Author has written 3 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and Harry Potter.
Generally, I really like spending time reading and writing fanfics. I think that it allows people to stand up and write about things that express them about a particular action book or movie. Personally, my favourite kind of fanfics are romantic ones.
Also, I really want to be a writer. I know it's going to be tough, but I really want to convey emotions to my readers and make everyone able to simulate with the characters and understand the hardship. Generally, I believe i'm good at describing romantic feelings and I try to read as much as possible to get the hang of writing action scenes.
I'm the classic type of girl that reads fanfics to see romance along with action, but I get really angry when the author either 1)doesn't give enough moments of a couple or 2) breaks them up in the end.
By the way, I'm a HUGE Percabeth fan and if any of my readers of the story "Percy Jackson goes Hogwarts" are reading this allow me to tell you that each chapter will have Percabeth. It's just the way I roll.
My favourite authors are:
Rick Riordan: I love his style. He writes essential things, gives good descriptions of the situations and I absolutely love Percabeth. Any Percy Jackson story that doesn't involve Percabeth, like some Chaos stories don't grow easily on me, but I accept a good story when I read one. However, Rick kind of broke my rule no1 due to the few Percabeth moments in the PJO series. When he totally crossed the line, though, was with the Lost Hero. I love Jason Grace, don't get me wrong. It's just that I have such a deeply rooted affection for my resident underdog demigod that has risen to hero status that I find it hard to adore Jason, when he is like a Roman version of Percy. I could rant all day about it, but it won't help my shipper feelings. Just one thing. Blood of Olympus, I'm looking at you. Don't you dare kill Leo Valdez or Percabeth. I will find you.
J.K Rowling: Harry Potter is a legend. The end. I love it. I practically grew up with it. It is amazing and nothing less. The only thing I wish was a few more Harry/Ginny moments. At least, she showed the future in the end of the book.
Christofer Paolini: I only thank him for creating the Eragon universe. Nothing else. The ending completely disappointed me and made me wish I hadn't read the last book. And the reason for that is that he didn't show either what happened to Eragon in the end or got him together with Arya. I loved the other books, though.
Favourite fiction couples/ series couples:
Percabeth from PJO and HoO series
Eragon/Arya from The Inheritance Cycle
Harry/Ginny from Harry Potter, although I have no issue with Harry/Hermione, either.
Kataang from Avatar: The Last Airbender
Korra/Iroh from The Legend of Korra (Mako is being a huge jerk is season 2. Enough said. Also, these two would actually be pretty epic)
Olicity from Arrow
Captain America/Black Widow (I swear it's the movie's fault. What movie? Captain America: The Winter Soldier! It killed me...)
Hiccup/Astrid from How To Train Your Dragon
Tris/Tobias from The Divergent Trilogy
Sadie/Walt and Carter/Zia from The Kane Chronicles
TRY NOT TO CRY
Mommy...Johnny brought a gun to school,
He told his friends that it was cool,
And when he pulled the trigger back,
It shot with a great, huge crack.
Mommy, I was a good girl, I did what I was told,
I went to school, I got straight A's, I even got the gold!
When I went to school that day,
I never said good-bye.
I'm sorry that I had to go, But Mommy, please don't cry.
When Johnny shot the gun, he hit me and another,
And all because Johnny, got the gun from his brother.
Mommy, please tell Daddy; That I love him very much,
And please tell Zack; my boyfriend; That it wasn't just a crush.
And tell my little sister; That she is the only one now,
And tell my dear sweet grandmother; I'll be waiting for her now
And tell my wonderful friends; That they always were the best
Mommy, I'm not the first, I'm no better than the rest
Mommy, tell my teachers; I won't show up for class,
And never to forget this, And please don't let this pass
Mommy, why'd it have to be me? No one, though. deserves this.
But mommy, it's not fair, I left without a kiss.
And Mommy tell the doctors; I know that they really did try
I think I even saw one doctor, trying not to cry.
Mommy, I'm slowly dying, with a bullet in my chest,
But Mommy please remember, I'm in heaven with the rest
When I heard that great, big crack, I ran as fast as I could
please listen to me if you would,
I wanted to go to college, I wanted to try things that were new
I guess I'm not going with Daddy, On that trip to the new zoo
I wanted to get married, I wanted to have a kid,
I wanted to be an actress, I really wanted to live.
But Mommy I must go now, The time is getting late,
Mommy, tell my Zack, I'm sorry to cancel the date.
I love you Mommy, I always have, I know you know its true
And Mommy all I need to say is, "Mommy, I love you"
So, Please if you would,
If you pass this on,
Maybe people will cry and remember how blessed they truly are,
Just keep this in your heart,
For the people who didn't get to say "Good-bye".
Now you have 2 choices,
1) Pass this on, and show people you care, repost as
2) Don't send it, and you have just proven how
Sorry I'm copying this here, but some of this stuff really is important to readers and I apologise if I've broken any of the below mentioned rules.
The 27 Commandments of Fanfiction
1. Thou shalt not post a fic until it has been checked for grammar and spelling errors. The fanfiction gods hath given you a spellchecker on the computer for good reason. Use it. (My note: as much as I detest spellcheck- I've hear of cases where people meant to write shot and it wrote s-, its better than half the words being misspelled.)
2.Thou shalt not post a chapter of less than 100 words, unless it is a drabble. This displeases the masses.
3.Thou shalt not put author's notes in the middle of the story.
4.Thou shalt NEVER use text-speak in a fic, unless the characters are actually texting.
5.Thou shalt keep to one tense, and only one, throughout the story. Do not switch randomly.
6.Apply the above number 5 to POVs as well.
7. Thou shalt not get offended when someone makes fun of the crack pairing featured in your fanfiction. It probably is rather hilarious.
8.Thou shalt not use , ;, or :( in a fanfiction to show the emotion exhibited by a character.
9.Thou shall try-eth to keep characters in character!
10.Thou shall not treat every criticism as a flame.
11.The author's note is not a spot for your personal drama, and thou shalt not make it so.
12.Thou shalt not put any form of the phrase "first fic" in thy summary.
13. Thy created characters must not have names that exceed five syllables in length. Nor shall thy name have more than five words in length.
14. Thou shall not insert thyself into the story line as thyself or as a character- yes we know that you are in love with yourself and are very narcissistic, we just don’t want to read about how you end up with the main character.
15.If thou art writing a story that does not follow the original story line, point it out in the beginning.
16.Thou shall not make a person randomly smart or powerful unless stating a reason for the change (a good reason).
17.Thou shalt show and not tell.
18.Thou shalt not EVER use the phrase "I suck at summaries" in-est thine summary. This annoys thine readers.
19.Thou shalt not write the same way thou speak-est- writing is an art.
20.Thou shalt ALWAYS spell the word "okay" correctly. Using the letter "K" is an unacceptable compromise.
21. Thou shalt only use clichés when thou a) art writing a parody or b) find a new and interesting twist to make such clichés bearable to thine reader.
22. Thou shalt always separate dialogue from two separate speakers in two separate paragraphs. Otherwise thine readers shalt be confuse-ed.
23. Thou shalt not EVER make a chapter all one paragraph. THIS INFURIATES BOTH THINE READER AND THE FANFICTION GODS. They have given thee an ENTER key with good reason.
24. Thou shalt not write with thy caps lock on, it displeases the masses and causes thy readers to lose their vision and make angels weep.
25. Thou shalt know how to spell the character's names correctly before you writeth the fic. Misspelling the name of the main characters makes readers angry and distracts from the story.
26. Thou shalt not say in thine summary "summary inside". This shows lack of creativeness and infuriates the masses. The only exception is when a summary is cut short and a continuation of it lies inside.
27. Thou shall use paragraphs and space the story so it is not terrifyingly daunting to thine readers.
I really liked this game and I thought I could give it a shot. Here goes nothing:
List twelve of your favorite characters from your fandom, in no particular order.
1. Percy 2. Annabeth 3. Grover 4. Bianca 5. Nico 6. Thalia 7. Rachel 8. Beckendorf 9. Clarisse 10. Katie 11. Travis 12. Silena
Q1: Have you ever read a Six/Eleven fic? Do you want to? A: Thalia and Travis? No and nor do I want to! She's a hunter and I'm a Tratie fan.
Q2: Do you think Four is hot? How hot? A:No, I don't think so.
Q3: What would happen if Twelve got Eight pregnant? A: Yeah, well, I don't think Silena would get Beck pregnant... More like the other way around. But I would be glad! :)
Q4: Can you recall any fics about Nine? A: Not, really. Only appearances in fics centered around other stuff, mainly Percabeth.
Q5: Would Two and Six make a good couple? A: Annabeth and Thalia???? *faints* No. Just no.
Q6: Five/Nine or Five/Ten? Why? A: Well, Nico/Clarisse just screams wrong, so I guess Nico/Katie is more acceptable.
Q7: What would happen if Seven walked in on Two and Twelve making out? A: Rachel walked in on Annabeth and Travis making out? First, this'd better be an alternate universe. Second, if - by extreme coincidence and scheming of Aphrodite and the gods- it isn't, Rachel would run and tell Percy.
Q8: Make up a summary for a Three/Ten fic. A: Grover just broke up with Juniper who cheated on him with another satyr and run into an equally upset Katie who had just broken up with Travis. What'll happen? (This came out of nowhere, but I don't think it'll ever happen btw)
Q9: Is there any such thing as One/Eight fluff? A: Percy/Beckendorf???? Are you serious? Maybe someone has written something like that, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. But to me this is just not acceptable and plain wrong.
Q10: Suggest a title for a Seven/Twelve hurt/comfort A: Um... NO? MISTAKE? BRAIN SCARRING? Oh, well... DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU WISH TO BE SCARRED FOR LIFE.
Q11: Does anyone on your friends list read Three/Eight? A: Grover/Beckendorf? No way.
Q12: Does anyone on your friends list, write or draw Eleven? A: Yeah, probably in a group photo of Camp Half-Blood.
Q13: Would anyone on your friends list write Two/Four/Five? A: Annabeth/Bianca/Nico? WHAT ON EARTH! NO FREAKING WAY!
14: If you wrote a Song-fic about Eight, what song would you choose? A: Enrique Iglesias - Addicted. Don't know why. It just came to mind.
Q15: If you wrote a One/Six/Twelve fic, what would the warning be? A: Percy/Thalia/Silena? Ahem... WARNING: BRAIN SCARRING, UNREAL AND LIKELY TO MAKE YOU SCARED TO READ ANOTHER FANFIC!
Q16: When was the last time you read a fic about Five? A: Nico? Must have been a couple of moths ago or something. Maybe even more.
Q17: "(1) and (7) are in a happy relationship until (9) runs off with (7). (1), brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with (11) and a brief unhappy affair with (6), then follows the wise advice of (5) and finds true love with (12).
A: Percy and Rachel are in a happy relationship until Clarisse runs off with Rachel. Percy, brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with Travis and a brief unhappy affair with Thalia, then follows the wise advice of Nico and finds true love with Silena... Are you mental???
Q18: What title would you give this fic? A: I would never write something like that.
Q19: How would you feel if Seven/Eight were in a heated argument? A: Rachel and Beckendorf? Um... Beckendorf how are you even alive?
Q20: What would you think if you found (5) was a really good friend of a sibling or relative of yours? A: Nico? "I need to see him, immediately."
Q21: How would you react if you saw (8) and (11) in a closet together with a rubber ducky? A: Beckendorf and Travis... "What the- who are you alive? Are you planning a prank Stoll? Why the heck are you in a closet? WTF?!"
Q22: How would you feel if (2) dissed you in the worst possible way ever? A: Well, as much as I like Annabeth, I would have to retaliate verbally and physically.
Q23: If you saw (9) and (3) in bed together, what would you do? A: Clarisse/Grover... "WHAT THE HELL???"
Q24: You just came home from school and all of your friends hate you, your teacher just gave you an F on the most important project of the year (just imagine it happened for the smart alecks out there), and your parents have grounded you as your teacher had already called and told them of your grade. You open the door to your bedroom and you find (10) rummaging through your stuff. What do you do?
A: Katie? ... "How are you at my house? Why are you looking through my stuff? What's going on???"
Q25: What would you think if (1) was emo and had tried to slit his/her wrists? If (1) is already emo/slit his/her wrists already, what would you think if (1) became the most optimistic person in the world?
Q26: What would you feel this second if (4) gave you a daisy right now? A: Bianca? "How are you alive? How do you have a daisy?"
Q27: (6) has just stolen your hairbrush. What is the first thing you would say? A: Thalia... "You have spiky hair... Why do you need a hairbrush? And why mine?"
Q28: (7), (9), and (4) have banded together at 3 in the morning and starts to sing the most annoying song you know as loud as they can, waking you up. What is the first thing you think?
Q29: (2) and (11) are your teachers. What would you do? A: Annabeth and Travis... "YAY!!!!"

Here's a section of my profile to remember that everyone is being watched over... God exists people, we just need to have faith...
This is a story about God. Read if you believe in him, and read even if you don't.
A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won’t repost it?
So there was this missionary in Africa and he finds two guys fighting. So he breaks up the fight and one guy needs to go to the doctor so the missionary pays for it.
When he goes back home a few months later the people at his church tell him that they got the urge to pray for him so they got a group together and prayed. He asked the men who were there to stand up and they did. There were twenty six. The same amount of guards the man said he had.
Amazingly, whether you believe or not,
If you belive in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this.
When the house lights dimmed
and the concert was about to begin,
the mother returned to her seat and
discovered that the child was missing.
Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights
focused on the impressive Steinway on stage.
In horror, the mother saw her little
boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out
"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."
At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance,
quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy's ear,
"Don't quit. Keep playing"
Then, leaning over, Paderewski reached
down with his left hand and began filling
in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached
around to the other side of the child,
and he added a running obbligato.
Together, the old master and the young novice
transformed what could have been a frightening situation
into a wonderfully creative experience.
The audience was so mesmerized that they couldn't
recall what else the great master played.
only the classic,
"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."
Perhaps that's the way it is with God.
What we can accomplish on
our own is hardly noteworthy.
We try our best, but the results aren't always
graceful flowing music. However, with the
hand of the Master, our life's
work can be beautiful.
The nexttime you set out to accopmlish great feats,
listen carefully. You may hear the voice of the
Master, whispering in your ear,
"Don't quit. Keep playing."
May you feel His arms around you and
know that His hands are there, helping you
turn your feeble attempts into true masterpieces.
Remember, God doesn't seem to
call the equipped, rather, He equips the 'called.'
Life is more accurately measure by the lives you touch
than by the things you acquire.
So touch someone by passing this little message along.
May God bless you and be with you always!
Girl: Slow down, I'm scared!
Guy: No,this is fun.
Girl: No, it's not. Please, I'm scared.
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: I love you, now slow down!
Guy: Now give me a big hug.
She gives him a big hug
Guy: Can you take off my helmet and put it on yourself, it's bothering me.
In the newspaper the next day, a motorcycle had crashed into a building because of break failure. Two people were on it and only one survived. The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized his break wasn't working but he didn't want the girl to know. Instead he had her hug him and tell him one last time that she loved him. Then he had her put on his helmet so that she would live even if he died. Copy this onto your profile if you would do the same thing for someone you love.
RACISM IS WRONG
Racism is wrong and can often sometimes destroy peoples self confidence its a horrible and cruel way to treat people to prove that we are all alike try this simple experiment: hold you hand up to a light of some kind and you'll see a shadow cast nearby now have someone of a different race hold they're hand up too you'll see essentially the same image five fingers and a palm skin color doesn't matter when you get right down to it. If you are against racism copy and paste this into your profile
