Author has written 24 stories for Grey's Anatomy.
Irene. 24. Italian currently in New York.
I work as an au pair, now. I graduated in Modern Languages and Literature at the University of Bologna. English is not my first language, Italian is. I can also hold up a conversation in Spanish, understand German and very basic French. I love anything connected to languages, and I wish I knew more, especially the really obscure ones.
Former basketball player, former amateur photographer, active fanfiction writer. I love food and cooking, and it will come up in my stories quite often. Every Wednesday I'm free I play soccer and I joined a gym, so that I feel less guilty when I eat my body weight in pancakes or breakfast food in general.
SHOWS: Grey's Anatomy (up to S11), Fringe, Code Black, Blindspot, This Is Us, Castle, Sherlock, Chicago Fire, The Night Shift, Rizzoli & Isles, Bones, The Mentalist, Remedy, Chuck. I have to catch up with Fargo, Suits and One Tree Hill. Still on the fence about True Detective.
The National big fan, but I listen to mostly indie music. I love Iron & Wine, Kings of Convenience, Moby, Interpol and a lot of other artists/songs. Most of my inspirations will be found in my stories anyway. As to confirm this, all the sons in my story "Before I Saw You" are taken from any The National's song that seems to fit the mood.
Feel free to send private messages and start conversations, I appreciate tips and corrections, even constructive criticism or if you simply want to chat and discuss my stories or favorite shows.
I'm a very open-minded reader and writer, I love angst and fluff, and I always try to maintain a balance between the two, though my latest stories are becoming a little darker, a little closer to reality. Realism is what I strive to portray in my stories, so I do research and obsess over details, hence why the chapters sometimes come sparingly.
I should re-write most of my early stories, edit their awful grammar, maybe even tweak a couple of weird scenes. I don't know if I'll ever get around to do it, probably never, but who knows? I prefer writing more new stories for you rather than digging up whatever I have already written in the past. Whenever I'll do it, though, you'll be the first ones to know about it.

Speaking of nattylovesjordy, the one that inspired me for the Adjective Series, I co-wrote a Castle one-shot with her, Easter themed, involving Castle and Beckett trying to create the perfect Easter now that they are a couple. It started out as a challenge between us, and we ended up having so much fun! Here's the link to Quiet Company, With The Notes in My Ears: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9147990/1/
Also to be included in my co-writing endeavors:
