I write a lot of different stuff. Some of it relatively “pure” (urban fantasy, sword & sorcery) but a lot of it “mixed” genre (science fantasy, post-apoc hopepunk, etc). Genre is just a *very* fuzzy classification set as is, though, so 🤷‍♂️

I love watching spy films, and would like to someday write one, but I’m terrible at writing about computers/hacking, guns or other modern weapons/explosives, etc. I just don’t have the knowledge base. I also love romantic comedies, but don’t often find paranormal romance to my taste. 

I tend to also really love specific kinds of stories or maybe you could say specific tropes. I love stories where the protagonist is learning or developing magical knowledge (one reason I think I’m enjoying LitRPG/Progression stories as much as I am). I love heist stories, or the takedown of authoritarian power structures. Etc.

So supernatural-romance-comedy is my favourite combo ☆

I've about 10 other -mini- stories (not fan fics) that're related to different genres and supernatural/romance sort of fits the bill for one of them. It's called [email protected]! :D Would you be interested in reading/looking at it? I've not quite yet put the full chapter together, but I do love me some informative story stuff. I've plenty of that lol

Space noir.
Fantasy noir.
Romance noir.

Gimme that hard-boiled goodness.

I've -something- like that too. It's called B.Light! SciFi/Fantasy/Noir! I have ALOT of stories so I've covered nearly every genre save for some of the ones I don't much care for.

Of the many stories I'm writing I've a bunch of those genres. One is called Crown of Thorns (computers/hacking) and there's also B.Light (dystopia) and I think my story of Iron Dragon (western/heist-ish) would be of some interest if you ever wanted to know more. I've plenty of notes and simply need to get some chapters put together but no one has ever really cared to ask me, so I generally put it out there for people to know I like talking about them. :)

Man I've got some stories like that. I've a story that's sort of like reincarnation but with 'vices of those whom passed' as actual beings, being reborn as a actual person. It's called [email protected] I've some others you may be interested in as well! Lemme know if you'd like me to share some stuff from them. :3

Romance set in fantasy space-noir sounds pretty great
While its not centered around only romance, I do have a coulpe of works that have themes like that.

I went to your profile and didn't see the fiction link. I wouldn't mind reading it , in between procrastinating and research.

It should be up now :)
