About Me: My name is Sierra, I'm 19, and I would always rather in be in Las Vegas than my current location. I love flowers, Lana Del Rey, positive vibes, horror movies, doing the Time Warp again, deserts and mountains, RPG games, sci-fi, Tarantino movies, femme fatales, Hunter S. Thompson, dark comedy and kittens. Effie Trinket is my spirit animal, Mia Wallace is my idol, Lana Del Rey is my muse and I would marry Specialist Samantha Traynor if she were real. @electricgurrl on Instagram (and everywhere else).
About My Fics:
General: I write multichaptered fics exclusively for the A:TLA/LoK fandom. I love romance of all kinds, but my usual genres of love stories are family dramas, noir mysteries, dark thrillers, fluffy fics, offbeat comedies, and traditional romance. I'm a planner, I prewrite before posting and I always use the traditional narrative structure. Azula Redemption fics are my Kryptonite, and I also love butterfly-effect AUs, using the antagonist as a protagonist, two girls making out and twists on tropes.
Updates: Monthly. I usually update two fics every week, but the individual fics range (on average) between 8 and 35 days between chapters. Since I write a (very rough) rough draft of the entire fic before posting the first chapter I promise that everything will be completed and updated regularly/eventually.
Dark Topics: I don't shy away from depicting real life, and in real life, bad things happen. I avoid character death and graphic depictions of violence. If I write about rape, abuse, torture or any other traumatic events, they won't be detailed, and they will never be for angst alone or ignored. I've struggled with PTSD for years, so I keep repercussions in mind. And I always try to balance darkness with light.
Romances: My romances are usually about characters who need to grow and change in order to be together, because I find it interesting to write. I strongly prefer writing about couples falling in love for the second time around, after the end of their relationship or long separation, instead of writing about the first time. I like realistically flawed and difficult relationships, but with an optimistic slant. I do love Tyzula!Redemption romances, but I don't write love as the cure alone; I like to write it as Azula seeing who she really is reflected in Ty Lee in the way she can't see herself. Drama, break-ups and conflict aside, I love fluff so much, and write copious amounts of it.
POVs: I want to make a 'disclaimer' of sorts that I like to write stories very colored by the character's point of view. I don't ever want to offend a reader or make people think that I agree with genocide, insults, abuse or Azula's ego. So here's my promise that I don't ever endorse or condone a villain's perspective despite frequently writing from one. (I also sometimes don't agree with the opinions of heroes that I write, but that's a rarer case)
Happy Endings: I love a happy ending (they are so rare ;P), and my fics always have one. The catch for me is that I think people have to make happy endings for themselves, with the determination, incentive and perseverance to get there. It's not a given; I make the characters fight for and earn it, but it's my brand of catharsis.
About My Shipping: I love femslash, but prefer canon over indiscriminately shipping hot girls with each other. My favorites are those ships that make me want to scream, "JUST KISS ALREADY!" whether they're canon or noncanon. I'm not a real fan of crack!ships, but I do like a few (MaixJune, for example) that have been introduced to me by well written fics. Tyzula and Hayffie are my mega OTPs. Here are the ships I swoon over (brackets are for ties):

FemShep x Traynor
Finnick x Annie
Mai x [Zuko, Ozai or June]
Korra x Asami
