July 13 - A new oneshot, called Of All The Bars In All The Galaxy. It's a prequel to The Planets Bend Between Us, and it's about how Dean and Bela met. :D
Jun 1: So apparently I never published my Yuletide 2015 to FF? Ooops. Fixed that and posted it now! It's for Edge of Tomorrow, and it's called Put Your Hands Into The Fire. It's a Rita prequel fic because the world needs more Rita. Also added (this one only a month and half late, haha) Five Times Bucky & Natasha Didn't Meet, for the Avengers/MCU.
But what am I working on currently? Honestly a whole host of things - I keep getting myself into working on big fic. XD The ever elusive Timebomb Avengers fic that I've been teasing for a millennium finally has a deadline on it because I signed up for the Marvel Bang with it. So this time when I say it's coming soon, I really do mean soon!
Mar 13: I've got a bunch of things headed down the pipe over the next few months! In the meantime, just posted a new wee oneshot, a SPN drabble called When the Levee Breaks - written both for the 100 Word Challenge over at The Beta Branch as well as a wee birthday fic for the lovely my-spirit-animal-is-the-impala. (Pie, it's super late but I hope you like the teeny tiny bday fic gift ;D)
Feb 4: A new SPN oneshot called Do You Hear What I Hear? - this was written for the Beta Branch Stocking Stuffers over at The Beta Branch, and I finally got it all shined up for publishing. Also new is a oneshot for Supergirl called That's Not Nothing. I honestly had zero intentions of writing for this show, but I have a ache in my chest for Winn, and for Kara/Winn, and there is a hideous lack of fic out there so I simply could not help myself. XD I don't know if this'll become a regular thing, but we'll see how it goes.
I am a female between the age of 25 and 35.
I ramble in messages, I love messaging fellow readers/writers/fans. Feel free to drop me a line with comments, questions, hey's and hi's, whatever you fancy. :D I wax and wane between being madly obsessed and coolly enjoying fandoms. I keep scads of notebooks with half-finished things and ideas and notes in them. I can't even begin to explain to you the depth of my love for Lost.
If I read it, I WILL review it, regardless of how much I liked it or didn't like it. I don't necessarily expect the same from every single person, but I definitely would hope for it! I think it's a simple courtesy. The author took the time to write it and share it, I took the time to read it, so it's only fair I give them my thoughts on it, even if it's just one word. I try to leave helpful and specific reviews, but sometimes I just don't have much to say. Lastly, I desperately appreciate concrit. If I have errors, typos, inconsistencies, grammar problems, characterization or logic problems - please point them out. I appreciate it immensely, even if the fic is years old. :)
Also, I read a pretty randomly wide range of fics. Lately I seem to have a fascination with both reading and writing whump and angst. I have no idea why. And I LOVE a good crossover. The more clever and conceivably canon, the better.
My early fics are embarrassingly bad. Seriously tho, you've been warned.

Stuff I Wrote That I Actually Kinda Like
"Please, understand, sometimes I can't choose what I work on. I can't follow through on a line of thinking just because I want to, or, or because it's needed. I have to work on what's in my head. And right now, this is what's in my head." -Charlie Eppes, Numb3rs
"I love writing but I hate starting. The page is awfully white and it says: 'You may have fooled some of the people some of the time but those days are over, giftless. I'm not your agent and I'm not your mommy, I'm a white piece of paper, you wanna dance with me?' And I really, really don't. I don't want any trouble. I'll go peaceable-like." -Aaron Sorkin
"I have tried simply to write the best I can. Sometimes I have good luck and write better than I can." -Ernest Hemingway
"Writing isn't everything, but it's right up there with oxygen." -Unknown
"Many suffer from the incurable disease of writing, and it becomes chronic in their sick minds." - Juvenal
"If you did not write every day, the poisons would accumulate and you would begin to die, or act crazy, or both - you must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." -Ray Bradbury
"Don't get it right, get it written." -James Thurber
"What no [partner] of a writer can ever understand is that a writer is working when he's staring out of the window." -Robert Andrews
"Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader. Not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon." -E.L. Doctorow
"The writer is both a sadist and a masochist. We create people we love and then we torture them. The more we love them, and the more we torture them along the lines of their greatest vulnerability and fear, the better the story." -Janet Fitch
"The thing that non-writers do not understand is that even if the idea hurts us, we have to get it out, we must write it. The voices in our head will not shut up until we do." -Unknown
Ok, finally! You are at the bottom, you scurvy dogs! Arrrr...!
