Author has written 13 stories for Lord of the Rings, Animorphs, Harry Potter, Merlin, and Young Justice.
Thanks so much for coming here and checking out my stuff. I write out of an overflow of life. How else can I be expected to bear the confusion, pain, longing and beauty of it all?
I'm an American, but please don't hold it against me. :) I live in the great state of Texas, but consider myself neither a Texan nor a cowgirl. I don't go around saying "Howdy!" or anything. I'm married, have four kids and work in a health food store. I'm a Christian, which influences everything I write.
I am constantly trying to get my own stuff published IRL, and it's such a blessing to be able to publish things here without the circus that is the publishing industry interfering with the creative process. Thanks for reading and commenting!
If I write anything in the future, it is most likely something in the Batman world. Because...well, Dick Grayson. Enough said. :D
Thanks so much for all the encouragement, guys.
Oh. And was there a YJ season 2? Oh. Well. I haven't watched it. Don't plan to. I like the story we have just fine at the end of season one.
PS-- Okay. So as I'm posting YJ stuff, I'm getting an occasional tongue-lashing for making Dick a super-celebrity for my first YJ story. Apparently, this is not canon and people do not approve. Whatever. But for those of you who really want to know: I do have reasons for this!
Number one: it's fun. :D I was really just playing around and saying "what-if?". I'm allowed to do that as a writer of fanfiction. That's kind of the whole point. But let me further say that once I thought of this idea, I couldn't convince myself otherwise. Because...
Number two: Bruce is a super-duper-uper-celebrity. The media follows him, hounds him, photographs him, etc., etc. until he's miserable. He has to make appearances for society's sake, like all the time because of all the philanthropies he's involved in. That's canon in all Batman stuff.
Number three: we aren't shown much regarding Dick's life in YJ. The fact that Bette Kane at Gotham Academy doesn't feel led to explain to Artemis who Dick is means nothing. All it means is that to Bette Kane, one of the richest kids in that school, Dick wasn't somebody she wanted to talk about. Why? We don't know, but I would hazard a guess that it's probably because he's been adopted from a circus background and isn't therefore, up to the standards of the rich brats at Gotham Academy. You know, like her family is all, "don't associate with that riffraff!"
They would snub him. That does not mean that Gotham as a whole wouldn't embrace the circus boy who was adopted by the super-popular billionaire philanthropist.
In fact, imagine Dick's story happening in your city. So tragedy strikes! He loses his family and way of life in one instant. It's all over the news. Wouldn't you remember him? Wouldn't you care about his story? Be intrigued and a little scared that a playboy billionaire adopted him? Be worried for him? Then when you see him at events, wouldn't you be glad he's looking okay and happy that he's looking so handsome and well-brought up?
And, here's the point: wouldn't little teeny bopper girls who have grown up watching his story unfold and now see how cute he is now and how rich--well, wouldn't they make a fan club? Sure they would. There would not be a branch of it at Gotham Academy. Nope. But in other schools? Yep.
Would it be as huge as I made it out to be? Maybe. Could be. If you doubt it, just remember those eyes and that charm! His Robin persona is very different from Dick Grayson. Pointedly so.
So there. There's my reasons for making Dick a super-celeb, although this is all a waste of time because I doubt you'll see this in my other stories. From here on out, I'll mostly be posting Robin stories. I think. :D Unless I get enough requests to continue Robin's Awards Show. ;)
