Author has written 7 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Wicked, and Glee.

Hi all!

Okay, 23-year-old girl born and bred in D.C., but I go to this really small liberal arts school in Southern Maryland now where they're training me to be a hippie. Don't think it's working. I have a slight Coke addiction which I have no plans to fix anytime soon (the soda, not the drug, all you dirty minded people). Screw 12 step plans.

Favorite Quotes (some of them, anyway):

“I am not responsible for your imagination.”
Blues for Mister Charlie

“Testosterone is the great equalizer. It turns all men into morons.”

—Giles, Buffy: the Vampire Slayer

“Don’t go lodging for what the world needs; find out what makes you come alive and do that. Because what the world needs is people who are alive.”
—John Elderedge

“Passion. It lies in all of us, sleeping, waiting, and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us, guides us. Passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we’d know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow: empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we’d be truly dead.”
—Angel, Buffy: the Vampire Slayer

“I reject your reality and substitute my own!”
Myth Busters

"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, / Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."
— William Congreve's "The Mourning Bride" (Thanks, JCB!)

"I tried sniffing Coke once, but the ice cubes got stuck in my nose!"
—unknown

With enough butter, anything is good by Initial A reviews
Emma never expected, at thirty years old, to be taught how to peel potatoes by her mother - but she also never expected to slay dragons, portal-jump through different realms, or fall in love with Captain Hook either. {CS/OQ background pairings} {The Thanksgiving episode we need}

Deliver Me by wistfulwatcher reviews
Bike messenger AU, in which Regina is a CEO that enjoys messing with Emma, and Emma does not back down. For the sake of her job, of course, and not because of the way Regina eyes light up when she's angry. Shameless fluff for 90% of this fic, though warnings for discussions of abuse, racism (and sexism), and negative foster care experiences. Specific warnings precede each chapter.

The Great Indoors by holygoof101 reviews

Reality by elphabathedelirious32 reviews
Oneshot, postmusical. Dying, even if it's not really dying, can't be easy. She had erased the idea of herself from existence and she needed to rewrite it. Fiyeraba.

Debut of a Hero: Hypothetical Movie Trailer by Jeune Ecrivain reviews
