Author has written 23 stories for Shakespeare, Death Note, Queer as Folk, Sherlock, and Misc. Books.

Welcome!

Most of what I've written is up here, but there are some stories that are located only on LJ. For these, go to my LJ account ("pargoletta," creatively enough) and look under the "fic" tag. You'll find:

Death Note

Hysterical Paroxysm (Hard R/NC-17): Light discovers a new aspect of the notebook that burns away a little more of his humanity and moves him that much closer to godhood.

Shakespeare

Tempering Extremities (Hard R/one NC-17 chapter): The sudden addition of two hurt boys to the royal household of Verona is giving Escalus headaches. But the arrival of an old friend may help to solve some of his problems, even as it creates others. A Caro-verse story.

The Mansion Of A Love (Hard R): After being summarily bound together, Mercutio and Benvolio must learn how to be true consorts to each other. Here are five moments in that learning process. A Caro-verse story.
