Author has written 27 stories for Blacklist.

I am an Australian living in Oklahoma. I have always been an avid reader and used to write fan stories in my teens back in the 70s, long before the internet came into being - and long before I heard the term 'fan fiction'. Embarrassing stories about Starsky and Hutch, Man from Atlantis, Escape From New York and even the Bay City Rollers! Yeah...aging myself here!

When I find a show or movie I love, I go all out on it. The Blacklist has become "one of those shows" to me. And Ressler became the focus. During the pilot episode I thought "oooh, he's kinda cute!". By episode 4 I really sat up and noticed Ressler - he was so gentle when Liz was found, and let's not forget THAT hug! By General Ludd, I knew he felt something for Liz when she got the call about her fathers death. (If you watch when he's arresting Wolff right before she gets the call about her father dying, he NEVER takes his eyes off Keen.) By Anslo Garrick - well, there was no going back for me. All that pain, his tears at Red's monologue, and Red saving his life! I was hooked! I love that his character is on a journey, from squeaky clean, boy scout Agent Ressler to where he's at now.

My stories have a theme - Ressler suffers a LOT! And it's because I can't help it. He suffers SO beautifully!! I mean, look at him in Anslo Garrick - who couldn't love him in that, seeing him dying, seeing him crying, seeing him...suffering. I just love that, I admit it! And don't get me started on Mako Tanida!! OMG! Look at him... crying over Audrey, then out in the snow, absolutely devastated and broken - and still gorgeous! (It was his performance in Mako Tanida that got me setting 'pen to paper' and starting to write Blacklist fanfics). So yeah, I DO drag him through the mud in my stories, because he looks so darn good like that! :-) (And kudos to Diego - great, great job portraying our suffering agent! :-) )


I'm active on Tumblr, Twitter, Vimeo and Youtube with my Blacklist addiction!

Find me on aussieokie.com :-)


I've had a few people ask me what order to read my stories in, so here is the approximate order they go in:

1. Conversations Season 1 (additions to Season 1 episodes)
2. Losing It All (takes place after Mako Tanida 1x16)
3. For Meera - (takes place end of Season 1)
4. Hard Rain (set after Season 1)
5. Conversations Season 2 (additions to Season 2 episodes)
6. Dark Water (set half way through Season 2, prior to Mombasa Cartel)
7. Snowbound (set half way through Season 2)
8. The Raven (set after 2x20, before the events in Karakurt and Tom Connolly)
9. Sleepless Nights (set after Season 2 - a 'what if?' AU story while Liz is on the run)
10. Conversations Season 3 (additions to Season 3 episodes)
11. A Task Force Memorial Day (put together one afternoon after a 'what would keenler do on Memorial Day' discussion with Keenler-Mcswarek girl on Tumblr!)
12. The Ressler Prompts (various one shots done in response to our small group of Ressler writers who got together and decided on a prompt each week)
13. Conversations Season 4 (additions to Season 4 episodes)
14. Keenler Prompts (if I get any Keenler prompts given to me, I'll post them at random under the Keenler Prompts)
15. Tarnished Badge (for the 2017 Blacklist Hiatus Fanfic Exchange, set after 422)
16. 10 Months (set after 508)

I also have a collection of very short random Keenler One-shots here.

Ressler Prompt 4 - November Memories reviews
Ressler thought he'd done a pretty good job at keeping his birth date a secret. Even gone so far as having it redacted on his personnel file.

Ressler Prompt 3 - Back From the Dead reviews
Ressler can hardly believe his ears when he's told Liz is alive. His emotions run wild. Shock. Disbelief. Bewilderment. Awe. Relief. Where one emotion ends and the other begins is fuzzy, as the biggest question of all takes over. How could she have done this to them? To him? Ressler Prompt #3 - Reunion after Liz's apparent death. Angst or fluff.

A Task Force Memorial Day reviews
So this idea came from a conversation I was having with Keenler-McSwarek-Girl on Tumblr, when she said 'what would Keenler do on their Memorial Day'. So we came up with various scenarios, and ran with it and had fun. And then she said 'we need to get this written' So I wrote it, running even further with it and this one shot is the result!

Sleepless Nights reviews
This is a very different story for me. I hope you will be kind and forgive me if it feels different to my usual writing (some M). As always, it's Ressler – this one even more than usual. Ressler has to hunt his best friend. And he's literally losing sleep over it. Keenler of course!

These are conversations between Ressler and Keen taken from the Season 2 episodes. They will be various one-shots and scene expansions, with things I'd like to imagine happened in the show. They will be Keenler and from Ressler's POV - often with lots of Ressler angst! The final chapter is now up, with more expansion on the finale 2x22, and once again, it's Ressler.

Snowbound reviews
A story set in my Hard Rain & Conversations 2 universe. Ressler finally gets the chance to do something he failed to do for 5 years - catch Raymond Reddington. Or does he? Is it all just an elaborate plan to catch a Blacklister? And in doing so, all of their lives are in danger when things go completely off their pre-arranged plan. Unashamedly Keenler!

Dark Water reviews
Red takes Ressler on a mission, having him pose as 'Donald from the State Dept' again. Ressler is sure Red, as usual, isn't telling him everything. But in the midst of it all, it's his own demons that he has to come face to face with. A Ressler drug addiction and withdrawal story, with lots of pain and suffering for our favourite agent with my version of what 'could' have happened!

These are conversations (mainly) between Ressler and Keen, Just some random "one-shots/episode expansions" and scenes that 'should' have been there from their Season One cases together as trust and eventually friendship began to grow.

Ressler and Keen are on a mission with Reddington and Dembe two hours from Washington DC, up in the mountains.

Losing It All reviews
This is my take on what occurs after Ressler shoots at Bobby Jonica, deliberately missing him in Mako Tanida. This is my first Blacklist fanfic (be kind!) and is from Ressler's POV as I just find it so much easier being inside his head! Update, of sorts - Chapter 12 of my story "Conversations" is a prequel to "Losing it All" - (and Chapter 20 of "Conversations 2" is a sequel).
