Author has written 15 stories for Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl, and Glee.
I never intend to steal anyone's picture for my avatar. I do not own most of the pictures I use. If you ever see a picture there that is yours and you do not wish me to use it, just tell me.
I've created a Fiction Press account. I'm not sure how much I'll be using it, since at this point in time my fanfics are still my top priority as are as my writing goes, but I have posted one short piece there if anyone would like to check it out.
If any of you lovely people who can actually draw/paint/etc would like to make cover art for any of my stories I would be much obliged.
I have recently embarked upon a partnership with another writer on the site, Arty-The-Puppeteer. Our joint account is called Crazy-Minds-Think-Alike and our fandoms are Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl. Our 1st story, a HP next gen fic, is in progress. Go check us out!
Looking at GOF I noticed a line that reads "...and Snape, of course, would no sooner let them play games in class than adopt Harry." I found that amusing considering the multitude of Severus adopts Harry fics out there. Does that mean they get to play games in Potions class now too? *grin*
About Burn Reviews: I'm all for constructive critisism, but it confuses my why anyone would waste their time writing a flat-out burn review. But there you go. You'd think if someone didn't want to read about the something they wouldn't. Say, if they didn't like characters being gay, they wouldn't read a SLASH fic but, again, there you go. I don't particularly enjoy being preached to about how my my views are wrong. Huh, who would have thunk? *Sarcasm*
On the flip side, it annoys me when I try to give constructive criticism and the writer blows up at me. Geez, what did you think reviews were for? Pure, unadulterated praise? Someone has an ego...
Now, about me.
I'm 20 years old.
I'm a college sophomore. I should be a junior but I took a gap year and spent 5 months in Argentina doing volunteer work (Equine Therapy) & living in a homestay. I HIGHLY recommend going abroad.
I'm a MAJOR theatre dork, ESPECIALLY musical theater. I can go on about Broadway all day. And don't even get me started on Wicked or Glee.
I know (and care) almost nothing about pop culture and find it exceedingly weird that I am actually into something now that is a part of pop culture & the general public knows & even cares about & keeps appearing in all those matgazines I never read. (That would be Glee and the actors involved)
I'm not a big TV person, but I do love Glee, The Nanny, Star Trek TOS, & Bones I really likes Smash and Being Human too, but I stopped having time to watch them.
I'm pretty obsessed with Harry Potter, but not overtly. I don't hide it, but I don't go around proclaiming it to the world either. That would get old fast. I do know a ridiculous amount though, like I'm basically an encyclopedia. And if you get me started on it, don't expect me to stop any time soon.
I also love Shoshana Bean, Megan Hilty (yes, even before she was on Smash), The Senate (a band you probably haven't heard of), Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Idina Menzel, Juanes, Anthony Rapp, Adam Pascal, the Beatles, Billy Joel, and, well, a lot of other music, of all sorts of genres.
Team Starkid is totally awesome. Enough said. Except that I got to go to both the Space & Apocolyp tours ;)
I think I'm a pretty good writer, though making all my original fiction ideas come together into real stories gives me issues.
I LOVE to read. I read all the time, even when I shouldn't, like during class, hehe. I especially like fantasy, but really anything that is a good story with good characters. I love characters. I can forgive a lot if the characters are engaging.
Some of my favorite books and authors are, of course, Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl, but also LOTR, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Book Thief, Melanie Rawn, Tanith Lee, Tamora Pierce...the list goes on.
I don't like math or science, I much prefer English and Spanish.
I'm a bit of a sap, I admit it, I cry easily and I like sappy stuff, as you'll probably find if your read my stories.
I ride horses, I'm decently good.
People who start a fic I really like and then never finish it bother me. Gah! I want to know what happens! Likewise for book series in the real world. A Song of Ice And Fire anyone? How long will it take for the next one to finally come out?
I can't spell. That's what Spell Check is for.
I love the romantic fantasy world in general and sometimes feel like I'd rather live there than in the real world. Romantic not necesarily as in love/romance but romantic in the broader sense of the word.
I love faeries and I collect faerie figurines and other faerie related stuff. (And I prefer that spelling of faerie)
Sometimes I can act like a little kid, but sometimes I can act really mature too.
There are several other part of my personalilty that are like that.
My favorite color is yellow. I know there are lots of ugly shades, but I like a good yellow. I like yellow and lime green together. Lime green is my second favorite color (not the neon kind that burns your eyes out, the nice kind).
I am a natural blond with brown eyes.
I can organize my time well. My stuff? Not so much...but I'm a LOT better since I stated college.
I love animals, especially cats and snakes and horses.
There is no order to this list.
Yes, I'm willing and happy to talk to you :)
Has anyone noticed that a lot of the authors on here have similar other interests besides fanfic & reading & HP? Like, muscial theatre for example. There are so many people on here who like musical theatre! :) There're a lot of people interested in both HP and manga too, but I'm not one of them. Manga just doesn't do it for me...
