Poll: Should I Rework/Expand my Lady Adye Series to integrate my one-shot collection and Rogue One companion into the three main stories? Vote Now!
Author has written 15 stories for Legion, Lord of the Rings, A song of Ice and Fire, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Captain America, and Thor.
Public Service Announcement (teehee) Their Lady Adyé is live! There are 34 of them and counting!! Shorts will be posted to it as they are completed! So keep an eye out on Mondays! There may be a new one coming your way!
The Ghost is still going strong and still officially posting every Friday. Let's see if support for it will help me write faster... ;) I have around 119 chapters finished or just about so, but we're still a bit from it being complete...it's all up to my lovely readers to keep me inspired, I suppose!
The Revisions for Lady Adyé: The Resistance Commander are wrapped!! All previously posted chapters have been pulled and I have started reposting the Revised Chapters. So if you want to know more about Athara's daughter Ana and read about her experience throughout the events of Episode VII and beyond, just scroll down to the "My Stories" section and give it a look! Don't forget to favourite and follow!
And, in case anyone is interested, I have the intros to two of my original works posted on FictionPress, Inkitt and Wattpad (all under DarkLadyAthara) called "Tabitha" and "Storm Aeye". I'd love it if any of you would take a look and give me some feedback!
And hey! I'm on Twitter. @ DarkLadyAthara. Check it out!
A Lady Adye Project? Eventually?
So before this sudden and increased outpouring of one-shots from my muse bludgeons my brain into making a rash labour, time and work-intensive decision, someone should really talk some sense into me...
I don't know why, but in the last little while, as more and more of my planned Lady Adye one-shots have been moving from the 'Idea' file into the 'In Production' and 'Complete' files, I have been struck with the idea of actually and genuinely integrating most, if not all of them, into the three main stories of my Lady Adye series properly. Chronologically. Expansively. Completely.
As in, (for example) Neva's posted one-shot would become the prologue for 'Lady Amalia' and the planned one for her that I've been working on would be integrated into the story proper.
In the case of Lady Obscura? I am seriously considering expanding Athara's main story to include not just her childhood and the Rogue One companion story, but to also reach beyond the end of Episode VII to end just before the Prologue of Ana's story kicks things off.
And I'm not just talking about Athara and Neva PoV chapters. I mean all of them (save spoiler-y ones...maybe...)
Ana's story would be the only one to remain unaffected, really.
So all of you out there who've read the Lady Adye Series, weigh in! It wouldn't happen for a while. I'd want to get a lot more of my planned one-shots completed first, naturally. Not to mention the other stories I've got on the go!!
Yay? Nay? I'm insane? Well...yes...I know that one already...
And you know what? Let's put it to a vote too. Pop a Yay or Nay up above!
MCU Series Rant Times...
Ugg...my brain needs to stop...First I come up with (ages ago, mind) a story for Loki and an OC...Then Tony Stark and another OC (Briana)...
Then Please Stay and Iris/Bucky happens...and The Ghost and Nadine/Steve comes out of that...and all of them decide they want to exist in the same story-verse. Fine. That's okay. I can work with that...
Well, then my brain decided that Tony should have a younger sister named Meg/Margaret (named after Howard's good friend Peggy...naturally), and that she should be Loki's OC. I roll with it since I'm not writing that one yet and it could potentially solve a few plot problems in that one...
But then my wonderful irritating brain says 'yeah, Bruce/Natasha is cute, but that idea you had a while ago about Irina (yet another OC) and Bruce is much better, so go with that instead.' Again...I decide to roll with it...only for my brain to pick up on random Natasha/Sam vibes and posit that Nat really needs a 'happy ending' and deserves a little love since everyone else is getting a pairing.
Only now...*groan*...my head is deciding to say 'nah, we're still not 100% sold on Maggie pairing with Loki...what about an OC named Hanna for him...oh, but we want to keep Meg and maybe pair her with Sam.'
And all I can think to counter it is 'what about Natasha?'
So as it stands, my brain is (for the moment) set on the following OC pairings in my ever-growing story-verse:
Loki/Meg (or Hanna)
Sam/Natasha (or Maggie)
Which means at least five interconnected MCU stories...not counting my Dear Bucky letter-fic...
My head hurts...yet, hitting it against a desk for being far too independent is sounding very good right now...
If anyone has any thoughts, I am totally open to listening, sharing, chatting, swapping...anything, really...though spoilers would de a distinct risk if you open that door...
Okay. Rant over.
I figured it out! Meg's getting her own OC! See below for detail. It's certainly something I've never seriously done before... And OC/OC pairing...
And it'll draw us up to six stories!
...oh boy...why do I keep doing this to myself...
So it'll be:
Meg Stark/tbaOC (probably Michael Ellis)
Rant actually over now...I think...
About My Stories:
I have been writing Fan Fictions for a while now but have only managed to completely, 100% finish a paltry few of the dozens I have floating around in my head...:P
Currently on the go, but not finished yet, are Lady Adyé: The Resistance Commander (or 'Part Three', as I've been affectionately referring to it as) of my Lady Adye Trilogy, a collection of companion one-shots to my primary Star Wars fic, Another Star Wars fic that may or may not link up with my Lady Adye Trilogy (and maybe another story after that), another two Lord of the Rings fics minimum, a Harry Potter fic, A Game of Thrones story, another three Marvel C.U. fics (eventually), a Legion Sequel (maybe), a Stargate story plus oneshot, a Vikings fic, another Song of Ice and Fire one-shot (or two) and anything else that catches my fancy. See below for more on In the Works Projects.
My only problem is that I told myself a long time ago I wouldn't publish anything that wasn't at least mostly done . . . unfortunately that counts just about all of my stories. They will all eventually make it here though. :D
Here's hoping at least.
Also, if anyone is interested, I have the intro to two of my original works-in-progress posted on FictionPress, Wattpad and Inkitt, all under DarkLadyAthara, called Storm Aeye and Tabitha. I'd love it if you'd hop over there and take a look, give me some feedback, maybe a vote (on the sites that allow them, of course)! I'm hoping to eventually publish both of them, so any feedback would be amazing!
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions :)

I've been mulling this over for a while now, and I think that, in the theoretical not to distant future, I would like to re-write the Star Wars Prequels. If you're reading this, you're probably thinking 'whaaa? Why?" and then following said reaction with "They're terrible," or "they're already great!" or something along those lines, but bear with me.
I, personally, quite liked the Prequels. BUT I can generally agree with some observations about things that were mishandled, poorly done or just outright bad *cough, Jar-Jar, cough*. I also disagree with some of those opinions. Yet I also firmly believe that there were quite a lot of good things too that the haters tend to miss, either because they're too busy on the bad or willfully ignoring the good. My ultimate belief, and I have said this to anyone and everyone who will risk having a Star Wars conversation with me, is that the first and last problem with the Prequel Trilogy is that it is unfinished: I can hear it now, "whaaaa? George thought that about the originals and look at the mess he almost made there!" I know, hear me out. Everything that I personally find 'wrong' with the Prequels could have, in my opinion, been fixed with editing...and different directing and less overwhelming cgi, but still... The Screenplay could have used at least one more edit, and possible the help of an actual editor/additional screenwriter. A few scenes one more take. The final films a little tightening up and/or cutting and/or leaving in of deleted scenes. Really, Lucas needed someone (or several someones) looking over his shoulder through the whole process with the guts to say 'really? I think that line needs a little tweaking,' or 'really? don't you think this something or other fight/establishing shot/scenery shot is a bit redundant?'
My point is, the Prequels have the bare bones and the building blocks to have been really quite fantastic for everyone. There were so many amazing and wonderful elements that just scream 'Star Wars." Of course there would have still been haters - no way would they have been able to compete on a level field with the Originals purely because of the nostalgia and originality factors, and people would have found things to hate purely for that unwavering devotion to the Originals. But even with their flaws, many as there may be, the extreme hate for them even now is just silly and, honestly, embarrassing for the franchise.
I've been thinking on this a lot recently since, with the imminent arrival of Episode VII, the hate for the Prequels have been amping up again, mostly because people are using them in declaring their hope that the new trilogy will be 'better' and more in line with the Original Trilogy than the Prequels supposedly were. This potential re-write is a pet project that I'd really like to take on at some point. I have several ideas and have a number of the 'major fixes' somewhat worked out or at least considered.
It would not be linked with my existing Star Wars stories, as it would be what, I think, the movies could have been with that little extra attention and editing. But in written form...of course.
Who knows if it'll ever even happen.
If you managed to make it through that, and you have any thoughts or comments, I'd love to hear from you!
Upcoming "In the Works" to be Published when Finished:
I DO NOT BEGIN PUBLISHING STORIES ON FANFIC.NET UNLESS THEY ARE COMPLETED!
Personally, I hate it when I get into a story I'm reading and the author decides to abandon it. I vowed never to do that. So, unless I have finished it, or have a reasonable (read 99.99 to 100%) certainty I will be able to complete it in the near future, it will stay in this section. The only somewhat exception is my Pirates Fic, only because it felt done when I posted it. I still have some vague ideas for future snippets, so I may add them later, but for now that story is finished, hence why it has been published. Similar situation with my Lady Adye series of One-shots, which, being one-shots, are essentially individual entities rather than a chapter-based story, so they will go up as they are completed, likely on the first Monday after I finish them, just to keep the Monday thing going :)
Okay, fine...and the second big exception is Ana's story...but that's an anomaly...a BIG anomaly...see the note on Lady Adye: The Resistance Commander for the explanation on that one... ...fine, and The Ghost too...that one I got over excited...
Their Lady Adye (Star Wars)
A series of one-shots that take place during, before or after the "Lady Adyé" trilogy, which centres around Neva, Athara and Ana Adyé. Most of these one-shot will be alternate PoVs/scenes that, for one reason or another, didn’t make it into "Her Jedi", "Little More than a Shadow" and an, as of yet, unnamed third instalment. Featuring Luke, Han, Obi-wan, Vader, Leia, Qui-gon, even Neva and Athara themselves. They will not be written or posted in chronological order.
Hey, it's happening! Basically a series of drabbles and one-shots that are essentially ideas/scenes that I couldn't work into the main stories for reasons of flow or that I couldn't quite conceive of them from Neva or Athara's PoV, given that the main stories are solely from their perspectives. It'll likely end up being posted Mondays in the same manner as Filia Maris, where I will write a bunch, start posting them, and add new one-shots if they come to me. At my last tally, I've got a TON more either in conceptual stages, in progress, nearly completed and even a few 'finished' ones!! Sadly, a few of them, including several of the 'completed' ones, will have to wait to be posted until specific parts of Ana's Story go up...for obvious reasons, I'm sure (*cough*spoilers*cough*) Which makes me rather sad, since I really want to share them! Anyway...stay tuned!!
TLA 01/24/18 Update: So, for the sheer sadistic hell of it, I just worked out how many Lady Adye One-Shots I would have if, right this moment, I were to have them all magically completed and ready to post, Interludes and vague ideas I want to do included.
As of this update, I have 87 One-shot ranging from complete and posted (34) to the vaguest of ideas that I feel I HAVE to do.
I am insane...
So all of you fearing I won't be posting anymore? Ha! You're cute.
TLA 07/26/18 Update: Okay, so, in light of my (stupidly ambitious) decision to (eventually) rework my Lady Adye Series to expand and integrate TLA and LO:aROS properly into the main trilogy, I am currently unsure about how much further I am going to take TLA on its own. I have a couple that are ready and in the wings to be posted, but they're on hold because of the spoilers they hold for later on in Ana's story. So stay tuned, lovelies. We'll see what happens.
Instalment #34, Recounting the Family History, is now posted.
Untitled Star Wars Fic (Star Wars)
Unlike her cousin Luke, Sara Lars was perfectly content on Tatooine, helping her parents with their moisture farm and waiting for her boyfriend Biggs to come home so they could start their future together. But then two droids show up and catapult Sara into a galactic adventure right alongside Luke, and Sara must somehow manage to survive a new life she never wanted
My mind is silly...I pretty much finish what I can work on for Part Three/Episode VII, and think 'hey, now I can get a few more Lady Adye One-shots done, I can move onto one of my original projects'...but my brain says nah, we're having so much fun with Star Wars, here; have another character: Her name is Sara, she's Luke's cousin, she's with Biggs and here's her story up through Episode IV and some of Episode V. Have fun -_- Oh well. So Sara's going to have a story now too.
The poll has closed, the results are in and voila! A decision has been made! I want to send out a huge thank you to the 20 people who stopped by to leave a vote. I’ll be honest, I really was torn over which way to take my story-verse, but your support really helped solidify my decision.
And what decision was that?
Sara Lars, the OC I have making a (little) bit of a ruckus up in my head, will not be part of my Lady Adyé Story-verse. For the longest time I wanted her to be and even had some of the integration planned out (ie, the alternate version of Beru's one-shot in Their Lady Adyé that included an adorable wee Sara).
However, with the appearance of my ideas for a ‘What If’ story for Athara, Sara became a complication to that. I probably could’ve made it work, but I honestly didn’t want to. And it seemed a good portion of you agreed, with the poll closing at 13-7 in favour of Sara’s story staying separate from the Adyés.
So Sara’s going to be off in her own little Story-verse. Who knows…maybe I can even figure out a way to save Bodhi for her :P lol!
Lady Obscura: Balance of Choice (Star Wars)
I really need to stop...or rather...my brain needs to stop. I'm musing over my Rogue One story at work and BOOM: what if we do a 'what if' story! *facepalm* As if I don't already have enough stories on the go...
The gist? The plan? The Idea? What if, instead of forbidding Athara to go to Tatooine to retrieve the Death Star Plans, Vader agrees with Athara and sends her to the planet's surface...well, it would change everything, of course...else, you know, it wouldn't be much of an idea, tbh...*le sigh*
Again, we'll see if this ever gets off the ground, but considering how much I already seem to have mapped out in my head so far... I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on this!! Please, someone! Message me and convince me it's a bad idea! My brain is going to explode...
...also, despite trying NOT to think on it...I may have a title...I present Lady Obscura: Balance of Choice (unofficially, for the moment, at least)
Untitled Star Wars Fic (Star Wars)
Kylo Ren is a lone agent of destruction, a separate, lonely entity within the First Order he is bound to serve. But an unexpected connection with a First Order seamstress - whose job it is to mend frayed edges and torn seams - might just hold the key to his redemption. Ben Solo/OC
Oh, God...please stop me... Why is it that, when I'm trying desperately to work on ALLLLLLL my other stories - several of them already Star Wars - another one always inevitably invites itself to the party? It happened when working on Force Awakens (Sara's story materialized) and with Rogue One (Balance of Choice...) and now this. A Kylo Ren story.
Gist of this one? Not a whole lot to go on, at this point, but thanks to the 'Laundry' scene and the random musing that someone would have to create and likely mend Ben/Kylo's (admittedly awesome) garments, our as of yet unnamed OC would be a garment officer or something in the First Order - likely stolen away as Finn was, perhaps even part of the Stormtrooper training program of Hux's and sent into specialization in garments...or something...and relationship develops and she started nudging him back toward the light, blah blah, journey to redemption, blah blah, romance, you get it :P
...the question now is whether or not this one should be part of the Lady Adye story-verse. I have to be honest, I can totally see it...
But yeah, development still ongoing...though hopefully not for a while yet as I am still hip deep in at least another half-dozen actively writing stories...I do have a few awfully poignant scenes from the climax already flitting around in my head, though...
Untitled Game of Thrones Fic (GoT)
With her village destroyed and her parents dead, Elen and her little brother Olly find themselves dangerously alone in the Gift. While Castle Black offers the potential of a safe haven, it's not exactly a safe place for a girl. But for a boy? And with winter coming, Elen is running out of options. Jon Snow/OC
This one hit me like a bag of rocks when Season 6 started, so even though I never planned on writing an O/C-centric Game of Thrones fic, well, here I am. And I say "Game of Thrones" rather than "A Song of Ice and Fire" because I'm going TV-verse on this one. Not that I won't be drawing on supplementary material from the books to flesh things out, but I'm following the show on this one. It was going quite quickly...but then Captain America: Civil War happened...and Bucky...
Untitled Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Fic (SoIaF/GoT)
Tywin Lannister is a practical man. When his preferred heir vows himself to the Kingsguard, he refused to settle for Tyrion as Jaime's replacement. So he does what few thought he'd ever agree to do: he remarries. Lenore has a tough road ahead of her. Carving out a place for herself at Casterly Rock will not be easy, not when she lives in the shadow of Tywin's lost love and his dazzling daughter. But find her place she must, and in doing so, she just may find a place for herself in Tywin's heart.
Why does this keep happening to me...here we go. Another idea. And don't ask me where this one came from. I have no idea. We'll see when (and if) this one takes off. Not sure yet which series it'll be based off of, books or show, but we'll see. I just need to figure out house and some more background first, I believe...and, you know...find some time...
Untitled OC Fic (MCU)
No summary I can share yet, but since the question has finally been brought up over in the Reviews for The Ghost, I'm going to make an official entry here:
Nina and Iris are getting their own mini story. Yup! You heard that right. I'm sure a few of you discerning and clever readers who've read both The Ghost and Please Stay can probably make an educated guess about the whens and wheres of this upcoming short, but in the interests of preventing Spoilers, I'm not going to divulge much, just yet. Just that it's gonna happen!
So stay tuned!! :D
Untitled MCU OC/OC Fic (MCU)
Meg and Tony had never been close. Technically, he'd been her guardian when their parents were killed, but he was certainly not guardian material. So once she could go, she was gone. But then something happened in Afghanistan. The last thing she expected when she got Pepper's call was to end up reconnecting with her estranged big brother over the whole thing or to be drawn into the world of Superheros and SHIELD. Or connecting with a rather dashing CIA agent... OC/OC; 'Tony's Little Sister' story.
Very temporary Synopsis...
So Meg, the bizarro but weirdly compelling idea of an OC who is not just Meg...but Margaret Stark (though she'd go by something like Meg/Margaret Carbonell or Collins; Maria Stark's maiden name according to the MCU wiki) wouldn't let me rest. She wants to be in my story-verse too (still trying to come up with a name for that...btw) But she wasn't quite jiving with Loki to me. But he seemed the most suitable and any other idea just didn't click or was already paired (thought about a Bruce/Meg pairing for a few minutes there...)
But then at work one day, boom. There it was. My solution...though I still sometimes I hate my brain...making things even more complicated... -_- ...Meg's getting an OC of her own. Name tba, (Though we're pretty much sure it'll be Michael Ellis, atm) since I haven't settled on it yet, but he's going to be either an MI6 or CIA agent (who looks suspiciously like Richard Armitage or Luke Evans depending on my brain ;) ...go figure) who's been sent to debrief Tony after his escape from the 10 Rings. Meanwhile, Meg will have just made it 'home' thanks to Pepper reaching out to her despite not being on the friendliest of terms with dear big brother Tony. And it'll go from there on through the Iron Man films and beyond. We'll see how far. It may end up merging with Briana's story after IM3. Thoughts? Feel free to PM me! If there's one thing I like doing, it's talking about my projects and ideas :P
I may also be integrating a rather compelling alternate idea for the Mandarin's attack on Tony's house as posited by Nando v Movies over on Youtube. So some canon divergence will be likely...moreso than Meg's existence already implies, of course. ;)
Untitled Tony/OC Fic (MCU)
Post 'House Party,' Tony said he was done. But it's not so easy to turn off, and that proved too much for Pepper. So what does Tony do? Falls back on his old ways: sarcasm, philandering and Iron Man. Enter one Briana Ainsley; pizza waitress and so not interested. Besides, what could she possibly offer him anyway besides forbidden pizza...and a friend? TS/OC
OC's name subject to change, but it's fairly certain at this point in time. This has been in my head for quite a while. We'll see how long before I can get anything substantial written. However, Briana is now officially integrated into the same story-verse as The Ghost, Please Stay, and my Loki/OC story. She's even made her first appearance. ;) But her story itself is still in the very early stages, really; lots of scenes in my head, but a generally complete idea of where it's going. I'm pretty sure I have it worked out how she's gonna fit into AoU and CW, though, so it's most definitely promising, so far.
Untitled Loki/OC Fic (MCU)
When Hanna Warren went into work at Stark Tower that day, the last thing she expected was to be part of an Alien Invasion. Neither did she expect to catch the interest of one very messed up God of Mischief who decided it would be crueler to let her live. She really didn't expect to become his source of amusement as he languished away in a cell on Asgard. And there was no way she could have ever dreamed that he would ever become one of the most important people in her life...or her of his. Loki/OC,
Again, OC's name subject to change, but again, quite unlikely at this point...though I am considering Calla for some strange reason... This one's been in my head the longest, and was also the only one for a time to reach back to Phase One, even if it is only the tail end. But it's also proving the hardest to get down. Like Tony's story, we'll see how it goes. Same issues, really. Basic idea mapped, etc, etc. Thor: Ragnarok complicated things for a time, but I think I have most of the major kinks ironed out. Will probably be integrated with the rest of my MCU series, but I don't know precisely how much I'm going to have to do so far as integration, yet...
Oh, and for this story, my one-shot (ultimately three-shot) A Child of Two Worlds will be considered canon. So might as well catch up on that. ;)
Untitled Bruce/OC Fic (MCU)
Before Betty, there was Irina. A scientist like Bruce, they grew close while she was in the States for college. But she had to go home to Russia, and it ended. But then the Accident happened, and Bruce was suddenly on the run, and he ran to her for help. But he couldn't stay, and it ended before it could truly start again. But when someone decides to look into his past for leverage? It means trouble for Irina. Bruce/OC
We'll see if this one makes it off the ground. I actually have a basic plot, but little in the way of details. Lots of decisions yet to make, but the basics are there. The biggest question remaining...to integrate with my other stories or not...I weirdly kind of like Natasha/Bruce, you know...but recently I've been growing rather fond of Natasha/Sam. No idea why. It just sort of happened. So Natasha/Bruce may end up being a failed attempt, paving the way for my Bruce/Irina story to possibly, maybe work. Who knows. We'll see. Or...thanks to Thor:Ragnarok...this might just be off on its own, disregarding the events of T:R unless I can reconcile Bruce/Hulk's trip to Sakaar with my plan for him to go to Russia after Sokovia...
Untitled MCU OC/? Fic (MCU)
This one just hit me...I have no idea what will come of it or if it will even be a part of my Ladies of Marvel Series (or if it'll even get written at all...) but the gist so far is a team of scientists, including the main OC, Corie, stumble across one of the 'Portals' Loki liked using to bounce around the Galaxy without the Bifrost and find themselves in Asgard. That's it. That's all I've got so far. Make of it what you will...I know I can't make much of it yet... :P
Untitled Clint/OC Fic (MCU)
In an AU where Laura Barton isn't Clint Barton's wife, but his sister looking after his kids after his wife's death, meet the Lena, the agent that has him learning to love again. CB/OC
This is another one that hit me like a bag of rocks...like an arrow? We're not going there...most likely pre-Avengers, at the start, at the very least. Lena's going to be a S.H.I.E.L.D. Analyst. Barton is Barton and wonderful. Nat's going to be, who else, meddling and Nat.
I'm starting to think I need a story idea intervention, lovelies...
Obviously, since I've already established Laura as Clint's wife in my main MCU series, this one will be a separate entity, off all on its own.
Untitled Harry Potter Fic (Harry Potter)
Melaina Prince is the last direct heir to the Prince family, a family that has dark allegiances. Growing up with only the support and affections of her cousin Severus and Uncle Lucius, she is surprised to find an ally in a Weasley, especially with the outbreak of the Second Wizarding War. Old prejudices are challenged at every turn...on both sides.
I have characters and a general plot in my head!! Sort of. I'm still hemming and hawing over the pairing being Bill Weasley/OC or slight Fred/OC later George/OC (the one I'm leaning toward given all the angst that would come out of it...plus with Bill I would need to find a way to get rid of/work around Fleur...) A great deal subject to change!! Save names. She is staying Melaina and a Prince...and she is staying Snape's cousin and Lucius's niece...though Sirius and a Black connection are trying to work its way in there...and a Dolohov link? Maybe a little brother or sister...My brain is stupid...
What Will Happen Will Happen (Harry Potter)
I'm laying this one wholly at the feet of the Death Eater Express...you've all had a bad influence on me. It started with the discovery of Caminal's The Minister's Secret, which led to joining the DEE and culminated with a 'have you seen this story' post. And boom. New story idea... It is inspired by laumirot's My Little Dragon and will likely be influenced by two of the greatest (imho) HP time-travel stories ever, Shayalonnie's The Debt of Time and The Minister's Secret. I can only endeavour to write a story even half so incredible as either of their master-works.
So here it goes...we'll see if this one ever gets written...
The gist will be that, at beginning her Eighth Year, Hermione, through a chance of circumstance, becomes privy to the newly discovered secret that Draco is not, in fact, Narcissa's son with Lucius. And as circumstance and fate continues to conspire, she finds herself thrown back in time...Cue the casual time-loop story. In doing so, a chain of events is launched that will see her coming to see Severus Snape as a brother, learning to love a young Lucius Malfoy and discovering that she, in fact is Draco's real mother...meanwhile, those she left behind in the present come to realize just what has happened and the implications.
There's still a lot to work out - like htH she's going to be travelling through time in the first place and how to reconcile Narcissa's canon actions with her role in this story - but I have the gist of it worked out already in my head.
Untitled Sirius/Lily Fic (Harry Potter)
What if, in his impatience, Voldemort hadn’t bothered to kill Lily, just swept her aside? What if James had his wand? What if James’ sacrifice was enough?
And this one I'm blaming on The Shrieking Shack Society... it's a 'Lily Lives' story that will ultimately become a Lily/Sirius story. I actually already have the prologue (or maybe first chapter...we're undecided) written up...but I need to focus on other stuff first, so it's queued...just like aaaaaalllllll the others.
Untitled Harry Potter/Twilight Crossover Fic (Harry Potter/Twilight X-over)
Pairing undecided, though most likely Hermione/Jasper or possibly even a Hermione/Jasper/Alice triad.
Ah, this one...I can't believe I'm even considering this...I don't even like Twilight...but someone rec'd me a couple x-overs on another site and they were kind of fun to read. The idea of a post-Second Wizarding War Hermione and Jasper is intriguing, what with their similar histories as (unwilling) soldiers, and I already have a set of cute little scenes in my head where Hermione and the Cullens realize what the others are...it could be fun. If it ever happens, of course.
No idea if I'll add in the 'Hermione as Bella's Visiting Relative' trope but it is a convenient and logical way to link the universes, so maybe. It'll likely be post-Eclipse, but definitely post New Moon.
So we'll see...I still can't believe I'm considering it...
Untitled Harry Potter/Sherlock Crossover Fic (Harry Potter/Sherlock X-over)
Summary still to be written - it will be a Hermione/John Watson pairing, though
Ah yes...another one that may or may not ever happen. I have several scenes already flitting around in my head, though, so we'll see.
The gist, though will be thus: scratch Mary and replace with Hermione. That simple and that complex. It's not that I don't like Mary (I do) but there is an intriguing potential parallel between her and her past/secrets and Hermione and her magic and past and so on and so on... It could be fun!
So we'll see what happens!
Untitled Jurassic World Fic (JW)
They had been a Team, in more ways than one, but after the Navy, Kara and Owen’s lives had gone off in two separate directions; he’d been recruited to the Raptor Training Program at Jurassic World. And Kara? Kara returned to her hometown. He’d chosen his career over her. So when he’d shown up at her bar after the Isla Nublar Fiasco? She should’ve wanted to throw him out. She didn’t. Owen/OC
I have smattering of dialogue. And a lemon. So against my judgement this one may happen...
Okay, not much to go on, but my brain is stupid and won't bloody let it go. Not sure of a whole lot, but what I do have suggests that it'll probably start a little before or a little after JW and go through at least to the end of JW:FK. So far the most substantial bit that I've got is that, after JW, Owen and my as of yet unnamed (though my brain is leaning to Kara just now, for some reason...) retreat to her small hometown, where she's takes up a job at the local bar while he starts building his cabin in the woods.
That's all I've got, so far. I know, it's so much...
Our Last Summer (Mamma Mia)
Donna, Harry, Sam and Bill all have fond memories of the summer of 1979. They also have heartbreaking ones. But what really happened? (Summary & Title subject to Change)
So one thing I'd like to make very clear. I really liked Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. I did. I loved it. It was well done, the cast was awesome and the music was, as anticipated, fantastic.
That being said...
I do have one very real complaint about it. As good as the movie was, it was as though the writer decided to watch the first one, got an idea, and totally threw out everything we learned about Donna's past with the Three Fathers so they could do their own thing. All that was left was the very basic framework. Very little of what we learned in the first 10 minutes of the first movie and during 'Our Last Summer' were adhered to.
So what does my brain do with this? Well, it decides it would like to take a stab at writing what the movie should have done for the 1979 flashbacks. So that's what this story is going to be about. It's going to be the story of Donna and the Three Fathers' Summer, but as the first movie described.
May or may not count as a 'Song-fic'. Not sure, yet.
Untitled Padme/Bounty Hunter Fic (Star Wars)
This one is just an idea at the moment, though the original name has been appropriated for another story. Whether or not it ever actually gets written is up in the air right now. It doesn't help that I'm not 100% certain about it anymore. I don't know, how does Padme as a bounty hunter sound to anyone? At first I thought it could be fun...now I'm not so sure. It just doesn't feel right, you know? At the very least, if I do decide to continue with the Bounty Hunter angle, I don't think I'll be linking it with my other two as I originally considered since I have some other thoughts there.
Star Wars Episodes I-III Rewritten
Please see rant above for explanation/background and likelihood that it'll actually happen...
Untitled Thranduil/OC LotR Fic (LotR)
Follows the love story of Thranduil and his Queen Lasbereth, culminating in their eventual regard and love for each other and the births of their children: Legolas and Aeslin.
Yeah...this one's going to happen. I have a general arc for the relationship, but nothing concrete written yet. This one's on a backburner for now.
Untitled Bard/OC LotR Fic (LotR)
Thyra had known Bard and his wife Anja her whole life, just as she knew most people in the Dale Quarter of Laketown. So when Anja died in childbirth, she had stepped up to help mind Bard's small children when he set out on the lake, determined to give Sigrid, Bain and Tilda the best life he could. As the years passed, Thyra grew to love his children as her own and Bard became her dear friend...though her heart began to yearn for something more...
Still, though hard, it was a good life Thyra had.
But danger and despair loom, heralded by prophecy, dwarves...
Follows Thyra and her growing feelings for Bard, the grim, devoted widower whose children she would watch when he needed to go out on the Lake.
Aaaand this one's appeared in my brain too. I have too many story ideas...bah. OCs name may change. It'll go through from probably shortly before the Hobbit movies to shortly after. We'll see. It has a little written out that wouldn't leave me alone...this is why I shouldn't let myself watch The Hobbit when I'm trying to work on other things...
Untitled Thorin/OC LotR Fic (LotR)
Ever since she was a child, Frena's father told her great tales of Erebor and the King under the Mountain. She grew and became a skilled carver of stone, a creator of beautiful things in her own right. And she grew into the woman who would hold Thorin's heart.
Follows Frena (name subject to change), the dwarf-woman who held Thorin's heart. And yeah, I know. The summary's very rough. :S
You know? I'm starting to think my brain hates me...here's another one that won't let me be! Oh well. I'm not entirely sure this one will ultimately be a full-bore multi-thousand word story. The way I'm envisioning it now is more a series of vignettes about Frena and Thorin's life together with the focus being on Frena. And no, she's not going to join the Quest for Erebor. I'm not a fan of 'additional walker' stories.
Untitled Boromir/OC LotR Fic (LotR)
Follows Gaelwyn and her daughter Aidawel, the illegitimate child of Boromir, as well as her Uncle Faramir and Aunt Eowyn.
Again, just a faint idea that would, of course, tie in with the others, if I write it at all. I may also just combine/integrate some of my ideas for it in with my rewrite of Bound Souls, Hidden Hearts (see below) and do just a one shot, or series of drabbles to cover what I couldn't do there. :) Names subject to change
Bound Souls, Hidden Hearts (LotR)
The eldest child of Aragorn and Arwen, Isanriel was different from her siblings in that she seemed to have inherited her mother's waning elf-nature. But when an unexpected engagement and a chaotic uprising threaten everything, she has to turn to the one Elf she is drawn to the most. Legolas/OC
Very much a working title!! Okay, here's the deal: I started this one when I was in High School...and upon rereading it, it shows. This one is in need of a MAJOR rewrite, because it's kind of terrible right now. Sadly, that means it's likely going to be a while before it's done and up here. BUT, on a more positive note, it is officially going to be linked to my already published LotR fic, with cameos from Aeslin and her family and probably Hilde and hers too! :) VERY tentative titles and names
Untitled Aramis/OC Fic (The Three Musketeers - 2011)
When Elise decided to let out part of her home to support her son, she did not expect to eventually see the three disgraced Musketeers who came to live with her as friends. Neither did she expect to be pulled into their adventures when a young man named D'Artagnon came to Paris, bringing with him their chance for redemption. Aramis/OC
You know the way your thoughts wander as you’re laying there trying to fall asleep? Yeah….it’s a dangerous time. But, it would seem I’m at my mind and my muse’s mercy. And that I have an impulse control problem. Because this happened. And it won’t go away...
Send help! I can't be trusted with my own brain!
Okay, so I don't actually know where this one came from, it just sort of happened. It's based solely on the 2011 Three Musketeers movie (featuring Matthew MacFadyen, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans, Logan Lerman, Christoph Waltz, and so on), though I may borrow the odd detail from the original novels courtesy of Wikipedia since I haven't actually read them myself. It really is rather a fun little movie, honestly, so long as you're going in expecting a corny, entertaining bit of goofiness. I mean, it's got Orlando Bloom as a wonderfully over the top, campy villain, so what's not to love? XD
Okay, Story Break-down: I'm taking out James Corden's character (Planchet) - because that was one of the few parts of the movie I found truly annoying, especially how the Musketeers treat him - and replacing him with Elise and her son Antoin.
Oh, and she's paired with Aramis...because I apparently have a bit of a thing for Luke Evans...
Untitled ASoIaF Fic (ASoIaF)
One evening before retiring, Ned Stark watches a very young Jon and Robb asleep together, musing on how hard it will be to keep the secret of Jon's true heritage from him, and the necessity of doing so.
A companion of sorts to my previous asoiaf one-shot, The Scent of Winter Roses. Naturally, centred around the once assumed, now confirmed theory that Lyanna is Jon's mother. Additionally, I may do a Rhaegar-centred fic too. I just need the inspiration to come :P
The Gods Will Always Smile on Brave Women (Vikings)
A young Englishwoman serving in King Ecbert's court has a chance encounter with a particular Priest. From that moment on, her life is never the same as he tells her everything she ever wanted to know about the Northmen, and leads her to a choice: stay in England as a serving maid, or leave with the Northmen to find her way as a Shieldmaiden. Athelstan/OC or Rollo/OC
Hey, we'll see where this one goes. I just started spontaneously writing it one day, and already have most of it planned out in my head. Will likely be a short one.
NOW ON HOLD! With the events in Seasons 3 and 4 messing with my muse on this one, I need to reconcile things that happened with the story in my head...
FURTHER ON HOLD ...I really need to catch up with the rest of Season 4...and start Season 5...
I Have Something in Mind (Stargate)
A Jack/Sam one-shot. The tension is becoming too much, so Jack decides to take matters into his own hands, and takes a trip to Sam's house.
This just needs a little editing, I think ...and finding and typing, since it's hand-written... and it'll be ready to post.
Untitled Stargate Fic (Stargate)
Miranda O'Neill couldn't believe it when she found herself invited to join the Stargate Program. She also couldn't believe it when she discovered just how involved her father was in its inception. Little did she know that, compared to the other things she was about to discover, that was nothing. Jack/Sam
Again, a High School-started fic. I haven't read it over in a while (to be honest, I'm not 100% sure where it is right now given that it's all handwritten...), so I'm not sure how much updating and, well, improving it's going to need before it is a) done and b) posted
Untitled Legion Fic (Legion)
A continuation of my previous fic. Follows Tessa post-legion. Unfortunately, this one needs a complete plot--actually, not just a complete plot, A plot-before I can really get started. I have some scenes, and some smaller ideas, but no unifying direction. We'll see if this one ever gets off the ground. For the moment, though, it is on hiatus. But, as a reviewer suggested and I only recently put together, the new show Dominion, on SyFy, is a continuation/spin-off of Legion, so we'll see what happens once I've seen a few episodes.
Filia Maris (Pirates of the Caribbean)
I may or may not add more to this one. I have a few ideas floating around in my head right now, but I'm not sure when (or if) anything will come of them
There may also be a possible Tudors fic sometime in the future, but I'm not sure on that one yet, as well as a one or two Disney ones.
There's always something going on! Stay tuned!!
And Happy Reading,
