Author has written 7 stories for Inheritance Cycle, Avatar: Last Airbender, Harry Potter, Phantom of the Opera, A song of Ice and Fire, and Frankenstein.

Hello you wonderful community you! Thanks to everyone who has made putting up my work online such a wonderful, supportive experience, and hello to new fans and friends!

I'm a huge literary nerd, a romantic at heart, and a proud feminist. I try to represent a broad spectrum of female leads, from fierce women who skewer gender roles, to soft and nurturing women, to Machiavellian ice queens, to women with glaring flaws who have to figure themselves out.

As my fans know, I definitely have a male type--I love creating happy endings for men who for one reason or another are never given the love they deserve. I also love me a bad-boy-who's-not-a-bad-boy-for-the-women-he-loves. Such a sucker for that...

I can nerd out over Name of the Wind, Harry Potter, LOTR, Inheritance, Robin McKinley's stuff, Buffy, Song of Ice and Fire, and even oldies like Austen, Frankenstein, Phantom of the Opera, Hunchback of ND. Recent stuff I've been loving includes the Defy the Stars series and Brandon Sanderson's stuff.

Writing is my hobby and my joy, and I love hearing from other writers here, receiving suggestions and comments, and even writing-upon-requests if you have an idea you'd like me to breathe to life!

So much love,


Visible Reality

by Rumi

If you want what visible reality can give, you're an employee.
If you want the unseen world, you're not living your truth.
Both wishes are foolish, but you'll be forgiven for forgetting
that what you really want is love's confusing joy.

Unbidden by Perry Downing reviews
"I'll destroy her," rings in his ears and he's shocked by how shamed he is he ever said those words. He'd meant them, oh how he'd meant them. He'd been lost to his rage and he'd thought he could … he knows now that he could never hurt her. Kylo struggles with Rey's rejection and a new threat pushes them together again.

Bucky and Pearl by macmillanluv reviews
Steve has Bucky locked up. Pearl Palmer, recently unemployed, starts a new job with The Avengers, becomes the only person to elicit any reaction from Bucky and her job assignment gets rewritten.

Kindred by SmallestGrackle reviews
It is said that two souls, whether kin or strangers, old or young, friend or foe, may be 'kindred'. These souls are thought to be bound in some way, their paths wound by Fate from the same thread. Many never realize this, but some choose to follow the thread, whatever may come. Until. - This is a Blackwater departure AU, with the goal of character realism and a slow-burning plot.

At Winter's End by bluecrush611 reviews
James "Bucky" Barnes didn't remember much about what it was to be normal. He experienced flickers of it while being around his best friend, Steve Rogers, but it wasn't enough. He was to be forever haunted by The Winter Soldier - until he met Agent Madison Clark and a series of events changed everything. Takes place sometime after Civil War. Bucky/OC

Alyssa's Tears by pinkolifant reviews
Sandor Clegane is climbing from the Mountains of the Moon to the Eyrie and thinking of his past. He may or may not win Sansa Stark in the end. The olifant's best shot at book canon in character SanSan, without giving or taking from either of the characters. Plot-wise it continues after DwD and it takes on board Sansa's chapter from WoW published at some point on GRRM website

Winter's Thaw by AGameOfFanfic reviews
The Queen in the North is reunited with her long lost husband after five years apart when he returns at the side of the new Targaryen conqueror. Sansa/Tyrion. M for graphic violence, later mature romance. Post ADWD. Mostly book canon, but some show influence. And yes, Sansa should have been Queen in the North. Fight me. / On Hold while I work on "If only, if only".

Pygmalion by Colubrina reviews
When Tom Riddle walked through a doorway one fall afternoon everything changed and he found himself in a world wholly unprepared for him. "Something about you makes my brain itch," Hermione Granger said. "As if an earthquake had shifted everything sharply two feet to the left and then back again and it didn't all fit back quite right." Tomione. AU. COMPLETE.

The Path of Faith by sandysalsa reviews
The Winter Winds are howling, and Sandor recognizes the Quiet Isle's new refugee. / FutureFic, sticks to canon and takes liberties with TWoW-taking place sometime near the end of/after that timeline. Slow-build; M rating for potential developments.

Shades of Red by sunnyontheheights reviews
Odin realizes his last hope to get through to his adopted son is to banish him, like Thor, to the one place he despises most: Midgard.

Nightmare by provocative envy reviews
COMPLETE: A broken time turner shouldn't have sent me back so far. It was unprecedented. Stepping on it-smashing it-nothing should have happened. At most, I should have lost a week. At worst, I should have disappeared altogether. I shouldn't have traveled back fifty-two years; half a bloody century. This should not have happened. HG/TR.
