Author has written 16 stories for Stargate: Atlantis.
I figured it was high-time to get my profile description out there.
As the little flag somewhere on the page signifies, I'm from the US. More specifically, Wisconsin. :)
I am a strict shipper of McKay and Keller, McKeller is my passion, although I'm open to all other ships excluding the two of them.
I've only just started writing and sharing my stories, with the nonstop insistence of a true and brilliant McKeller author, DaniWilder, and with the incredibly inspiring words of Scr1tno. If you haven't gotten the point of this paragraph yet, check out Dani and Scr1tno's stories because you're missing out if you haven't.
Those of you that have read my stories before know that I have a clichéd style of writing. Something I have to work on. Also, I'm now able to beta stories and am up to any offer.
As for a few personal details, I live in a pretty small town not too far from Chippewa Falls. :) I have two sisters. One is my other half and the other...well, she's just there. No brothers and pretty normal parents. Another thing, I'm absolutely obsessed with country music and obviously Stargate Atlantis.
Favorite hobbies include reading and writing fanfiction, almost all sports, nature and believe it or not, academics.
If you're interested, below are some of my favorite quotes, most of which have inspired a story or two of mine or just overall relate to the feeling of reading or writing here on fanfiction (dot) net.
And also, just beyond the quotes lies more details on a few of my stories. Personal thoughts or comments about them etc. Otherwise, this is where the description of myself and my purpose of writing this profile end.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and read my profile.
"What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though." - J.D. Salinger (The Catcher and the Rye) -- It's my personal opinion this is the very theme of fanfiction.
"Why does one begin to write? Because she feels misunderstood, I guess. Because it never comes out clearly enough when she tries to speak. Because she wants to rephrase the world, to take it in and give it back again differently, so that everything is used and nothing is lost. Because it's something to do to pass the time before she's old enough to experience the things she writes about." - Nicole Krauss
"The best moments in reading are when you come across something-a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things-which you had thought special and particular to you. And yet, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours." - Alan Bennett (The History Boys: The Film)
"She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live. She read books as one would breathe ether, to sink in and die." - Annie Dillard (The Living: A Novel)
"It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it." - Oscar Wilde
"You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend." - Paul Sweeney
Starting at the beginning, I first got the idea of writing BlueEyed Beauty because of my love of music. I had wondered what it would be like if Rodney and Jennifer picked out their own song as many couples do. Of course the story took a turn and headed in the direction it wanted to instead of following this original plan as so many stories tend to, which is okay by me seeing as I sorta like how it turned out. Nothing to regret or anything.
I next struggled to come up with a second story plotline. Strange, silly, absurd ideas kept finding their way into my head until Fluffy Clouds finally made it out. Can't say I agree with the process (or outcome) though. I shall continue writing that one even though it has taught me that I highly prefer Oneshots over multi-chapter stories.
Loving Reality was third to surface from my swamp of a writing mind. I seriously have no clue where it came from. Left-field is my best guess. I most enjoyed writing that one because I got to put in descriptions one normally doesn't see in a story. The thoughts and feelings were some that aren't often shown on screen and the emotions deserved a peak of sunlight.
The McKeller Firsts started out as a Mother's Day gift to a close friend per her request. I decided to turn it into a little bit more when I couldn't seem to stop writing it. As of right now, I have a good start on 8 different chapters. There is absolutely no revelence of order for when I write them (though I am determined to post them in order) so they are written side-by-side with others until they are complete whether they're up next in line or not. And I must say that I'm enjoying the feedback for this one the most.
Sounds of the Heart I hadn't really expected to write. I had some key description sentences I wanted to use in something simple to write and came up with this exaggerated idea. I enjoyed being poetic in a story seeing as it's often my true nature.
McKeller Flash Fiction Frenzy... (smirk). I haven't a clue how it started. I don't recall writing most of the chapters as they are normally written between the hours of 12 and 4 in the morning. I do know this is one I doubt I will ever end just because they take an hour to write tops, they're fun, and inspiration is renewed easily.
Truth or Dare: Five Days of Dare was next and that was really just me wanting to join in the fun of the challenge. Not sure why I didn't just publish it under the flash fiction frenzy but oh well... I'm glad it got so many reviews since they've been dropping lately.
A Keller Christmas was my way of saying Christmas should be year 'round. The idea anyway, not the presents or food etc. I'm completely open to suggestions for this one while I still have a few ideas myself.
A Sundae Stroll was to ensure I was still a cheesy writer. No, not really, but I am sorry for that title. I was craving ice cream and since we didn't have any, I gave Jennifer and Marie some for me. (I don't even like cherries on my ice cream so I'm not sure where pushing them to the bottom came from.) And against popular belief, there was no hidden meaning in the summary.
Burning Pleasures, that title I'm proud of. I do regret allowing Jennifer to take a sip of coffee (only one!) and given the chance to rewrite it, I probably would.
Meeting Granddad just started with me writing down word after word. I hadn't actually planned it out in the least. I could think one word ahead of what I was writing. That's probably why it is unfiltered in sappy humor.
And lastly, Staying came out of nowhere yet demanded to be written on the spot. I've never lived through an experience such as this and I had them fighting and comforting each other before I knew what they were fighting about. Yes, I write backwards compared to most people.
That's all the stories I have written thus far, I'll try to remember to come back and add the descriptions to new stories as they come.
