Author has written 51 stories for Walker, Texas Ranger, Necessary Roughness, Harry Potter, Friends, Pokémon, 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 am in the second half of my twenties, just pre-retired this year to start my new life as a homemaker, and am working on my 2016 goal of writing an original fiction novel. My hobbies include reading and writing, the shooting sports, racquetball, and hiking as well as other creative pursuits such as soft pastels and oil painting. I am also an occasional, crooked seamstress and want to try my hand at crocheting now that I've got more free time.
My primary fandom (you may have noticed) is Walker, Texas Ranger. Most of what I write does not require fandom knowledge to understand, as someone once said while reviewing me, "You've watched one crime-drama on tv you've seen them all." My current fanfiction goal is to write a fic for every letter of the alphabet and start on another sequel for my The Rangers series. We'll have to see how that goes. My long-time followers/readers can tell you that sometimes my ideas are greater than my abilities, but if you hang around long enough you'll find I usually pull through and complete things.
I try to respond to every signed review with a PM, and if you ever have questions, comments, concerns, or need a listening ear, please feel free to message me. My door, as the teachers like to say, is always open.
I wish you all the best with your lives and writing and hats off, once again, to the ever wonderful world of fanfiction!
May God bless you all,
I have decided to try my hand at running a forum. I would just adore seeing you all over at The Room, where our mission statement is, 'We read, we write, we review' and I hope to create a positive environment for everyone to improve their skills in all three of those areas while having fun with some games.
The Rangers Series now has a timeline! See where the events in that series take place compared to my estimations of canon events and their time frames!
I am now on Tumblr. Check out my blog for updates on my art and writing.

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.
Gloves Off - My first ever Pokemon fic, this one shot is one of those "Ash and Misty stumble on Team Rocket and discover their relationship" stories. Sort of Pre-pokeshippy and definitely Rocketshippy.
The Naked Man - This "How I Met Your Mother"/"Walker, Texas Ranger" crossover features Mitch--a one-off character from the HIMYM universe who uses his one and only dating move on none other than Sydney Cooke. Mostly silly.
Insomnia - A Pre-Mondler story featuring a run-in with an ex and a sweet conversation.
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?
Walker Texas Ranger Season 9 - The sixth episode, El Dia De Los Muertos part 2, is now up. Check out the Episode Guide at the bottom of my bio to find out what's planned for this digital season.
The Rangers Special Assignment - This is a mini-book from my Rangers series. I think it will wind up being five to six chapters in length and I am currently working on chapter three.
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.
Much Ado about Walker - The title is a WIP, but I'm doing a WTR crossover with Much Ado About Nothing so you can expect something along those lines. Basically placing the classic tale in modern day Texas and using the whole WTR gang, including Carlos and Trent, as my cast.
The Wedding Photo - "Girl, that boy's in love with you." Sydney's friend is a little too observant while looking at a photo of Alex and Walker's wedding party, and her comments may just change everything for Sydney.
The Rangers Book 3: Reaping - In a continuation of The Rangers series, this book is set after The Final Showdown episode and will center on the case of notes describing murders that have no bodies. My OCs will return along with a new Ranger, and Sydney and Gage will finally come to terms with the attraction simmering just under the surface.
Shift - A Pokémon adventure about a girl who is transported into the world of Pokémon Leaf Green while playing Pokémon Go. She must play through the game to find her way home, but as she does she changes the people of Kanto and they change her.
Signed in Blood - Malfoys are tricky people, and Draco certainly inherited that trait. In an effort to avoid a marriage law in England, he finds a wife in America and tricks her family into signing the betrothal. But what was intended to be a business deal just might wind up as love when Draco and Wednesday hit it off.

The rest of the episode guide is under construction. Stay tuned for updates!
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.
