Hi! Hard-Boiled Baby here, Baby or HBB for short. I first dipped my toes into fannish waters in 2009, and I've been having a blast ever since.

Besides this wonderful archive, my S&H stories can also be found at Archive of Our Own

I mostly hang out on LiveJournal; if you're in the neighborhood, feel free to stop by. Thanks for reading!
