About this author

I love hearing from people, so please, if you want me to respond or comment, send me a message. I'll happily answer any questions or comments, rants or even if you throw a tomato at my head. Be warned, I'm a chatterbox (and that I make a mean tomato basil soup) =D.


I wish I could think of something clever and funny atm, but my mind is filled with cotton–or snot that’s dried like cotton around my brain. So, today’s update brought to you by TheGross Unfunny Dani.


I could have updated on the first, except I broke my foot. And after hospital visits and xrays, I thought I’d give it a few days and then write the post. What happened? The EVIL COLD OF DEATH AND DE...

“Do you know what I did to the last guy that called me Tinkerbelle?"

"Slept with him?"

Darryl was silent for a second. "After that.”
Dani Alexander, Shattered Glass

“Tell me something good about your life," I whispered, needing to hear that he wasn't as broken as I thought him to be.
Peter breathed into the handset for about two minutes. I began wondering if he was about to hang up, or had fallen asleep, when he answered. "You."
It was so quiet I almost didn't hear it. And then he hung up before I could ask him to repeat himself.
I fell asleep, grinning, with the phone still clutched in my hand and my milk souring on the coffee table.”
Dani Alexander, Shattered Glass

“Peter to Austin:
"Hard-ons don't make you think less. They make you think stupid. Which makes me think you must have one 24/7.”
Dani Alexander, Shattered Glass

“The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.”
W.H. Auden, Selected Poems

“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.”
William Shakespeare, Hamlet

“A real book is not one that we read, but one that reads us. ”
W.H. Auden

“Love each other or perish”
W.H. Auden

Funeral Blues

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message 'He is Dead'.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.”
W.H. Auden, Another Time

Becky Hi Dani! Thanks so much for accepting the friend request! I just finished reading "Shattered Glass" and it was absolutely great! I loved the different relationships between all the characters and any book that makes me laugh out loud is a keeper. Can't wait for Cai's book. He's such a sweetheart. Thanks for creating these awesome guys :)

She's right, Dani! Be more careful not to threaten anyone with a Kathy Bates profile pic. I could go #1 fan on your ass.

Wait, wait. I'm supposed to be reigning in the crazy here, not making it worse...

This all started because few months back, Dani was pimping Sterek hardcore. I look up TW and I thought, 'Oh, I have to see these two boys make out. How cool of MTV to finally get that progressive.'

Needless to say, 24 episodes later, there's no 'gay for you' transformation and I've just sat through almost two seasons of the most terrible show on TV.

Then Dani mentions he was talking about fanfic. So yeah, I think he owes me a good one. I'll check the freeloaders page too though, thanks.


message 108: by Taylor

Taylor So I'm giving in, and I'd like to try some good Sterek fan fic. I know you must have a rec for me!

Pretty please :)

message 104: by Taylor

Taylor I just came across your bio, and I have to say I'm really disappointed we're all missing out on some Dave Gahan action! You didn't really burn it, did you? Nah, you didn't.


Little Butterfly εïз Dani, I've read that NSI is coming out Fall 2012. It's fall here in Germany now, so where is it?! lol
I wanna get my little hands on this so bad. and on Cai ;P

And the black eye was from Darryl, who did not appreciate being called "an old prissy queen".

Oh Dani. I don't know where to begin about the ordeal I went through last night! While I was typing a reply to your message and booking air tickets to Sweden (I multi-task, you know), Kate sneaked up on me like Batman or Spiderman, or the Green Lantern (or some other spandex-clad superhero) and she knocked me unconscious with a hypodermic needle.

My ears are still ringing from her evil laugh.

I woke up hours later and I realized I was gagged and tied to a tree in her back yard in Washington. She was standing across from me brandishing a huge kitchen knife (even bigger than those of Chef Ramsey!) and she said she would keep me there gagged and tied up until she made sure Sterek lost to Destiel and then she would cut me into tiny tiny pieces and feed me to her evil cats!

She was terrifying, I tell you! *whimpers*

I managed to free myself using some tricks I'd seen in MacGyver as a child—involving tree leaves and spit—while she was inside fixing dinner. It was a very narrow escape because the moment I stepped away from the tree I felt that kitchen knife of hers swoosh by my ear.

I made it back in one piece and I've been voting for Sterek like a woman possessed since then, managing to put them back in the lead! *pumps fist*

So, yeah. That's why I didn't reply to your message sooner.

Aha! That's pretty cool. Meh, I should probably learn more about stuff like that, but most of my dad's family were more of the drunk-and-stoned variety than the spiritual ones. (which is probably why I had so much fun as a teenager =D)


message 95: by Dani

Dani Alexander Kate wrote: "Hah! Rage!Dani has never commented on my cultural appropriation of dreaming Coyote. One just has to be sly and sneaky about these things...kind of like Coyote now that I think about it. :) "

Cultural appropriation doesn't bother me when I know the writer/person respects the culture. It usually just makes me roll my eyes.

The whole boxing us into being these spiritual people with connections to our ancestors and lots of "spirit guide" references just drives me up the WALL.

Meh. I always think people mean well, even when they portray us wrong. Doesn't help me refrain from the rage, but it doesn't make me hate the writer.

Explain this whole Coyote thing though. I think I missed it lol.

I think I've read one m/m book with Native American characters--but I am writing one so. I get REALLY pissed off a the stereotypes and end up throwing stuff.

I like the one Willa Okati wrote though for some anthology. The story was okay, but I liked that the characters weren't cardboard AmIndians.

I read all these blurbs and back cover copy with the "wolf/bear/*insert woodland Disney creature*" spirit blah blah shifter. Rage!Dani makes his appearance.

I will! Before I'm dead, anyway.

Oh, and I hate Scott.

I think I am the only person on GR that hasn't seen Teen Wolf. WHO IS STEREK? I'm correcting this situation immediately. Netflix, here I come.
