Author has written 36 stories for Glee, Being Human, and Sleepy Hollow.

GrittyRe-boot (formerly megagleek and igivegoodheadwounds ): Baker, Blogger, Journalist, Comic, Lover of all things glee. Resident angstaholic.

As you can see I'm pretty obsessed with glee, and just as obsessed with writing fanfic for it. I do like other shows, and will probably branch out eventually, but glee fits my writing style so well it's insane. So without further adieu here are some (admittedly pretty boring) facts about myself.

My number one geek hobby suprisingly isn't fanfic, it's cosplay. Me and my friends are mad about comics and you can usually spot us at the cons dressed as various DC characters.

I am a stand-up comedian (amateur)...

A Baker, Decorater, Confectioner (professional)...

And an internet reporter (freelance) Although I haven't written an ariticle in forever.

I also love Pushing Daisies, Firefly and Dead Like Me and was heartbroken when they got cancelled. Aside from that I love off-color comedy shows like It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia, Spaced and Flight of the Conchords, and I have a big thing for adult Cartoons like The Venture Brothers, Archer, Futurama, The Boondocks, South Park and to a far lesser extent Family Guy and American Dad.

I spend unhealthy amounts of time on the internet every day.

I feel like Nicolas Sparks with the amount of angst I write here, I think out of 30 stories only one of them has absolutely no crying. I'm an angstaholic, I just can't get enough angstahol. But I bring the funny every once in awhile too.

I'm sort of a closet gleek. My friends know that I like the show but they have no idea just how much I like it.
