Author has written 10 stories for Bones.
I'm sorry guys, I know I've been away for a looong time. As you all know, being involved in the fanfic community takes a serious amount of time and commitment. I've been spending a good amount of thought on whether this is an investment that I am able to make. I haven't been able to come to a definitive answer to that question quite yet. Until then, I hope that you all stay in touch. I still talk regularly with many of you, and I love that. Come find me at the following places.

I really do want to start writing again, I just need to figure out how to have balance. I appreciate tips if you have them!
Greetings fellow readers!
My name is Crystal (aka Gryphin) and I am a 31 year old wife and mother. My husband is a web developer in Seattle, so I am very blessed to be able to stay at home with our 3 kids - ages 5, 3, and 1. Unfortunately, as all of you other stay-at-home moms know, being here during the day does not equal time to write! I try and get chapters written and stories read late at night after the little ones are asleep, but I'm often pretty tired by then. But I'm trying to get better! I now have the help of some of the friends I've made here on FF, and you guys keep me going. I've been blessed with a very patient audience and I'm soooo grateful! With a newborn in the house, life is so crazy! My love of writing has had to sit on the back burner a bit.
I'm completely obsessed with Bones. I spend waaay too much time on FF.net, and also on LiveJournal. I read all of the spoilers and think about fic plots pretty much all of the time. Lately, I've been needing to remind myself that I have a real life that requires attention! Its so sad, really... ;-) I'm seriously considering going spoiler free for Season Six. What do you guys think?
I've been reading fanfic for about 10 years now. Back in the beginning, I was (and still am!) a total X-Files fangirl. While I am still a big fan of the series, and I about hyperventilated while anticipating the new movie that came out, I don't read the fic anymore. These days, I am pretty much all Bones. I absolutely love the comedy/drama aspect of the show. And while I have a few choice words for the writers concerning some of the plot holes found in seasons past, I have completely thrilled with how Season 5 played out. I'm so excited for this next year!
I started actually writing my own fanfic for Bones just over a year ago, and I hope that you check it out. I'm a fan of romance and angst. Depending on how I feel at the moment, I may want more of one or the other. But my stories will most likely always end well, because most of all, I enjoy a good love story. I don't do AU or anything that couldn't actually fit into the show. I am truly a canon writer, and I pride myself on being able to transport my readers into the Bones world where they can experience what they wish would actually happen.
I think that the people in this community are amazing and wonderful and I only regret that I don't get to meet and greet each and every one of you! People are always welcome to message me, and I love getting reviews. I try to respond personally to each and every one of them. I am absolutely AMAZED by how many of you take the time to review, favorite, and alert me. It's humbling - truly it is!
I love God, my family, singing, playing bass guitar and clarinet, crafting (particularly quilting, knitting, and scrapbooking), playing video games, Myspace/Facebooking (I would have no friends if not for those sites because I am sometimes terrible at staying in touch!), gadgets, swimming, shopping, high heels and reading/writing Bones fanfic.
I watch Bones, Lie to Me, Castle, House, Lost, and Glee.
You can come visit me over at my LiveJournal. I would be thrilled if you stopped by!
Thanks for coming by to get to know me a little better!
