Author has written 16 stories for Stravaganza, How to Be Popular, Meg Cabot, Twilight, Teen Idol, Merlin, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who.
ON HIATUS: I need to read some actual books and perhaps pass some important exams. Hopefully be back end of June13 if I regain faith that I won't be attacked purely on my choice of ship.
Me as a Reader:
Hi, I'm FallenStar22.
I'm slightly addicted to FanFiction... The longest I've managed to stay away is about two weeks...
I love Harry Potter, Dramione is my OTP but I'm open to reading other things too.
I look for realism mainly and I'm not too keen on fluff that doesn't seem natural.
I over analyse everything and resort to analysing what people mean when they favourite/alert. So I've compiled a decoder of what I mean when I do the things listed below:
If I only reviewed the last chapter of your story: I probably loved it so much I couldn't stop reading.
If I review in between: there was probably a particular bit that I liked that I wanted to point out.
If I favourite: I want to read your story again, or keep a link to show others.
If I alert: I may love it, or just want to find out more.
If I take you off alert: I'll probably message you saying why I didn't like it; if not, message me.
If I review but don't favourite or alert: I liked it, so I wanted to tell you, but it might just be a one time thing I want to read.
Me as a Writer:
Writing is something I fell in love with quite a while ago, and have just never seem to find the time to do. I don't have very much time to write things due to the fact that I'm an idiot and have taken all of the hardest possible subjects I can at school. So when I do write it is either spontaneous and never finished, or carefully planned and never started.
The New Apprentice (complete)
This is based on Mary Hoffman's Stravaganza series. I absolutely love the books and have read the first 3 books quite a few times. I only found out while writing this fic that there are another 2 books! One of the main things I love about City of Stars is the connection to star signs, and the way everything links together though that :) And how everyone gets paired up.
It's pretty much like a short version of a book, a new Stravaganti comes, except this is already in the city of Giglia. With mentoring by Giuditta, Jess manages to create a statue while getting off on the wrong foot with Arianna.
Pretty, Popular and Partnered (complete)
It's based on How to Be Popular and Teen Idol. Meg Cabot is my favourite author and I just love her books. I just started writing this one day, intending this to be a one-shot but then decided to carry on because people liked it. :) It's about an insecure girl called Poppy who is in a similar situation to Steph. She then meets Steph who helps her overcome her problem.
Only Once (two-shot)
Based on Teen Idol by Meg Cabot, a page from ASK Annie's advice column, and then a short story about Jen meeting a boy in the library.
Angela is a Vampire (one-shot)
A Twilight parody based around a camping trip I went on. One of my friends was suspiciously vampire like so we all joked about her being a vampire.
I'll Watch You Grow Into The King Camelot Deserves (one-shot)
This is a one shot from Gwen's prospective during S3E6 when Arthur is getting married to Princess Elena.
Merlin, I Know Your Secret (complete)
This is a Mergana fic based on when Morgana decides to tell Merlin she knows he is a sorcerer. From Merlin's and Morgana's POV. The ending was rushed in order to actually finish it but I like the first two chapters.
You Owe Me A New Bed (one-shot)
A really random HP idea that came into my head; not really something I would write. A mature implicated Dramione based around Blaise and Draco's bet with the prize of a bed.
Rain for Reflection (one-shot)
A small drabble about Hermione's thoughts on what she did to her parents while the rain falls.
Albus Dumbledore and the Flaming Curtains (one-shot)
A short fic about Dumbledore setting his curtains on fire when he mentions it in the fourth movie.
The Irony of Being a Mudblood/Death/Eater (complete - two poems)
The first poem about Hermione just came out and then I decided to write a companion poem about Draco.
The Prefects' Parting Kiss (one-shot)
Slightly angsty mistletoe moment for Draco and Hermione. It did start off fluffy but that's because I started it the year before. I can't really deal with too much fluff so I changed the ending to something a bit more realistic.
It'll Snow Again Next Year Doctor (one-shot)
I was inspired by snow and while thinking of snow and fanfiction I thought The Snowmen. Some of the moments with Clara and the snow were beautiful so I thought I'd write something based upon snow from Clara's POV. She is dead in this fic but it does work. It's a bit like a letter to the Doctor.
7 Years of Halloween (WIP)
Short drabbles from Hermione and Draco's POV on the thoughts they had about each other, each Halloween. I will finish this, I've just been sidetracked by longer fics and this one is harder to research than I first thought it would be.
Waiting for Welford Ward (complete)
Dr Who, Pond and Rory. When you have a Dr Who like adventure, the least you could is write it up! Based on a late night visit to a hospital where everything was a bit strange. It has been finished but I fail to remember if I actually did conclude it...
This is my favourite fic so far. I have no idea where the idea came from and I never thought I would sympathise with Slytherins, but I was inspired by this quote:
To judge someone at the age of 11, to judge them, to set their future course so young, seems to me to be a very harsh thing to do. And it doesn't take into account the fact that we do change and evolve. A lot of people are, at 40, what they weren't at 11. - Joanne Rowling in MN/TLC chat.
That's the angle I'm taking with this fic and it's the one I'm currently writing. It has been a struggle to write so many (fourteen) main characters, but it's really cool being able to create this snapshot of people we've never seen before. Theo/Daphne is my favourite couple there, there are no other obvious couples to me yet besides Dramione. Daphne/Hermione interactions are by far my favourite to write and I know some people would think that Draco should be the one sparring with her, but with Daphne it feels more natural and appropriate. I'm not going to rush the Dramione, apologies!
Of All Cursed Days (one-shot)
This is a collection of one hundred word drabbles (eight I think) from Hermione's point of view on Valentine's Day. I found this writing technique in a founders fic called The Second Pair by My Dear Professor McGonagall (I recommend it!) and I had to try it out. I really enjoyed writing in this style even though this fic wasn't the easiest to write.
I have a couple of Harry Potter fics waiting to be written that contain some quite unusual ideas ;) One is called On Time and Turners and is a Founders fic with their opinions on time. The second is a surprise because as far I know, there aren't any other fics like it. I have a few one shots floating unfinished, so when the appropriate holiday comes along I will finish and post them.
I do hope to update regularly, but due to school, and many forthcoming exams/coursework/life in general, this may be quite difficult and I appreciate you being patient. I'm generally quite busy as I take part in a lot of extra-curricular, and while I admire those working parents who still write, I just can't do that, and I don't want to promise something I can't do. It is something I'm working on though. I'll probably get to write in the holidays though :)
Thanks for taking the time to read :)
