Author has written 9 stories for Twilight, Immortals, Tamora Pierce, Shakespeare, Beka Cooper series, Labyrinth, and Gordan Korman.
Since my old profile simply screamed 'preteen angst', I've decided to re-write it since I'm getting back into writing again. So what to say about myself? Well at the time of writing this, I am 17- soon to be 18. I am a seniorin high school and I live in the Southeastern part of the U.S. I am in a number of clubs, the main ones being writing club and Speech&Debate. Writing club is relevant because...well, you get the point. S&D is important because It takes up a hug chunk of my free time. I am currently captain of Lincoln Douglass debate, something that I hope to make permanent. Speaking of time consuming things, I am also taking a million classes and working on costuming and senior project. So dont be surprised if I am finicky and unreliable. I've decided to take a page out of my favorite ff author's book and not post the first chapter until the last chapter is complete. I imagine then I'll post once or twice a week. But in between stories...there may be a waiting period.
About my writing, you should know that my first love is role playing. I started on Gaia online years ago, and delight in it up to this day. In fact, the fic "Nightfurious" which I plan on posting later comes from a HTTYD roleplay I'm participating in. That is where I really write. I'm better at short stories and oneshots because I have trouble committing to long term projects (another way of saying lazy) but I'm trying to correct that. I have at least two multiple chapter fics planed, one already started and mapped out. I also write a lot of competition style essays for writing club, but not a lot of fiction just for myself. I've decided to get back into writing fanfiction, because I was noticing a decreased lack of good stories in certain areas where I wanted them. Thats pretty much the only reason.
Lets also address the types of fiction I read and write. I typically don't read pre-story stuff unless it's really interesting. Same with writing, unless an idea strikes me. I will read and write post movie stuff, but never EVER write about children or next generation. I HATE that stuff. No real reason to, but I do. I'm most comfortable with other characters POV's (during and after the movie) and with plot holes and time lines, as well as unresolved issues. Typically I write in 3rd, but I can do 1st. I do write and read AU's, but I prefer the kind where one single event changes the course of the original story, rather than a complete universe or situational change. I've done modern retelling, like with my Shakespeare fic, but not often. I don't usually care for them.
Hey, guess what? I got a deviantart! I'll be posting fics haphazardly there, rather than in their final, chronological order here, so if you ever want a preview... Also, my art (weaving and crafts) can be seen there. I warn you, there isn't much to look at. Link Here: Iconicas-Panic
I have a Beauty and the Beast fic in the works, but I'm having trouble pinning down Belle. I've also got a fair amount of The Little Mermaid ideas, but Eric is the only one who seems t be coming to me, and I'm not getting him right either.
I adore Aladdin, Mulan, Pocahontas, and the Aristocats, but I don't see myself doing any fics for them. No reason too, everything worked out pretty well in there. Possibly an Aladdin, if only because the main page is so clogged with crap from the TV show.
I absolutely adore How to Train your Dragon, but my only fic from that may be the one I write from Toothless's POV. Quite frankly, some amazing stories have already been written about mostly what I want to say. Mainly in Hitchups, by The Antic Repartee and in The Dragon Journals by Contraltissimo. Edit: Never mind, I'm into HTTYD one shots. Majorly.
I love Harry Potter, of course, but I seriously doubt I'll ever write anything. The only HP stuff I've ever written were self insertion (which I would never subject to the eyes of other readers, it is purely for my own enjoyment) and I wouldn't want to clog the portal with more crap then has already been written. Besides, you could compare next to Loten's amazingness? If I ever do write, it would most likely be a fic about one of her fics.(SSxHG)
Twilight - well, lets talk. I've already admitted I was an angsty preeteen, so yeah, I read Twilight, and all subsequent books. I don't really care for the genre anymore, but I'm not going to hate it just because everyone else does. Who am I to judge cliche romances? I write them all the time. A friend described the series to me: "It's like marriage. First you have the honeymoon stage where everything is amazing. Them you wake up and actually read the book again." So I'm going with this. I will most likely never write anymore Twilight fiction in my life. But I will not take down anything I've written before, because I'm not ashamed of it. Also, twilight got me interested in writing fanfiction for the first time in my entire life, and that is important.
Tenth Kingdom I fucking love this move. But you know what I love more? The fics written on Kingdompress by A.N.D. I've tried contacting this person so many times, but nothing comes of it. She/he wrote the most wonderful books about the series, I will never want to hold up my melting candle to that roaring fire.
Labyrinth - this one's new. I recently re-watched the 80's movie of glittery, confusing amazingness. Looking at how cheesy it was, I immediately thought to myself, the fanfiction for this is either really shitty, r really amazing. Lo and behold, it is beautiful. There are a few things Id like to add to it, but just a few.
Works in Progress:
At this moment I'm working on a Labrynth fic.
A Crystal at the Door, a Goblin in the Bed
Post-Labyrinth fic. Sarah is doing an excellent job of avoiding him. It doesn't help that his own goblins have turned against him. But then, Sarah has always inspired loyalty in even the darkest of places. J/S. Explores Sarah's relationship with the goblins, and the effect this has on Jareth.
This is something where I don't want to get into a superly complicated explanation of how things are working between Jareth and Sarah or what out of the Lab means for them, though I'm finding that some of that is unavoidable in order for anything to make sense, but mostly I want to look at the way the goblins interact with and view Sarah and how she does with them. It seems important. I expect this one to be a lot longer than my usual fics, at least three maybe four chapters, plus a lot of fluffy drabbles after that.
Moonrise Kingdom Fic
Currently working on an outline for how the rest of the gang's summers go. No title, just plot points right now. I'm going to finish up the Lab fic first and wait till I get Moonrise on DVD for Christmas so that I know what the hell I'm talking about. Also, time consumption. There's that.
Gift of The Night Fury Drabbles
GotNF told in a series of drabbles from different points of veiw.
Having a lot of fun with this since I saw the short. Started off with one about Stoick until it grew. Not usual for me because, in general, I usually hate drabbles. Writing them has been intersting.
Update: I'm pretty sure I lost these when my computer crashed. I might have them in an email I sent to a friend...
A Thing for Brunettes
After Eugene is healed, what happens? Ensues is a tale of insecurity, stairs, and a repeat of the trip they had just made – only this time with cowlicks.
Status: Eventual. Not really even in sight.
Happily ever after doesn’t just happen, not even for Belle and her new-found love, the Beast. Or is it Adam? Follow his gradual acclimatization back to human and how he and Belle handle the changes to cultivate their romance into the blooming rose of a relationship.
Status: Still in the outlining and note taking phase. Not timeline yet
“I am Nghhst. We are solitary by nature, unwilling to trust and quick to act. Mans are deadly things. Then again, I have never seen one so small or quiet. Rather than brandishing a large stick and bellowing, this one mewed to himself in the gravelly voice of a hatchling.” HTTYD, Toothless style.
Status: since this is and RP, I probably wont post for some months until I've built up enough posts to give readers continual updates. Depends on both mine and my partners schedule, but not for some months to come.
Rapunzel has no problem accepting a father figure into her life, but what about the confused feelings she gets around her real mom? Can she ever truly accept the Queen in place of Gothel, or will she always stumble over the word ‘mother’? Inspired by moonlitrose369’s story ‘Join the Club’.
Status: Just barely an idea. Still hashing it out. I want this to got further than a oneshot like I originally planned, so my initial date of February has been canceled.
Forget Me Nots
A multiple chapter fic showing how Rapunzel affected the lives of everyone in the city that day. From dancing to drawing, the lost princess touched more lives in one day than most do in an entire lifetime.
Status: Just an idea, wont bother working on it for months to come.
Gothel is just a regular old hag…erm…lady, right? So how does one such lady put the Stabbington Brothers in Concussionland? The story of what happens if Gothel’s plan doesn’t work. AU
Status: Outline is started, don't know when I'll get too it.
Update: Lost the outline in a comp crash.
Longing for Lionfish
The castle has to deal with a lifetime of fishless dinners, since Ariel absolutely refuses to have seafood served anywhere near them. Being a coastal castle, how to Eric, Chef Louis, and Ariel herself deal with this.
Status: WIP, first draft sent off but I anticipate at least 5 drafts.
When Ariel finally gets out of the waters, she discovers that her skin dries up and becomes terribly tight. The story of what happens when raisin toes seem natural.
Status: Idea stage
Where Would We Walk
Astronauts lose bone mass in space because of the difference in gravity. So what would happen if you lived underwater your whole life? The story of how Ariel gives up everything she’s ever known for a pair of legs that keep breaking
Status: Still just an idea. Pretty low on priority list.
Vladamir and the Ginger Girlscouts
Status: There's no plot or description. I think you can guess.
I love to be contacted, reviewed, etc. Seeing something personal in my inbox is a special part of my day, so feel free to contact me with anything. I especially loooove prompts, as long as they are about a genre I know.
Email: Cadenk (at) BellSouth (dot) net
Or just contact me through FF - I'll get it almost immediately.
Also, my DA for fandoms and the really crappy artwork I attempt is here.
My offical one for my costuming is here.
