Author has written 7 stories for Lion King.
Hi! I'm Kari Gilmore, but my friends call me Katarina Furlong, or Katney for short. Othertimes I'm known as KatneySK. Let's get to the basics: I'm female, and my birthday is December 15th.
I have been here for a number of years and have produced more stories than what are listed here, but I had them removed because they A) were listed out of order, and B) had my old writing style of crappy stuff. Trust me, they're better left unknown and/or forgotten...
Right now, I'm working on The Lion King, Timon and Pumbaa (TLK 1.5-based) in particular. Just so you know, most of those TLK fics are Timon/OC and Pumbaa/OC. But I do work hard to make sure all of my original characters don't fall under the "Mary-Sue" category. None of the characters are based of me or people associated with me. Thus far I have been praised for my characters and have been told they are like canon characters, which makes me proud. However, if you pick just one of my TLK fictions, I do highly recommend you read Son of Fearless Buzz. It's a real tear-jerker in many opinions, and also very few original characters to start with. My writing techniques have improved since then, though. I may actually go back and revise some of my past work, without seriously altering them, of course! Since I have so many original characters in the TLK series, I will go ahead and list of the characters in order they appear so you won't be too confused...

That’s all of the OCs for the moment. Now get to reading!
Look, I've got fanart! These are the ones I know of, so if there are others, I'd love to know about them:
http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/6348783/ This fanart was made by strangesheelf. Aren't they cute? The flowers and bugs around them are very nicely drawn.
http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/16813279/ Fanart by Dollhousesareforwhimps. Sorry if I got your name wrong. Heh-heh... simple picture of Timon and Buzz, but I like.
http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/18813576/ A cute picture of Timon and Sly... Timon looks especially adorable here as he gives Sly bunny-ears. This one done by Total-Jewel. If you haven't finished reading Out of the Blue, or at least read up to Chapter 37ish, don't read her description, or else spoilers.
http://www.deviantart.com/view/24505261/Here's a surprise pick of Morake from Pichooi. Cutie looks hungry.
http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/46074701/ I suppose this counts as fanart as Son of Fearless Buzz set Shuggie's mind that Buzz is Timon's father. Look at them... aren't they adorable?
http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/51653930/ The largest collection of my OCs so far! Also done by Shuggie. It's basically fan art for Natural Instinct, featuring many of the new characters and some of my older characters (characters not featured include but are not limited by Jina, Sudi, and Pete). Included in the picture include (among others) are Kito, Shani, Nuru, Naysun, Kano, and Kali.
http://tooka.deviantart.com/art/Goodbye-Titus-95761086 I'm not sure if this person has a FF.N account, but doing some random searches on dA I found this, based on a scene in Out of the Blue where Buzz buries Titus's doll when he disappears. Drawn by Tooka.
http://katneysk.deviantart.com/favourites/#Son-of-Fearless-Buzz-Comic-Adaptation I'm not sure if this person has a FF.N account, but another random search and I found a series of comics drawn by Genbe89 and adapting mainly chapters 6 thru 8 of my Son of Fearless Buzz fic into a comic (which I abandoned attempting by the second page). He does a very nice job with meerkats. He also has some pictures of Buzz scattered here and there, so it's worth a look at. NOTE: his comics read like a manga: from right to left.
Also some art collected in here: http://katneysk.deviantart.com/favourites/#TLK-Fan-Art At least those I find on dA
Thanks to all and see y'all as soon as I get another story rolling... already have some ideas, but working out details and such.
