Author has written 3 stories for Merlin, and Great Gatsby.
First of all, for all of those reading Fatal Flaw, I would like to apologize for how long it is taking me to upload the next chapter. I promise that I haven't forgotten about it. I promise, IT WILL NEVER BE ABANDONED!! Thanks to all for reading and favoriting it, and please know that it is always at the top of my to-do list! No, really!
Also, I have had a lot of guests review it and leave kind words. Since I'm not able to send you a thank-you pm, I'm just gonna thank you here until I can update the next time. I really am trying to work on the next chapter. I can't promise when it will be, but I promise that there will be one. I'm just starting college, so things are kinda crazy right now. But I know that what the world needs is more hurt!Arthur, so I will continue! Because I'm a people pleaser :)
I feel, and I'm sure a few other Arthur lovers do too, that there is too much Merlin!whump on fan fiction. This will not do!! Arthur should have a turn! We must take a stand! Whenever I am able to get back to writing, know that it will have some Arthur!whump. If anyone else happens to read this and has written or knows of some great Arthur whumping stories, PLEASE let me know! I would love to read and review. Arthur Whumpers Unite!!!
AN UPDATE: I have found a hurt!Arthur site on Livejournal. I thought I would share it with my fellow Arthur Whumpers. Take our the spaces in the URL, and you are there! http :// arthur - whumping . livejournal . com/ It needs a lot of work, care, and love, but maybe we can help it grow! I would certainly love to see more hurt!Arthur exist. Let's keep it from becoming a total endangered species, shall we?
On to the profile:
I have been reading the stories on here for a while, and decided I wanted to try publishing a few of my own. I suppose only time will tell how successful these fics are :)
A little bit about me: I enjoy running and playing basketball, sing, play the piano, paint, write, and have many other random hobbies as well.
I enjoy feedback and welcome criticism, as long as it is constructive. I'm always looking to improve my writing.
My favorite genre is hurt/comfort. Am I one of those sadists who likes torturing their favorite characters? Maaaayyybe. But giving characters the chance to overcome adversities through either their inner strength or the help of amazing friends (BROMANCE!!) sure makes for a good read. Whenever I write, I will usually include some hurt/comfort, and most of my favorites are stories of this genre as well. Just in case anyone ever wants to read a good whumping story!
A side note: I never have liked slash, and will never, ever write any.
Where else to find me:
I'm on Livejournal as 'sir_pendragon'. I don't have much up there yet, but I will eventually add all stories that I have posted to this account also on the other one.
I'm also on Deviantart as 'asamanofreason'. You can check out my artwork, if you so please. Merlin lovers, I did an Arthurian Legend concentration for a semester. I'm currently working on a painting of our favorite blonde prince/king/knight.
My Favorite Fandoms (and Characters)
Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew (Joe Hardy)
Harry Potter (Ron Weasley)
Merlin (Arthur Pendragon)
Percy Jackson and the Olympians (Percy Jackson)
Star Wars (Luke Skywalker)
Supernatural (Sam Winchester)
Now, looking at these fandoms and subsequent favorite characters, I'm sure that some of you have noticed that they are all main characters. "What a conformist!" you might say. While I admit that I am not the most creative when it comes to choosing my favorite characters, I have always loved the main ones the most. They are the ones that we see and interact with the most often. They are the ones that we get to watch grow and develop. We can get closer to them because greater focus is on them. Let's face it: if a story has lousy leads, then it will most likely be a lousy story. So, you may keep your obscure favorite characters. As for me, I will stand by my favorites forever, and if that makes me a conformist, follower, or anything else that you choose to call a person like me, at least I do so with pride :)
Ever go back over something you read and already published and wish that you could make changes or have done something differently? I certainly have. All part of the learning curve, I guess.
This is brilliant:
"But we voted," said Elyan, "You voted not to tell him."
"Yes, well, we also live in a monarchy, one I happen to be at the top of," said Arthur, "Voting is just to make you lot feel better about yourselves. Clearly."
