Author has written 13 stories for Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Merlin, Avengers, and Lord of the Rings.
I joined fanfiction.net because I love reading fanfiction almost as much as I love writing it. The hard part, though, for me, is taking the ideas swarming around my head and getting them down onto paper, shaping them into something actually coherent.
The stories here are a result of what happens when I succeed.
A TARDIS In New York City (A Doctor Who/Avengers Crossover)
All Jack, Rose, and the Doctor wanted was a nice trip to New York. Of course, they jus had land smack-dab in the middle of an alien invasion, didn't they? And what's with all the people in funny costumes? (Doctor/Rose, Jack)
As Harry prepares to face off against a dragon in the Tournament’s first challenge, he meets an old friend he wasn’t quite expecting to see.
The Harry Potter Generation (An Avengers Story)
Spurred on by yet another one of Tony’s snide remarks, Steve decides that new research into modern-day pop-culture is in order. In the process, he discovers that some of the best things in new world are not necessarily made in the USA.
AU! Fem!Harry Orphaned Harriet Potter is not extraordinary in any way. But when some mysterious people show up at her Aunt and Uncle’s and claim to be her parents, she learns of an untold past and that she might not be as normal as she believed.
Miss Merlin (A Merlin Series):

Voldemort's Miss-Understanding (A Harry Potter/Merlin Crossover)
Or How Voldemort's Plan Once Again Goes A Bit Wrong And Merlin Is Stuck With Gwaine And Arthur In A World Where Everybody Is Convinced That She Has A Beard. Huh? Gwaine/Girl!Merlin; Arthur/Gwen. Sequel to The Miss-Adventures of Gwaine
Clarke's Third Law
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. So what happens when witch meets scientist? Things become a tad confusing. And more than a bit fantastic. Doctor/Rose
Clarke's First Law
Rose is stuck in Fred's World and the Doctor knows that getting her back is impossible. Then again, doesn't the universe just love to prove him wrong? Meanwhile, trouble is brewing for Rose on the other side of the wall. Sequel to "Clarke's Third Law."

Or What Happens When Merlin Tries To Adjust To Her New Role As Court Sorceress And The Knights Discover That Not All Nobles Have Noble Intentions (Fem!Merlin/Gwaine, Arthur/Gwen, Lancelot/OC).
Updates and Notices
Update (3/1/14): So I am not dead, I promise. I'm hard at work on several stories-- the next line of stories for both Miss Merlin and Harriet Potter .I also have an Avengers one-shot up my sleeve (I'll tell you nothing else! Spoilers!) and have been toying with the idea of some Supernatural fics. Now I just need to write all of this stuff down.
On a different note, I will no longer be updating my livejournal account (under the same name), since I've found it hard to maintain both accounts, and since most of my readership is here anyway. I will however be keeping the account open so that people looking for my stories there will be able to find them. There's nothing more frustrating than looking for a deleted story. In the meantime, thanks for bearing with me! I appreciate your patience!
Updated (6/18/13): You can now follow me on tumblr. My username is Redhairedbeggargirl, inspired by the Charles Baudelaire poem of the same name :)
Update (12/28/12): With the New Year approaching, I thought I'd give a quick outline of my future plans for my stories and let you know what I'll be working on, though, to be honest, not much has changed since my last update. So, in no particular order...
Miss-Merlin series: I'll be finishing up Voldemort's Miss-Understanding and I can announce that this story will be taking a decidedly AU turn (as if making Merlin a girl, sticking her with Gwaine, and throwing into 21st Century London wasn't AU enough...) in terms of the Season 5 finale of Merlin. Despite how heartbreaking it was, I did love the finale and found it beautiful, but by making Miss-Merlin slightly AU in that respect, it will give me more freedom to continue writing this series, which is something I really hope to do.
Clarke's Laws: This series will be wrapping up soon. I have only a few chapter's left of Clarke's First Law, followed by a short and fluffy Clarke's Second Law. There may be some one-shots to round the whole thing off.
Harriet Potter: I am still working on the first one-short for this series, which I know I promised ages ago, but it feels very strange to write in such a different style for Harriet. Regardless, I hope it will be up soon. I do want to finish at least one more of my projects (see above) before I start posting something new, but I tend to be particularly bad at those sorts of resolutions, so we'll see.
Anything else: Who knows what will come up. A sequel for Hello, My Name is Norbert(a)? A Game of Thrones story? A Lizzie Bennet Diaries fic? Something completely random for one of my other series? Only time will tell! Feel free to send me suggestions, too, by the way. I am always open to new story ideas!
Update (6/6/12): There's not really anything going on right now, but I thought I'd take the time to give a quick note about what I've been working on and the projects I have planned for these next few months.
So, first off, Harriet. I'm on the last few chapters of Harriet, but I'm not going to give an exact number. I've been getting some comments lately asking about who I'm going to pair Harriet with. The answer? Nobody! At least, not yet. Harriet will only run through Harriet's second year, at which point I think she is way too young to have a boyfriend. That said, I would like to do a series of one-shots set after Harriet which would look at Harriet's later years and (maybe) pair her with somebody. As for who that will be? It's a surprise.
Next, Clarke's Laws. So I'm working on Clarke's First Law right now and, even though it's coming rather slowly, it is coming. If I had it my way, I'd love to write a Clarke's Second Law, too, so I'd have all three laws done, but I'm still working out possible plots for that story. In the meantime, I have a few other things in the works for the Clarke's Law 'verse, so stay tuned!
For the Miss-Adventures of Gwaine, I've been asked to do a sequel/Harry Potter crossover that I'm really excited about, but not really sure how to start. I'm working on it in between Clarke's First Law and Harriet, but I really do hope to start posting it sometime in the early summer-ish.
I've also gotten a lot of comments asking for a sequel to Hello, My Name is Norbert(a) (and yes, the parentheses are supposed to be there... stupid Fanfiction title-thingy). I really want to write one. I'm just not sure how I would make it work. So I'm not saying "No," I'm just saying, "Not just yet."
Anything random coming up? Probably. If the plot-bunnies deem it so. Just check back every so often if you're interested.
Thanks for letting me ramble! Have a great summer!
Update (11/24/11): It's only been a month, but I feel like I've been away from ages. Good news? I'm back! That means I should be updating both of my stories at my normal rate (so about once a week for Clarke's Third Law and once a month of Harriet Potter). On another note, I have a Livejournal account. As of this posting, I've only posted Clarke's Third Law (it's now up to date with the chapters posted on ff.net). I haven't posted Harriet Potter yet because I'd like to do some editing first. Some of the earlier chapters are quite bad (I'd like to think that they've improved, but I could just be deluding myself). Any ways, thanks for your patience with me and I hope you enjoy my stories.
Update (10/24/11): Hello all! Thanks for taking the time to read this update really quick. Okay, so remember how I mentioned in one of my author's notes that I wasn't feeling well? (No? Well just pretend you do). I might have underplayed it a bit. I was actually in the hospital on several different antibiotics treating a very persistent lung infection. It wasn't life threatening or anything (the doctors caught it early), but it did take quite a bit out of me.
Almost a month later, I'm finally out and on the mend! I'm feeling much better, which is great! One problem: I'm still in school. That means make-up work, a lot of it. And my lung infection had the horrible timing of waiting until midterm season to strike, so I missed all of those. As such, I am extremely swamped and working as hard as I can to get everything done before finals (which are in December). I'm actually hoping to get it all done by Thanksgiving, but we'll see.
The point is that updates will be slower than usual until I'm more caught up. I'll be writing, but more sporadically than normal. Still, you can expect updates to at least one of my stories at least once a month. Maybe even both, but probably just one. I'm really sorry! I'm trying to get all my work done as fast as I can!
Thanks for your understanding,

"When writing fanfics, the best thing to do first in order to obtain inspiration is to walk around the house wearing our shirts backwards, pants from the inside out, shoes on our heads, and eating burnt cookies... It's from silliness that great stories are born." -My friend, D.N.
Write as though you need to, not simply because you want to or can, and no matter what, don't stop.
Thanks for grapemartini on Livejournal for the amazing picture manip that I used for my profile!
