Lucrecia Marionette

Hey wow! I'm impressed! You stumbled onto my fic page, huh? Well don't worry, I'm not going to bore you with stories about what happened to me when I was five years old and why I've decided to sit down and spend so damned long writing this thing!

I'll be brief and just say that 'I hope you like it'. Simple really.

It won't be to everyone's taste of course, but we're all essentially different and what entertains one person, annoys the hell out of the next. I accept constructive ciritism as well as the next person and in fact, the more helpful it is, the better the mood I'm in! Flaming is a definite no-no. It doesn't reflect on me; it reflects on the person who sent it. I'd have nothing but sympathy (and feelings of extreme violence) towards any sad person who had spent the best part of a day reading something and then deciding that they don't like it. Of course that doesn't mean that people can't say they don't like my fic, but I'm not just talking about mine here. The problem comes in when those individuals then have the nerve to flame to a fic writer (many of whom will work a long, long time trying to get their fics to the best standard they feel they personally can- I'd like to consider myself one of them) in a typically infantile way which does nothing more than destroy confidence and eventually ruin the fic for all those who do enjoy it.

Through the Looking Glass is a serious fic although it does have occasional light moments - courtesy of Cid most of the time! If I had to name one main character then it would be Vincent, but they all make appearances and therefore at caerain moments are equally important. At times there is violence but I tend not to be overlly graphic so it shouldn't be too disturbing/ sick for most readers. I will warn you that although it isn't hentai, yaoi, or anything like that; there are certain views expressed which many may not agree with. I mean, in a fic where one of the main themes is vampirism and general angst and torture, what can you expect...? As the title suggests from the very book it is borrowed from; 'Appearances are deceptive in a world where little makes sense'.'

Ack, so much for not going on too long, huh? Anyway, sorry to put such depressing thoughts on your day, but my fic isn't exactly light-hearted, so we may as well start as we mean to finish.... . ^..~

Final Fantasy VII Fanfiction
Through the Looking Glass
- Five years have passed since the so-called 'Meteor Crisis'. The members of AVALANCHE have rebuilt their lives and integrated themselves as successfully as they can into the workings of 'normal life'. New friendships have been formed, and old flames rekindled but over time and distance, bonds that locked the group together so firmly are slowly breaking apart.

When one of them returns after a long absence with a dark secret however, their troubles begin once more and again the heroes that saved the world once are called upon to do it again. This time though, it is not a single fight they must win.

It is one over themselves, each other and the very world around them.

Stay With Me- My second (or third if you count that *other* one.. ¬_¬) fic. This piece of fiction is not relate to TTLG in any way so I hope you don't get too confused..!

Approximately ten years since Meteor's destruction, life has been both kind and cruel dealing mixed blessings to the members of AVALANCHE, in particular Tifa Lockheart. Running a successful bar in the rapidly expanding town of Kalm her world is shattered when she comes to the conclusion that her long lost love, Cloud Strife, is dead. Needing to find peace of mind, she seeks out the only one she feels could ever understand her turmoil, the ever elusive and secretive Vincent Valentine. Leaving her disintegrating life behind, she travels to Nibelheim only to find that the grass is never greener on the other side... .

This fic will be considerably more mature in both style and plot than my previous fics and be warned, it isn't light! Be prepared for plot twists, death and horrific revelations from Beauty and the Beast, Tifa and Vincent as they undertake a quest which will destroy, if not their bodies then their hearts and souls as beliefs are destroyed and revelations which could shape the very world are uncovered.
