About my Writing

No matter the fandom I’m writing, my style is pretty much the same. I tend towards oneshots (mainly because the only time I’ve ever actually finished a chapter fic is during NaNoWriMo, and it’s of dubitable quality), and most of my writing is either dealing with 1) a thought I had, which morphs into some introspective!fic; 2) some lovely, angsty internal monologues; 3) me playing around with ships because I have yet to find a ship that actually squicks me; or 4) a prompt/or request. I take requests from anybody, but you should probably make sure that you like my style of writing first because there are some things I will probably not be so good at. However, if there’s something you want me to write, feel free to PM me, e-mail me at rocket_girl_2@yahoo.com, or comment on this post at my LJ. I’ll try to be timely about handling it but, well, you never know. :)

Works No Longer in Progress (alphabetic by title):

Escape (Maximum Ride) – Pre-series. The flock is stuck in the School, and they want to get out. A quick note on this; I find it funny that so many people liked it, because of everything I posted, this feels the worst. Yes, I have read some of my old stuff and holy cow was it ever awful and I am very sorry if you read it too, etc., etc. However, Escape was never all that fun for me to write, nor did I feel I was putting anything worth reading into it…yet it remains my most popular fic. Go figure.

New World (Maximum Ride) -Ms. Janssen’s by-half plan has succeeded and Omega has grown old in the world of his creation. He talks about how he was made into the person that he is, and what he went through to create the perfect world of Itexicon’s imagination.

Taken Away (Artemis Fowl) - Post-TOD, Opal's thoughts as she is in prison. What, it's probably going to get Joss'd anyways!

Anything labeled “one-shot” or “complete” (Various Fandoms) -Are just that, one-shots. That are complete. It amazes me how many people ask me to continue with them once I’ve already said it was a one-shot. And complete. So unless I say otherwise (like with the Love series), it will not be continued.

Most of my one-shots are 1-3K long, though some of them seem to expand as I type them and are a bit longer than that.

My Specialties/favorite ships (by fandom):

Artemis Fowl – Crazy!Opal fic; A/H angst.

Anything by Margaret Atwood – Introspective philosophical fic; Jimmy/Crake (Oryx & Crake)

Castle – Castle/Beckett UST. Humorous angst. Fluffy fluff. Castle/Beckett, Castle/Ryan, Ryan/Esposito

Death Note – Introspective fics about morality, how to live, et al. Mello/Matt, Mello/Near, L/Light. Or just Mello.

Firefly – Character exploration. River/Simon, Simon/Mal, Mal/Inara.

Harry Potter – Weird ships—too many of them to name. Marauders slash or Marauders/Lily fic. Innuendos about broomsticks and wands, et al.

Maximum Ride – Jax. Whitecoat fic. Whitecoat slash. Max-goes-crazy, Fang-is-narcissistic, Iggy-is depressed, Nudge-has-a-low-self-esteem, Gazzy-does-drugs, Angel-is-a-party-girl sorts of futuristic AU.

Wicked – Bookverse. Musings on the nature of life and magic and all other philosophical things. Otherwise, Gelphie or Liir/Trism


Find Me

I was carino over at the MR UK forums, on MX and at FG, but I don't spend much times on forums anymore.

If you're thinking writing, I can be found as carino at JulNoWriMo, NaNoWriMo, Screnzy, and Fictionpress.

And, of course, there's Twitter and LiveJournal.

E-mail listed up above; feel free to PM me if you'd rather do that. I love meeting people and I'm actually quite talkative once you get to know me.
