Author has written 45 stories for Angel, Forever Knight, Lois and Clark, Grey's Anatomy, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.
I work in IT, but writing has always been my secret love. My first fanfic was written for Star Wars, and I wrote it when I was in high school, however it will never see the light of day on this site because it was bad. Really, really bad. The first fanfic I wrote that was a good enough level of bad to share publicly was for Forever Knight. Since then, I've branched out and improved my writing as I've grown up. Or, well, I like to think that my writing has improved over the years :) Feedback helps me make improvements, and I thrive on constructive criticism, so please feel free to let me know whether you enjoyed or disliked my work and why.
Just a warning. I really like hurt/comfort stories. My protagonists get beat up a lot, both physically and psychologically. One of my very favorite things to explore is how a character recovers from catastrophe, which usually requires me to cook up a catastrophe first, unless the show is most generous and beats my character up for me first. That's not to say I don't understand the value of fluff. I aim for balance in what I write. Most of my angsty stuff also contains generous helpings of fluff and humor. As much as I love catastrophe recovery, I also love lots of nurturing, porny goodness, and snuzzles.
Currently writing: All Along The Watchtower
My personal favorites of the completed stories I've written:
Lightning Strikes Twice - My most gigantic writing project ever. This thing turned into a monster, and after over a year of working on it, I finished it. I cannot begin to describe how proud I am of this fic.
Waking a Miracle - my first story longer than a standard novel. I was so proud when I finished this! In addition, I just love writing Lois Lane. She is probably my favorite character to write, ever. She's smart, funny, vulnerable... When I start writing a chapter in her POV, I can rarely curtail my enthusiasm.
Good Samaritan - my first story from an original character POV, and my first serious effort in experimenting with first person POVs. This was supposed to be a short story, but it turned into a novella somewhere along the way. Don't you love it when that happens?
Reconstruction - I wrote this back when I was starting to get really disappointed with how Angel's shades of beige arc was being handled. I really like how it turned out.
Nothing Gold Can Stay - What started out as a piece of fluff turned into some good character exploration for me. I really enjoyed writing this, staying true to my Buffy/Angel roots, but not making it too sappy.
Sadness, In a Minor Key - I think this is my most creative endeavor. And it's really where I started flexing my muscles, writing-wise.
A description of my writing, show-wise, from oldest to newest:
Forever Knight - this was the first fandom I wrote for, and boy did I write. I wrote up a storm. I was a diehard NNPacker to begin with, and slowly grew to enjoy CoTK as well. The early stuff is bad, to be honest. LaCroix was really out of character, a problem I think I fixed toward the end of my FK stint with the stories: Darkest Hour, and Through a Glass, Darkly, and my plots were kinda transparent and/or angsty for the sake of angst. These were all written back when I was still in high school, and I think it shows.
Angel - after Forever Knight, I migrated to another mopey vampire and had some fun in that fandom. I didn't write as much, but I think the quality improved quite a bit, compliments of a college education and an expanding realm of experience. I was a Buffy/Angel shipper from beginning to end. My story, Swan Song, though I didn't know it at the time, was actually my own swan song in the Angel arena. I gotta say, after going through and editing Swan Song, it's a lot more... twisted and angsty than I remember. I'm not sure how I feel about it.
Lois and Clark - I think this was the first of what I call my modern writing style, and my first attempt at writing post-college. I'm still working and developing my style, but the leaps in quality aren't so drastic anymore. Waking a Miracle was a giant (literally) breakthrough for me, in that it proved to me that I have the staying power to write a novel. Good Samaritan proved to me that I can write an original character that isn't a one-dimensional throwaway or a Mary Sue. I hope this eventually means I will be writing my own original novels, but we'll see. For now, writing fanfic continues to be one of my most enjoyable hobbies.
Grey's Anatomy - My newest writing obsession. I'm a MerDer shipper through and through. In the very beginning, because the show tended to view him as an appendage of or foil for Meredith with very little depth, on top of a complete dearth of Derek-centric fics, my focus was born. While I do love Meredith, I feel the show explores her character enough on its own that I don't feel the need to write specifically Meredith-driven stories. Also, despite my love of hurt/comfort stories, doing bad things to Meredith makes me feel like I'm kicking a puppy because Shonda messes with her enough already.
