Author has written 20 stories for StarTrek: The Next Generation, Defiance, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.
Hi, I'm MissMelysse. I make stuff up.
I make stuff up.
I do it for a living, and I do it because I love it, but either way, I make stuff up.
Sometimes I make stuff up in print. Sometimes I play characters in audio improv or scripted audio dramas, or on stage as an improvisational actor/comedian. For more about all of this, including my recent projects, you should check out my blog, or see what I've been reading at my book blog.
I also write original fiction and essays and do freelance editing work, and I have a podcast, though I haven't added anything to it in a while. Must fix that.
Other: one husband, two computers, three mobile devices, 4.5 dogs (the .5 is a foster), and more books than I care to count
I hate the term "favorite" as it applies to social media and the like. If you're on my favorites list it means you've written enough things that I enjoyed that I want to read - or at least know about - everything you post. Adding you, a fellow author, as a favorite is the most expedient way to do that. I might think everything you write flows from a magical pen made of a willingly-given unicorn horn, or I might only really dig a few of your stories, but I still want to be told what else you're doing.
If I don't follow a specific story, it doesn't mean I don't like the story.
I typically only follow specific stories if there's nothing else that author has written that greatly appeals to me.
I understand that not everyone uses follow/favorite the same way. I just wanted to throw that out there.
About My Stories:
Color My World (Geordi La Forge/OFC) is complete, but I might revisit that relationship.
Crush (Data/OFC) is complete. Crush II: Ostinato (the proper sequel) is in process.
Because I Wanted To (Buffy/Data) is just a one-off.
Note to readers of CRUSH and the other stories in that universe:
I've started a youtube playlist of the music mentioned in the story. You can find it here:
I'm so tickled that anyone likes my stuff enough to respond to it with art! Thank you, both of you.

I'm writing the Data/Zoe story from both ends, and the middle, so I'll try to keep this updated for those who want to read their story "in order."
I try to respond to all comments; if I miss yours, I apologize. If you post as a guest, please know that I'd totally respond if I could. Either way, I appreciate all of you who do take the time to comment.
Words to Live By:
Risk more than others think is safe.
Care more than others think is wise.
Dream more than others think is practical.
Expect more than others think is possible.
