Am I around? Probably not for a while. Sorry.
About Me... with an interlude about SPAG.
Well, let's see... I enjoy writing (obviously), reading good books, fencing and photography. I am a humongous advocator of constructive criticism (NOT flames-they're just plain nasty!) and because I really love getting it, I tend to dish it out a lot too. If I ever come across as harsh in a review, please know that I don't mean to. It's hard to inject big grins, silly voices, general lightheartedness and reassurance into a piece of typed writing. :S
However, I do like fics with good SPAG. (I've been spending far too much time around a friend who's obsessed with that sort of thing.) So although I don't beta, I'm happy to help with bits and pieces. Send me stuff! I don't bite- promise. :D
My little sister Mignonnette now has an account here. If you review her stuff (when/if she gets anything up), please be very very nice, as she's really very little and just wants to do what she sees her big sis doing half the time! I think it's pretty darned unfair that she gets a cooler username than I do, meaning 'sweetie' in French because she IS a little sweetie, but I can't be bothered with the stress that comes with changing your username and not being recognized, etc. etc.
Stuff I'm Working On
Behind Enemy Lines- He had been abandoned twice by the age of ten: first as a child, on the streets of New Orleans. The second time around it was her who abandoned him, but by the time he had found his friend, she had turned into his enemy. ROMY.
A fic tentatively titled 'Courting Disaster', set in an alternate universe where mutants are accepted and North America is a monarchy. It's set in a previous century-esque time period, but I'm not doing old-style language, because, frankly, I'm not all that great at it.
It stars the young Countess Anna-Marie 'Rogue' of Caldecott, only daughter of the late Duke and Duchess of Mississippi, who welcomes her doom to remain unmarried for life because of her mutation. Enter Remy, the newly instated Baron of New Orleans and second son of Marquis Jean-Luc of Louisiana, who happens to catch the young countess by her bare hand after he nearly sends her crashing down a flight of steps. Bound by her father's will to marry the first man she can touch, Rogue must marry Remy, or both she and her guardian (Duke Logan of Alberta) will be prosecuted by the young King Scott for dishonering a dead man's final wish. Facing the possibility of marriage to a swamp rat (and the prospect of an awkward wedding night!) Rogue tries to evade the union in any way she can, causing a load of trouble along the way. AU, Romy, Loro, minor Kurtty friendship/romance.
Reviews make my day. Warm fuzzies welcome, but my favourite reviews include a nice chunk of constructive criticism. I'm always looking to improve!
If you notice that my fics have SPAG issues, (or that my plots are... well, losing the plot!) go bother my beta, mspotts. If it vexes you that i'm very X-Men/Urban Fantasy obsessed, bother her about that, too. It's ALL her fault. (And apart from all the bothering, read her stuff. 'Tis awesome.)
Lastly, this disclaimer applies to all of my fics: I do not own X-Men Evolution, Maximum Ride, Wolverine and the X-Men or Twilight.
Glad that's out of the way.
