Author has written 21 stories for White Collar, Criminal Minds, Streets Of San Francisco, and CSI: Miami.

Welcome to my profile! I’m Daniela from Germany, and I’m not good at doing this. I never know what so say. I guess that’s why it took me over a year to finally put something about me on my profile page. Seeing that you’re here to get to know more about me I’ll try my best, so here it comes:

I discovered and fell in love with fanfiction about ten years ago through the show “Stargate SG-1”. This was also where I wrote my first piece for about a year later (which still isn’t posted anywhere, I hope I’ll get the courage to do it at one point). I didn’t really start writing though until seven years ago when a friend of mine encouraged me to try and do a story for “Criminal Minds”. Since then I’ve been writing more or less regularly.

My favorite genres - both to read and to write - are missing scenes and character studies. Basically my stories are about things I noticed while watching an episode. I’m also a hurt/comfort fan but I’m not comfortable yet to write that genre.

I’m currently posting both older and newer stories in no particular order. Apart from the fandoms I’ve been uploading fanfics for I also have some for other shows (“Due South” and “21 Jump Street”) that I might upload if I get the courage to do so.

I’m still more of a reader than a writer, so I don’t do as many stories as most writers here. I write as my muse tells me to, mostly when I catch something in a scene/episode. So pretty much all of my stories will be episode-related. I usually don't do prompts since I'm terrible at that. I have to find something in it that I wanna explore in order for it to work.

I’m a member of “Cable Car Chronicles”, a group of writers for “The Streets of San Francisco” under that pen name. Feel free to check out our stories.

My beta is the talented “1983Sarah” (check out her stories, she’s a great writer).

I also post my stories parallel to here on my Livejournal account which you can find here: purple-nights.livejournal.com

    Be worth it reviews
    Normally Hughes was a good judge of character. With Neal though, Reese learned, there was more than meets the eye. Spoiler for "Threads". This is my way of saying goodbye to James Rebhorn (RIP).

    Just a hat reviews
    "A knot in his stomach formed as he saw the familiar fedora lying on the floor." How could a nice evening out go wrong so fast? Rated T cause I'm a bit paranoid.

    The only way reviews
    Peter was sitting in front of the hearing board committee knowing that this didn't matter anymore. This is my version of Peter's toughts during the hearing at the end of "Judgment Day". It's sort of a companion to my story "Maybe, just maybe" in that it's happening at the same time and show both sides. You don't have to read one to understand the other though.

    Just for once reviews
    A deeper look into a scene from "Shattered Image". Steve didn't immediately tell Mike about what he had found out at the airport. Why?

    I know there are so many other tags to "In the wind" out there but I decided to share my version of Neal's thoughts in that last scene, too.

    All that counts reviews
    Being taken hostage by the UnSub wasn't the ideal way to take him down. It had required skills. And trust. Missing Scene for LDSK (1x06)
