Author has written 7 stories for Resident Evil, Fable, Neverwinter Nights, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Detroit: Become Human, and Once Upon a Time.

I like romances. Usually with jerks. And the most important thing in any story for me is dialog, and keeping people in character.

I read a lot more than I write, since I don't really have the time. I also don't write linearly, and tend to jump around chapters wherever inspiration strikes. It means I usually can't post anything until a story is totally complete, so a lot of my writing just never sees the light of day.

About my stories...

Fighting From the Inside

A WeskerxJill Resident Evil 5 fic. My first posted story, and the point that I realized the only way I would finish anything was if I kept it as a short work. I had been writing for quite a bit before this came out, so all that past tossed away experience landed here. A few reviewers pointed out that they felt the story ended too soon, and in a way they're right. I originally had an extra chapter of an infatuated Wesker and a brainwashed Jill gallivanting about the marshlands, but an entire chapter of Wesker pining and Jill with zero personality just seemed too cheesy. And though I tried to make it work, the simple act of having Wesker dwell too long on his feelings felt out of character to me. So I cut it. It may have left a noticeable hole, but I feel the story is better off without it.

Your Loyal Attendant

A ReaverxPrincess Fable III fic. I had come this close to writing a Fable II Reaver fic when I was playing the game, but decided against it. So by the time Fable III came out, I just couldn't resist Reaver any longer. The overall plot changed about five times, and I scrapped at least two chapters of material to get it flowing right. I even gave up entirely on ever finishing it at one point, but I couldn't stop writing it out in my head when I was idle. No heavy ruminations on humanity or the duality of love here, just good old fashioned innuendo-laced banter.

The Hunter's Game

A BishopxKC Neverwinter Nights 2 fic. The first fanfiction I ever started seriously writing, and the reason I've vowed to keep everything else as a short work. At seventeen chapters and over 70k words, it was just too long to find the time and proper motivation to work on it over the years. It was written entirely out of order, starting near the end and then jumping around to wherever I found inspiration without ever properly completing a chapter. I spent countless hours revising and rewriting to tie it all together, because I felt not finishing it would have just been a waste. Though it's got samples of my early work, overall I'm pretty pleased with it.

Trifecta

A BuffyxSpike Buffy the Vampire Slayer fic. Season 6 started out so compelling, with all the dark themes being pretty well explored. But somewhere along the way, Spike's character was shifted, as if he was two different people: someone capable of love, and someone who isn't. Since the show always presented him as “love's bitch” before season 6, I wanted to explore how to reconcile that version of Spike with the show's unending importance of a soul, and how that could work. This is my attempt, at least.

Sudden Sensations

A ConnorXOC Detroit: Become Human fic. I’m doing things a bit different with this one, and just publishing the chapters as I write them, so updates are likely to be sporadic. I do have the entire outline of the story complete though, so I know what happens in every chapter already, I just have to flesh out the details. I had convinced myself I didn’t have the time to write any more fan fiction, but Connor was just too persuasive.

Dreams of Wings and Shadow reviews
Hook shivered at her explorations. "Easy love," he warned, his eyes boring into hers. "I can feel that." "How do you feel a set of wings made out of shadow?" Emma asked. "Feels a bit like you're running your hand down the bare skin of my back," he replied, raising a brow at her. Later that night, Emma started having some very explicit dreams about the winged Captain.
