Author has written 55 stories for Walker, Texas Ranger, Necessary Roughness, Harry Potter, Friends, Pokémon, SeaQuest, Detective Conan/Case Closed, Addams Family, and How I Met Your Mother.
I, Ckorkows, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else. I have joined the review revolution.
I am Ckorkows, or CK if you prefer to shorthand it. I work for my church and have three dogs and a wonderful husband who is not creatively inclined. My hobbies include reading and writing, the shooting sports, racquetball, biking and hiking as well as other creative pursuits such as soft pastels and oil painting, though this year I have mostly focused on writing.
This year I made the decision to stop writing fanfiction. Because I've been a part of this community for so long and because Fanfiction was one of the things that helped me when I was suffering PTSD, this decision has been painful for me to make. I love fanfiction. I love the friends I've made - the wonderful people who follow my stories or participate in my forum - and the feeling of creating good endings for characters who deserve them. For the past eight years of my life, Fanfiction.net has been an almost constant companion. However, my life goal since I was five years old has been to write and publish an original novel. The past couple of years I have been trying to juggle both fanfiction and my original writing and it's not working. I've come to the conclusion that I simply don't have the capacity to love my own characters and someone else's at the same time, and it's time to leave fanfiction behind.
What this means is that I will be working on finishing Eight Years and The Rangers Book 2: Judas over the rest of this year, but I am not planning on writing any new stories for Walker, Texas Ranger or my other fandoms. I won't be taking down any stories just yet, but please don't expect new stories from me. There may be a few that trickle in if I can't help myself (or if I do gift fics/participate in events), but they will be few and far between. I do plan on remaining part of the fanfiction community, even though I won't be writing fanfiction. My forum, The Room, is active and thriving and is in no danger or being closed so you can always find me there, and I'm always available via PM to chat or answer questions or talk shop.
Thank you so much to everyone who has stopped by and read this. I wish you all the best with your lives and writing and hats off, once again, to the ever wonderful world of fanfiction!
Please check out my forum, The Room, where our mission statement is, 'We read, we write, we review'! The Room is a positive environment for anyone who wants to improve their skills in all three of those areas while having fun with some games and events.
You can check me out on Tumblr at promptsup.tumblr.com where I share two writing prompts a day.
Shot Through the Heart - My first Detective Conan/Case Closed fic! This story is set probably early in the series and involves a mysterious client, a rooftop, and a suspicious Conan. It's also, possibly, a little angsty.
Crash - A Rocketshipping Drabble Fic set in the hot air balloon... well, sort of.
Phantom Night - My first SeaQuest fanfiction, this Gift Fic is set after the episode, The Knight of Shadows, and is a little fun, a little romantic, and a little spooky.
Can't Friends Just - Another Sydney/Trivette fic, this one just sort of hints at possibilities and contains a little bit of Syd/Gage angst. Trivette returns to headquarters after hours and bumps into a friend in need of comfort.
The Rangers Book 2: Judas - Chapter Twelve is up! There’s a rat in the Ranger organization and all fingers point to an old friend of Company B. When this man disappears and all evidence seems to point to his guilt, can the newly reunited partners and their senior officers clear his name in time to save him?
Eight Years - A sequel to Seven Years. This is the plot that I could never manage to fit into the first story and is set one year after the events of that story. A revenge plot and a bump in Sydney and Gage's marriage turn her almost-back-to-normal life upside down.

Addams Family/Harry Potter Crossovers
I have started writing several AF/HP crossover stories, mainly featuring a Draco/Wednesday pairing that I must admit I'm utterly infatuated with. I thought I'd put a little info here on the stories, instead of clogging them up with Author's Notes. Also, I'll be grouping the different stories below so that if someone liked a particular storyline from one, they can see if I've got another story in the same "verse".
The Addams Family and Magic
For most of these stories I am presuming that the Addams' family is a pureblood family in America. My basis for this is the fact that Morticia has an interest in Dark Arts, Grandmama is constantly brewing potions, and many things around the family estate could be explained by enchantments. And let's not forget the fact that Grandmama also seems to have knowledge of Divination.
I don't think it's going too far to suggest that the whole family is capable, on some level or another, of magic, but I also think that because the children are tutored within the family and attend muggle schooling, they have learned magic differently than those who have attended Hogwarts. This means that nonverbal, wandless magic is common in the family, but that they aren't as well studied in the diversity of the arts as students of Hogwarts or Ilvermorny would be. I also suspect that the men of the family don't use magic very often, if ever. They're capable, but I think that they only use it for entertainment while the women are more interested in pursuing specific forms of magic as a lifestyle.
Most of these stories will draw from the various television shows and movies for characterization, taking the best aspects of each of them. I am new to writing characters like the Addamses, so please be patient with me while I find their voices.
I will mention that I have always thought the Addams family was a loving, loyal bunch who are completely unaware that they're not normal. I do not presume to make them into sociopathic killers or anything of the sort, but hope to capture their dark nature without leaving a trail of bodies behind. For the most part in the shows and movies, the Addamses were terrifying, but harmless. Their home did more harm to people than they ever did, and I intend to follow that pattern.
On Wednesday: So a lot of people picture Wednesday as a mini Morticia, and that's awesome, but while some aspects of my Wednesday follow that path, I've always thought she had different opinions on love than her mother. My Wednesday is a reluctant lover. The type of person who can love, but hasn't yet and doesn't see any benefit to falling into love. She's a little shy about it, once she's actually stuck in a situation or realizes she might actually have (gasp!) feelings, and alternates between trying too hard and avoidance. Particularly in my FCA universe where, though she won't break tradition by ending a marriage any other way than death, she's certainly out of her element when it comes to romance/love.
The First Comes Abduction Universe
The stories are listed in chronological order of events, not in order of how they were written. This is to help readers who might like to read in chronological order. Currently all of them have been published in order.
First Comes Abduction - In this first story of the "FCA" universe, Draco obtains his bride from America.
Wednesday's OWLs - Four months into their marriage, Draco has a request for Wednesday and she gets payback.
One Night at a Time - Set nine months into their marriage, this story has Draco accidentally letting slip three little words, and Wednesday running. Our favorite Malfoy also meets his in-laws for the first time, and has to figure out how to convince his wife to come home.
