Author has written 10 stories for Tin Man.

Profile short version:

Tin Man - yay! Single continuum, interfic references.

Cain/Glitch slashy slashy. YMMV. No PWP because I am bad at writing about willies.

Seriously: Cain/Glitch.

I have a big brain. Words come out of it.

Review me! I loff you.

Profile TL;DR version:

I mostly write one-shot stories and scenes(imagine an asterisk here, which there would be if ffdotnet didn't have a tantrum every time I try to insert one), and I work in a single universe, so that the stories can complement one another and I can sneak in cross-references (which still amuse me hugely because I have a mental age of about nine and am easily pleased).

Also, it should be noted that I write slash. Specifically Cain/Glitch, but I deal with the emotional relationship and seldom with any of the physical stuff. This isn't out of prudishness; I am quite simply useless at writing sex scenes and would much rather expend my energy on plot than subject anyone to my feeble descriptions of people grinding unimaginatively away or trying to think of suitable descriptions of character genitalia. There are plenty of writers out there who are considerably more talented at describing bedroom antics - seek them out.

That's not to say that everything I write is Cain/Glitch-centric but, like I say, single universe, so it's tacitly understood that if anyone's going to get together, it's going to be those two. So if you were looking for Cain/DG, Cain/Raw, Glitch/Ambrose (and that always makes my head hurt), or DG/Glitch, you may want to put on your shunning hat right about now.

Other stuff - not that you needed to know: I'm English, in my late thirties, a biologist by education but not by profession, and I use far too many adjectives. Seriously. If I get started on something descriptive, you may want to pack a lunch.

Also, I like reviews. Everyone likes reviews. Lengthy discussion about plot holes, Outer Zone culture, Azkadelia's chest-monkeys and my inability to use the common household semi-colon are welcome.

(likewise this would be another asterisk, but see above because ffdotnet is a meandering spleen pie) Can you tell I wrote this profile before I got going on Tin Horses & Paper Planes? Three years, kids. Three. Okay, two years and seven months. Commitment: I has it.

A year after the eclipse, Wyatt returns to find that all is not well with the Royal Family, and there's a genius in need of a Tin Man's care.

c plus i over a plus b reviews
A problem, where 'a' equals 7 and 'c' is a Constance. Yes, the title is a bad maths pun. Sue me. Ambrose's parents knew he was different. They just didn't know how different. Also, you should probably read 'No Place' first...

When you're a headcase, one place is pretty much like the last place.

Someone thinks they look good in a uniform. Total fluff, with a side of very mild slash.
