Author has written 20 stories for Once Upon a Time.

I find writing profiles challenging, but mine needed an update, so here I am in the middle of the night with a glass of hard cider. I guess the most relevant things to tell you would be the following:

Huuuuuge Evil Regal over here, and my writing reflects that. All of my stories - and I do mean ALL - are Regina-centric.

I ship Regina/just about anyone, but I super ship Outlaw Queen and Evil Charming, so if you ship either of these, scroll down to find my stash.

Naturally, my inspiration for writing comes in those hours during which most normal human beings are fast asleep. I work best when I'm near deliriously tired, so sometimes I have some typos.

Reviews make me so incredibly happy, you have no idea. It's much easier to write when I have active feedback on what people are thinking and what they'd like to see. I don't bite, I promise. Constructive criticism is equally welcomed. If you're taking the time to review, it means you care, and I appreciate that.

Last, but not least: It may take me for-ev-er to finish a story, but I will never abandon my fics. I put them on the back-burner from time to time when I'm discouraged or pressed for time, but my biggest pet-peeve is an unfinished story. I'm not going to do that to you.

I am, however, going to go make myself a piece of toast (something that is applicable constantly and at any time of day, so I feel justified in including it here).

Story Update Info: (as of 4/13/2015)

I've had a CRAZY work schedule lately, and I've been super sick, so I'm playing catch up. Sorry for the huge delays, but I'm doing my best to get back in the flow.

Pride Before A Fall: Reaalllly want to work on this one, but I'm gonna finish Holiday Spirit first.

Deception: On brief hold until I can finish Holiday Spirit.

Behind Enemy Lines: Dabble in this when I can't stand looking at HS anymore.

Back to the Beginning: On brief hold.

Holiday Spirit: Chapter 29 is undergoing the excruciating editing process.

Catch Me by letgolaughing reviews
AU where Regina and David find themselves tumbling through the hat in to the Enchanted Forest instead of Emma and Snow. Rated M for future chapters. I suck at summaries ;)

Baker's Dozen by SomewhereApart reviews
He comes in every day at 8:15, orders the same thing, and flirts with the girl behind the counter. Regina watches him from the kitchen of her bakery - appreciates, but doesn't approach. But as fall turns into winter, things begin to change. 13 weeks of modern AU Outlaw Queen, set in New York City.

New York State of Mind by Addicted1 reviews
Most of Henry's gnarled family tree has decided to move to Manhattan. Robin and Regina pack amidst their banter, while Rumple and Belle box up decades worth of magical trinkets (not counting a spare (fake) dagger). OQ, non-optimistic Rumbelle, ambiguous Golden Queen history, and a dash of Snow Queen. No plot, just characters. Pre-S4, ignores the time portal (no Frozen, no Marian).

AU. Three weeks after the return of magic, a far more sinister enemy has risen to threaten the lives of everyone in Storybroke. /'Physical pain is nothing any more.

Imprisoned by Once.Evil.Regal reviews
My very own season 2. Magic has returned to Storybrooke, and Regina seizes her opportunity for revenge. But plans go awry as an unexpected enemy surfaces, leaving the townspeople reeling in the wake of a tragic loss. No Swan Queen, but lots of good Emma/Regina, Regina/Henry and Emma/Henry moments to come. Plenty of Snow/Charming/Emma as well.
