Hello, Fellow Tale-Spinners, I am Princess of Words.
I am an author who tries to write stories that reflect the truth of the Greatest Story. I am a lover of heroes, good vs evil, and fairy tales, a Hufflepuff, an introvert who likes people, imaginative, a bookworm, and, most importantly, a Christian. In my stories I attempt to, while including instances of evil (it's rather difficult to have villains without them), never confuse right and wrong or portray bad as good.
Some of the story types I most enjoy include: stories that tell us what the secondary characters were doing, AUs that give readers the happy ending that the source material denied them, crossovers where both stories are part of the same world, soulmate AUs, reading the book/watching the movie, and the type of AU where the setting is completely different but the characters relationships and characteristics are still very similar. I do often enjoy AUs, but the changes to cannon have to be intentional; inaccuracies often nag at me.

A few favorite quotes:
“Compromise where you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say 'No, you move.’” –Peggy Carter, Captain America: Civil War
“Since it is so likely children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.” –C.S. Lewis
“There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.” –Sam Gamgee, The Two Towers
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." - 2 Timothy 1:7
Below are details on what you can expect from me in certain fandoms:
Marvel Cinematic Universe:
Favorite characters: Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Loki, Natasha Romanoff, and Peggy Carter.
Second favorite characters: Pepper Potts, Phil Coulson, Melinda May, Daisy Johnson, Nick Fury, Maria Hill, T’Challa, and the Barton family.
Favorite couples: Steve x Peggy, Tony x Pepper, Phil x Melinda
Other notes: This is definitely the primary fandom I spend my time in. In general, I follow cannon pairings if they exist. If a character doesn’t have a significant other, though, I’ll pick my favorite ship for them, which can vary from time to time. As I said above, I like soulmate AUs, but in this category in particular I also like to write platonic soulmate AUs because there are so many good friendships as well as couples! I fall on Team Cap’s side but still love the characters on Team Ironman, and I really like post-Civil War stories where everyone makes up and is friends again. I love Steve and Peggy and was so glad Endgame gave them a happy ending. I enjoy stories that show more detail on what happened then, and have also found myself a fan of the idea I’ve seen that some of the Marvel characters are Steve’s decedents.
The Queen's Thief:
I love stories that explore the depths of Eugenides and Irene's relationship in all its facets. I also love Costis and his honest, determined loyalty. Most of the fics I read for this fandom fall into these categories, but I really like just about every character in these books (well, except Nahuseresh).
Favorite characters: Harry, Hermione, Lupin, Neville, Professor McGonagall, and Dumbledore.
Other characters I really like: Luna, Ginny, Tonks, Fleur, and Percy.
Other notes: Cursed Child is not cannon in my stories. Sometimes I ship Neville and Luna together because that’s who I imagined them ending up with, and sometimes I follow the official ships. I believe that Lavender Brown lived because she was still moving last time we saw her (in the books). A couple common(ish) story types I enjoy include Dudley and Harry making up, what Percy’s thought process in the later books was, Minerva and Severus friendship, and the stories of what all the other characters were doing while the Trio was horcrux hunting.
I really like Susan and stories about her after Last Battle, and I believe she did find her way to Aslan’s country in the end. I enjoyed the love story with her and Caspian in the movie, but I also enjoy Caspian’s relationship with Ramandu’s Daughter in the books. I like exploring Shasta and Aravis’s relationship, and sometimes also ship Jill and Eustace.
I love these books! Eilowny is one of my favorite characters ever, and she and Taran are one of my favorite couples. Besides stories featuring them, I like things that address Archen's point of view and backstory as well as pieces that give us more insight into Gwydion.
The movie was terrible; I can only hope that sometime in their endless remakes Disney will create a good adaptation of this.
Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit:
While Lord of the Rings is one of my favorite books and movies, somehow I don’t really get interested in fanfiction for it. There are a couple pieces I like from these categories, but it isn’t my go-to.
Favorite Characters: Luke, Obi Wan, Leia, Han, R2-D2, C-3PO
I love the originals, think Rogue One was quite good, and think the only good things in the prequels were Obi Wan and Episode One Padme. I like Episode Seven fine, think parts of Eight were good (Rey and Ben, final battle) and others were bad (Finn and Rose, Poe’s mutiny), and like Episode Nine. I very much like stories with force-ghosts talking to the younger generations.
Sue Thomas F.B.Eye:
I love this show, but why did they have to end it like that? They’d been building Jack and Sue’s relationship from the first episode and left it hanging! Oh well, that’s what fanfiction is for. Besides being a major Jack and Sue shipper, I also like Bobby and Darcy, which I think puts me in the minority. After he stops being rude, I love Myles and find him quite funny and a little relatable.
My main interest in this series is in crossovers. I think it is very interesting to see how other stories’ heroes, particularly heroes from non-dystopian works, react to living in such a world.
