I'm a crazy ICU nurse living in the middle of nowhere (New Mexico!). I have a son and husband who are the best and mostly leave me alone when I'm writing/reading.

Not only do I have a 4-year nursing degree, but also one in geology, most of one in French, and most of a graduate degree in Planetary Science. I'm tired of school.

Now I help fix broken people, write way too much fanfiction, and obsess over Buffy, Supernatural, and Doctor Who. 

I like to read and write mostly fun, sexy (i.e. smutty), and occasionally thoughtful stories. I see enough real-life horribleness. Feel free to pm me to chat or for help on a project. Just be aware I have a wicked sense of humor ;-)

There are a few stories archived at AO3 that either aren't Spuffy or aren't Spuffy enough for this site. 

My username is based on a Hemmingway novel- I have a lost generation addiction . . .

I'm being weird over on tumblr: https://sunalsolove.tumblr.com/

"It is also worth asking: what does it mean that we are better able to see pain than love? That rage and conflict in art are perceived as deeply felt while reconciliation and joy are dismissed as mere sentiment? Does it reveal more about how broken we are than about the art itself?"

Summary: More than a year post NFA, Buffy is in self-imposed exile. Her only solace is a robot that looks like the vampire who sacrificed himself in a cave under Sunnydale. Spike is unable to stay away, only he's fighting his own inner battles he doesn't want to burden her with. Impersonating a robot for a few days should be easy, right?

Summary: You are walking through the cars on a train.  Each car seems to belong to a different train, with strange new landscapes outside the window.  You walk through the next door, and into another … no, wait, you’re in a submarine. But there’s a train door at the far end, so you walk through the echoing chamber, and you go through the door, and — why are you in the basket of a zeppelin?  How’d that work, and what country is that down there?  And how long do you think that dangling rope ladder is?

Summary: AH/AU. On the hit show Belle South the off screen drama is often hotter than the on screen action. The toughest role Spike has had to play isn't the one that won him an Emmy, it's the one where he has to pretend everyday that he isn't in love with leading lady Buffy Summers. Buffy, America's Sweetheart, has no idea that under her co-star's bad boy exterior his heart beats only for her. When a storm throws everything into chaos and Buffy discovers her life isn't what she thought it was, will she be able to see through the lies and find the love that's been there waiting for her?
