Author has written 30 stories for Harry Potter, Legend of Zelda, Pirates of the Caribbean, Shakespeare, Firefly, Supernatural, and Arrow.

I am Duckie, known on Livejournal as patita_fea.

Some of the older work here makes me want to drag it down and edit it within an inch of its life -- I was in eighth grade when I posted my first story here, okay? -- but I figure it's good to remember where I started. After all, people told me I could write when I was thirteen. (Liars!) Occasionally I'm told the same thing now. Think I'm gonna get duped twice?

All feedback is very much appreciated, particularly if you tell me what didn't work for you. (Embarrassed note: anything that hasn't been updated in more than six months is probably not going to be. Probably.)

Hope you enjoy the stories.
