Author has written 55 stories for Twilight, Misc. Plays/Musicals, Hunger Games, and Pretty Little Liars.
I talk too much, and since it's not socially acceptable to run my mouth all day long unless I'm a straight, white male, I'm a writer. Until I can find something productive to do with all these thoughts whirring through my head and all these words wanting to flow from my mouth, I go to high school, five days a week, for nine months, where I'm the typical Melinda Sordino, thinking dark thoughts and disliking pretty much everyone. When I'm not in school and not writing, I'm blogging. And tweeting. Blogging and tweeting, tweeting and blogging. I'm sometimes not in the mood to, but I'm always in the mood to . Tumblr does wonders. I tend to blog and tweet about the things that interest (or annoy) me, like Taylor Lautner, Lana Del Rey, Marina and the Diamonds, fandoms, etc. Fandoms are fucking crazy. To sum myself up, I feel like I'm the worst so I always act like I'm the best. Sorry 'bout it.
To formally introduce myself, I am HalcyonSeasons, formerly known as MusicTwilightLove. I was not particularly happy about the latter penname, because it's fairly generic and I was in a rush to come up with a penname, but at least it's not my real name, right? Thinking on the bright side, ya know. Anyway, my old penname was shortened to MTL, which is what I used to call myself. But now, I am HalcyonSeasons. It's funny to actually pronounce, but I think it looks lovely. However, if you want to call me by an actual name, you may call me Dee. It's a nickname of a nickname, originated from my younger brother. He just gets lazier and lazier with his nicknames for me, but I love him. My avatar has nothing to do with my penname, but at least I love that. Palm trees in black and white... It's inspired by a lyric I enjoy, but also because it represents my stories in a way, every time. It's kind of like a lost, dark paradise, and I fancy that because I can see that in all of my stories. Am I morbid? I don't know, but I love palm trees (and I've even seen them in person, when I went to California for the first time a little while ago), I love things in black and white (like the Psycho movie, since you can't go wrong with that), and I love palm trees in black and white.
I've always loved writing, ever since I was little and the idea of Twilight (and the idea of Jacob and Bella smut) hadn't wrapped itself around my head. For the past few years, my original characters have always sounded like Bella and Jacob, my plotlines were always sounded like the plots of the Twilight movies and novels, and I was entirely inspired by Twilight. Now, who needs that when fanfiction is around? Praise da LAWD. Stephenie Meyer personally victimized me with the butchering she did with the character of Jacob Black. I could never forgive her for that. The land of fanfiction is where I belong, since I believe that my headcanon, along with other Jella shippers' headcanons make more sense.
Following that, I'm 100% Team Jacob. You couldn't get me to like Edward more even if you bribed me with all the pizza in the world. *Bella voice* "It's him. It's always been him." I'm always conflicting with myself if I prefer Jacob to be with Bella or for him to be alone, and I gotta admit that if you put Bella/Edward against Bella/Jacob, I would pick Jella every time. I love Jacob no matter who he's with, whether it's Leah or Bella or Edward or Renesmee (okay, no, I lied about that), but Jella is impeccable. I loved the part in Breaking Dawn - Part 1 where Jacob popped up at Bella's wedding reception. Bella looked happier in those few minutes with Jacob than she did in four movies with Edward. I think the better choice is obvious. Jake's just better for Bella, but then again, she doesn't exactly deserve people who love her as much as Edward and Jacob do. I'm always torn between loving and not loving Jella. I love, love, love, love, LOVE Jacob. He comes before anything else. He is... just everything. He is at the top of my love pyramid, the center of my heart. But Jella... gah. Jella's got a place in my heart, too. I just want Jake to be happy, and for some of the time, Bella made Jacob happy. At the same time, though, I'm terrible. I am so indecisive. I ship Jella so hard it hurts like a bitch, but I hate Bella so much I don't know what to do. HELP.
In all honesty, when I first heard of fanfiction, it scared the shit out of me. I was about thirteen years old (yeah, I'm probably younger than you initially thought I was; I get that a lot), and I was so into Twilight it almost hurt (and I think I still am). I was scared of people ruining the beloved series I quickly came to love over the summer before the New Moon movie came out, so I didn't want to touch it. However, after that school year, I started reading fanfiction when I had nothing else to read. I fell in love. I didn't take it seriously in the beginning; I was all about the parodies. I used to write Twilight book parodies - like, fanfiction before I knew what it was - and when I saw it on this site, I was like, "Hey, these people are just like me!" Then I got serious and started reading Bella/Edward angst. I had such a thing for it, which gave me the idea for my first fanfic ever, Destructive Desire. I've always been an anti-Bella/Edward person (but that's different now, I promise), and after getting into an online argument with other talkative Twihards about their relationship, the idea was born. I first started writing it on a word document titled "Untitled Fanfic," and I knew I had an ending. It didn't change, even as I never finished that first draft. After getting the balls to start posting the story on here, I started posting. When I look back on the early days of Destructive Desire, I cringe. It was crap. Absolute, diabolical crap. But I kept going, anyway, and that's the end of it. After finishing Destructive Desire (and a few other one-shots, as well as DD's prequel), I thought, Hey, I think I might be going somewhere with this, and I did. Today, I can barely think of a time when I wasn't writing. Writing's a constant thing, though; you're always doing it, whether it's for fun like on here, or for an essay for school, or for a job application, or anything, you're never not writing. That's what I love the most about writing: you can always, always, always improve, and I work on that. I like to top myself, and it's one hell of a triumph when I do. As of now, I'm just a little high schooler who writes over breaks, the weekends, and sometimes when I'm supposed to be doing homework. Like I said, I'm not good at original fiction; fanfiction's my thing, and I don't feel like stopping until I reach a hundred stories. Maybe I'll rest then.
I would like to say I'm just a Twilight writer, but my crossovers have proven otherwise. I would also like to say that I'm just a Jella writer (you know, Jacob/Bella, not Kristen Stewart's vicious cat), but my various pairings have also proven otherwise. I don't even know. I write what I feel. You've got the writers who solely write Edward/Bella or solely write other canon couples... Like, mix it up a bit, ya know? That's at least how I feel. Change up the pairings. Try something new. In fact, just do whatever you want. Kudos to those who write only Edward/Bella. I just find that couple - and the characters alone - very basic in canon. I've never been very inspired by their characters to write something new about them.
I don't do writing competitions, nobody knows who I am, I'm not famous for anything I write, and nothing I've ever written is famous. What is fame, anyway, though, if we're all just regular people when we're not glued to our computers or cell phones or notebooks, writing stories? I am always going to be that one writer who writes a thousand fanfics but will never receive much praise because my stories just aren't good enough, no matter how hard I work. I will always work hard, though. That's my promise to you. However, I do enjoy reading stories a lot. I always review, because I feel the need to say what I feel or say nothing at all. And, oh boy - there are some great stories here. I also love, love, LOVE to beta-read stories! I've never gotten a beta before (I'm a wuss), but I love to help other writers. If you have a job for me, let me know!
Anyway, I like to write fanfics. Duh. I'm not a popular writer because I don't write amazing smut (or smut, period) or amazingly angsty, ooc plots, and I'm not in that amazing age range of 20-30 fabulous years old yet. But I'm a writer. I get inspired by music. I get inspired by love. I get inspired by real stories. I get inspired by the Saga itself. I try to find inspiration in everything. I think about writing most of the time, and I get lost in my own mind. "Your imagination is your greatest tool to success," as Lana Del Rey said.
A lot of the things I write are named after songs, or song lyrics. I'm cheap in that way.
Don't ask me why.
