You have entered a dark and eerily quiet place, where shadows move on their own accord and invisible fingers tickle the back of your neck. You best grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and hunch in front of the fire while heavy footsteps approach you from the surrounding black.
This is not a place to fall asleep.
There is a bucket of brain-bleach, and a tin of snicker-doodles on the mantle for you to use.
The stories here Will harm you.
Welcome to my humble lair.

1. In early April I will not have access to the internet for at least a week. I will edit this post as soon as I arrive.
2. Rolling in the Deep and The Last Days are finally chugging along. I suffered a severe loss of passion and an inability to write anything decent.
Rolling in the Deep News:
1. To any who are interested, every time I upload a chapter, the readers can ask one question of any character of their choosing, and that character will have their response posted in the upcoming chapter. (One character, one question, per reader, per chapter. In other words, after every chapter you can ask one character a brand new question. And that character *not the writer* will answer.) I'm still short on inspiration, and I need some motivation. I want to see if this works. If your interested, go ahead and PM me now, and you'll hear from whoever you want to talk to at the end of the following chapter.
The Last Days News:
1. Morgoth has taken over my fanfic. The Dark Lord is furious over the fact that up until a few weeks ago he was not at the centre of my attention. In accordance with his will, I have done a major plotline overhaul to meet his
2. In my first chapter of LD I said there would be no Dark Lord hanky-panky in this fic. Morgoth has made a liar out of me. It will not be graphic. I don't normally write things like that. It makes me very uncomfortable, but there will definitely be some...um...mentions of it. Well it's a bit more than mentioned, but it's not ridiculous.
3. I suppose I'll open the Character Q&A for LD as well? If anyone is interested. The same rules apply: ONE question, per reader, per chapter. So if anyone feels like shooting me a question now, they are more than welcome, and the character to whom its addressed will have an answer come the next update. :D

(A crack-ish fic but maybe not... now way over 10 chapters long... )
chapter 10: A very long chapter, and I do mean l o n g g g g! Starts with a brooding Maia, a pair of gloves, an illusion, a gift, a lot of conversation, some lanterns, a bit of music, dancing, and a rock fight...and then it keeps going...

Cruelty of Fate
Currently going through a much needed revision
chapters will be be re-loaded soon
Things I probably shouldn't touch until the list above grows a little shorter. But I have no self control so... who knows.
Angel of Music:
He was a beautiful singer, a brilliant songwriter, a genius of the guitar, and a gifted musician ahead of his time, but few will ever know his name. Lost in time, imprisoned by malevolent beings, and slowly stripped of life, Alexander Keys was the artist, the legend, the man who could have been and never was.
(Inspired by Alice of Human Sacrifice, Time in a Bottle, Looking out the Backdoor, Carry on my Wayward Son, and Who'll stop the Rain-- I highly recommend them to all, but please do not ask how those songs inspired this...I have no idea.)
chapter 1: Out on the Corner (why attracting attention to one's self is never a good thing)
chapter 2: Cards and Moonlight (A continuation of my previous thesis with a character's drunken idiocy thrown in...)
chapter 3: The Eaves of the Pompadour (It's a lovely hotel, with a 24/7 buffet, grand ballroom, decadent suites, and lots of angel motif...)
chapter 4: Hark the Herald Angel Beckons
chapter 5: The Price of Happiness
chapter 6: Curiosity Saved the Cat
chapter 7: Music at the Midnight Hour
chapter 8: Angel of Music
chapter 9: Backwards Traveler (Istanbul is called Constantinople now, duh duh duh- Istanbul by They Might be Giants is a delight to listen to.)
chapter 10: Held-fast by the Hands of Death (yeah there's smut somewhere in this story- I think it's in the future, or the past?)
chapter 11 Denied by Death (bleeding to death is cold...)
chapter 12: Any Road (provided it leads to recovery)
chapter 13: The Muse and her Song
chapter 14: If Time Could be Kept in a Bottle (OH! This is where all the shmut is hiding. It's clean! It's clean! But it's there...)
chapter 15: Ever Patient Hunters (A lesson on why Weeping Angel romance stories need Doctorly intervention if they have any hope of blah-blah ending.)
chapter 16: In the Arms of an Angel ( A.K.A My brave and failed attempt to terrify the dark out of a Lonely Assassin)
chapter 17: The End of the Song (The chorus was growing a tad bit annoying.)
When the Doves Cry
A collection of short stories that are Weeping Angel centric...
Petals: A Weeping Archangel that loiters in a graveyard watches life wane and end. Always he had a flower in his hand, and dying blossoms at his feet...
Christmas of Slaves: Trapped in the confines of a mansion ruled by merciless angels, a few humans decide to risk death for a chance to recapture a piece of their lives.
Hark the Herald Angels Weep: A Weeping Angel regrettably Quantum-locked outside an apartment finds herself reduced to being an impromptu holiday decoration for the amusement of a family of ingrate humans.
Lottery Ticket: Low on cash one man snags a list of lottery numbers and seeks the aid of a predatory alien in what is quite possibly history's most daring get-rich schemes. Bartering for a Weeping Angel's services is easer said than done...
Who Lost the Game: Humans colonize a new planet, and their happy lives are quickly noticed by opportunistic predators. Before the military gets involved and the planet's new colonies become war zones, a human that is both politically connected, pacifistic, and very likely psychopathic decides to propose a treaty with the Angels. How bad could a game of Tag be?
Ensnared: An Angel too weak to kill and to weak to flee, has been imprisoned on a train car, and she has no idea where they're taking her or her brood. Fit to kill and desperate, the Angel's need could not have been more dire. Already she can hear them screaming, hear them crying; her precious cherubs being starved and beaten.
Happy reading, or running away- which ever you please, for if you pour through my stories some mental scaring will ensue.
