Author has written 47 stories for Glee, Skins, and 100.

Hello :)

I'm a 25 year old full time retail manager, and business/creative writing graduate.

I write one shots as and when I feel the urge to. So you really never know what I'm going to post next or when.

You can follow me on tumblr (scottcanyounot.tumblr.com), sometimes I post one shots there and forget to post them here too (and vice versa)

I've also recently published an original book on Amazon which has f/f romance and tells the story of Grace Richards, a twenty-something from England who moves to New York City in the hope of finding something more exciting. You can buy it here in paperback or on Kindle!

As of February 2015, I have kind of abandoned here and jumped to ao3. You can find me here. Any multi-chapter fics on this account that are in-progress will more than likely not be completed.
