Author has written 10 stories for Alex Rider, and Merlin.
So, now it's time for the annual profile update.
My name is Cloud-dee and I'm a teenage girl living in the west of Scotland. I am currently not working on any fanfiction as Merlin has ended so I will no longer be writing for that fandom. Right now I am involved in a few other fandoms (*cough* supernaturalandstartrek *cough*) but I haven't written any fanfiction for them yet. Typically, being British, I also love many of the shows from the BBC like Doctor Who and Sherlock and may end up writing for them someday too.
Unfortunately, real life is getting in the way of my writing and my muse has run away screaming so there will be no new stories in the foreseeable future. However I really do love writing and I'm sure someday I'll be back. If you have any questions about my stories, requests for anything you'd love to see written, or just want to say "Hi", feel free to drop me a PM.

Lastly, look at this awesome way someone described Fanfiction. I think it's perfect!
"Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker.

The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language."-Lev Grossman, TIME, July 18, 2011
