Sunny mornings, freshly brewed coffee, travelling, falling asleep to the sound of rain, train journeys, Audrey Hepburn, films by Alfred Hitchcock, autumn and winter, reading anything that falls into my lap but especially Classics, writing (obviously).
I also have a thing for anti heroes. I can't get enough of them. Notable mention goes to: Brian de Bois Guilbert (Ivanhoe), Guy of Gisborne (BBC Robin Hood), Erik (Phantom of the Opera), Maeglin (Silmarillion), Claude Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame), Mordred (Arthurian legend), Captain Hook (Peter Pan), Eric Northman (True Blood) and Jareth (Labyrinth), Loki (Thor)
Favourite fandom pairings (because Canon apparently hates me and doesn't want me to be happy):
Jareth/Sarah (Labyrinth), Erik/Christine (Phantom of the Opera), Ginny/Tom (Harry Potter), Hook/Wendy (Peter Pan), Buffy/Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Guy/Marian (BBC Robin Hood), Angel/Darla (Angel), Merlin/Morgana (Merlin), Elena/Elijah (The Vampire Diaries), Klaus/Caroline (The Vampire Diaries), Emma/Jefferson (Once Upon A Time), Killian 'Hook' Jones/Aurora (Once Upon A Time), Loki/Jane (Thor)
I don't write fluff. Never have. Never will. If I write romance, it's going to be the dark, passionate, messy, emotionally complex oh-my-God-why-am-I-doing-this kind of love. You have been warned.
I feed upon reviews. Don't let me starve.
