Author has written 9 stories for Once Upon a Time, X-Men: The Movie, and Walking Dead.

I am twenty-nine years old currently out on disability. I used to be a massage therapist but thanks to carpal tunnel in my left hand and thoracic outlet syndrome in my right shoulder, I now have plenty of time to indulge in my writing. I find myself slightly obsessed with Stargate Universe and Once Upon A Time. Although between Gold and Rush; I'd choose Rush. Yes, I blame Robert Carlyle and all his epic awesomeness and Scottish charm.

I love Jesus, I'm happily single, no kids and I am NOT a vegetarian. I like to scrapbook/write/make videos. I am kind of anti-social on social networks only because I would rather be at a coffee shop actually talking to a person than typing on a keyboard. My favorite author is C.S. Lewis; oddly enough my favorite book is the Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien.

Other things I like/ship:

SGU:

Rush/Mandy

Rush/Chloe (but not in a romantic capacity)

Eli/Chloe

TJ/Varro

Criminal Minds:

Morgan/Garcia

Hotch/Prentiss

Reid/that chick that he saves in season 4)

Benson/Stabler (L&O: SVU)

Wolverine/Rogue (X-Men)

Aragorn/Arwen (LOTR)

I have a tumblr account now:

As the countdown to midnight stretches on, however, Gold realizes it might be easier said than done as the other lovely couples of Storybrooke compete for that first kiss. One word: sabotage.
