Author has written 19 stories for Phantom of the Opera, Twilight, Doctor Who, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Being Human, Vampire Academy, Transformers, Vampire Diaries, X-Men: The Movie, and Captain America.

About me and my stories:

Hello, I am Firecracker-SJ and I am really just another average Joe-ette. I dabble in a bunch of fandoms, because I read quite a lot and probably watch too much television then is actually good for any one person. I love stories and the art of storytelling and I enjoy trying to write myself.

Favourite Quotes:

Gam zeh ya'avor - This too shall pass - Talmud

Save one life and you save the world in it's entire - Talmud

Death: You think so? Then take the universe and grind it down to the finest powder, and sieve it through the finest sieve, and then show me one atom of justice, one molecule of mercy. And yet, you try to act as if there is some ideal order in the world. As if there is some, some rightness in the universe, by which it may be judged.
Susan: But people have got to believe that, or what's the point?
Death: You need to believe in things that aren't true. How else can they become - Hogfather, by Terry Pratchett,

It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried. - Sir Winston Churchill

Sweet Pea: And finally. This question. The mystery of whose story it will be, of who draws the curtain. Who is it that chooses our steps in a dance? Who drives us mad, flashes us with whips, crowns us with victory when we survive the impossible? Who is it that tells all these things? Who honors those we love with the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us, and at the same time sings that we'll never die? Who teaches us what's real, and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live, and what we'll die to defend? Who chains us, and who holds the key to set us free? It's you. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight! - Suckerpunch

Currently working on:

I've got about a million other stories lined up in my head right now, so I have written them all down and now I am trying to challenge myself to write them all down within two months. So far I've finished Huntress and Empty Rooms, posted the second chapter of X-4 Revelations and have a few more ready to post after some editing.

Livejournal:

I cross-post all my work to my livejournal account: gloomyivashkov but it also contains icons, wallpapers, other fanworks and some original work. So if you like what I do, you might want to check that one out as well.
