Hi! My name's Violet Sky- welcome to my profile!
I'm seventeen in a month, live somewhere west of the Canadian prairies, go to high school, and want to be an archeologist or a history teacher sometime after that. I also travel a lot- and because of it, the first thing I ever really wrote was my travel journal. My ten-year-old humor was pure gold.
I also read a lot. That's all I do for my spares at school, and it is the best part of my day.
But mostly, I write. I write all the time and do because I love it! I didn't realize that until Grade 8 or 9 when my friends came to me for writing advice, and have been doing it ever since.
My writing schedule is wonky. Inspiration comes at the stupidest times for me- sometimes I publish four chapter in ten minutes or maybe one every week or so. It's weird, I know. But keep in mind that I write because I like to, and try to keep it that way. If it's not coming easily for me, the writing will be terrible. I think the best thing I've learned on this site is that writing is for you, not for anyone else. Others can see it, but everything you write should be a tiny reflection of you. If it's not, you're not writing for the right purpose.
I graciously accept and give reviews- I think it's a two-way street. I appreciate every one I've gotten, and really enjoy thanking you and answering any questions that you have. Don't hesitate! If you ever need something answered, feel free to PM me.
Another thing to add- I'm a follower of God. I'm a Christian, go to church, and try my very best to live that life to the full. I'm not going to shove my own religion down your throat in anything I write or say in an authors note, because I personally think it's the wrong way to go. But I'm putting it out there, and I'm not ashamed to put it here. Simple as that.

My stories that are still being updated...
Love Me: This one gets updated every couple of days, and if you've read it, you'll see why! Each chapter is different- sometimes in writing style or format (I've done everything from free-verse to entire ten page scenes on this one) but every one is based on and includes a letter from one character to another in the Harry Potter world. I gratefully accept requests for love me and will take any suggestions you have to offer. As I said before- this one has practically everything Harry Potter.
Smile: It's the End of the World: This one is a little trickier to explain. I had the idea of 'literatures best heroes' getting together to save the world for a long time, but finally managed to make a plan for it. Don't worry, I haven't abandoned it, although I haven't updated in a while. I will finish it, and am really looking forward to it. These chapters are fairly structured and will be a long one coming. But whenever I get a second to sit down with my notes, another chapter will be up.
Tears to Roses/When We Were Young: This one is my only chaptered Harry Potter story, and is based on the Marauders era. As of last summer, I made the decision to put it on hiatus and edit and pick up where I left off when I finished all that. Like Smile, updates for chaptered stories take a while for me to write up, but believe me in saying that I don't want this one to be unfinished forever.
Thank you so much, all of you. All of you who have read my stuff and bother to keep up with these rambling profiles. It's so cool, and I'm so glad to be involved in something as special and unique as Fanfiction. Thank you again!
