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