Author has written 18 stories for Harry Potter, and Degrassi.
Once upon a time a long time ago, I wrote a Harry Potter romantic comedy with a happy, sappy ending. Then, I discovered a Canadian TV show, called Degrassi, which really began to call to that developing angsty side of me. All of the sudden, all the stories I wrote were not about happy endings, fairy tales, and romantic fluff. Suddenly, my stories were about trying to keep the characters in character and talking about emotions and sorrow and regret and sadness, and not about a happy, fluffy ending. My muse became less about fairy tales and romanticism, and more about reality, and I liked it. I began to discover the joys of writing about realistic things including all the bad things in life, instead of just the good. After all, life is about a lot more than happy, sappy endings, and I have discovered I would rather write about more than just that.
If you are interested in my stories, here's my works (I'm only listing Degrassi ones, because my Harry Potter stuff was a long time ago!)
Redemption -- The act or process of changing for the better, freeing from what distresses or harms, helping to overcome something detrimental, atoning for, offsetting the bad effect of, making worthwhile, making good, getting or winning back, freeing from the consequences of sin, or rescueing. Redemption has so many different meanings. What happens when a well intentioned guidance counselor brings together Jimmy, Spinner, Jay, Emma, and Toby to try to deal with what happened last year? Will each of the students find their own redemption? Chapter 13 posted -- Strange Connections
Whimper -- Angst. Most relationships at Degrassi ended in a bang -- theirs ended in a whimper.
Set Her Free -- definitely a different story for me. It's a Jay/Alex story, and in it, I assume that Jay actually has a heart and feels badly for what he did to Alex. It may seem a little out-of-character -- I don't know. It was different, and difficult, and very tough for me to write.
Pink: Pure angst -- meant to make you think -- a girl's thoughts at one of those worst moments a 16 year old girl could have. Based on the many opinions at DB forums(i'm dfg1991 there) I read that said Liberty couldn't be pregnant because she is too smart and too responsible.
Empty: By popular demand, I did a follow-up to the story Pink. It all started with a pink line on a white stick -- this is how the story ends.
Never Look Back -- One of those cliche fictions -- not my normal stuff. It's a part angsty closure and part romantic fluffiness Sean/Emma/Jay love triangle.
Letting Go: It's Emma's special day, and someone is having trouble letting go. It's pretty fluffy, and not my normal angsty style (although I do have a fluffy Harry Potter romantic comedy that I wrote before I became all angsty drama). It's not a Emma and anybody story -- it's actually about Emma and Snake's father-daughter relationship.
I also have a series of season 4 reflections I am working on (one-shots)
No Regrets (Jay) -- I try to give you a look at everyone's favorite villians thoughts -- does he feel guilt for what's he's done?
Works in progress: Redemption, Chapter 14 -- Chapter yet to be titled-- will be from Toby's point of veiw. Chapter 13 had us with Emma, who had ran out of the session -- so now we will go back to what is happening in the session while Emma's chapter was occuring.
I'm currently also working on Jimmy's and Spinner's reflections for the one-shot series-- will come eventually. I also have works in progress called Save the Best For Last (song fic -- undecided coupling -- will be posted here without lyrics, check EGA at Degrassi-boards for song fic version), Complicated -- Craig/Emma, and a yet to be named Sean/Emma -- so, stay tuned, one of them may pop up soon!
Thank you everyone for feedback on my stories! I write because I enjoy writing, but I still appreciate feedback, especially constructive criticism. idontknowanything (Shari) P.S. feel free to e-mail me with any questions/comments if you would like!
