Hi, I'm MissMelysse. I make stuff up.
I make stuff up, and collect hats and rescue dogs. I'm also a writer, a book reviewer, a podcaster, an improvisor, a voracious reader, a serial baker, and I volunteer as a foster person for a dog rescue. My main website is at www DOT missmeliss DOT com, and the original versions of TNG stories that are getting major revisions can be found at www DOT moonchiilde DOT com (some people like to compare).
About the CRUSHverse
The CRUSHverse began with a one-shot (Fondest Imaginings) that wasn't terribly well-planned, but sparked requests for expansions and backstory. Since then, there've been two novel-length pieces (and a third is in progress), three novellas (two complete, one on hiatus until the main story catches up), and a bunch of one- and two-part side stories.
If you want to read Data/Zoe's story in chronological order, here's the current structure:
Titles that are bold and underlined are novel/novel length. Titles that are in italics but NOT bold or underlined are one-shots, usually offering alternate POVs. Those one-shots that are marked with a - are meant to be read as part of the main story.

I try to respond to all comments. If someone with a "guest" login leaves a note, I will sometimes respond in the review thread for that story, but not always.
