Author has written 17 stories for Sherlock, and Harry Potter.

About Me:

Grad student. Finding herself. In love. With humanity. The stars. A musician. And birds. :) Unsure of where the road of life will take her. Spends free time singing, laughing, hanging out, sleeping, or playing video games. Dislikes church but loves God. Loves coffee shops. One of those annoying public writers. Won't ever finish writing a novel but will start at least nine hundred and ninety nine times. Lacks motivation most of the time. Enjoys the company of others, bad movies, talking until two in the morning, and Star Trek. Wears shirts with geeky sayings, watches the Big Bang Theory, eats popcorn. Normal in her own way.


Currently I'm on a Sherlock kick, but I've been known to write Harry Potter pieces as well! Mainly short pieces without continuation. Being a college student means I write when the muse strikes and then usually leave it alone. However, I greatly appreciate all reviews and critique and will try to respond to each personally. Thank you!


I am pleased to say that a few of my stories are available in Italian at EFP Fanfiction, translated by username (on that site) xX_Eli_Sev_Xx. She is located here on under the username Midnight.Stars.Dust. Enjoy!


Character -- Sherlock (obviously) is high up on my list, but I also have a huge respect (surprisingly) for Mycroft Holmes.
Ship -- While I realize we'll probably never see it in the BBC show (and it certainly wasn't Conan Doyle Canon) I ship Johnlock & Mystrade.
Line -- "All lives end, all hearts are broken. Caring is not an advantage."
Fan Piece I've Come Across -- "Moriarty set on a wall, Sherlock Holmes had a great fall. All Lestrade's horses and all Mycroft's men couldn't put Watson together again."

Harry Potter
Character -- Severus Snape. Hands down. No questions.
Ship -- Hate me if you must but I like to ship Severus/Hermione.
Line -- "After all this time? Always."
Fan Piece -- The entirety of Princess of Gryffindor by Aurette (look her up here!) is my absolute favorite. A close second is For the Potion Master's Amusement by snape.submiss.

Character -- Loki Laufeyson. Followed secondly by Bruce Banner.
Ship -- Bruce/Tony (Science Boyfriends for the win!)
Line -- "I remember a shadow, living in the shade of your greatness. I remember you tossing me into an abyss, I who was and should be king!"
Fan Piece -- Any Avengers piece from LxIsxJustice, but particularly Fairytales and Bullet Dreams.

Welcome to Night Vale
Character -- ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD... or Cecil. I like Cecil a lot too.
Ship -- Cecil/Carlos
Line -- "We understand so much. But the sky behind those lights (mostly void, partially stars)? That sky reminds us that we don't understand even more."
Fan Piece -- I really like seeing all the fan art that WTNV produces. Very cool stuff guys!

Character -- Ianto Jones
Ship -- Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones
Line -- "Mobiles, landlines, tin cans with bits of string, everything, absolutely everything: no phones, phones all broken. Hello, anyone there? No... because the phones aren't working."
Fan Piece -- Guys. This video broke my heart... search 'A Blip in Time (Jack/Ianto)' on Youtube. Bring tissues.

Doctor Who
Doctor -- Nine! Ten is a close second, and then Four.
Companion -- Captain Jack Harkness (New Who), Sara Jane Smith (Classic Who)
Humanoid -- Wilfred Mott
Evil Humanoid -- The Master
Alien -- The Ood
Evil Alien -- Daleks
Ship -- Ten/Rose, Doctor/River, Jack/Anyone
Line -- "The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things..."
Fan Piece -- I'm not a huge fan of Eleven (though he was my First Doctor), but the piece of fanart by Alicexz at Deviant Art titled "The Roar of Our Stars" is absolutely fantastic.

Captain by pandorad24 reviews
"There you are," said Mycroft. "Captain Holmes. Now, stop this nonsense, Sherlock. Captains don't cry." In which a young Sherlock Holmes receives Mycroft's own special brand of comfort, in the way only a brother would know he needed. Kidlock oneshot.

Duvet Green by mazarin reviews
Sherlock restructures his mind palace so it looks like 221b. What he puts in John's room is a surprise, and a revelation Slash.

Post Tenebras, Lux by Loten reviews
"After Darkness, Light." A chance meeting ten years after the war may not be just a coincidence, and may prove to have very far-reaching consequences. A story of many things, but primarily of healing. SS/HG; rated M for later chapters. Complete.

Oh, Brother, Why Art Thou Weeping? reviews
"When John first becomes aware that the relationship between Mycroft and Sherlock is slightly more than strained, he has known each man for three months exactly." An interesting take on the relationship between Sherlock and Mycroft with an emphasis on how nothing is really as it seems, and how you never really know someone, even your own brother. AU-ish.

Conversations reviews
A series of conversations between Mycroft and Sherlock as children. Assumes Mycroft is at least 10 years older, but that's not really important. Short, simple, and, if all went well, quite sweet. Fluff. Read, review, and enjoy!

Aftermath reviews
"His fingers dig into the fine suit, wool – it had been cold out today, is it still cold? He won't let go. He promised." A somewhat continuation of "Brother, Mine", emerging from my desire to give Sherlock some sort of closure. Character death. Pairings: Johnlock/Mystrade, nothing explicit. Angsty. You've been warned. Please read, review, and enjoy!

Blood of My Blood reviews
"...but he's afraid if he takes his eyes off of Sherlock for one moment, he'll come crashing to the ground." Another angsty Holmes' brothers story, focusing on the Fall. What if it had been Mycroft, instead of John, outside of Barts that day? No happy ever after, spoilers, some gore, character death (for real). Un-betaed. Read, review, and enjoy!

Brother, Mine reviews
"He thinks it would be highly inappropriate to laugh right now, but it will be funny in hindsight, won't it? Right? They'll sit around and laugh about it, because they're going to survive this." Mycroft and Sherlock, brothers until the end. Character Death. Combination of a low mood and a case of writer's block. Short but sad. Please R&R.

Sine Nomine reviews
Without a name. A series of one-shots inspired by 'Sherlock Head Canons' on tumblr. Cute, funny, angsty, all that, and more. Updated irregularly, but each chapter is a short story on its own. All characters, all times, and if there are ships they will be John/Sherlock and Mycroft/Lestrade. R&R and enjoy! (If you can think of a better summary, let me know!)

Come Home: A Study in Grief reviews
"It's raining, Sherlock." "I have an umbrella." :: 7 years after the Fall, John returns to London fighting a war against new demons. A character study in grief for both Sherlock and John, may seem a bit out of character at times, but this is how I imagine them handling their separate griefs. Has a happy ending, I promise. Johnlock. R&R. Thanks!

In This Life reviews
"Our lives, they are all tangled up in one another and there's nothing we can do to change it. Life after life I've met you and they haven't all be beautiful but they are us. It's always been us." An interesting, if a bit strange, exploration of Sherlock Holmes' and John Watson's many meetings across time. Small mentions of drug use/violence/suicide. R&R and enjoy!

The Only One in the World reviews
"I hate to think how many Sherlock Holmes you had to run into before you found the right one." Years down the road, Sherlock and John meet again. Sequel to to "A Game of Riddles". Short, fun, and cute with a little bit of angst.

A Game of Riddles reviews
"Will you really call me up when you come back to London, even if its twenty years from now? Yes Sherlock, I will." A young John Watson stumbles across a younger Sherlock Holmes hidden behind some rubbish bins in London. Much liberty taken with timelines, as John is about 19 and Sherlock is 9. Cute, short, and fun. Read and review!

Like a Roadmap through the Past
Sister piece to "The Stories our Scars May Tell". This time, Sherlock gets to do a little exploring of his own. Fluffy, funny, and angsty at parts. Don't have to have read previous piece to understand, but why not? No spoilers, assumes established John/Sherlock slash. Rated K , because John really isn't in the mood. ;-)

The Stories Our Scars May Tell reviews
On a hot afternoon, John does a little exploring of Sherlock's past by mapping the scars on his body. Established John/Sherlock relationship, some talk of violence but nothing graphic, mentions of Sherlock's past drug use. As a result, rated T to be safe. No spoilers for the series... it is fluffy though! :-) Read, review, and enjoy! Note: Un-beta-ed, so please ignore any errors?

I Know, Idiot reviews
An incredible fight in 221B reveals that John and Sherlock have been dancing around certain certainties for at least a year. A bit of fluff based off of a piece of fan-art I found. Read, review, and enjoy. Mild slash, mild cursing.

Actions and Their Consequences reviews
"If there isn't... if he never sees Sherlock's eyes again, never feels the warmth of his touch or smells his ridiculously expensive shampoo, at least he will be free of the ghosts." Three years later and John finally finds his own way of dealing with the Fall. Spoilers for Series 2, and warnings for suicidal themes, character death, and not so happy ever after. R&R, please!

Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep reviews
"Of course, when one's best friend has just come back from the dead, one can hardly complain about reading him poetry." A story of reappearance, reunification, and the start of forgiveness. Set three years after the Fall, spoilers for Series 2. Guest appearances: Mary and (of course) dear brother Mycroft. R&R and enjoy!

What if someone different had met Harry at King's Cross Station during the Final Battle? What if instead of being sent back, he was given a choice? AU, Alternate to The Deathly Hallows. Check it out and R&R!

Together Again reviews
"All Lestrade's horses and all Mycroft's men couldn't put Sherlock together again..." Since Sherlock was a small boy, Mycroft has been around to pick up the pieces. Why, then, does Sherlock consider him an archenemy? Is there a chance at repair after the Fall? - A character study in brotherhood, pain, and forgiveness. Rated for language and some violence. R&R please!
