the name's Ruby and I've been writing fic for too many years to count. I got my start with Star Trek Voyager's Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres and haven't looked back since. My chosen pairings are primarily het, but that is because I have yet to be inspired by any slash pairings, writing-wise. However, I will READ certain slash ships if they/the story plot appears promising.
NOTE - if you are interested in my occasional forays into MA territory, please see my AO3 account under the same name (Cheile). Also, original fic will be posted at my FictionPress account here.
*places to find me around FFN*
currently on the writing board
-- various oneshots and the rewriting of the Kathryn's Rainbow series (FYI - Rainbow is an AO3 exclusive due to ratings)
-- "Hand of Wrath" deleted scenes – just like the label says! I have some ideas, BUT I am also open to suggestions from YOU the reader. PM me your ideas and, if the muse likes it, she may just try it on for size :) [please note – no guarantees that your suggestion will be written; it all depends on when and how inspiration strikes. But I will do my best!]
-- A Lovely Light – Before the UEO, before the disgrace...there was only their love. [A prequel to "Hand of Wrath"]
-- The Darkest Hour – NaNoWriMo 2013 novel. Will be AU with a mix of the first and second season crews and Krieg/Hitchcock centric.
a note on my seaQuest fics for the interested Questies, review taggers and the curious but fandom-blind - I favor the first season crew, so that is the crew you'll be seeing most often. more info here: /wiki/List_of_seaQuest_DSV_characters#First_season_main_characters
FYI to readers/review taggers - older fics were mostly written in omniscient POV because that is how I learned to write/how a large number of books are written. so if "head-hopping" is a pet peeve, best to skip them. I don't intend on "updating" them other than to fix formatting issues screwed up in the past by FFN's "upgrades". Reviewing these will not be helpful.
