Author has written 40 stories for Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, Glee, and NCIS.
Well let's see... I haven't really been on here, or anywhere, for the last few months. I had a FANTASTIC summer. This autumn wasn't quite as fantastic but I had some good holidays.
A bit about me: You can call me Shiloh. I'm 23, nearly 24, and the youngest of four. I am the classic baby of the family.
I haven't been writing fanfiction really the last year or two. Life has sort of gotten in the way and I've just not been as interested. I still read it though! I am working on an original, fantasy universe I hope to set at least two books in. My dream is to be the next Tolkien. Ha. We'll see. When I get some more worked out maybe I'll post it on here and let you all have a look.
Currently fangirling over The Hobbit films. I saw the second one over the hols and OHEMGEE I loved it. Aidan Turner as Kili is absolutely adorable and I loved Richard Armitage before but now I could just die for him. He's perfect as Thorin! After seeing The Desolation of Smaug I went and watched the first Hobbit film and the LotR trilogy - just couldn't get enough!
Also totally in love with BBC's Sherlock. The new series is amazing! And Doctor Who. I totally cried my eyes out watching the Christmas special and can't wait to see series 8 begin.
I think I covered all my favorites in film and television. I generally prefer television over films, as my Netflix queue will attest to, and usually only watch movies at the cinema. That doesn't stop me from collecting them though!
Favorite Books: Hard to narrow down! Pride & Prejudice is a staple in anyone's fave list, yes? My own copy is worn and dogeared, certainly. Also, love Tolkien, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hollow Kingdom Trilogy and, of course, HARRY POTTER. I am a HUGE fan of Harry Potter. I read A LOT of fantasy and mysteries. Quite fond of The Haunted Bookshop mysteries and Aurora Teagarden.
Things I Love: Chocolate, blankets, music, my kitten (Jacquelyn Rose, affectionately called Jackie), pillows, Tigger, coffee and/or tea, slippers, caridgans lip balm, blue, calendars, Van Gogh, diamonds, curls, pens, jeans, flowery scents, candles, journals/notebooks, angels, hats, scarves, word games.
Note: On journals/notebooks - not kidding. I have TONS of them. Everything from cheap $5 ones to a hand tooled Italian leather one I paid a disturbing amount of money on.
Things I Hate: Twilight. Ugh. I just - no. I hate it. So much.
Currently: Planning on actually going to college. GASP. What? You never went? No. I didn't. Well, for like two minutes I did. I get bored really easily with things and unless something is really interesting, I move on pretty fast. It's a terrible weakness of mine. We'll see what happens. Also - I have very strong opinions concerning education and the ridiculous value Americans place on the importance of a 4 year institution and I won't get into it because either you won't care or I'll piss someone off.
Lastly: I don't know if I'll actually be writing more fanfiction. Like I said above, I'm working on an original thing. So maybe watch for that sometime in the future. In the meantime...
So long and enjoy the crumpets.
