Author has written 3 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, and Harry Potter.

Hey folks! Welcome to my profile! I'm Burn-it-to-the-Ground, your friendly neighborhood character torturer!

I mostly write/read angst or hurt/comfort fics, with a healthy dose of hope mixed in. I like angst because it provides a much deeper look at the characters, and helps me to understand them better. I also like action fics, and friendship fics. I’m not big on romance but I do like a few pairings.

And now it's random facts about me time!

I adore Avatar: The Last Airbender, Death Note, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and a multitude of other random books/movies/tv shows.

I love to randomly analyze characters. One of the joys of life is sitting down, thinking about a character, their problems, what could have created those problems, and so on. If you read any of my stories you’ll probably discover that I have quite the case on Zuko.

I have a dog named Zuzu, and two cats named Tori and Twin.

I live in the United States.

Fanfiction writing tips that I find helpful:

For goodness sake PLAN YOUR STORY OUT BEFORE YOU WRITE! I have tried to write making it up as I go before, and I always hit this inevitable writer’s block where I have no idea where I’m going. A lot of trouble can be saved if you just decide what you’re doing first.

Decide on an outline. This could be a list of basic events that you want to happen. You could either write this down, or keep it mentally, but I think it’s extremely helpful to have something to look at if you can’t remember where to go next.

Keeping a character in character is hard. One thing I think helps is writing out a list of attributes. You don’t have to think of many; just try to think of a few words that describe the character your writing. Then all you have to do is put those into the story.

Have the next chapter written. Post chapter one when you finish chapter two. Then write chapter three and post chapter two. Continue like that. It’s much harder to get stuck.

And that’s all I got for now.

And now I admit my hypocrisy. I failed to do many of these things, which is why my fic, the Path of Treachery, is currently on hiatus.

My fics:

Scars in your Eyes: Short oneshot, complete!

The Path of Treachery: Multi-chapter fic, on hiatus.

The Ashes Fell Like Snow: Oneshot. By far my least popular story. I plan to redo it eventually.

It was a mission of revenge. There weren't supposed to be any survivors, but Chief Hakoda couldn't bring himself to kill the Fire Nation boy. Against his better judgment, he brought him home. A Zuko joins the Water Tribe story.

The Ashes Fell Like Snow reviews
What does it mean to be the devil's lackey? Severus sees it in bloodstains on the wall, horrified eyes, a strangled heart. It's the twisted corpse on the floor, the lifeless face. The devil's slave. Only images can describe it. There are no words for this
