Author has written 10 stories for Harry Potter, Angel, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

May, 2015

Fan fiction business first:

Note: I have a profile on Archive Of Our Own, so if you're a member, you should go follow me there, too. I do plan on posting all of my stories on both sites, but if push ever came to shove, I'm sticking with AO3. I love their mission statement and user-friendliness. Also, it'll be easier for you followers of the Interaction series to keep track of story order and whatnot over there (and also of the Blood and Time series that I'm co-authoring in the Angel/DW fandom). Same pen name, but no spaces (so ConstantCommentTea). And if you're not a member, check it out. I've been won over.

Just Posted

A Short Trip Outside the Universe (Angel/Doctor Who): Angel agrees to help the Doctor move "heavy things." The Doctor may have failed to mention that the universe that the "things" are on is about to explode, that the TARDIS isn't doing so hot to begin with, and that he definitely knows what Angel did last summer. This story is under a joint account, so you have to go here to get to it: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/5290355/Constant-Babble.

Also check out Men of Action, Room in the Middleand Get Your Own Monastery over there.

Works in Progress

(Untitled Sequel to And Then an Owl Flew into the Kitchen) (Harry Potter):"This is the story of how Lyra Lily Potter became the first Potter in 200 years to be sorted into Slytherin House, and how she then saved Hogwarts." Still mostly in the planning stages, but I've written the first chapter or two. I also know the last line, and it's super-awesome.

(Untitled next installment of the Interaction series) (Angel): Yes, there are more. Lots more. The next one is an active WIP; Calder-centric.

Blood and Time series (Angel/Doctor Who): Angel and the Doctor. Take a moment to consider this combination... Babblefest and I did, and what we realized was: Frenemies... Best friends... Epic bromance. (Best read here for organizational reasons: http://archiveofourown.org/series/89854, but the link to the Constant Babble profile above is fine, too.) Up next: Angel and the Doctor have a bit of a Master mix-up...

About me (for those of you who really did come here to find out this stuff)

In the past:
I was unschooled (self-directed learning) from third grade to college, during which time I honed my skills as a writer, caught the travel bug, read everything I could about everything I was interested in, started my first job at 11 years old, watched kittens grow up from birth, and figured out at an earlier age than most what it means to be happy in the midst of tragedy. I tagged along on my dad's business trips, so before I was 13, I went whale-watching in San Diego, hiked in the Swiss Alps, tasted real German beer in Munich, explored a salt mine in Austria, and saw Stonehenge and the Magna Carta with my own eyes. I was 17 the first time I crossed the equator, to visit family in Sydney. The day after I graduated high school, my younger brother, best friend, and I went on a self-guided bike tour of Ireland, where we got lost once and watched the World Cup in a pub. Yes, I do love my life.

Currently:
I am a graduate student of Oriental Medicine, which is the study of acupuncture, certain types of bodywork, moxa, and herbs, among other Eastern healing modalities. I also practice reiki and am venturing into working with animals: horses, dogs, and cats, specifically. I'm a trainer in natural horsemanship and I work with previously-wild mustangs whenever I get the chance. I also work with a small craft brewery doing...just about everything. Admin work, brewery tasks, website-building, serving our ale at festivals, inventory, labeling bottles... Yes, my job is pretty awesome, too.

Otherwise:
I am a woman, straight but not narrow, and Taoist-ish (Taoism most closely resembles my beliefs, but other influences in my spiritual life include Quakerism and New Thought). I also enjoy horseback riding, reading, spending time with my cat and dog, and drinking tea. My sense of humor is generally ironic, often random, and sometimes sarcastic.

Thank you for taking an interest in me and my works!
