Author has written 6 stories for West Wing, Sound of Music, Cats, and Titanic.

What's New!

05/25/2021 - I have semi-migrated over to ao3, where you can find Crossroads, Question, AND a brand new (well... in February) West Wing fic that I never bothered cross posting (though I may yet). I'll probably be more active over there now considering ffn is dying a slow death. Link: https:///users/RhapsodyInProgress

12/14/2020 - Another new story is up??!?!?!? Who even am I?????????????

11/23/2020 - Profile overhaul happened anyway, because no profile needs to be as long as mine previously was.

11/05/2020 - Some kind of weird star alignment happened and I decided to haul off and write a one-shot for the very first fandom I ever published anything for, almost 16 years after I finished the published story for that fandom. I don't have any explanation either, but...uh... read it I guess?

Icon

I chucked some Hamilton lyrics on a gradient like I was 15 and making livejournal icons again and this will probably now be my icon in perpetuity.

Stuff and Things

- Canadian, she/her, not telling you my age, though you could just go into the author notes for "At the Crossroads" and math it if you really need to know that particular detail.

- No I didn't just say that to try to get you to read "At the Crossroads" (but would not be sad if that ploy worked)

- I don't write a great deal of fanfiction these days (as the updates state, my most recent story was posted ten years after I finished my next most recent) but I do write a lot. I expect, based solely on the way my brain seems to latched back onto The West Wing as a self-soothing technique, there might be a couple more fics to come, but I will never be one of those prolific writers. I'm just not wired for that kind of productivity, lol.

- My reviews for other people tend to be long and rambling and when I find an author I like I'll probably read their whole catalogue and review several things in the space of an hour. Please don't be alarmed, I come in peace.

- I never know what thing from which fandom is going to inspire a fic at any given moment and so sometimes you're gonna get a one-shot about an established, well-documented, fandom 'Ship and sometimes you're gonna 100k words about two characters with 15 combined minutes of stage time from Titanic the Musical and it just is what it is.

Crossing the Line by inkstainedfingers97 reviews
He wasn't kissing her. His lips were merely pressed against her skin. A fine distinction. If he moved so much as a single muscle, the distinction would be moot, and he would be kissing her. Of course, as soon as this occurred to him, it became infinitely harder not to do it.
