Author has written 20 stories for Ugly Betty.

Hello, all!

My name's Meg, but I also answer to SewerUrchin or "Hey, you!" on here. I'm a former English major, and thus far writing fanfiction is the only thing I've done with my degree besides lamenting not majoring in something else. But! That's not to say I don't have a blast. My old, unpolished stuff was under a different username (no2benry), it was strictly in the Ugly Betty fandom, and strictly the Daniel/Betty ship. Now I'd like to branch out into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and I'm rather rusty, so be forewarned. It's been years, y'all.

That's not to say I haven't had other 'ships in other fandoms along the way, I just haven't written about them. I always tend to root for the good girls paired with the flawed bad boys with hearts of gold: Scully/Mulder, Joey/Pacey, Rory/Logan, Buffy/Spike, Spike/Fred, Lana/Lex (don't check me into an institution), Nathan/Haley (yes, I watch One Tree Hill), Mal/Inara, Daniel/Betty, Draco/Hermione, The Hound/Sansa, Goliath/Elisa, Grant/Skye, etc. And, yes, I'm an April/Raph 'shipper. Don't stone me, I think it could work. I also like April/Don, but April with either of the other Turtles doesn't really float my boat. There's probably some psychological reasons for my particular 'shipping preferences, but perhaps I'm better off not delving too deep. :P

A Bit About Me:

Likes: Excellent television (read: scripted dramas, no scripted "reality" shows), anything Joss Whedon has ever done (even the Buffy movie had its merits), music (anything that comes on the radio--I don't listen to anything in order to seem edgy and underground. I rock out to "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" for God's sake), painting, oil pastels, stained glass, any and all animals, historical and paranormal romance novels (Kresley Cole, Lisa Kleypas, Sandra Brown, and Kathleen Woodiwiss are my faves), house cleaning, sweet guys with pretty tattoos and six-pack abs, dancing while alone, babies younger than age 1 (beyond that, they start to get annoying), the beach, napping, the smell of cigarette smoke although I've never smoked a day in my life, Coca-cola, food, Eric Mabius, and Tom Felton.

Dislikes: Aforementioned reality tv, cantaloupe, olives, judgy people, puppets, wind, spiders, needles, and excessively cold weather, any and all team sports (both watching and playing, blech), the taste of alcohol and being around drunk people (not fun), animal cruelty (if you can't take care of your animals, why have them?), babysitting loud, bratty kids.

Update: Whelp, I'm still alive. It's been years since I've posted anything on, and I figured some changes were in order. I was no2benry, but I'm now SewerUrchin. I'm hugely flattered that my old, gnarly Ugly Betty fiction is still getting views and reviews, and an enormous "Thank you and I'm very, very sorry" to anyone who has bothered to delve into it after all this time. Unfortunately, I don't have plans to update any of the incomplete fics or start any new stories. Once again, immensely sorry to leave people hanging. I don't like to make a habit of doing that. The inspiration just isn't there anymore, I was younger and slightly stupider when I wrote those, the fire is gone, etc., etc., yadda, yadda. While I will always love Ugly Betty and the Daniel/Betty 'ship from tip to tail, the show got cancelled, no sign of a movie yet (boo!), and I stopped dabbling in that particular fandom.

I'm in the process of writing some April/Raphael fic. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was really my first fandom, and I truly mean that. I was dancing around to the theme song, wearing the t-shirts, snuggling with the plush dolls and playing with the action figures while I was still in Pampers Pull-Ups. I'm 27, so I was digging on the 80's cartoon then, but I've been a fan of every incarnation since, except The Next Mutation. Let us never speak of that. Let us never speak of Venus.

I've noticed my tendency to write within my own cobbled-together 'verse. My April is the belly-baring Action Girl of the 2003 series, not the reporter or the child (no disrespect intended to those incarnations of the character.) I also tend to write the Turtles as older, so I guess you could say I write AU Futurefic? I guess? I confess, I haven't watched the entire 2003 series yet, so I'm sure I miss some intricate in-and-outs of timeline and plot. Oh, well. I do my own thing.

Why April/Raphael? Why not? It's probably just my own fanwank, but I've always detected something simmering yet hard-edged in their interactions that fascinates me. She's attracted to Casey Jones in canon, and he and Raph are cut from the same cloth. She obviously has no objection to bad boys, aside from when the lady doth protest too much. I don't consider the pairing bestiality by an stretch. It's not like she's picking up a turtle out of a pet store terrarium and making out with it. The Turtles are humanoid, with human-level intelligence and emotions. They walk upright, they have human DNA. I'd consider the age difference between April and the guys to be bigger obstacle, which is probably why I write Future-fic where the Turtles are no longer teens.

Anyway, if anyone is still reading, which I doubt, comments and concrit are always welcome, but don't feel like you have to. Lurkers are appreciated, too.

Guitar and Video Games by theherocomplex reviews
It's not entirely accurate to say that Donatello almost gave himself away because of a video game, but since the alternative is to say he almost gave himself away because of a Halloween costume, he's going to stick with the video game story.

Turtle Table Manners by Rakked reviews
April's sitting at the table in the lair. Studying. That's all. Just studying her homework. It is a coincidence that none of the other turtles can find Donatello. Rated M for adult content.

The Power of Chocolate by Vagari reviews
When April secretly calls Raphael bawling her eyes out, he is frantic to make her stop crying and reluctantly agrees to fulfill a need that has rightfully passed on to Casey as The Man in her life. Raphael knows he needs to find a way to put the boundaries back up before he gets caught, but can he also find a way to tell April she can still always come to him for anything?

Getting to Know You by Vaeru reviews
Oneshots. It takes some getting used to, hanging around mutant ninja turtles. "The VCR blinks 12:00 in a never-ending beat, but the television is off, and April blinks blurrily into the darkness, wondering briefly of where and why."
