In great likelihood any given fic I post will have drinking or drug abuse. Intoxicated sex, swearing, existentialism, and unreliable narrators are also a given.

Often enough I have breath-play, different forms of erotic asphyxiation, and rough sex. This makes it sound like I write a lot of porn. I do not. Don't get too excited.

The thing people complain the most about in my fic is the typos. There are many; they are often comical. This is all because I don't use a beta anymore--don't emulate this practice.

Things you are unlikely to see in my fic: actual bdsm, non-con, adult/underage, intentional mind games, self-harm (unless drinking/drugs count) or bestiality/animal cruelty. I also do not kill off characters anymore.

The exception to almost all of this is my bandpires (gerard will most certainly hurt you tag) series which is a horror novella. It's horror, that means it has: bloodplay, ultra-violence, character death, black humor, angst out the wazoo, and all kinds of dubious consent around sex.

How can you write fiction without ever killing off a character? I understand there are some stories that don't require a death, but since death is an inescapable part of life, it often finds itself in a fictional story.

When I had to kill one of my major characters, my first writing mentor called it; "killing your babies." It was appropriate because I was often loathe to kill a character I liked, but the plot called for that character's death.

I used to kill characters off left and right. I wrote through that part of what I had to say. Who knows, in OF I will surely broach it again. But wrt my ff, I mostly write comedy. People go through phases in their writing. I still write horror (if the vampire stories are anything to go by) but I don't kill main characters who are protagonist/antagonists in non-horror stories anymore/right now.

No, sorry, I don't have a list. But I mostly tag things these days? There's a Inception tag, dream a little dream, if that's what you're after!
