I'm a HUGE Tru Calling, Community and Haven fan. All three shows have totally inspired me in different ways and have made me think about a career in writing for television.
On July 19th, 2013, I went to San Diego Comic Con for the second time and attended the first ever San Diego Comic Con Haven panel! I also got various goodies from the Haven booth in the exhibit hall and had the opportunity to meet both Emily Rose and Eric Balfour after the panel. I got hugs and pictures with them and it was one of the best days of my life! Both are so incredibly sweet and genuine and I'd love to work with them in a professional capacity someday.
In October 2013 and October 2014, I attended CommuniCon 2 and CommuniCon 3, a fan convention specifically for Community fans. Got to meet incredible cast, including Yvette Nicole Brown and Gillian Jacobs, crew/writers, including showrunner Dan Harmon, and so many awesome fans. It was a truly amazing experience that I will never forget!
Future Plans: I would like to eventually go on to obtain a Ph.D in Disability Studies. Ultimately, I'd like to be a television writer/producer/showrunner and a disability rights advocate/mentor/counselor, working in the non-profit disability/arts/media sector and teaching people with various disabilities about various forms of writing. I would love to create at least one supernatural strong girl TV series and become a university professor, teaching TV drama writing and disability studies at the university level.
WORKS IN PROGRESS AND UPCOMING FICS
Know Who I Am - A multi-chapter Nathan/Audrey/Duke romantic OT3 story focusing on the growing developments of their romantic relationship as well as Audrey remembering her time as Lexie in the Barn. Lexie had befriended a young woman named Tess whom she left behind in the Barn as it disintegrated. Aware of William's bad intentions, Audrey must find Tess in Haven and help her friend before William does. Or else... ON HIATUS UNTIL I HAVE TIME TO UPDATE!!
But I Die (Without You) - An Audrey/Nathan romance story that takes place post Season 3, but before Season 4 and is completely AU. Audrey realizes she's pregnant before she has to go into the Barn, so Nathan goes in temporarily until Audrey has the baby. Flash forward scenes reveal 27 year old Cady, Nathan and Audrey's daughter who is now a graduate Journalism student at UC Berkeley, returning to Haven to seek out her parents. When the Barn comes back, will they remember her? In searching for information about her parents beyond what Duke, Dwight, Vince and Dave tell her, what else does she find out? ON HIATUS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
The Devil You Know - Basically this story delves into great detail about the aftermath of Tru's pregnancy and her spiral into post-partum depression. I don't know where this will go, but I want to carry out the same kind of dark, deeply psychological premise that has been affecting Tru during the previous two fics. This will give me a chance to explore the relationship between Tru/Jack/Jensen a lot more and also their relationship with Kira. I'd also like to explore the possibility of Tru having a second daughter once Kira is a little older named Clarity. I didn't focus on the Richard/Carrie stuff either in the previous story, so hopefully I can delve into that a little more as well. THIS IS THE LAST INSTALLMENT OF MY TRU/JACK MULTI-CHAPTER TRILOGY SERIES. Unless this one gets too long for me and I have to carry it over into another part or maybe even another series... Hmmm... ;) ON HIATUS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!! UPDATED ON 5/16/10!!
Relief - A multi-chapter Tru/Jack story focusing on the spiritual and romantic elements of their relationship. Jealous of Tru and Jack's burgeoning romantic relationship, an already dead and soulless Jensen shoots Tru. At the hospital, Jack and Jensen have a confrontation, which leads to Jensen keeping Tru's soul trapped in another realm, where he is being abusive to her. When Jack comes to rescue her soul, both Tru and Jack must face The Powers That Be and The Council in order to ensure that Jensen gets what he deserves and Tru's soul can be returned to her body safely. UPDATED ON 11/20/09!! ON HIATUS!
Seduction of the Savory Kind - She can't resist it. It's the most irresistible way to a woman's heart. I've already written this fic, but haven't posted it yet. One-shot. Lucas/Gail
"The Devil You Know," "Relief," "Broken Tonight," "But I Die (Without You)" and "Know Who I Am" are currently on hiatus. In addition, I have several other ideas including but not limited to: some more Tru/Jack one-shots, Haven one-shots and whatever other ideas come to me as I think of them. It completely depends on when I feel inspired to write them down and post them.
Updates will be more infrequent now since I am finishing graduate school and working.
A special thanks to all those people who have been reading my fics for the past several years, months, weeks or days. I couldn't write or do what I do without your support and it means a lot to me. Thank you all so much!
