Author has written 18 stories for Harry Potter, Titanic, Star Wars, Psych, Big Bang Theory, Hunger Games, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and Sherlock.

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." --Ernest T Hemingway
My real name is [this material has been censored in the case of an online stalker] but you can all call me Freddie and I genuinely hope that you're having a great day.
I am fourteen years old; I laugh a lot; I love to read, write, doodle, and listen to rock-n-roll music (although the variety on my iPod is so spread out, I've got stuff from 1580 to 2013, Disney songs to hard rock, and lots of 80's synth pop). My favorite musical artists are The Goo Goo Dolls, Alan Menken, Hans Zimmer, Five Cent Wing, and Mumford & Sons.
According to Pottermore, I'm a Gryffindor! (triumphant laugh of hur hur hur!) I'm with Harry! Obviously, that automatically makes me one of the good guys. Go Lions!
I like to draw and you can find my work on www.deviantart.com as DropYourSword (yes, that's a Princess Bride reference.) There is lots of fanart posted there and even illustrations from my own fanfic stories so check em out if you ever want to see how I'm really visualizing something that I've read or written.
I'm a horrible singer, although I don't let that stop me from doing so in public whenever I feel motivated. I'm in Latin III, learning how to speak a dead language. Make of that what you will. I'm a total foodie but I stink at sports, so if you see a girl out walking her two (positively bat-poo crazy) dogs for hours on end in order to stay under 500 pounds, it is most likely me. I am constantly getting myself hurt, though not on purpose. I just have this amazing superpower to hit my toes, knees, elbows, head, hands, whatnot on any surface in the room. Alas, this ablitly is both a curse and a...well, no, pretty much just a curse: I'm bruised and scared all over. The school guidance counselor had me in her office all the time trying to figure out my "problems" till she witnessed me clunking and stumbling down the hallway. Ain't been in there since.
I will go trick-or-treating in my homemade costume every year until I die. I love to jump around in my bedroom and wave my arms a lot (read: dance) with the music up way loud. I'm obsessed with reading through Bulwer-Lytton Contest entries, which is a competition to see who can write the first sentence to the hypothetical worst novel in the world--basically a satire of a lot of the junk on fanfiction. I'm one of the ones who starts replaying a funny movie in her head when she gets bored and then snorts out loud just when it gets quiet every time she "hears" a joke. 9 times out of 10, I'll do this for several minutes before noticing that everyone is staring at me.
I have a ridiculous laugh, an even dumber-looking smile, and still don't understand the art of flirting. (Did everyone else go to lessons or something?) but my chances of getting a boyfriend are pretty much nil anyway so I stopped caring a long time ago. Even if I did, (yes this is me trying to cleverly segway into listing my fictional crushes) the poor guy would probably be held to the same standard as Fred Weasley, Leo Valdez, James Potter, Ferris Bueller, Dipper Pines, Han Solo, (Tom Hiddleston's) Loki, or The Oxford Comma and I do recognize that that's not entirely fair. (If you don't know who The Oxford comma is, get off of fanfiction. Now. Right now. Just, just...I can't even talk to you...Okay, fine. You can stay on fanfiction, but go look up The Oxford Comma for my sake because it is distinguished, sophistaced, beautiful, functionally clarifying, sacred to literature as a rule, and perfectly necessary.)
I am a Christian and very proud of my faith. I know that no matter how bad I screw up, the Lord will inexorably love me and accept me even when I don't know why I'm worth loving; because that is how great He is and worthy of my praise. My favorite book is the Bible (seriously, it is; that's not just a generic answer) but I don't consider it in the same category as the other "fandoms" mentioned below. My favorite verse is Romans 8:18-"For I consider that the challenges of this present time are not worth comparing to the glory that will be revealed to us in heaven." Keep hope. It gets unimaginably better.
That being said, anyone and everyone is invited to PM me if they ever want to talk. If you wanna get something off your chest, wanna get a second opinion, wanna yell at someone (or just type in really big letters) I can take it, I will encourage, and I will help you to the best of my ability. I'm not perfect, but I will try as perfectly hard as possible for you. Just remember: life could be worse. Be glad you're not at rock-bottom. And it can also get better. Don't give up. We're together on this. *gives the friendliest of embraces*
In case you haven't guessed from my username: I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan (It's "FredNeverDied" because apparently "Duh,MyBoyfriendIsStillAliveAndWell,GoshDARNItJKRowling!" wouldn't fit. Silly FanFiction.) Other than Harry Potter, I love the epics: The Odyssey, the Iliad, and the like; Percy Jackson; Inception; A Seperate Peace; The Frighteners, Super 8; Sherlock; Shakespeare; nearly every Disney or Disney/Pixar movie ever made ever (because I refuse to grow up) especially The Lion King, Treasure Planet, the Toy Stories, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Atlantis, and Monsters Inc. While we're at it, there's also psych; Monty Python; the Princess Bride, (book and movie, indicated thusly because they're so different and still so separately awesome;) 30 Rock; Peter and the Starcatchers; the Squire's Tales; the old Muppet shows; The Loony Tunes Show; and anything by Cornelia Funke, Twain, Hemingway, or Grisham. Whew. We made it.
I get really annoyed when people apologize for their writing. Either your stand by it or you don't, but don't grovel in the description over whether or not your piece is worth reading. First of all, no one will read something that the author is embarrassed about. Secondly, if you really don't think it's good, don't assault us with it. At least, not yet. And if you do think it's good, (or at least hope so) then say so and be confident. We writers are in the business of hope and though out there be trolls, here be hearts of gold. You lose nothing by being confident. And thirdly, all that being said, I want to apologize for a couple of my stories. :P I wrote (or started) these when I was very young and very new to fanfiction. They are fluffy, ugly, and laughably pathetic. Since then I have learned my lesson (or at least hope so, please do me a favor and flame mercilessly if you see foul-ups.) But the writings that are so bad it's cute are: The Scoundrel's Story, Hufflepoem, Who Said Anything About Settling, and Happy Idiots. I won't take them down becaue I like showing progress and because some people favorited them (note entirely sure why) but just so we're clear, I disown them.
I wish I could write more fanfics than I do, however there is this thing called school and, being the mega-dork I am, I have to make straight A's. Therefore, it's kinda hard to update any more than once a month. Please review my stories because I want to know where I stand! (In a perfect world, I'm going to do this professionally one day...or become the President...Or use my hurting-myself-constantly-and-accidentally superpower to save the world from evil every night. I haven't really decided yet.)
Happy fanficing everybody, *flashes the Nerdfighters gang symbol!* and DFTBA!
ATTENTION! ATTENTION! ATTENTION! Do we all remember the movie The Black Cauldron from Disney? Terrifying, beautiful music and gruesome bad guy, the feared Horn King; adorable piggy, Hen Wen, and comical creature, Gurgi; wonderful, complex, strong-willed hero Taran and most importantly, the lovely, clever, sweet-but-stubborn Princess Eilonwy? Well of course not. Because Disney locked them all away in the closet of Never-To-Be-Spoken-Of-Again because the film ended up being a flop. However, it's an absolutely fantastic movie, they just made it too scary for the intended audience (first one to ever have a PG rating). Well here's the thing, Eilonwy-a princess by birthright, unlike Mulan, Tiana, or Belle (even though I love them)-never made it into the Disney Princess franchise, though she has more backbone and ingenuity than lots of the masculine heroes in Disney movies. Copy this into your profile and add your name to the banner below if you believe that Eilonwy should be awarded her hard-earned, rightful place among the much-lauded Disney Princesses.
And don't get me started on Kida from Atlantis. Just because the girl isn't as thin and dainty as the others, she's not allowed her title. (Because, honestly, that's looking like the only reason she's being skimped.) Kida saved her entire kingdom! And kicked some serious mercenary butt in the process. Copy this into you profile and add your name to the banner below if you think Kida, Princess/Queen of Atlantis and savior of her city, should join the lofty heights of the Disney Princesses.
Wanted: Sue, Mary. I do solemnly swear to withstand, discourage, and even in some cases, destroy all influences, characteristics, or embodiments of the wanted felon, one Mary Sue, for the charges of being unbearably shallow; attracting characters already engaged in deep, meaningful, canon relationships; inserting Author's Notes in the middle of a story; chronically using terrible grammar; focusing only on clothing apparel and superficial attractiveness; always abusing dialogue tags and vocative adverbs; never having a real plot; and for being "effortlessly perfect" without ever showing a single scrap of original initiative, creativity, curiosity, cleverness, determination, athletic ability, humor, compassion, or deep character. She was last seen ruining a perfectly good fandom as she featured in yet ANOTHER fanfic, though she has been known to crop up even in professional pieces such as the Twilight Saga and Fifty Shades of Grey. She has impersonated and framed the brilliant young women: Annabeth Chase, Hermione Granger, Katniss Everdeen, and Lily Potter (among many others) for being slutty, ditzy, ill-humored, and shallow. Mary Sue goes by many aliases, do not be fooled if she is not listed as Sue, Mary (typical giveaways are names like Arianna, double to triple-names, anything with an apostrophe in the middle (e.g Dementia Dark'ness Way, Merlin forbid).) If you come across a Mary Sue; instantly and mercilessly flame the author for their legitimate and grievous insult to literature; PM all the positive reviewers of the Mary Sue story to experience the fandom again because perhaps they missed everything; and don't read another word of the Sue!fic. Smite the Sues!

OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

--The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends—if they’re okay, then it’s you.--
“If at first you don’t succeed, destroy all evidence you tried.”
“Boys are like trees - they take 50 years to grow up.”
"Ideas not coupled with action never become any bigger than the brains cells they occupied." my fortune cookie the other day
"If you find you don’t like a person, walk a mile in their shoes. Then, you’ll have stolen their shoes and you’re a mile away from them."
"Dealing with pain is a lot like dealing with a bad rainstorm. As loud and scary as it is at the moment, it will stop eventually. The trick is to not grieve over what was washed away, but discover the wonders of skipping through puddles and learning how to love getting wet." --Ellie Baker
"Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language." -Lev Grossman
"Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough." --Ernest Hemingway
