roach is a BNF fic writer and fan artist in the Homestuck fandom. He formerly used the pseud roachpatrol but has since changed it to roach-works. Roach's fanworks, from fanfiction to fanart, was extremely popular in the fandom. He also collaborated with other Homestuck BNFs such as Tamsyn Muir, formerly urbanAnchorite, and Shelby Cragg, formerly schellibie. He was mainly active between 2011 and 2017.


Roach's fanworks are notoriously dark and gripping, often explicit. He was very active in the Homestuck kinkmeme. Many of his works contained noncon, dubcon, and age difference. For this, he was often targeted by antis and accused of pedophilia, despite several blog posts or asks discussing his trauma with sexual violence.
