Poll: Who should join the Potters in the next 'verse? Vote Now!
Author has written 3 stories for Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who.
All right, I'm going to give an update for those who have Favorited my Author profile in the hopes that I'll be posting the next section of the series. I have written through the Silent Cartographer so it is not complete yet, but it is not forgotten.
A couple notes on the various series that I like...Harry Potter is one of my favorite here because the fan fiction is so much better than the real series. I mean, I hadn't gotten into the fan fiction until after I read the whole series and I had thought that she had done a great job in the writing until I found this site. I agree with the Harry/Ginny completely. There aren't really too many other choices because I hold onto the view that Hermione is considered very much the closest thing to a sister that Harry has and it was very obvious that she was written to be in a relationship with Ron. The only other 'ship that I consider interesting is adding Daphne into the mix. She is the only interesting Slytherin in my opinion, mostly because of the name, but what else do we really know about the Slytherin females?
I have deleted my rants of the Potter Verse, but my opinions have not really changed. Stargate doesn't need a rant because that series was great. Starwars, well, let's just say I'm a fan of the pairings given in the series and there are a few that can get downright weird. That also includes KOTOR Bastila/Revan (good Revan). Starwars is also great for the Crossovers, the crossover that I wrote is evidence enough right?
Wizards of the Force - Harry and Ginny have lived a full life to over a hundred seventy-five years, and they're given a chance to have a different great adventure than the one Dumbledore was talking about. They step through the arch and find themselves in another galaxy on the verge of a galactic war.
Jedi of Magic has been completed for a while and I've enjoyed the reviews, what few there have been, but thanks anyway to those who have favored my stories and actually reviewed them. While I tried to keep true to the stories, I did vary it a little in that the rebellion was a little more active and better equipped. It begins just before A New Hope, the Jedi have been laying low and rebuilding their ranks and preparing for a second showdown with the Emperor. Harry and Ginny continue to produce clones revolutionizing the Jedi and their Code, citing that if it had not been for them, the Order would have been wiped out. With Anakin and Padme's support, the Potters and Skywalkers face off against at least one Death Star, more Sith and alot of Star Destroyers. Pairings - H/G, A/P
Halo Potter - working title is where Harry and Ginny have stepped through the veil once more and end up in the middle of the Pillar of Autumn as they're unfreezing Master Chief. It will cover game one and some of the books with the other Spartans on Reach. No spoilers, but hopefully, there can be more survivors by the end of the "game". Character deaths? Don't know...No extra pairings aside from the obvious H/G. Note: both are still powerful and they have toys from the SW verse. I do have two other SW characters at some point in the story, but I don't know if I'm going to keep them. This story is actually on pause for the moment. I got stuck during the Silent Cartographer as I was trying to decide is Anakin and Padme were going to be in the story, just on Reach with the other Spartans. Basically, I over complicated the whole story and couldn't figure out what Padme would be doing there since she isn't a Jedi and she isn't powerful unless one is in politics, something that doesn't happen for the Spartans in the war. I'm stuck but...
I just started publishing another short, it's a SW/DW (Doctor Who) that is a fun short of a date night with River and The Doctor and they end up in the middle of the Jedi Council just before Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan return from Naboo with the Queen and Anakin. Not much action as the Doctor wouldn't really do anything in the middle of a battle, he isn't one for the action of a Jedi, and there aren't too many puzzles to solve for him in the middle of the Trade Federation.
There is also another Crossover that I started writing. I'm in the middle of chapter three and it is a HP crossover with another 'verse. I won't share which one, but there is plenty to write with it and the first two chapters set up the how he gets to where he does. It is not a 'ship story though, it's an everybody he loves is dead and he volunteers for an experiment that might end him. Which of course it doesn't and instead sends him elsewhere with little to no chance of returning. Hardest part is trying to figure out how he is going to move into the timeline of the TV show he's joining, just a little teaser I guess. There aren't that many shows that are compatible with HP. Well, I don't think there are. No Anime or cartoon. It's a show that ended several years ago that was highly successful and is a favorite.
Smallville was a great series until they kept putting off Clark's flying until the end though I understand the reasons behind it (don't have to like it). I don't mind the occasional Clark/Chloe when they're well written (not many).
Honorable mentions - Firefly, great show and it's sad that they cancelled it (great for the movie though). Gears of War, there aren't too many fan fics of this out there, but now that they finished game three, there might be some more, though I'm not in with the series enough to write something myself.
Finally, I haven't gotten any of my works published, but since I was 17, I've been writing and this last year, I completed book five of a full blown novel series that will make it to the shelves in the next three years (such is my goal for book one). It is difficult of course to get a foot in the door for publishing, but I'm going to try it anyway. Cries of Battle: Selstra is the name of book one and it's a science fiction military, non-earth series where an advanced human race is fighting a group of aliens for their survival. I'm not too interested in getting my work out there on the internet, because I would hate to see it copied and turned into a blockbuster by somebody else. Feel free to PM me if you're interested in reading some of it. I'm currently revising several short stories on my fictionpress site... nathanielj is my author name and here is the link. http://www.fictionpress.com/u/470456/Nathaniel_J
I'm currently 31 years old, achieved my Associates this past May and I'm looking at the prospects for getting my BA in English. Don't know for sure yet. Yankee fan (whole life), Floridian by birth though I live north of Georgia (too cold up here) and I have a three year old old that has been taking up quite a bit of time (as those who have kids know) and then also a ten months old with another on due December 24th. They all take up so much of my time and that isn't even counting the 40 hours I spend working. I try and make sure my stories are all written and completed before publishing them on this site, so if I don't publish a story for a while, I'm just trying to get enough time to finish the fanfics and then type them up. Constructive criticism is more than welcome and I did alter some of the first fanfic as some suggestions were quite good. I have tried to come up with good combat spells, but in the end, you should remember that there's a reason the combat spells are the way they are, complex spells take too long to cast and it can get a person dead regardless of how cool or unique the results are.
