Smutmistress (& Author)

I am a single mother of 3 adult children (as of Dec 2022 18, 23, 28). I recently retired from arts administration for health reasons and am now working as a freelance transcript editor, fiction editor, and artist. I made a Patreon page, if you would like to support my writing and art concretely. I especially like to write smutty farce and fluff, but with a bit of an edge. Sometimes fluffy like asbestos.

I started designing some Spuffy/Buffy/other geeky merchandise. Please visit my stores weekly for new designs:

TeePublic 

RedBubble 

You can also find links to my Etsy shop and other stuff on my Linktree and my fiction editing page is here. If you have a special project you feel would be up my alley, don't hesitate to contact me!

CURRENT HEALTH STATUS: I finally had my first bout with COVID in Oct 22 and am still in many ways recovering. I have seen some improvements since leaving my health-destroying job but still working on neuropathy, fibromyalgia, and other fun stuff. I have more time to write now!

CURRENT FIC STATUS (12/29/22):

NONE OF MY FICS HAVE BEEN ABANDONED. I go where my brain takes me because I can't afford not to take the muse up on what she offers. I am addressing older WIPs in order of how fast I think I can finish them, based on plotted length and current progress, in rotation with the more recent WIPs that my brain is freshly enthused with.

These fics have tabs open and are in active rotation:

*What Happens In Quarantine.... High priority WIP. Not that I wish my pandemic life involved no work and sexy Spike or anything.

*Call Me Maybe: This is the other WIP currently in my rotation. Currently 2 chapters in and it'll be a sloooooow burn.

*Dribbles: My smutty drabbles fic. Stopped doing these when work was trying to kill me this summer, but I'll be returning to them soon!

*Random smutty oneshots: I may write these as the whim takes me.

These fics may get pulled into active rotation at any time as the muse takes me:

No Place Like Home: Just started this one (because I cannot resist Challenge Month) and hope to get back on it soon. It won't be as long as some others.

Brunettes Have More Fun: Another challenge month start. This one's a multi-season slow burn so probably low on the list for completion behind some others.

Chupacabreunion: Trying to get back to this as it won't be super long. I took down the link to Nicholas Brendon reading a couple scenes because I found out what a horrible human he is and refuses to change. You can read firsthand accounts and documentation about that here: Nicholas Brendon Awareness Facebook Group

Route 666: Next chapter about a third done. Hoping to get back to it soon!

The Naked City: Needs some plotting work but hoping to return to soon

Defying Gravity: Expect this one to come slowly as it is complicated for many reasons.

Whiskey & Brie: It's going to be a long one, and isn't going to have romantic Spuffy for a while since, uh, she's a rat, but I expect the payoff to be worth it!

Hand in Hand: Continuation of my chapter for the 2021 Exquisite Corpse "Exquisite Constellations" - Maybe 2 chapters more to add on. Not sure when I'll be doing this, but plans are to do it soon since it's short.

Backburnered pending completion of some other fics:

I Dream of Spikey: 4 chapters posted, not currently active but I have a good chunk of the smut written ahead, hope to get back to soon.

In for a Penny: Moony is on hiatus from Buffy fandom. (Check out her Good Omens fic on AO3!) But it's not dead, we are still friends, and one or both of us will write more as soon as we are able.

Something Randy, Something Joan: Something backburnered, but I am writing on this when the mood takes me. 

Restfield Irregulars: Has some future writing done but is coming slowly. Backburnered until I clear my plate somewhat.

Power of Two: I posted what I have, not currently active but not abandoned.

A Babe in the Woods/Spike's Joy: I posted what I have, not currently active. I have to be in a mood to look at ugliness when I write this, since much of it is thinly-disguised personal history.

SOME FUTURE STUFF YOU MAY SEE SOMEDAY:

Spikey Horror Picture Show

True Blue Part Deux: Smutty sequel to True Blue. Partially written.

Two Cents: Smutty AU of In for a Penny. Will be posted along with the corresponding IfaP chapters.

The Sock and the Puppet & the continuing adventures of the Sock with a Soul

Something Old, Something Ew - Willow's Will Be Done spell has Spike and Giles infatuated. Buffy doesn't like it.

Clement Weather - Clem fixes Season 6.

A Demon Thing - Buffy gets some kink education from Tara in s6

Something about a fax machine...... Angel s5 rewrite

INCREDIBLY honored to have won Best New Author at Round 32 of the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfic Awards! Prisoners of Love also won Best Comedy and Best Fluff and was runner-up for Best NC-17, so I am blushing all over the place now. Look, they gave me a pretty banner!

When the unwinnable battle against the demon army is finally won, Spike has the opportunity to win back Buffy’s trust—and perhaps even her love—on an evil-fighting, life-sharing road trip across America.

Or she would be, if Spike weren't back in town, drunk and depressed and determined to kill or be killed. Is it too much to ask that she not have to deal with an aggravating, morose vampire on top of monsters, an evil Mayor, and worst of all a college-minded mom?
Also, why does he keep touching her hair?

Summary: Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy.
But here’s my number, so call me, maybe?
 
Buffy’s got a lot on her mind, what with Parent-Teacher Night, French verbs, and a crush on a vampire who won’t even commit to a night of dancing--but all that goes away when she meets someone new at the Bronze. One dance and she’s giving him her number, but will he simple things up for her, or just make everything worse?
 
Spike came to the club to scope out the slayer, but ended up leaving with her phone number in his pocket. The perfect tool to entrap her for the kill--if he weren’t haunted by her smile and the realization that he’s doomed. Now there’s just one question in his mind--will he pick up the phone and dial?
 
(Spoiler: He will. Or there wouldn’t be much of a story.)
 
Opening premise based on the song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, though it will not actually appear in the fic because it hadn’t even been written yet in 1997. Starting off fluffy, will get smutty eventually.

Not when he and Ripper could team up to unleash a little chaos on the government’s boys instead…
