Author has written 8 stories for Once Upon a Time.

I am a writer—a picky one.

I am also obsessed (I do not use that word lightly) with Captain Swan from Once Upon a Time. There is something so incredibly… hot… about Emma and Hook together. They are taking over my brain and muse.

They really are the perfect match for each other.

If a mistake sneaks in, or formatting is wonky, please PM and tell me.

I always welcome feedback.

(FYI - You never need to apologize for a long comment or "comment bombing" chapters. Those are what all writers love and adore and you have likely just fed their/my muse. So thank you.)

Oh, I finally have a tumblr account and I still have no idea how to really use it (brand new Jan ’14).

I also post at AO3. Most if it will be cross posting, but it is also where co-authored and/or text (phone & twitter) based fics go since they are not allowed here.

One is the hilarious Once Upon a Tweet (co-written with Arandil): the twitter feed of Once Upon a Time characters, because there’s a magic app allowing the Enchanted Forest to tweet to other realms. And yes, it doesn’t follow my usual grammar and punctuation rules.

We also do (did) "tweet-caps" of the OuaT season 3b episodes (and yes, we will likely do more, just as soon as our schedules mesh up again).

So enjoy, come say “hi” on tumblr, leave a review, follow me, and let’s all join the incredible ship of Captain Swan.

UPDATED November 2020 - Missing Pieces is updated again, but due to COVID and never being along, updates will likely remain sporadic, depending on if we get nice weather and I can escape my house. Warning, long hiatuses will sometimes occur due to life and the lack of monetary compensation one does not get from fic, placing it on the bottom of priority list. However, I do not plan on abandoning it. The best way to help it along is to comment or PM, as without those who did, I would have figured no one was interested anymore.

11-3-20: For some reason FF is glitching and the chapter I posted is not viewable to me and others, although it is for some, as I have gotten a few comments. I updated on 11-2-20, a chapter called Impossible Possibilities for MP, but it is not showing up via the link (I get an error saying it takes 15 minutes to upload sometimes, but it's been more like 17 hours at this point). It shows as a part of the fic in my editing, but I cannot figure out how to view it. I can only see the previous chapter. Just keep checking and hopefully it will update, or find it at AO3 for now, which is working.

Updated 11-8-20: FF finally updated the last chapter after a week of not having new chapter updates show, despite notifications going out. It was only viewable (apparently) on the app, not on websites.

Modern!AU Captain Swan. "It was a one-time thing," is definitely one of the last things you want to say to your new boss on your first day at work. For lawyer Emma Swan, this case is open-and-shut. The verdict? Completely hopeless.

Zemblanity by lenfaz reviews
William Boyd coined the term zemblanity to mean somewhat the opposite of serendipity: "making unhappy, unlucky and expected discoveries occurring by design". A zemblanity is, effectively, an "unpleasant unsurprise". It derives from Novaya Zemlya (or Nova Zembla), a cold, barren land with many features opposite to the lush Sri Lanka (Serendip). Soulmates gone wrong AU.

Kind Hearts and Cat Flaps by Ooshka reviews
Emma Swan wasn't a cat person, but she'd come to appreciate her cat. That didn't mean she needed another one hanging around, especially not a noisy, geriatric, thief with no appreciation of personal space. And she definitely wasn't sure about the cat's owner, Killian Jones. But just because everyone leaves in the end, does it really mean you can't be happy now? Modern AU.

Strip You Bare by AMiserableLove reviews
God this was a bad idea. Hips rocking into hers, pushing her up against the door, his lips dusted across her neck, the scruff of his beard scraping the sensitive skin there as she bit back a moan, refusing to allow him to see how easily she was unraveling—his touch awakening something inside of her that had apparently laid dormant for years...*M-rated content*

Missing Pieces reviews
Picking up where my short fic "Leaving Neverland" ended (around 3x10), we see how that one night affects both Emma & Killian in Storybrooke. When Pan's Curse is imminent, Killian offers to escape the curse with Emma & Henry, but he isn't prepared for the result. Canon divergence but still will follow show's events. Rated *M*, but most content will be rated *T*.
