"We don't fight for ourselves. We fight for who and what we love. And if there's any chance to save them, we have to take it. Because they deserve nothing less than our absolute best, and by all the gods of all the universes that's what I plan to give to you and the others. My absolute best. Always."
-Nicholas Gautier, to Caleb Malphas.
ABOUT ME: I'm LinariteLavanya, also called Lulu, Lin, Lina, or LL by some friends on this site who think my full username is too much to type. :D I love to write, whether it's fanfiction or my own stories. I also love music, video games, languages, hamsters, mythology, hockey, and a million other things. XD I was regrettably absent from this site for a stretch, but have returned after a too-long hiatus (and I like to think my writing has improved). My favorite fics are usually OC fics; there's just something nice about making your own characters and setting them loose upon an unsuspecting universe. XD
I'm on Archive of Our Own under the username MYuzuki (and all pseuds attached to it), on Inkitt under my same username LinariteLavanya (although I'm honestly never over there), and on tumblr under the username yuzukimist (the blog itself is called Moonlit Ramblings, with no connection to the person with Moonlit Ramblings as a username) and I have posted there some bonus stuff to accompany my stories; you can find a list of bonus content right below this ABOUT ME section, in an appropriately titled section called BONUS CONTENT. I also have a fictionpress account under the username LazuliLarisa, but with the exception of an unfinished short story called Love Me Like You Mean It (which I have since pulled because I re-wrote it and published it), everything I have on there is really old, unfinished, and of questionable quality. I have plans to re-do all of the writing on there eventually, but who knows when that'll be. XD
To get to my announcements just scroll, it's right after this. My announcements are generally important, so you may want to go have a look. I can only come on here a couple times a week now, but I'll do my best to keep this page updated. :D
I also run a Community, Calling All Original Characters. Originally a C2 for just Stargate: Atlantis OC fics, I have expanded it to include all good OC fics, no matter the category. It matters not whether you're writing for Merlin, Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Naruto, Originals, Yu Yu Hakusho, Teen Wolf, Person of Interest, Supernatural, Frozen, Guild Hunter or anything else under the sun: if you're writing a good OC fic, I would love to have it included with the rest of the archive. If you have an recommendations, just let me know. :D I could also use some staff members, maybe, if anyone's interested.
I also run a forum called The Roadhouse. It's a nifty little forum where you can stop by to advertise your story, ask for advice, or even just chat with other users. I haven't had many visitors lately, but I'm always happy for people to come on by. ;)
And I also run a Persona RP that sort of fell into disuse when I went on hiatus. I'm currently trying to revive it, with both old members and new members if anyone's interested in joining. If you're interested, drop on by: it's called Tournament of Souls: A Persona RP. (We're still the 14th listing out of 56 despite having been inactive for over three years, so I guess that's a good sign, right? XD)
Feel free to PM me about anything! I'm a friendly person, and I love to talk to you guys. :D
ANNOUNCEMENTS (updated January 17th, 2017)
Guys, guess what?! I'm officially published! Like, for real! Thanks to Amazon KDP, I've got my short story Love & Trust up for sale an an ebook on amazon.com! Isn't this so exciting?! I'm so excited! :D I'm also going a promotional giveaway, meaning that if you PM me and tell me you're interested and would like to read my story, I can "gift" it to you through amazon. All I really need is a valid email address and then amazon does the rest. :D I would like to ask that you leave a review on the amazon page if you enjoyed the story after reading it, but that's just because I adore getting feedback. XD The sequel to Love & Trust, titled Following the Road home, is now published and available for sale as well. :D I'm currently working on the third int eh series, Shadows of the Past, and hope to have it finished and published soon.
Chapter 5 of Echoes of Remembrance has been posted! Starting now, it is going to be on a bi-monthly update schedule, mostly because I have a college class starting up at the end of the month and I don't want to overwork myself. ;D
Chapter 3 of my Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji fic, Atonement, has been posted. Not sure when Chapter 4 will be up because my Yugioh plot bunnies spooked the Black Butler bunnies and they all ran off. ;D As of 12/23 I am still trying to coax aforementioned plot bunnies to come out of hiding; thus far, no luck. XD
Chapter 97 of Inevitable has been posted! Way later than I intended, but at least it's there now! XD Chapter 98 should be up within a week. :) Enjoy! And once the final chapter of Inevitable has been posted, I'm going to continue posting the remainder of the screenshots. And as previously mentioned, there is a sequel in the works for Inevitable; it's currently in the brainstorming process, but my current plan is to have two smaller sequel stories (basically an EzBekah wedding and a Zolijah wedding), followed by a full-length sequel titled Legacies. There's also going to be a spin-off centering around Sirena, but I can't say anything else about that right now, because of spoilers. Also because it's still in the brainstorming stage. XD
[Also, a massive thank you to Elejah88 (previously bulldozed88) for coining the shipping names for the pairings in Inevitable: Zolijah and EzBekah, as well as Klezra (the Klaus & Ezra friendship). Thank you~ :D]
As always, there's bonus content for Inevitable (and Infinitas) on my tumblr and AO3 if anyone's interested; ffnet's giving me attitude about my links again, so I included the web addresses just in case; just scroll up and check out the bonus content section. XD I also have a youtube playlist titled (un-creatively) Inevitable Playlist under my youtube username YuzukiMist; check it out if you're curious to see the music I listen to while writing!
Chapter 22 of Elaria has been posted. Chapter 23 will be posted...at some point in the future. Sorry guys, that's all I've got. I'm struggling to write the next chapter of this right now, more than I would have expected; I think I'm having trouble because I'm so immersed in Inevitable (and Infinitas) right now that it's hard to switch from vampires and werewolves (and Duel Monsters) to spaceships and politics. But rest assured, an update is on the way, I promise. It's just taking a little while. Sorry!
Also, I'm doing an overhaul of Those Who Defend in my (increasingly limited XD) spare time, just because I've been meaning to go back and touch up all the old chapters for that and catching up on the FFXV trailers has put me in a Final Fantasy mood. XD Anyway, I'm going to be re-posting/replacing all the old chapters with the newer and better edited versions as I go along, so stay tuned for that. ;) So far I've got Chapters 1-5 re-written and posted, with Chapter 6 to be posted...sometime in the future. No one seems to really care about TWD, so I'm not feeling that drive to post frequently. Sorry. XD Still, any and all feedback would be much appreciated.
I've posted a sketch I did of Riko from Persona: Path of Discovery on my tumblr, so please check it out if you've got a second to spare! And I'm also doing more stuff for Elaria and Inevitable on my tumblr now, too, including some amateur quotepics and various other little things. It's mostly all Inevitable right now, since that's my focus. Swing on by if you've got a second. And be prepared to be inundated with a million other things that fascinate me on tumblr. :D The pictures/fanart I do for Inevitable can also be found on my AO3 account (username MYuzuki), so if you'd rather find it there, be my guest. :)
I've also done a video trailer for my Arc-V fic, Infinitas, which can also be found on my tumblr. ;D
Persona: Path of Discovery, and Belief are all set to be updated as soon as possible. I can't specify an exact date/time frame because of my work schedule (and all the stressful ridiculous stuff that's involved with moving and living in a motel until I find a new place), but know that I'm doing my best. So...I suppose technically they are on hiatus, even though I plan to update them as soon as I can.
Adelaide, Did You Find Joy?, Forgiveness, Heart of Ice, Lorelai, and The Child are all still going to be on temporary hiatus until further notice, unfortunately. Camelot Academy is also back on indefinite standby for the moment. Sorry. It's not because I don't love these stories, it's simply that I can't juggle my job, my family and friends, AND eleven fics all at once. I've come to the realization that I can really only dedicate myself to two fics at a time without making myself absolutely insane, and at the moment those fics are Elaria and Inevitable. And even those I am struggling to keep up with, simply because of real life obligations (between work and family I don't have as much free time anymore; add in the fact I'm finally back in school and trying to keep up with my classes and my head may just explode). Also, all those older stories are of relatively poor quality compared to my current writing, so I'd rather you guys not judge too harshly if you read them. Honestly, I'd pull them down if not for the fact that there are still a handful of people waiting for updates and I don't want to lose that readership when I finally go back and re-work everything. XD
IN THE FUTURE:
I have plans to do a Yugioh 5D's fic sometime in the future. I'm very excited about it and feel strongly about it, but I can't really get started on it right now because 1) I have prior fic obligations, like Inevitable and 2) I had TONS of brainstorming for it, but... it's in a spiral notebook. Which is now in storage, along with a lot of my other writing. So I need to take a day (or several) and go through my storage unit to find that box. And then spend another month brainstorming and editing because that's how I roll. XD Also, 3) real life is kicking my butt right now. Like, seriously. Just when I think I've accomplished something, here comes Life, to kick me over and go "haha, loser, just kidding." I adore life and living and everything, but sometimes it's just a bit too much. So that's a factor, too. XD
I've also been attacked by X-Men plot bunnies, so we'll see where that goes, I guess. XD Currently I've written about six or seven chapters of an OC fic (that also has Erik and Charles, because Cherik for the win), and I've got a good feeling about it so far. I think I'll wait to post any of it until I have more buffer chapters ready to go, though. XD
I've also been attacked by Dominion (the show, not the game) plot bunnies, and the cancellation has inspired me to do a continuation fic. With OCs, of course, because that's all I ever do. XD Currently I've only got like five chapters written so far, so I doubt I'll post anything soon. And when I do finally post something I doubt updates will come terribly often, but we'll see. XD I did create and post a snazzy video trailer for the story on my tumblr, but whether I actually post any chapters anytime soon is anyone's guess. :P
AND (don't laugh, people, the plot bunnies have no mercy for me, at all) I'm still wrestling with various Dark-Hunter fic ideas. My original plan was for a trilogy of fics that I already had mostly sketched/plotted out and such, but regrettably it was all written down in notebooks that are stuck in storage at the moment. Luckily, I've also developed a more recent Dark-Hunter fic idea that is not dependent upon pages of old brainstorming...so that might crop up in the future depending on my workload. So far I have some basics worked out and a nice cover image if I ever get anything actually written for it. XD
I've also recently started writing a Now You See Me fic, but I have recently imposed upon myself a rule of "Until you have 10 chapters written up and ready to go, Lulu, you don't get to start posting that!". That way, even if the plot bunnies scamper away, I have at least a month or so to herd them up again. XD (That rule seems to have slipped my mind in regards to my Teen Wolf fic, but I feel like I can excuse myself...because reasons. ;D).
I've also got like a dozen different fic idea for Skyrim, but I don't know when I'll get around to writing them. XD
Character Profiles: Inevitable OCS
Birthdate: March 27, 1977.
Daughter of Rina Storme and Lucas Volkov. Half werewolf, half witch. Dark brown hair, green eyes that glow gold when her inner wolf is on the rise. Is a very powerful sorceress, but fears using her magic too much because of a bad history of magical addiction. Is very protective of her twin brother Ezra and will not hesitate to do whatever she must to protect both him and herself. Develops a strong affection for Elijah Mikaelson after moving to New Orleans and becoming ensnared in the Mikaelson family shenanigans. Is currently on the run from Reginald Storme, her uncle who wants to capture her and her brother for reasons unknown.
Birthdate: March 27, 1977.
Son of Rina Storme and Lucas Volkov. Half werewolf, half witch. Dark brown hair, green eyes. Like his sister, his eyes will glow gold when his werewolf side rises; unlike his sister, his wolf exists as a separate part of his personality and his eyes will turn bright blue when his wolf is entirely in charge. Unlike his sister who leans more towards traditional sorcery, Ezra is a Wiccan practitioner and while he is not as powerful as Zoe, he possesses a knack for the more intricate spells and magical workings that his sister can't pull off. Develops a strong affection for Rebekah Mikaelson after moving to New Orleans and becoming ensnared in the MIkaelson family drama, but is largely unable to pursue a relationship with her because of baggage from his previous relationship with the psychotic Shadow Coven witch Sirena Espina. Is currently on the run from Reginald Storme, his uncle who wants to capture him and his sister for reasons unknown.
Pale blonde hair and blue eyes. A member of the Shadow Coven who seduced Ezra in an attempt to capture him and deliver him to Reginald Storme, the twins' uncle and most dangerous enemy. Specializes in poisons and slowly destructive magics, but has since learned more attack magics. Is something of a psychopath, and incredibly prone to stabbing others in the back to serve her own purposes.
As always, feel free to PM me anytime; I'm more than happy to answer any questions anyone has or even to just chat. I can only get on a couple times a week, but I always answer any messages I get eventually. No matter what else is going on in my life, hearing from all of you is something I always look forward to. :D
