Hello fellow fanfic readers/writers.
I've been writing on and off on this site for several years now. On the plus side I've "met" many lovely people, (hopefully) learnt a lot from those who have been kind enough to share their writing tips with me, read many fantastic stories and have generally had a great time writing and sharing my (usually daft) fics with FFNet.
On the downside... Well I wish I had more free time to indulge my fanfic addiction.
I read fics on here for a long while before I plucked up the guts to post anything, so for anyone worried about "taking the plunge" go for it - the vast majority of people on here are friendly and willing to help out if you get stuck or are nervous.
The "M" rated chapters for "Something Borrowed, Something Blue" and "Gone" can be found here:
To anyone waiting for "Winters Song" I'm sorry but I have an utter blank with regard it at the moment. I know how annoying it is when fics aren't finished believe me.
Everything to do with the "Chosen" AU I'm done with, but anyone is most welcome to play with it.
(More beautiful eye-candy courtesy of TheSaintlikeWeasley http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1718344/ who has made a lovely banner for "Llynya's Song"
And another gorgeous one for "Faithless"
18/09/2011 The very clever Lee Mayfair http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2340067/ Has made beautiful banners for "Llynya's Song":
Nothing like eye-candy to brighten up a rainy sunday :)
"Elephants" has been nominated for Best Parker Based Fic in the Fulcrum Awards;
Thanks very much to whoever nominated me - totally unexpected. There's lots of brilliant Leverage fics on there if you are a Leverage fic junkie like me :)
"Winter's Song" is still going and I should have the next chapter up in a couple of days.
"Chosen" is finished and has some lovely banners created by Symphonia-Angel-Luna here:
The first installment of "Chosen Aftermath" is up. It's just going to be bits and pieces when I come up with an idea rather than a proper story. (I consider it an open AU, so if anyone wants to play in that particular sandbox then they are welcome to).
"Winter's Song" is back up and running.
Symphonia-Angel-Luna has made some lovely banners for Chosen:
And Hansel and Gretel Redux:
The lovely and talented Symphonia-Angel-Luna http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1135100/ very kindly offered to make some banners for the Llynya's Song, Faithless and Fragile trilogy, and a brilliant job she did at it too. If you'd like to see how I pictured Llynya, Lucy and Rowan then why not have a look?
Galahad and Kyrie
Castiel's "User's Guide " is now up up on the Supernatural User's Guide series. I'm not sure that I'm going to do any other characters, but if anyone else wants to take the idea and run with it then go ahead ( I got the idea from a couple of Lord Of The Rings fics that I now can't find.)
"Winter's Song" and "Beyond the Veil" are on hiatus at the moment. Sorry to people who have been reading them, I'll probably get back to them after "Chosen" is finished, but there won't be any updates soon.
Fairytale series is finished - if you want to use the idea then you're welcome to it (although if you don't mind I'd love to read someone else's fairytales, so drop me a line if you don't mind sharing). I sort of pinched the idea off Neil Gaiman's twisted version of Snow White in his "Smoke and Mirrors" anthology - go read it if you haven't, it's awesome.
Because it's confusing when writing a lot of different OC's here's a brief explanation of who the characters in "Chosen" are.

Police moved in, shots were fired, and Lancelot was knocked out by one of the dealers who planted a gun on him. Lancelot got 12 years at Samartia prison - Served 6 months.

Believes that a new age is coming and that the Saxons must be defeated, but is wary of the military.
Guinevere: 22. Home schooled, travelled a lot when she was younger. Initially resentful of her childhoods lack of roots, the Tx virus meant that she had to re-examine everything he had told her and she had dismissed. Very independent.
