Author has written 6 stories for Merlin.

'Sup.

I used to have a long, boring profile (as some of you may know), and it started annoying me, so I crumpled up that paper and chucked it out the window. I rewrote it in an attempt to keep it fairly brief but still interesting. (I think it got a little out of hand on the craziness level as well, so I figured I'd spare you all the bleeding ears. Er, I mean eyes.)


About the Author


I am a silly, sleep-deprived teenage girl in northeastern US who enjoys frolicking about in the lovely world of procrastination. I'm essentially an extrovert pretending to be an introvert (unless it's the other way around), and I have an incredible number of pets who serve the dual purpose of bringing much joy into my life and loading me with work and expenses for pet care. Music is a large part of my life, whether it's playing drum set/percussion/piano or listening to some awesome tunes. I enjoy sleeping, watching illegal online movies, eating ice cream, taking photos, playing volleyball, yo-yoing, baking, and doing crafty/arty things; I despise 90% of the world’s fruits, general American stupidity, haters, push-ups, lab reports, and velvet. I'm Ravenclaw, Aquarius, 50% Swiss, and good with computers.

Affiliated fandoms include (in no particular order):
Merlin, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Sherlock, Newsroom, Homestuck, Percy Jackson, Spider-Man, Starkid, Harry Potter, Marvel, Newsies, Arrow, Downton Abbey, HTTYD, Forever, Star Trek 2009

Recommendable books (which can be separate from fandoms) include:
Harry Potter, Shiver Trilogy, Maximum Ride, Alex Rider, The Mysterious Benedict Society, Wolf Brother, The Schwa Was Here, The Night Circus, The Lovely Bones, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Book Thief, Pride and Prejudice, Lord of the Flies, Ender's Game

Genres of music found on my iPod usually include movie scores, alternative, pop, and showtunes. Some favorite artists/groups are:
Imagine Dragons, Fun, Hans Zimmer, Two Steps From Hell, Coldplay, U2, Starkid (yes, they count!), James Horner, John Powell

Oh, and I have a tumblr! Come talk to me, my url is not-the-third-switch (I'm still trying to decide on a good url so it might change now and then).


My Writing


Between my real life stuff ("what real life" they say) and my general laziness, I can be fairly slow at updating, as some of my earlier followers are well aware. I work on stuff when I have time/inspiration (my inspiration can be surprisingly unpredictable). I also use up way too much space writing meaningless ANs that nobody reads, so I'm trying to avoid that nowadays. I came to the decision that I prefer writing short one- or two-shots, so might be writing those more often than not, although I am working on planning out a rather long merlin fic on and off (it's pretty exciting, and if I ever get anywhere with it, I'll let you know).

Blind Trust is by far my most popular fic, and also my longest (guess that explains that), both of which are surprising since it was my first. I was honestly terrified to post my first fic, and I want to thank everyone for being amazing people and making it such a wonderful experience for me. Despite my glee at the feedback, however, I was incredibly negligent in being social and thankful and replying to reviews or talking to anyone. I aim to avoid that in the future and respond to at least the reviews that are meaningful and have depth. (Here's a mass thank-you to everyone who was neglected!)

I'm not writing a sequel to Blind Trust, but there is a companion fic, titled This City Never Sleeps at Night. Otherwise, I think I'm done with that particular AU, so probably no more from that story. Thanks for all the continuing support and praise, though! It still means the world to me every time I get to read a new review. :)

Beyond the Solitude IS FINALLY FINISHED!! I'm extremely sorry that I abandoned it for so long; I guess I lost interest in it. I started out wanting it to be a bit more interesting and unusual; it was supposed to be a one-shot that switched between A and M's perspectives, keeping you guessing and trying to figure it out until the very end when everything suddenly fits into place. Instead, it turned into a long, typical "Merlin captured by outlaws in the woods" story and I just became disinterested in finishing it. Anyway, I finished, so thanks to everyone who reviewed/favorited/followed or continues to do so. Y'all rock.


In Other News


I took down my poll of "Favorite Funny Scenes in Merlin Series 5". Thanks to the 17 voters! Top four results were as follows:

1 Merlin as a woman 9 » 16%
2 Arthur's face when Merlin starts juggling 8 » 14%
3 Merlin telling Leon that he and Arthur were doing poetry 8 » 14%
4 Merlin's face when Gaius says, "It's a woman" 6 » 10%


So, if you want to talk to me, feel free to send me a PM or a Tumblr message! Honestly, I am a super friendly, fun person who enjoys socializing with random internet strangers; don't be daunted by my vaguely serious attitude here (I originally wrote this when I was tired and hungry and supposed to be doing homework). Whether you want to learn more tidbits about my fascinating lifestyle, comment/discuss something I wrote, or just exchange some random onomatopoeia back and forth, totally go for it anytime. I also beta so those are very welcome.

Have a wonderful day! :D
