Welcome to my newly redecorated profile. I am Tia, otherwise known as Firestorm Nauralagos. Feel free to call me either Tia or Firestorm- I have no particular preference. :)
A Little About Me
I am a 21 year old in college, majoring in Writing and minoring in Design And Technical Theater. Some of my favorite things are pirates, reading, playing The Sims, watching stupid YouTube videos, and generally making an enormous fool of myself. While my main purpose in life is writing, I also play with art stuff now and then, mainly drawing/painting and knitting, as well as (recently) doll customization. I am a Pagan witch (no, I do not sacrifice children or drink blood. :p) and also a chronic procrastinator. You may notice this if you read any of my fics.
My mental health is pretty much crap. I suffer from severe social and separation anxiety, SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and an adjustment disorder. I'm not embarrassed by any of these issues that I have- they are diseases, and no one should feel embarrassed to be sick. I'm always open to discussing or answering questions about mental health, be it my own or just mental health in general- it's an important topic that is all too often stigmatized, hidden away, and ignored.
That being said: these problems have a large impact on my ability to function normally, and as such, writing fan fictions isn't always my main concern. It's not just procrastination- some days I may not even be able to get out of bed. Add in work and college, and I'm sure you can see why these stories, while fun to write, aren't too high on my list of priorities. I do want to continue to write them, but try to understand that updates will be sporadic and there may be very long periods of time between them. Thanks for being cool. :)
It's been like 2 years at this point since I updated Journey of Fire's Song. I'm not gonna lie- whenever I look back at my fanfiction writing, I'm usually super unhappy with it, mainly because of how much I've improved since starting college. This, unfortunately, includes the Firesong Saga and any of the offshoots I wrote. My writing then was amateurish compared to the kind of stuff I write now, and I worry that starting to update again so suddenly would be a huge, weird jump for everyone reading it. That being said, I do still want to finish the saga. I put a crap ton of time into it back in high school, and I still do think about it pretty frequently, but before I can get back to writing, I have to reconcile the fact that what's been published isn't what I'm capable of now, and there's going to be a difference. I could try editing/rewriting the entire series, but we all know how well I've been doing with the Destiny rewrites, soooooo it's just gonna have to stay and get better from where it is. If I can chain myself to my computer without giving in to The Sims, I'll try and write some more, and start updating again (still sporadically and slowly) when I'm able to. Until then, thanks to anyone who still reads my stuff, and I'll put up more of it eventually. :)
Where Can Firestorm Be Found? (Besides lurking on fanfiction.net)
A. On fiction press, under the pen name "Firestorm Nauralagos." I am a beta reader on both this website and that one, and I also have a website, which you will find the link to at the bottom of my profile :3 Said website contains a blog, which contains the secrets as to why I so frequently procrastinate on updates. Additionally, I am a moderator on the WizPir101 forum (run by the fabulous Rebecca Ripple) and I have two forums of my own, both in the Wizard101 fandom: "So, you want to write a story?" and "We're not all that bad!"
Update- I just recently joined Archive of Our Own (or AO3) under the same pen name. The majority of my stories will be cross posted onto that website, with the exception of one or two I plan on deleting anyways.
Since I have absolutely no life and way too much free time, I have made a website for random pictures and other various things regarding my fan fictions. The address is firestormnauralagos . webs . com (you'll have to remove le spaces, though XD) If you've gone to the right place, you'll see Squishy 8) there to welcome you. xD
"Frozen Woods" is the backstory of Erica Bluestone, one of my characters from the Firesong Saga. This is going to be a oneshot- I don't feel that there's enough to her history to write a multi-chapter story. This is one of those things I'm planning to write during a weekend when I get bored, so there's no set publication date. Feature characters: O.C., Lydia Greyrose, Headmaster Ambrose. Rating: K plus. Genres: Family, Adventure.
"Friend" is a Princess and the Frog oneshot. Feature character: Dr. Facilier. Rating: T. Genres: Angst, horror.
"The Sisters Three" is going to be a multi-chapter Disney's Cinderella fic that ignores A Twist in Time (why would they even make such an abomination? xP) Feature characters: Cinderella, Anastasia, Drizella. Rating: K plus or T. Genres: Mystery, Adventure.
"Song of the Sea" will be a Pirate101 X Wizard101 crossover featuring the Firesong Saga cast and some new friends ... Feature character: O.C. Rating: K plus. Genres: Adventure, Friendship.
If you need a cover for your story and like my style of drawing (the Anything You can do cover is the most recent one) I am willing to try making one for you. I mostly draw people, and they tend to look like a cross between manga and realism, although I can draw other stuff as well. There's more stuff about this cover drawing thing on my website (the link is above). You can contact me about this through a P.M.
