Hi, I'm Josée (pronounced Jo-zay), otherwise known as AlecTowser or SmittyJaws, and I'm a sci-fi nerd, musician, gamer, and part-time maker of sense.

I write because I have all sorts of daydreams and stories in my head that just need to get out, so I put them to paper (or notepad file) and put them on the internet in hopes that other people will enjoy my ideas, too. I won't ever hold a story hostage for reviews, but if you like something in a story or feel I could do something better, I'd love to hear from you. :)

Any other questions, comments, or concerns? Forward them to the Help Desk - me! :D

Everything posted on here is X-posted to my LJ, FF.net, and AO3.
