Poll: Whilst working on Remember What Came Before I have begun a third and final installment to the series and a epilogue for all . So I have a query...Would you like a third? And if so...well, you know how it works Vote Now!
Author has written 18 stories for Twilight, Fever Series, and Labyrinth.
06/12/2012 - Ok, I know, I always swear I'll be back. And I still do. I just seriously have not slept more than one night in 2.5 years. Truly. My darling daughter is a tornado on legs who hardly naps and goes to bed at the same time I do, then wakes up 4 or 5 times a night. The there's the starting back at work after maternity leave. All in all, it does not leave me much (read any! =P) time for writing. But I am still floating around, I have not disappeared completely! I do have story plans - one being the complete overhaul of 'Remember What Came Before'. Expect a slightly hurried finish to get the ending out and the third instalment going (I have it generally planned out in my head) - after that I will come back and try and bring 'Remember' up to the smoothness of 'Faire'. Many of my unfinished works (excluding Lonely Wolf) will likely be scrapped. The ideas are there, but the road is unclear, so they are probably best left as incomplete on my computer rather than fan fiction =P. Please PM me if you wanted to know where they were headed, and I will give you an idea - just for closure lol. 'To Topple A Seelie Prince' (inspired by the BEYOND BRILLIANT Fever Series - thank you Karen Marie Moning!) may also be completely redone as I have been re-inspired by her latest release...but all in good time! I'm so thankful at the fact that people are still reading my stories - truly, speechless - you guys make my day!
And let me shout out a special thanks to Argengirl who is giving up her free time to translate 'A Faire To Remember' into Spanish!
A/N 05/10/09 - Thanks to you guys, my fantastic, beyond words readers, this morning I opened my email to the best way I could imagine starting my day. 'A Faire To Remember' has been accepted onto Twilighted! Check it out...and again, you guys are brilliant beyond words! Thank you =)
Ok, what to tell you...
I only work casual (yay me!) so that gives me heaps of time to write. Constantly. I have no particular favorite pairings with twilight (which is what I write for most often!!), though I prefer not to work with Edward and Bella stories as they are in Stephenie Meyer's series - that was the whole twilight plot to me (: However, knightly Edward...hmmm. Hotness. I feel like the rest of the characters might have more to say. And I want to give my idea of what that might be. My first fan fic 'Does Everyone Get Their Turn' holds a special place in my heart, I feel like Leah and Nahuel might have been in Stephenie Meyers peripheral vision..
Ok, I really suck at being put on the spot by summaries and titles, so I'll give you a little more of a look in to my other stories. Another added note; some of my stories have one particular song that for me is kind of the theme for the story - I'll add the song after the summary =)
'A Faire To Remember' - My favorite kind of story...one that involves time travelling (:. I have had this one rattling around in my head for a while, and I've been dying to get it out, but I didn't want to massacre it, so special thanks to mhgood for checking it all over for me. So, anyway, back to the plot line. A lonely and miserable Bella is dragged to a medieval faire by her friends Alice Brandon and Rosalie Hale. While she's there, something strange happens and she finds herself flung back through time to Medieval England, right to Edward Cullen, knight extraordinaire and jerk. Can she make a dent in his armour and find real love for herself? Even as others try to rip everything apart? There are lemons! Complete - theme song; Song of Seraphim by Dead Can Dance
'Remember What Came Before' - The sequel to 'A Faire To Remember'. More time travel; this time Bella returns to her own time, leaving the friends she has made behind - all but one that is, who has been dragged back with her...how does the new arrival take modern times? Does lost love mean lost forever? I won't say anything else, cause I don't want to spoil the surprise--oo, except every story needs a bad guy!
The Beautiful One' - Rosalie seems very vain and bitter in the twilight series, and I really wanted to look fully into why she might be that way. SM's short chapter where she explains things somewhat to Bella didn't seem enough to me, so I thought I would add my own elaboration. We all have our reasons for being the way we are. We know she was raised to see herself as better than anyone else, but I wanted to see how her attackers might have changed her from just vain, to something with a little bit more depth. Maybe.
'Her Turn At A Wedding Night' - Speaks for itself. I tried to work within the bounds of SM's writing when doing 'Does Everyone Get Their Turn' by keeping detailed physical accounts out of the story, but one review hit what I had already been thinking...I wanted her wedding night! So I added it as a seperate story to keep to my original plan. Complete
'When Edward's Away Bella Will Play' - I couldn't help myself. I love a good romp. It is my concession to Bella and Edward. The only thing I really missed in the series. I'm considering an exact description of how he ripped the bedhead apart...oh that stuff is exciting. Complete
'Another Turn Of Fate's Wheel' - Is my sequel to 'Does Everyone Get Their Turn'. I let the characters get so far into my head, they didn't want to leave. I knew I had to carry on the story...I say that yet it starts from before the original...it will get there, and continue on afterwards. Poor Embry, he's had it as bad as Leah, maybe worse, not knowing his father, or having an imprint. We'll have to rectify that. by the way, Sam really isn't as bad as I make him out to be, he's just...confused, like the rest of us. But he has the responsibility of La Push and the pack to add to his confusion. Complete
'Does Everyone Get Their Turn' - Like I said, it seemed at the end of Breaking Dawn like this is where things might go. At least in my view. Bitter, angry Leah - she lost Sam, she lost her femininity, she lost her Dad. She might seem overly negative, but I think sometimes the hurt just gets to be too much. I had to make her happy, I couldn't help myself. Enter Nahuel, lost and hurt in his own way. Let the healing begin. Complete - theme song; Unchained Melody by The Righteous Brothers
'Sometimes You Just Have To Be Thankful For Alice' - Ah, another lemon, oh how I love them. This one is a three way between Embry, his imprint Suyai and Alice. With a special guest. Complete
'You Never Know When Someone Is Watching' - My view of who may have been the first ever vampire and how they would be. I think this will shape out to be one of my favorites. I may take a lot longer with this than most others I've done because I want to get it just right (I'm a bit of a spit it out and post it person!). There's not much to say just yet, keep an eye on it.
'Alice' - Just something that popped into my head...basically a bunch of paragraphs exploring different moments of Alice's life from her privledged childhood and loss of her father, to finding her true family. Complete
'The Final Turn' - A one shot epilogue to both my imprinting stories from Seth's POV Complete
'What Happened When You Left' - My take of what would of happened if Bella had never found herself riding motorbikes or cliff diving to hear Edwards voice. Also what happened if Edward came back later because he couldm't help himself. My attempt at a Bella/Jacob pairing that eventually will become a Blackwater. Set loosely in the end of New Moon/Eclipse timeline, after Jacob's offer.
'Sorry Can't Mend A Broken Heart' - I have been given a plot line and I am attempting to use that basis to make what I hope will be a fantastic story. Totally out of character, of course. A cheating Edward? Let's see how things work out. Idea belongs to unique0987654321. Complete
'The Lonely Wolf' - After bringing Joshua Uley into 'Another Turn Of Fates Wheel', I wanted to write more about how where he started - Sam's Mom, their mariage, his first knowledge of phasing, of course his imprint on Embry's Mom and how that affects him and eeryone around him. Sometimes things are just out of our control and we have to work with what we have as best as we can. It seemed like a sad story with a hopefully happy ending. At least, that's the plan. Theme Song...is in the next chapter lol, I'll post it here after the chap is posted.
'To Topple A Seelie Prince' - Okay, this is obviously entirely out of character, seeing as all my other stories are Twilight based. I have enjoyed Karen Marie Moning's stories for the longest time, but have only recently found her Fever series. I never saw anything in her Highlander I felt lacking, and clearly I only have in the Fever series because they aren't complete, but...hey. Something different, right? It is starting out with a similar environment as she has left it in Faefever, but I aim to move towards something a bit more like the Highlander series...anyway, actual plot would be nice. Don't you hate how V'Lane is unbelievably sexy, but Mac is more likely destined for Barrons? I think V'Lane's ability to attempt decency for a human needs exploiting, and what better character than an older (and as Mac predicted, grown into her features and stunning) Dani? Can't you just see the Irish girl's cocky attitude, mixed with V'Lane's (unhealthy) belief in his superiority a wonderful base for a romance? I do, and here's my version. Theme song - Give In To Me by Michael Jackson. Says it all. Trust me =)
'Una feria para recordar' - Special thanks to Argengirl, this is the Spanish edit of 'A Faire To Remember'.
After I finished with my story I read thunderskies Leah/Nahuel pairing. Impressive. Read it. No, really READ IT!
While you're there, don't forget about how much we all love a review...so let your favourite writers know how much you love them!
Also if you have suggestions or critiques, I'm dying to hear. I've been pleasantly surprised that people have actually shown any interest in my stories as I write and post them for my own enjoyment. I love reviews of course. They give me warm fuzzies, so to those of you who have reviewed, I am forever grateful. In particular those dedicated enough to review every chapter, or near enough, I prostrate myself before you. I am honoured beyond words. Anyway, most importantly, I hope you get enjoyment out of what I write, or at least some sort of emotion (even extreme distaste), if I can make you feel something, I must be getting things right somewhere along the line (: Happy reading.
These links are for Another Turn Of Fates Wheel. Sometimes I just can't help my girliness.
These links are for A Faire To Remember -
- the dress at the top shows how a medieval woman would get in and out of a bliaut _ There are more examples at the bottom of the page of 12th century medieval dress. I ignored the belief that women may have worn a contrasting girdle - I may be wrong, but I have not seen a huge amount of evidence that suggests this.
-I have taken a bit of liberty with headdress. In the time Bella has found herself in, headresses were wimples; complete head coverings rather like a nun would wear. Historically accurate, but not as much fun. I believe the form I have used comes from around a hundred years later. This link shows how to make a veil to wear with a circlet. In my mind (again, not historically accurate!) there is no strap under the chin. Women did have pins for wimples in this time, so I have worked on the assumption the women pinned their veils in place, and finished them with a circlet.
- This is a link to the painting that influenced Bella's ivory gown. In Edmund Blair Leighton's painting 'The Accolade', the dress the woman wears is completely ivory with gold embroidery, whereas I thought the contrast of gold kirtle sleeves would be more interesting (and slightly less like a wedding dress).
Let me know if you wish to see anything else, I will hunt it out - by the way, the ring IS coming. I have photographed it, but for some reason can't load my pics into my computer...I'll try and fix that before I get too much further with Remember What Came Before.
