I can't say much about myself, because I consider myself extraordinary only in how dull I am.

I like writing stories with unsettled endings and relationships that take forever to build.

I like canon- it's always a fun jumping-off point, but if I didn't like what happened in the original, I feel no obligation to keep it in my story.

I like calico cats and Irish Wolfhounds, but I only have the cats 'cause the dog would be very unhappy in my apartment.

I'm sort of a grown up, but mostly I'm just faking.

I love Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Sherlock, Merlin, The Wheel of Time, and A Song of Ice and Fire, but I've only ever written stories for Doctor Who and Sherlock, and that will probably remain the case.

I'm a vegetarian, but my husband isn't.

I'm very picky about stories and don't believe in leaving one hanging- I will never START posting a story until I have FINISHED writing it.

And here I'll give a shout-out to my wonderful husband who is also my editor. Fool that he is, he not only said 'yes' when I asked him to marry me, but said 'yes' again when I handed him a flash drive and said, 'hey, read that and tell me what you think.' If ever he gets a wild hair to write and publish something, I will forever be his number 1 fan.

I also have a presence on FF dot Net. My name there is TheWheelWeaves (and 10 cool points if you recognize where my usernames come from!)

This Rose is Extra by FarDareisMai [Reviews - 1]
"Our highest assurance of the goodness of Providence seems to me to rest in the flowers. All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are all really necessary for our existence in the first instance. But this rose is an extra. Its smell and its colour are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it. It is only goodness which gives extras, and so I say again that we have much to hope from the flowers." ~Sherlock Holmes, on the subject of flowers
