Author has written 21 stories for Sanctuary, House, M.D., and Stargate: SG-1.

Oh, blah. 23-year-old lit/language nerd, English major with a Communications minor, getting ready to graduate after 5 long years, but still not ready to leave school yet. If I could afford to be a perpetual student, I would.

I write fanfiction approximately once a year. Ha. I'm unlikely to do anything other than one-shots, and they'll probably all be short and sweet - 1k words or less.

Mostly, I've come to accept that fanfiction is a creative way to express my feelings about certain characters without having to go on a page-long OOC spiel about them. I like that you can do some heavy-hitting on characterization through fanfic, so I'm opening myself up to writing some introspective wordvomit, namely regarding Helen Magnus, from Sanctuary.

So cheers, I guess?

Oh, and don't ever feel like you can't review something critically. I absolutely adore constructive criticism, so come at me, bro!

Helen had thought she knew these tunnels like the back of her hand by now, but she supposes that trusting the earth to remain the same is silly indeed. (sidenote: I'm awful at fluff)

Drunk as Drunk reviews
some Helen/James feels inspired by a couple of Pablo Neruda's poems: "Drunk as Drunk" and Sonnet XVI "I love the handful of the earth you are" . Strong T/M - the usual. "His Helen has strong shoulders and rough hands, a sharp tongue and sharper mind. She is a world all her own, mountains and valleys and quakes and whirlwinds all within her being."

Aftermath reviews
"Helen," Nikola finally breathes, and her gaze flashes back to him as if she's trying to convey some hidden meaning with her eyes. Gratitude, he thinks. And warmth. He feels it before he thinks it, and when he thinks it he can't make sense of it.
