Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter, Fairy Tales, Dragonlance, and Dungeons and Dragons.
I used to say I'm "just zis guy, you know?" but no one ever got the joke.
I like to read about things that I'll never experience for myself, particularly magic, time travel, and childhood - as a result I seem to have gravitated to the harry-potter-goes-back-in-time genre, which I'm quite happy with. With respect to that, my favorite character is Gabrielle, I ship Harry/Ginny or Harry/Hermione, but think ron/hermione was ridiculously unbelievable, and like dumbledore/snape just for the lulz (or should that be evulz? ;D ). If you know a story you think I might like, feel free to recommend it to me.
One thing that does bug me though, is how in a lot of these fanfics, everyone is gay. Ok, I get it, you want all the characters to be in relationships without having to introduce any OCs. But... no. Just no. I have no problem with homosexuality; what I have a problem with, is the numbers. In real life, about 10% of people are gay. Harry Potter has a main cast of about 15, give or take. That means that, on average, there should be only one or two gay characters. JK has already said that Dumbledore is gay; that gives you one more to play with, two if you push it (Sirius/Lupin is believable). I'm just glad I never saw any Hermione/Ginny fics - that would really take the proverbial cake!
I've never written anything before, mostly because the books I read were all so good, it seemed pointless to try and match them. But, after reading a number of stories on fanfiction, and seeing just how, well, crap, they can be, I've decided I'm in good company here! No matter how bad my writing may be, I'm confident that there is at least one person doing worse, which I actually find strangely comforting. I've also seen some writers whose first stories are pretty poor, but whose later ones are incredible. Gives me hope I'm not wasting my time.
Stories I want to write:
Mary Sue Goes to Hogwarts
Mary Sue, the bastard love-child of Clark Kent and Tony Stark (don't ask), goes to Hogwarts! Ridiculous, over-the-top awesomeness, showcasing everything terrible about overpowered heroes, and taking it to 11! Hopefully this will come out awesome, but I suspect it's more likely I'll over do it and all the jokes will fall flat. Worth a try though.
Middle, naddle, oddle, patch; Voldemort has met his match...
A story filled with ridiculous randomness, humorous homilies, and (also awesomely), amazing alliteration! :p Hijinks ensue. Not to be taken seriously.
Home is where the heart is, but Love is in the Stars
On assignment from the SGC, Daniel Jackson is investigating the Sunnydale crater for signs of alien involvement, and discovers a strange amulet which he returns to base with to study. Meanwhile, not realizing that Willow's spell is temporary and she and Faith are once more the only Slayers, Buffy decides to abandon the ruins of her old life, and start again somewhere new, staying with her estranged aunt... Samantha Carter. Spuffy.
The Rising Fire shall Sear A Thousand Thrones
Earth isn't the only place with prophecies. Turns out, Hell has them too. And when the boy-who-lived becomes the man-who-died, he finds out that not even the master of death can escape his fate...
And Death Shall Have No Dominion
Sequel to Rising Fire. When Harry Potter, unquestioned ruler of Hell itself, decides that one world is not enough, he invades earth - only to discover that time flows different in the underworld, and redemption is more than just a word. Will Harry conquer this world as well as the one beneath? Or will he succumb to the blandishments of the light, and repent? In Hell, there is no love, and friends are for the weak. On earth, things are a little bit different.
Unnamed dune/warhammer 40k crossover
Focussing on the Navigators - because the Dune method of FTL is actually surprisingly similar to warhammer; what if they crossed paths? BTW: I'll probably never get around to writing this, so... if you do, send me the link!
Active Story notes:
Raistlin Majere and the Philosophers Stone
Harry Potter is replaced by Raistlin Majere from the Dragonlance saga. If you haven't read dragonlance, don't worry about it; just think of it as smart!dark!harry with some references you won't get (ie. remember that time when I...). All the other characters are the same as they were in canon, and the story itself will follow canon pretty closely to begin with, and then start splitting off as time goes by - the main point of divergence is Chapter 5, although the pace really picks up around chapter 11. Expect that by Harry's third year, it will be completely of the map.
This story is not dead! I promise, I will continue writing it. Admittedly, there seems to be a few months between chapters... but the next chapter is coming! Eventually. One day.
The Character Sheet Of Destiny
I actually have no idea where this is going, but don't expect frequent updates - turns out writing something funny is hard!
Mortal Coil, Unwound
Poe-inspired awesomeness. This one is really written more because I enjoy writing it, than because I expect anyone to enjoy reading it; I suspect people will not share my taste for wordplay. The story itself will be a semi-serious drama/adventure, but I'm hoping my style of writing can push it more towards humor.
This is an interesting story, particularly for being so short. I don't want to give away the "twist" to anyone who hasn't read it, but... Let's just say I am hoping it will fuel some heated debates. There are a couple of ways you could interpret it, so please consider it as both a social and literary critique, as well as just a story.
Rise of the Tyrant Lord
Harry becomes the overmind of a Tyranid swarm. The wizards - light and dark - will attempt to destroy him as soon as the swarm is discovered, forcing harry to defend himself from the people he is trying to save. Meanwhile, does merging with a horde of intergalactic monstrosities make you any less human? Yes, yes it does. Harry is torn between the comforting embrace of the swarm, and his human relationships - in the end, which will win? Spoiler: There will be a sequel, which it is entirely possible that I will write in parallel... we shall see.
