Hello! I'm Southern Steel and if you're reading this then thank you for your interest in me and my writing! I will try and keep this short (which is hard because I am so long winded) and just give you a little information about me and what I write. Skip down past my in-progress stories to learn more about me and my writing. :)
My In-Progress Stories
Unnatural History: "The Anthropologist's Son"--On hold until further notice.
Chronicles of Narnia: "Then There Were Two"-- Between Merlin and my own story I have lost track of this one...no promises on when the next chapter will be.
Merlin: "A Change of Fate"-- Slightly lost track of this story, but am determained to update at least a week or every two weeks if possible.
As I said before, I'm Southern Steel. As you can probably guess, I am a Southerner (from the US, just to make that clear) and I am proud of it. I am a huge history buff, with my top three favorite periods to study being: (1) The American Civil War. (2) Ancient Egypt and (3) Irish history. But my top area of expertise, I guess you could say, is the American Civil War. So if you ever see random history facts in my story, then you know why.
I suppose you could say I am a rather dark person. I tend to be rather serious (though I do love to laugh and smile) and have a very dark sence of humor. I am socially awkward, which is probably why I'm on fanfiction all the time. I am also a Christian and Jesus is number one in my life. Without Him, I would not be who I am and would be in a very bad place. He saved me and for that I give Him the total glory and praise.
About My Writing
As I stated above, I am very long-winded, so most of my stories will be several (or more) chapters long and as descriptive as I can make them. I love desciptive writing and I do tend to go overboard on it, but it's fun, though not as fun as tearing apart a character's inner-most being and thoughts about any little thing. That is becoming something that is more fun to me then watching the shows themselves!
I also stated that I am a rather dark person. That definatly shows through in my writing as most of my stories have very dark themes. I have wrote about child abuse, torture--both mental and physical--kidnapping, war, and death. I don't write to praise these things, but to call awareness to them, especially child abuse. I feel strongly about this things and want to call attention to them and take the glory from them, revealing the true horrors they are.
Please forgive me of any grammer or spelling mistakes in my stories. I am awful at both and the only spell check I have is on fanfiction and, to be honest, I don't always have the time or energy to use it. I try to catch all my mistakes, but I appologize in advance for any I do make.
Perhaps most important, however, is I do not write slash and I never will. That is just something I cannot support and, quite frankly, digusts me. I respect other's rights to write, read, ect. slash, but I will not give my support to it in any way. I'm not a romantic person in the first place--I much prefer action, adventure, angst, and tragedy--but in the few stories I write that are romance, they are strictly between a boy and girl.
If you enjoy my stories--or even if you don't--please go check out the stories under "My Favorites." I am an extreamly picky reader and have several criteria that I pay attention to when reading. This includes: Good grammer, decent spelling, good plotline, be interesting, mostly in character, well written, and either complete or updated frequantly. The stories that I have favorited embrace these criteria and are, I believe, the absolute best and most amazing stories on fanfiction (That I have found so far.)
The categories I have favorited are: Merlin, Bonanza, Harry Potter, Power Rangers, Alias Smith and Jones, Gettysburg, Robin Hood BBC, Sandlot, Chronicles of Narnia, Protector of the Small, Supernatural, Psych and Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew. Do the authors a favor like you are doing me and go and check out some of these fantastic stories. :)
