Author has written 9 stories for Arrow, and Captain America.

One of my favorite general philosophical quotes is from Annie Dillard: Spend the afternoon. You can't take it with you. Spend it doing things you love -- if you do, you're not wasting your time.

I also love female characters who are strong, resourceful, and smart among other things. I guess you can tell by looking above at the shows I like. :)

Stronger by Axelrocks reviews
"I'm hardly the woman I was a year ago,but if Ed walked through those doors right now, breathing, and told me to go with him, I'd like to think I'd tell him to go to hell."

Shattered by ShieldmaidenTabris reviews
She carried that child for nine months, birthed her, raised her, and protected her from her ass of a father… only to have all that work stripped away. All Carol's hope was as shattered as her heart, a broken and bloody piece that was lying on the ground.

Holding Pattern reviews
Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow helped destroy Project Insight with Steve Rogers and the others, but her cover(s) are blown to smithereens just like the three helicarriers back in Washington. She is doing her best to lie low in a small town of all places and taking up a regular job of all things. Unfortunately, lying low is easier said than done.

Bringing Down the Beast reviews
Felicity sure has fun making Isabel's life miserable with her talented hacking and quick thinking. This was originally written as a one-shot, but I will add one-shot chapters as plot bunnies invade my brain! :) Ratings change due to the "Rochev's Ride" one-shot (chapter 6). Oh, and Roy Harper starts assisting Felicity in chapter 6. Enjoy!

Worth the Trouble reviews
Oliver considers branching out in an innovative new business venture with clean technology. To learn about this technology and network, Felicity books an out-of-town conference for them to attend, and Isabel finds out. Will this be Russia 2.0? Action, drama, intrigue, and Olicity are all woven slightly into the adventure, of course!

Arrow Up reviews
As a result of Isabel's trickery, TeamArrow has a cash flow problem. Felicity changes that, but will Oliver like what she did? Thanks to a couple of suggestions from reviewers, I added to it. Roy Harper and Sin join the story in the last two chapters as well. Olicity. Ratings change due to language and content in chapter 6.

Good People reviews
A gala event for QC's newest appointed CEO is set. Oliver is curious about Felicity's gown for the gala and enlists Diggle's help in the matter. This morphed quickly into Olicity - and resulted in an M-rating change for chapter 7. Whew!

Oliver and Felicity escape from yet another close call while working on names from "the list". Due to a hint that it ended too soon, I added a new chapter . . . and a final chapter that has caused an M-rating change. Olicity feels...

To Build a Kiss is a place for me to put one-shots of scenarios I create for "first kiss" moments between Oliver and Felicity. As time goes, there will be quite a variety of scenarios. The first one is "I Believe." I hope you enjoy the Olicity of it all! Rating change due to this latest one-shot. :)

Snuggly and Smart reviews
Diggle is out of town. Oliver has no choice but to take Felicity into the field. Bombs, self-destructing files, and car chases are all part of the adventure. Yeah, Diggle missed out on the action, but thank goodness he was spared from witnessing the Olicity fluff after it was all over.
