Author has written 4 stories for Twilight, Hunger Games, and A song of Ice and Fire.
NB!!! Actually writing again these days! Hunger Games/ASoIaF crossovers might not be everyone's cuppa but at least words are happening.
Hello person-reading-my-profile! Considering you actually bothered to click on my username, I should probably tell you a little about myself.
Name: Direwolfy, sometimes I go by Ithildinel (Yeah I'm paranoid private person in public places, but my inbox is always open if anyone wants to make friends :) I also appear as midautumnnightdream on tumblr, mostly for Les Mis stuff (and apparently fraking out over second-wave French Romanticism? Didn't expect that).
Birthday: 28. February 1994
Likes: art, books (mostly historical fiction these days), music, theatre, nature, photography, people, sun and so on...
Writes: ...Not much any more, unfortunately. I get all sorts of ideas, but penning them down is like trying to catch sunlight with a fork. If I ever stop failing at doing words, FFnet will be first to know.
My fandoms of the moment:
What I like in fanfiction:
Believability: I seek out fanfic (mostly) because I want to reconnect with characters I love and to see a different spin that could be put on their actions and motivations. Of course, every author has their own interpretations which may or may not tally with mine and that's okay... but sometimes it feels like people don't even try? Why write fanfic that has nothing to do with the original, about characters who only share names and physical descriptions? There's an argument to be made that even fictional characters are the product of their surroundings and circumstances, which is why I usually stick with stories set in canon universe. Honestly though, a truly brilliant author can make everyone lizards in space and still pull it off.
What if... scenarios: Connected with the above, because they don't change the characters or the universe they operate in, but make things different enough to be interesting. There's something incredibly compelling in exploring the cause and effect scenarios and if there is a 'Fix It' element in there, so much the better.
Wacky hjinks: A lot of authors do grimdark. Sometimes they also do funny, heartwarming and other stuff that makes Good Literature(tm). Rarely do they do out and about randomness, which is what fanfic is here for. I have really REALLY soft spot for fanfic depicting the characters being friends, taking care fo each other and getting into all sorts of idiotic situations.
Character development: Never easy, even less so in fanficiton, but separates the really good stories from ocassional entertainment.
Bad guys: What can I say? I love my villains well... villainous. I'm not saying everything has to be black and white - far from it, but not everyone is misunderstood and secretly good. The shades or gray also include the characters who feel like they do what they have to and don't WANT to change. Making all the 'misunderstood' and unsympathetic characters turn all nice and dandy is just a different version of black and white. (My personal vendeta is with Snape - he was one of the greatest dark heroes of the whole fictional universe, until I stumbled upon all those fanfictions in style 'hm, he was a good character after all, meaning he must be actually really cute and cuddly and is only acting like a jerk, cuz James was mean to him when he was 15!' And don't even get me started on Draco Malfoy...)
Grammar/Spelling: Yeah, watch the pot calling the cettle black... But since I'm not that good at English, it only makes it harder for me to chew through spellchecker remnants. Oh and people, please... grammar and spelling mistakes I can handle, but not the Walls of Text. Space and enter keys are there for a reason. Use them.
Finally, I'm sorry for all the grammar fails and the weird mixture of Americanisms/Britishisms/Whathaveyou. It's probably obvious that English is not my first language. ;) If anyone wants to correct my mistakes, I'm grateful. If anyone wants to comment on my (admittedly very old) writings, I really appreciate it. If anyone just wants to talk, about my stories, the fandoms I mention on my profile page or well, ANYTHING, that's what my PM is there for.
