Hi, I'm Madianna, but in real life people call me Maddie. You can call me Maddie if you like. It's short for both my names!
I'm here because I love to write and I've wanted to be an author since I was nine. I can't imagine doing anything else. I'm going to be studying English and Creative Writing at university in September, so it looks like that dream is shaping up!
So, a little bit about me...
I'm a very creative person. Besides writing, I like making jewellery, drawing (even though I'm awful at it!), reading, listening to music, going to the theatre, watching good films, watching dance performances, playing Sims 2, and doing a bit of singing and dancing myself, even though I am awful.
I am also a cat lover. In fact, there are some who call me a mad cat lady. Currently, I have a big tomcat called Casper, who's black and white. He had a sister, Pandora, who was tragically killed in a car accident. I also have two tortoiseshell cats called Bella and Luna. Bella has recently had five kittens and they are adorable!
I am also an Aquarius with a Scorpio ascendant and a moon in Gemini. Totally fits!
My favourite books are the Harry Potter series, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Game of Thrones, The Catcher In The Rye, The Kite Runner, I, Coriander, The Thief Lord, Good Night, Mr. Tom, The Secret Garden, North Child, and To Kill a Mockingbird. If anyone's interested in reading any of these, then send me a message and I'll tell you where to find them. Same goes for the rest of the stuff on my page.
My favourite plays are all of Shakespeare's stuff. But my ultimate favourite play is Romeo and Juliet, and Mercutio is my favourite character because he's so rude and dirty and funny. I don't know if I'd like him in real life but he's bloody hilarious to read and watch! I love writing fanfiction about him doing crazy stuff I wouldn't dare too! His character is a genius. I am going to name my first born son Mercutio, after him, and I am going to name my first born daughter Madonna.
My favourite films are Juno, Black Swan, Mean Girls, W.E, Romeo and Juliet, Mulan, Pocahontas, Harry Potter films, Evita and Saathiya.
My favourite singers/groups are Lady Gaga, Kate Bush, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Jeffree Star, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Blood On The Dance Floor, Tori Amos and Kimya Dawson. I also love various soundtracks of films. I'm a bit of a sucker for pop music!
I normally write stories for the Shakespeare fandom - particularly my series, the Child Swap series, which is kind of what I'm known for, however, I have began to experiment by uploading my very first Harry Potter fanfiction, and a fanfiction for Richard III.
The Untold Tale of Tybalt and Rosaline - This story is Rosaline and Tybalt's version of events during Romeo and Juliet. I'm not continuing it, however, I have turned into a story set in the modern day, and it is now What's Love?
Child Swap - Romeo, Mercutio and Benvolio throw Tybalt in the fountain, and find themselves making a reality TV show about what would happen if the Capulets and Montagues swapped kids for two weeks. Will they discover they have more in common than they don't?
So anyway, I completed Child Swap and I decided to start writing a sequel. However, before I posted it I decided to do weeklong daily teaser posted on deviantart. If you still want to have a look at them, here's the link to my page
A Long Year's Nightmare - Sequel to Child Swap! A year after the experimental swap, Hermia is left torn between her feelings. And then she gets a little surprise. What can she do to?
I'm Yours - A song fic about Hermia and Benvolio to 'I'm Yours' by Jason Mraz.
What's Love? - How exactly did Romeo and Juliet meet? What is this backstory between Benvolio, Gabriel and Rose? What happened when Mercutio filmed Tybalt and Rosaline together and showed Romeo? What made Rosaline, one of the top students and Queen Bee, fall for chavvy troublemaker Tybalt?
Criminal - Another song fic, although this time it's about Tybalt and Rosaline and it goes to 'Criminal' by Britney Spears. This song has always reminded me of them.
The Students Of Venice - Sequel to ALYN. Benvolio and Mercutio leave Verona for Venice, to attend Ca' Foscari University, taking with them Hermia, Eliseo and Allegra (who belongs to Cornadopa, read Mercutio and Allegra, people, it's in my favs) Everything's fine, until Benvolio's dad Anthony falls into debt, and accepts a loan from an old school rival, Shylock, with a dodgy forfeit. Meanwhile, Gabriel gets thrown out of La Scala Ballet Company and Tybalt and Rosaline accept an internship for finance company, based in Venice.
Mean Boys - Benvolio moves from Africa to Verona, where he meets 'The King Cat' Tybalt! Romeo and Juliet do Mean Girls!
The Girl Who Lied - Snape escorts a new student to Hogwarts around Diagon Alley to get her supplies - but who is she and what is her connection to him?
Lapland - A 'ten years later' Christmas vignette of the Child Swap series, based on the BBC drama of the same name. The families from Child Swap go on holiday to Lapland during Christmas, only to endure trouble and chaos.
Robin Hood, the Pantomime - My Sixth Form Christmas Pantomime that I co-authored!
R.A - A modern day couple, Rick and Annika meet online. Annika is a Ricardian and Rick is a freelance journalist working on an article about Richard III. As they grow closer, the lives of Richard III and his queen, Anne Neville, begin to intertwine. Can Annika and Rick answer that centuries old question - was Richard III innocent or evil?
Ideas For Future Stories
Mercutio Rules - After Escalus and most of Mercutio's family are killed, Mercutio is left as the Prince of Verona. Which means no more parties, no more mischief, no more fun with his Montague friends. But how will he cope when dealing with the feud? After all, forcing Tybalt to become his personal slave isn't exactly legal... I also don't know if I should do this one in modern day setting or ye olde times.
Measure Against Measure - The final installment of the Child Swap series. Gabriel has finally grown up and escaped his horrible father Angelo's clutches. But when his partner Amparo asks him to help her and her closest friend Isabella take Angelo down for her political career, whose side should he take? And was Angelo as bad as he believed?
