Hi and welcome to my world of...pretty words and grammar...punctuation...and romance...
...oh and angst...can't forget that :P
I love fiction. I live it, breathe it, sleep it. Without fiction I would not exist. My main inspiration is the epic Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters. JK Rowling will always be my idol, because she got so many children to start reading and that is such a wonderful thing.
I'm a 20 year old Psychology student and writer. I'm currently working on my first novel so any feedback on any of my fics would be greatly appreciated as it all helps towards improving my writing skills for my novel!
Shameful self-promotion: Follow me on twitter @SorchaODowd (my everyday one) and @VictorianQuill for info on my current writing and fanfiction projects :)
I've also just made a writing livejournal where I've uploaded all my fanfictions and will hopefully share bits and pieces of my everyday writing (if anyone is interested :P); victorianquill.livejournal.com

I solemnly swear to review every story I read, no matter how old the story is or how many reviews it already has.
Reviews are so important to a writer. As well as letting them know whether you're enjoying their story, it allows you to give constructive criticism on how to improve their work, which is important for improving their writing skills.
And also think before reviewing a story complaining that somebody is 'Out of Character'. Remember that everyone interprets and connects with characters differently.

Ships I support
I live vicariously though the turbulent relationships of TVD's Damon/Elena and Downton Abbey's Matthew/Mary.
Flawed character I love
My thoughts on Delena vs Stelena.
I am utterly and completely "Team Delena"
Damon and Elena's relationship is so beautiful (in both the books and the show) as they have to fight to get there...it's not an immediate "Love at first sight", it's something that they work towards which I find more realistic and romantic.
Hopefully Delena will be the end game relationship from the main trio love triangle when the series finishes as I fully support the author of the Vampire Diaries book series L.J Smith who was fired from writing the books as the owners wanted a Stefan/Elena endgame, whereas she felt strongly for the Damon/Elena relationship. I think it is disgusting that the author who spent a great deal of time and effort to create a story and world for the owners, who were incapable of writing it themselves, could be fired for feeling strongly towards a particular pairing, and I refuse to read the rest of the series which will be released under the name of L.J Smith as author, yet having been written by a ghost writer.
So everyone out there...the only reason Stefan and Elena will be the endgame in the books is because the author was fired from writing the series and a ghost writer, writing under the original author's name, has been told to write Stefan and Elena and ignore any possibility for a Damon and Elena endgame. In my opinion, Stelena fans shouldn't take it as a victory, you've been cheated out of a true and proper endgame for your ship just as much as Delena fans have.
Gryffindor; where the brave dwell at heart.
Hufflepuff; where they are just and loyal.
Ravenclaw; where those of wit and learning will always find their kind.
Slytherin; those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends.
A Hufflepuff and Proud of it!
Current Projects - In progress...will be uploaded soon
Vampire Diaries: Fire A Damon/Elena oneshot. (This will be uploaded after the Season 3 finale)
I apologise for the delay in getting these fics uploaded. I'm really struggling with writing at the moment and don't have the confidence to upload anything new. I promise they'll be up at some point
Update: I have decided due to personal reasons that I'm not going to be watching the new season of Vampire Diaries until I feel emotionally ready for it. I still passionately ship Delena and I will still be writing fanfiction for them, but I can't watch the show until the writers learn some respect for characters and actually gain some story-telling skills.Update 2/11/12: I have some ideas for Delena fanfics which I hope will help me feel better about the horrible direction the show is taking with the ridiculous amount of favouritism to Stelena. But as it's November I'm currently working on NaNoWriMo, so won't be writing or uploading any fics for at least another month.
On to the stories.
