Author has written 6 stories for Glee.

Hey there!! Sammi here!

Age: mid 20s :) [What can I say, I like to keep a lil mystery]

Location: NY, NY...upper east side of the coolest city ever!! yea I admit I am a little biased :) I think I'm allowed to be lol

I'm not exactly new to the world of fanfiction, I'm just new to this site.

Anyway a little about me:

Likes (read: loves): music (I consider my ipod a bare necessity. It's like air), theater, movies, traveling, video games (so sue me! I'm a girl who will kick ass on COD lol), basketball, soccer, volleyball, wasting time, procrastinating (I'm good at that), long walks on the beach with that special someone :P jk, honestly I just spend my time either bugging my friends, at work, or wandering through times square or in the theatre district :D

Dislikes: really, really obnoxiously smart people, broken promises lol, ummm heavy metal music, exboyfriends lol

Like my bestie, and most of the people I hang with, I love Broadway. I've seen hundreds of shows, on and off B-way, since childhood and I've been in love with it ever since. Idina Menzel is my idol (well her and and Kristin Chenoweth of course) Someday I hope to actually break into the business, but that is just wishful thinking. Not necessarily acting though, I play several instruments and hope maybe one day I could be apart of the ensemble of some sort. But for now, I take joy in teaching to the younger generation at a local private school.

So yea, that's me in a very, very tiny nutshell. Any questions, lemme know :)

Okay down to business...My Stories

[So, I've gotten emails asking me about this, so let me address it openly: I'm open to accepting prompts from people and citing you of course Admittedly I can't do everyone's prompt, but as I'm so inspired I'll do what I can.]

Stand-Alone stories:

-Priority Adjustment: initially meant to be a one-shot, I have decided to continue it throughout the rest of season 2

Series:


Mama Bear Series: These will feature Shelby in serious, overprotective, no questions asked, take no prisoners mode as well as the cute, cuddly Mommy!Shelby.

- Hell Hath No Fury(completed) [1]
- Midnight Escapades (completed) [2]
- Making It Right (completed) [3]

City Girl Series: Features Shelby raising Rachel in New York as she pursues her Broadway and independent music career.

- Stage Fright (completed/co-written with FlyingFreeDefyingGravity)
- Late Night Lullabies (completed) [A/N: While within this story the identity of the baby is left unknown, I've envisioned the child to be Rachel. Hence the reason it is in this category.]
- ABCs - In Progress

So as you can see, I'm going to be pretty busy for the next few weeks, but any comments or more suggestions, please let me know. I'm always up for helpful criticism :D
