Author has written 9 stories for Once Upon a Time, and Agent Carter.

I am constantly trying to improve my writing. The stuff you read here is for entertainment purposes and practice. I appreciate the time you've taken to read through my works and hope you've enjoyed them.

Please check out this tumblr post made by me for important APK notes.

It details a lot of how Regina and Henry's relationship will be repaired and developed further.

And, yes, they will be watching Brave together, likely in part 3.

I'm a fan of sleeping. And video games. I recently dove into Lost Girl and don't think I'll ever resurface.

Generally, I write when I have a multitude of feelings, or when I experience something that I feel has failed to capitalize on its potential. Hence, a lot of OUAT. My writings tend to be an exercise into processing my own personal feelings about the subject and various personal struggles.

I deeply appreciate those who take the time to read my works.

Even if you don't leave a review, I love that you've taken tthe time and chance on reading my stories. All of my anon reviewers, I wish I could thank you personally, as well. Thank you for taking the time to let me know that my writing has improved or a particular aspect of my story that could be improved upon or that you enjoyed.

Personally, I'm awful at getting the time to delve into a whole lot of stories and then to leave a review. There are so many talented authors out here and there, wherever you may lurk, scribbling furiously, typing like mad. I appreciate all of you more than words can say.

Thanks for supporting art, creativity and yourself.


Things my energies are centered around at the moment:

BioShock Infinite

Lost Girl

Swan Queen

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Bomb Girls
