I have been an avid reader, and half-secret writer, for most of my life.
I decided to join this site when I realised how many good stories it houses. My obsession with BBC Merlin, of course, is what led me here.
In the future, I may do a "reveal" of my own and actually post some of my own writings here. However, as of yet, I have not the faintest belief that I would escape the pyre unscathed, and so I remain a reader and reviewer for the moment, until such time as my magical talents (please read that with heavy irony) are ready for the world to judge. :)
Update (Dec 2020): I am now working on a story that I believe shows some promise. The working title is The Empathetic Warlock, and it will explore Merlin's understanding of, and compassion towards, animals, in a way (and/or to a degree) that I think is rare, if even existent, in fics. Goodness knows I have been trying to find a story like it for months! In the end I decided I'd just have to write it myself!
I am very excited about it. So far I have written a few thousand words; it will not be a huge work, but medium-sized. It will be posted here as soon as it is completed (I will never post unfinished stories, for all the obvious reasons.)
So, if you like animals, stay tuned! :)
