|Maethorwen of Atlantis|
Author has written 19 stories for Star Wars, Jedi Apprentice, Harry Potter, Torchwood, Lord of the Rings, Cadfael, and Power Rangers.
I am a female American college student who loves to write. I love Sci-Fi and Fantasy mainly.
Movies: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings (read the books, but didn't really care for them), Harry Potter (books as well up through book 5), The Covenant and Pirates of the Caribbean
With Harry Potter, I simply pretend that books 6 & 7 never happened for many many reasons. Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione are the most ridiculous pairings anyway.
TV: Star Trek, Stargate (SG-1 & Atlantis, not Universe), NCIS, NCIS: LA, Doctor Who, Charmed, JAG, Merlin, Torchwood, Supernatural and Power Rangers
I am one of the many who refuses to admit that the Star Trek: Enterprise finale These Are the Voyages ever happened. It was the worst finale I have ever seen. So if I ever actually write an Enterprise fic, I will disregard it.
Also, as far as I am concerned SG-1 was over when O'Neill left. I can't stand any of the new people.
I loved season one of Torchwood and some of season two, but anything post Reset (including the whole fiasco that is Children of Earth) I despise.
I also seem to be on a ridiculous Power Rangers kick lately. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to Zeo that is. Jason is the best Red Ranger. Period. Tommy needed to stick to Green or White. If it was up to me the Peace Conference (aka the contract disputes that caused it) would not have happened. Some of the later ones were ok, but others were terrible. None can beat the original!
Manga: Fruits Basket (the only series I've read, but I loved it)
I don't read or write slash. I have no problems with those who do; its just not my thing.
I write when I have free time. I write about things I like. I often write AU because I can do whatever I want then. I like to experiment with "what if" ideas, which really can only be done with an AU story. I appreciate reviews and constructive criticism. I write for fun, but I don't want to do a bad job. That's about all there is about me.
Star Trek Enterprise: Trip/T'Pol
Star Wars: Han/Leia, Obi-Wan/OFC, Anakin/Padme, Obi-Wan/Padme
Stargate Atlantis: McKay/Weir, Sheppard/Teyla, Lorne/OFC, Beckett/Cadman, McKay/Keller
Stargate SG-1: Sam/Jack, Daniel/Janet
Star Trek TNG: Riker/Troi, Dr. Crusher/Capt. Picard
Harry Potter: Harry/Hermione, James/Lily, Sirius/OFC, Remus/OFC, Oliver Wood/Katie Bell, Cedric Diggory/OFC, Fred/Angelina, George/Alicia
Doctor Who: 9/10 Doctor/Rose (they so have to be together! life is unfair!), or failing that Rose/Jack (I know what you're thinking, but it could work. And I think its cute)
Fruits Basket: Kyo/Tohru, Yuki/Machi
NCIS: Tony/Kate, Tony/Ziva, McGee/Abby, Gibbs/Jen
Torchwood: Jack/Gwen, Owen/Tosh, Owen/OFC
If you wholeheartedly believe that Jack and Gwen should stop messing around and just get together, copy and paste this onto your profile.
The Covenant: Caleb/Sarah, Pogue/Kate, Reid/OFC, Tyler/OFC (Seriously those guys are not gay. I hate it when people write them that way)
Charmed: Prue/Andy (they were totally meant to be), Piper/Leo (they are just so cute together & definitely were meant to be), Phoebe/Cole (what happened was just so wrong!)
JAG: Harm/Meg (imagine where it could have gone if she hadn't been replaced after season 1)
Merlin: Arthur/Morgana (I'm in denial over Morgana being Uther's daughter. In my little world, they aren't related.), Merlin/Gwen (They're adorable together and the whole Arthur/Gwen thing just feels so forced)
MMPR: Tommy/Kim (In my fantasy world #1, she never wrote that stupid letter), Jason/Kim (never thought about it much when I was younger, but after seeing the Turbo movie recently, I now see the potential in MMPR for those two, plus Jason is just plain awesome)
PotC: Will/Elizabeth (they are totally meant to be and I'm in the "Elizabeth was faithful so Will gets to come home after ten years" camp on this one)
Least Fav Pairings:
Stargate: Atlantis: Weir/Sheppard, Teyla/Ronon, Teyla/Kanaan (i can't believe this one, what were TPTB thinking?)
Harry Potter: Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Harry/Cho, any student/teacher pairing, Hermione/any of the Marauders even if its a time travel fic
Fruits Basket: Yuki/Tohru
NCIS: Basically any other then the ones above
Charmed: Prue/anyone other then Andy, Piper/Dan (just no!), Piper/any guy from season 6, Phoebe/just about anyone other than Cole (I do like Coop to some degree, but those other guys...)
Merlin: Arthur/Gwen (I know its cannon, but we all know how it will end, which makes me despise it)
PotC: Jack/Elizabeth (just no)
MMPR/Zeo: Tommy/Kat (she was simply Kim's replacement in every way. this never would have worked.)
All fandoms: any slash pairing, if it isn't canon don't force it! (though I must admit that many scenes in X-Men: First Class screamed sexual tension between Charles and Erik...slash goggles not needed to see that)
Some of my fav quotes:
If you Believe in Jesus Christ, put this on your profile, and don't deny this, because the bible says, "Deny me, and I will Deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven."
This above all; to thine own self be true. -Shakespeare
We know what we are, but not what we may be. -Shakespeare

Amateurs built the Ark. Professionals built the Titanic. Which one would you prefer? (I'll take the Ark, thanks)

Weird is good, strange is bad, and odd is when you don't know which to call someone. Weird is the same as different, which is the same as unique, than weird is good.

Person 1: 'Cause whoever did it is a freakin' genius.
I am the girl...that doesn't go to school dances or games. I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird, and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on MySpace, or talking to a friend on a cellphone or regular phone. I am the girl that hasn't ever been asked out. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain. But I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn't care if people call her weird (it's a compliment), who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who loves and is obsessed with Orlando Bloom or another actor no longer hugely popular, who can express herself better without words than with words, and knows the importance of the little things. Copy and Paste this onto your account if you are anything like me, so the girls who are different and unique can know in their weakest times that they are unique, but not alone.
When I'm older...and my little girl asks me who my first love was I dont want to have to pull out the old photo album. I want to be able to point across the room and say: "he is sitting right over there."
Girls Don't realize these things:
I'm sorry that I bought you roses to tell you that I like you
I'm sorry that I was raised with respect not to sleep with you when you were drunk
I'm sorry that my body's not ripped enough to "satisfy" your wants
I'm sorry that I open your car door, and pull out your chair like I was raised
I'm sorry that I'm not cute enough to be "your guy"
I'm sorry that I am actually nice; not a jerk
I'm sorry I don't have a huge bank account to buy you expensive things
I'm sorry I like to spend quality nights at home cuddling with you, instead of at a club
I'm sorry I would rather make love to you then just screw you like some random guy.
I'm sorry that I am always the one you need to talk to, but never good enough to date
I'm sorry that I always held your hair back when you threw up, and didn't get mad at you for puking in my car, but when we went out you went home with another guy
I'm sorry that I am there to pick you up at 4am when your new man hit you and dropped you off in the middle of nowhere, but not good enough to listen to me when I need a friend
I'm sorry if I start not being there because it hurts being used as a door mat, only to be thrown to the side when the new jerk comes around
I'm sorry If I don't answer my phone anymore when you call, to listen to you cry for hours, instead of getting a couple hours of sleep before work
I'm sorry that you can't realize.. I've been the one all along.
I'm sorry if you read this and know somebody like this but don't care
But most of all I'm sorry for not being sorry anymore
I'm sorry that you can't accept me for who I am
I'm sorry I can never do anything right, and nothing that I do is good enough to make it in your world.
I'm sorry I caught your boyfriend with another girl and told you about it, I thought that was what friends were for...
I'm sorry that I told you I loved you and actually meant it.
I'm sorry that I talked to you for nine hours on Thanksgiving when your boyfriend was threatening you instead of spending time with my family.
I'm Sorry that I cared
I'm sorry that I listen to you at night talking about how you wish you could have done something different.
Ladies always complain and gripe to their friends that there is never any good guys out there, and they always end up with assholes who mistreat them. Well ladies, next time you're complaining, maybe look up to see who you're complaining to, maybe that special someone is right there hanging on your every word as usual, screaming in his head "Why won't you give me a chance?"
If you're a guy and you agree with this letter, copy and paste into your profile as 'I'm sorry'
If you're one of the FEW girls with enough BALLS to copy and paste this into your profile, and you would never make your guy feel this way, copy and paste into your profile as 'Girls Don't Realize These Things' (I copied this because girls like that piss me off to no end, they take advantage of the good guys because they think the "bad boy" thing is attractive...get a grip! Nice guys, I promise we're not all like those stupid girls.)
ACTUAL PRODUCT LABELS THAT SCARE ME:
On a Sears hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping.
On a bag of Fritos! ..You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside. (so they're encouraging stealing now?)
On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap." (is there such a thing as irregular soap?)
On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestion: Defrost." (we really shouldn't have to tell people that)
On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom): "Do not turn upside down." (a bit late for that, don't you think?)
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating." (no really? i never would have guessed!)
On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body." (well i guess that would be more efficient time wise...)
On Boot's Children Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication." (umm...seriously?)
On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness." (i would certainly hope so. isn't that kinda the point?)
On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only." (there's another option?)
On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use." (and this other use would be what? i'm actually curious about this one.)
On Sunsbury's peanuts: "Warning: contains nuts." (imagine that)
On an American Airlines packet of nuts: "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts." (this one is somewhat insulting to our collective intelligence)
On a child's superman costume: "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly." (no really? and here i thought it would really make the kid a superhero...)
On a Swedish chainsaw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands." (were people actually stupid enough to try??? you know what, nevermind. just look at the stupid things people do.)
OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

Also, I decided to go ahead and take down a number of my older stories. I read through some of them again and decided it was time to remove them. I had not planned on doing so initially, but I felt it was best. I'm sorry if anyone really like any of them.
