Author has written 5 stories for Newsies, American Gods, A Cinderella Story, and 10 Things I Hate About You.
Hi, my name is peculiarjuliar. There was a point in time that I was infatuated with the 1992 Disney musical, Newsies. Looking back, I think I was more in love with baby Christian Bale and David Moscow. Anyway, there are some random Newsie fics I've written on here; be grateful though, I deleted the really weird ones!
One of my goals is to write a Batman Begins/Dark Knight story. I feel very intimidated by the idea of recreating Gotham City, so I don't know how long before I gather the guts to try such a fic. I'd also like to write a Firefly chapter fic about how Zoe and Wash met/fell in love.
~~~ Stories ~~~
Our Tristran: This one-shot attacked me and took over my hand and wrote itself. It's based of the movie, not the book (even though the movie didn't have a category so I put it in the book's author's category) and is the work I am most pleased with (at the moment). SEE THE MOVIE and then READ THIS!
10 Things I Hate About You:
A Tale of Two Patricks: (title subject to change, though it is kind of growing on me) This fic retells the story we all love, this time focusing more on Patrick. Kat has a little sister; what if Patrick has a little sister, too? We've all seen how Kat deals with Bianca; what kind of brother is Patrick to Ashlee? The Stratford home has been viewed by thousands; what is Verona-Family Life like? I have a lot of plans and ideas for this story, and I'm really excited about writing it. I want to keep all original relationship the same, though how the characters reach those points will probably be different at times.
Who Can Hear a Lousy Whistle Blow?: This is my latest chapter fic that I'm writing. It's fun to write and hopefully fun to read. Modern-day humorous tale of one girl's experiences at a summer music camp -- dealing with various newsie cliques, musical endeavors, and perhaps a little romance. JackOC. SkittsOC. MushOC. Everybody-elseOC.
Little Boy Blue (LBB): My first completed chapter fanfiction. It is a tad melodramatic and very much a first attempt at a fanfic. I hope to someday redo it and make it presentable. For now, you can try reading it if you'd like, but be prepared for a depressing tale. DavidOC.
Six Seconds: This is a random attack of my weird mind. Newsie Lifeguards. I have no clue where this came from, except that I rather like it. Modern-day. MushOC.
Raise Your Voice:
Sunrise: My muse has begun taking me out of the realm of Newsies and into the uncharted territory of other movies (imagine that). This is my first songfic, and is from Terri's POV on the roof (after Jay gets drunk and passes out).
A Cinderella Story:
Sushi and Donuts: Another one-shot...apparently I'm suffering from an acute case of procrastination! This is dedicated to a slightly smarter version of Austin Ames. :P
Now, about me -- as if you care! lol...
