Author has written 123 stories for Kim Possible, and Harry Potter.
I realized I needed to write something here or be exposed as a Luddite.
"King in Yellow," if you don't recognize it, comes from an 1895 collection of short stories that influenced H.P. Lovecraft. As the holder of an earned Ph.D. from the school which served as the basis for Miskatonic University I felt some justification in laying claim to the nom de plume. Go ahead, ask me a question about early church history. I dare you. But as an academic whore I'm willing to teach anything for which I can get paid -- geography, intro. to sociology, comp, public speaking, etc. Résumés available on request.
Anyone who can identify my more obscure cultural references realizes I've passed the half century. Those of you who miss the references have probably not
I was initially opposed to marking authors as 'favorites' or for alerts, but am rethinking my position. My fear had been that, as I looked at the profiles of other writers or those who sent in reviews, or the three people who have me in favorite author or on alert status, I found myself trying to psychoanalyze them based on their preferences. Sorry people, the result of having a psychologist for a father. Anyway, I decided I didn't want people trying to figure me out based on my favorites. What you might think about me might be just too creepy. The stories which appeared on my favorites list contained connections to my Best Enemies universe, and are here for the convenience of anyone who wishes to see them. I really do have more than these favorites. I plan to start having a list of authors who I want to receive alerts on, and may even break down and admit some favorites also.
When Season 4 was announced the writers had no plans to give Kim's mom a first name. Anne was the most popular name used by fanfiction writers, but I preferred Jean for Jean Smart, the voice actress in the role. Graduation gave her a name, and the majority won. I believe I have converted all references to Kim's mom from Jean to Anne. If you discover a story I've missed (unlikely) or a spot I missed and she is still Jean (likely) please leave a review or send me a PM telling me where. I'm happy to change it.
The Best Enemies universe may be complex enough to require an introduction. The first six stories comprise the original story arc and appeared in order. Since then stories have been set in different times and have not appeared in order. Here are the stories which have currently been written, or are relatively well thought out, in their order within the Best Enemies story line. TempestDash created the names of several old enemies of Team Go: Bella Negra, Obtinus, Serpent King, and Hellpike. I have fleshed them out to fit my own needs
Note - in an 'upgrade' FFN deleted some scene dividers. It didn't change all my stories, but affected several. It makes some early stories very choppy sounding. I need to either edit text so that they are no longer needed, or insert the new and approved scene divider. And in the most recent upgrade they gave all my stories new word counts - which nearly killed me with my OCD.
