Author has written 20 stories for Dark Angel, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Roswell.
I am an elementary special education school teacher living in Las Vegas, NV, who is addicted to reading and writing fics, and I'm a total review junkie- after all that's the only salary fic writers get.
My favorite fics to write are Dark Angel (I LOVE Max/Alec, although I'm a fan of Max/Zack as well. I don't think I'm capable of writing Max/Logan- as time goes by he irritates me more and more; when the show first aired he was my fav, but it turns out that at the time I was totally dating my own Logan. Now that I've smartened up, I can't stand the git), Roswell [I used to only be into CC, but now I'm branching into UC- Max doesn't always deserve Liz, and sometimes Michael or Kyle deserve something better than what they wind up with (even though I do love Maria) though I'm usually pretty set on Alex/Isabel, and I'm trying to work on Doctor Who (always Rose though the version of the Doctor may change), Beetlejuice (though I'm afraid I really have no idea what I'm doing on that one), and Labyrinth (which I never thought I'd get the vibe for well enough to be able to write, but an idea popped into my head and I'm going with it anyway).
Here's some info on me :)
Favorite TV shows- Dark Angel and someone NEEDS TO START AIRING RERUNS AGAIN, Moonlight (imo one of the most romantic shows ever, so of course it's been cancelled, but at least SciFi and CW are showing reruns and btw popping McLoughlin into a new series is SO not making up for losing this series; I wish the TV execs would just man up and admit they made a HUGE mistake and put the show back together already), Roswell (cancelled), Doctor Who (especially seasons/eps with Rose, loved 9th and 10th Drs), One Tree Hill (when Lucas and Peyton were there, cancelled), Vampire Diaries, Smallville (sometimes), Merlin, Legend of the Seeker, Kyle XY (cancelled- needs to be rerunning), Pushing Daisies (another unique and fun idea so of course it has been done away with), Supernatural (cancelled- major trauma), Life Unexpected, White Collar, Psych, Burn Notice, BBC shows (Are You Being Served, etc.- basically all cancelled); you know what I've realized? A lot of my favs have been cancelled- 1) I should have a lot more free time on my hands, but I keep watching the reruns, 2) query- is me saying that I love a show similar to saying that a married couple is Hollywood's golden couple? (IOW, death?)
I also have never grown up (according to my dad), so I love cartoons and kiddie shows- Phineas and Ferb, Kim Possible (cancelled but still airing reruns), and I occasionally catch Hannah Montana and Suite Life
Favorite Movies- changes but right now it's Jane Austen flicks (except the one that is actually about her and has Mr. Tumnus in it); both Narnia movies; The Mirror Has Two Faces (some scenes are just heartbreaking and the end is totally feel-good and I usually love happy endings); Twilight (both although New Moon was much higher caliber, but still love Twilight and absolutely CANNOT wait for the new movie to come out. I haven't made it to a movie in months-haven't seen Avatar- but there is no way I'm missing this one), Stardust (totally STUCK on it)
Favorite Genre- I love supernatural/sci-fi and sometimes fantasy, but they HAVE to have romance in them or I get tired of them after a while
Favorite Music- Dido, Majandra Delfino, Michael Buble, Chris Rice, occasionally Josh Groban, Sarah McLachlan without a doubt, Steve Carlson, Jason Manns is pretty impressive, and if you've never heard him Jensen Ackles is amazing (though I might be slightly biased), Natalie (or is it Amy) Grant, Casting Crowns
Favorite Actors/Actresses (in no particular order)- I'll pretty much watch anything with someone from "Roswell" in it at least once, Jensen Ackles (currently completely hooked on), Brendan Fraser, Sandra Bullock (usually though some of her more recent roles have seemed a bit desperate), Keira Knightley (usually, though don't get me started on the third Pirates movie- all I can say is thank heavens they're making another one to cover that blunder), Jessica Alba, and I usually like Claire Danes
Favorite Books- Twilight series (Stephanie Meyer), Harry Potter series, Narnia series, I'm getting into the Left Behind series, some of the books where they're screwing with the original books (like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), the Hell books (Prom Night is Hell, Vacations are Hell, etc.) are frequently fun, and basically I love book series because I hate it when anything really, really good comes to an end (in fact, if it's really good I'll read it through and then turn back to the beginning and read it again) and book series last longer than just one book
Favorite Fanfics- Dark Angel (usually Malec- which by the way I was the 1st person to use that term according to reliable sources, so patent pending ;), Roswell, Harry Potter (usually Dramione), Labyrinth (prefer Sara/Jareth), and more and more Beetlejuice (love BJ/Lydia pairings) usually based on the cartoon. I guess I agree with DA's Mia- what's the fun of being in love if it's easy- could explain a lot about my personal life :P
I love doing anything with music, acting, reading/writing, playing with my kitties (diabetic senior cream colored with gorgeous eyes tomcat and beautiful, soft, pure black baby girl- I've always wanted a pure black cat and one of my bf's got her for me :), traveling (BIGGIE with me- it's the only thing that keeps me somewhat sane), watching my favorite shows, and checking things off my mile-long To Do list. Despite how very VERY badly I need to, I haven't made it to the gym in over a year and a half, but hopefully as things slow down (maniacal laughter floats from room behind me) I'll be able to make it in soon- I actually really do like exercising. And I'm beginning to learn how to do a decent job of baking (still have no clue how to cook), which considering my previous gym statement seems rather contradictory. Oh, and during my free time, I've started the Doc program in Special Education- so if you don't hear from me for a while, that's why. Well, that and the fact that my family keeps getting hit with major health issues (diabetes, angioplasty, spiking cholesterol levels, Graves disease, hypertension, low/high blood pressure, multiple types of cancer, post menopausal depression, bels palsy, another death, you know- the basics, etc.) Sorry, if I don't joke about it it gets too intense.
Speaking of which, right now I am absolutely hating RL. I had no idea how difficult dealing with fam issues would be until I got thrown into them. I had no idea just how intense the Doctoral program would be until I foolishly jumped into it. And I had no idea what bad timing was until I bought a house in the middle of both- still haven't managed to unpack my boxes and it's been almost a year, but I'm only home for an hour before work and an hour after school/work before I fall into bed. At least I managed to get rid of my bipolar schizophrenic roomate who didn't think she should have to pay her half of the bills. So, those are my excuses for why it's been so long since I've updated anything. And my complete obsession with reading and writing fics is why I'm thinking about trying to ignore everything else, quitting my job, selling my house and letting the new owners have all of the possessions that are still in boxes, withdrawing from school, crawling into a little tiny hidden hole with wireless internet, and going back to what I truly love anyway. So, thanks for letting me get that off my chest- ranting helps :)
I have one rule for writing- I will never drop a fic. Once I have started writing, I will finish it. It may take me a while (and it has- sorry :( and I might get sidetracked, but I guarantee that I will finish it.
Btw- if anyone knows of some good local (remember Las Vegas) Dark Angel/Labyrinth/Beetlejuice(and/or)Roswell support groups, I'd love to join. It's sometimes hard to find people who share the same interests.
