Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter, Star Trek: 2009, and Night Watch.
I'm a 24 years old MA student (majors: religious studies - Islam and Christianity) and a private English teacher (so if you discover any language mistakes, don't tell my students). I grew up with Harry Potter, literally: I was 11 when I started the first book and 18 when I finished the last one. I have a soft spot for all Black sisters, Andromeda being the least favourite and Bellatrix my favourite character ever. Narcissa comes a close second, though, after reading Memento Mori by coffeecupcakegirl, my favourite story of all time. If you haven't read it yet, off with you.
As far as male characters go, Severus Snape is a clear favourite, then nothing for a long time, then Bill Weasley, Kingsley Shacklebolt and Mad-Eye Moody, I guess.
Lately, I have a fondness for SSHGs (I might even publish one some day, I already started writing) and Severus-adopts-Harry, although I'm extremely picky about these.
I generally prefer post-Hogwarts and post-War fics, since I prefer adult characters; why I decided that Harry Potter is going to be my favourite series is anybody's guess, really.
I like to write drama and to use OCs to glue together various canon characters, even though paradoxically, I don't often read stories that are like this. Probably because the danger of Mary-Sue with OCs is so high.
I detest Marauders, and so I generally avoid that era; I genuinely like Next Generation, on the other hand.
Apart from Memento Mori, my favourite stories would be those by AriadneAWS and Loten. Yep, SSHG reader to the core, if not writer.
As per the release of the last StarTrek film, Into Darkness, I am also officially obsessed with Spock/Uhura. It's the new SSHG. Really, it has everything: an emotionally distant man (well, Vulcan) who has issues with his father, a student-teacher relationship (see the note bellow), mind reading...In this area I especially recommend The Logical Choice by writerfan2013.
There are also thinks I dislike in fanfiction. It's some pairings, like Snarry (considering Severus' romantic connection to Lily, it feels a bit too much like incest) or Spirk (it just seems like an insult to their friendship, like somehow assuming it couldn't be deep enough without some sex involved), or, more generally, blatant OOC (unless there's a good reason for it) and, most of all, casual AU. To explain, by casual AU I mean the author just couldn't be bothered to find out the basic canon facts. I personally don't write AU much, but I respect real AU as an interesting mental exercise - what would happen if this one thing turned out differently? Casual AU, however, just seems like laziness and arrogance of the author. Don't get me wrong, I don't expect hours of research for every drabble, but I do expect that long story authors would bother to at least check the relevant entries in the relevant Wikis. It takes like five minutes! So, yeah. I'm picky like that. So please, please, if you find anything contrary to canon in one of my stories that isn't explained in an AN (which I always do when I knowingly deviate from canon), let me know! I'm a canon freak, I can't just let it be! :))
See you around!
(Note: The obsession with student/teacher relationships is apparently not my fault. My grandmother married her high school teacher. It's in my blood.)
I'm currently working on Finding Balance, desperately trying to catch up, since I haven't really been writing that much the last couple of weeks. I have an idea for another sequel after that, and then for a couple of TOS stories with Spock. And perhaps for one Voyager story. And a one-shot with Spock and Sarek. And an Amanda/Sarek story...
Harry Potter stories seem to be on the sidelines for the moment. The main reason probably is that the core story of what I see as my main universe, Born to Fight, sorely needs a rewrite (it was my first long story), but it's 100 chapters long, so I somewhat lack the motivation. All the other stories from that universe tie up to that one, however, so there's no point in posting them before BtF. The original version, in all its dreadfulness, is at HPFF. Apart from that, I have an idea for a Founders' Era, a crossover, a couple of SSHGs and some other things. In other words, I certainly don't lack ideas. Not sure when I'll get around to turning them into reality, but at the very least, I'm planning on continuing my Severus and Hermione birthday series.
