Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter, and Star Wars.
WARNING. English is not my first language. My writing is legible, but there are still some minor mistakes. I do not have a Beta Reader and I chose not to because writing fanfics is practice to me. If you're uncomfortable, do not proceed to read. If you do, but wish to correct an obvious mistake, I accept any constructive criticism via PM or in the comment section.
Hello, readers! I'm Mirage and like everyone in this site, I love to read and write fanfiction. I write fanfiction mainly because it helps me develop my writing skills in English - my second language. So, most of the time I'm experimenting. I'm a little bit obsessive when it comes to TV shows, and - well, I may end up writing half of them.
So far, my stories don't involve changing the main plot. Yes, my characters are self-inserted, but I focus more on them being independent beings who think by their own... while heavily influenced by the canon story and characters. Maybe in the future I'll try to write an AU story from something but at the moment, I'm taking baby steps.
April 24th, 2017: Hello readers. I'm crossMIRAGE19, and first of all, thank you for visiting my profile (and possibly reading my stories). Today, two years ago, was my last update in The Barton Saga Book Four: The Masks We Wear, and I'd like to apologize for that. But I am an university student, and my career right now is my main priority (and it doesn't help that I love it) so I'm in a bit of a pause.
This doesn't mean I've stopped writing the Barton Saga. In between projects, I re-read my stories (the first that were published, and then the "rewrites")... and they're laughable. Not in the bad sense - they are laughable because when I started, I didn't know how to write in English but the narrative was legible. Fanfiction to me was a project of sorts: it helped me develop writing skills in my second language, and while everything I wrote was cringe-worthy, I learned. I learned a lot. Before, I couldn't tell the difference between your and you're and didn't know why an apostrophe was needed (and sadly, it showed in my writing); today, I can tell even the smallest mistakes and cry because they change the whole context. I see my own errors and feel happy because, to me, Fanfiction was a long journey in which not only I grew up as a writer and an English-speaker, it also helped me grow into the person I am. It opened my eyes to so many possibilities as well as recognize good constructive criticism. It helped me unleash my imagination and think - to hell with it. By no means I am an excellent writer - I'm no expert in the language and I still have problems while narrating, but my work is aceptable in comparison to other works.
So, I've not stopped writing. If anything, I began to improve and delete what I think wasn't appropriate (and wow, my fifteen and eighteen-year-old selves were really ignorant in so many aspects). But I also don't want to be one of those writers that keep their stories on hiatus for a long time or never return. So I have chosen to rewrite all my stories (again), and finish the fourth book in Anya's journey. Once I do, I will take another pause and begin to write the fifth book; when it's finished, I will continue with Half-Blood Prince but in the meantime, I will update the finished story. I will the same for the sixth and seventh books once I'm through them.
Do not fret. I have progressed a lot more than I would've before. My goal is to start updating again in late May, but I will definitely return to Fanfiction in June of this year.

Tнє Bartoη Saga
It Starts with a Letter - Year One: "Please tell me you don't come from a Mental Institution," the visit of an old man throws an orphan girl's life out of the loop. Anya knew she wasn't alone, but to discover who she is will turn to be the greatest adventure she could ever live. Hogwarts was now her home, but like always, there's going to be a lot of bumps on the road. Completed.
My Worst Enemy is Our Silence - Year Two: "Because he understood," and it was true. As much as I hated to admit it, Tom Riddle was the only friend that could see who I was. Through all the lies he told me, I was sure of one thing: I had really been his first friend. Because liking it or not, we both were the two sides of a coin. Completed.
Secrets of the Innocent - Year Three: "But, what if he was innocent?" Nightmares have been plaguing Anya Barton's dreams - the recent ones meddling with old memories. Meanwhile, mass-murderer Sirius Black has escaped from Azkaban and he's after Harry Potter; as their friendship is put to test, old grudges resurface and tension is running high. Will these four stand it? Completed.
The Masks We Wear - Year Four:"This is where it all begins," Anya Barton wants nothing but help her new charge adapt in Hogwarts and keep up with her classes. But this year the TriWizard Tournament is being held in their school, and it seems she and her friends can't get out of the trouble. And things only begin to complicate when a boy with oddly familiar eyes begins to follow her everywhere. In-Progress.
Just One More Lie - Year Five: COMING SOON.
