Author has written 36 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, Misc. Books, Captain America, and Avengers.

I'm a woman in my mid-30s who still enjoys playing dress-up. Now I just do it with other people's characters. ;)

I write in the Captain America film series/MCU/Marvel and Avatar: the Last Airbender fandoms. My preference is for long, plotty gen, but I also love shorter bits of silliness and the occasional shippy fic. My favourite genres are horror, mystery, action/adventure, and comedy. I also love AUs and what-ifs. I over-identify to a frightening degree with Azula (A:tLA) and Bucky Barnes (Marvel) ;). I'm not super-invested in shipping (I don't understand ship wars at all!) but my favourite ships are, for AtLA, AzulaxTy Lee, AzulaxKatara, RokuxSozin, and RokuxSozinxTa Min and, for Marvel, BuckyxSteve, BuckyxNat, BuckyxSam and pretty much all OT3s and the OT4 between these four characters. In the Marvel fandom, I write in the MCU continuity, but I am pretty familiar with the comics and in fact have read every single comic Bucky Barnes appears in post 2005 resurrection and quite a few from before (I did say I over-identify with the character to a frightening degree ;)). However, while I do incorporate elements from the comics into my fics, no knowledge of the comics is required to read them.

I hope you enjoy my fics and please do leave a review or comment, as I love to know what people think of my stories. I don't usually reply here as ff.net would require me to PM individual reviewers, which I find a tad intrusive, but I do read and appreciate all feedback, and I do try to respond to all comments at AO3 if you would like to comment there instead. (AO3 also enables me to include links and illustrations in my fics, so I use it as my primary archive and my ff.net account is mostly for backup.)

Wasp Harvest reviews
'We are going to do great things together.' 1947: Bucky Barnes wakes up to a metal arm and Arnim Zola's voice. 1979: Alexander Pierce, newly-minted member of Hydra, takes over a now-useless asset tucked away in a vault. 2014: The master has a mission for the soldier. This is everything that happens in between. Or: Bucky Barnes, disassembled. The Winter Soldier, assembled.

The Replacement reviews
AU/What-If. Steve falls off the train. Bucky doesn't, and he takes up the shield long enough to land the Valkyrie in the ice. When he wakes up in New York almost 70 years later, the 21st century turns out to come with its own set of complications. Mostly action/adventure with some mystery/thriller elements and slow-build romance.

Separated By Birth reviews
AU/What-if. In a world in which Sozin turned out to be the Avatar instead of Roku, Zuko and Azula live oddly different, and oddly parallel, lives. Part of the *Children of the Empire* series, but can be read on its own.
