Author has written 10 stories for Avatar, Nikita, Vampire Diaries, Once Upon a Time, and Dark Swan series, Richelle Mead.


Wrote "New Beginnings," a fic for Richelle Mead's Dark Swan series. I don't normally write fanfiction for books that I have read (with the exception of Harry Potter) because let's face it, Harry Potter is just awesome...but I wrote one for this series. The reason being, because I was so disgusted with how it ended! The story started out so strongly and it was like the author just gave up on the character altogether. At any rate, Eugenie, Dorian and many of the characters did not get the proper send offs that they deserve. This is my own conglomeration of how I think the finally pages should have read.

There seems to be a limited amount of Dark Swan series fan here on fanfiction, so if you liked my ending, please let me know. :) Enjoy!



I also have a page at fictionpress.com...same name (just spelled differently!) A. J. Manders ...fiction and short stories (fantasy, young adult and romance) there for entertainment! :) http://www.fictionpress.com/ajmanders

If you like my writings so far on this website, I recently created a new blog. All things writing, TV reviews, tips on how to eBook publish; as well as my own works of fiction. Don't be afraid to stop by!


Little bit about me...

I live in New York and I like to read and write and be outside as much as possible! I just graduated from college...the world's the limit. Wish me luck!!!

New and Old T.V. shows I am currently obsessed with:

Once Upon A Time





Buffy the Vampire Slayer


The Big Bang Theory

Game of Thrones

Vampire Diaries

Downton Abbey

Something new I just thought of: Favorite Characters:

Lady Sybil (Downton Abbey) Because she is strong, independent and beautiful. She knows what she wants and who she wants and she isn't afraid to go and get it. She would give up her whole world for a new one; she's grown past her class.

Captain "Mal" Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly) Well, one: Nathan Fillion is awesome. But, the character is complex. Very sensitive to people under his command, or people he cares about, despite his rough exterior. He has a past that we rarely know about, but it was there. (And should have had at least 5 seasons to expand upon!) Inara is the only one who unsettles him, because he loves her.

Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) Mostly because of his imperfections. He is very vulnerable despite his tough act and also because of this, extremely likable. There's also that signature leather coat and white hair.

Arya Stark (Game of Thrones) She's so feisty. "Stick them with the pointy end!" Because she is close to her brother Jon Snow, who is also awesome.

Sawyer (Lost) Epic one liners. His dimples. Because even bad boy's have soft spots, and this one most definitely does. Because be becomes a hero although he certainly didn't start off that way.

Prince James "Charming" (Once Upon a Time) Because he is absolutely adorable. But not just that either. He is strong, heroic and has the classical heart of gold. But in the real world, we see that he also isn't perfect and that makes him more human, more complex, a more interesting character than any of the male roles we have seen in Disney flicks. They've given this one layers, finally brought him to life and that makes me happy.

-In which I will certainly add more as I think about them. It is surprising how much TV characters inspire my writing and characters of my own. Some of the best fiction creations are ones that exist on the screen. :P

Closer To You by cloverblob reviews
Mary and David have their memories blindly returning. James can't get to sleep when the two most important women in his life are in the room next to him; so close, yet too far. Charmings-centric.

Perspective by FeyFaerie reviews
Two-Shot Drabble -Storm Born-. Insight on the separate thoughts of the devilishly sexy eccentric fairy-king, and the effortlessly attractive gun-loving shaman, on other sides of the circumstances. So, apparently tiny Dark Swan fan base, thoughts?

The Complexities of Stefan's Heart by Vampire00Diaries reviews

It's dangerous for David Nolan to be falling in love with Mary Margaret Blanchard when he's married, but he doesn't care. Mary Margaret/David. Spoilers and speculation for "The Shepherd".

Oneshot that takes place after Serenity. Inara cares for Mal after his fight with the Operative. As usual it descends into petty squabbling between them, but will it be different this time? Can Inara allow herself to choose love over obligation?

New Beginnings reviews
This is how I think Shadow Heir should have ended. My own bandaid, if you will, to such an open-ended conclusion to a great series. "What are you going to do?" Evan asked. I looked up. There were tears on my cheeks. "I'm going to take them home."

Broken Hearts reviews
How did Katherine's heart really end up at the Toll Bridge? The Queen sneered at Rumpelstiltskin as he stepped into her home. "So, Snow took the potion?" said the Queen impatiently. "Will it take?" Rumpelstiltskin let out a maniacal laugh. DISCONTINUED.

My expansion of the scene that we see of Stefan and Elena at the end of "Dangerous Liaisons." There wasn't anything he could say. How do you undo murder, destruction, mayhem and heartbreak? So he did the only thing that he could do. He kissed her.

Happily Ever Afters reviews
Now a series of One Shots. Updated with "After Thoughts." Inspired by 7.15am. Okay, so maybe kissing him in the middle of the street hadn't been the best idea. But all she can think about now are his lips on hers and his fingers in her hair.

The Impossible reviews
Wrote this in response to "Snow Falls." There was something about him, she thought. Such easy assurance. The way his eyes said he cared, said that he worried, said that he hurt all at once. His eyes entrapped her more than that net ever did. ONE SHOT.

Soul Mates reviews
His voice was rough from screaming. "I need you so much." She hated to see him so vulnerable, but a part of her cherished it because she knew this was a side of him that he didn't let people see very often. "I love you, Caroline." ONE SHOT

She had saved his life, but she still lost him. He felt the anger bubble up inside him, felt it course through him like a second life. He could live with the hate, as long as it took the pain away. Betrayer. Friend. Nikita. Inspired by episode 9: One Way

He watched her throw her fists at the punching bag. Left, right, left, right. Her whole body was into it, her waist and her hips twisted with the movement. She was beautiful, he thought, and she didn't even have to try. Beautiful and dangerous.
