Why does this seem harder than giving birth?

My day job is saving the world. (I'm a little known super hero.) And then in stolen moments, I come up with fantastical ideas about imaginary people's love lives. Go figure. What a strange place the mind is.

Current obsession: Adorable short men who roll their Rs.

Gush! "All I Have to Do" won for BEST HETERO at http://deathlyhallowsawards.blogspot.com/. I made the link to the Deathly Hallows Awards page my "homepage" here. Thanks to whomever nominated the story and to all who voted. You made my day!!

New Reasons to Gush! "In Answer" and my two Edith and Anthony stories picked up awards at the Highclere Awards. http://downtonabbeyfanawards.forumup.co.uk/index.php?mforum=downtonabbeyfanawards

Go Team Edith!

A Hole in the River by vcatrashfiend reviews
Someone takes the road less travelled, and the end result puts two rivals on equal footing. A story fraught with lost identity, surprise invitations, and male posturing! *Reviews mean a happy and motivated writer!*

Folie à Deux by DailyProphetEditor reviews
Sequel to 'Goldilocks and the Four Heads of Houses'. Valentine's Day is over, and everybody is convinced that Minerva and Severus are a match made by Merlin himself. The only problem is... they don't seem to think so. Or do they?

Vital reviews
It was the word 'vital' that had beset him. Yes, yes, everyone who knew her considered her a vital, lively woman. But Higgins now felt that she was vital to him. A necessary, life-affirming thing that he was meant to... Mine is, most simply, a story of sudden realizations and slow declarations. Come on in!

Yes, I Will reviews
Marcey had called him later. Of course she had. And Greg had trusted that she would. Although certainly, not just anyone would have known what those three quick flashes of her tail lights meant as she drove away.  But the flashes had said, 'Yes. I will.'

Still Being Young reviews
Still being young, Sam let herself believe the world was possible, because of something as simple as the hand he'd placed on her arm and had not moved. A story that begins as Foyle comes home from America. A new chapter at last? Can it be? Is it worth reading? Anyone who still cares about this story has been left waiting. How long will Foyle keep Sam doing the same?

Rare reviews
Can the present be something neither the past or future could? And should it? This is my Anthony. Although I love him dearly, he is prone to getting things backwards. Thinking what should be said when he should say it instead. Or, saying the wrong thing completely. But that's alright. Edith is her own woman now – or trying hard to be – and she doesn't mind driving.

Quitting the Hurt reviews
It isn't Foyle's attachment to the past that is the problem. It's the hurt. The solution? Sam hopes it's her. Chapter 18. That last bit. Thank you! "I don't suppose you could blush on cue?" Christopher suggested.

When Half Gods Go reviews
Something had changed. Mary agreed with Lou on that.  But she wouldn't say just what it was. She wouldn't bring up the pity-inducing men she had dated. Or the nights spent unhappily alone. Besides, she was not the only one who was different now. COMPLETE!

Married with Complications reviews
An explanation of things Edith and Anthony. This goes with my other Edith/Anthony story, "Least Shall Be Loved." And it is yummy and sexy and conflicted. Or it is trying very hard to be. I can say, it is short. Chapter 3/3: "That's disgusting."
