Author has written 2 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, and Thor.
I read all reviews and PMs sent my way, and though I don't reply to them all, I appreciate each and every one of them. Also thanks to everyone who favourited/alerted my stories!
A bit about myself:
I'm a 22-year-old university student. My mother tongue is Finnish, but I write in English. Hopefully the flaws in language won't stop you from reading my work. Frequency of updates depends greatly on what else is going on in my life at the same time, though reviews help.
I tend to fall for misunderstood "villain" characters. Main fandoms of interest at the moment are ATLA and Thor/Avengers (for Loki). I've only published two stories, but I got others planned. Hopefully, I'll find time to get them on paper at some point, though for now I am focused on finishing the ones I've started.
I'll be posting mostly non-pairing fics, i.e. they might have romance in them, but that won't be the main plot. I usually put emphasis on family and friendship. I prefer to write long, multi-chapter stories rather than one-shots, because in a long story, there is more time for character development, and to build a cohesive and interesting plot.
I don't have a beta. I read my chapters through before posting them, and I sometimes do revisions on older chapters. The mistakes bug me, but I try not to let them, because too much self-criticism can take the fun out of writing. I'm more ambitious towards plot, narration, and character development than grammar and spelling.
Also, for sake of clarification, by 'I', I mean 'we', because I plan and write my stories in cooperation with another writer. We try to assimilate our writing styles by planning together and checking each other's work. Pretty much every chapter has writing from both.
AU to Thor movie, entirely movie-verse. Loki finds himself trapped in a situation he cannot control or save, and, instead of sending the Destroyer to Earth, he tries to escape his fate by ending his life. Angst, hurt/comfort, brotherly love, no pairings.
I was actually planning another fic for this fandom, but I found myself writing this first. I guess I needed an outlet for my frustration at how unfairly Loki was treated in both Thor and The Avengers.
Loki is really not much worse than some of the 'good guys', who think themselves superior to him and treat him like dirt. Loki is labeled a villain for being different, and no one is willing to give him a chance. His family won't take any responsibility for messing him up in the first place. Because, really, no one who didn't already fear and suspect that his parents didn't really love him would've immediately jumped to all the worst conclusions upon learning he's adopted, and then gone to such desperate lengths to prove his worth. I don't think Loki is evil, just really messed up, and I think I would be too if I had Odin for a father.
Dragon at Heart
ATLA story mostly about Prince Zuko, though it does feature the whole main cast of the show (and especially Iroh, Sokka and Toph). The plot has dragons, secret new powers, and tragic revelations, and we get to learn what happened to Zuko's mother. Zuko grows as a person a lot earlier than in the show.
The story gets more AU as it goes.
Pictures for Dragon at Heart
I have a DeviantArt account and I have posted an illustration for Dragon at Heart there. A link to the picture can be found below.
There are also two pictures that were drawn by other artists who have been inspired by this story. The upper one was made by Gamma Cavy, and the picture illustrates a scene from chapter 30. All praise and thanks goes to GammaCavy (DeviantArt) aka Gamma Cavy on this website!
The third picture is a wonderful drawing of Dragon Zuko made by Fluehatraya. Go check them out!
