Author has written 15 stories for Heroes, Harry Potter, Supernatural, Sanctuary, Hobbit, Vikings, Defiance, and Star Wars Rebels.
Not really sure what to say here. I'm a fangirl with an overactive imagination. I've self-published 2 books of poetry, and I'm still working on a couple of nonfiction books. I've written a few short stories but most of my work is nonfiction, educational stuff. I've also written a lot of re-imaginings of old Greek myths, since my original work tends to be historical or outright Pagan in nature.
I've read fanfic for a long time, but i have never really written a lot. Anyway, this last few years have been really hard for reasons I won't get into, and one of the side-effects was that I stopped writing. At all. Long story short, I decided to start writing fanfic again to jump-start my creativity. And I'm posting them in hope of constructive criticism.
If anybody cares, my favorite shows, the ones I will most likely be writing fic for, are : Supernatural, Heroes, Sanctuary, Star Trek DS9, Star Trek VOY, Star Trek TNG, Dark Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Fringe, Legend of the Seeker, Game of Thrones, Vikings. For books its Lord of the Rings and Percy Jackson (tho I haven't finished the series yet), and maybe a few movies like Constantine, Equilibrium, Queen of the Damned, Star Wars some movies along those lines.
EDITED JANUARY 2018:
So my old profile from a decade ago was really obsessed with pairings, and while romance continues to drive most of fandom, I read a lot of action/adventure and character studies now in addition to the romance stuff. Plus I really love the various worlds that these stories are taking place in, as much as the characters. In light of that change, it seemed weird to have a list of pairings up here when I'm interested in good stories that involve more than just couplings, so I just removed it.

Because our brains brains chemically can't tell the difference between fictional characters and real-life friends. Psychologists will now admit that, chemically, we mourn for a character we are attached to that "dies" in the same way that we would a friend. Some one we personally know.But we crave it, these stories, even if they hurt us - its a part of us. A part of our make-up. This is normal human experience. Fanfiction is a way of continuing that "relationship" with new adventures, instead of just reliving your high school glory days when you dated the quarterback by just watching/reading the canon materials again. Human beings are storytellers. We have been storytellers since we gathered around our first firepits in the first caves. And we didn't all come up with own characters, but Homer and Hesiod and Snorri Snurlson told new stories about the Gods of their respective cultures, the characters and friends of their world.
So yeah, I write fanfiction in addition to my original work. And I'm not gonna be ashamed of it anymore.
Even the smutty stuff.
Because fanfiction is what makes us human.
