Author has written 44 stories for Angel, Forever Knight, Lois and Clark, Grey's Anatomy, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.
I work in IT, but writing has always been my secret love. My first fanfic was written for Forever Knight, though I've since branched out into other shows. I like to think that my writing has improved over the years :) Feedback helps me make improvements, and I thrive on constructive criticism, so please feel free to let me know whether you enjoyed or disliked my work and why.
*Currently writing: All Along The Watchtower - a new Grey's fic in the works
My personal favorites of the stories I've written:
Lightning Strikes Twice - My most gigantic writing project ever. This thing turned into a monster, and after over a year of working on it, I finished it. I cannot begin to describe how proud I am of this fic.
Waking a Miracle - my first story longer than a standard novel. I was so proud when I finished this! In addition, I just love writing Lois Lane. She is probably my favorite character to write, ever. She's smart, funny, vulnerable... When I start writing a chapter in her POV, I can rarely curtail my enthusiasm.
Good Samaritan - my first story from an original character POV, and my first serious effort in experimenting with first person POVs. This was supposed to be a short story, but it turned into a novella somewhere along the way. Don't you love it when that happens?
Treading on Thin Ice and Standing on Solid Ground - I've really become a sucker for Meredith/Derek on Grey's Anatomy. These two stories were my first attempts at writing anything outside of a pure fantasy realm, and I really liked how they turned out. Standing on Solid Ground, which was supposed to be a one-shot, is now a monster, but one that I LOVE. I had so much fun writing this! You really don't understand how proud I am of this beast. Anyway, I can't wait to see what's next for my Mer/Der writing.
Reconstruction - I wrote this back when I was starting to get really disappointed with how Angel's shades of beige arc was being handled. I really like how it turned out.
Nothing Gold Can Stay - What started out as a piece of fluff turned into some good character exploration for me. I really enjoyed writing this, staying true to my Buffy/Angel roots, but not making it too sappy.
Sadness, In a Minor Key - I think this is my most creative endeavor. And it's really where I started flexing my muscles, writing-wise.
A description of my writing, show-wise, from oldest to newest:
Forever Knight - this was the first fandom I wrote for, and boy did I write. I wrote up a storm. I was a diehard NNPacker to begin with, and slowly grew to enjoy CoTK as well. The early stuff is bad, to be honest. LaCroix was really out of character, a problem I think I fixed toward the end of my FK stint with the stories: Darkest Hour, and Through a Glass, Darkly, and my plots were kinda transparent and/or angsty for the sake of angst. These were all written back when I was still in high school, and I think it shows.
Angel - after Forever Knight, I migrated to another mopey vampire and had some fun in that fandom. I didn't write as much, but I think the quality improved quite a bit, compliments of a college education and an expanding realm of experience. I was a Buffy/Angel shipper from beginning to end. My story, Swan Song, though I didn't know it at the time, was actually my own swan song in the Angel arena. I gotta say, after going through and editing Swan Song, it's a lot more... twisted and angsty than I remember. I'm not sure how I feel about it.
Lois and Clark - I think this was the first of what I call my modern writing style, and my first attempt at writing post-college. I'm still working and developing my style, but the leaps in quality aren't so drastic anymore. Waking a Miracle was a giant (literally) breakthrough for me, in that it proved to me that I have the staying power to write a novel. Good Samaritan proved to me that I can write an original character that isn't a one-dimensional throwaway or a Mary Sue. I hope this eventually means I will be writing my own original novels, but we'll see. For now, writing fanfic continues to be one of my most enjoyable hobbies.
Grey's Anatomy - My newest obsession. I can't wait to see what all I come up with for this. I'm not really used to writing in a non-fantasy arena. It's new, and different, and fun! And I really just can't get enough of Meredith/Derek. The only thing I find myself wondering about is the community. Where is it? I've found only one or two sites that have any sort of volume on them.
