24 years old. Professional script reader. Addicted to angsty fanfic since 2004. (Geez, have I really spent a decade of my life on this? And more importantly, was I really trying to write adult relationships at age fourteen??)

Writing a lot of Orange is the New Black at the moment, always with a possibility for some Orphan Black on the side. Young Blood 'verse is my sprawling angsty baby (Young Blood, It's Friday I'm In Love, Landslide, and With or Without You).

take a sad song and make it better reviews
Sort of "Young Blood", vignette style, from Diane's perspective. But the first half ended up just being Diane and Alex backstory that is just as applicable to canon as to my 'verse. So...if you're not into the YB stuff but just want some early Diane and Alex, first chapter's still completely applicable. For the second chapter, you only have to have read "YB" not all the sequels.

Poor Little Rich Girl reviews
Fulfilling Tumblr prompt for Lifeguard/Beach 's the summer before her senior year of college, and Piper failed to make other plans, so she's stuck with her family in their beach house in some seaside town full of rich vacationers who can afford to take the time off. Nearby, locals Alex and Poussey work their yearly summer gig as lifeguards.

Monster reviews
Brief, fluffy piece to ease the transition between lengthy angst fics. This is a complete whim, and probably the only time I'll ever write this trope/genre for these two. I don't even want to say anything else. Canon compliant with the end of season two, just fast forward a few years.

Your mom dies. Piper leaves. That turns out to be the answer to a question you will get asked a lot over the next several years: "What the **** happened to you, Vause?"

we were boxing the stars reviews
Season Two of OITNB told us over and over that prison isn't summer camp. But, like...maybe I want it to be. Just for a little while. Hence...camp counselor AU. Piper POV/Vauseman centric, but everyone's definitely a part of it.

Step Right Up reviews
Super random theme park AU. In which Alex, in the summer job from hell, is working a games booth at a theme park (alongside some other familiar faces), bored out of her mind until the day some dull Jewish guy brings his girlfriend by Alex's booth to try to win her a prize...but she's not exactly eyeing the stuffed animals.

you were a truth I would rather lose reviews
""I'm sick, Delphine." Three words. The grenade that starts the war, really starts it, renders all battles up to this point mere child's play. You feel the impact in your whole body, a marrow deep armageddon, because you do not have to ask for clarification. You know what sort of sick she means." Mild season two spoilers.

Superboy reviews
In which Alana, Will, their son, and the dogs live in a beach house in Florida where everything is beautiful and no food is people. Utterly shameless family fluff. Vignette style. Pre-Red Dragon, post Hannibal arrest. Fic request, sorta.

See How Deep the Bullet Lies reviews
"I had an interesting conversation with Jack last night," Hannibal says, his voice maddeningly calm as he looks at Will through the glass. "It seems Alana Bloom has...refocused her investigative efforts. " Will's blood turns to ice. "Perhaps you could dissuade her from going too far down this route. After all, there could be all sorts of consequences." Two shot.

A Promise A Person Can't reviews
The dog strains against the leash, the howl only amplifying, and maybe it's the sleep deprivation, but something about the animal in that moment reminds of her of Will, trapped and helpless and confused. It makes her feel so damn useless. Something inside Alana cracks open, and suddenly there are tears rolling down her cheeks and she's standing on her porch pleading with a dog.

Unstitched reviews
Will's heart catches as he realizes they are at cross purposes, each trying to prove opposing points: Will, that he is a monster; Alana, that he isn't. For a second his chest aches, and he thinks, Not now. Not like this. But then his eyes fall on the cut on her cheek, and he remembers that this is the only way it can be, that he has rendered all other options impossible. Post 1x11

your name is the splinter inside me reviews
"I want you, Will," Alana's voice, thick with threatening tears, falls like a cleaver between them. "But you...you just need me." The muscles in her face tighten into a childlike mask of hurt, and she amends, "You need SOMEONE. You start to feel out of control, and you grab onto whatever - or whoever - is closest. I could be anybody."

Anchors and Grenades reviews
"Alana still believes what she said this morning; there's something so permanent and irrevocable about the word broken, like it's a final state, an end point. So, no, even after tonight, Alana does think Will is broken...but he is quite possibly breaking. And that terrifies her." Will/Alana, kiss aftermath.

someday my pain will mark you reviews
Alana leans into him a little as they walk, and it feels so familiar and comfortable and right. When they started this thing, over a year ago now, they kept telling each other no strings without realizing they were already tied together, that in months and months of friendship they'd gotten inextricably tangled together.

Alex's face darkens inexplicably. 'Actually, she probably has some idea.'" Arizona and Meredith centric fic, kind of turns more Callie/Arizona focused at the end. Oneshot.
