Hello! I'm Southern Steel and if you're reading this then thank you for your interest in me and my writing! I will try and keep this short (which is hard because I am so long winded) and just give you a little information about me and what I write. Skip down past my in-progress stories to learn more about me and my writing. :)
My In-Progress Stories
Unnatural History: "The Anthropologist's Son"--On hold until further notice.
Chronicles of Narnia: "Then There Were Two"-- Also on hold until further notice.
Now You See Me: "A Time For War"--Also on hold until further notice.
So...I've been away for a long time. I have no excuses, just a terrible problem with jumping from one obsession to the other. I will finish all of the above stories one day, I swear, I just don't know when that day will be. My sincerest apologies and I hope ya'll will forgive my lack of inspiration and updating.
As I said before, I'm Southern Steel. As you can probably guess, I am a Southerner (from the US, just to make that clear) and I am proud of it. I am a huge history buff, with my top three favorite periods to study being: (1) Early American History (Civil War and back), (2) Ancient Egypt, and (3) Irish history. But my top area of expertise, I guess you could say, is the American Civil War. So if you ever see random history facts in my story, then you know why.
I suppose you could say I am a rather dark person. I tend to be rather serious (though I do love to laugh and smile) and have a very dark sense of humor. I am socially awkward, which is probably why I'm on fanfiction all the time. I am also a Christian and Jesus is number one in my life. Without Him, I would not be who I am and would be in a very bad place. He saved me and for that I give Him the total glory and praise.
About My Writing
As I stated above, I am very long-winded, so most of my stories will be several (or more) chapters long and as descriptive as I can make them. I love desciptive writing and I do tend to go overboard on it, but it's fun, though not as fun as tearing apart a character's inner-most being and thoughts about any little thing. That is becoming something that is more fun to me then watching the shows themselves!
I also stated that I am a rather dark person. That definatly shows through in my writing as most of my stories have very dark themes. I have wrote about child abuse, torture--both mental and physical--kidnapping, war, and death. I don't write to praise these things, but to call awareness to them, especially child abuse. I feel strongly about these things and want to call attention to them and take the glory from them, revealing the true horrors they are.
Please forgive me of any grammer or spelling mistakes in my stories. I am awful at both and spell check can only help to a certain degree. I try to catch all my mistakes, but I appologize in advance for any I do make.
Perhaps most important, however, is I do not write slash and I never will. That is just something I cannot support and that, quite frankly, digusts me. I respect other's rights to write, read, ect. slash, but I will not give my support to it in any way. I'm not a romantic person in the first place--I much prefer action, adventure, angst, and tragedy--but in the few stories I write that are romance, they are strictly between a boy and girl.
As a final side note, I also do not cuss. Therefore you will not find any cuss words in any of my stories, even for the shows that do cuss quite a bit. Anytime a character would cuss, I will either change it to a different word or simply say "so-and-so cussed." I know for some shows that makes them out-of-character, but it's a personal thing and I hope no one will hold it against me.
If you enjoy my stories--or even if you don't--please go check out the stories under "My Favorites." I am an extreamly picky reader and have several criteria that I pay attention to when reading. This includes: Descent grammar and spelling, good plotline, interesting, mostly in character, well written, and either complete or updated frequantly. The stories that I have favorited embrace these criteria and are, I believe, the absolute best and most amazing stories on fanfiction (That I have found so far.)
The categories I have favorited are: Merlin, Bonanza, Harry Potter, Power Rangers, Alias Smith and Jones, Gettysburg, Robin Hood BBC, Sandlot, Chronicles of Narnia, Protector of the Small, Supernatural, Psych, Ranger's Apprentice, Now You See Me, Sherlock, The Musketeers and Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew. Do the authors a favor like you are doing me and go and check out some of these fantastic stories. :)
