Author has written 13 stories for Sherwood Smith, Firefly, Sherlock Holmes, Misc. Movies, and Harry Potter.
Hey, all! I'm Black Rose, scourge of the Sherwood Smith board! I live in Colorado, and I have two dogs and a cat. I wright for the Sherwood Smith and Sherlock Holmes boards, but I will also dabble in the Buffy/Angel/Firefly areas if I'm bored. My favorite story of all time is The Baker Street Three, and I made a web cite about it. Check my homepage link; the graphics took forever.

Viva la résistance! Les Vies De Luciole! Économiser la Série!

ZORK! This is the greatest game in the world. You can play Zork I, II, III, and more online! Wow... 0_o

I also keep a plot bunnie called Top Hat, who lives in Harry Houdini's "Top Hat", hence the name. He has a terrible bite, and I am sometimes compelled to wright random fics on random subjects for no apparent reason whatsoever. It should be noted that the only fics I plan are...well...I'll tell you when they are not the work of Top Hat, and his fake Lestat Fangs.


Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
-Robert Frost, "Fire and Ice"

When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.
