Author has written 11 stories for Harry Potter, and Greek.
Once upon a time there was a girl.
When she was little she read books like The Baby-Sitter's Club, and then Sweet Valley. It was with Sweet Valley that she discovered other fans online who wrote their own stories about their favorite characters. She didn't feel inspired to write her own stories, however, until she was 13.
When she was 13, she discovered the magical world of Hogwarts and Harry Potter. She discovered Fiction Alley and its forums, and from there made friends on her OTP, the HMS Pumpkin Pie (also known as Harmony). This wasn't to be her only ship, however. By the time she was 19, and the last book of the series was published, she had discovered that she enjoyed not only Harry/Hermione, but also Neville/Ginny, Ron/Luna, Draco/Ginny, Harry/Luna, Zacharias/Ginny, Neville/Cho, and numerous other pairings, and even would occasionally read a Ron/Hermione fic (particularly if it included Harry/Luna).
When she joined HP fandom, she not only read fanfiction but also got into writing it. Most of that can be found here, but there are a few drabbles that can only be found on her fic journal. (http://nicfics.livejournal.com/)
At the conclusion of the Harry Potter book series, this girl was introduced to another book series by a couple of her fellow H/Hr shippers. She resisted at first, but while one of them was not around one evening, she asked the other to send her the available books—of the four that were to be in the series, only two had then been released, with the third coming in the next couple months and the fourth the next year.
It was a while before she actively got into the new book series's fandom, a transition of almost an entire year. She continued reading Harry Potter fic and enjoying the movies that had been released. And then people she went to university with started buzzing about a different book series…the same one her fandom friends had introduced her to months ago. She started reading one of the friends' fic for that series, her first in that fandom. She joined some fan livejournal communities, particularly the largest one for the main canon ship. The last book was released, with much controversy over the subject matter. The movie of the first book was filmed and set to be released, and even got moved up when the 6th Harry Potter movie was pushed back to the following summer.
She followed the promotion for the new fandom's movie, and went to see it on opening night. In the weeks that followed, she watched the international promotion, and soon realized she was a fan of more than just the books or the movie, but of the lead actors as well. She even realized, having been a fan of the lead trio of actors in Harry Potter and even being interested in whether or not two of them were possibly more than friends, that the same thing could be happening to her again.
Because you see, this girl is a bit of a hopeless romantic, a very passionate shipper. Fictional characters, real people? She doesn't discriminate. Eventually she found herself inspired by the very real people she had become a fan of, and she wrote stories about them (some completely fictional and others based on real events but of course, her version of what happened). She made new friends and discovered some old ones shared her new interests. She also discovered that some old friends did not share all her new appreciations, but that was okay as long as that topic wasn't discussed between them.
She remains, of course, a shipper of all of the above mentioned pairings, real people or fictional. After all, that "new" fandom's last movie was only released in November 2012. She still reads fanfiction for her book OTP, and reads/writes stories for her RL ship. She is an avid fan of Doctor Who, now, and as cute as Amy and Rory were thinks that Amy/Eleven would've been nice as well. (Oh, and she ships their actors, too.)
