"So long as there shall exist, by virtue and custom, decrees of damnation pronounced by society, artificially creating hells amid the civilization of earth, and adding the element of human fate to divine destiny; so long as the three great problems of the century - the degradation of man through pauperism, the corruption of woman through hunger, the crippling of children through lack of light - are unsolved; so long as social asphyxia is possible in any part of the world;- in other words, and with still wider significance, so long as ignorance and poverty exist on earth, books of the nature of Les Misérables cannot fail to be of use." - Victor Hugo
I am a self-professed stage purist, which means I generally prefer a stage version of a story over a film adaption or even an original novel on which a story is drawn from, though I respect those mediums.
Pottermore sorted me into Ravenclaw, but I sincerely thought I was going to be in Gryffindor, as I am impulsive and do a lot of things without thinking. However, I love research/learning (if it's something I care about), so I am happy with my house.
I recently got into the Pemberely Digital series on YouTube. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries are my favorite, but I also love Welcome to Sanditon and Emma Approved.
Some of the works I have published on this site are truly painful to read. Anything of mine from 2013 on is worth reading (The Power of a Glance to current) , but anything from 2012 and before is probably not worth your time (The Lark and the Rose and earlier). However, if you enjoy them, thank you for reading my less-than-pristine writing.
I seem to have a chronic problem with abandoning stories, but I am quite proud of The Coffee Shop, as it was my first (and only) work to break one hundred reviews (bearing such an original title for a coffee shop AU, I know). Also, my Sound of Music story, I Feel I Haven't Won At All, is now finished. I managed to complete that TCS and IFIHWAA, so let’s hope I can complete future stories without discontinuing.
I consider I Feel I Haven't Won At All my best work so far.

My meager claims to fame:
I saw Taylor Hicks live in the 2006 US tour of Grease as Teen Angel.
I have been in the same room as Ryan Secreast in 2011 during an American Idol audition.
I saw Chaim Topol live in the 2009 US tour of Fiddler on the Roof as Tevye.
And, most importantly, I saw Aaron Tveit live in the 2006 US tour of Hairspray as Link Larkin - before I knew who he was. WHY GOD WHY!?

To Lucy Barfield - My dear Lucy, I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again." - CS Lewis
