About

Hey! My name is Hope, and I break hearts with my stories—or at least that's what people keep telling me.

I write unflinching stories of physically and emotionally dangerous loves, and about the power of healing, forgiveness and acceptance—although a scar or two might remain. Twisting disturbing theological concepts into kinky smut fic and spinning sadness into gold is totally my jam.

My primary project is The Poison Path series about Magdeline Blackweir, a young dispossessed queen with poison in her veins. There's a lot of court intrigue, witches, and murder. My original fic tends to focus on wlw content, although in general I write a lot of queer romance.

I'm currently working on the next chapter in the series, tentatively titled The Naming of Hawks. Look for it in March/April of this year!

I also create transformative fiction at the Archive of Our Own, where I primarily write about NBC's Hannibal.

You can find me all over the internet as lovetincture. My social media presence is pretty firmly consolidated to Twitter, which is a good place to get in touch with me. I'm also one half of Conjoined, a podcast about Hannibal and fandom.

The pitch!
I'm gonna be honest: I'm often tired. I devote most of my waking hours to writing, which I love, but doing this for work and a hobby gets exhausting. Right now I pay the bills by taking on freelance copywriting gigs. It's a fine job, as jobs go, but it does mean that I often tread dangerously close to burnout. It's a bad feeling!

By kicking in a couple bucks per month, you can help me spend less time writing words for The Man and more time telling stories. One day I'd love to be able to support myself solely off my fiction work, but I'm not quite there yet. Maybe we can get there together!
