Hi there.

You can call me Spangle and I am living somewhere in Bedford, England. Avatar drawn by the lovely CaramelCatkin.

Updates are as and when I find time/motivation to write, sorry. Uni's keeping me pretty busy unfortunately. The fanfics I've written that I'm most proud of - as well as some oneshots and general updates - are also on spanglepress [dot] tumblr [dot] com. If you'd like to chat, my personal blog is spanglebangle [dot] tumblr [dot] com.

EDIT [11-08-14: I have an AO3 account now, under SpangleBangle. Although I will continue to update already-in-progress fics here, it is likely new projects (see Plans) will be published on my AO3 account and tumblr writing blog (spanglepress).

I have every intention of finishing RF, but a timeline is not realistic right now. Ch12 may be published in the upcoming weeks but the remaining chapters (aiming for 20) have no predicted publishing dates.
Trapped In Covetousness Ch3 has just been uploaded though again I have no timeline for future chapters, sorry.
Dubious Saviour it is unlikely I will finish this fic anytime soon, consider it abandoned/on a long hiatus until further notice.
All other fics are finished or abandoned, I don't know why completed fics keep getting new followers as they will not be updated. Flattering, but unecessary.

Plans:
P
acific Rim - FemNewmann An exploration of the relationship between Nette Geiszler and Hildegarde Gottlieb as female scientists navigating sexism, personal heartache and trying to survive the end of the world. Two chapters currently written, will be uploaded to the AO3 and tumblr accounts very shortly.
Merlin/Potterverse - Merthur Merlin and Arthur as first year undergrads in Camelot University - one attending Corporate Law on the Muggle campus, the other studying every magical class under the sun while trying to conceal this from his flatmate as well as resisting the temptation (not always successfully) to hex the corporate heir, and trying even harder not to accidentally expose the magical world. In progress though not in a chaptered format yet, will eventually be uploaded to the AO3 and tumblr accounts.
Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan - Mikasasha Another first year university AU (set in England) where Mikasa tries to come to grips with how to be a girl after a childhood spent in Eren's shadow; exploring the friendships and relationships of the SNK girls and femininity with words of wisdom from transfeminine Armin.
