Fanfics (upcoming and old)
Live & Love- Tamora Pierce fanfic that takes place after ROTG. The war's over, but another threat arises. Daine and Numair's trip to the Divine Realms causes her powers to expand in ways never before seen in the mortal world. They return to Corus, only to go to Benton to investigate the mysterious vanishings of people for short periods of time. People that return with no memory of who they are. Alex, a local Benton villager, guides them to the small village.
Opposites Attract- Aang and the gang travel from Ba Sing Se, taking The Earth King to Osha. Here they double their gang, and find Aang a firebending master. Azula is following them from Ba Sing Se, hoping to capture Aang. Leon, Kasia, Lessa, and Daine, the children of King Fallonor and Queen Kyra join the gaang.
Leon, the 18 year old Earthbending eldest son, resents the Osha tradition of the throne going to the eldest daughter, not the oldest son. He thinks of himself as invincible, even though he has things he is good at and things he isn't. He's the only one of the 4 siblings that can be seen by Osha's citizens up close since he's the only one that has nothing to hide about his identity. He has a hippogriff named Remus.
Kasia, the 16 year old Firebending daughter, never stops looking for a way to escape the role of Queen of Osha that has been thrust upon her since birth. She firebending abilites come from her Great-great-great-grandfather on her father's side. Paranoid about the fact that she is firebending Earth Kingdom royalty, she has dedicated her whole life to learning as many weapons as possible. She has a fire dragon named Kayda and a Pygmy Puma namd Kiara.
Lessa, the 14 year old Waterbending daughter, loves taking charge of anything possible, which can cause some arguments between her and Kasia. Her Waterbending abilities come from her Great-great-great-grandmother on her father's side. She excels at single sword fighting and archery, two skills her other siblings chose not master. She has a water dragon named Ramoth and a phoenix named Lagrima.
Veralidaine (called Daine for short), the 12 year old Airbending daughter, loves to live life to the fullest, to enjoy the outdoors and to fly over the mountains. Her Airbending abilities come from her Great-great-great-grandfather on her mother's side. Though she can use many different weapons, she never chose to take the time to master any. She has a flying bison named Charanth and a white lamb named Alora.
Never Stopped Loving You- Harry Potter One-shot. Harry's defeated Voldemort, and everyone thinks he's dead. When Ginny hears the news, how will she react?
The Potter Legacy- (name is DEFINATELY going to change) Voldemort is about to defeat Harry and the Order when he sends Hermione away with his and Ginny's twin infant daughters. They are separated, sent to live with Muggles in America- one in West Virginia, one in Californa. They grow up not knowing who they really are, about their parents, or that they have a twin. When their 11th birthday arrives, Aunt Hermione tells them the truth- that they are the only hope the world had of defeating Voldemort! Join the twins as the learn that life isn't what it seems, and about the destiny that is quickly coming upon them. Along the way, they find out more and more about their parents, and the life that they led.
Harry Potter and His Muggle-Born Cousin- (name subject to change) upcoming Harry Potter story that I'm doing with The Phoenix of Dumbledore. Marcus Evans never knew he was different. He thought he was just a normal boy at Pendleton County High School. Wasn't he wrong.
The Choices We Make- Wildfire One-Shot that takes place after Season III Finale. Who was in the car? What I think would have happened if they continued the episode for a few minutes longer.
The Joy of Togetherness- A very short Aari/Acorna fanfic that takes place during Acorna's Triumph by Anne McCaffrey. Very pointless, but I still love it.
You Sustain Me- Henry goes to Vicki late one night. What results. Very graphic. From the show Blood Ties
Love is Life- A Beka/Rosto one-shot that takes place during Beka's first day as a Dog. When Rosto comes to her after her Watch, what does the young Rogue want? From the Tamora Pierce book Beka Cooper: Terrior. Coming soon
I've decided to put up a few of my poems here. If you don't like them, oh well. It's not like you have to read them. lol.
The Flames Of Anger
The whiteness of my anger,
so terrible to see,
is the very thing,
that makes me me.
And though you hate to see it,
it’s part of who I am,
I’m sorry for the pain you feel,
sorry to no end.
Someday this power,
so strong inside of me,
will someday be under my control,
and yes, this pleases me.
Once again the world,
once so beautiful and strong,
will be pulled from the despair,
that’s held it for so long.
Tears of healing,
they rip my heart,
and yet I must shed them,
or you'll head for the stars.
So since I don't want that,
I'll let my tears fall free,
for maybe if they kill me,
they will leave you be.
