Author has written 11 stories for Skins, and Harry Potter.
I am what could be described as a "Silver Surfer"(!).
I live about 20 miles South of London and started watching Skins with the second season in the UK. This was after seeing the "Maxxie dancing" poster on a bus shelter. The first name that entered my mind when I saw it was Rudolf Nureyev.
After seeing the first episode, I obtained the first season DVDs & watched them. Like many others, I fell in love with Cassie.
After the second season ended I had to deal with withdrawal symptoms. I found www.fanfiction.net. I was disappointed with the really tragic endings to some of the Sid/Cassie stories. I registered with the site and commented on some of them.
I have written some happier stories about this lovely couple, although neither "Sweet Sorrow" nor "Heartbreak on Brandon Hill" are exactly cheerful.
More recently. I have been attracted to Neville and Luna as a special couple. In "Changing Partners", I have brought them in to help bring Sid and Cassie back together.
My 'Skins' and 'Harry Potter' stories (in order of occurrence within the 'Skins' universes):
A Chance Encounter: Sid meets Cassie on Brandon Hill between Abigail's party and Michelle's. They realise that they are attracted to each other.
Heartbreak on Brandon Hill: Jal explains to Cassie what actually happened at Tony's choir concert and reassures Cassie that Sid does love her.
Sweet Sorrow: An account of the night time meeting on Brandon Hill after Anwar's party. They declare their love for each other before their tearful farewells.
The Golden Halo: This is an 'Alternative Universe' story. Instead of going to South Wales, Sid stays at home. He is in his house when Cassie calls. They have sex and make up their differences.
First Date: This story (still not yet complete!) is set during the time Chris is in Hospital following his 'warning' bleed (end of S2 E8). Cassie wants to spend a long time with Sid away from the 'gang'.
Manhattan: This story has been rendered 'Alternative Universe' by the advent of Skins PURE. It describes Sid finding Cassie in New York, their week of bliss and their joyous homecoming.
Clifton Bridge: This is also now 'Alternative Universe' due to PURE. Sid finds Cassie intending to throw herself off the Clifton Suspension Bridge. He talks her out of suicide and they settle their problems over a coffee. It was actually written because I felt guilty proof reading my stories in our local Caffè Nero while referring to Starbucks, so I had to think of a scenario where Sid and Cassie would visit Caffè Nero in Clifton. While writing this one, I was approached by a charity collector for the Samaritans. I had to give!
Oblivion: This is post PURE. Sid has returned to Bristol, but is still heartbroken over losing Cassie. He encounters Jakob's 'Oblivion' website and knows he HAS to find her. He contacts Maxxie. This was written in parallel with "Caterina". Revised in April 2015 with an epilogue, which brings Sid and Cassie together for all time.
Caterina: This was written in response to a forum post from a contributor in Australia (Sweetcheeks644) requesting a story about Maxxie and a girl. It was originally called Francesca, but during a comment exchange with Danielle Jadelyn on YouTube, she said that 'Water Bottle Girl's' name was Katie in the script. Calling her 'Katie' would bring confusion with the older Fitch twin. Since I feel that she looked Italian, I have renamed her 'Caterina' Her full name being: Caterina Maria Cassini. It was written in parallel with 'Oblivion'. I realised when re-reading it that the first two chapters told the story of the first verse of Men at Work's song "Down Under". "...Head full of zombie, I met a strange lady, she made me nervous. She took me in and gave me breakfast". (!)
Changing Partners: I have been exploring some of the Neville/Luna stories within Harry Potter and am finding more and more parallels between Luna and sweet Cassie; also Neville and Sid. This was written as a crossover story involving both couples set after the time of 'Skins - PURE' Both pairings bring an awkward, shy boy into a relationship with a beautiful, eccentric girl who is thought to be slightly crazy. Sid meets Luna and Neville meets Cassie. Everything gets sorted out at a conference. In this story, there are several cultural references. Obviously I include Skins and Harry Potter. In addition there are oblique references to Watership Down, Downton Abbey and a number of songs.
Jackdaw's Castle: This is an offshoot from "Changing Partners" and is posted as a 'Harry Potter' story. It concerns the reunion between Luna and Neville at the Highclere Castle conference.
