I'm Captain Clueless. Called so, because I have trouble reading between the lines, a tendency to zone out, the ability to boss people around, and in delusions of grandeur, like to imagine myself as a Knight in Sour Armour. I like Redwall, Ranger's Apprentice, Artemis Fowl, Good Omens, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Discworld, LOTR and the Hobbit the Chronicles of Narnia, Howl's Moving Castle (the book), the Bible, Tamora Pierce and most books. Lots and lots of books. I also like dancing, praying, laughing, and dogs.
I've just finished high school, and I'm looking forward to a year off before I start Uni. I'm hoping to actually finish a couple of projects (I know! Shock and horror!) Hopefully the Maid and the Marshall and one I'm starting for Song of the Lioness, The Wolves of Tirragen. Any readers have permission to bug me and nag me, because otherwise, I fear they will rust into discontinuation like the others.
1. The Maid and Her Marshall
Fandom: Gerald Morris, Squire's Tales
Summary: See story
Genres: Humour, romance, friendship, family. Fluff.
Intended length: Short.
Note: Yes, I'm going to give it another go. Beware, because there may be something of a change in style, between the first two chapters currently up and the third. Anyone in the fandom, feel free to nag me. Because otherwise, nothing will get done, much as it pains me to admit it.
2. The Wolves of Tirragen.
Fandom: Song of the Lioness (Tamora Pierce, Tortall)
Summary: In which a Player becomes a Guardswoman, Sir Myles finds hope, Hill Country is explored, and – For Want of a Nail – Alex of Tirragen does not become a traitor.
The nail in question?
If his mother had been born Leila bint Diyari of the Sleeping Lion.
Note: Written because a) I never understood his motivations for turning evil; b) just because someone's sneaky doesn't make them a traitor; c) I never liked the fact that the guy whose appearance is constantly described as "dark" becomes the traitor and d) I happen to have a thing for Tall, Dark, Handsome, Snarky swordsmen. Put this in a pot and leave it to simmer for a couple of years, and, well, I got this.
In which Clueless Apologizes for Unfinished and Discontinued Fics
The Official Fanfiction University of Maximum Ride: Guys, look, I'm sorry. When I started the story, I'd no idea of how much the series had gone away from the original. I'm sorry to defend the various Suethors and bad writers in the fandom, of which there are many, but I will say this: You can't expect people to write good fanfiction when the source material has become – well, crappy, in my humble opinion. And Maximum Ride went crappy after Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports. Maximum Ride has spiralled so far out of my comprehension there's no way I can write a decent Official Fanfiction University. Sorry, guys, but there it is.
Dotti and Milo: Guys. Guys. I'm so sorry, I know some of you (inexplicably enough) liked them, but really, I was fourteen when I worked on them and their universe in all of its chaos. I think I've outgrown Dotti and Milo, and there's no sense in going back to them now that what I'm capable of exceeds them. However, if anyone would like to adopt them and redeem them, PM me and I'll be all too happy to hand them on.
Jillaroo and the Sue: Also discontinued/complete. Mostly because the point had already been made. I hope you guys enjoyed it.
Clueless is on live journal at tomboylibrarian. Well. When she's there. She's also on archiveofourown as Captain_Clueless, where she writes about Alex of Tirragen, and about Steve Rogers. She may or may or not do more about the MCU. Why is this part in third-person? She doesn't know either.
