Author has written 4 stories for Twilight, and Hunger Games.

I joined this site as a reader. If you have a good idea or a good narrative, I'm interested. I tend not to like brief one-shots, and I don't see the point in taking characters, changing them beyond recognition, and placing them in an AU. Why don't you just write your own, original story and publish it somewhere else?

I do welcome feedback of all kinds, including but not limited to: reviews telling me how to improve (e.g., "More dialog!"), reviews telling me I got some fact wrong ("You said the sun was shining that day, but it was rainy in the book!"), and Story-Alerting or Favoriting without leaving a review at all (because actions speak louder than words).


Stuff you can catch me reading:

J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series - Deathly Hallows (Book 7) is arguably one of the best books I have ever read.

Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice - I read it in 10th grade English and hated it. Then in 12th I read it again. Then again and again and again... *heart*

S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders and That Was Then, This Is Now - My favorite tragedies.

Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower - This book changed my life.

Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind - I cried like a baby.

Louise Rennison's Confessions of Georgia Nicholson series - Not exactly cranial writing, but v. entertaining!

Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games series - Poverty, riches, entertainment, violence, love, hate, teamwork, fear, revolution... they lack nothing. I am in love with these books. You probably noticed that by the fact that I fic them. ;)

Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls series - Like Georgia Nicholson, but with deeper plot and spy toys!

Delirium, Matched, Graceling... lots of dystopian fiction and "special skills" fantasy or pseudo-historical fiction, like Orson Scott Card's Alvin Maker series.

Ditched: A Love Story by Robin Mellom is hilariously adorable. It's like The Hangover, but with a girl who comes to on the side of the road in a prom dress and dyed-to-match shoes.

J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan - If you haven't read this as a "grown-up," you owe it to yourself to re-read. Barrie's portrayal of adulthood through the innocent eyes of a child is both bittersweet and heartily amusing.

That goes for the Anne of Greene Gables series from L.M. Montgomery, as well.

Kirsten Gier's Ruby Red trilogy - Time travel, mystery, romance, and ghosts are surprisingly hilarious in this brilliantly translated trio. And the leading lady is a Gwen!

I'm also trying to work my way through a good collection of Newbery Award winners.

I used to acknowledge here everyone who has left a review or added me or my stories to a favorites list. However, my THG fans have been so active that I can no longer keep such a list! Please accept my gratitude if you have been a faithful reader, left a comment, or had my updates sent to your inbox. It means a lot to me to know that I can create something that you enjoy, think about, or can advise me on.

User PPerfect has devoted way too much of her time to helping me tell my story with Smoke Rising. She is a fantastic correspondent as well as an intelligent, insightful, and imaginative woman. I am so lucky she left me that first review!

Also, I have found the following pages very useful:

- a huge Twilight fan site just overflowing with information, but the timeline is the thing I obsess over the most, and having found the site makes flipping through my books unnecessary!

- notoriously, the page bearing the various portions of Midnight Sun Meyer has made available to fans... I would have liked to have heeded her advice and stay out, but I read it first when I was going through Twi-drawals after devouring the books in two weeks, and I refer to it again and again while writing my fics.

- THE fan site for The Hunger Games. It has current news, random musings, and links to a bajillion fan fictions, many of which are right here on ff.net!

- The Hunger Games Wiki helps keep timelines and details straight without breaking a sweat.

Midnight Sun Continued by AllisCullen reviews
I pick up where Stephenie Meyer left off, in the edition of MS she posted on her website. She finished before the end of Chapter 12, which I think is part of Twlight chapter 13, and I just pick up there. ALL EPOV.

This is the story of what could have been and might still be. It picks up precisely at the end of Eclipse. How do you choose between two good things? Rated T for language and eventual sexual scenes. Canon with a gradual AU. Bella grows up!
