Author has written 19 stories for That '70s Show.
Writing is my absolute passion. I dream of becoming a published author someday and I'm even writing my first book now! With that said, I'm always coming up with different scenarios for the TV shows and books that I love so two years ago I started writing fan fiction and I really haven't stopped since. As you can see, I'm super, super, super, super, SUPER obsessed with That '70s Show an though I don't watch it as often as I used to, I have to share my obsession with the world and fan fiction is my out.

Stories Coming To A Computer Near You!:
(No Title... yet): Basically this story is going to be a oneshot (or a two/three shot, depending on how long it turns out to be) about the gang's (not including Jackie) first day of high school. (Posting Date: Sometime soon!)
Eric/Donna, Hyde/Jackie, Red/Kitty, Laurie/Casey, Brooke/Kelso
PAIRINGS I CAN TOLERATE:
Donna/Hyde-It's a random couple, but they'd look so cute together. Being a huge Eric/Donna fan, I wouldn't have liked to see Donna/Hyde together throughout the whole series, but there would be parts that would make sense for them being together. Like right before the series began. Donna and Hyde could have been dating and then broken up right before the pilot, when Hyde realizes that Donna has a thing for Eric, then Eric and Hyde could battle it out for her. And in season 8, Hyde could have just started out being Donna's shoulder to cry on, and then it would have turned into something more, reawakening feelings for both. Of course, they'd have to break up right before the finale so Donna could go back to Eric and Hyde to Jackie (damn you writers!). :-)
Angie/Kelso--All right, maybe they aren't the best couple out there, but it sure was funny watching them together. And, out of all of Kelso's hookups/relationships, at least she was semi-normal. Added in with all of the "Kelso nailed your sister" jokes from Eric to Hyde, they were probably one of the better season 7 story lines.
Eric/Jackie-I've had a change of heart, I'm honestly starting to like Eric/Jackie as couple (as long as the story is done well). I appreciate hugely that the That '70s Show writers didn't have this pairing on the show, but fanfictions are supposed to be out of the box, so why not? But that doesn't mean I'm giving up on Eric/Donna as a couple. :-) Oh, and Eric/Jackie is DEFINITELY better than Fez/Jackie.
LEAST FAVORITE PAIRINGS (not necessarily boyfriend/girlfriend wise)
Fez/Jackie-I mean, come on! Whoever thought this would work out must have been spending a little too much time in the circle. Sure, it might have been cute if they got together in season 2, when Fez had an extreme crush on Jackie and they actually did go out on a date, but by season 8 their characters had changed so much for them to be good together. Fez was too sex-crazed and Jackie had grown up a lot after experiencing everything she did with Hyde. I was sooo waiting for Hyde to punch Fez in the face when he announced in the final circle that he'd kissed Jackie. But again, no. Hyde could care less, at least, he acted that way.
Fez/Laurie-With every least favorite pairing comes an exception. Yes, Fez and Laurie made sense when the were first together: the boy that was just after sex and the village whore seeking out another victim. After that, though, they weren't meant for each other, that's why they got divorced. So to write a fanfiction story where they are married just makes no sense. However, after season 5, Laurie was a different person, so maybe if the same Laurie was kept, I would feel differently.
Randy/Donna-I think I speak for every That '70s Show fanatic out there (more like all of humanity) when I saw that RANDY SUCKS. You don't even have to watch the whole show to know that, just watch one season 8 episode with him in it and you'll know how bad he is. And, let's face out, whoever Donna was with that wasn't Eric we were all going to hate in the first place. Maybe a Donna/Hyde relationship would hold us over for a little while, but we all know she and Eric were the best together. And that's why the best part of season eight is when the music starts playing "Thirteen by Big Star" and the memories of she and Eric start rolling. And when Eric says "Happy New Year," that was the best of all.
Sam/Hyde-Oh, boy. I could go on for so long on this one, just like Randy/Donna. Let's just say, as we all know, that when Hyde ditched Jackie in that hotel room, it all just started going downhill from there. When that stripper showed up, we were all shocked. And when Hyde stayed with her... just wow. But then Sam left, and there was just a small glimmer of hope that Jackie/Hyde would start up again. But, no. Jackie just HAD to "fall in love" with Fez.
Hyde/OC-Does anyone else know what I'm talking about? There always seems to be a new character that just randomly moves in next to Eric and Donna, moves into the Pinciottis' old place, or is someone's cousin and they just have to fall in love with Hyde. And they don't even acknowledge the fact that Jackie/Hyde even happened! To be honest, I'm tired of seeing these. Can't we just put Hyde with Jackie and get over it?
Me and Fan Fiction
I write for enjoyment, entertainment, and pleasure, not to see how many reviews my stories get. Yeah, like most I LOVE getting story reviews and even the "Good Chapter&More Please" review I get from one user on everything keeps me going. Sure, I'd like to get a more detailed review, but just to know at least one person likes the work I put out there is extremely rewarding.
I use my stories to create happy endings that I think most people want. I take a lot of time and consideration to plan out almost every single detail to make them as enjoyable as possible (I seriously have at least 15 pages of notes, charts, and ideas that somehow turn into stories), so I would really appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to put a lot of consideration into your reviews.
I write more stories than I read. I find that if I read stories that interfere with what I'm writing, my mind gets completely messed up and it's hard to get back into the writing mood and sometimes I'll even include stuff that I read in those stories because I'm thinking I wrote them.
If I don't post a chapter up for a while the reason(s) why I haven't posted is either inspiration for that chapter hasn't hit me yet and I'm trying to gather ideas or I'm working on later chapters for that story or another story all together.
I REFUSE to write disclaimers. Obviously you don't own the TV show/movie/book that you're writing about or anything that you include in the story and they're annoying to see at the top of the page when all the reader wants is to read the story.
I HATE getting simple reviews that say something along the lines of "Good." I take lots of time to make my story something someone will want to read and being told that a chapter is "good" isn't enough. What did you think was good about it? Did you like how I described one of the characters? Did you like how I talked about a character I haven't in a while? I'm not going to know unless you tell me and maybe then I can include what you liked so much in one of my other stories or chapters.
If you're going to write a story, learn the facts first. Read a few websites. Read the book. Watch the TV Series/Movie. Don't write a story thinking you know everything about the topic, when you've only watched an episode or two or only read the first 4 chapters of the book. You do want reviews, don't you? Well, the only review you'll be getting is how a character is not portrayed right or the most important details are left out.
There's such a thing as spell check! It's called the F7 button. Believe me, reading a story where the first sentence says "Jaki wlked down da street an sad hiii 2 Jym" is just going to turn off more people, and it doesn't help that your story is only 300 words and makes no sense whatsoever. Overall, I just find it hilarious how people think their story is the best story ever when it consists of only 2 paragraphs that are 3 lines long.
Another thing about spelling, if you like a movie/book/tv show enough to write about it, know how to spell their names! It's Eric Forman, not Erik Foreman. It's Jackie Burkhart, not Jacqui or Jacki Burkhardt. It's Steven Hyde, not Stephen Hide. It's Fez, not Fes. It's Michael Kelso, not Micheal.

Signs you might be afflicted with the condition known as WRITER.
1. You would rather talk to the voices in your head than the person sitting next to you. (If you've met my family and friends... well, my entire school, you'd know why.)
2. Some of the letters on your keyboard are completely worn off. (On my old computer, I was missing the F8 key, the key that makes lines, the 6 key, some random button that I couldn't remember what it was for, the N key, and my space bar was held together by scotch tape, dirt, dust, and hope. Currently on my new one, no keys have fallen out--yet--but the S and N keys are wearing away.)
3. You would rather write than go out. (Yep! I once spent a day inside on the computer the whole day to finish a fan fiction.)
4. Your/you're and their/there/they're are errors that send you into an apoplectic fit. (Well, duh! I can't go 10 seconds texting my best friend without screaming... it's a good thing I like him...)
5. You get cranky if you don't get to write. (Cranky? You're lucky I don't throw a fit only a 3 year old whose parents won't buy her new doll clothes would make.)
6. You've ever said,"The voices are getting louder; I must go write." (Never said it aloud, but I'm pretty much thought it, but in different words.)
7. When talking to others, you mentally edit their dialogue and compose tags and beats. (Definitely.)
8. You've heard/seen something, and thought, I need to write that down. (Absolutely, I'll write on my hand, make notes on my phone, anything to remember it. And I also announce it by saying "Writing inspiration has hit" or I suck in my breath and scream, "STORY IDEA!")
9. You've ever written a scene, synopsis, outline, or character sketch on a restaurant napkin..and it wasn't a paper napkin.
10. You wake up in the middle of the night and scrabble for a pen and paper you keep next to your bed to write down a scene to make the voices be quiet so you can get some sleep. (Way to often... but I also like thinking about the idea and imagining it before I write it.)
11. You end an argument by saying,"Oh,wait, I have to write this down-this is the perfect conflict for my characters! Now, repeat what you just yelled." (No, but if I hear/see something that would make sense for my story, I definitely try to memorize everything.)
12. Getting the scene finished is more important than coffee, the bathroom, or food. (Yep, I've totally starved myself and everything else just to keep writing, and by then it's 1 AM and it kills me to stop and go to sleep.)
13. You have a momentary reality lapse and mention your characters' situation as a prayer in Sunday school. (I don't go to Sunday school, but this just gave me an idea of what to pray for in church.)
14. A blank wall becomes the screen where the scene you're writing takes place right in front of your eyes. (Yeah, but more like the street outside.)
15. The easiest way for you to deal with conflict is to go home and write it in your story. (Yeah, I kind of joke that if it wasn't for writing, I wouldn't have survived this summer away from my best friends and... you know who.)
16. You purposely eavesdrop in public. (Nah, I have other people to eavesdrop for me.)
17. At parties, your method of making conversation is to discover people in the room with interesting occupations (preferably your hero or heroine's)so you can conduct research.
18. You listen to the writer's commentary on every DVD so that you can analyze his/her writing process. (Well, I listen to the director's commentary on the That '70s Show DVDs religiously and watch all of the behind the scenes things to better understand the characters that make my fanfiction up.)
19. You have a favorite line from every movie you've seen. (Who doesn't?)
20. You can't write because you're mad at one of your characters. (Only if I'm watching a That '70s Show episode where Casey's in it... better yet, Randy.)
21. You argue with said character. (Yep, but it's more like cursing out...)
22. You drive three hours to a city where you don't know anyone, spend another three hours driving around the city, then drive three hours home and decide NOT to set your story there. (I can't drive, but if I could, I definitely would drive to another state--ahem, Wisconsin--to see what it's like.)
23. You have a folder on your computer labeled "Ideas." Some of the files within this folder have only one or two words or sentences and you wonder why they made sense to you months ago. (Oh, yes.)
24. You start to laugh out loud in public at what something your character might say. (Same thing goes if I remember what I wrote before.)
25. At school, you secretly look forward to writing English papers. (Guess who's in love with critical lens essays... and I don't mind comparing and constrating ancient civilizations in Global history also.)
26. When you talk to someone, you constantly correct their bad grammar. (Yep)
27. Even though you try your hardest to resist, you often correct your own grammar on IM. (Once, but only because the person I was talking to pointed it out as well.)
28. You talk to yourself constantly. (Even when other people are around, yeah.)
29. You talk to yourself about talking to yourself too much. (Yup.)
30. Your family/friends have come to the ignore the habit of your talking to yourself. (I think.)
31. You've apologized out loud to a character after doing something horrible to them. (No, but when I watch TV and the writers did something bad to a character I write about, I personally apologize about it... and then write a fanfiction about it.)
