Author has written 6 stories for Ugly Betty.

Hi, kids, how are things? I'm Lani--25, degrees in English, would-be critic, Times New Roman adversary, booksnob. I've read a bit of fanfiction intermittently throughout the years and while I've written my own nonfiction and had a brief stint into fiction, I'd never given true fanfic a real shot. So tread lightly, alright? I'm new at this. :)

Ugly Betty is my only current foray into the world of fanfic and below, you'll find only Gio/Betty fics. I try to stay light on the sap and a little heavier on character development, but I have my romantic streaks too if that's your bag. I'm a great fan of missing scene fiction and I love to keep my fiction in real-time as far as the episodes themselves are concerned. Overall, I try to keep the characters pretty well in character (when I can) and love to hear what you think.

Have fun, enjoy, read on!

Disclaimers: I'm not affiliated with UB or its lovely team of creative and technical minds and while I do occasionally rewrite/add to existing scenes, I make no money from anything you read here. I'm a mere fan with a creative bent, I promise.
