Author has written 31 stories for Bones, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, Firefly, Merlin, and Teen Wolf.

Hello, I'm Downside-Left.

Uh.

I never know what to write here.

Well, these days I write mostly for Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Merlin and (hopefully soon, if I can ever get it together) Avengers. I tend to write slash, although I do support non-slash (mostly only if it's canon, and even then it has to be TRULY HEART-WRENCHINGLY EPIC to gain my full support; it helps if said hetero-pairings will aid and abet my slash-pairings (Lydia/Jackson, I am looking at you, my dears) or if they're just so obvious and natural that I can find no quarrel with them ever (Ron/Hermione for the win!)). My current OTPs are Stiles/Derek or Sterek (Teen Wolf) and Dean/Cas or Destiel (Supernatural). Don't try to tell me those aren't canon. They totally are. *shifty eyes*

Uh, anyway. Updates happen very sporadically, since I work six days a week (averaging 7.5 hour days), and on the other day I'm mostly sleeping, doing laundry, and reminding my family and friends that I still exist. BUT, if inspiration strikes and I can write it all down before said inspiration shrivels up and blows away, it will eventually find its way here.

So that's it, I guess. Have a read through my fic, and check out my favorite stories/authors. I promise you, they're all wonderful!!!
