Boilerplate warning for my stories (speculative fiction and contemporary fiction): In many of my stories, the characters must undergo hardship and sometimes transformation before they are able to struggle their way out of the darkness that they find themselves in. Some of the stories deal with the topics of abuse (toward adults or children), death, or voluntary submission. All of the stories feature love or respect, though sometimes it takes a while to get there.

The AO3 rating system, as applied to my stories:

G = No onscreen violence, sex, or profanity.

T = These stories contain no onscreen sex, and most violence is offscreen or nongraphic. However, the stories may contain brief sexual nudity (textual), brief graphic violence, or occasional fantasy-world profanity. Particular stories may address mature topics.

M = These stories may contain onscreen sex, onscreen severe violence, or profanity. However, the majority of scenes in these stories do not contain sex, violence, or profanity. Particular stories may address mature topics.

E = These stories are centered on sex or on a violent incident.
