Author has written 14 stories for Chuck, and Big Bang Theory.

I'm an idiot. This problem manifests itself in many ways. One of them is my addiction to fan fiction. It's a sickness really.

Now, do I scribble my thoughts on electronic paper and post it on the Internet? Sometimes, is that a crime? Are you judging me? Er... I mean yeah, it's been known to happen. Despite what the fanfiction.net usage guidelines state, I am not an aspiring writer. I'm a Senior IT Admin for a large worldwide corporation. Yes, I have nerdish tendencies. I never worked at the Buy More, it was 3D Computer Corporation. I didn't go to Stanford. It was another distinguished private university. I didn't get kicked out 12 credits short of graduation. It was 26. I didn't cheat, I ran out of money. I am not Chuck, there is no intersect in my brain. (At least that's the story if you are a member of Fulcrum.)

Just a note for those of you who keep checking this space:

I really appreciate all the support for my stories and for Real Life. I honestly don't know if it will get finished or not. I've had some health issues that have apparently been building up for a while. While I didn't realize it, it had been affecting my ability to write.

I've started to recover at least a little and I'm thankful for that. It's allowed me to assist my good friend Malamoo with one of her stories. If you are a fan of mine you should go check out Chuck vs. The Second Chance. It's a good story and there's a fair amount of my writing peaking around the edges.

As for Real Life, well a decision on that will have to wait until real life starts behaving. Hopefully, I'll find the right mix of health/creativity/Chuck love to give it the ending all of you deserve.

Thanks all, take care, you're aces!

Sarah vs 22 Minutes with Carina reviews
22 Minutes can be a tortuously long time when you're partnered with Carina. A missing moment from canon and a companion to Malamoo's Chuck vs. The Not so Ordinary Life. You don't need to have read that to enjoy this, but you should anyway.

Chuck vs The Doldrums reviews
Chuck used to dread the missions, now he's starting to dread the time between the missions. Having a fake girlfriend can be emotionally exhausting, especially when you care about her like she's a real girlfriend.

Chuck vs The Condom reviews
Chuck vs. The Colonel, just started and Chuck and Sarah are waking up in their motel room. What would have happened if Chuck’s emergency condom had still been in his wallet? How would the episode have been different?

Some people from Sarah's life are tired of Sarah denying her feelings for Chuck. They've had enough and it's time for an intervention. Just something a little fun.

Sarah receives her first ever stocking. She's slightly overwhelmed by the gesture. This is a story about how the stocking changes her Christmases forever. It's mostly fluff. 100% Charah.
