Boilerplate warning for my stories: 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 (updated July 2017):

T = References to sexuality, brief onscreen violence, and/or sensitive topics.

M = Onscreen sex, extended onscreen violence, and/or extended treatment of sensitive topics.
