Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter.
26 years old. In 2012 I came back from a long LONG bout with Writers Block. First story after that fight is Shotwand Wedding, followed by The After. I then fell into another bout of Writers Block after a devastating accident and then the not devastating birth of my son James in 2015. I haven't written anything in about four years now.
Rose/Scorpius is the most realistic Next Gen HP couple out there. I ship Snarry, and most recently Snamione. I have read most likely everything great in the Snarry ship that has ever been posted and was at my wits end of trying to find new and engaging fics. I just decided to board a new ship-so far, I'm a bit disappointed.
Reviews and reviewers are loved. Anonymous comments have been reinstated.
I love Harry Potter, Star Trek (old 60's version and every series and movie-aside from Enterprise; that show is a joke), Firefly, Parks & Recs, South Park and The Golden Girls. I have a special love for Asian Dramas-Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese...I've watched and loved a lot of them. Megan Lai is one of my favorite Asian actresses as well.
I love playing video games and must say Journey is a spectacular game. I also like playing Street Fighter with my boyfriend and his friends. Fallout New Vegas is amazing. Fallout 4 is great fun too. Recently started up in the Sims3, and forgot how much I loved that game.
I love food-cooking it, eating it, watching it be made, reading about it.
I still love anime-Hayao Miyazaki's films are gorgeous-Ponyo is one of my favorites from him, followed by My Neighbor Tottoro, and Howls Moving Castle. Also liked School Days, Golden Boy, Inuyasha, Cowboy Bebop, AzuMangaDaiOh, Ghost in the Shell (SAC), Witch Hunter Robin, Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon-those last two shows were my shit back in the day! However, I don't go out of my way to watch much of it anymore. I much prefer real live dramas.
Once upon a time I was BasketCase14-that profile is still up, but I wrote all those when I was very young. A lot of those pairings, genres and fandoms I wrote for I no longer support. I'm not sure how to take that page down, but if it's at all possible-and if ff.net staff happens to read this-CAN YOU PLEASE KEEP IT UP? Most of those stories I no longer have available to me, and while I could just add them to this profile, I'd like to keep my amateur writing skills from my younger days separate from the stories I'm now writing.
If anyone would like to view my old works, feel free. But they weren't really anything special-I was 14 at the time.
This is so funny. Almost a whole year later, I'm contemplating coming back and re-writing/finishing Within Motion.
Afterimage was my first ever het fanfiction in the world of Harry Potter. I have only ever written slash and I have only ever read slash for the past ten years, primarily Snarry. And so, when I embarked upon this idea I had that nextGenLily and GhostSeverus get together...it was different for me. This year, I finally accepted that I would never find any new good Snarry to read. I've read ALL the classics, several times over. I've read the not-so-classics as well, several times over. I've read the old series, I've read newer series. I've read non-canon compliant, and I've read canon-compliant. With all this in mind I decided to board a new ship within the HP world, something different, but not so far gone from my Snarry that I felt entirely out of my element. I decided to try het. Severus/Hermione, to be exact. To say I was disappointed in the majority of the stories I found would be an understatement. And in reading those, I realised that the closest to canonSnape I ever found in fanfiction would most certainly be in the Snarry ship. How sad.
This all brings me to this though: I am trying to write something original. But my problem is I can't get started at all. I open Word and sit there staring at a blank screen. I know what I want to do, but I can never find the way to start it. So I thought, why not go back and re-read Afterimage, and maybe attempt a re-write of both Afterimage and Within Motion? Maybe even finish Within Motion?
I'm going to try, because I am always apt to fall into the hole of writers block. It's infuriating. I can't just write about anything; I have to feel invested in it.
The way to read the series is as follows:
The Before (optional, as I wrote Shotwand Wedding first)
Four Times Rose Sent Her Children to Hogwarts (And The One Time She Didn't)
A Vacation to Remember
Only Four Times and A Vacation to Remember are multi-chaptered. I honestly think that giving you guys to much information about those between years of The Before, Shotwand Wedding and The After takes away from the relationship that Rose and Scorpius have. This is also why I'm writing A Vacation to Remember-so you guys can get some more insight into their love/hate relationship.
I don't want to sound rude, or an inconsiderate author, but for the love of god-please stop asking me to continue stories that I have already said no to. There's a reason I did it in follow ups and not chaptered. Trust me. The story would suck otherwise.
Now. Please enjoy my series-which I have yet to title!
Someone recently reviewed my story, The Before, and commented on the fact that I used something from the movies, and not the books. They said I wasn't a true fan. I would just like to clarify a couple things:
I read all the Harry Potter books before I EVER saw the movies. I waited in line to get my Half Blood Prince book-3 hours, btw. I'm the one people go to when they ask about Harry Potter information. I was pissed when they didn't put Peeves in the movies. Especially the POA one, because it was PEEVES who saw Sirius Black and told Dumbledore-not the Fat Lady herself. I was also one of the few who was pissed when they showed Hermiones dress-it was pink, when it was supposed to be blue!
Let me tell you all something else-I chose the scene that Rose describes BECAUSE it was so traumatizing. And I just kept thinking-what if Rose accidentally stumbled upon a bowl of memories, memories she shouldn't have seen? What if she got to witness her mother being tortured, saw how helpless her own father was? The death of Dobby? The death of her uncle, Fred?
I also chose this because to me, a witch or wizard choosing to harm another person by HAND is far more terrifying than choosing the distant, unattached act of casting a curse or spell on a person. To go out of the way by using a KNIFE? That's far more realistic for Bellatrix than casting the Cruciatus repeatedly-she's done that before and put them in a hospital. Bellatrix doesn't seem like the type of person to torture the same way twice.
One more thing-if I have to go through reading another rude and arrogant comment posted on any of my stories, I'm going to turn anonymous reviews OFF. I'm choosing to keep them on because I know there are way more people out there that would enjoy reading and reviewing my stories anonymously. So PLEASE-do not ruin it for the other fans who actually respect my work.
As for the people who were kind and actually want me to continue-thank you. Your support and encouragement has been wonderful. I will be writing more, don't worry!
