Author has written 16 stories for Twilight.

Australian, mother, would-be writer.

I exist in the no-man's land of loving Twilight and also loving the whole anti-Twilight fandom too. I'll ship anyone if the writing is smart and makes me feel it.

I love getting comments and reviews! Seriously, it makes my day (yes, I'm fundamentally insecure) so I encourage anyone who reads my stuff to leave me a note, question, comment etc.

I'm really too old to be doing this.

I write for Twilight. Rosalie and Emmett are my favourite characters; I'm not overly fond of Bella and Edward but I try to be fair to them in what I write! I love writing and reading about the Cullens and their interactions as a family.

And, like everyone else on this site, I don't own Twilight, or any of the characters. If I did, I doubt I'd be writing fanfiction about it...I think I'd be rolling around in my piles of money, preferably with Kellan Lutz for company.

At the moment I am crossposting here and AO3 under the same username - staringatthesky- more mature content will be over there only.

Someone to vote no reviews
New Moon from Rosalie's POV. Everyone knows what Rosalie did in New Moon, but why did she do it? Why did she find Edward and tell him that Alice saw Bella's death? What happened in the family's past that haunts Rosalie and makes her so fiercely protective of her family? Strictly canon as far as New Moon events, but I have made up quite a bit of backstory.
