Author has written 80 stories for Once Upon a Time.

I've been writing fanfic a long, long time. Okay, to be honest, a long, long, long time. My first story--I just recently realized it really was a fanfic--was a cross between Island of the Blue Dolphins and The Black Stallion, written when I was 7. Then I discovered TV and started writing for The Monkees, The Man from UNCLE, and Alias Smith and Jones. In college I decided I should be a Real Writer, so I earned an MA in Creative Writing, with a specialty in playwriting, with a special specialty in comedy). But as I was striving to be Real, I was thunderstruck once again by some really good television writing, "Desperate Souls" and "Skin Deep" (and positively overwhelmed--and still am--by the--oh, there's no superlative strong enough for it--the beyond-amazing acting of Robert Carlyle). Real Writing will have to wait; I have Rumple to explore.

I still write comedy. Sometimes in the middle of angst. Can't help it. Puns are my potato chips.

“'Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'"--The Velveteen Rabbit, Margery Williams

I'm on Tumblr at darcyfarrow2005.

Nature vs Nurture by sshk0409 reviews
I'm intrigued by Rumplestiltskin's evolution. From debased peasant to the Dark One. He was a reactive personality at first. But by the time he's locked up in the cell, he's the one making others react. The voice changes, the showmanship like gestures, they all came from somewhere. We've seen very little of that evolution. So I'm making one up. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Thorns of Hope by georgesgurl117 reviews
"His Belle would never slight someone else's cooking, even if it were sub-par, which he was sure was not the case. She would only roll her eyes if she thought that he was being too self-deprecating or intentionally aggravating. And she would certainly never chug anything, let alone an entire serving of white wine." Hints of GoldLace, but really Rumbelle at the heart of it.

Cult of Beauty by Sapsorrow86 reviews
Deep inside the forest on the outskirts of a poor village there was a pool of water in which people could get glimpses of their soul mates. And though the magic of the waters brought countless joy to more than one villager it had only ever made Rumplestiltskin, the town coward, miserable. There was, after all, nothing worse than falling for a person who couldn't possibly be real.

Left a Hole Where My Heart Should Be by Child of Mars reviews
Once, Cora knew a man. A man of magic. A man who gave her a book of spells and took her baby's tears and met her, blast for blast, power for power, in a magical battle that nearly destroyed them both. This is the story of how Cora Mills seduced the Dark One for the second time, the time she ripped his heart from his chest. Rate T for non-graphic magical violence and implied sex.
