Author has written 25 stories for Revolution.

My Primary TV Fandoms include: Alias, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, Bones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Castle, Firefly, Revolution, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager.

My Primary Book Fandoms include: A Song of Ice and Fire, Black Jewels Series, Dragonriders of Pern, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and the Valdemar universe.

I last wrote fanfic about a decade ago, for Alias; now the newest JJ Abrams show - Revolution - has stirred my creative juices.

I'm a scientist so constructing hypotheses about how disprate pieces of evidence are connected in the most logical and elegant manner possible is kind of my job. Taking this training and applying it to fanfic has been fun. It's been fantastic getting to play with words again!

Semi migrated over to AO3.

Repair by dareyoutoread reviews
Begins right before the mid-season finale. Ensemble piece with Bass as the focus (though you'll get lots of other POVs - including, of course, Miles). Not slash. Miles had several options in that power plant face-off - this story will focus on the aftermath of one option we haven't seen yet (so, slight AU). Strong T primarily for language.

Miles pointed to a cloud formation, "What do you see?" Rachel examined it for a few seconds, and then declared matter-of-factly, "Mesoamerica."
