For readers who are not familiar with them, a quick intro on the "Joys of Motherhood" characters:

Lindsay, Cindy, Jill, Claire, Denise, Jacobi, Martha - fairly obvious, isn't it? :)

Ashley - L/C eldest daughter; Lindsay's biological daughter, so has all the typical Boxer traits, including brown hair, left handed… Is 16 years old, unless stated otherwise in specific fics.

Lily - L/C youngest daughter; Cindy's biological daughter, redhead, talks as much as her mother, and can't lie to save her life (LOL)… is 14 years old, unless stated otherwise in specific fics.

Kayla Hamilton - Lindsay's partner, since Jacobi is Homicide Lieutenant in the series.

Officer Montoya - female police officer, who has had several small appearances in various fics.

Tyler - Jill and Denise's son, introduced in "Babysitting Aunt Jill"… Cute little baby, except in "The Prodigal Daughter Returns" and it's sequel "Family Reunion" (two future fics) where he is a teenager.

Samantha "Sam" Parker - Introduced in "Chaos and Squirrels Abound", and Ashley's girlfriend as of "Girlfriend", "Not-yet-but-soon-to-be Girlfriend" ,"Football and Bruises"…

Kate - Ashley's best friend, is on the basketball team with her ("Not-yet-but-soon-to-be Girlfriend"). Has several appearances in other fics…

Santiago - Ashley's best friend, first introduced in "Coming Out". Is Hispanic and is on the track team.

Steven Meyers - Ashley's high school 'nemesis' (as Lily dubs him). First introduced in "Not-yet-but-soon-to-be Girlfriend" and appears once again in "Coming Out".



Dr. Rachel Howard - First appearance in "Shot". Is Lily's co-worker and best friend; Ashley's love interest - eventually becomes her wife.

Timothy "T.J." Jackson - Lily's husband, introduced in "Doctor's Appointments - Lily"


I think that's about it so far. If there are more original characters introduced in the stories, I'll add to the list…

Now, shoo, go read my fics! *grins madly*

Family Snapshots - High School Reunion

Tittle: Family Snapshots - High School Reunion
Author: storm_8
Fandom: Rizzoli & Isles
Pairing: Jane/Maura
Raiting: PG-13
Spoilers: Season 2 Episode 13 "Seventeen Ain't So Sweet".
Disclaimers: Ha! Obviously I don't own any of these characters... Except I do own the twins! (They are so cute!) And little Sarah... And the new addition to the family is mine too.
A/N: Unbeated, so all mistakes are mine

This is the longest installment ever for the "Family Snapshots". My take on what would happen if Jane took Maura and the kids to her high school reunion. There are no murders in this one, just the bits dealing with the high school reunion.

Summary: Jane did not want to go to her high school reunion - she wasn't Mrs. Whoever and she did not have a south end brownstone... She had a wife, one of her children wasn't biologically hers and another was an adopted teenager who thrived on not listening to her at all. And her mother lived in the guest house across the driveway. But they went anyway, and hell if it wasn't the best thing ever!

Enjoy! And remember comments are love!! They let writers know their work is enjoyed and appreciated!!

Here's another installment for this series that I have been saying would be up soon. It's longer than the previous one - I figured I'd go with a smaller fic first to get things going again and then give you something longer. Also, please see this post for an update on the series' future!

In this installment, our favorite ladies tackle board games. The children are not amused! And Denise even less!

Enjoy! And remember comments are love!! They let writers know their work is enjoyed and appreciated!!

The girl pointed toward the dinning room table where the Jenga tower had just gone crashing down, much to Lindsay’s delight and Jill’s horror.Collapse )

Another Joys of Motherhood Update

Some more news for you all...

I have been recently informed that my application for a PhD was approved, which means - pending a horrendous mountain of bureaucratic paperwork - I will be starting sometime in September/October. Hence, I will be busy!

So, I've been wondering if and how interested people still are in the "Joys of Motherhood" series. Because I will be busy and will only have a very limited amount of time to write. If interest remains, I will do my best to write new stuff as frequently as I can!

Any thoughts?

I will also add that I do have ideas for new stories. Like, Ashley spying on Lily when she's on a date; or answering some of the questions that came up after "A Walk to Remember" about Rachel's and Ashley's relationship and "Who the hell this 'Carla' person??".

Anyway, in the meantime there is another fic that will be posted in a few minutes. :)

Enjoy!

Joys of Motherhood Update

As you can see there is a new story up for this series. There is another one that I'll be posting soon and there is a second that is being written. :) Hope everyone is happy about this.

Also, and because I have a little bit of free time at the moment, I decided I'd make a timeline for the series, just to see where all the stories fit and if there were any glaring inconsistencies about, say the kids' ages and whether a story that makes mention of past events actually occurs AFTER those events. I did this, mostly because when I started writing the series I had no specific order for events happening. But as the universe grew, I realized it would probably be good that I organize the stories (especially for my benefit) so I can keep everything consistent.

So with that in mind, I have gone back to one or two stories and have changed little things. Nothing that would change the fics majorly, just details that help keep it all consistent. The updated versions will be up here on AO3 for anyone who wants to have another read-through.

Enjoy and keep commenting! It lets me know people still read and want more of this! :)

So, here's another installment in the "Joys of Motherhood" universe, which I have recently realized is enormous. So I decided to post it here first as I want to post the stories in order over at AO3. But feel free to head over there and read them again and we can reminisce over the good ol' days. :D

This time around, Lily is sick and Ashley brings home aunt Claire's miracle brew! :)

Enjoy! And remember comments are love!! And bribery for the muse...

Coffee Toothpaste and Pizza Grease

I'm back!

So, I'm not sure people are still waiting for more stories from me, but the truth is there are more coming for both the "Joys of Motherhood" and the "Family Snapshots" series. Will be posting those in the next few hours.

Another new thing is that I decided to get an AO3 account, because it is sooo much easier to post there than on here. You can find me at storm_8. Same user name and all! For now I have my Rizzoli & Isles stuff on there, but I'll be putting up the rest of my stories as well.

Hope you're still reading my stories, even after my absence! Life is crazy and there have been a lot of changes happening this past year, hence the long absence. But I'm still writing and will continue to do so, even if a bit more intermittently than before.

Enjoy your reading!
