LMSharp here! I'm a 20-something lit nut from the U.S. of A., just trying to make my way in a world where everything's changing so fast. I like to read, I like to write, and sometimes, when I have a bit of extra time, I spend that time writing fanfiction.
In my stories I try to be as true to the characters and the spirit of the work as I can. Beyond that you won't find anything in my stories that's incredibly violent, sexual, or profane. There is violence, there is romance, there is mild swearing, but I try to keep things classy. My fandoms are varied. If I've seen or read something that I like, I've probably written about it somewhere. What makes it on this site are the characters I understand and the plots (or ideas) that took off.
You'll find my writing falls into three genres. Novelizations, one-shots, and collections of one-shots related thematically and by character focus, organized into a loose chronology but without an overarching plot. Stories of the first type include The Sun on My Face, Trying Much, Loving More, The Edge of Light and Dark, and Defining the Jedi, but not my Defining the Jedi student series. Stories of the third type include all my Harry Potter fanfictions, as well as my Mass Effect series The Disaster Zone. All my other stories are one-shots.
You may feel reading my in-progress story The Disaster Zone that you've read it before. You're not wrong. The Disaster Zone is a revised repost of a story I started last year. While writing it, I frequently revised and changed characterizations and storytelling styles. The result was a disordered fanfiction with rampant typos, where the next update never showed up at the end when it was to be expected, but almost always somewhere else. I wanted to write about a disaster zone. I never wanted my writing to look like one. As such, I'm reposting the chapters revised and in their proper order, until the finished product is as beautiful as I want it to be. In addition to being cleaned-up and chronologically posted, the revised version of The Disaster Zone will include the names of the songs that inspired me while writing it, and illustrations I've done of various chapters on my new DeviantArt account SpaceSong.
Although the music and drawings might not be of any interest to my audience, they were very important to me while writing Disaster Zone, and could add some visual and auditory context to the experience.
Warning to regular readers of mine approaching The Disaster Zone, the fic was written in spirit with the Mass Effect games. The content is more adult than in my other works. There is regular use of stronger language, and more references to violence, drug use, and sexuality than is typical in my other fanfics. I won't whitewash the Mass Effect universe or censor its characters, so you'll find Disaster Zone a stronger T than I usually write. My Shepard is an Earthborn, Sole Surviving Infiltrator named Beth. Morality-wise, you could call her a Paragon with an edge. She eventually ends up with Garrus.
There may or may not be another Mass Effect fic in the pipeline for me. As I've explored the Mass Effect universe, I've grown more and more interested in the character of Garrus Vakarian, to point where he actually fascinates me more than Commander Shepard. The man that repeatedly abandons all that is expected of him to do what he thinks is right, the man that became Archangel and actually prepared the turian Hierarchy for the Reaper invasion, comparatively speaking, when all the rest of the galaxy was knocked for a loop, at the very least Shepard's second-in-command and constant support and possibly Shepard's partner in more than one sense of the word deserves his own story. I would like to write a novelization of Mass Effect 2 from Garrus' POV, but I'm having difficulty capturing his voice. All the heroines of my longer fanfics, from Muggle Thea Ramora to Beth Shepard, are somewhat self-generated--not self-inserts, but characters I created--save Aravis Tarkheena from The Sun on My Face, and I identify with Aravis closely enough that writing her wasn't an enormous problem. Garrus, on the other hand, has a preexistent character very alien to my own, even before considering turian culture. :) Before I commit to any project featuring Garrus, I want to know for certain I can do him justice. Just something to think about.
In the fanfictions I read I look for good spelling and grammar. I appreciate humor and metaphor and plots that both are true to the spirit of the work and contain something of originality. If your fic is truly awesome, or leaves me busting a gut laughing, or thinking really hard, I'll be sure to tell you so. I don't like slash where friendship is canon, nor do I like an excess of graphic intimacy or gratuitous language. But I can, and do, on occasion appreciate a well-written AU.
Personally I'm nerdy and quiet. I enjoy animated movies and classical music. And I love, love, love a good story.
Live, learn, and laugh, my friends. Write about it afterwards.
