Author has written 2 stories for Romance.

Hello there, you can call me V (not in the context of Vendettas, it's actually my inital/nickname).

I'm not too great at writing bios or any kind of "about me", so I'd rather just take this space to tell you a little bit about my stories and invite you to ask any questions you may have regarding their author via PM

I have aTumblr blog you can visit if you have any questions about anything related to my stories, want to see some art/sketches I've made of characters and locations, or just want to say hi!

The Scientist and the Stargazer is based around a plot bunny that came to me maybe six years ago? Long before I was fit to write it, anyway. As of writing this profile this is my favourite story I've written to date, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed figuring it out. Based on reviews it has caused quite a bit of frustration among readers, but I just take that to mean that I've held true to my characterisation ;)

Cartwright Hall is an extrapolation of an earlier story I've written but which has never been made public. I loved my characters so much that I wanted them to grow up along with me, and so I pulled them out of their original high school story and rewrote it based in a university setting (something doesn't feel right to be to be writing naughty things about teenagers while I myself am in my early twenties). Overall this story is pretty much PWP with me throwing in whatever story arcs I feel like; if it were to be anything other than what it is I suppose it would most suit a long-running television show format rather than a novel. Regardless, it's a (mostly) light hearted, fun story with lots of fluff and cute things and I'm not sure if it really will ever end, but who knows.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile and/or stories, I hope you enjoy them and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions I can help clear up

Bermuda Grass by Happy Hippie reviews
Slash. There's always that one person you keep coming back to no matter what, that person who isn't polished or good looking but always there, that person who isn't everything you want but who you know if all else fails you could probably be pretty close to happy with, so it's for that reason that I pick up my phone again, scroll to his number, and type the words "I need you."

I 90 West by goudacheese reviews
Ivan has no love for adventure, nor does he have any sort of desire to see and/or experience the world around him. In point of fact, overly long trips of any sort kind of make him want to die, so there is obviously no reason for him to force his best friend on a journey across America with him. Obviously. M/M slash etc
