Author has written 7 stories for Glee.

Hey, all. I'm a forty-five year-old dude living in Pittsburgh. I only recently discovered the world of fan fiction and thought I'd try my hand at a Kurtofsky piece. There may be more. Review me if you're so inclined.

Things that may or may not be important include:

I love Dave Karofsky.

My amazing partner is also named David K. It's a coincidence.

Dave Karofsky is the entire reason why I ever watched Glee.

Some people think that the fans ruined Glee. No, the show was lousy to begin with. Dave Karofsky was its single asset.

I love Rock n Roll. I love all kinds of music, but Rock n Roll, particularly the harder stuff, is my thing.

I have done a great deal of writing in my life, but I've only known about Fan Fiction for a little over a year.

I love film: the more abstract, the more I'm likely to love it.

I love art also.

Unwritten reviews
Dave Karofsky has been going to college in Portland for a couple of years and rooming with his best friend. Dave does a favor for his friend on a seemingly typical Saturday night, and things change for Dave and another resident of Portland. Based upon a friend's original idea. Rated M. Foul language, drugs/alcohol, graphic sex

Heart Plus Five reviews
This is a Kurtofsky Valentine's Day story which takes place in the universe of my earlier story "Strange Currencies", after the actions of the previous story. The general rating will not exceed PG-13 with some adult language and situations but no explicit adult material: basically a debatably pointless work of fluff.

You Asked reviews
A friend had asked, after I'd repeatedly told him that I felt the show Glee was beneath the ability of Max Adler and beneath the quality with which the character Dave Karofsky had been rendered, under what circumstances could I conceive of Max Adler's/Dave Karofsky's satisfactory return to the show? This was my answer. I do not own Glee nor the characters depicted herein.

The Last Fan-Fiction reviews
This is a Dave-centric story which analyzes the practice of shipping and the various, often unlikely, ships which occur. The main focus will be the pairing of Dave Karofsky and Sebastian Smythe. This is NOT a Smythofsky story; if you are a sensitive reader who is partial to this pairing, you might want to avoid this work. This could be called a work of Anti-Fan-Fiction.

Lima Noir reviews
Kurtofsky; Klaine; Sebastian; Sandy Ryerson. The true nature and events of Glee are revealed as Lima's attractive veneer is stripped away revealing darkness and depravity beneath. Warnings: references to attempted suicide, adult language, graphic sexual situations, abusive relationships, references to self-harm and mental illness, drug use, rape, gun violence, and character death.

Strange Currencies reviews
This tells a story of the several months leading up to and following David Karofsky's suicide attempt. A Kurtofsky ship approached with logic and awareness. This story respects canon through "On My Way", after which it corrects the gross mistakes and omissions of Season 3 definitively and negates Season 4. "...with love come strange currencies."

Between the Chapters reviews
This graphic story will follow the sexual explorations of Kurt and Dave as developed in the less-graphic "Strange Currencies". This is dedicated to my very own David K. provided he's not too freaked out at the prospect as well as all of the readers of "Strange Currencies" who have requested some bluer content.
