Author has written 10 stories for Canterbury Tales, Peter Pan, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Doctor Who, and Zorro.
Well, after floating around here for ten years, I thought it might be time to do something with my profile. And, wow, it literally is ten years. I've definitely done more reading than writing around here, but there are such talented writers in so many fandoms, I've gotten a lot of enjoyment out of the reading. I'm still enjoying that even as I've restarted writing on my own things.
So for background, I consider myself a child of the 1980s, though my user name is inspired by the late-nineteenth century best-selling novelist, Marie Corelli, who now languishes in pretty much reasonably deserved obscurity (though some of her books are still pretty readable--she wrote truly purple prose that could be almost hypnotic in its intensity). She was a bit of a diva, who thought her writing was transcendental genius on par with Shakespeare instead of someone who just managed to catch the tide of popular culture of the time, and she had some truly Mary Sueish characters. I'm not sure what it says about me that I chose this, since the only thing we really have in common is an unreasoning love of the em dash and parenthetical statements, or maybe dream imagery. It could be the dream imagery.
I love reading with a passion, and I love to write (though I went through quite a nasty bout of writer's block that lasted years); I have a tendency to write at a slowish pace. And after that nasty bout of writer's block that made "One More Rich in Hope" take three years to complete, I'm determined to never again to start posting another story without the draft being finished. "Love Has No Rhyme and No Reason" is not really an exception as it's really a series of episode-based stories set in the same alternate universe. Each story in that one will be complete before it's published.
I love Doctor Who (almost all of it, even the wobbly bits), Zorro (both Disney and New World), Scarecrow and Mrs. King and at the moment I'm mainly working on stories for these (well, New World Zorro rather than Disney, though if I can come up with an idea for the latter I'll write that too). I must admit I'm rather fond of doing crossovers when I've got the right material, even if it's a stretch.
Beyond those, I'm interested in the Discworld books (primarily City Watch ones), Star Trek, Leverage, The Lord of the Rings, Sherlock Holmes (in many forms, but Rathbone will always be my Holmes), The Shadow (pulp and radio), Doc Savage, and Old time radio mysteries, mystery novels, and old movies in general, but especially mystery and sci-fi pictures. I'm most fond of intelligent heroes as well as intelligent villains.
Also, beyond fanfiction, I do have a fondness for making fanvideos, and I'm also LaCorelli on YouTube () where I've done videos for Zorro, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, and Doctor Who. In other words, pretty much the same shows I write fanfiction for.
And that's about it.
