Author has written 8 stories for Grey's Anatomy.

I swore I wouldn't let myself get sucked into another fandom...

Famous last words. ;)

Translation? I'm new to the world of Grey's fan fiction, and new to ff.net. I will say, though, that the concept of instant reviews/feedback is VERY alluring. I think all writers have a strange, inexplicable addiction to feedback. I'm quickly realizing that reviews are love.

Along that vein, there are a lot of really insanely talented Grey's fanfic writers out there. I'm only beginning to skim the surface of these stories, but the vast majority of them are pretty incredible. I can't wait to read more, and would love any recommendations!

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Grey's Anatomy or any of the characters therein. They belong to Shonda Rimes, who I respect and hate alternately, depending on what the characters are doing in any given episode. As Phoebe would say, "Not-NOT mine."

Update as of 12/13/08 - I promise I'm not dead! I haven't forgotten about SBS or Dignity, and I have a new one-shot that I'm eager to share. Unfortunately, real life has made updating difficult lately, but you definitely haven't seen the last of me. Thanks so much for your (perhaps involuntary) patience, and please watch this space!
