Tumblr - Di The Creator

Hello! Call me Di. I'm too much of a perfectionist with too little time to write an abundance of stories, so I tend to put all of my time and energy into one story at a time. Also, I never start anything that I have no intention of finishing, especially within a reasonable amount of time. (I don't think it should take three years to write 20,000 words...) Though I'm a big believer in improvising while writing, it's not too often that I start posting a story without knowing exactly how it's going to end. So, I try to make every chapter productive and relevant (even if it may not seem like it at the time. ;] )

I read fics even less than I write them, but when I do read other fan works, I make sure to leave reviews.


INTERESTS (include but not limited to):

  • Star Trek (2009)/Into Darkness
  • Star Trek: The Original Series/Movies
  • Sherlock (BBC)
  • Supernatural
  • Captain America: The First Avenger/ The Winter Soldier
  • Too much classic literature to list...

  • UPDATING POLICY:

    When I have a story in progress, I try to keep it within about a week (give or take) between updates. New policy seems to be bi-weekly, as in every two weeks. That way the chapters can go up regularly and I will have plenty of time to write/proofread/edit the upcoming chapter(s).


    Some writing maxims! (These are mostly for me, but also worth sharing with my fellow writers.)

    Quality over Quantity

    Make every word matter

    Dialogue can be powerful, so be careful how you use it. If it can be cut out without altering the characters' portrayal or the plot, then cut it out.

    Know your characters! Don't sacrifice them or their personalities to force a plot the way you want it.

    Thesaurus is your bff.

    "You don't really understand an antagonist until you understand why he's a protagonist in his own version of the world." - John Rogers

    Flaws, flaws, flaws. They are such stuff as complex characters are made of. (That includes physical imperfections.)

    A PSA on Reviews

    Do not underestimate the importance of leaving reviews! If you read a story all the way through to the end, at least take one minute to leave a review for the writer. It means more than you can ever know to see feedback of any kind for a story. It should go without saying, but keep your criticism constructive if you didn't like the story. We're all learning the art of storytelling here, so if someone isn't so good at it, tell them how they can improve. Tell them their strong points along with their weak points. Seriously, writers thrive on feedback. Share the love by just acknowledging their work!

    Star Trek: Doomsday by HeartofFyrwinde reviews
    Heading out into deep space almost a year after Khan's rampage, Captain James T.

    The Deleted by magentacr reviews
    Oneshot. Sherlock accidentally deleted John from his Mind Palace, just as life starts coming between them, and some time passes before anyone realises what he's done. How will John handle it, and how will they repair the damage?

    Without an Alibi by magentacr reviews
    3 parter, based on the song 'Over the Hills and Far Away'. Mary and Sherlock have always been a bit flirty, but how far will they go to protect John from the truth when things go further than flirting, and will he be able to forgive them when he finds out?

    Why? by magentacr reviews
    Started out as a cute and fluffy Sherlolly oneshot, but grew a mind of its own that wasn't so cute and fluffy. Sherlock fights fire with fire when Moriarty hurts Molly, but who will be the one who gets burned?

    Their Secret Ravel by V. C. Baskermoth reviews
    While Chon Lin is engaged on her quest for honor and revenge - Lord Rathbone searches for a way out of a very tangled web - Preferably alive. A carefully weaved 'side story' from the movie.

    The Fraudulent reviews
    Captain Kirk left Khan and Marla McGivers on Ceti Alpha V with the other 72 augments. Six years later, he learns that the planet is doomed to destruction. Sequel to fic "Sins of the Lion."

    Old Wounds reviews
    There is a reason Jim Kirk would eventually refer to Carol Marcus as an "old wound." One shot.

    Sins of the Lion reviews
    Before the USS Enterprise can commence its 5-year mission, it has one last task assigned to it: Deliver the cryo-tubes of Khan and his crew to a research facility. What Kirk and his crew don't expect is the flame from Khan's past named Marla McGivers. Sequel to fic "The Wrathful and the Sullen" and the film Star Trek Into Darkness.

    Would You Rather reviews
    Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy, and Mr. Spock enjoy an overly informative game of "Would You Rather..." Spock has trouble grasping the concept.

    Operation: Retcon! reviews
    An imagined version of what happened after Khan/Harrison surrenders on Kronos. There may also be a little "retroactive continuity" involved. (Filling in plot holes, that is.) I can't be the only one asking these questions after watching Star Trek Into Darkness. One-shot.

    One was born with the face of an angel, the other a head of death. But what if they were to exchange faces?
