Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter, and Silent Witness.
‘It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.’
Live. Laugh. Love
This is my escape from reality. This is where I can visit a different world, laugh and cry with characters that have become so real and dream up characters that play in my imagination. This is where I can become someone else through my writing, and become someone that no one expects me to be.
Writing saves my sanity :) and yet no one knows I write. That's why I can never express how much I appreciate everyone who reads and reviews my fics, because without you all, I don't think I would have continued to post on here :)
To begin with I read mainly Harry Potter, and tried to write my own fic, The Protection of Friendship. But it didn't get very far. I might go back to it in the future, or it may stay unfinished forever, I'm not sure at the moment. In my head it's already finished, but finding the time and motivation to write everything down is difficult.
I think it's easy to notice that Silent Witness has basically taken over my writing, and now I mainly read SW fics rather than anything else. My main fic, A Knight in Yellow Scrubs has become so much longer and more detailed than I ever thought possible when I stared writing it, and despite my awful uploading waits, I know exactly where it's going to go, and how it will end :) It wouldn't have made it past the first chapter though if it wasn't for all the amazingly brilliant people who have kept it going :D
But I really do need to apologise for my update times. It’s usually about 3am I get the inspiration to write, and yet with all my uni work at the moment, I feel as if I’ve neglected my writing :( I will get it back on track soon, promise :D
I write angsty fics. Not all the time, but somehow, even if I start a fic with the intention of fluff, it ends up a mixture of fluff and angst. And I can’t write short fics to save myself…
To my friends I'm a butterfly obsessed, Harry Potter fan who could survive on strawberry milkshakes and has a fascination with rainbows.
If I was to describe myself as someone who has seven piercings, a tattoo, red streaks in my hair, loves Tim Burton films and lives in hoodies… you’d probably picture someone completely different to who I am… Truth is, I’m terrified of growing up (will always be searching for Neverland), I’m so girly sometimes I annoy myself, and although I’m a complete adrenaline freak when it comes to roller coasters and assault courses, I am a complete wimp with other things. Threaten me with a spider and I’ll do anything you ask :p
To my family, I'm me. I don't have to pretend to be anyone else, or hide who I am. I would die for my family, they mean the world to me, and yet they don't know I write. And I don't know why I haven't told them. I suppose if I ever think I've written something good enough, I’ll show it to them, but I doubt it’ll ever happen.
I draw, I paint, I write. I swim, I go kick boxing, I walk. I love bare feet in the sand, dancing in the rain and getting lost. I hate odd numbers (apart from the number 3), liars and being cold. My nicknames at school were Boo (from Monsters Inc), Snow White and Nikki. I forgive too easily, become attached too much and worry more than I need to. I’m scared of the wind, spiders, and above all, losing those closest to me.
I become obsessed with things far too easily, and yet when I do it’s very unlikely that I’ll ever stop loving them.
Harry Potter is my childhood, and I refuse to believe it will ever be over. I’ve read the books too many times to count, decorated my room in quotes, and managed to drag my brother and sister into the Harry Potter world after ten years of trying, and many heated arguments over Harry Potter vs Twilight. Needless to say, I won, and my sister has agreed that she is now a much bigger fan of Harry Potter :D Aaaaand, Albus Dumbledore may well be the most amazing character ever dreamt up, with his brilliant quotes :D (yes, I may have memorised a few of them :p)
Butterflies have taken over everything I own, and I even have one tattooed on my back.
I wear an Evenstar necklace from Lord of the Rings, which I never take off.
Silent Witness is my escape. Years ago at school my nickname was Nikki, and my friend’s Harry. He was my Harry, and I was his Nikki… I suppose since then I’ve always used it as somewhere to escape reality, and I now know exactly which episodes to watch depending on my mood. My DVD’s have been watched so many times I’m surprised they still work actually. There's just something so perfect, and so unique between Harry and Nikki's characters, and yet the writers have me screaming at the TV with every new episode, when they get so close to being together... If it wasn't for Penny, I'm convinced they would be together by now :D But I suppose it makes for brilliant fanfiction :)
I own nearly 200 colours of nail varnish, and my nails are rarely all painted the same colour.
Music expresses that which cannot be said. Engraved on my iPod, and couldn’t agree more. I can listen to a song on repeat for months, and never become bored of it.
‘Ah, music… A magic far beyond all we do here!’
And to a certain extent, I suppose fanfiction has become one of my many obsessions :) I couldn’t imagine not being able to enter SW world through someone else’s writing now, and there are so many amazing writers that it’s easy to find a fic that can make you laugh when you thought it not possible, make you cry when that’s all you need to do, and make you desperate to find out what happens next, even though you know that everything is happening in your head (or theirs :D)
‘Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?'
I use smiles too much :D they just seem to fit… everywhere :p see! :)
And I promise, I’ll try to review EVERYTHING I read :D
If you managed to read all that, well done :p and thanks. It looks like I can’t write a short anything, never mind a one-shot :)
‘Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!’
(Yes, all quotes were Dumbledore’s… Or J K Rowling’s :D)
To anyone who read A Knight in Yellow Scrubs, below is a link to the end-to-end walk. Not very interesting I know, especially if you’ve never been to the Isle of Man :)
A Knight in Yellow Scrubs - multi chapter fic with an actual story line that just seems to keep getting longer :) I do know how it’s going to end, promise!
Alpha to Omega - A series of one shots that run in a timeline throughout Harry and Nikki's lives together. Some of them carry on from the last but can all be read independently. Just little bits that tie them together that some might notice :) LONG OVERDUE AN UPDATE! It will be soon!
Trick or Treat - Started as a Halloween four/five chapter fic, but not finished yet. Hopefully be updated soon though!
Broken Doll - A rather long one shot based after Bloodlines and on the song 'Broken Doll' by Paloma Faith :D
A Rose By Any Other Name - Harry and Nikki again :) Harry comforting Nikki after a visit from her dad
Your Second Chance - Because I felt like Leo had been left out :P Another post-Bloodlines fic, with Leo telling Harry how he feels. And some Harry/Nikkiness too :D
Words Cut Deeper- A short-ish one shot. Might be slightly confusing at the beginning, but should all make sense at the end :D
Resolutions - A one shot based around New Year's Resolutions. Harry/Nikki of course :D
The Protection of Friendship - I don't know if and when I'll carry on with this one, but who knows. I might get my inspiration back for it in the future :)
