About Me (former pen name Beyond Peripherial Vision)

Hey ya! I've always found these introductions quite precarious, so you'll have to forgive any awkwardness on my part. My name is Sidra, and while I wouldn't identify myself as a writer per se, I am someone who occasionally enjoys writing. I'm not dedicated to my fiction, though I would probably be a better person if I were. Short stories are my favourite, I'm always impressed when an author can build characterisation, plot, and theme in such a short amount of words.

I'm a vagabond of sorts. After living in a number of other countries, I've found it hard to sit still (most likely the reason I'm not a dedicated writer). I enjoy indie and acoustic music, as well as photography, culture studies, playing my ukulele, education reform, and working as an international communications associate and copywriter for Youth With A Mission (YWAM).

Quotes

“I am going to take this bucket of water and pour it on the flames of hell, and then I am going to use this torch to burn down the gates of paradise so that people will not love God for want of heaven or fear of hell, but because He is God.”

— John Green, Looking for Alaska

"I like it when it rains hard. It sounds like white noise everywhere, which is like silence but not empty. "
— Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime

“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”
— Maurice Sendak, Author of Where the Wild Things Are

Midgardian Dreams by icaruspandora reviews
A short story in three chapters about Jane's dreams while running from Malekith with Loki and Thor. A fairy quiet story, actually. Slightly Lokane-ish by the end. (Hoping I got the genres right.)

Consoling Molly by AshenWhisper reviews
John and LeStrade ask Sherlock to console Molly now that she's back to work after the events of TGG. But Sherlock's way of consoling isn't exactly what the doctor ordered. One-shot, no pairings, just Sherlock snarkiness and Molly being flustered.

Fallen Star by Alydia Rackham reviews

Hands in Jars, and Other Home Accent Notions by trip-trap reviews
WHEREIN: there is much John backstory and abstract musings on the distinction of life from death. Bromantic, though one of the bros claims sociopathy and the other occasionally exhibits it. Kinda slashy.

Heaven and Hell by Arwen Jade Kenobi reviews
Sherlock Holmes's perspective of the events of my previous fic "Hide and Seek". Needless to say you're going to have to read that first in order for this to make any sense.

Buttercream Icing by songxbird reviews
Holmes/Watson Bromance. "Holmes," Watson interrupted. "This is hardly the time or the place to discuss the nature of my hygienic routine." Why did Watson stay awake after the duo was thrown in jail? To Holmes, the answer is obvious.

broadway and seventh by irnan reviews
The subways in New York are still running after over two centuries, and they're a tourist attraction in their own right these days. Sam Kirk just wants off them.

Getting to Know You by Lanaea reviews
Oneshot, K&S. Could be taken as pre-slash or just friendship. Jim's not a science officer, but he's kind of inclined to analyse one.

Evening Observations reviews
As unrefined as the pun my have been, Watson could not help but to agree with the observation. He showed his concurrence by burying his mouth into the crook of his arm and joined Holmes in the attempt to smoother his merriment.

Never Is A Promise reviews
Watson called from the hallway, “You know I'd never leave you alone for more than a few days, you'd destroy everything – including yourself.” Holmes blinked absent mindedly at Watson's last statement, "Never is a promise. And you can't afford to lie."

The Mathematics of Friendship reviews
Chekov gave up the writing utensil to his captain. He watched closely as Kirk marked out a random cluster of the equation, and re-wrote the numbers in a different order. Handing the marker back to his navigator, Jim smirked, "You made a mistake." Oneshot.

Cheap Wine reviews
She fetched the boxed wine and a pair of paper cups. The lack of refinement was due to the fact that she had not actually been able to swallow fine wine from a glass since he vanished. It was his favorite choice of alcohol. Oneshot; light AlleXSume
