I'm archiving stories here from other sites, and trying to convince my muse to get back on my Buffyverse fics in the meantime 🤪

I write about shows where the characters get inside my brain and refuse to be silenced any other way! Fanfiction got me back into writing after a bout of depression, then I discovered how much fun it was and can't seem to stop. Whoops. shocked I had no intention of writing for BtVS, I just meant to watch it one time before it got taken off of Netflix, on the grounds that it was one of those cultural phenomena one should experience at least once. Then Spuffy happened.

I'm enough to know better (way too old to be a fangirl!) but young enough not to care. I have a chronic illness and way too much time on my hands. When I love any kind of fiction, I tend to get really invested, and the combination = FANGIRL!

I am a sucker for interesting, quirky characters, understated and/or hopeless ships (I appear to be a masochist when it comes to shipping...blush), humour in the midst of dark situations. I read, watch and write for the characters, not the plot.

I don't like to bash characters or read them. I might criticise a character, but not just to beat them down for fun. If I dislike a character that much, I probably just won't write them, so if you're after bash-fics, I'm not your gal.

I'm a feedback junky; reviews are love! I do also appreciate when people leave likes, so if you have nothing to say but you enjoyed it, your 'like' will definitely brighten my day :)

If you spot an error in something I post, I want to know, and while I can't promise I might not have a minor sulk to myself, I will not throw a hissy fit or tell you you're mean, and whether I say it or not, I WILL DEFINITELY BE GRATEFUL! I don't like bad reviews (who does?), but I dislike my own stupid errors even more..

ObDisc: Sadly, any characters or plots you recognise do not belong to me. I will, however, look after the characters, and make sure I put them back (almost) as good as new when I'm done ;)
