Author has written 9 stories for NCIS, and Merlin.

Recently I noticed a few people had accessed my profile. Sorry, I had nothing here so I thought I'd better add a touch of information...

I hail from Canada and in my real life I am a PhD level Psychologist. Yep, that's DR. LovesAngst to you, really! :)

My pen name says it all, I am a big fan of angst, which might seem strange given I listen to real troubles all day. I tend to be more of a thinker and less of a feeler, reading angst helps me balance myself a bit better I think. I love reading and writing about very intense emotion. As a psychologist and a writer, I think I am in a unique position to be able to draw strong emotion from my readership as well. Some people enjoy it, some do not :)

NCIS--I love Gibbs and his barely-held emotions. Perhaps I relate? In particular I love episodes and fanfic in which Gibbs' softer feelings for others (especially for Tony) are brought to the surface. I had a similar love affair years ago with Mulder and Scully (Mulder-angst especially) and read Bones fanfic for the Booth angst and occasionally Numb3rs fanfic for Don angst (love his relationship with Charlie). Most recently I am loving Elementary and would kill for some Sherlock angst about Watson.

Merlin--a few summers ago Merlin (a BBC series) was aired in Canada. I love the characters and the actors who play them. The relationship that built between Merlin and Arthur is a delight...so, naturally I torture tham in my mind with some angst!

Finally, I really love feedback. I read and reply to each piece and do take reader's opinions into account.

Ta.

Feedback please. :)

Yours,

LovesAngst

Arthur had finally found a use for Merlin's fumbling, bumbling, noisy way. Although he'd never let on, Camelot's prince had been rather impressed with himself. That was before he lost Merlin.
