Author has written 42 stories for X-Men, Good Wife, Hunger Games, Vampire Diaries, Veronica Mars, Ultraviolet, Avengers, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, Stargate: SG-1, Rookie Blue, Person of Interest, Criminal Minds, Secret Circle, and Stargate: Atlantis.

Note: My stories also appear on ArchiveOfOurOwn dot org, as well as Livejournal and Dreamwidth, unimaginatively using the same handle in each place. (Technically a more complete collection, as a mini ficlet in the Faces/Hunt/Falling/Waiting sequence exists in those places as well as an original piece.)

I live in the UK and program for a living. So I've got to do something to satisfy my creative side. And, um, apparently writing fic helps relieve that need. Who knew?

Although the stories are just posted in my name, I'd be remiss in not noting that I've roped in my lovely wife to beta and co-write these stories. You can probably blame her for the really funny lines.

In general, I have a taste for the twisty and somewhat complex.

And one day, I will write a story with a happy ending. Oh yes.

(Much to my surprise, mission accomplished. Interesting Times actually has a happy ending. Or ends happily, at any rate. But then The Dating Game/Interesting Times are somewhat more light hearted than my usual work.)

Maybe even this one. You never know.

(This one currently being Waiting for the Storm to Break.)

I'm currently writing a sequence of stories I've tentatively named Intersecting Trajectories, an X-men/Criminal Minds crossover fic mostly involving Emily Prentiss and Emma Frost. It's probably why you're here.

(Unless for some reason you like my Good Wife or my Hunger Games fics. My, I seem to branching out somewhat these days.)

If you like them, I've written an original fic, about the life of a witch called Mirabelle, who is possibly my happiest, bounciest, most messed up character ever. (The last quality in particular is probably a mark of some dubious distinction.) Interested parties can find it here:

http://archiveofourown.org/works/269326/chapters/424398

(This is slightly old information in that I'm *relatively* certain tha Johanna in my Hunger Games fic is probably more messed up than Mirabelle. But I like the phrasing above, so I'm keeping it. Also, I can imagine Johanna getting better.)

Animals and Prizes by Alsike reviews
Tori Vega is starting an exciting new school, Hollywood Arts, but she has a secret. She's a female alpha, naturally dominant and aggressive. If anyone finds out, her life will hardly be worth living. Alphas sense when an omega goes into heat, but that doesn't mean she wants an omega - especially not a girl omega. Biology isn't destiny, right? Jori

Series: Another Thirteen Steps: Epitaph by Valyssia
ATS Story 8. From victim to assailant. It's an intriguing transition, one that we make through the eyes of an unknown character. Then the camera turns and we view her through a very familiar pair of eyes. Can be read as a standalone story. *Femslash*

Hot Coffee reviews
Modern day AU. Working in a coffee shop can be more than little insane, especially when you need to the money to make ends meet, you have problems standing up for yourself and your boss has an ongoing feud with one of the regular customers. Really, the last thing you need is to actually start *liking* the customer in question.

Dead Girls Tell Altogether Too Many Tales
Shaw is a cyborg on the outs from the organisation that created her. Finch is a death cultist, sorry, member of a minority religion with a far too avid fascination with blood and death for Shaw's taste. Together they solve minor magical incidents, preferably before anyone gets too badly hurt. Oh and Root? Root's dead, but she's hardly going to let a little thing like that stop her.

Breathing (Air that Burns like Razorblades) reviews
It starts when she sees her across the other side of a hotel lobby, pointing at a woman just about to get on an elevator. No, it really starts when she thinks that she hears her say "Better look at that accountant again." No, it actually starts when she's staring at her coffin as it's lowered into the ground.
