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.

  • Ghost Interlude 3 is up!
    Today’s addition is a short interlude in the aftermath of the battle against the Death Knight. This is probably where the third story arc, “Deep Dive”, is going to end. Monica’s learned some new information on the bandit woman who was involved in her kidnapping, and Byleth learned what lies underneath Garreg Mach, as wellContinue reading “Ghost Interlude 3 is up!”
  • Ghost Chapter 43 is up!
    First things first…I’ve decided to close the “Lady Monica’s Dominion” server. I hoped it would help spur further discussion of The Ghost of Ochs, but it didn’t turn out that way. Such is life, I guess. The good news is that I got to finish Chapter 43 of the story, and I’m satisfied with itContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 43 is up!”
  • Ghost Chapter 42 is up!
    It’s been too long since I last updated The Ghost of Ochs – almost four months, in fact – so what better way to break out of my Three Hopes-coupled-with-writer’s-block-induced hiatus with a new chapter? This was another one of those instances when I debated whether or not to continue the chapter from its publishedContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 42 is up!”
  • Ghost Chapter 41 is up!
    We’re now on Chapter 41 of The Ghost of Ochs! I didn’t mean for this one to come out two months after Chapter 40, but when Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes comes calling, I’m compelled to answer. Not much more to say today, except go read it!

  • Ghost Chapter 40 is up + Three Hopes demo thoughts
    (The following post contains spoilers for Fire Emblem: Three Houses and the first few chapters of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes.) About two-and-a-half years ago, I started writing The Ghost of Ochs with the intent of giving Monica, an NPC from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, her own backstory and personality, expecting the sparse information aboutContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 40 is up + Three Hopes demo thoughts”
