Favorite Quotes: "There's no such thing as autobiography; there's only art and lies."
"And there the Wicked Witch stayed for a good long time." - "And did she ever come out?" - "Not yet."
"Engage!"
"The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed."

I appreciate well-written, thoughtful fan fiction. I look for stories that demonstrate a grasp of the original characters and do not detract from the original book/show/source. I've only just decided to add to the fanfic universe and greatly appreciate the comments that I've received so far.

I am in search of a beta but have no idea how to go about finding one. I'm looking for someone who can point out style and character inconsistencies.

Another post-ep for "We Don't Need Another Hero." Jane notices a couple of additions Maura's made to her house. She is not pleased. A little goofier than most of my stories.

On a haphazard visit to a bar for "deviants," wealthy Catholic-school-girl Glinda sees a performance that will alter her life. Story is character-based, rather than world-based.

The Secret Diary of Bass Isles by TheFutilitarian reviews
