Author has written 10 stories for Bones.

UPDATE:

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!

Human on the Inside by Nothing But Bones reviews
-"I want to believe that, too." Brennan struggles with her feelings for Booth, and wonders why he can't read the subtext in her own cryptic confessions. My take on the tag scenes for 'Cinderella' & 'Mayhem on a Cross.' The chapters are self-contained.

The M Rated Magpie's Nest by blc reviews
