A Little Bit About Me...
Fanfic name's Naisa, not my real name as you probably assumed, I suppose this name is the 'writing side of me'. This profile page is just going to tell you a bit about me and my first love - writing :)
I am currently at University studying Ancient and Medieval History, and I love it! :)
Favourite Genres: Action, adventure, sci-fi and humour
Favourite TV Shows: Doctor Who, Merlin, Primeval, The Big Bang Theory, Red Dwarf, Blackadder, Bones and Horrible Histories.
Favourite Films: Emperor's New Groove, Monsters Inc, How to Train Your Dragon, Tangled (because adults secretly love Disney), Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes, and probably many more, I watch too many films! I also enjoy older films such as Sleepy Hollow, Back to the Future and Lethal Weapon.
Favourite Books: Alex Rider Series, His Dark Materials Trilogy, The Seven Kingdoms Trilogy, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, I Am the Messenger and the Book Thief. Like with my films there are probably many more as I always love to read a good book
Favourite Musicals: Les Miserables, Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Chicago, We Will Rock You and The Lion King
Favourite Style of Music: I listen to all sorts of music, but my favourite genre has to be symphonic metal (metal and classical instruments combined) and metal. Favourite bands include Epica, Nightwish, Within Temptation, Kamelot, Machine Head and Disturbed.
A Little Bit About Me on Fanfiction...
Woo fanfiction is awesome! :D I love being able to write stories for the TV shows etc that I love, and being able to share some of them with you.
Disclaimer - I own nothing apart from one or two OCs, but you probably already knew that.
I'm more of a writer than a reader. I will apologise now for any grammar or spelling mistakes in my stories (and probably in this profile too!) I do read through everything I write, but that doesn't mean any typos etc, don't slip through the net.
According to 'user stats' I have written 765,000 words on fanfiction, with about 14,700 words per story. My chapters are on the shorter side, usually about 1 - 2,000 words long, but one-shots can be longer. I've just reached a big landmark of The Tallest Tower being my first ever story to have 200 favourites, which I am thrilled about :) a big thank you to all my followers and favourites in all my stories, as always!
Reviews are always much appreciated :) Please note that I try to reply to all reviews apart from anonymous ones. I think this is a nice idea as it shows the reader the author is grateful for the feedback and answers any questions they may have, although sometimes it is a little time consuming. I also review all stories that I read in return, as I think it's always useful for a writer to know what readers think of their story.
I am currently in my third year of uni, which means that I will be getting a lot of work so updates may well be delayed. I hate keeping people waiting and try to update as soon as possible, but please be patient if updates are slow, thanks :)
I also have a Community all about Mergana (BBC Merlin), there are some great stories on there so feel free to check it out :) Story requests are welcome, so if you see a story with some great Merlin/Morgana moments, let me know! I'm always looking for more staff too so if you're interested send me a PM. We've just reached 100 stories in our archive! A big thank you to everyone who has contributed a story so far :)
Stories in Progress:
Not posted anything in a while on fanfiction because third year at University is insane, but I just wrote a little Merlin one shot to get into the Christmas spirit, I hope you enjoy it :) Not sure when I will next post a story, but hopefully I won't be away for too long!
I absolutely love writing, always have done and always will. My dream is to have a book written by my own hand on a book shelf one day so support and advice for improving my work always means a lot to me :)
I have also written some things outside the world of fanfiction:
'Poppy Girl': a stand-alone teenage novel with a mixture of reality and fantasy about teenage bullying, Victorian London and a spectre which has been waitinf for a very long time for revenge. It is currently available on Amazon kindle. There is a full synopsis on its Amazon page and a preview if you're interested in learning more :) (Available on US and UK Amazon sight)
'Do You See What I See': a series of short stories and poems about the Holocaust, which is also on the Amazon Kindle. I was inspired to write it after visiting Auschwitz in 2011, so it's very personal to me. I wrote it to try and spread the messages I got from that unforgettable trip. I didn't realise I'd learn such important lessons there, and just felt I had to spread the word, so I used my writing to do so. Click here (US or UK Amazon sight) for a preview.
'The Silver Cauldron': a new book I have been working on for the past couple of years. It is the first in a fantasy trilogy about revolution, prophecies, destinies and revenge. It's currently on the 6th draft and this summer (2014) I hope to be sending it off to writing agents :)
I currently have a Facebook page which has updates about my writing, you're welcome to 'like' it if you're interested, it means a lot to me to have people's support! :) Click Here for a link or search 'Poppy Girl' on Facebook.
Click Here for my profile on fictionpress, not much on there, mainly poems, but feel free to take a look :)
Newsoul001 has translated my story, An Inkling, into Chinese! :D Click Here to read!
Nastine has translated by Sherlock Holmes 2 story, Keep Dancing, into Russian! :D Click Here to read!
Well, I think that's all you need to know for now, thanks for taking the time to look at my profile, I hope you read some of my stories and that you enjoy them :)
All the best, Naisa x
