[ - About - ]

    Heyo! This username is mad old, but I'm too sentimental to change it. Feel free to call me Sphinx, Sphinxy, Raicho, Rai, or some other random nickname you come up with (no, seriously, there's folks who call me Snufflekins because of that now—and I'm so here for it 😂)


[ - Ye Olde Updates - ]

    Update as of December 18, 2019
    Yes, hi, hello, is thing still on? *taps mic*

    It's been a long time since I've felt inclined to update this ol' profile. I think my last check-in was a year ago when I posted a few tiny one-shots. And I'll be honest: I suspect this quick profile update is born out of nostalgia more than anything else. I am still in the fandom and fanworks game even 13yrs after joining this site (and holy crap, that's a big number of years), but I primarily post on AO3 these days, and then occasionally cross-post certain stories here.

    The Luna Revamp has me sittin' on some anticipation right now. I'm hoping that might revitalize the site and maybe create an influx of new readers and authors; I can't tell you how much I miss the heyday of this site, when there was a constant stream of stories to read and people to meet.

    For now, as far as my status on Luna goes, I'm just being patient. I would never want to take down these old stories, as I enjoy looking back on them (even when they hit me with the cringe lmao) and charting where I was as a writer and a person based on the year I was writing. My writing style and my preferences have very much changed since the last time I was truly active and I think I also need to work out where I settle in fandom in general. I also graduated from Uni back in August, so I have much more time to write now that I've worked out where I am working and living.

    Anyhow, that's my tiny update before 2020 comes rollin' in like a storm~. If you've made it this far, bless you for checkin' in! If you ever want to hit me up, feel free to swing by my tumblr (I'm in RDR2 hell, pls send help) or hit ye olde "contact author" button—should be connected to my current email!

Badland Blues by Swiftlet Rated: T [Reviews - 0]
Summary: She is the phantom splatter of color in a world of perpetual gray, faded like a pre-war oil pastel, and yet the richness is never lost. She encompasses the entirety of his senses even as a shade of memory, carrying the faint hint of Wasteland dust and old world lilacs. She is a magnificent creature.

She is also supposed to be dead.
