Disclaimer: I don't claim to have any ownership or legal rights to the universes, characters, or situations my stories are derived from. I merely write to express my love for certain characters and because the concepts others have dreamed of have also captivated my imagination.
To my regular readers: I'm so glad you people like my work enough to favorite and/or follow me, my stories, or both. In lieu of reviews, which are nice but not always easily formulated, I'd like to know what it is about my stories that attracted you enough to favorite them/me. Please write to me if so inclined.
The thing is, I enjoy writing stories and I like that others like them, but I need a bit more conversation than I've been getting. Conversation, whether in the form of reviews or personal notes, is what makes the time it takes to type, edit, and publish worthwhile. I hope to hear from some of you. Perhaps I will make more friends.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you'll continue to do so as long as I continue to write.
I love stories, from folklore to mythology to novels, and I like learning about other people and different cultures.
I'm fascinated with pythons and cheetahs and am a strong believer in the value and importance of literacy. Some genres I favor are fantasy, historical fiction, and drama. I like watching plays, especially musicals, and enjoy cute, feel-good cartoons.
I hate intolerance and censorship, even if I don't necessarily agree with what's being said or believed. I think it's paramount that everyone should be able to express themselves in their own way so long as I can avoid what I find distasteful or offensive.
I'm idealistic and place a high value on intelligence. I fear confrontation and quarreling and am more apt to write a letter if I have a problem with someone than to talk face-to-face. It's just as well, since I'm rather blunt verbally. I can be uncertain and insecure about my opinions if I'm not comfortable disagreeing with you, and that goes back to my hatred of fights. Generally, I'm mellow, content, easy-going, and relaxed, though I can also have an explosive temper and I never forget a wrong, even if I may still be able to be civil. People have also called me stubborn. I have no clue where they get that idea.
A Note About the Star Wars EU
I have long held the belief that the Star Wars EU is glorified fanfiction. With LucasFilm officially announcing that the EU is not canon, my idea is thus validated. Eps I-VI and "Clone Wars" are canon, of course, but that was always agreeable to me. While I'm still happy to incorporate things from the EU into my own fanon about the characters I love, I no longer need to concern myself with what other fans may view as contradictory. LucasFilm is making a new start with Rebels, and subsequent books, comics, and games must now conform to one established timeline. Here's hoping for more organization, plausibility, and continuity in future.
P.S. I've mostly pulled away from the Star Wars fandom, particularly the new era. I still like the legacy stuff that Lucas did, but since I don't keep up with the new canon, I don't really call myself a fan anymore. If I get inspired to write in the old continuity or an AU derived from it, I still will. But for now, I'm done.
