I reject your reality and substitute my own
Endings are hard. Any chapped-ass monkey with a keyboard can poop out a beginning, but endings are impossible. You try to tie up every loose end, but you never can. The fans are always gonna bitch. There's always gonna be holes. And since it's the ending, it's all supposed to add up to something. I'm telling you, they're a raging pain in the ass.
Killing must feel good to God, too... He does it all the time, and are we not created in His image?
I've been doing some more editing on this massive thing. It's considerably shorter than it was before because I cut a TON of stuff. Mainly my little rant/rambles at the end of the profile. I may repost them and post new ones eventually (probably), but I think I'll end up rotating them out so that they're not all there at once, taking up space.
(Just FYI: the icon is not mine. It's from Batman: Arkham Origins Easter Egg and Lore guide, and which I totally stole from. I'm not claiming any sort of ownership over the image.) (Also - the article link has spoilers for Batman: Arkham Origins)

Facebook Page (dedicated to all things fangirlishly awesome. If you like Supernatural, Doctor Who, Buffy, Sherlock, The Avengers or impossibly gorgeous men - and women - you should totally stop by and like us! I co-admin the page with my best friend Beth):
Aaaand one quick plug for my awesome friend Laura (SlasherrGirl) and her fantastic blog "Ask the Geniuses" She's got the Doctor, Spencer Reid, Sam Winchester, Patrick Jane and Sherlock Holmes in the same TARDIS, travelling the universe together and some of the questions she gets are just awesome. You guys really need to check out this amazingness:
Obviously, I do not own Criminal Minds, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, NCIS, Being Human, The Mentalist, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Batman Begins/The Dark Knight, House, M.D. or Supernatural. Believe me, if I did you'd all be running scared from the mental depravity and the probably uncomfortable amounts of guy-on-guy sex. Honestly, I just borrow them and play with them and even though sometimes they get a bit banged up and broken, I always return them to their rightful places and owners. I do not make money off of the stories posted here and also fail to see the need for a disclaimer at all. Isn't the fact that I'm posting on a fanfiction website enough to tell you that I do not in any way own these characters?
NOTE TO ALL READERS:
Because I've received a number of PMs asking about this, I figured it was probably a good idea to explain this on my profile. I have deleted the following stories from my account:
Before the Storm
The Wake of Tragedy
Embracing the Future
A Place to Call Home
So far they are the only fics that have gotten the axe, but there is a possibility that I will delete a few others.
To anyone coming here looking for these stories, I'm sorry. I am not reposting them. Please do not ask me to email you a copy of them, either, as I will say no. There is a very, very slim chance that some of these may be rewritten in the distant future, but I am making no promises and I wouldn't hold my breath.
I really, really appreciate the support, comments, reviews (good and bad) that I received on these stories (and all my stories), but I couldn't let them sit the way they were. They were, frankly, not as good as I wanted them to be. I have soft spot for A Place to Call Home because it was my first real attempt at writing anything of great length and depth and it was extremely well-received, but it was riddled with errors and inconsistencies and I couldn't leave it up. Same goes for the others.
I hope this at least clears up some confusion about the disappearance of the fics.

Writing is a very big part of my life. It's part of who I am. I have come a long way as a writer thanks to this site and the wonderful reviewers. I take my writing very seriously. I admit that I have a long way to go and I still have plenty of things to work on, but I am a hell of a lot better than I was three years ago.
This site has really been a wonderful learning experience for me - I've branched out into different genres and challenged myself to write things I never thought I could. I've gotten wonderful advice and praise and critique and learned so much about writing. I honestly cringe thinking about some of the things I've written in the past.
I write anything from angst, to fluff, from romance to horror. I'm not above killing off characters either. Though, I will admit that character death is the one and only thing I don't warn for. That is spoilers and I don't give away spoilers. However, I will make it absolutely clear that a story is going to be dark or angsty so really, that's fair enough warning if you ask me.
I am my own worst critic. I pick apart and obsessively analyze everything I write and, frankly, I'm usually not happy with it. There are only a few stories I've written that I have total confidence in as a writer. Sometimes, I'll write something and be happy with it, but the next day I find myself reading over it and wanting to set it on fire because I hate it that much. I am rarely fully satisfied with what I write, which is why constructive criticism is so important to me; I want to know when I screwed up and how I can work to fix it.
I welcome all forms of constructive criticism. If you see something wrong with one of my stories, please don't be shy. Point it out. Rip the story to shreds if you have to, as long as you're honest and objective and not rude about it.
I'd be lying if I said that negative reviews don't affect me, but I still appreciate the reviews that point out where I went wrong. It helps me to learn to correct the mistake and not make it again. If there's some time-line screw up, the characters seem OOC, the plot is falling apart, etc. point it out. I'll gladly take any advice anyone has to offer. That's not saying I'm going to write a story a certain way because someone asks me to, of course. It's my damn story and I'll write it any way I please. I'm not writing to please everyone and I don't expect everyone to love what I write. If just a few people like it, though, I think that's pretty damn good.
What I don't appreciate, however, are reviews that have nothing to do with the story. Do not review my story to tell me you don't like me. Do not review my story to tell me you don't like my profile. Do not review my story to tell me you disagree with something I said or did. Just don't. Send me a PM if it's that fucking important to you. Reviewing my story and not saying anything about the story will piss me off. Don't do it.
I don't ask for reviews to boost the review count. I ask for reviews to get opinions. I want to know what people thought about THE STORY. Not about me. Not about my beliefs. Not about anything else, but the story.
If you want to leave a comment about something I said in an A/N, that's totally fine, but if there is nothing in your review pertaining to the actual story then please just send me a PM. It'll make me a lot less cranky, I can tell you that much.
But I do ask, if you read my stories, drop me a review. I try to review every story I read (and I'm doing much better at that lately) and I would appreciate any thoughts you have on my writing. I don't care if it's one or two words. I don't even care if you just want me to update - at least then I'll know you're interested in the story. Just leave me a comment or two if you read my stuff. It will be greatly appreciated.
While on the subject of reviews, I'd like to thank everyone who does review my fics. I try to reply to reviews, but real life and busy schedules and things sometimes get in the way. Just know that even if I don't send you a PM thanking you, I read the review and I appreciate it and, really, thank you so much for taking the time to let me know your thoughts!
Also, please note:
1. I will ALWAYS put warnings in my summary and my Author's Note. You will never be left wondering. If a story has slash, rape, drugs, foul language, violence, is total crack, etc. I will warn you ahead of time so if you read it, it's your own damn fault.
2. I will NEVER write MPreg. It's totally cool if you're into that sort of thing, but I'm not. I don't like it. I won't write it.
3. I will NEVER write incest. It's disgusting. No incest pairing is okay with me. I do not read it, I will not write it. If you enjoy it, cool. But don't expect it from me.
4. I will NEVER abandon a story without due cause and warning. I have only ever abandoned one story and I am still working on getting that story back in publication shape.
5. I will read every single review I get. I love reviews, good or bad. As long as they aren't unnecessarily rude or inflammatory, I encourage and accept them with open arms.
(Fandoms I have written for are in bold; fandoms I've only read for are in italics.)
Criminal Minds – My first fandom and the one that I write the most for because of one wonderful, amazing character named Spencer Reid and the sexy beyond comprehension actor who plays him, Matthew Gray Gubler. *sighs* I am in love. This show is such fun to write for and I love it with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns.
Batman Begins/The Dark Knight – I absolutely love the "Nolanverse" (especially Heath Ledger's Joker, may he rest in peace). There are some fabulous fics on here for this fandom and I'm considering possibly writing a few for it myself. It's very tempting; I love the whole Joker/Batman dichotomy and would probably have way too much fun exploring that myself. But for now, I'm merely writing crossovers.
The Mentalist – I've written a few fics and crossovers for this one. It's an amazing show and I adore Patrick Jane to bits. He's such a complicated, dark, interesting character. And Simon Baker isn't bad to look at either :P Plus, he's one heck of an actor to pull of Jane's character so flawlessly that I can *feel* the emotions he's feeling. It's terrifying.
Harry Potter – I was at first hesitant to read HP fics, because JK Rowling's work is just so brilliant I didn't want to soil it. But the author's on here come up with some pretty interesting (and often twisted) plots and new spins of the characters that I'd never consider. I really hope to eventually write a fic for this.
Iron Man: Armored Adventures – I only read in this fandom, but there are a few ideas I've got tucked away (mostly exploring the whole Tony/Gene relationship). Maybe I'll write them someday, maybe I won't. All I know is that I love this show and there are some very good fics on here.
Doctor Who – This is, without a doubt, the single greatest Science Fiction television show in existence and that's not just me talking, ask the World's Records people, they totally gave them an award for being awesomer than Star Trek. XP (and yes, "awesomer" is a word). Seriously, I'm incredibly obsessed with the show and I have lots of ideas for fics. I'm starting out a bit slow, but look out for more fics in this fandom from me.
Psych – Another amazing crime/drama, Shawn is HILARIOUS. Right now I'm just reading, the only thing I've written for it are the scenes in Armageddon, but I do want to start writing more for this fandom as well. Probably angsty stuff. And Shassie. (What? I TOLD you I watched TV with my slash goggles on, jeez!)
Torchwood – I started watching TW because of DW, obviously, but I haven't watched passed Children of Earth. Not even sure if I *will* because CoE was painful. Beyond painful, really. The only thing I've written for it are in Armageddon during the Year that Never Was, but I do have ideas. Right now, I'm just an incredibly nerdy fangirl, which isn't really all that surprising given my massive obsession with Doctor Who and my incredible love of Captain Jack Harkness ;)
Sherlock – Oh Laura, where would I be without you? Possibly far saner than I am at this moment. But then I'd also have probably never gotten to see the most epic Sherlock Holmes in existence. I *love* this show and the characters and just everything about it. Sherlock and John BELONG together, Mrs. Hudson is awesome, Moriarty and the Master could totally take over the world and… I am in love.
House– The only medical drama I watch apart from "Scrubs" if that tells you anything. I adore House and I love Wilson and the fact that the characters are all human beings who make mistakes and sometimes regret them, sometimes don't. The show is amazing and I love it and there is only one character I have any real issue with and that's Cameron.
Supernatural – This show... I will make my friends Laura and Beth pay for ever MENTIONING this show to me. Especially Beth, because she talked about it for years before I finally decided to watch it. And now my heart has been broken and rebroken and shattered and set on fire and... It's holding on by a thread right now. I'm dead inside. But I can't stop watching it. It's amazing. Yet terrible. Supernatural is the murderer of fangirls and I am emotionally dead inside.
Avengers – Okay, so technically this listing isn't just for the movie "Avengers", but pretty much the whole Marvel Universe (Thor, Captain America, Iron Man movies, etc.) I've sort of become enamored with the new movies. I haven't picked up a comic book in years but I still have a strange obsession with superheroes – unless their name is Superman then I harbor a possibly unwarranted hatred towards them.
Merlin– Because Laura can't seem to stop getting me sucked into new fandoms... I'm in love with Colin Morgan and Bradley James. Thanks Laura, thanks so much. Merlin finished the job of shattering my soul that all those other awful fandoms started so long ago. So thanks BBC, you seriously fucked up my life.
Elementary- I was extremely pessimistic about this modern Sherlock Holmes crime/drama. However, in the name of fairness I gave the show a chance and actually love it. It's (thankfully) not a carbon-copy of "Sherlock" and the two shows are two very different types of shows. While I still maintain that the show would've been far more interesting had they cast Sherlock as a woman as well, Lucy Liu is fantastic as Watson and Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock Holmes is very different from Benedict Cumberbatch's while still maintaining the same personality of the original Holmes.
Hannibal – I am severely in love with this show. I have already been scouring fanfic archives to feed my very unhealthy obsession with it. I was, I admit, a teeny bit skeptical at first, but holy hell is this show fantastic. I can’t even put it into words properly, but it’s just so fucking awesome. The movies were awesome and Red Dragon is a wonderful book and now this seriously amazing TV show happens and… I’m a bit light-headed from the amazingness. I've written several fics for this fandom, but all are posted on my rather than here.
Feel free to PM me any time! I don't mind answering questions or giving advice if you feel I can offer it.
Some things are worth getting your heart broken for. - Sarah Jane Smith
When she said that, I wasn't entirely sure I agreed (though, yes, the Doctor is certainly worth the broken heart) ... And then I watched Supernatural and made the mistake of falling in love with Sam Winchester. At this point, I don't even know if my heart still works.
A Tribute to Supernatural by criminalxxxmindsxxxfreak:
Here's to the boy, who saved a world
Here's the man, who sold his soul
Here's the old drunk, who always had the answers
Here's to the angel, who gave his life
Here's to the heroes, who were broken inside
