Author has written 1 story for Law and Order.

I'm just another high-school student hoping - despite the crappy salary and ridiculous hours - to one day become a prosecutor. All I want is to spend the rest of my life in a courtroom. I guess that's where my love for Law and Order comes from.

Anyway, due to my unhealthy obsession with all things legal, my fanfics will probably be more focused on the legalities of cases than the relationships between the characters. However, I do love Mike and Connie as a couple, so that will probably make its way in there.

I'm a wannabe-attorney first and a writer second, so the dialogue and descriptions in my stories will probably be horrible. I do apologize.

Favorite Quotes:

Jack McCoy: Defense attorneys distort the facts. They twist evidence. They will not only go to the mat for their clients, they will take that mat and toss it out the window as far as they can. They are not bound by the truth. They are bound to obfuscate it if it serves to get their clients acquitted. And they should be commended for it, and it is what makes the system work.

Jack McCoy: If I don't leave here with a guilty plea, Mr. Corley, I promise, you'll do 45 years hard time. They'll wheel me out of my retirement home to be at your parole hearings.

Jack McCoy: This country has always been a beacon to the world for liberty and justice. That's why we keep our borders open. But we're also a beacon for another kind of people, for criminals and con men; we rely on the law to protect us from them. Sometimes, that's not enough. Do we need more law, less freedom? Do we cross out parts of the Constitution? I've learned that's not the answer. The answer is that each one of us is responsible to everyone else. Not one of us can afford to turn a blind eye. By respecting the laws we do have, by living up to the true meaning of the word "citizen," we preserve our common good. Through his deliberate ignorance, Mr. Radford allowed a criminal enterprise to flourish, innocent people to be killed. He allowed a cancer to grow. This is where it has to stop. Here in this court room, with you.

Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: The bottom line Ms. Sanders. Where there’s a law, I’ll enforce it. Where there’s a crime, I’ll prosecute it. And where there’s a victim, I’ll speak for that victim. That’s my bottom line.

Romance, friendship, humor, magic, dreamwalking, character development, botany, fluff, hand-to-hand fighting, lemons, more magic, and puns. ED trigger warning. Some violence, serious sexytimes. Worth your time! More info at the start of chapter 1.
