Author has written 4 stories for Bridget Jones' Diary, Parks and Recreation, and Pride and Prejudice.

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I'm newer to fan fiction than many, but I've enjoyed reading all of the fantastic works people have put out. It amazes me how talented so many of you out there are! I'm not lying when I say I've even sometimes enjoyed fan fics more than original books, shows, etc. I personally try to keep my lists of favorite authors and stories to only ones I would recommend, so if you're looking for some good reads, I'd recommend you check 'em out.

Recently, I've started writing and found it to be thrilling, terrifying, frustrating, and rewarding, all wrapped together. I appreciate beyond words all feedback - praise and constructive criticism alike - since it encourages me and helps me grow. That said, I do try to have reasons for my choices in my stories, so if you offer constructive feedback I may write back to explain my reasoning - doesn't mean you have to agree, but I think it's only fair to be able to have a dialogue. Also, I really try to respond to every review! I feel that if people take the time to leave one, it deserves a reply (if PMs are enabled) and I appreciate other authors who do the same. I'm not going to claim I'm perfect at this, but I try :)

Ships I love (in no particular order):

Ben/Leslie - Parks & Rec

Arthur/Gwen - Merlin

Bridget/Mark - Bridget Jones' Diary

Elizabeth/Darcy - P&P

Edward/Bella - Twilight

Nathan/Audrey - Haven

There are occasionally others I've read and enjoyed, but these seem to be the most prevalent. I also seem to go through phases of what I'm into and now that I'm working on a multi-chapter story, I have a lot less time to read as much. Also, a story being well-written (and I include grammar, spelling, and typos, in addition to plot) is very important to me. I have had to abandon stories before because there were so many mistakes I could not enjoy the story. Not to jump on a soapbox, but truly, FFN has beta readers so I really feel there's no excuse for multiple, obvious errors. A comma missing here or there? No biggie. But not knowing the difference between "defiant" and "definite," for example, can just get to be too much. If the errors pull me from the story in order to decipher what's happening, I will give up.

I'm also on livejournal as halo_221. There are a couple older fics there that I have not posted here, but otherwise, I'm on here more than there. (To be honest, I really haven't been on LJ almost at all since I started Overheard)

And, in case I forget to put a disclaimer on any of my stories, all my fics are solely for enjoyment, I'm not making any money nor do I intend to infringe upon the rightful owners of any of my stories in any way. That said, the parts I've made up myself are mine, so please don't steal or reproduce without my permission.

July 5 Update:

Chapter 27 of Overheard is now posted! Thank you to each and every one of you for your patience! I'm going to try to do better for Chapter 28, but I can't guarantee it... I will get it written as soon as I can! In the meantime, please enjoy Chapter 27!

December 22 Update:

I have NOT abandoned Overheard and I will not. I'm trying to get the next chapter written, but I'm seriously slammed with RL responsibilities. Nothing bad, like major illnesses or anything, but I have a very demanding job plus quite a few personal commitments, was travelling a bit, and now the holidays are taking their toll. It's completely unintentional that I've left the story hanging for so long and I am sorry! I PROMISE I am working on it and will not leave you all hanging any longer than necessary. Thank you so much for reading, reviewing, PMing, lurking, stalking, sending thought vibes, etc! I love that people are enjoying my story and eager to continue with it! I promise to keep working at it until the story is done! :)

February 3 Update:

Sadly, I am still plowing my way through Ch. 28. I've got maybe half of it written, but I'm not decided yet that it isn't complete crap. This chapter has just not flowed for me, no matter what I do (including re-reading the entire story so far all the way through). Again, I thank you for your understanding and patience. I'm trying, I promise!
