Author has written 42 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Angel, CSI, Gilmore Girls, and Castle.Began my fanfic writing with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Eventually worked my way to Angel the Series and now to CSI:. Don't ask me how I got from the Jossverse to Zuikerville, but here is where I reside. I'm not really that good a writer. I just do it for the fun that's inherent in it. But, for those that are curious as to my mindset, these are my favorite stories that I've penned so far.
Falling into You - My first fanfic. Was originally supposed to be a stand-alone but I got many requests to continue the story. So, I did. I didn't really realize what I was doing at the time. I just went where the words took me. Luckily, it took me to a satisfying ending.
Where Angels Tread - The continuation of Falling into You. This eventually petered out partly because the shows had gone in completely different directions by then and partly because my heart wasn't into it anymore. I still have it all plotted out. It's just the matter of finishing it or finding someone to finish it for me using my notes. I think I might have thought too much about this one, hence it being less fun than Falling into You. Still, it was more plot driven than Falling into You, so it still remains a favorite in that I cut my teeth in handling plot with this one. Plus, I left it on a hell of a teaser.
Unforgettable - I love this one because I went into Spike's past without reinterpreting what had already been done with him in the show. Call it a lost story, but to this day I get a feeling of satisfaction when I reread it. Whenever your own writing can bring a tear to your eye, something must have gone right. If I were to pick one fanfic to represent my writing in a nutshell, this would be it.
A Day in the Life - My first CSI fic. While I wasn't sure if I was keeping the character voices true to the show, I'm glad that the reviews thus far are telling me that I wasn't that far off. I'm particularly pleased with how the diner and hallway scenes played out, the former for Sara's development and the latter for Grissom's. This was also supposed to be a stand-alone, but once again I got numerous requests to continue the story. So, I did. Here's hoping I don't think too much this time and just have fun with it while it lasts.
The Desperate Kingdom of Love - While I've done first person before, I've never done it on this scale. The piece follows Grissom through what I envision to be the remaining run of the show, so you're not quite sure when events are happening. Sure, they're happening chronologically, but exactly where in the show's run is anyone's guess. I'm particularly pleased on portraying Grissom's thoughts. I believe that I've stayed true to the character while tweaking him in a believable fashion. And, to think, the idea for this story came from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. It was one phrase, but damn if it didn't motivate me to do this piece.
- Thus far, my most satisfying CSI fic. I tapped into something special when I wrote this one. So much so, the ending still gets to me. I think this is the only piece I've ever written other than Unforgettable where I'm brought to the verge of tears, especially when I think of Warrick having that final line. In all honesty, I was at a point where I just didn't feel like writing CSI fic anymore since the quality of my work had dropped off considerably, with each new piece receiving fewer and fewer reviews. So, I thought, what would be the best way to end my CSI fanfic tenure? And, then I thought, why not write something that would feel like an ending for the series. And, sure enough, I was able to do that. Fortunately, upon finishing this piece, I found myself revitalized and began writing once more. Unfortunately, I now compare each new piece to this one, and in the corner of my mind, I know I'll never be able to top this one. This was my swan song. It just came a little early is all. As an aside, you won't find this fic on FF.net since it didn't adhere to their formatting guidelines. But for those interested, you can click on the link to be taken to it.
