Author has written 27 stories for Harry Potter, Avatar: Last Airbender, Glee, and X-Men: The Movie.

Hey there, internet. Teacandles here. I'm a college student who's been a longtime reader of fanfiction, but a first-time writer. I thought that I'd make up for all of the lurking and reading I've done over the years and post something. You know, give a little, get a little. I've already gotten something, so now it's time to give back. Hopefully my contributions aren't terrible.

I read various things, but lately I've been on a bit of a Harry Potter and Avatar: The Last Airbender kick, so that's probably what you'll see from me. And Glee now. Glee has kind of consumed my life for the time-being.

If you happen to want to read more of my stuff, I've got stories posted over on my LiveJournal that I don't have up here (only some of it is cross-posted), so feel free to visit there if you're so inclined. And don't be afraid to point out errors on the stories I post on this site. I don't use a beta, so if you see something wrong, just let me know. I really appreciate it, and I don't bite. Promise.

Edit: Oh my gosh, I got fan art for my story Visions of Rain! You guys should check this out (though be aware, there's some blood).

Edit (5/4/11): Hey, guys. For those of you who read this, please take note (and believe me, I hate asking this because it probably makes me sound like a jerk): I love reading reviews from you all (sometimes your ideas are far better than anything I'd have ever come up with, and I adore feedback like nothing else), but please if you're going to leave an anonymous review, don't ask me a question. I try to reply to every question I get because I hate leaving people hanging, but if you're anonymous, I can't respond to you (the same, unfortunately, is true for users who block private messages for this site). If you wish to have me actually answer your review instead of deleting it (if you're anonymous), then please sign up for an account here and ask in a signed review (with the option for PMs turned on) or go bug me on my LiveJournal. I do accept anonymous comments there, so you don't have to have an account or log in to ask me a question, which you can leave on my masterlist or wherever else you please. I don't bite, and really, I'd be more than happy to to explain something if it comes across as confusing. It's just incredibly frustrating for me to see questions that I can't answer in any way, particularly if they're on a one-shot or a completed story. Thanks, and sorry if this came across as rude in any way. This is just something that stresses me out more than it should.

Another Brother by AvocadoLove reviews
It was a mission of revenge. There weren't supposed to be any survivors, but Chief Hakoda couldn't bring himself to kill the Fire Nation boy. Against his better judgment, he brought him home. A Zuko joins the Water Tribe story.

Second Nature by lazyartisan reviews
Destiny is a funny thing-Zuko's season 2 story arc takes a radical turn after he is captured at the North Pole. One event can change so much- and so little. Plotbending, character exploration and a grittier more realistic portrayal of the Avatar World.

Unseen Scars by toxic-dreamer-2 reviews
"I was 13," he replied, his voice taking on a sudden dark tone. "And it wasn't an accident." .Bitter words lead to an innocent question. ** Not a Romance. **

It's 1917. Erik knows he should kill the wounded British solider he found behind the lines, but for some reason he can't. The war can't last forever. AU. Character death.
