Author has written 14 stories for Middleman, Arrow, and Captain America.

Fan of unlimited coffee, great books, eclectic music, wicked humor and spa days. Warning: Do not make me decaffeinate. You would not like me when I decaffeinate. Otherwise, mostly harmless.

This is where I write for fun, not profit. Fanfic is a pay it forward deal, as far as I'm concerned. I chuck in what little I'm capable of doing because so many others have taken the time to provide material I've gotten to enjoy. When we all contribute, we all profit.

I've written for the Middleman (MM/WW) and on ff-net, I'm currently writing Arrow, Avengers and Captain America fan fiction.

Transformative Works Policy:

I have this here to save time for people. I’ve had problems with PM notifications getting to me promptly (my spam filter apparently considers anything from a fanfic site to be a delicacy and loves to eat them) so hopefully, this will help. I’ve also been asked about stuff I didn’t even think to consider originally, so I'm adding all of that. If there's something I've missed, let me know.

For writing: If anything I’ve done has inspired someone, I’m flattered and thrilled. Please let me know; I've love to see it and maybe we can link back to each other. Please, no remixes, sequels or prequels without asking me first. I’ve got stuff that’s not yet finished and a sackful of prompts I’d love to answer, even as slowly as I write. Obviously, please don’t republish anything of mine as your own work. (Why anyone would want to, I’ve no idea – a monkey on a laptop can do better than I can, most days, but there it is.) Also, if you’re using a co-authored work, please check with my co-author for his or her policy. I only speak for myself.

If you want to make any other sort of transformative work (podfic, fanart, illustrations, wallpaper, banners, music mixes, .gifs, translations, book covers, videos or anything else I haven’t thought of and didn’t even realize was out there) based off something I've done: Have at it! All I ask is that you tell me about it so I can gush and enjoy and thank you appropriately and try to do something for you, too, if I can and if you want. Save for music mixes, I can’t do any of it at all, so it really does mean a lot to me. In fact, I will love you forever (or at least until Tuesday) for anything graphic-y, from fanart to .gifs to videos, so yes, please, are you kidding me, of course! If I haven’t included something on the list, it’s because I didn’t know/think about it until someone asked me about it, so just ask.

A mention and/or a link back to the source work, too, would be great. I’ll be happy to do the same for you, if you want.

So in general: have at it! Just please tell me and tell people where the inspiration came from, is all I ask.

I can be contacted by PM here, at nocturnalrites at charter dot net or on tumblr as nocturnalwrites and I’m always happy to chat.

All cover art and wallpapers for the Felicity and the First Avenger series are by the incredibly talented and lovely VeilaKs. Please check out her gallery at http://veilaks.deviantart.com. You'll be glad you did; her work is GORGEOUS.

Felicity and the First Avenger : Reel Extras (Arrow - Captain America) reviews
Drabbles and short stories in response to prompts made for scene requests for the main Felicity and the First Avenger story.
