Author has written 10 stories for Cheers.

I discovered Cheers during the summer of lockdown and fell in love (read, became obsessed) with the show, and more specifically with the Sam & Diane storyline. Being a fanfiction reader of other fandoms in years past and enjoying the written word myself, I decided to try and exorcise some of my demons regarding the fate of this couple.

Expect random stories whenever inspiration strikes, "missing" scenes or alternate plots that pop to mind when I watch, re-watch, or think about this show way more than I probably should.

English isn't my first language so please do excuse any writing glitches you may encounter.

Thank you so much for reading, and for every little note you leave on my work. I've had a great time writing these so far and it's heartwarming to know they bring you a little joy, too.

Would I Lie To You? reviews
Additional scene to Strange Bedfellows Part 3, in season 4. Sam returns to the office to catch Diane hiding under his desk, and she gets to apologize to him like she'd intended to. What could be behind Sam saying 'I've been thinking about you' at the end of the episode, before he proposes.

Why Will I Marry Thee? Let Me Count The Reasons reviews
Because it's Valentine's Day, here's a second M-rated to mark the day with a little sweetness. Set at the end of season 5, after Sam and Diane buy their house. Warning for smut, but also for a considerable amount of fluff.

Try Again Tomorrow reviews
Set right after 'Simon Says' in Season 5. After Diane drags him to Finch-Royce's hotel until the therapist changes his diagnosis, Sam navigates his thoughts about it, and about them. Rated T for language, but very mild.

Her Waterloo reviews
A little scene that could have followed Sumner's Return in Season 2. After the bar closes, Sam and Diane discuss War and Peace. Sort of. (contains mild spoilers to War and Peace, in case you haven't read/watched but plan to).

But Mostly Fire reviews
Where else was there for him to go but back to that place? The place where his thighs were covered by her skirt, and her weight on his lap felt equal amounts comfort and fire. But mostly fire. - Tag ending for Don Juan Is Hell in Season 4. After Diane accidentally pulls the knob from the door, the tension in the room is overwhelming. Rated M for, well, a lot of M stuff.

Give Me A Ring (Again) Sometime reviews
A girl walks into a bar, six-ish months later, and everything comes full circle. Post season 5 finale. AU, as I have basically discarded 6 whole years of Cheers. I hope you'll enjoy. Happy holidays, everyone!

Bathroom Love Song reviews
Takes place during Fear Is My Co-Pilot in season 4. I couldn't help but notice Sam watching Jack and Diane at the bar and imagine his thoughts as well as a different turn of events in the episode.
