All silliness aside, I'm a FoLC (Fan of Lois and Clark) a Pretender fan, a member of DarkNN, Merc, and Addict by Association in Forever Knight, H/M shipper in JAG, a Star Wars fan, and my latest fandom is Harry Potter.
And yes, I'm also barely on the Harry/Ginny bandwagon. I could see it coming back in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I don't write slash and rarely read it, so you'll never find any here. I'm firmly in denial of both Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, so in my little Potterverse worlds, they didn't happen and won't happen. I may, however, refer to bits of canonical knowledge from them and perhaps even write some reaction pieces. Don't hold your breath waiting for 'em, though. I've too many other stories in the works to start another.
I have a degree in creative writing, so as you can probably imagine, I'm pretty good at what I do and fanfic is my escape.
Well, as per the requirements, anything that can even vaguely be labeled a songfic has been removed from ff.net. So if you're looking for Mediations, Forever and All Eternity: Lullaby, or Frog Kissing, they're all available on my webpage.
January 27, 2010- A note to my For Duty and Honor readers: For Duty and Honor is neither finished nor abandoned. We're currently experiencing technical difficulties due to Real Life. The next two chapters are still in beta/editing because my main Britpicker has been really busy and hasn't had the time to look at them. I promise to post as soon as I can, but the time lag between chapters can't be helped at the moment--it's well beyond my control. I'm still writing Precatio Una, because my highly distractable muse saw some shiny plots and ran after them.
December 12, 2010- A note for Midnight Watch readers: Like For Duty and Honor, I'm still working on Midnight Watch. It's just slow. I have no beta reader, I have a toddler that demands my attention, and very little writing time. And right now, well, I have Christmas presents to make! Hang in there, and I'll try to finish the next chapter in time for the new year.
July 16, 2012-- Recently, I have received anonymous reviews flaming me for including non-graphic mentions of sexual abuse in True Confessions. Whether you like it or not, neglected kids like Harry practically have targets painted on them for predators, and IMHO, with Dudley's canon behavior, it's not really a stretch to have him and his gang attack Harry that way. Frankly, I've been assigned more graphic short stories in school and seen more graphic things on network television. I am perfectly within FFN guidelines and I don't particularly care what you think. Rowling was non-specific about how the Dursleys abused Harry. Why? Because she was writing an adventure story and didn't want to deal with the fact that he was abused. For as much as he was hated by them, every type of abuse was likely--though considering Vernon and Petunia's views on "abnormalities" I doubt his aunt or uncle would have been behind SA. Canonically, he was neglected, emotionally and mentally abused, and there is evidence that points towards physical abuse. The real question is why in hell nobody noticed and why the Dursleys aren't in jail! After all, there was a public education push about child abuse in the early 80s, and teachers are mandated reporters both in the UK and the states--they're required by law to report even suspected abuse and/or neglect! So in short, if you don't like it lump it. And if you don't have the courage to sign your real name, don't bother. Though I'm willing to throw a single bone--I'll change the rating to M, even though I'm convinced it's a T! The very first sentence should have clued you into the fact that it was a story about child abuse. And if you're not smart enough to realize it, well, that sounds like a personal problem to me!
Updates of both For Duty and Honor and Midnight Watch will continue to be slow. I may find more writing time once Bit starts preschool next month, but I'm not sure. Now that I've got two kiddos to take care of, any (ha ha) free time is spent sewing and making them clothes.

I've been asked about the Latin chapter titles in For Duty and Honor, so I'll post the translations here. My thanks to Owen, a retired Latin teacher, who has graciously offered to check my work to make sure it's correct. :) Some of the titles have changed to reflect his corrections, and he's also agreed to check my 'spells' for translations purposes. Hey! I took French! ;)

I'm currently working on a few Forever Knight plots that grabbed me and won't let go. There is a Harry Potter story over on Potions and Snitches for the Invisibility challenge brewing as well, called Hiding in Plain Sight. I also have three (yikes!) crossovers in the works, and I'm coming up with a rough outline for a sequel to For Duty and Honor tentatively titled For Honor and Loyalty. The crossovers are, first and foremost, a HP/JAG cross entitled Of Wands and Gold Wings, a HP/Labyrinth cross called Underhill, Overhill, and I've started posting a HP/Forever Knight cross called Midnight Watch. Yeah, I'm weird. The crossover plot bunnies assaulted me.
September 21, 2007--There are no plans for a sequel to True Confessions. I've received many reviews asking for one, but as of right now, I have no plans for one. :) I arrived at a good place to stop... so I did. I know all the threads aren't neatly wrapped up the way I usually do in longer pieces, but that's why it's a short story. I am, however both shocked and honored at the response to my little short story. I mean, it's garnered 4, 650 hits, 51 reviews, 41 C2s, and 56 favorite lists. Wow. For a one shot. As a fandom, y'all have been incredibly nice to me. For Duty and Honor is the only one that's on more C2 lists--200 in fact. To all those who have reviewed and/or added me to your C2 groups, thank you. There is definitely more to come.
December 12, 2010-- Nothing is abandoned. I'm just busy due to the monster known as Real Life. A toddler in the house leave little time for writing, especially since she's growing and needs Auntie Laura to make her new clothes because RTW is too short in 2T, and too big in 3T and Mommy doesn't sew! (We babysit while my brother and sister-in-law work, so have half shares in raising her.) I do have some stories that I'm dabbling with, but like I said, my time is limited, and my family is more important than writing at the moment. I miss it, but I can go back... Kids grow fast and my niece won't be two forever.
Oh, and a note: I delete reviews from obvious trolls. Yes, Mary77, I'm talking to you. Constructive criticism is one thing. Accusing me of condoning child abuse is another. It's one of the fastest ways to piss me off! My mom was an abused child and is still dealing with the effects 47 years later. Personally, I'm bloody minded about it--I say we stump hang all the child abusers and let whatever waits in the afterlife to sort them out. It may not be a popular opinion, but there it is. And you can like it or lump it.
