Author has written 2 stories for Bones, and Vampire Diaries.
Welcome to my corner of this world!

The Name: Formerly known as “Porginess”, I was reluctant to part with the pen-name of three years, declaring it to be too unique to give up. However, as time drew on, change was inevitable. So, I now go by G.M.Portraepic (Portrait & Epic - don't ask me why it was that of all things ..not even entirely sure I know). But eh, it's grown on me!
The Writer: To my older readers, you know me as G. Whichever name you know me by, I'm an Australian girl, hopeless romantic, bit of a humanities nut...and...a fanatic when it comes to things I love. Namely, ships on shows.
Sounds pretty normal, right? Yep.
Except I do write fanfiction [obviously] - and if you've ever read or written it yourself, you know that in the best way possible, you're not a normal person. But that's cool.
I would love to visit the States, Europe, and Egypt, and all of those glorious places that you I read about in books, or see in movies, but for now, I am constricted to my life on the biggest island in the world, and it seems to inspire well enough.
So, why do I write?
The written word has fascinated me from the moment I was able to read it. For me, the dynamics of the relationship between two characters has always been what draws me into a story. Likewise, for television series, and movies. Writing for me, has not always been about escaping into another person's world, and playing around with their lives; it was, I suppose, more so about me discovering parts of myself through developing their characters, and expanding on them as characters with what I have.
Trixie Belden. I blame it on that; none of the characters ever got together so my sisters and I searched for endings - thus discovering fanfiction. Thousands of endings. It was crazy. But these people answered our questions. And one day...I knew that was what I wanted to do: answer people's questions, where shows' creators had failed or neglected to do so...
No, but to be honest? I don't absolutely know what attracted me to write it in the first place. There's something...immediate about fanfiction: if you have story to share with the universe, you don't have to [figuratively] go through a thousand publishers to get it out - and that's what I like about this. Being able to offer something, that essentially has no limitations.
For my chosen catergories, I selected to write a narrative about specific characters because I saw what I could do for them, and I decided to give it a shot. (Or, I'm just obsessed with them...)
Anyway, that's why I'm here; to give you guys, what the writers will not - and I'll even do you the justice of throwing in a plot, stirring it up with a few cliffhangers, and then add a pinch of angst and romance - because this is the genre I write for.
Who/What do I write Fiction for?
- The Vampire Diaries
I Would Consider:
- Once Upon a Time: Hook & Emma [Captain Swan]
- Marvel's Agents of Shield: Skye and Ward
THE VAMPIRE DIARIES:
I've watched this show since it was a baby. It has hundreds of potential plots, and plenty of logic loose ends that don't tie up. It has ships that sink, sail and beach. Characters that make you laugh, hate, cry, obsess and love.
How could I not find something to write about for this show? When I did, it came in the form of Klaus Mikaelson and Caroline Forbes.
Deep down I'll always root for them, but now that they're on separate shows, I know the creators - and actors are pretty happy with putting them on the back-burner. Don't believe me? Look at all the interviews. They're getting tired of answering the same question with, "Yes, there's potential for [cross-overs]. Yes it's definitely something that [we're] going to leave open, BUT-"
And that's where I come in. The "...But" -- because you know that they're going to explore just about every other possible storyline before they come to crossovers. It's honestly just something Klaroline fans are starting to come to terms with.
But I'm not going to stop shipping them. I don't want people to forget this relationship and its dynamic, and so that's why I've started The Originals Chronicles. The first in this series, being "Ubiquitous".
The Originals Chronicles:
This series focuses on Caroline Forbes and Niklaus Mikaelson - an alternate "The Originals", these chronicles disincludes the Hayley baby plotline, and spirals much, much deeper into mythology and a different kind of world than I believe the show ever would.
This storyline begins after "O Come of Ye Faithful" - I started writing this story as a one shot last summer holidays, when that mid-season finale had aired - and it was so well received by you guys, I kept on going. Slowly I built on it, and actually - no cliche - had an epiphany one night...let's just say, after Hayley's announced pregnancy, when I knew I was going to do everything in my power to create the Originals that the KC fans wanted. And even, also other TVD fans - while Klaroline is my OTP, I'm open to any other character ship that doesn't include Klaus and Caroline: I therefore sometimes explore/mention other relationships in the show.
The beauty of fanfiction? I can do that. Katherine can go to New Orleans to visit Elijah. Stefan can go to New Orleans and form the Three Muskateers with Klaus and Caroline. There are no limitations: there are no scheduling conflicts between shows/actors. There are no other people I need to consult with except you guys - there is no Julie. I'm the boss. And you guys.
Oh my god, writing TVD fanfiction is the equivalent to a child running around in a candy shop where every sweet is free.
- The Originals Chronicles -
Similar to the "movie" system, I will create and release a teaser trailer, and then later on a more detailed theatrical trailer. The name of the next chronicle will be listed here prior to the release of the first trailer. TV spots may occasionally be added if time permits.
This was my first area of passion when it came to FanFiction. My 'Bones' fandom ship anchored in the harbour at the beginning of 2013...I just unfortunately lost interest in it. Not in any way to I regret writing that story - it was a massive learning curve for me as a writer, and helped me so much. But, unfortunately, I'd been writing [it] for almost two years, and I simply grew tired of it. In the show, Booth and Brennan had a child, and were practically a married couple. It didn't feel like I needed to do anything more for the characters - unlike in season six, when I wrote the story. The show had done it for them. I won't be writing anymore for this show, I've moved on.
The Avengers &
Yep. This was inevitable.
Thor, Captain America and Iron Man. Love them.
One of my latest favourite shows? Surprise, Agents of SHIELD. I know it's in its baby days...but I already ship Skye and Ward. Unashamed. I'm expecting great things from these two!
Why haven't I written anything for them, then? I don't know. It's sort of the thing I want to keep fan-fiction free, because the writers have done a good job. They're logical, clever, and I enjoy watching these characters come through on their own. On the very rare occasion that I read any FanFic for these guys, it is only when it's realistic - and I suppose if I ever do write something, it would be a once shot, and only if someone requested it. :)
Once Upon a Time
So, I started watching this at the end of 2013 - because I'd seen so much of this couple "Captain Swan" on my dash, and their chemistry just looked crazy. Could not resist - I eventually had to check it out. I watched all their scenes from the current season (3) and got so intrigued I decided to go back and watch from the start.
I got completely and utterly hooked. [Pun intended] I literally spent my whole summer break watching the series. Best decision ever. #NoRegrets
Is it bad that I shipped Emma and Hook before I'd even fully gotten into the show? How could I not! After catching up, and getting slightly obsessed with the show - my love for it is now neck and neck [even more] than my love for TVD and Klaroline. Yep, there is enough room in my shipper heart for two!
At this stage, I will not write FanFiction for OUAT however, because like I said earlier - I only write for shows when I feel like the show-runners aren't doing them justice. I love the writers of this show, and I love the dynamic they've built and are continuing to build between Emma and Hook. So - I've been reading the fiction (during the hiatus) but not writing. :)
Typo's, and any misuse of words/grammar:
Unfortunately, I am a major sucker for all of these occasionally; often, skimming through my work at one in the morning on a school night [naughty!] so I do apologise whenever they are present like a swarm of flies. For my Bones FanFic, I am a horrible offender, and I really sincerely apologise. I am a high school student, so granted my writing should improve as I learn, and further my knowledge - but honestly, if you have a problem with my work [particularly my work from my early writing days] - I don't really have the energy or care to deal with picky-ness, so please go and read someone-older, elses' work. Haters gonna hate.
I do not wish to take on a Beta, as I prefer to march to the beat of my own drum and not have deadlines, or to let anyone down because sometimes life is just too busy to write, and I've become better at picking up errors, so, for all of my readers that have known me a while, and tolerate this - I love you to pieces, and you know I do! xx
So, there you have it. An insight into me - G! [A very long one, I do apologise!]
Thank you so much for stopping by!
