Author has written 22 stories for Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Avengers, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Calvin & Hobbes, Librarians, 2014, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Firefly, Incredibles, X-Men: The Movie, Bloom County, Megamind, Inception, Cats, Labyrinth, and Discworld.

I am a writer and an unashamed escapist. Fan fiction gives me an avenue to be both of these things at once, so naturally I read it frequently and write it when I can. I've written for a lot of fandoms and genres because I'm always looking for new worlds and new versions of events to dive into. A lot of my fics are stories I wanted to read that didn't exist, so I had to create them myself.

I've given up trying to predict what I'll write next, having broken many of the self-imposed rules I had when I started out. However, it is safe to assume I won't write anything M-rated, won't do a slash or genderswap ship, and will steer clear of swearing.

Quotes:

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." - Ray Bradbury

"There is some pleasure even in words when they bring forgetfulness of present miseries." - Sophocles

"[Masks are] terribly comfortable. I think everyone will be wearing them in the future." - William Goldman, The Princess Bride

and gather it all in a bunch of heather reviews
Sarah is trying to reunite with Jareth and has run out of options. Jareth wants to be found, but has no power to make it so. Scarborough Fair might be the only place they can come back together for good. Better break out the parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme...

The Man from Dyton Colony reviews
The TARDIS strands the Doctor and Donna on a Firefly-class ship in the 25th century. Why has the Doctor never heard of Reavers, and how are they connected to the "slightly psychic" River? Rated T for eventual (inevitable) mixup of DW "companion" vs. Firefly "Companion".
