Author has written 6 stories for Alex Rider, Harry Potter, Legend of Zelda, and Final Fantasy VIII.

Name: Chris
Location: United Kingdom
Occupation: Deck Officer in the Merchant Navy (Merchant Marine, for our American cousins)

I've been writing since I was bought my first laptop at the tender age of 13. I started off with original fiction, but I found that I had a problem creating believable characters. The remnants of those stories are buried on a floppy disk drive somewhere, never to see the light of day again, and if you know what a floppy disk is then it might tell you something about how long I've been doing this.

Then I discovered fan fiction. In specific, it was Harry Potter fan fiction that got me thinking – back around the time of OotP. There were so many options open to fan fiction writers with regards to directions you could take a Harry Potter story at that point that you could almost call it a golden age. If you trawl back through the archive of fan fiction to that period (2003-05) you'll find many writers pick up and run with the idea of the Sword of Gryffindor being central to the Harry Potter story. Many-a-fic did I read that involved Harry mastering the art of swordplay in order to defeat the best swordsman of the age – Tom Riddle. It's interesting that even back then the Harry/Ginny pairing was quite strong. I guess writers also picked up and ran with the 'Nothing-says-I-will-someday-fall-in-love-with-you-like-saving-you-from-a-basilisk-infested-dungeon-when-you-were-11-and-I-was-12' plot line.

However, the first story I ever published was in the newly-created Alex Rider section. The story – UNITI – is still floating around, annoyingly close to completion despite my lackadaisical efforts at updating it. I have vowed to myself that I will finish it, someday. I have a plan written down somewhere...

I soon moved into Harry Potter fan fiction, which I had been experimenting with, but hadn't been brave enough to actually post. They weren't particularly good and I removed them within a year, but I got some helpful feedback that I poured into new stories, culminating in the stories Flights of Fancy, which was written well before the Deathly Hallows was released, and Fruition of Erised, which was a one-shot that I wrote in its entirety in about half an hour.

With the Harry Potter saga complete, Deathly Hallows answering many of the questions that we had thrived on to inspire us, I was then drawn into to writing novelizations, mainly of games. The Legend of Zelda – Ocarina of Time has always been one of my favourites, and I have a fully fleshed out plan for a novelization, but only the bare bones of the story have been written.

More recently I have started experimenting with Final Fantasy VIII, another of my favourite games. I decided to do something different this time – set a few years after the end of the game, I trialled an episodic chapter system that made each ‘chapter’ a self contained short story in its own right, but with an overarching storyline that held all the episodes together, like a TV series. 'Garden - A Final Fantasy Series' is what came of that, and it is this piece that I'm devoting much of my free time to at the moment. The ‘pilot episode’ is posted, and I have a few more episodes in various stages of completion. I'm really quite excited about it, and hopefully when I complete the first series and post it there will be people who agree.

I hope anyone reading this has enjoyed hearing about my development as a fan fiction writer, and if you have any questions, I’m only a PM away.
