Author has written 31 stories for Scott & Bailey, MI-5/Spooks, Last Tango in Halifax, and Misc. Tv Shows.

Currently obsessed with Scott and Bailey. I hadn't written fanfic in about five years until I watched this programme.

I'm mad about grammar and I love language, though I sometimes abuse both of them on purpose. I don't like writing about myself but I thought this ought to say something.

Aftershocks by ForFanfic reviews
Neither Gill Murray nor Julie Dodson are in quite their right minds after Gill's harrowing ordeal. Gratuitous smut inevitable.

Whoever Saves One Life by HedgieX reviews
A year ago, something happened by the pond. Since then, Janet has sat on the bath side and cried into a flannel each morning, and Rachel has replayed Gill's last moments over and over again. The two women haven't talked since Christmas, but Janet knows her friendship with Rachel can't be thrown away; without each other, they won't begin to heal. One-shot turned two-shot. For Amy.

Put Your Spikes In reviews
A "missing scene" fic for 4x7 - after Gill, Julie and Janet's conversation in Gill's office, Gill is upset. Julie tracks her down and fuzziness and angst ensues.

How Millie Learned to Talk (The Bletchley Circle) reviews
Millie can speak fourteen languages, but some things are still hard to say. Fourteen moments in Millie's life, each one tied to a language she learned (yes I'm taking a guess at what some of them are).

12 Days of Scott & Bailey Christmas reviews
Twelve stories, told in short sections over twelve days, with a new one beginning each day. It's a bit of an experiment really so I don't know if it will work but I hope so.

Gillian and Robbie finally get to go out for a meal, some time after series 1 finishes. Fluff with bits of family stuff thrown in.

Heat & Light reviews
Gill's first case for MIT would have to be a big one. She is trying to adjust to her new job and new team, look out for Sammy, deal with Dave making her life difficult, handle pressure from the brass, and solve a murder or two... but at least she is thrown together with an old friend who she hasn't seen in a while.

Everything (The Bletchley Circle) reviews
Susan tries to decide what to tell Timothy at the end of Series 1. Just a little musing, from Susan's POV, with Millie/Susan history. I can't believe there isn't a section for The Bletchley Circle on here, or more fic!

This is not what we do reviews
Janet and Rachel are drawn to each other but don't want to admit what this might mean. A series of Janet/Rachel moments from across the episodes - not in chronological order. Very fluffy and sometimes just a little bit angsty.

A chance meeting in a supermarket leads to more than either party expected from a simple shopping trip. Harsh words and even harsher truths.

All Different Kinds reviews
This started when my imagination ran away with the phrase "She's all yours" and the looks between Rachel, Gill and Helen in the Series 3 trailer. It has now taken on a life of its own. I'm sorry to say I have very little idea where it's going except that it's me exploring the strange relationships between the three of them by making them stranger.

Can't Must reviews
Post 3.05. Louise's point of view. How does Helen react to the news that she will be charged with an offence? How do you live with that person? How do you cope when loving someone hurts so much?

The Darkness Shivers reviews
Set between 3.04 and 3.05. Helen and Louise talk and come to some kind of reconciliation. Dark and disturbing subject matter. This may tricky to follow because it is told from Helen's point of view.

"I love Helen, and I know she loves me, but sometimes it's hard for her, it's hard just to deal with things. You don't understand. And that can be difficult to live with, you know. It's hard to love someone who hurts that much." ... Written after Series 3, episode 1 - a look at Helen Bartlett from the POV of her partner Louise.

Let It Be Me reviews
The best of lies are built on the truth. There are things that Ruth does not allow herself to think about, things that nevertheless shape her life and relationships. Something happened when she was eighteen and she will never let herself forget the lessons it taught her. Inspired by episode 4.10 (Diana). Quite dark.

Drowning reviews
Post-series 2. Rachel is struggling with everything that has happened to her recently and she doesn't cope in the best of ways. At least one person is determined to help her through it but will Rachel have the sense to cling to the friendship that is offered? Oneshot.

Turn in my Arms reviews
A Rachel/Gill oneshot. An after-hours drink, a talk about a case, and the way things go. This could be read as a prequel to She Who Will Tell Me but it absolutely stands on its own as well. Pure fluff.

In This Together reviews
This is weird. You have been warned! A dark, crack, AU-fic inspired by an Amanda Palmer video. It is also a musical. Think Chicago meets Mother's Union tea dance and you might be somewhere along the right lines. I'm sorry. I wrote it for a dare. I don't even know how to categorise it!

She who will tell me reviews
Gill/Rachel/Janet - inspired by Aimeefran's video "I'm Only Human". Gill is with Rachel but her own fears make her seem distant. Rachel doesn't believe Gill really cares and on a drunken night out with Janet things start to happen between the two friends. Betrayal. Trust. Love. Pain. Choices. This is a fairly high T I think but it's not explicit.

Making an Exhibits Officer of Himself reviews
All Kevin wanted was to be the one in charge of watching the DVDs collected from the Birkenshaws' house. A funny take on what might have happened if his little dream came true. Very silly.
