Author has written 3 stories for Ella Enchanted, and Persuasion.

The name: Well, since I discovered fan fiction, I'm not as much of a bookworm as I once was, sadly. But I'm loath to change it at this point, so Bookworm1137 I shall remain.

About me: I'm female, a recent college grad, and mildly obsessed with fandom. If you want to know more than that, ask, and I may or may not tell you.

What I read: Well, a little of everything, really, but on this site, mainly Whoverse, Buffyverse, How I Met Your Mother, Tamora Pierce, Jane Austen, and Ella Enchanted. I have a few ships that I manically support even once the rest of the world has moved on, and I adore long, plotty fics that advance these chosen ships.

What I write:

Call Me Char is a retelling of the events of Ella Enchanted from Char's point of view, which is delving more and more into completely fabricated territory. About two thirds of the way done now, and still updating. Don't let anyone tell you it's abandoned, my muse is just massively unpredictable lately.

The Princess' Tale is a one-shot addendum to Call Me Char that deals with a scene I couldn't fit into the main story. I strongly suggest reading Call Me Char first.

Compulsion is my current baby, starting where Ella Enchanted leaves off, with a few small changes that make a big difference. The plot will mirror that of Jane Austen's Persuasion. I won't really get rolling with the updates on this one until I get past a certain point in Call Me Char, but I'm excited.

I've also written a few stories for other fandoms, but out of respect for my poor, long-suffering Ella Enchanted fans, I haven't posted them on this site. If you're interested, check out my masterlist at suprememugwump1.livejournal.com.

I'm also a beta reader, if you're interested.

ETA: My stories have covers now. Sort of. Anyway, in case you were wondering what a lute looks like, there's one on the cover of The Princess's Tale. If you're an artsy type and want to be supermega awesome, you could contact me about drawing cover art. Otherwise... well, one day when I have massive amounts of time, maybe I'll draw something myself. Until then, Google image search it is.
