Scrawl Before You Write

This is a portfolio of a few stories I’ve written (and/or am currently writing). Some of these can also be found on my FanFiction.net and Archive of Our Own accounts, but I think it’s always nice to have a single, personal space where I can show them off.

Who am “I”, you ask? Whether you know me as “WillyFourEyes” or “Waltzoid” or some other similar-sounding nickname, I was once a GameFAQs game guide writer in the late 1990’s-early 2000’s who’s been writing original stories and fan fiction on and off for the better part of two decades. This is my “on” period.

I figured that some of them get shipped off to some prison somewhere and aren’t seen againContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 28 is now live!”
  • Ghost Chapter 27 is now live!
    It’s way too tempting for me to make a “Year of the Ochs” joke considering that this weekend marks the start of the Lunar New Year festivities. That said, my publishing of Chapter 27 of Ghost couldn’t have been timed more perfectly, since I’m also on a three-day weekend for Presidents’ Day. (Minor game spoilersContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 27 is now live!”
  • The Ghost turns 1!
    On January 12, 2020, I uploaded the first chapter of The Ghost of Ochs to Archive of Our Own and FanFiction.net. As I explained in my intro post, I wanted to write a story about one of Fire Emblem: Three Houses‘ more mysterious and/or little-spoken-of characters in Monica von Ochs (the real one, not theContinue reading “The Ghost turns 1!”
  • A Christmas bonus
    It took me a lot longer than I wanted to thanks to rewrites and sending out Christmas presents, but I’m glad to say that I’ve finished posting Chapter 25 of The Ghost of Ochs. With this update, Ghost has now surpassed 80,000 total words written, beating my old writing project, Through the Motions, as theContinue reading “A Christmas bonus”
