I'm glad you still like it all these years later :) I wrote Boyd and his family, Lou, all of the JG folks, about half the Janus unit and level 10 people, and a smattering of other random characters. Sonny wrote Hsin as his main character and then a bunch of other people :)(less)

The Edge of Reason (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Oct 18, 2014 06:04PM
Description: I found this story on my hard drive and have no idea what inspired me, but perhaps it was Olympus by Aki. I think I wrote this 6/17/2013.
the Julian Files (Drama)
2 chapters   —   updated Mar 28, 2014 01:55PM
Description: A series set in the past from In the Company of Shadows. Julian 'JJ' Jones was a private investigator and a good friend of Cedrick Beaulieu. He had his finger on the pulse in Lexington, PA, but didn't realize just how involved he would become. This series is set in the past and features cameos from Cedrick, Vivienne, and even little 5-year-old Boyd Beaulieu, along with other ICoS characters. IMPORTANT: Contains spoilers for ICoS, do not read until you've finished Fade!

4 chapters   —   updated Sep 21, 2013 07:39AM
Description: These are a series of short, unconnected oneshots, drabbles, and possibly assorted unfinished shorts from writing group. I'm sharing them mostly so they don't die a sad, lonely death on my hard drive, and secondarily so there is more reading material on the internet for the terminally bored.
unconnected shorts (Select)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 30, 2013 10:17PM
Description: These are a series of unconnected works in progress I started and might continue in the future. Shared here for similar reasons as the writing group shorts, and in case anyone wants more of something they see.
Never Odd or Even (Gay & Lesbian)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 07, 2013 01:51PM

“If there was a hell beyond what he knew, he would welcome it. He had no reason not to.

After all, a life without living was simply a death without dying. What more was there to fear or hate but life, endless life, with no respite?”
Ais, Evenfall

“So, I'm just going to tell you how it is for me,' Boyd continued frankly. His gaze was intense and sincere as he didn't look away from Sin's eyes. 'I love you more than I've ever loved anyone. I think about you all the time. It's been hell trying to keep myself away - every time you're close I just want to touch you. I would do anything for you. And if I could have anything in the world right now, I would be in a relationship with you.”
Ais, The Interludes

Lee! I'm so sorry! Somehow I didn't see this until now.

I AM thinking of writing a f/f story... I haven't figured out exactly what I want to write yet. I have a few ideas I've been kicking around. I guess it will amount to whatever ends up sounding most interesting to me.

PS: if you get a notification twice it's because I suck at GR and I first just posted my reply, then wasn't sure if you'd see said reply, and deleted that so I could reply off your comment in the hopes it would be more likely it might make its way back to you.

Just wanna know when will Fade be updated again. Wanna know what will happen next. This series is so amazing. Can't wait."


Hi! Thank you for being awesome and reading our story!

I'm not sure when it will next update yet -- what we've been doing is writing the chapters and editing them between updates so a lot of it depends on how often our schedules intersect and how fast we can write :) But we're trying to make it so there aren't super long waits in between updates.

You should probably expect a couple of weeks at least though, to be honest, based on how things have been going lately.
