My fever was not, it turned out, the fizz of genius.

Pikachu, i.e. solysal, i.e. Chris(tine). Thanks for dropping by my profile! I'm trying to improve the quantity and quality of my writing, and explore some nifty ideas. I can't promise excellence, but I can promise...um, stories? There was a joke here, but it got away from me.

If, for whatever reason, what you see here makes you want to learn more about me, you can check out my tumblr: . Mostly I just reblog pretty pictures.

Also, there are some incredibly talented authors on this site (no, this isn't some subtle allusion to myself). Check out my favorites if you want to see some of the fics that I think have some pretty brilliant people behind them and let those geniuses know what you think.
