Author has written 7 stories for Protector of the Small Quartet, Beka Cooper series, Song of the Lioness, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

I enjoy stories (particularly fantasy) which portray a strong female lead character. Tamora Pierce was my favorite author when I was in middle school, and I still read whatever books she publishes.

Keep in mind: what I write here is purely for amusement and guilty pleasure (as fanfiction should be).

My favorite pairings:

--Kel/ Dom (Kel is my favorite Tortall heroine--she is NOT a watered down version of the Lioness!)

--Beka/ Rosto (though I'm not entirely certain that they'll end up together...)

--Any other canon pairing



I'm not just about pairings. I like good narratives, though a little side dish of romance is always yummy. The kind of fanfics I like best are the ones that emulate the canon writing styles. I don't like Mary-Sues. Also, authors who destroy/ignore canon character traits in order to push outrageous plotlines really make me mad.

A Few Notes About My Stories:

--Beka's Cat is finished. Sorry, I've had enough of it. It was amazing to write, but I don't think there's anything to add. Plus, I doubt I could manipulate the time factor any further without driving myself bonkers. But, some background trivia on the story if you're interested: 1) the story's title pays subtle hommage to Schrondinger's Cat, a physics allegory 2) most of the time-traveling logistics are inspired and adapted from the book "Time Line," 3) the last chapter contains a reference to Shakespeare.

--My favorite fanfic (of the ones I've written) is A New Home. It's complete, and probably my best writing to date.

--Kel Takes the Cake is SLOWLY falling into place, piece by piece. All things considered, I think the story is plugging along okay, but I am struggling to keep it moving.

--Puppy Love was originally going to be a single songfic about Beka/Rosto, but now I'll try just about any pairing. Updates on this anthology should be forthcoming. I'm working on Daine/Numair at the moment.

--Calypso (a POTC poem fanfic) stands alone, both its style and universe are unusual for me. It was a good exercise, but once was enough.

--Rape of the Lock my latest story, a oneshot of Beka Cooper. It was written for a fanfiction competition on LiveJournal. It doesn't serve much purpose, other than to explore the character of Beka.

Things I'd like to see someday (and may get around to writing them myself)

--A story about the thief who stole Mithros's shield (mentioned briefly in TQ). I can't help but think the thief was a girl. What happened to her afterwards? What'd she do with the shield? Use it? Hide it? Is she even mortal? She's certainly gifted...where'd she learn her craft?

--Taybur, anything about him. He is one awesome character that TP neglected to fully embellish. Anyone else care to try?

--Onua/Sarge, I think they work; they both have had a really rough past, and they've been close friends for so long...

--Something about Goodwin's man.

--The full story of how Clary took down a berserker (which I attempted to write in "Clary's Day")
