Author has written 6 stories for How I Met Your Mother, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Equilibrium.

Hi everyone!

A few things you'd like to know about me:

My pen name comes from Ani di Franco's (one of my favorite songwritters) song Little Plastic Castle:

"They say goldfish have no memory
I guess their lives are much like mine
And the little plastic castle
Is a surprise every time"

I have read the Harry Potter books many more times than I like to admit,

I love being addicted to TV shows,

and books (I read about 1-2 books a week),

and fanfiction,

I'm a nerd - although I'm not sure you could tell from the outside.

Hope you'll enjoy my stories as much as I enjoy yours!

LPC.

PS : English is not my first language. But I love it because everything sounds so much better in English, don't you agree? So, if you spot any mistakes please feel free to correct me.


The reason why I read fanfiction is, primarily, for the pleasure of reading a well-written story. The fact that the stories revolve around the characters I love in the books/TV shows/movies I'm interested in is the cherry on the cake (this is why I'm very picky about the stories/authors I favorite. If you want to indulge in literary goodness, click on any of them at the bottom of my profile!).

I try to follow this rule in my own writing: if what I'd like to say can't be translated nicely into words, then I don't bother. I usually need a week to write a 3000-word chapter: first days I think about the story I want to tell, how I'm going to structure it, what kind of feeling I want to render. Then I start writing, and I can write it all in one go. Finally I read it and read it again, trying to find the best turn for each phrase, changing one word here, one adjective there. I spell-check as much as possible, and am always careful about punctuation. These are minor things, but I know they kind of put me off when I don't find them in other fanfics.

Reviews fuel my motivation. It's probably the case for most writers here. But I find the writing job can be a very solitary, thankless one - this is why I really appreciate when people who read and like my stories (sometimes to the point of favoriting them) leave a review. I personally always review the stories I read, even if I don't end up favoriting them.

Now you know all about my reading/writing process, please feel free to browse my other stories!

PS: and please, please, always try to finish writing a story. It just breaks my heart when I start reading a good one and then the author just seems to give up on it (ok, I'm not always good at updating, but I'll always finish my stories. Sooner or later. Promise!)

The Time It Takes by aethershine reviews
"I asked Finnick once how he knew he loved Annie, and he said she snuck up on him. I think after all this time it has been the same for me."

I promise a few surprises along the way. Spoilers. Complete.
