Author has written 56 stories for Gilmore Girls, Once Upon a Time, and Timeless.

Once upon a time, Luke and Lorelai's chemistry hooked me. So, on a whim, my scientist brain let them inspire a little creativity and I posted here. Then it was Hook and Emma that became the pair with the sparks, and they brought me back here, to my old account that, coincidentally, had a rather fitting name. And now Lucy and Wyatt have decided to be all adorable and banter-y and full of chemistry and longing looks and UST, so they've taken over my imagination as of late.

I would LOVE for people to send Lucy/Wyatt prompts - I like my ideas when I get them, but I don't always get good ones often enough, so I'd love to hear other people's thoughts! #RenewTimeless
