This is the place to start if you want to make any kind of sense out of this mess I've made.
This is just a quick (and hopefully handy) listing of my stories. I'm hoping this will help anyone who comes upon one of my newer stories to figure out what the hell is going on. Or, at least, help them figure out where to go to figure out what the hell is going on.
NOTE: Clicking on the main header for a story will take you to that story's gallery. Clicking on an individual chapter title will take you directly to that chapter.
001 - The Cuthbert Exception
The first story in the Rampage Sports anthology, it tells the story of how Middleweight competitors Britney Spears and Elisha Cuthbert first started down the road to becoming known as a single entity. It also sets the precedent for exactly how much control Richelle is really going to have over things.
The Cuthbert Exception
002 - Stress Management
After yet another tough loss in a string of bad results suffered by Steph McMahon causes her frustrations to boil over after an event. This is the story of what happened next... and how team leader Danni Harris discovered Richelle is more than just a pretty face.
003 - Surprising Steph
Steph makes her first real impact in her new position as Fighter Development Coordinator for RSI. And she wastes no time piercing through to the things that matter most ot her stable owner.
004 - Nightmare Relived
Featherweight contender Tiffany Mulheron suffers a devastating loss at the hands of her most hated foe. She walks out in frustration, leaving Richelle unsure if she's ever coming back. When Tiff's training partner - Emma Watson - goes after her, no one has the slightest clue that it's the first of a series of events that will eventually lead to disaster.
005 - Emma Goes All In
The mystery surrounding Tiffany and Emma is resolved... in a very unexpected way. My goal in this story was to have Emma do something that would seem very out of character for her real life counterpart. I have to admit, I accomplished it. But the way I did it... well, let's just say that, if by some ridiculously slim chance Emma and I end up in the same place at the same time, she would have the right to punch me directly in the face. And I should be forced to keep my hands at my sides and just take it.
Emma Goes All In
006 - Unintended Consequences
Richelle did such an awesome job fixing things in the last story that the situation has gone from bad to nearly hopeless. The owner is prepared to do whatever it takes to make things right... and it costs her and her friends far more dearly than she ever could have expected.

007 and a 1/2 - The Friendship Test
Sorry for the funny numbering, but I stupidly forgot to include this when I originally posted the stories. It's a story I co-wrote with a friend (and fellow UMMA manager), so I didn't have it filed with my solo stuff. It's sad that I missed it, because there's a lot of significant stuff in here.
Anyway... while Rampage Sports is finally finding its groove, the Dragon's Den stable has been struggling since the day it was formed. In a desperate search for answers, Dragon stable leader, Sophia Bush, turns to an old friend. A friend who clearly knows exactly what it takes to lead a successful stable... because she's already leading one.
