Author & Artist

Hi, I'm Rea. Enthusiastic reader. I sometimes draw, and very recently also write.

I'm a bit late to the party, having only watched BtVS and AtS in 2023, but the Buffyverse and its characters immediately gained a special place in my heart.

I love reading and watching stories which defy the black-and-white worldview, explore questions with no definite answers, make me think, and contain lots of bravery, love, and heroic struggle – and if the original doesn't deliver a happy ending, well, there's always fanfics, right? ♥

I'm a big fan of redemption arcs. I firmly believe that everyone – even the most horrible, vile characters – can do better if they truly set their mind to it.

I have a special soft spot for fics where Buffy gets to meet William.

Summary: Riley Finn knows that when a man really wants something, he makes it happen — and what he really wants is his happily ever after with Buffy, so he takes matters into his own hands.
Buffy Summers knows that when a door closes… well, you generally kick it open, or something. Even if the kicking is somewhat hindered at the moment, and your only ally happens to be a certain bleached menace of a vampire.
