I am a Diesel Mechanic by day, and I play Roller Derby and paint in my spare time.

I started reading fanfiction in high school -- mainly Torchwood and Dr Who -- and I returned to it after covid prevented me from training and playing Roller Derby. Without a social outlet, I was a mess and incredibly lost. Finding EF was a blessing in disguise, allowing me to stalk these halls of magnificent content while getting lost in the AU/Canon I never knew I needed in my life. 

I was never much into writing -- outside of song lyrics and terrible poems -- and because I rarely have to write anything day-to-day, I believed that I could never write anything captivating or decent, add my terrible grammar and punctuation into the mix, and I wasn't even going to try.

I worked my way through every finished vampire Buffy ff I could find -- here and elsewhere -- and found myself wanting more. Then, the Mystery Fic-a-Thon was announced, and a thought crossed my mind 'just give it a go, see what happens.'  The challenge stoked the coals burning in the depths of my vivid imagination and turned into a roaring inferno. 

Nowadays -- still unable to play roller derby -- I find myself getting home from work and jumping on the computer to either read the wonderful fics here or spend hours writing extremely dark vampire Buffy fanfiction. It's a phase, I hope. 

My stories will likely be HEA -- I don't have the heart to keep them apart-- with a few heart clincher or smutty romantic one-shots along the way (that will be more than likely fueled by a song I'm listening to). 

I have a couple in the pipeline and hope to start posting regularly. 

Please note: I have an aversion to vamp Buffy having a soul when she rises. There are many theories out there, but my headcanon is too strong to argue with, hahaha. 

Spike will not - unless absolutely necessary to the plot - have a soul, either. I understand why he got one, but he gets free, uninhibited reign in my fics. I like him when he's bad  - There are personal reasons I won't go into here as to why, but I will say the message/symbology I take from it hits a little too close to home.  

Thank you to everyone who comes here to read my stories and leave feedback.
