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 Chapter 34 is live!
    In Chapter 34, Monica hasn’t fully forgotten about the bandit woman who attacked her during her first month back at the academy. Even though she hasn’t heard anything from Raine since then, she makes a point to try to dig into her background to figure out what she was doing in Imperial territory in theContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 34 is live!”
  • Ghost Chapter 33 is live!
    We’re starting off Chapter 33 on a somewhat low-key note, as all of the students are returning to the monastery after going on adventures. I wanted to put the scene in with Byleth talking to the house leaders to show that she was curious about what the other houses were doing while she, Edelgard, andContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 33 is live!”
  • Ghost Chapter 32 is live!
    With the release of Chapter 32 of The Ghost of Ochs, our second story arc is complete. Monica and company have fended off an attack on Remire Village, with one of the perpetrators being her arch-enemy, Kronya. The defense mission was a success, but not without cost – many villagers are dead, and Kronya andContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 32 is live!”
  • Ghost Chapter 31 is live!
    Two months? It’s really been two months between the publication of Chapter 30 and Chapter 31? I really am slipping! I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later, especially with this chapter where I was trying to juggle a couple of different viewpoints at once (the first wave of the invasion, then Edelgard’sContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 31 is live!”
  • Ghost Chapter 30 is live!
    While the AO3 and FanFiction.net versions of this story will register this as Chapter 31 (because I don’t include Monica’s little nightmare interlude in the chapter numbering), “Lying in Wait” is actually Chapter 30. Now that I’ve reached the 100,000-word milestone on this fic, I also went and did something that I’d meant to doContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 30 is live!”
