Author has written 10 stories for Lion King, and Inception.

Welcome to my page!

Me:

I graduated in 2014 with a BA in creative and professional writing. I enjoy creating characters who have to fight against and overcome some part of themselves.

If you're interested, I'm on deviantART. Please check out the artwork and old non-fanfic content I have posted there.

I have a rarely-updated writing-dedicated tumblr: Essie Bacher Presents, but I also have a regularly-updated facebook page: Official Fan Page

Smaller Stories:

Things under 10k. I'll let you read them instead of my thoughts on them.

Bigger Stories:

W.I.P. "I Would Do Anything" Pre TLK. Concepts: responsibility to others and self, criticism of others and self, flawed heroism, and love; status: outline fleshing.

* Pound of Flesh

Alternate TLK 2. What if Simba had taken Kovu in? The story focuses heavily on nature/nurture, responsibility to family, loss, and heroism. The title itself works on several levels: 1) The Pride Land penalty for trespassing, 2) Common flesh and blood with one's family, 3) The weight of responsibility, 4) A play of sorts on the act of chest-beating as an intimidation display. IN PROGRESS

ART:

Simba and Kovu star gaze

Sarabi and Kovu talk

Furious Sarabi

* Just Beneath the Surface

Post-TLK 2. Bulk of the story focuses on the aftereffects of one's actions, rather than the initial act. It focuses on how Kovu's decisions affect him and the other characters, leading him to seek redemption. Concepts: good intentions/bad intentions, nature/nurture, family, heroism, faith in ancestors and self, price of revenge, and sanity. COMPLETE
