I've created an account for my future original Guardian fiction at FictionPress. It's at http://www.fictionpress.com/laurapicken. And since, apparently, links only work here in the profile, here's a link to get to the prologue of the Guardian predecessor novel, "Guardians of Shangri La": http://www.fictionpress.com/s/3097477/1/Guardians-of-Shangri-La. I really hope you'll check it out!
Thank you for the warm welcome to the community! I started writing fan fiction for "The Sentinel" back when it was popular in the '90s, but once the show got cancelled I eventually lost interest. Almost all the Sentinel stuff from that time has been transferred over here, and you can find it below.
My specialty is crossovers. I love trying to take two shows no one would connect, find a connection between the show that makes sense and build a great story around it. Case in point: "Fly Like an Eagle, Run Like the Wind". It's a Dawson's Creek/The Flash crossover. The connection? John Wesley Shipp, who played the Flash on TV and Dawson's dad on the show. That was a blast to write.
Well, once "The Sentinel" left the airwaves I didn't find a show that inspired my muse enough to start writing again...until "Castle". Like thousands of other Caskettites, my muse woke up shortly after "Always" and demanded that I get my lazy butt writing again. It's been fun.
ALL-TIME FAVORITE FAN FIC: It's not on this site, sadly. It's a classic series of AU X-Files fan fiction grouped under the title "The Magician". It's currently inspiring my Castle AU "Four Winds". Any fans of "Four Winds" will find the "Magician" series to be absolutely worth reading, even if they're not fans of "The X-Files". Here's a link to the stories:. (Please be warned that these four stories are novel-length and a very hard M rating at points).
Anyway, hope you've enjoyed reading my stories as much as I've enjoyed writing them. Comments, criticisms and snide remarks all welcome. :-)
