Author has written 5 stories for Inheritance Cycle, and Harry Potter.
Hello! I'm Scylla's revenge (no need for real names on the Internet!).
I'm currently a college student who likes to procrastinate by reading fanfiction and attempting to write my own rather than do my homework or plan for the future. Oh well. This is good practice for me as a writer. It's probably also helpful seeing other people's really good (much more successful and well written) stories, right?
I'm a huge reader and daydreamer, and love anything to do with fantasy, mystery, comedy, or romance. Sadly most of the stories I've started in the past I've kind of given up on. I've improved a lot in my writing and general creativity since then, and I just didn't like where they were going anymore. So as for my current stories:
How Galbatorix Stole Christmas- Inheritance Cycle: Galbatorix hates Christmas and decides to steal it, with the help of Shruikan wearing reindeer antlers and Murtagh's excellent sewing abilities. Stupid? Yes. Written in about half an hour? Yes. My favorite Eragon story I've written so far? Yes! I may add another chapter to this someday, if inspiration strikes me. :)
Sail the Ocean Blue- Inheritance Cycle: Kind of a future-alternate universe in which Galbatorix had won the war and the rest of the Varden must search for a new hope across the ocean. This was waaay too ambitious of a story for me to start when I did. While I still like what I have so far, I don't have any plans to continue it any time soon. Sorry!
Wandering Path and Bolt of Lightning- Inheritance Cycle: My original story starring Corliss, Varden spy who meets Eragon, Murtagh and Saphira on their way to the Beor Mountains. I'm also relatively happy with what I do have for this story, but I'm definitely not continuing it. I've kind of rebooted my original character from this one, Corliss, and am using her (almost in name only, since she's changed so much) for my newest story.
Turning Point- Harry Potter: a small story I wrote very quickly about Snape in his school years, and his dying relationship with Lily Evans. It's definitely better in my head than it is on the screen. Still pretty proud of it though.
Illusions- Inheritance Cycle: Corliss (newly rewritten), a half-dwarf thief, is captured in her latest mission for the Varden, and discovers that everything she was ever taught about the Empire and the King was a lie.This ismy newest story, and pretty ambitious as far as my writing skills go, but I'm pretty confident I can make it work if I have the time. Corliss is definitely much better in this one. I'm really excited to see where it's headed. This also may be the only one of my stories so far you can count on updates for.
A bit about me real quick:
I love to learn languages, first of all. Italian mostly, but also Spanish. If I could pick a superpower I'd probably pick something like speaking every language on earth.
I love to watch movies, but I also really love analyzing them. Is that weird? I don't know. I like to see what they say about our society, or the way the filmmakers perceive things in the world. I also love learning about the special effects and behind-the-scenes extras. Let's just say those extra discs in the Lord of the Rings DVD sets are heaven.
I love to travel. Someday I'm going to live really far away and be married to someone with a gorgeous accent and I'll speak a million languages and eat weird food and lose my Texan accent and develop some other weird accent that will confuse all my friends from back home when they see me after I've been gone for ages...what was I talking about again? Oh yeah.
I love to read, obviously, and when I'm asked my favorite book I get this glazed look in my eye and can't answer. But a short list would be:
the Harry Potter series
the Lord of the Rings trilogy (and the Hobbit!)
Pride and Prejudice
The Bartimaeus Trilogy, by Jonathan Stroud (criminally under-appreciated. Go read them, right now!!)
Basically anything by Jonathan Stroud (yes, he's sometimes in the youth section of the bookstore, but don't let that discourage you. Go read his books NOW!)
So nice to have my profile updated again. You know how you stop looking at your profile for ages, then randomly come back to it, and it's full of stuff you liked four years ago, spelling mistakes, and old surveys, quotes and chain message things that you thought were super cool and fun at the time? And it kind of makes you feel sick to your stomach? No? Tell me that doesn't just happen to me. Oh, God, the embarrassment.
