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. Thus far I've written on Merlin, The Chronicles of Narnia, Star Wars, and Harry Potter, but that doesn't mean I'm limited. 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. Sometimes I write plotless one-shots. Sometimes I write novels. You'll find both below.
My Merlin work consists of one-shots. Character studies, and one letter addressed to Morgana. All of them are outdated, written prior to the series finale. But I still like them, so they're still here. See Ignorance Is Bliss for a look into how Arthur could've viewed Merlin around Seasons 2 and 3. The Lies that Define Us is a Merlin character study, set post-Season 4. And Letter from an Amateur Villain is set mid-Season 5.
I've done some work with The Horse and His Boy. The Sun on My Face is a rewrite of the novel from Aravis' point of view, as well as speculation into what might have happened afterwards in Archenland. The Obligatory Self-Insert is just that.
With Harry Potter, I've worked a bit with the Marauders. On Lily and James is a series of insights into Lily's changing perception of James Potter, based on Sirius' and Remus' comments on it in The Order of the Phoenix, and by-the-way comments McGonagall and Hagrid made in different books. Making it Better a Little and After the End follow Remus Lupin from November 1981 through the eyes of a Muggle OC I named Thea Ramora. It's half almost-romance, half-friendship, and all about life and loss. I don't think I'm quite done in the HP fandom. I may find one day I have more to say. Those Marauders--well they're fascinating, aren't they?
Currently I'm working on a sort-of sequel to my KotOR novelization The Edge of Light and Dark. TEoLaD was my first fanfiction, focusing on the adventures of my Revan, Aithne Morrigan, during the Jedi Civil War. That story went AU at the end. My new work, Into the Gray, supposes that it didn't. In the Into the Gray universe, Aithne did leave for mysterious regions unknown, the Jedi are all gone, and my Exile, Darden Leona, is left to deal with the mess. It's a work-in-progress that so far I'm enjoying a lot.
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. I don't think I've ever gone a day in my life without singing, even when I've had laryngitis.
Live, learn, and laugh, my friends. Write about it afterwards.
