Dear Readers,

If you're viewing this then I hope you were led here by a good word or a recommendation.

If you just happened upon me, let me say a few things. I love Brittana. Most of everything I write is Brittana because seriously, OTP feelings. I'm constantly coming up with Brittana ideas. Constantly. Ask my Beta, the ever amazing Blackshield. Her stories are fantastic, especially her one shots. Seriously, go look.

Anyway, I have a tumblr now. It's my pen name, you can click the 'homepage' link there and it'll redirect you there. Well, it's kinda boring, really. I don't have much internet access, so, I'm only ever able to reblog or make crappy text posts from my phone. Every once in a while I post something of interest, I guess.

As for my stories:

Brittany and the Beast is happily in progress! Expect weekly updates.

I have many other Brittana multi-chapter fics and one shots in the works right now. If you like my stories you should at least author alert me, I've always got something coming. It's my favorite way to relax.

Nonsensically,

Penelope Cross
