Story Updates: August 15th, 2018
By updating Slytherin Reformation today, I've crossed over a million words written/archived for this site. An incredible milestone I never thought or dreamed of reaching when I joined this site over eight years ago. Every word I've written has been inspired by my audience who's encouragement has kept me on this little hobby of mine through school and work and real life in general these past eight years. I don't think I'd ever reach this plateau without you all who've read and supported my stories and me on this site. So thank you.
I'm putting together new outlines for The Slytherin Reformation and War of the Laurels since those outlines were lost when my laptop crashed. It's been a struggle that is why they haven't had the same success in an update as my ASOIAF stories.
I'm working on all my stories, but am going through some minor struggles with the muse and finding the time to write. None of my stories are abandoned even if it feels that way. I'm sorry for the delays and wish the writer's block would crumble and I could give you the speedy updates you deserve.
Thank you for your patience and support, it hasn't been forgotten and it means so much to me.
Important update: January 10th, 2018
My laptop crashed in December. I lost all my data from it including partially written chapters for my stories and the outlines for them. This unforeseen accident has proved to be a major setback. It has punctured my muse, and left me with little interest to write presently. I hope to go back to rereading my stories and trying to put together new outlines to try to recover everything I've lost. That being said, sad to say I probably will have nothing new in terms of updates until March or April at the earliest as I try to get back to these stories that you have all been incredible in your support and patient in them being updated.
Learned a valuable lesson in this mistake and will be more diligent and consistent in backing up my stories/outlines.
Sorry for the delays, I hope you understand, and thanks for the support to both me as an author and to my stories on this site.
I do not take story requests. I have enough potential stories just from my ideas that I don't need to add on others. I'm flattered you've asked me, but I just don't have the time.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm not that great of a writer. I still have a lot to learn. So thank you for your patience. I like to think that my writing has improved over the past five years I've been a member on this site. I want to continue to improve my skill with each passing chapter and new story.
My writing style:I try to focus my stories on the characters. I like to put an emphasis on character interaction and character development throughout a story. I want to try to keep true to their personalities and perspectives, while also exploring said character. These characters are what drive my stories and my muse.
Bioware: I have nothing but admiration and appreciation for them for creating two of my favorite fandoms-Mass Effect and Dragon Age, not to mention KOTOR. Won’t say much on ME3 for obvious reasons, but they created characters and worlds that I couldn’t ignore once the games were over.
Why I write in these fandoms:
Mass Effect: The characters
Dragon Age: The lore/the world
Harry Potter: The possibilities
A Song of Ice and Fire: All of the above
The fanfictions I enjoy to read the most are Mass Effect, Harry Potter, Star Wars (KOTR), Dragon Age, A song of Ice and Fire series, and Game of Thrones
Fanfiction Appreciation: Eight years
I'm amazed I've been on this site for seven years now. So much has changed in that time, my gratefulness for finding this site has never been stronger. I'm humbled by the feedback my stories have gotten in that time and thankful for the people I've encountered. It's always so great to talk characters, stories, and fandom with people who share a similar passion.
I've found so many great stories on this site that deserve to be on my bookshelf with some of my other favorite works of fiction and non fiction. I'm extremely thankful that these authors have shared their amazing gifts with us for free, it's incredible and I'll never stop being grateful for the amount of time they have invested into telling these stories.
It isn't always easy to write, but it is always appreciated.
So thank you
As for my own stories. I have some I need to finish, and others I want to start.
As a reader I will review stories I subscribe to. I ask the same to my readers as an author.
Cover Image Request: To any talented readers out there if you have any interest in creating the cover image to any of my stories, please contact me. All I can offer you is my sincere gratitude and credit to your talent. Thank you.
My stories: Completed:
Mass Effect-"Enter the Collectors"- My first foray onto this site. My take on Shepard entering the collectors' ship, inspiration for this story coming from James Cameron's classic "Aliens." Edits and revisions do need to be made to the story, I have also thought about re-releasing it with added chapters. So stay tuned.
Mass Effect- "Aftermath"- My take on what happens as soon as Shepard destroys the collector base. This is not a Mass Effect 3 story. There will be no Reaper wars in this story. It is my interpretation of how Shepard handles the next few months, as he tries to rally the galaxy against the Reaper threat.
Mass Effect- "I will Rise"- An AU story that has Commander Shepard and Miranda Lawson meeting during Mass Effect One when he is shutting down Cerberus Cells. Could this encounter affect the way Shepard sees not just Cerberus but the galaxy itself?
Mass Effect- "We Will Rise"- Sequel to "I will Rise." A loose novelization of Mass Effect 2.
Harry Potter-"A Chance Encounter"- AU: The story follows the simple premise of Harry meeting the Greengrass family at Kings Cross instead of the Weasleys. He becomes friends with Daphne, not Ron and how this simple encounter reshapes Harry's Hogwarts years.
