Well, I am currently a graduate student of astronomy.  I loved to write, but don't do it often enough. Thankfully I never suffered from the anti-genre-fiction creative writing teachers in school that so many of my friends have -- my teachers didn't care if I wrote about space aliens/elves/etc. as long as it was a character-driven story about said aliens/elves/etc. Most of my fiction will be based off of my science fantasy webcomic, or stuff from roleplaying characters. I like writing, drawing, anime, manga, comic books, science fiction, fantasy, crochet, conlanging, astronomy Favourite movies Babylon 5, Firefly, Avatar: the Last Airbender, Vision of Escaflowne, Fullmetal Alchemist, Slayers Favourite books the Miles Vorkosigan series and other Lois McMasters Bujold books, the Dresden Files, Discworld, the Kin of the Stars series, the Deed of Paksenarron

The Candied Light of Fall

As the autumn winds down, a woman of winter and a man of summer make plans for the coming cold. Written for the theme "Love is a fragile word" for 31days_exchange@LJ. Title and epigraph from the song "Snow Queen Dreams" by Seanan McGuire, available on the album Wicked Girls.

Brother Mine

The murder of a departed brother and a strange mage found at the scene of the crime. But who is more of a mystery to Phoebus -- the man who shared his blood, or his fellow mage?


Things are not as they seem when priestess visits a criminal. A bit of a ficlet in preparation for NaNoWriMo '05.
