Author has written 17 stories for Avatar, and Harry Potter.

I don't like works that ignore a writer's original storyline; I feel that kind of destroys the point of fanfiction. There are, however, exceptions to the rule, and the one's I like are truly exceptional.

I'm not Harry Potter crazy; there are many far better works of literature out there, I write fanfiction to improve my writing. Once in a while though I read other people's stuff and mostly I enjoy it. I'm not a literature snob though; I enjoy anything with a good storyline. But the very best stuff makes you think deeply and wonder how someone could possibly have come up with that.

I like stories to do with the Marauders and decent portrayals of Teddy Lupin. I don't rate anything non-canon unless some serious thought, followed by very convincing writing has been put towards it. I'm mostly a Rowling writer on here, but I like exploring some Avatar stuff; it's nicely different.

Some books I'd recommend:

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (Edmond Dantes is my favourite character of all time)

Fight Club, Rant, Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk (just read them)

Glamorama by Bret Easton-Ellis (this will actually blow your mind)

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (simply enchanting)

"Advice to Other Writers
Check out the profile of DukeBrymin for eleven facts about fanfic. Every one of them is oh so true.
Check out "A Guide For Non-Brits Writing Harry Potter Fan-Fiction" by Pinky Brown. Read it carefully and make sure that you understand it. Especially if British English is not your first language. Citizens of the USA, this means you!" - taken from Northumbrian's profile, check out his writing and recommendations!

Well, enough from me for the time being, if you do read please review!
Oh, and disclaimer: I own nothing but the plot, maybe not even all of that!


A few of my favourite quotes that keep me going, for anyone who's interested:

"Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter." - Oscar Wilde

"You don't write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say." - F. Scott Fitzgerald

"Does the walker choose the path or the path choose the walker?" - Garth Nix

"If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world." - J. R. R. Tolkien

"We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will." - Chuck Palahniuk

One that I constantly think of: "This too shall pass." - Sanai

Oh, and just remember: "Illegitimi non carborundum."
