Author has written 23 stories for The Music Man.

Who am I?

In brief: college student, singer, actor, writer, reader, cat lover, daydreamer, procrastinator...

I'm a stereotypical soprano, real-life ingenue, and basically an adult child. Or very childish adult, or something. I'm so sweet and innocent that it'll make you sick. ;)

If you knew me, you'd know that I am literally the last person in the world who is qualified to write romance due to my complete lack of experience with however that goes in real life... but hey, I've never been to Iowa or the year 1912, either, and I don't let that stop me!

Another thing you should know: I am the (self-proclaimed) Fluff Queen. To say the least, I am not the sort of person who gets any sort of enjoyment from "tearjerkers". I can take "poignant", to a degree, I guess, but I cannot handle "sad", with the exception of in backstory. Romantic fanfiction is my sweet little escape from all the unpleasantness of real life, and I really don't want to read dark or unhappy stories about characters who are supposed to be living happily-ever-after! I write what I want to read, so I keep things decidedly on the lighter side. :) In fact I've found myself practically physically incapable of writing non-fluffy romance with these characters, and don't even get me started on my refusal to acknowledge that anyone (besides children) ages... but I accept my limitations with grace. Some say that happily-ever-after fluff is dull and uninteresting, but I hope I can challenge that notion with every story I write. I'm trying to perfect the fine art of "fluff with substance" - or peanut butter and Fluff, for those of you who are familiar with the notoriously sticky sandwich.

It seems like whenever I start writing something these days, it turns out to be about 5,000 words longer than I'd expected... my idea of a "short little vignette" just seems to get longer and longer over time! But that should be enough to let you know that my commitment to fluff does not mean a lack of commitment to story or character development :D

My fandom of choice is the one that brought me to this website in the first place, The Music Man. I've been inventing the story of Harold and Marian's happily-ever-after since before I even knew what fanfiction was, and the fics that I'm writing now are often at least in part based on that storyline. All of my stories are based in the universe of the original movie made in 1962 (which happens to be one of my favorite movies of all time) if you're wondering!

I'm always writing at least a little bit, and I'm always in the market for new ideas, so watch this space!

I am also on Archive of Our Own as CarolinaNadeau.
