Author has written 31 stories for Harry Potter, Avengers, and Star Trek: 2009.
I CHANGED MY AUTHOR NAME, PREVIOUSLY SinfulSanctuary.
QUICK ABOUT ME
I am Martine, also answering the nickname Sinful, or Tim.
For info about updates, you can reach me on tumblr (wickedsingularity).
I am also on:
My own site: imagination[dot]sinfulsanctuary[dot]net.
Reading fandoms: Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Trek, Harry Potter, LOTR, Dragon Age, Tekken, X-men, Crossovers
Writing fandoms: Harry Potter, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Trek
My writing: I like to say I'm anal about grammar and spelling and writing British more than American, at least when it comes to Harry Potter stories. But since English isn't my first language, I do fail with grammar and spelling from time to time. I stick to canon as much as I can. But when it comes to Harry Potter, Jo's weird concept of time, that the Hogwarts school year always starts on Monday September 1st, it annoys the hell out of me. I will change canon things in my own stories if I want to, but changes will be as canon as possible. Meaning I try to incorporate the changes so it seems like it was in canon all along.
CURRENTLY WORKING ON
Lunar Phases: Still working on getting Part 1 ready for expanding a bit and then reposting.
Until Next Time: I'm really struggling with chapter 5, not sure where I want to go to get to... well, where I want to go.
Rogue Shadow: An Avengers story I started late last year. It was supposed to just be a self-indulgent little thing to dabble with when I felt like it. But it has grown into so much more, really taking over my life when I realised I could do NaNoWriMo with it last year. (And I bloody won!) It is still a little self-indulgent, but I'm kind of using it to hopefully work through some demons from my past, so I think I'm allowed :) I did an Daily Writing Prompt thing with it in December, posting it on tumblr. Go check it out there if you want a preview. My blog there is sinfulsanctuary, and there's a link to its masterlist in my info.
Various: Also working on various one-shots, sometimes maybe a drabble.
NEWS / NOTES
August 4th 2016: I'm starting up again. Until Next Time is being updated, some minor edits to the 4 chapters already there, they will be updated fairly quickly. And then I got up until chapter 12 planned for now. I'm not quick, but I'm back. And that's what's important :) And apologies for the links in the summaries below. Gonna attempt to fix them one of these days.
April 20th 2016: Some of you probably know how long I've struggled with inflammations in my neck and right hand. The neck thing comes and goes, but I finally got my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome operated on January 18th and it's healed nicely. Must be nearly 15 years since my hand was this good. Ever since my grandfather died in 2013, I've lost my writing groove. I've also ditched a few friends that were bad for me, and as a result, my new-found happiness and acceptance of my introverted personality have made it hard to find inspiration. I usually type out better stories when I'm hurting a bit, typical of artists.
But I'm working on it. Finding a new rhythm I can make work, and manage to do Lunar Phases, Until Next time and Rogue Shadow all at once. Got some advice from some lovely people on tumblr. (Really, tumblr is your best bet at finding me if you ever need updates on me, or just to get in touch, or whatever. As lemonlime correctly deduced :) )
In conclusion, have patience with me, if you haven't given me up already. I once vowed to never abandon my stories, at least not without giving you a heads up, because I know from personal experience how sucky it is to read something only to wait for updates that never come. So, unless you hear me say anything to the contrary, I will continue my stories.
Myra has always been too curious for her own good. It's about to catch up to her. The Waning Moon Shall Lead us into the Darkest Night.

Until Next Time
The hand on my heart clenched painfully. I stiffened and gritted my teeth. My eyes stung and I couldn't breathe. I was there. I had reached the point where it hurt so bad I didn't know how to live for one more second. War. We do what we can to find comfort and hope.
