Author has written 11 stories for Once Upon a Time.

A mediocre music major who struggles to remain diurnal on a daily basis. My ships are strange and sundry.

Dinosaurs fossilize faster than I write, sorry about that.

This account exclusively houses my Once Upon a Time fanfic, which seems to be all I'm writing lately. (For the record, I'm a diehard Golden Queen shipper, but have been known to write other things.)

Also, it goes without saying that essentially everything I write is coauthored by my beta. Typically I write, and Flyting supervises. For those that care, the relationship reverses for the following stories: 28 Years Later, I Remember, and To Stay the Morning Star.

Monsters take what they want. And what Belle can't remember won't hurt her. [Dubcon]

The Art of Trolling reviews
In a small town like Storybrooke, it's impossible to sneeze without somebody noticing. (Pre-Pilot.)

28 Years Later reviews
It was amazing how quickly a simple plan could go completely to hell. Centuries of meticulous planning and patience all came tumbling down like a house of cards. All it took was a few seconds' impulse by one well-meaning lunatic. There was no countermeasure to bottle and store against insanity. They were all going to die here and it was all his fault. (ZOMBIE AU)

The Land You Promised Us reviews
The Mayor wakes up in Storybrooke only to discover she is married to Mr Gold because, as far as the Curse is concerned, love and hate are really just two sides of the same coin. It also enjoys a good trolling. [AU]

I Remember reviews
She had forgotten. She had forgotten everything. Her home, her father, the sound of rain-everything. Regina's curse had kept these memories from her. (Belle processes her feelings post 2x01.)

The Darkness Knows Your Name reviews
There is a town in Maine that every monster you've ever feared calls home. When Emma Swan receives a strange letter, she is drawn to the ruined town of Storybrooke, where a malevolent evil has waited 28 years for her return. (Part 2 of the "In That Darkness When I'm Blind" series.) [Rumbelle & SQ][AU]

To Stay the Morning Star reviews
Fairies do not feel love, not the way that humans do. Which isn't to say that fairies cannot love. Every creature, however poor, however wicked, is capable of loving another—every creature save one, and that is an existence so dark, so cold and hideous as to be unthinkable—and fairies love wholly and more purely than any other being.

A Necessary Evil reviews
When musicians bargain with dark forces for limitless talent, the soul is the customary currency. The Pied Piper is rather put out when Rumplestiltskin does not accept this as a valid form of payment.

Warm in My Hands reviews
Rumplestiltskin can pinpoint the exact moment when everything went wrong and for once, it wasn't his fault. Not really. Belle, on the other hand, never saw it coming. An AU in which Regina fails to enact the Dark Curse. (Part 1 of the "In That Darkness When I'm Blind" series.)
