Author has written 12 stories for Twilight, Chronicles of Narnia, Kim Possible, and Teen Titans.

Student Mathematician and Classicist, inventor, and a published author. That last one just barely. If you're the sort of person who cares about such things, know that I'm female.

The short version because I know that a lot of people don't like long profiles:

Most of my writing isn't here because if a work is here it's either already complete or I intend to finish it. None of these stories have been abandoned and there is no intention to stop any of them. Yes, that means that I'm currently working on seven stories at once, yes that means that updates are erratic and often take a long time. It also means that if you start reading a story marked "incomplete" there will be more.

If you want to read the fragmentary, incomplete, and possibly never to be complete works that I write in general, go to my site "Stealing Commas".

The long version because long is what I generally do:

I don't usually write from beginning to end with no gaps in the middle. Instead I mostly write in fragments. That format does not fit this site at all. The site is built for you to start at the beginning and add each new installment to the end. In theory you could get away with gaps, but going back and filling those gaps would be an epic mess. Trust me; I've looked into it.

That means that the vast majority of my work isn't here. It's at my site, Stealing Commas, which can be found by searching Google for that name (as a phrase; use quotes.)

Instead what is here are a couple of fragments that can stand alone as one shots and works that are unlike my usual style: things that start at the beginning, move forward without gaps or jumps, and will eventually reach their ends.

Nothing is abandoned. Everything marked as incomplete will be added to until it is complete but, if you take a look, that means I'm working on a lot of stories at the same time. The reality is that I'm working on much more than the seven you see here.

As a result updates can be slow in coming and erratic. I apologize for that, but this kind of writing isn't exactly my forte.

A perfect example of the difference between the way I write in general and the way I write here is Edith and Ben. At Stealing Commas the story exists as 36 fragments with over 25 thousand words between them. The first fragment, originally written as a one off, is something I haven't even gotten to here. Here the story starts at the beginning and runs to the first gap which only results in 3,633 words across three installments.

Edith and Ben also happens to be the only one of my usual fragmentary works I've felt comfortable publishing here, because it's the only one where I'm very definitely going to fill in all the gaps. Eventually.

In the eleventh annual Kim Possible Fannie awards Bent, not Broken won Best Drama, and Chi Mira from that story won Best KP style name. In the twelfth Fannies Leela Place Possible from Being More than A Simulacrum won Best Original Character, and her relationship with Joss Possible won Best Friendship.

The past 20 months or so have been quite bad. It's why there's been basically no activity here. That doesn't mean I've abandoned anything. If I ever do abandon a work I'll be sure to make note of it.

Back to School -OR- The Stupidest Time Travel Scheme Ever reviews
After "So the Drama" Shego says that Eric was severely under-utilized and a long term mole would have been much better. Drakken decides that Shego would be perfect, he just has to age her down, send her back in time to before Kim and Shego originally met, and . . . it's a profoundly bad idea all around. But Shego accepts (for her own reasons.)

Metrion and Zinthos reviews
Everyone knows what Azarath is. As for the other two . . . Lisa, Terra in her new identity, asks Raven what they mean. This will eventually be in my "With great power comes .?." story, but since this stands alone, I'm stalled on the story, and this is written, I figured I'd share it now. Oneshot.

With great power comes ? reviews
A story following the intersections of the lives of "Stop calling me [Terra]!" and Raven after the series ends. Other Titans will, of course, appear. (Regarding the title, the answer isn't "great responsibility", not in this story.)

Bent, not Broken reviews
Kim has lost everything and is intent on stopping those who caused it, but even she isn't sure if what she's doing is justice or vengeance. Dark Kim, but not Evil Kim.

Being more than a Simulacrum reviews
Shego creates a clone of Kim; she won't say why, but she also won't lie to the clone. Inspired, with permission, by Blackbird's "All I Really Want" and the question, "What if Shego had been honest from the start?" Eventual Kigo, after a fashion.

Edith and Ben
Twilight with the focus shifted to emotional attraction from the canonical physical attraction and also with all the characters gender flipped. To view the full, fragmentary, work go to Stealing Commas, this is only from the start to the first gap.
