Author has written 6 stories for Gilmore Girls, and Vampire Academy.

Hello, friends.

A little about myself: I'm a die-hard literati fan and just a general lover of well-written romance (and occasional smut, too :P). I've been reading fanfic since before I can remember (The Pretender and X-Files, way back when...), have been writing fanfic for years now (almost all of them Gilmore Girls, and many, sitting in notebooks somewhere), and eventually found my way to posting them here.

Needless to say, I'm still stuck in the world of Rory and Jess (and sometimes Tristan, too, when I'm feeling nostalgic). I know there are some of you out there who are, too- maybe we can keep each other company and keep the lit dream alive. :)

Despite being an adult with a full-time job, I usually still feel like just a kid with a yen to express myself; if you're ever looking for me, you'll probably find me at a coffeeshop with a novel and my laptop, Bright Eyes playing through my headphones.

And, like every other self-respecting (or self-defeating) fanfic writer out there, I am a feedback whore. If you've read any of my fics and had any thoughts about them at all, let me know!

UPDATE 11/21/11: Thanks to all the readers who are still adding Not the Usual Kind to their story alerts... I swear, that fic is spinning round my head more often than not, and I will finish it. I'm taking a cue from abc79-de and writing out notes for the rest of the story. As opposed to my usual style, which is dwelling on scenes in my head whenever I get the urge, then eventually just writing them out willy-nilly, letting my typing fingers lead the way. Anyway. As a result, I have a six page word doc saved on my desktop and a general idea of how the rest of the story unwinds. But I'm having trouble actually getting this next chapter out. Gotta find a few quiet moments and just make it happen, I guess... Stay tuned. And a lil reminder, reviews are sometimes just the thing that that fickle creature called muse needs to get inspired... ;)

Two Ships by abc79-de reviews
Jess stops in to pick up something left in Stars Hollow. Rory stops to crash in her old bed for a night. Neither is expecting company, but they find it nonetheless.

Together We'll Move On by MissGoalie75 reviews

Not the Usual Kind reviews
FutureFic. Rory's life is not quite going as planned. The realization that she may have never really gotten over one Jess Mariano isn't helping. Tipsy phone calls to ex-lovers generally don't help either, but when did that ever stop anyone?
