover) For 2metaldog, prompt Ulquiorra and Sanzo and a card game gone wrong -- Sanzo finds a Hungry Ghost out in the forest and has to figure out what to do with him.
-- Seasons of Tea -- A Traditional Tea with Saiyuki's Hakkai/Tenpou and Bleach's Byakuya as prompted by 2metaldog and mysocalledhell. Mostly G, but the last chapter is NC-17.

-- Laughing In the Rain -- R Sanzo/Hakkai -- Hakkai sees someone gruesomely murdered and breaks. Sanzo has to clean up the resulting mess, as usual. For mysocalledhell.

-- Broken Convictions -- PG Fai/Sakura springkink "caresses over clothing -- something must be broken because it's never felt like this before". Sakura sacrifices her body for a price for Yuukio, and also manages to shatter some of Fai's convictions on how things must turn out.

Zombie Powder
A Good Idea -- PG-13 Gamma/Smith "Partners - Actually, that's quite a good idea." They do have some good ideas, but get into trouble like usual. For springkink.

Fan fic is a fun place to start, but if you want to get published eventually, original stuff is the way to go... Sorry, I don't know when you first posted this list. Are you still working on your Thorn and Ash stories?

Re: Interesting list
Thanks... yeah, I totally agree. I just posted the list this morning... *laughter* I kind of gave up on the Thorn and Ash for the last few months. I know I'll get back to it, but I needed to work through some planning with it, first. I like where it started; but there's at least two or three levels of what's going on in their worlds I needed to work through before I could get the next few steps in and have them feel right.
*laughs* I was so clueless. I've friended you. *grin* Thank you for helping a newbie out!

(This is Maya, btw)

I fear I might start to get repetitive if I commented on each fic individually, so I'm combining comments on several fics here. As always, I love your writing, even when I either don't like or don't understand what is going on in the fic. Actually, I think I'm even more aware of how much I like your style in these cases! Nevertheless, I'm pleased to report that I don't dislike any of the eight I've read so far.

In fact, two--"Fighting the Odds" and "Catch a Flying Star"--I adored. "Fighting the Odds" was such a romp; I would be insanely thrilled to see more crossovers in this timeline/AU 'verse. The opening fight was awesome, and the binding was hot and heavy in ways that had little to do with sex and yet quite a bit to do with scene. I loved the blend of crack comedy (e.g. Ulquiorra during the poker game) and serious emotion (Sanzo-tachi realizing just what was of Ulquiorra's nature was being repressed once the limiters came off), and I loved that you pulled it off without a feeling of mood whiplash. Perhaps best of all were the parts that blended all of the above, for example Ulquiorra's trying to figure out the foursome's power relations and where he fit into them: simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, and altogether amazing.

"Catch a Flying Star" was also a treat, albeit in different ways. I loved it from Renji's palpable discomfort/relief at Byakuya's conditional approval through Rukia and Renji's intertwining reiatsues at dawn, and several points in between (food handouts, Renji watching Rukia enjoy the fruit--and the aftermath of that moment, the punch!, Rukia's demands during sex, etc.). I was delighted by the dance bewteen Renji's hesitation and wanting to be good enough and Rukia's impatience and wanting to simply be accepted as she was, and I was thrilled both by the fact that she got her way and by her agressiveness in making sure that Renji understood the deal.

As I mentioned elsewhere, some of your Bleach fic makes me realize I need to know more about Bleach canon in order to fully understand/appreciate it. Specifically, "Babysitting," "Not Really Lies," and "An Answer of Sorts" fall into this category, especially the latter two. There were moments I liked in each of these fics--the evident care Soi Fong and Yoruichi have for each other, the idea that Urahara not just shouldn't doubt himself but actually had no right to, the image of either Yoruichi or Renji babysitting impressionable teenage girls--but overall they left me more confused than anything else. I plan to go back to them eventually, and I hope I'll have absorbed enough to give better feedback on them by that time.

Re: Long comment is long 1/2
I really love your comments. It's intriguing as I can see that you really are looking at all this from a writer's perspective, in how the relationships work, how the writing presents them and all that.

I'm very, very glad you enjoyed "Catch a Flying Star", as it was one of my first fics that I was really rather proud of. Rukia's always struck me as being very strong.

Yes. "An Answer of Sorts" relies very heavily on canon and how Yoruichi and Soi Fong meet up and their past together. Urahara is one of those puzzle boxes I enjoy returning to... in some ways, they say that Naruto really could have been named "Kakashi" as easily, so maybe Bleach could have been Urahara's story as much as Ichigo's. But Ichigo is the active one in Bleach... and Kakashi is no shy or fading flower. So there are differences. Still... my fascination in Urahara probably plays out in some ways in Getaway... *laughs*

(continued from last comment, which I'm not sure went through as I don't remember doing the captcha for it--if you didn't get it let me know and I'll repost.)


My responses to the other three works I've read so far ("Watched For and Seen," "Living in This Moment," and "For Myself") fall in between the two categories above. For new-to-the-fandom-me, each of these fics almost stands on its own. In "For Myself," I'm sure I failed to appreciate most of Orihime and Ulquiorra's interaction, mostly because this is my first encounter with Orihime. However Ulquiorra's need for clear rules and boundaries--in this case something approaching consensuality, or at the very least the lack of Orihime's interdiction--shone through in stark relief. It was easy to connect his characterization here to how you wrote him in the Saiyuki crossover, and that really made the fic for me. Similarly, the bit about playing tag made "Living in This Moment" for me. During most of the rest I was couldn't really get the pairing, possibly because you've written Ukitake so well with Shunsui on the one hand and with pre-meditated, thoroughly negotiated encounters on the other. However when tag came up I had a little 'aha' moment and could finally see him and Yoruichi together. (Although I must confess that I thoroughly enjoyed her tempering of her cat-nature with the pawprints.) As for "Watched For and Seen," I fear I must re-read it a couple of times before giving a more thorough comment on it; I'll post directly to the fic once I figure out more of how I'm reacting to it. (Other than generally favorably, orz.)

Finally, I blame/credit you for/with the fact that I'm now a little bit in love with Ulquiorra. He's not *fun* the way Grimmjow or Urahara (or even Hana-chan) are, but I think he's now my new favorite Bleach character.


Re: Long comment is long 2/2
With "Watched For and Seen" you should look at the specific chapter in the Bleach Manga that is called out. It is actually a retelling of a canon scene... one of my very few.... and one that actually got me rec'ed in a few places because of how it was done. *laughs*

Ulquiorra is a fascinating creature. And I think r0ck3tsc13nt1sts's love for him really kind of fueled my liking of him. *laughs* I hated how he was treated in the end in Canon, but... so it is.
