Author has written 49 stories for Gundam Wing/AC, Harry Potter, That '70s Show, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Sailor Moon, Yu Yu Hakusho, Stargate: SG-1, Heroes, and Twilight.
I began reading and writing FanFiction in 1998. My first FanFic stories were about Hanson, but I don't write that anymore. I'm an optimistic and cheerful person which can sometimes be annoying - or so I've been told. I'm a cat person - I've had cats since forever. I'm an avid reader and have been reading since before I started kindergarten.
I play video games though I'm not a gamer. I play Pokemon (which I've been playing for the last 15 years or so - the first Pokemon game I played was Pokemon Blue on Gameboy Pocket), Final Fantasy (10 is my favourite.) I like RPG's the best. I also like fighting games - Soul Calibur, King of Fighters. I prefer to watch my hubby play games than to actually play them myself - he's a serious gamer. :) I also occasionally dabble in table-top RPGs.
I like a lot of different things: reading, writing and music are at the very top. I could not live without my music and I like everything from Hanson to Metallica and Eminem to Garth Brooks. I take my iPhone with me everywhere.
I make wallpapers and manipulations. You can see all my artwork under the name AnnikaCullen at DeviantArt. Most of my manipulations are of the Potterverse people - mostly Hermione and Ginny. Though I haven't posted my wallpapers yet.
I have some MAJOR obsessions: HARRY POTTER, Stargate: SG-1, TwilightBuffy: The Vampire Slayer.
Favourite TV Shows: Anything by Joss Whedon, Stargate: SG1, Stargate: Atlantis, Xena: Warrior Princess, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Supernatural
I *LOVE* musicals! For example Rodger's & Hammerstein's Cinderella, High School Musical, Once More With Feeling (The Buffy: The Vampire Slayer musical), Repo! The Genetic Opera, Wicked, RENT, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and The Bitter Suite (The first Xena: Warrior Princess musical)
I endorse EWE. Which stands for Epilogue? What Epilogue? It's a fairly common concept in the Potterverse. I don't like OBHWF - makes me want to heave. The Harry/Ginny part is the reason why I don't like OBHWF.
I don't like Harry/Ginny because it seems like a forced relationship. Also it seems to me that Harry/Ginny is saying that Harry has an Oedipus complex. I'm sure that's not how Jo K Rowling intended it, but that's what I think. The exception to that is that Harry doesn't hate his father for marrying his mother. Oedipus is a character in Greek mythology that unknowingly killed his father and married his mother. Most with the Oedipus Complex have libidinous feelings towards their mother and hate their father for that reason. The female version of the Oedipus Complex is the Electra complex. So in conclusion Harry/Ginny is too much like James/Lily IMHO. Also, Ginny spent nearly six books barely talking to Harry and in HBP she was like Super!Ginny and suddenly Harry wanted her. It makes the kind of sense that doesn't. That's what I think anyway...
I don't care for most 'ships that are based on dislike or hate. For example Daniel Jackson/Vala Mal Doran from Stargate: SG1. I have to make some exceptions to that - I like Gryffindor/Slytherin 'ships.
I don't care for incest. However, I do like Peter/Claire from Heroes and Xena/Ares from Xena: Warrior Princess. Even though it's never confirmed that Xena and Ares are related - it just makes too much sense for them not to be. Of course the Greek Gods don't care about incest so it makes me wonder if Xena/Ares even counts...
Note that all my stories are AU (Alternate Universe) even ones that are episode tags or what-all. If it wasn't shown/written by the creator it's AU no matter what anyone says. You can't write canon FanFiction it just doesn't happen. You can write canon couple FanFiction, but that doesn't make the story canon. If it isn't shown/written by the creator of said FanDom it can't be canon. It's as simple as that.
I fully endorse the the concept 'Ship and Let 'Ship. Which means you like your 'ships and I'll like mine and let's not fight over it. Like I say Toe-may-toe and you say Ta-ma-toe. So don't flame people just because they don't like your preferred 'ship. Don't say anything if you don't have nothing nice to say also falls in this category. If you don't like the 'ship listed then don't read the story.
