Life changes and can get in the way of the things we enjoy… but I finally felt like writing again. I’ll be completing my current in-progress stories (though I’m not committing to any sort of update schedule or anything) and may throw in a one-shot or two in between. I won’t be starting any new, big stories.
In any case, it felt right to get back into the swing of things with Cap. He has been and always will be my favorite Avenger – my favorite Marvel character ever, really. I’ve had the first bit written since maybe chapter 5 or so of Alight, but was intimidated to post it since I love the character so much. Finally finished the last two parts, though, and it seemed silly to sit on it any longer.
Anyway, hope you enjoy.
Summary: “Sometimes life has a way of pulling you to the right path, even if you don’t realize that’s what’s happening at the time…” Steve stumbles across someone who makes sense of the chaos his life has become and gives him new hope. Bella/Captain America. Complete in four parts.
Captain America timeline: Set after Steve awakens from the ice, but before (and then during) the first Avengers movie.
Twilight timeline: New Moon A/U, set a few years later. Bella knows about Victoria, but not the wolves. She never goes to Volterra and Edward never comes back.
Y’all did SUCH an amazing job with your stories that I am being asked about possible continuations for them… Now some of you I know are already posting them and others plan to soon, but if you could drop me a line (either comment on this or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know for sure – I’d love to link to them so readers can find you! Just give me a yay or nay and if you plan to post more, let me know the site/link it can be found at.
Thank you all so much again for your participation – this was definitely one for the books! ❤
…and authors too, y’all. Sorry to say life got in the way of banner making today. I have only about four more to do, but alas, it’s time for this author to hit the hay after a long day of taking care of a sick toddler. As these story banners are a gift of sorts to the entrants, I really don’t want to half-ass them so I will be stopping for the night and resuming tomorrow.
Never fear, though! The contest will go live tomorrow (hopefully by about noon PST) and I will be adding an extra day for voting to compensate the lost time. Voting will now be from July 27th noon-ish PST until August 1st midnight PST. Winners will be announced August 2nd.
Sorry for the small delay but remember – good things come to those who wait!
Thanks for understanding ❤

As ever – thanks for stopping by and feel free to contact me with any questions!
As promised, I wanted to do a quick post letting y’all know my story plans/schedule coming up over the next couple months – especially since I’m about to have a very busy summer. Some of you know that I’m very active in the con circuit, either as an attendee, vendor, or an employee. I work/go to several of them and I’m about to hit my peak for the con season with about 6 of them back to back. That will make updating difficult but not impossible.
So here’s what we can (realistically) expect for updates and the likes…
- Devil May Care and Set My Soul Alight will be updated once more before the May 16th
- The elusive Baby, It’s Kol Outside follow-up one shot (My Bloody Valentine) will likely be written during my upcoming travels though won’t be up until about late June – did I mention one of the cons I’m going to will be with the lovely Cuinawen and we’ll be meeting Nate Buzolic?! It’s making me all sorts of motivated 😉
- I have a Bella/Dean one shot I’m working on for fun that heavily features Charlie Bradbury (Felicia Day’s character). It’s called Playing With Matches and I mention it because I’ve teased the banner on my facebook page. I wanted to let those interested know I haven’t forgotten it… It’s slow coming since I work on it sporadically in between Devil and Alight, but it’s still coming!
- The first chapter for the sequel for Thirsty for Your Love will be up July/August, approximately. I’ve been working on the outline but don’t want to start posting until I can commit to more regular updates. I’m definitely excited to be working with our favorite couple again, though – especially since things are gonna get real Original 😛
- Expect more comic crossover stories… because I can and I will! I have about five story ideas that I will flesh out after the con season. But because I like to tease… I’ll just mention Hellboy and the Winter Soldier 😀
- Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Superhero Fest will resume in June! I’ll prepare the contest after my travels and open the submission period while I’m working a couple cons – this will allow you to get stories in and give me the time to prepare banners and the likes. Rules and submission guidelines will be very similar to last year’s contest, so if you’d like to refresh your memory and prepare ahead, you can visit the 2015 contest HERE. The 2016 contest page won’t be added until after May 24th, though.
*Phew* I think I hit all the main points. Sorry for the information dump, but I wanted to get as much out there as possible to answer any questions. Again – I will never promise updates, etc. on specific dates and this timeline is a rough guide/goal. Please know that I work very hard in ‘real life’ both with my business and my family. They take precedent over fanfiction.
But I will never abandon a story and even if I can’t post immediately, I’m still always writing and always plotting… Thank you guys for reading and for your patience and support. Readers like you make writing fanfiction worth while.
Until the next story update… happy reading, my doves ❤
Sorry folks – comments are all fixed now for Devil May Care chapter 4 so if you feel so inclined, you may now post a review. Did I mention I was super tired last night? 🙂

Also, I was notified I was nominated over at the TwiFic Fandom Awards! I’m up for Favorite DaVinci, with Bad Medicine up for Favorite What If story, and Set My Soul Alight up for Favorite Drop Everything and What If – even more exciting (if that was possible!) my Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Superhero Fest 2015 is up for Favorite Writing Contest!

Keep it going, you fantastic people you!
*Halloween cat wants more votes or it will start cutting people 😛
I am so happy to announce that the wonderful 4Padfoot has magically made something happen that’s been on the back of my mind for a year now. Thanks to her superior wordpress skills, you may now download my stories in various formats for reading on the go! It’s as simple visiting the Grab and Dash page and clicking on your desired format… As you’re downloading, please let us know if you find any formatting errors 🙂
Also, be sure to leave 4Padfoot a comment on that page to thank her for all of her hard work… I’m so thankful for all of her help and would be lost without her ❤
PS… I’m happily reading your Spook Fest entries and loving each one. Don’t forget you have until midnight on the 22nd to get them in!
Chapter two of Devil May Care is live – I hope you enjoy it! Click below to head on over to the new chapter and start reading:
Also, please don’t forget to spread the good word about the Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Spook Fest! I’m really excited to host the Halloween contest again and am looking forward to reading the entries 🙂
And for those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook, I’m pleased to share that I’m in the process of teaching myself how to do video editing (special thanks to 4Padfoot who has given me some tips)! Below is a video I made in tribute to Demon Dean. It’s my first ever video and I’m pleased with how it came out and hope you like it.
Also, beneath that is a video I put together last night when I couldn’t sleep… I’m looking forward to making more for my stories and hope you all like them!
As ever, thanks for popping in and happy reading/viewing to you all!
