Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Thor.
So this is me...GuilelessAesthete. I was Aramair but I changed my Pen Name. I'm allowed to do that, right? Well, I did it anyway.
So I write Harry Potter fanfictions. But I also write a metric poop-ton of other stuff, most of it is original work. But for all intents and purposes, this account is probably only going to be for my Harry Potter stories. My favorite character is Sirius Black (duh), but I kinda also like Malfoy...maybe that'll come into my stories...hmmm
I'm going to put my disclaimer here so i don't have to start every chapter I write with it:
I DON'T OWN HARRY POTTER (I wish...). I DO NOT OWN THE CHARACTERS, THE WORLD, THE PLACES, THE SPELLS. THE ONLY THINGS I OWN ARE THE SITUATIONS (because I highly doubt most of the things that happen to my characters, especially in the Sirius Black school days part, actually happened to the characters) AND MY MAIN CHARACTER. EVERYTHING ELSE I OWE TO THE WONDERFUL J.K. ROWLING.
Okay I got it out of the way. So don't sue me!
I also am in the process of writing some Lord of the Rings fanfictions. It's just the one for now, and it's an Eomer story. Even though Eomer is not necessarily my favorite character in the series (that title goes to Aragorn, and he's sadly taken and it's no fun putting words into a character's mouth that isn't my own), I still think he's awesome and I am really enjoying this series I'm working on. I'm considering a prequel in the future (but no promises) that might be a Boromir fiction.
I'm going to put this disclaimer here too:
I DO NOT OWN LORD OF THE RINGS! The rights to anything relating to the lore belongs to the wonderfully talented Prof. Tolkien and his family. I DO NOT OWN ANY OF THE CHARACTERS (but I own some of the things that they say). ALL OF THE DESCRIPTIONS OF CLOTHING AND OTHER VISUALS BELONG TO NEW LINE CINEMA AND PETER JACKSON. ALL DIALOGUE PULLED FROM THE MOVIES BELONGS TO PETER JACKSON, FRAN WALSH, AND PHILLIPA BOYENS. THE ONLY THING THAT I OWN IS MY MAIN CHARACTER.
There, now that THAT is out of the way, I can write without feeling like I've broken some cardinal law. So go enjoy my stories.

2. You have the last chapters of a story done before even thinking of the characters names. (nope. Characters first, story second)
3. You often imagine your books becoming movies. (doesn't every writer?)
4. Spell check is your best friend. (you have no idea...)
5. You give even the smallest of characters a huge background. (and usually some twisted way to become relevant later to justify all the thought I put in)
6. You hesitate before killing of one of your favorite characters. (nope, I'm sort of a psychopath when it comes to that; if they have to go, then they have to go)
7. You smile really big when your gonna finally write a character love scene. (actually the battles are a lot of fun; and death scenes are amusing)
8. Every time you read something, you make your own story of the same thing. (not really. Maybe I'll be inspired and use something that the author did)
9. You'll spend an hour trying to find one word cause you won't dare use a synonym. (F that. I'm going to say what I want, just to get the words on the page. That's what revision is for)
10. Not being able to write is like not being able to pee to you... you just can't hold it in for so long. (napkins, my friends, napkins)
11. You write so fast, you leave out words in a sentence. (or whole clauses)
12. You have to tell at least one person your whole story before it's even written. (usually my writing buddy that keeps me grounded)

14. You laugh at jokes you wrote yourself. (and get mad at myself for writing tension between people who won't do what I want them to do)

17. You talk to yourself... constantly. (said the crazy...but yes)
18. You forget what day it is when you're writing. (It is perpetually Saturday in my little world; I will write, "On Saturday I did... Three days later, on Saturday)
19. When you have to write some sort of story in class, you get carried away.
20. You would rather die than use words like 'good' or 'nice' and etc. (only when I can use other words)
21. You put off the last chapter of a story simply because you don't want it to end. (nope. I sometimes write the end first, or later scenes because I just have to get the words down before I lose them)
22. You start to cry when writing about a death or other depressing event you knew was coming, and you are the one writing it. (yes. Oh God yes)
23. When on a roll, you will ignore hunger, sleepiness, or the urge to pee until you run out of ideas. (and other people)
24. If a story, movie, show, etc. finishes without closure, you have a powerful need to write a suitable ending. (That's what this site is for)
