Author has written 10 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Highlander, and Harry Potter.
NEWS: Hello lovely readers! I've had a few people asking for my whereabouts and - more importantly - about updates for the WIPs I've left unattended for a while. I'm deeply sorry to say that I don't see me writing HP in the near future. After the birth of my son I suffered from a year of horrible writer's block. Then I finally got on my writing feet again, but I went to another fandom. I had long been drawn to slash and discovered my OTP in Merlin/Arthur from BBC's TV show Merlin.
If you are interested you can find the stories I've written here:
Hi. My name is Zaira.
In real life I'm a lawyer, specializing on family law. In my spare time I'm a fanfiction writer.
I've loved writing since childhood, and often wrote stories about my favourite characters of books or TV-shows. So you could say I started writing fanfiction before I knew there was something like that, or that people could publish their work on the Net and others would be interested to read it. I mostly wrote for myself because I wanted another, better ending, a different turn, or simply a story not yet to be finished at all.
I always loved reading stories, loved walking through them along with the characters, and in writing what I later found out was fanfiction I could create new paths for them. Erasing what I hated. Continueing what I liked. Honestly, that's the only power I'm interested in having. ;-)
Check out this wonderful FAN ART for The Promise and The Heart's Desire and leave the awesome artists some love:
DISCLAIMER: I write fanfiction. This means that (most of) the characters don't belong to me. They are the intellectual property of their creators. What belongs to me, are the plot and the words. They are my intellectual property. I make absolutely no money with writing these stories. I do it for the fun and the feedback. So it would be lovely if you give some! :)
Plagiarism: "The use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work."
Yes, you can plagiarise the work of a fanfiction author. No, we don't all steal from the original authors, because we don't claim their work as our own! So, please don't do it. Writing a story is giving a piece of yourself. Seeing someone take it and violate it and carelessly take credit for your effort is really hurtful. It happened to me, and I felt like shit. It nearly put me off writing and posting. I'm glad there were so many people who gave their support and encouragement. Thank you for that!
Distribution: Please do not post my stories somewhere else on your own accord! You can link to this site if you want, but please don't reprint.
If you have or know of a site where you would like to see my work posted, please contact me and ask if I'm okay with it first. Yes, even if you post under my penname (anything else would be plagiarism). I simply would like to decide myself where and how my story is made accessible. The same goes for translations. It's great if you like my stories, but please keep in mind that they are still my property. Thank you! :)
