Poll: I have a question about story organization preferences from the perspective of a reader. As if right now, I envision my H50 stories in the Three Times/The Day After 'verse as a series of multi-chapter episodes, each with a conclusion (unlike my Lure chapter fic which is clearly a serial). If I post additional stories to an existing fic, it gets really long for a series of relatively bite-sized stories. If I post as separate stories it makes it hard to follow/find the stories in sequence. Feel free to PM me if you have any better ideas. Thanks! Vote Now!
Author has written 6 stories for As the World Turns, and Hawaii Five-0.
First of all, for anyone who has read, commented, and/or patiently awaited updates on Simple Gifts: (another) HUGE THANK YOU. I still have a lot (as in notebooks-full) of Simple Gifts notes including storylines, vignettes, nearly-written chapters awaiting their place in the timeline, and fluffy flashbacks looking for an excuse to be remembered. So I really believe the best is yet to come. I'm still really excited to get through to the end of the plotted arc (Christmas 2011)- I've always personally wanted to see where Luke ends up as a grown up played out. So, yes, I'm going to finish Simple Gifts someday. Really!
For anyone who is new to my stories, I'm a long-time shipper of couples including Beth/Lujack, Starbuck/Apollo, Janeway/Chakotay, Xena/Gabrielle, Benson/Stabler, Otalia, Tiva, and McAbby. I discovered fanfiction and the term "UST" through Mulder and Scully, though I was never more than a marginal X-Files fan. I've read a lot in most of those fandoms (plus, of course, the many Potter configurations), but have written (so far) only for my original OTP, LuRe (Luke Snyder/Reid Oliver) and for my second big crush, McDanno (Steve McGarrett and Danny Williams from Hawaii Five-0). I also still have a Kurtofsky idea brewing. Most recently, I've been bitten by the Stormpilot bug. I'm not quite shipping yet, but I've lost count of the number of times I've watched that lip bite and those flirty eyes, so I'll take a big helping of Pilot regardless of who he gets paired up with!
I'm a firm believer that romance is as much between the ears as between the legs, so my focus will always be on relationships (not just between the protagonists), inner monologues, fluff, innuendo, and humor. I'm also obsessed with weaving together canonical trivia with real-life current events and settings, and especially love backstory. Hopefully that comes across in my stories.
Anyway, I'm babbling. My LuRe ramblings, episode guide, videos, and more can be found at Otherwise, there will definitely be more fic coming - for LuRe, McDanno, and maybe other fandoms at some point.
As always, thanks for reading! And if you see something you like, let me know – encouragement is very much appreciated!
