Author has written 28 stories for 24, and Burn Notice.

It's been so long since I've been on this site that I don't think they even had this Profile feature the last time I was here. So, sorry if you've been looking for it and haven't found anything.

I started writing fics when I was watching 24, and it's still about the only show for which I write or even read fics. Something about the character of Jack got under my skin. It's mostly healed over now, a thin little scar that only itches occasionally.

Writing fanfiction was so much fun. I write for a living, but I hadn't tried fiction for over 20 years when I started my first, lamentably terrible ficlet. I'll admit that I didn't take it all that seriously. The temptation to overwrite and play with language in ways I can't do at work proved overwhelming all too frequently. I am amazed and humbled that my offerings are still finding an audience, all this time later.

Please accept my apologies for the parts that are truly terrible, and enjoy the bits that manage to work. I'm not likely to update. RL has moved on, and fic doesn't have the same hold on me that it once did. I'm grateful for what it gave me, including some wonderful friends.

The Everlasting Present by Scriobhaim reviews
"I don't think of the past. The only thing that matters is the everlasting present." -W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) More than ten years have passed since Michael, Fiona, and Charlie began life anew on the Iveragh peninsula. But can the past ever truly be behind anyone? Sometimes past and present meet, not always easily. A sequel to the story, "Sea and Change".

Aftermath reviews
After S8, Jack flees to Canada, where he seeks help from the only person he can trust. Or can he? This is an old story, so it's complete. I'm doing some housekeeping and moving a few things over here from LJ. OCs are from my previous stories, "The Home Front" and "Pins and Needles" but you don't have to have read those for this. Spoilers up to the end of S8. Some swearing.

An Uneasy Feeling reviews
A little one-shot from the Ireland days, with a bit of Sam's POV. My canon is mostly S1-2, rather than the retcon of S6, but it doesn't really matter for this one. It's a little vignette of Michael getting to know Fiona.

All the Trouble in My Life Began reviews
My take on how Fi and Michael met. This mostly follows the original canon from the first and second season, rather than the retcon of S6 and the comics, apart from their first conversation. Burn Notice is the property of Matt Nix and the USA network. Chapter 5 of 5 now up.
