Hello, thanks for taking the time to look at my profile.

I've been a bit of geek for a long time when it comes to shipping couples, I have quite an issue with obsessions and once I get a favourite ship I become a little obsessed with it until it plays itself out!

I have a huge love of period dramas, I just love the way life was back in the past. I'm sure I was born in the wrong era or I've been re-incarnated and just can't let go! LOL :D

So my favourite programmes are Downton Abbey, Star Trek Voyager, X Files, Neighbours, Shameless, Benidorm, Bleak House, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Upstairs Downstairs and many many more that I can't think of right now.

My current favourite ship is DA's Anna and Bates. I do also ship a bit of Branson and Gwen and of course Cora and Robert!

I also ship from Star Trek Voyager Janeway and Chakotay and Mulder and Scully from X Files. Again I have others but I won't bore you with those!

So why am I here? Well I'd like to say it's because I have too much time on my hands but I don't, in fact I spend way too much time on here when I have a million other things I should do but oh well...! :D I just like fanfiction, I like to write it though I am not good and I just enjoy my obessions and what safer place than here??? HEHE

Well thanks again for popping by, if you read my fics then do please review!

In Answer by MyMadness reviews
Bates negotiates his surrender under Anna's perceptive, healing touch. Follows our pair through much of WWI. Alternating POV. Ch20. The Final Chapter. Thank You! Sometimes predictions and promises just take a while. That's why it's good to be patient.
