Author has written 17 stories for Once Upon a Time, Hollows, Kim Harrison, Lost Girl, Pitch Perfect, and 100.
Hi, if you are reading this it must mean that I have posted something to draw attention to my profile and I just hope it wasn't anything too embarrassing. I'll get the basics out-of-the-way so we can all get back to doing something productive, like writing and reviewing FanFics, and so I don't spend all day rambling on.
Most people call me Alex, except my boss who prefers to address me as 'where's my coffee' or 'I can't find any black pens'. On the days I am not dealing with that crazy woman I try to get through whatever books I am reading at the time, or TV shows I'm watching.
Mostly I have this account because I'm a reader and a reviewer of fanfics so I'm here for the great works published by others and occasionally will pen a FanFic story. I believe in leaving reviews that are worth typing out and I believe authors should respond to reviews. Even simply thank you note left at the end of a chapter shows consideration to those that took the time to review. I know some authors that add stories only to clear their heads and are uninterested in any reaction to them, which is fine and that is a level of self-confidence that more of us could probably do with borrowing from every now and then, but I would still hope someone would take a few seconds to acknowledge anyone kind enough to leave a review.
Aside from that I am not, nor have I ever been, someone who practices witchcraft, alchemy, necromancy, or safe driving. If you're interested in getting updates about my stories, or my general ramblings, you can follow me on here. I can also be found spamming Twitter (https://twitter.com/OverWorkedAlex) and Tumblr ( with #doccubus and #clexa related posts.
My main ship is between the incredible characters of Bo (the unaligned succubus) and Lauren (doctor hot pants) from a Canadian show called Lost Girl. It's a supernatural show so if you’re into gorgeous women that are into each other with a side of strange creatures running about and sword fights you can't go wrong by starting with the first episode and enjoying the canon Doccubus before seeking out some great FanFics. The show is in the mid-season break of its fifth and final Season so if you haven't seen it yet, now is a great time to start!
Recently my shipper heart has found itself yearning for Clarke (a young exile of sorts) and Lexa (leader of some terrifying looking people) from The 100. This is a light scifi genre show, but it doesn't skip on the death, destruction, mutant animals and generally awful people that unfortunately try to kill both of these woman. The two first cross paths in Season 2 and Cleka, or Commander Princess, are a canon ship with some seriously canon making out (okay one scene for like seven seconds). The show has a third season already locked in by the CW network so I suggest binge watching two seasons worth of episodes and then binge read some fics.
My pen name comes from actually as a nod to the character of Rachel, a redhead stubborn witch with a great ass from Kim Harrison's Hollows urban fantasy book series. The pairing of her Ivy, her vampire roommate who is madly in love with the witch, is what finally caused me to break down and create an account instead of lurking in the shadows. If you are not familiar with the Ravy pairing, start with book one in the Hollows series and you can thank me later, hopefully before finishing Pale Demon though, at which point feel free to stop reading the books, scream in frustration and move on.
Next comes some good old-fashioned crushing on a straight girl who needs to wake up and notice the ginger fics from Pitch Perfect. The tension between Beca and Chloe over the course of the film is ridiculous and at one point though they are naked and wet together and it’s pretty awesome.
Last, but not least, is one more from the "why isn't this canon" pile thanks to the pairing Emma Swan and Regina Mills (Swan Queen) from Once Upon A Time. Sadly I have not had the time to keep up with the show, or the FanFic stories involving these two, but being the first pairing I decided to publish a story for I do hope to get caught up and have a second story published involving those two at some point in the future.
Doccubus / BoLo (Bo and Lauren from Lost Girl) - Bo always wants with Lauren, forever, and preferably in bed, why naked. DOCCUBUS FOR LIFE!
Delusions of Insignificance - An AU multi-chapter story set in the Lost Girl universe after the end of Season 2, with some unintended elements of Season 3 canon, like a Doccubus pairing from the start :), though not necessarily exact copies of scenes or in order. Unfinished, but on hiatus for the next few centuries.
Promise - A Lost Girl future-fic one shot that became a two part by popular demand. First chapter contains mostly angst, second chapter leaves the incredible duo of Bo and Lauren in a much better place. Complete.
Need - Another Doccubus One Shot, but set against a specific moment from Season 3 and no follow up chapter for this one. Some angst, but with a happy ending. Complete.
Emergency-Care - A proper one-shot that is mostly fluff revolving around Bo, Lauren and their six-year old daughter Charlotte. Complete. *Most favorite thing I have ever written.*
Awkward Conversation - More Doccubus from Lost Girl! Bo breaking things off with Dyson completely creates some unexpected consequences for the unaligned clan. Fluffy story featuring a mention of why Kenzi should not be left unsupervised with official documents. Started off as a one-shot, but grew to five chapters before the end. Complete.
Kleenex and Head Wounds - A response fic to the 3x09 Episode off Lost Girl. Full of angst and romance in true Doccubus fashion. Complete.
Aftermath - Another one-shot. Yes I know yet another single-chapter story. Writing them seems to be a habit I've developed and can't break. This one also follows Lost Girl 3x09, but features not a single word of dialog and makes use of the M rating. Complete.
Expect the Unexpected - Spoiler free fluffiness with plenty of Doccubus goodness. Complete.
Try Again - Very angsty one-shot about lessons learned and hard truths for the Doccubus ladies in the aftermath of 3x09 and 3x10. Complete.
Overwhelming Kindness - An AU human story set in a hospital focusing entirely on the relationship that develops between Bo and Lauren after they start off as distant coworkers. Complete.
Same Time Tomorrow - What happens when Lauren and Bo run into each other at a cafe just days after first meeting at the Light Fae compound? Lots of flirting, Bo's crush gets an added dosage of hero worship and Lauren nerding out just a little bit. Complete.
Clexa / Commander Princess (Clark and Lexa from The 100) - The Blonde Princess loves her Raccoon Eyed Warrior!
Why - Set after 2x15 of The 100 where Clarke wants an answer and Lexa just wants Clarke to be safe. Complete.
Ravy (Rachel and Ivy from Kim Harrison's Hollows series) - Rachel knows Ivy is perfect, but she won't stop sleeping with guys that try to kill her.
Darkest Fears, Brightest Desires- A darker story centered on the Rachel and Ivy pairing from the Hollows book series. In desperate need of a 6th chapter from the material I already have, so it's just a matter I can ever sit down and put it together.
Containment Failure - A short-ish story about the risks and rewards of Rachel getting drunk and seducing her hot roommate vampire. Complete.
Bechloe (Beca and Chloe from Pitch Perfect) - Chloe is interested, but Beca is oddly immune to a naked ginger being in her shower.
Tired Of Waiting - One Shot set during the movie. Aubrey puts a plan into action to get Beca admit her feelings for Chloe. Complete.
Yeah, I didn't think so - AU-Post Movie one shot involving a dreaded double date and some patented Chloe seduction for dealing with a stubborn Beca. Complete.
Swan Queen (Emma Sawn & Regina Mills from Once Upon a Time) - The Savior who undresses the Evil Queen with her eyes.
Completely Unraveling- A very short one shot set shortly into Season 1 of Once Upon A Time for Emma and Regina. Not for those looking for something uplifting and sweet. Complete.
