Author has written 6 stories for Robin Hood BBC, Torchwood, and Doctor Who.
Ello! I'm Emelye, of Michigan, USA. Writing is my favorite outlet, but I'm ashamed to say that I'm not very accomplished. This site seemed perfect for constructive criticism, so I'm going to give it a go! Any pointers and ideas are highly welcome!
I am an unashamed BBC America addict, and in love (madly!) with Robin Hood, Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Primeval.
My favorite ships are:
Robin Hood: Robin/Marian, Will/Djaq, Much/Eve, Allan/Djaq, Much/Marian, Will/Allan
Doctor Who: 10/Martha, 10/OC, 11/OC
Torchwood: Jack/Tosh, Ianto/Tosh, Gwen/Owen, Owen/Tosh, Jack/Gwen
Primeval: Nick/Claudia, Abby/Connor
I have quite a few stories going, and none of them are going very fast. I just can't seem to focus on one at a time, a dilemma I do hope you will sympathize with, if not understand. My stories that are in-progress are:
Eyes of Forest Green (Robin Hood BBC): This one is somewhat on hold at present, because I'm having severe writers block with this idea. I think my plot bunnies have wandered off...
Every Step Seems Two (Torchwood): A girl from another world falls through the rift, after losing her brother and lover, and gets wrapped up in Torchwood. Can she overcome her past?
The Curious Adventures of Molly Goodwin (Doctor Who): Long-time companion Molly Goodwin gets wrong-footed when the tenth Doctor she knows and love regenerates. (Birthday present for my sister, Elizabeth (pico113))
And a couple more stories to come!
Hey, I found an amazing tool! A Mary Sue Litmus Test! I'm in the process of testing all my OCs for their level of Mary Sue-ishness.
Miss Emelye's Rules for Writing
The Jane Austen Rule: Thou shalt not introduce thine romantic hero until the chapter that is the third in thine story!
The Falling in Love Rule: The best point to maketh thine characters realize their love for one another is near the place that is the middle of thine tale. As such, the best place in thine story for thine characters to confess their mutual love is near the end. In this way, your readers desireth to see thine characters admit their love, and this giveth them a reason to keep reading thine story.
The Point of View Rule: Thou shalt not change points of view in one scene to showeth how each character reacteth to every thing that hast happened. Overlapping point of view changes are pertmittedeth. Otherwise, thou hast crossed the line, buster...eth.
The Coincidence Rule: When thine story hath many, many, many coincidences, thine story just might sucketh. None of thine readers with believeth thine tale anymore.
