Author has written 18 stories for General, General, Fantasy, Young Adult, Life, and Love.

My inspiration draw mostly from my strange dreams though...they provide a lot of basis for the scenarios in my stories. I've been writing since forever, however, English not being my native language, my skills may not be as good.

If you like my stuff, please R/R! :)

Update:

19 June: I've finally updated my story from Nanowrimo 2011"Storyteller"!


Current Projects:

Storyteller / How to read tea leaves: Imprisoned by the royal family in the Temple of Bells since young, Asha knew nothing but fortune-telling tea leaves in a cup. When an earthquake happened, Asha ran away to find her family, guided only by the memory of a scent.

Asha is a fortune-teller of sorts. In the kingdom, she is the only commoner who holds as much prestige as one from a noble family. Though satisfied with her life, she is not quite happy, and she figures that it's because the Temple of Bells is not her real home. When an earthquake happens, she takes the opportunity to run away amidst the chaos and is taken up by a mysterious young man who seems to be on a journey of his own too.

However, the road away from the comfort zone is not what she expects, and she has to not only learn to persist to reach her goal, but also to resist running away from it.

Rated T because of possible nudity, cheating, lying, blood and what not.

Song of Sea: Imagine the Little Mermaid, except, not quite Little, and not Mermaid at all. Now imagine seeing it on the day your father died. And on the day where your livelihood is being turned upside down...

Set in the exotic isles of Malaya a thousand year past, when there were spirits and people who believed in them. A young girl, orphaned by the sea continues her father's spice trade. It has been half a century since the White Men came, hungry for the goods that seduces them so. Yet the sea routes remain firmly closed to those who care little for the ways of the island people. The uneasy balance is about to be tipped...

Rated T because I don't know what else to rate it.

Die With Me: 2 A fantasy based on a role-playing section of now-defunct digitalrpg.com. This story was crafted by many people at the forums, and I'm merely stitching it all up and adding some extras in it. The Dreams' main goal of saving the world is shakened when each of them starts to pursue their own personal interest. Is the world doomed?

Rated M for violence, gross adjectives and swearing. Also, nudity with fur/scales etc and promiscuity (probably).

Chronicle of Adi: The setting is the same world as Moving Heaven and Earth, however the protagonist is a male mage, Adi, who is a dreamer of sorts, and self-proclaimed poet. In this story, he reveals the world and kingdom of Gaia.

This is something random which I wrote because I was stuck at a place I'd rather not be in. I've been wanting to write a short-chaptered story in the style of Japanese keitai novels. I've been watching too many movie remakes, I think. There won't be any romance in it. Probably.

Rated T because I don't know what else to rate it.

White Chrysanthemum: This is my baby. First written when I was 14 or 16?, and currently being vetted and rewritten. The story revolves around the end of a prolonged war for the throne, between two families - Schlusig and Luchsieria. Schlusig is wiped out by the Luchsieria through "dishonourable methods", leaving a single survivor, Averisa Schlusig, who tries to plot vengeance.

Trivia: When I was writing this story one night, I was 'visited' by 'something'. It's up to you to believe or not believe, but this is what happened. I was typing one of the chapters somewhere in the middle of the story when there was a breeze and a strong scent that smelled of shower gel rose. I thought nothing of it except for silently wondering who would bath at that time of the night (around 10pm) and totally forgetting that the room was nowhere near a bathroom. really. Then out of a corner of my eye, I saw something whitish behind me from the reflection of the bookcase glass. I ignored it, and eventually it disappeared.

Rated M for gore, violence, excessive swearing, inciting hate and discrimination, implying how babies are made and perhaps some illicit scenes (perhaps, depends on whether I add it after I edit)


Completed Projects:

Princess Camellia: Camellia has always lived a sheltered life, but that quickly came to an end, when a sorcerer attacks the kingdom, leaving her as the sole survivor. A prelude to White Chrysanthemum, the story revolves around Averisa's (White Chrysanthemum) ancestor, and marks the beginning of many wars to come. For now, it is simply, Camellia's story.

Princess Camellia was written back in 2000. At that time, I was experimenting with adjectives as opposed to complex storyline, so expect a different feel from any other stories hosted here.

Rated T for fighting scenes, some violence and gross stuff. And loads of crying over dead people.

Sleep A short story based off a dream I had, about a post-bio attack. If falling asleep meant dying, what would the main character do?

Rated T for morbidness and death.

The Other Prince: A story revolving a first-view telling of a forgotten prince who observes first hand, the events leading up to the waking of Sleeping Beauty. It follows Perrault's original casting, with the prince who woke sleeping beauty as half-ogre (actually Perrault just watered down some soft-pornish, violent story and made it into fairytale. You can wiki/google it up.) and sticks at that fact. I'd wanted to give some details to the prince's background and how, some things got so exaggerated that they became myths and legends (or in this case, fairytale). The story also attempts to piece together random and everchanging facts of the sleeping beauty.

Moving Heaven and Earth: Written and completed in 1999. This very short story revolves around a girl who keeps dreaming of drowning. If you're looking for a story with grand plot like The Other Prince, you might be disappointed.

Rated T for "God", drowning and reincarnations...or sort of.

Die With Me: 1 Blood Arc : A fantasy based on a role-playing section of now-defunct digitalrpg.com. This story was crafted by many people at the forums, and I'm merely stitching it all up and adding some extras in it. It revolves around a bunch of people running around trying to save the world from vampires and crazy necromancer (really, there's only necromancer). Involved in the war are dragon people, fox demon goddess, thieves, zombies, dead bodies and murdered calefares. Oh, don't forget humans.

Rated T for fighting scenes, some violence, gross stuff and mild swearing. And oh, some nudity with fur/scales etc.
