Author has written 22 stories for Bones, Doctor Who, West Wing, Supernatural, Star Trek: 2009, and StarTrek: The Original Series.
My personal philosophy toward writing is this: Brevity isn’t just the soul of wit, it’s the soul of good writing.
I find it remarkably tedious to read novels that are 400 pages too long (here’s looking at you, Rowling), or fanfics that express in 7k words what they could in 700. I realize that this philosophy may not be reflected in my earlier writings (dear God, I must rip “Le Mien Prive Seulement” apart one of these days), but as I come into my own as a writer I find that this simple truth resonates throughout everything I do.
I realize there are drawbacks to this way of thinking. I’ve noticed that my descriptions of character and scene are sorely lacking in some places, although in fanfiction I think it’s sort of ridiculous when authors spend entire paragraphs describing a character/setting we’re all very familiar with. Also, as my own writing style is a bit more ambiguous than most, I sometimes leave out too many details that I consider inconsequential, which frustrates readers.
I like to think of myself as an impressionist, but it’s a flawed analogy.
I write a healthy mix of the ridiculous and the (relatively) serious, or so I like to think, and I try to experiment with different styles, genres, and themes as often as possible.
Expect to see mostly one-shots and drabbles on this page. It frustrates me to no end when I discover quality WIPs that are on/go on hiatus or are abandoned, so I will restrain myself from posting anything that can’t stand alone or that I don’t feel confident I will complete within five weeks. I do have a personal goal to complete two multichapter/multipart fics this year, but I have decided to write those stories in full and only post them as I go through the final editing process.
I’m open to almost any fandom and pairing, except for anything focused on conscious, consensual incest. I can’t do it. Maybe if I stumbled across a very very very well done story I could stomach it, but so far I haven’t, so it’s a moot point. You will not see any Wincest or Dexter/Deb etc. on my favorite stories page or in my writing. I support an individual's right to engage in any activity/relationship they choose so long as it is safe, sane, and consensual. But that doesn't mean I have to read about it.
My biggest pet peeves are inconsistent timelines and violation of canon (unless, of course, you go AU). I'm something of a continuity monster as well.
Anything by Joss Whedon or Neil Gaiman, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Bones, House, Pride and Prejudice, Inuyasha, Fushigi Yuugi, Labyrinth, Harry Potter, X-men, Sherlock, Merlin, Lord of the Rings, Supernatural, and Star Trek (TOS and Reboot).
I like many, many more, but these are the only ones I read and/or write avidly enough to mention.
Works in (various stages of) Progress
1.) In the Wings, Part II-- Where was Rebecca during "The End in the Beginning?"
1.) 100-- a series of stand-alone drabbles totaling 100 words each and posted in groups of threes.

In an effort to keep writing regularly, I have challenged myself to post at least one fic every calendar month that totals 300 words or more. Due to ratings I cannot archive all of my monthly submissions to this site. Below, you will find a comprehensive and regularly updated list of my off-site fanfiction. If you have put me on your author alerts, but have not received an alert for a full month, check back here for updates.
