Author has written 1 story for Lord of the Rings.

BREAKING NEWS:

1/25/13: Ancient has been removed temporarily from this site for revision and continuation and will be re-uploaded at a later date.

2/1/15: The Light Within is being updated! I am writing again, but have decided to post all the chapters at the end, all at once. You'll basically all get one giant inbox spam at that time. Thanks for the patience.

Hi all-

I am casual writer that writes when the mood strikes me. No schedule. No plan. Just writing what I like. If anyone reads my work, please know that I do not write for YOU, but for ME. I love and appreciate the support of awesome readers, but I do this because I have the time and the inclination, not because I'm being paid to work a schedule. I wish I could be one of those writers who updates like clockwork but that's not me. I admittedly have a widely-roving muse that takes me into many different fandoms at different times, and I really have a hard time staying on one project at a time. However, no fiction I place on this account will be unfinished, and that is a promise!

It is my great and hopeful desire to improve my writing through this account.

I never realized how difficult writing actually is until I started writing my own fanfictions. I tend to write off the cuff instead of ahead of time, which means I'm always having to go back and add in things I decide I missed before as a story goes on. I am constantly revising my work to make it more readable and appealing. Starting stories is e.a.s.y. - finishing can be difficult when you find yourself uninspired. Props to all those accomplished fan fic-ers out there. It's amazingly difficult and you guys do it best!

I definitely appreciate my amazing followers, who support me even when I veer off into something else or stop for a while altogether. You guys are awesome!

A little about me: I am a 23-year-old teacher living on the East Coast with my dog. My hobbies include video gaming (World of Warcraft, Skyrim, Star Wars: The Old Republic, etc), reading, watching movies and tv shows on Netflix, and writing. I absolutely adore all things teaching, and have been known to sit back and read teacher blogs ALL. NIGHT. LONG.


Some of my favorite fandoms/ships:

Harry Potter: I greatly enjoy sticking to bookverse, and my favorite characters to read/write about are Hermione Granger, Theodore Nott, Sirius Black, and Blaise Zabini. I feel like J.K Rowling left us readers with a great deal to work with in regards to writing about these characters. Her world is so vivid and the possibilities within it are endless.

Lord of the Rings: I love any and all Tenth Walker fics as long as the OC is not a Mary-Sue and at least attempts to answer logical questions that would exist in such situations that are presented. I love playing with non-canon characters and pairings and imagining up all the details of their lives. My favorite characters are Éomer, Aragorn, Faramir, and Celeborn.

Twilight: I loathe Bella/Edward stories with a passion - Stephanie Meyers' books ruined them for me as a pair. Bella is a MS from hell in my book. I will only read Bella/Jacob or Bella/other wolf stories IF she is far, far, far from her canon personality. All other AU pairings I greatly enjoy.

Inuyasha: Sesshoumaru/Kagome; AU is the best!

Dark-Hunters: Love them all, but my favorite stories involve Savitar and the Weres.

True Blood: Eric/Sookie, Godric/OC, Eric/OC. I really enjoy a good Alcide story as well.


Beta-Reading: I would LOVE to beta-read any romance/angst/supernatural/etc fan fiction! I am open to anything, but I prefer M/F pairings only. My stomping-grounds: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Twilight, Band of Brothers, Inuyasha, Dark-Hunters, Carpathians, X-Men. My ability to beta-read is not limited, however, to these categories. Please shoot me an e-mail if you are interested in my beta-reading services!


A Note on Reviews: I will not respond to reviews that demand updates. I write on my own schedule, and while I will always finish stories published here, it will be done if and when I want to write about a particular story. Some weeks I'll post a HUGE load of chapters cause I don't have much going on, and other weeks you may not see an update at all. Be patient if that happens. Pushy/nasty readers make for unhappy writers, people. That said, I do always enjoy hearing how much you are just dying to read my next chapter. That's motivation!

A Note on Flames: Flame reviews (reviews that do nothing but trash story content and offer no constructive advice) will be summarily deleted. Though they are, thankfully, rare, I will not tolerate being berated for writing a story that doesn't follow readers' guidelines/ideas of how my story in a given fandom should be written. I am very clear about the content of a given story in announcing its tags and in beginning author's notes. While I welcome all open-minded readers and their constructive criticism, I do not invite readers who will knowingly dislike the content of my stories to read them.
