Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter, Resident Evil, and Thor.
I am a writer who sincerely wishes she was more talented who lives in Glasgow, Scotland. I study Law and forensic medicine. I want to be a criminal lawyer so I am drawn to the dark and the seedy. Just as well given that I like my writing to be dark and/or realistic. I used to work for the British military, and more recently with the those suffering from mental illness and specialising in palliative care. I am also a freelance radio journalist and tend to work on political stories so if I get too into my own experiences of working for the Ministry of Defence or political work please let me know. Currently working in print for a well known group of newspapers in Scotland covering technology and videogame news as well as other geek stuff.
Feel free to private message me on here if you want to have a natter, though I must mention I do like to keep my fanfic world and real life separate. Given my background most of my peers would simply take the piss out of me and I would prefer not to have that agro.
I enjoy writing stories with drama, horror and as much realism as I can possibly inject into my tales. I am also a big film and music buff and I like to homage my favourites. Points will go to those who can guess what film they are from :).
To be specific I am a big horror fan and always have been, from games, to books to film, these days I can be commonly found to be watching Mark Gatiss' History of Horror or similar documentaries on the horror genre.
I have many favourites but in particular I love the following works: Devil May Cry, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Harry Potter, Ian Rankin, Philip Pullman, Sherlock Holmes, HP Lovecraft, Glen Duncan, Bones, Spooks, West Wing, Mad Men, Batman, Shakespeare, Vladimir Nabokov, John Steinbeck. In the Thick of it, In the Loop and a fair few others.
You might notice a couple of old stories that have been banging about for a while, mostly Harry Potter. These will be done just I don't have a lot of time these days to fulfil my hobby. I have more of a thing going for Resident Evil right now than I do anything else so if its an Resi story you are wanting you are in luck at the moment.
Please read and review as I am trying to get my arse back in the game and would like constructive critique to improve my work as well as someone to read through my fictions before I post them as I feel I tend to rush the writing process out of fear of not updating.
Promise: Claire was known for rushing headlong into danger, she had never shrank back from a fight but this time she was in over her head. The death of Raccoon City has left people frightened and thousands of families and survivors angry and looking for closure. They turn to groups like Veritas; organisations that seek to expose the truth. The truth being that multiple members of government from the lowest city hall to the highest offices of the United States Government knew and colluded with Umbrella to create the most dangerous and potent biological weapons known to man.
Distant and angry with her brother Chris Redfield, Claire finds herself increasingly isolated and joins Veritas to fight back despite growing mentally vulnerable as a result of her run-ins with Umbrella. Once her crusade all goes wrong, Clare finds an unlikely benefactor who teaches her the unfortunate realities of life.
Faust's Shadow- Claire Redfield has been captured and taken to the Rockfort Facility. Her search for her brother is over and incarcerated Claire is now subject to the whims of a man doomed from birth. Alfred Ashford is a man who has never really been able to leave behind the vicious games and fairy-tales of childhood and now after over 15 years of loneliness his mind has finally reached breaking point. Rockfort is proof that there is no such thing as happy endings. *STRONG SEXUAL VIOLENCE: PLEASE READ FOLLOWING NOTE*
The one fic I am feeling a lot for right now is Promise- I remember back in the day (the day being around the 2002/3 mark) it was just me and some guy called fan fic writer UK here who liked the Wesker/Claire ship. Now its everywhere like a dose of crabs. Not a bad thing lots of good fics out there and many of them are in my favourite stories list. I urge you to read them.
Anyway, Promise is a W/C with hopefully a twist (or two) to make it stick out from all the other fics out there. Be warned though the main inspirations for this story have been X-men 2, Species and Dracula 2000. No really.
I warn you Promise is extremely dark and is meant to be genuinely unsettling this is not your usual Claire gets infected and manages to control it fic. If I say Lisa Trevor I hope you know the level of disturbing I am aiming for. This is not a conventional Wesker/Claire and does not see them riding off into the sunset rather it ends in horrific tragedy. I feel really chuffed by it once we get by the first chapter and I hope you will stick with it when it goes up. This fic deals with mental illness so if that makes you squeamish please don't read it.
I also did a lot of reading on PTSD and how survivors of September 11th, Katrina or the July the 7th bombings cope or in some cases don't cope with what has happened to them. I know this sounds incredibly pompous but that was the only real life scenario I could think of. I am trying to make it as realistic as possible the emotions and feelings that would be endured by the characters and I may fall flat on my face but I will give it a go.
Wesker and Claire are the two most well rounded characters in the Resident Evil universe. I enjoy the Ripley-esque nature of Claire despite her being at times sarcastic and with her own wit (though I doubt we will see it much with all the Leon hard-ons Capcom has these days)
Wesker himself? What’s not to love here in a villain. Looks good in uniform, dry wit, calculating, Machiavellian and not much gets by those shades. I must add I do not like the Wesker character from Re 4 onwards. I do however like the characterisation of Wesker in the following: REmake, Zero, CVX and both of the Chronicles series. These games show that ultimately Wesker still has human desires and wants and most importantly a dry wit.
Faust's shadow- Now, this one definitely will not be everyone's cup of tea and frankly I will find that understandable.
Years ago when I was 18 I was battered, raped and and for years I have watched and read the trivialisation of rape or sexual assault in fan fiction and in the media. But for some reason it seems to be quite a big problem in the fan-fiction realm in particular with a minority who seem to find it romantic in some way.
Maybe its just me who seems to have a problem with it if it is let me know. To me there is a big difference between coercive sex and something which is basically an invasion of the most precious possession each human being has; their body and there seems to be a bit too romanticism about what is a brutal horrific experience.
From that frustration I suppose has come Faust's Shadow, where my own experiences will not be so much written in or directly ripped off but used to create a realistic aftermath of what rape entails and what that means not only for the victim but what it means for the individual who carries out that crime.
Now I will be honest, I have been in two minds as to whether I should put Faust up. Partly because I feel like I am putting myself up there for people to take pot-shots at me and also because I think I think it will be a genuinely unsettling and hard to read for some. That's all I really have to say on the matter.
