sparkle's ER fanfic

Welcome! My name is Leyla -- my nickname is Sparkle and I'm the author of the fanfic on this page.

**a little background on me and the stories before you dig in**

Eh, what do you really want to know? Not much to say. I started watching ER at the beginning, stopped for a year somewhere in the middle, and I'm glad I came back. Even with the major cast member departures (George Clooney, Julianna Marguiles, Gloria Reuben, and more) the characters on right now that I wouldn't mind seeing vamoose (I'm not naming names), I'm still glad I watch ER.

For me, the reason I fell in love with ER was John Carter, played by Noah Wyle and the reason I kept watching was because of Kerry Weaver, played by Laura Innes. (Well, I kept watching for Noah too. No use denying that.)

I've always especially liked the character of Kerry Weaver and this past season was a tremendous one for Kerry *and* Laura Innes -- tons of great material to work with and some great episodes (The Peace of Wild Things, All in the Family). Like that's not enough, she did an amazing job of directing one of my favourite episodes, Be Still My Heart.

In the first season, Carter was a young and green medical student. Noah Wyle was amazing then and is incredible now. He had a tremendous year this past season as well, and we watched in horror as Carter was stabbed (Be Still My Heart), and was confronted about his drug addiction (May Day).

All of this to say that without the incredible acting talents of both Noah Wyle and Laura Innes, I wouldn't be writing these stories and you wouldn't be on this page. And the ratings for ER would drop a micro-drop (not like anyone would notice). So: to give credit where credit is due, my thanks go to Noah and Laura, for giving the world two very complex and compelling characters to watch every week.

Writing ER fanfic was inevitable. I've been writing X-Files fanfic for almost six years now, and I've always wanted to branch into ER fic too, and I finally started writing and posting to a few months ago.
