Hi, there. I go by Virginia May and I first came to the Twilight Saga in 2009 when a neighbor insisted I read the series. My journey into fanfiction started shortly after that when--like many of you--I'd read, re-read, and re-read again, only to discover that I still wanted more. A Google search led me to several fanfiction sites, including Twilighted, and eventually, I started writing my own stories. What I write is mostly canon or canon-based AU. It was my goal (and still is) to keep the characters as true to the way they were originally written as possible, but that does waver from time to time. Pairings in my stories will always be canon though.

More recently, I've made the leap into All-Human stories, which are just ideas or episodes that I've had running around in my head  and needed an outlet for. They are not at all canon, and as such are not necessarily meant for a younger audience. Please take note of ratings.

I have been blessed with the wonderful support of my pre-reader, Farawaymomo, and betas, Katmom, Suebee0619, and Linguist . All three are awesome women who agreed to take me on mid-story and have become good friends. I've also been blessed with so many encouraging words and suggestions from fellow writers, B'ella C'ella Luna, U2Shay, LJ Summers, SydneyAlice, TKegl, Kitsushel and my many wonderful friends over at the Twilight Lexicon.

Thank you all so much! oxoxo


Need You Now has been taken down, but can be found on my fanfiction account. It is complete as is, and have no plans to further develop it at this time. 

What Drives Her is looking to be a little longer than originally outlined. Thanks to my wordy writing style, I anticipate it to be around 30-31 chapters at this time. The story is also on Fanfiction, The Writer's Coffee Shop, and Ramblings and Updates are coming every 2-3 weeks, and while I've been a total fail at replying to every review, I've read them all and appreciate each one from the bottom of my heart. They're like fuel for the fingertips.
