I'm a graphic designer terrified of pigeons, in love with sugarless tea and people with a sense of humour. I divide my food into separate piles before eating it, which is probably one of the reasons people think I'm weird. Sometimes I read smut on public transport.

I love writing and I know many authors have probably said this but feedback means a lot. A LOT! If you've reviewed any fic of mine you know I always reply. Sometimes I even manage to be funny! Or creepy. I guess that depends on your point of view.

If you want to drop me an e-mail, you can always do that here: the.enemy.of.reality[at]hotmail.com

Summary: The scars on her face have made her a recluse but when the bleached stranger barges into the small town like a black clad hurricane, he throws her quiet life right out of whack. He’s aggravating, unpredictable, and oh so hot.

The destiny she never thought she’d have is set in motion the minute she starts having dreams of being someone else. But how can she figure out what it means when she forgets as soon as she wakes up?

The story is AU but it’s a world that has all the supernatural in it.

Summary:

The holidays were supposed to be a fun-filled time full of presents and overeating, but everything went down the drain when her mother decided to extend charity to a vampire.

The second Spike gave her a challenging smirk and charmed the reason out of her mother, Buffy knew that before the end of Christmas someone would die a painful horrible death. She’d just have to make sure it wasn’t her.

Summary: Forced to be close together for an infinite amount of time, it stands to reason that mortal enemies would drive each other insane. But when it comes to a self-righteous, uptight slayer and an irritating, chipped vampire, there is no reason.  This story, set just after the end of S4, is full of banter and innuendo, so read on if you are interested.
Also, Riley left to roam the jungle a little earlier so he isn't in the picture.

Summary: On the saddest day of her life, Buffy Summers reminisces about the summer of fifty-eight years ago.  At just sixteen, she'd been in love with the dreamiest, most unattainable boy in town.  Her first love.  Her first kiss.  Her dreams coming true under the first rays of summer.

Summary: With a tub of ice-cream in her lap, Buffy wallows in misery over Angel disappearing out of her life in a puff of overly dramatic smoke. Her life gets turned upside down when her hated enemy staggers drunk off his face to her front porch. Not only is he demanding her help, he is invading her personal space. She’s had enough!

Post-S3. Angel and Drusilla are a no show. Meanwhile Buffy and Spike embark on an adventure full of childish bickering, UST and reluctant camaraderie that will change what they thought were unshakable perceptions.

Summary: Spike has a very bad idea that involves whipped cream and chocolate sauce and Buffy is most definitely not cleaning up. (A one-shot sequel to Christmas Rage, but it’s okay if you haven’t read it.)
 
“Because it’s wrong? Messy? Too much fun for you, Slayer?”
 
She slapped her hand over his chest and fisted his T-shirt. “I’m all fun. Fun is my middle name.”
