Author has written 33 stories for Harry Potter, Avatar: Last Airbender, and White Collar.

Hi, I'm Fish, a college student and aspiring young adult fantasy novelist, which apparently makes a pretty common fish. I'm writing the third and final (before I go a-querying) draft of my first novel, and it doesn't much resemble the original concept at all.

As far as fanfiction goes, at the moment I stick to Harry Potter and Avatar the Last Airbender as my fandoms. I'm currently trying to alternate one chapter of my novel with one chapter of a novel length fanfiction or a shortfic, and I post updates to my newest novel length Harry Potter fanfiction, Children of Mars, on the first of every month.

My Livejournal account, linked above as my homepage, is always the first place I post fanfiction (though I post to all applicable accounts almost immediately after) and the only place to get my drabbles, pastiche, and flash fiction, as well as any notifications about delays, early posts, or disruptions. Everything is carefully tagged, and easy to find, unlike some journals I've seen.

I have disabilities. I wanted to keep that off my profile page, because it doesn't have much to do with my personality, but persistent ableist comments on fanfic of mine that have characters with disabilities in them compel me to tell you that I am oxygen dependent and have a severe immune disease. Anyone who makes a comment referring to any character as crippled, or gimpy, or says this character's life is over because of a disability, or expects my characters with disabilities to be Victorian style long suffering objects of sweetness and pity will be considered pond-scum. The rest of you, thank you for not being pond-scum and I hope you enjoy my stories. I have a basic primer for how not to be accidentally offensive with regards to disability and fanfiction here.

Fanart based on fic I have written:

Anyone else who wants to translate one of my fics, drop me a line.
