I'm Kapa, and I've been writing fic since 2013. I write in a few fandoms and genres, but mainly drabbles, one-shots and short stories. When it comes to both writing and reading I love AUs of all sorts, femslash, rare pairs, minor characters, character studies, autistic characters, experimental stories, epistolary stories, and worldbuilding.
I'm Sandel on AO3, Kapalunka on ff.net and FireOpalQueen on HPFF.
I won the 2015 Dobby for Best New Author back on HPFF.
Your name pounds through my veins in time with my heartbeat; Dominique, Dominique, Dominique.
