Author has written 24 stories for Misc. Plays/Musicals, X-overs, Misc. Books, Twilight, and Jane Eyre.

Behold the work of an impatient author. And behold the subtle art of procrastination: I've got it down to just that. All that you see posted here is a writing exercise, meaning I benefit from your feedback. Concrit is appreciated and will not be called a "flame". I'd like to warn you that I dabble in fandoms where historical figures are major characters; I write them as they are portrayed in their respective fandoms, not as they actually are. I also have a weird and somewhat morbid sense of humor.

I took a slight break from fanfiction for roughly a month in order to work on some original writing, and I'm coming back for a while in order to let my creative juices flow back into my creative blender and create a creative smoothie. With Eyes Closed will be updated semi-regularly, and I might (might) write some Across the Universe fic.
