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.

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”

  • The Ghost of Ochs Chapter 23 is live!
    Chapter 23 is up! Remember that “secret thing” Bernadetta was working on for Linhardt earlier? Now she gets to give it to him for a birthday present. The “Bernie-bear” reference was too easy to make, so I went for it. I had a discussion with a longtime friend on Discord (who’s a much bigger FireContinue reading “The Ghost of Ochs Chapter 23 is live!”
