Skin: the time in between

I liked BtVS as a super young teen, although I watched it in bits and pieces. I rewatched it in full as an adult and fell bug shaggering crazy in love, especially (of course) with Spike. I found EF in a fit of winter blues and never initially planned to add anything to this lovely community, beyond some very lurksome reading. Goes to show how well that turned out :)

You won't likely find me working directly within canon, as I have the most fun putting "wrenches in the system" and seeing what happens.

I'm a complete romantic, so if you start reading a story of mine that seems tough, keep that in mind. I won't ever break characters just to break them. I much prefer exploring how growth happens, and the many different ways our favorite pair can find each other and change each other and, in the end, change themselves.

I also tend to write in a plethora of genres, from incredibly lighthearted and silly to heavy and dark to just plain weird. Writing is an exploration, and I enjoy treating it as such (and what better place to go exploring than in our beloved Buffyverse?).

Cheers!

P.S. In case you're wondering, yes, all the "off your bird"s and random "Paul"s popping up in my fics are on purpose. OYB for obvious reasons. Paul because... well, I have no good explanation for Paul. He's just there. Good ol' Paul.

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?
