Author has written 33 stories for Grey's Anatomy.

26 year old registered nurse who writes fics to keep my sanity and put my medical knowledge to good use. Grey's Anatomy is the only fandom I write about, and ninety-nine percent of it is MerDer. They're my OTP. I love (most of) the other characters too, but MerDer are the only ones that I obsess over to an unhealthy level. I don't own Grey's, but I've discussed my love of it with Kate Walsh and Patrick Dempsey a few times in real life. Does that count? ;)

Happy reading!

Thinking Over reviews
Mainly a MerDer story. Maybe the other characters. My Season 4 continuation after 4.11 in which I attempt to fix things. Hopefully a good healing fic. Enjoy.

The Age of Princesses and Pirate Ships reviews
This is my usual post-season finale one shot. Very, very spoilery of you haven't seen the season nine finale. For once, I actually loved how Shonda handled the MerDer story, and I wanted to expand on it. Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

MerDer and Zola Christmas one shot. Little glimpses into their holiday season, and of course, includes mentions of baby number two! Slightly spoilery if you're not caught up with season 9. Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

Entwined reviews
This is a post "I Was Made for Lovin' You" one shot. MerDer, as always. Very spoilery if you haven't seen episode 9.07. Meredith and Derek discusses the events of the night before, with a little Zola mixed in, just because she's too adorable not to include. Enjoy, and please let me know what you think!

Are We There Yet? reviews
A post-Flight one shot, MerDer-centric. Spoilery if you haven't seen the season 8 finale. It's written chronologically, and like the last one shot I wrote, contains glimpses that span over time, and not just a few days. MerDer cope with a loss.

Before I Ever Knew You reviews
This is different from my other fics. It's not really a post-episode fic, but glimpses into Meredith, Derek and Zola's everyday life, which we rarely get to see. It's also a past/present/future fic, and is sectioned off into mini-fics. Enjoy!

So, this is another fix-it one shot to add to the vault, based after 8.02, and includes spoilery stuff from the promos, too, in which Meredith and Derek have an actual conversation. Crazy thought, isn't it? Anyway, enjoy!

MerDer; post season six. Not spoilery. Random one shot idea that I couldn't get out of my head. The thought of Meredith and Derek taking a road trip together amused me, so I wrote something. Enjoy!

Unarmed reviews
Post season six finale mini fic in which I pick up the pieces left behind. Strictly MerDer. We could all use a little therapy after that episode, right? Very spoilery if you haven't the season six finale yet.

Adventures in Whoville reviews
MerDer one shot, set after "Suicide is Painless." Basically an extension of the "Whoville" scene, in which they have a conversation that lasts longer than 30 seconds. Spoilery if you haven't seen the episode. Enjoy.

Cut from the Same Cloth reviews
MerDer one shot, set directly after "I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked." Based on Joan Rater's blog excerpt, which sums up the point that even when they fight, they're on the same team, because that's marriage. Enjoy.

The Headboard Chronicles reviews
I noticed in the latest episode that this is Meredith and Derek's third headboard. And I was curious as to why that is, even though I'm sure we can all figure out the dirty reasons behind it. Set between 6.06 and 6.07. Enjoy.

What If You reviews
She’s been there for him every time he needed her, and even when he didn’t. That’s just what you do when you love someone. You don’t run and hide and pretend everything is okay. Meredith knows from experience that stuff like that is crap. 5.17 oneshot.
