Author has written 25 stories for Teen Wolf, and Bates Motel.

Hi there!

Things to know about me:

1. I am fully aware that "alot" isn't a word in the english language. It should be "a lot". I completely understand this, but I refuse to accept this because "alot" looks better to me. I'm sorry if that is a problem, but I ask you to respect my beliefs on this. Thank you.

2. I always did well in English at school, but somehow, I managed to get through my entire education without fully grasping the proper use of a semi colon; Despite this, I actually use them quite alot. (This is not an invitation to try and teach me the proper use of a semi colon. Let me use it how I want.)

3. I both love and hate writing smut. I love it because... well, of course I do. ;) But I hate it, because "erection" is such an unpleasant word, but it's unavoidable unless you're willing to throw the word "cock" in there, and I'm just not That Girl. I also always end up with an online thesaurus open, looking for synonyms for the word "thrust" and I always wonder how my life came to this.

4. I'm THE WORST REVIEWER EVER. I'm the most hypocritical person ever, because I hate when people follow my story without leaving me a review, but I do the exact same thing. I'm trying to change. Really, I am. You gotta believe me.

5. I LOVE reviews. They bring joy to my small life. I try to response individually to every one that that get, especially the detailed ones because it means alot that people would take the time to leave me their thoughts. NEVER STOP! Your approval means everything to me.

Things I love right now, things I've loved in the past, and things I will always love: Lost, Teen Wolf, Bates Motel, The 100, Pretty Little Liars, The Shannara Chronicles, The Walking Dead, The X-Files, Bones, Merlin, Reign, Hannibal, Jessica Jones, Penny Dreadful, Sherlock, American Horror Story, OITNB and writing absurdly long author's notes.

Happy Tuesday reviews
Norma Bates didn't like Valentine's day. Until Alex, it had never been a day that held much appeal, invoking more bad memories than good. Leave it to Alex Romero to change all that...

At a boring charity dinner with WPB's wealthy elite, Norma struggles to maintain her composure while Alex whispers all manner of scandalous things in her ear... "You look beautiful in this dress."

Jealousy reviews
Norma mistakes Alex's concern for Janine as something more and lets her jealousy get the best of her. "I've just never seen you jealous before."

Why Me? reviews
Alex gets a call from a near-hysterical Norma after Bob Paris sends his thugs to her house to try and get the flashdrive back. "There were men..."

Birthday Cake reviews
Alex realises that no-one has ever made Norma Bates feel special on her birthday, and he endeavours to change that. Warning - Unadulterated fluff! (Title is from the Rihanna song.

Fragile Bird reviews
Alex is everything Norma had ever wanted in a husband, so we can't she stop manipulating and antagonising him? Why can't she let go and be with him the way he wants to be with her? Trigger warning - Chap. 1 has mild references to past sexual violence. Future chapters may refer to this more implicitly. Will not be the main focus of the story though.

Always Felt Safe reviews
3x02 one shot. "So, erm..." She floundered for a second. "I guess I'll see you around?" He held up his hands as if to hug her, and she panicked. Was he going for a hug? They had never hugged before. They'd barely touched...

I Need Your Shirt reviews
After questioning Norma about Annika Johnson's death, Alex realises he needs her shirt as evidence, and Norma responds with her usual calm and reasonable reaction. ;) "You want it so bad?" She sneered at him, immensely enjoying his discomfort, shimmying the stained shirt off her shoulders and balling it up in her hands. "Here. Take it."

You Gotta Remember to Breathe reviews
"Everything bad that had happened to Norma Bates had happened on a bed. It made sense that she would be dying on a bed now. It had come a full circle." One shot. A re-imagined version of the ending to 4x10. Alex's CPR skills are slightly more efficient...
