Author has written 5 stories for Grey's Anatomy.

Update

WDYHITS is on hiatus. Events in my non-online life started to affect the writing and plotting. And then Season 3 started, and some of my plans were stolen by those people in Shondaland. The nerve! Not enough of them though, otherwise I wouldn't want to send waffles to poor Patrick every time a new episode is shown, for having to play Derek. Take your time! I've been in love with you forever! I'm walking away! You're the love of my life! I can't wait for you! Bleaugh. Read ariaadagio and samsolace, they do it better.

Now back to the regularly scheduled profile. . .

I'm a little (a lot?) obsessed with Grey's Anatomy, and have been since I watched the preview for the premiere. I love the characters and how complicated they are--almost like real people! Most, if not all, of my fic will work with what we see onscreen, presenting scenes that didn't even make the DVDs, and giving the thoughts of the characters in scenes we do have. That's what the written word does so much better than television, the interior monologue. If the interior monologue were a person, I'd marry it.

I’m dark & twisty, so sometimes I’m Meredith. And I can be ballsy and sharp edged to mask vulnerability, so sometimes I’m Addison. I’m really good at pretending that my life is completely different than it is, so sometimes I’m Derek. And I am socially inept, which makes me George. I’m more George than I’d like to admit, actually. I wish I were more Christina and Bailey. But what all that means is that since I am so many different people, I thought it would be fun to create a fic telling you what they are thinking. Or what they would be thinking, if I were in charge of the GA world.

Oh, and something else. I don't do AU. Well, I do it, in that I read it. But I don't write it. I try to follow the canon of the show as closely as possible. It's like all those Star Wars books. There are hundreds, and maybe thousands of books written with the Star Wars characters. And the authors have to pass the inspection of Lucas & his minions, or they don't get published. They have to agree with canon. That's the trick of writing fanfic, to me anyway. If I don't have to make it work within the GA universe, well. . .then I might as well get my own characters & stop stealing Shonda's, right? It's like writing a sestina. (Google it.) The rules are convoluted and sometimes make no sense, but if you don't follow them, what you have is not a sestina.

What Do You Hear in These Sounds reviews
At the end of their first year, the interns make sense of everything that has happened. Begins concurrent with Time After Time & continues in canon through finale. Latest chapters into what Season 4 would be if I were Shonda. Probably not, though.
