Author has written 3 stories for Rise of the Guardians.
I am Lightning Frost but my friends call me Nightshade.
My name is Samantha Duncan but I prefer to go by Sam.
I'm fifteen strangely enough.
I am also non-binary and for those of you who are unsure of what that is here you go straight from the Gender Wiki: Non-Binary Genders are gender identities that don't fit within the accepted binary of male and female. People can feel they are both, neither, or some mixture thereof. It might be easier to view gender as a 1-dimensional spectrum with male on one end, female on the other, and androgyne in the middle- but the reality is that gender is more complex, and 3-dimensional models with axes for male, female, and how strongly you feel attached to that gender identity have been suggested.
If my gender orientation is somewhat of a problem for you I would appreciate it if you kept it to yourself. I understand that people may not agree with my orientation but I don't think it's necessary to harass people about it. Please just keep any negative comments to yourself and carry on your way. This site is for fanfiction not for gender disputes.

I only want to do one thing with my stories and that is: make them memorable and make them different.
I am into dark things thing, you can tell that in my stories, I mostly do one shots but Smashing Sandcastles is so far the exception. I do enjoy writing that story and I think my works on here are my best I've ever had. I've never written that well as I was growing up but I actually committed myself to these and I think they're magical.
I'm writing for Rise of the Guardians because I love that movie so much and every aspect of it amazes me. I mean like, how can it not be a classic? Think of the relating characters, the lessons, and the journey from nobody to somebody. We can learn and relate to that and it's an enchanting movie, I think it should have earned more respect and more of a fanbase than it did and does. That movie is pure magic, I mean for example, my second favorite character Sandman, his sand is so wonderous that if they just made a movie for him I would watch it the first showing hands down. For my third favorite character Pitch, I think in the trailers they should have credited him and maybe if they make a sequel give him more a backstory. I only like him because what's a hero without a villain but they didn't give a reason why he was that way and if the movie was longer to do that I think it would have been better. We don't even know the characters to well, the only one we know is Jack, I would like to know more about the others and the only way to do that is the read the books but moviewise the backstories weren't so great. Enough of the cons, that movie was spectactular and the whole reason I started an account here at Fanfiction.
Before I started writing Fanfiction I was writing my own little stories. I had never heard of Fanfiction until one of my 'friends' told me about it and this website. Of course I went on and checked it out and read some for myself. I fell in love with it when I started reading Sickness by Janazza (thank you, you got me started on forming my own stories) and I made an account. If you're in need of random and great stories then go to little miss BANANNA HEAD, she's amazingly creative and her writing is full of energy and emotion that you don't really see now-a-days and if you're looking for Rise of the Guardians crossovers, she's got them. Along with a few characters that are geniusly thought up and brought to life. She's great and I'd recommend her, Janazza, vividregulator, Sorida,and many more that I do not recall.
My first story, North's Totally Terrible Christmas , was my first one-shot I ever made and my first fanfic. My pawpaw had told me over Christmas that one year growing up his brother had super glued all the stockings shut. That got me thinking, Jack's a prankster, would he super glue all the stockings? Of course he would, it would be hilarious. I however had been reading the Night Before Christmas and I got stuck in rhyming mode and the story wasn't as great as I was going for.
My second one-shot was The Dark Truth and I came up with that after watching Alyssa Lies the first time. That video made me cry so hard and I have this friend who she almost died when she was younger and she's mistreated at home. I wanted to dedicate this to her but I didn't put the dedication in there because I wanted to dedicate it to everyone who is bullied or hurt. My little story is in there too. Basically it was this girl Alyssa who she's been abused since her parents died and she meets Jack Frost and they talk a bit before her foster parents kill her. She was going to run away but they got to her first. That was a tough thing to write but I don't want anyone who's bullied to give up, it will get better if you keep pushing on, you have to fight it, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and if it helps to help others then do that, find a way to keep moving because the end isn't it.
My third one-shot was If I Die Young and I thought of that when the song came on the radio and it was frosted outside. I thought Jack died young, could this be his song? So I did a song-fic and the scene where Jack died saving his sister on the ice. That was a hard one to write too because I wanted it not be another Jack dies in the ice fic but what he was thinking as he was dying. I got the exact quotes from Rise of the Guardians Movie Novelization (the same book that I used to quote the movie in the theater) and I think that made you remember the scene better. It was quite sad but I think that song made it a little better or a little more depressing since he didn't get to have full life and what's done is done and he can't do more until he's a spirit.
My fourth story is Smashing Sandcastles. Many of you are familiar with that one. It was originally going to be a one shot but it had way too many ideas to be a one shot so I turned it into a fic. I enjoy writing that one because alot of the fics I read are Jack torture stories or Jack being tortured until the Guardians came for him. This fic is all about Sandy being tortured and I bet you're wondering, how can you torture sand? Well there's two ways I'm sure of and I know they'll work well for traps. This fic is now complete with 12 chapters and the epilogue, give it a try, I'm sure you'll like it.
My fifth one-shot is Not Alone. It takes place after If I Die Young where Jack wakes up on the ice. I basically fit the song lyrics Not Alone by Red to a few events in Jack's life during the movie only in my own style. I don't really have much to say about this one except give it a shot, you might like it or find a new song you like.
My sixth one-shot is Cold as Stone. It takes place after If I Die Young from his sister's point of view and how she copes with losing Jack. The idea had been eating at me for a while and I finally typed it out. I found it emotional to write and I was having problems choosing a song for it. I was stuck between For You by Keith Urban or Illusion by VNV. For You would have been good because it was about sacrifice for the ones you love and how you'd do it without regret or a second glance. Illusion would have been good because it was saying forget the world because I want you to stay the same and not to leave because you may be hurt but I'm sorry and I want you with me forever. I found them all emotional so it was hard to choose.
My seventh story My Brother's Keeper and it's a Jack Frost/ Jack's Sister/ Pitch fic. I have the summary right here:On the anniversary of Jack Frost's sisters death Jack visits the graveyard like he has for the past two years. However this time is an exception. Thanks to the Man in the Moon Jack is able to see his sisters ghost. There's a catch to this miracle, she doesn't remember anything. When Pitch catches wind of her return it can only spell trouble for the Overland children.Are you afraid? If you want to know more, just read Smashing Sandcastles to get a feel of how my writing is, then at the Epilogue will be a little info on it. I want you to read Smashing Sandcastles first so you can be aware of the twists and feelings and all that I put into my stories. I want to give my readers something they'll never forget.
I was informed that I had broken one of the guidelines on fanfiction and for that I've deleted my three song-fics. Since I do not want the site to face any legal trouble or have my account suspended I decided to delete them. I'm not allowed to place song lyrics in my stories even with the credit towards the artist due to copyright and plagiarism. I have not committed such intentionally and therefore to conclude I will not post anymore song-fics. I apologize if these were one of your favorite stories but I do not want to cause any problems so I have complied. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
I discontinued My Brother's Keeper. Don't ask why. I have my reasons. I apologize for the inconvenience.

All my words come from one important place that everyone has no matter how much they say they don't care, and that place is the heart. For without feelings then the world would be a poorly done black and white portrait.

I got this from Serena Nightingale's Profile:
Sandman come to me tonight
Comfort me 'till morning light
As darkness falls and shadows loom
I bid you well come to my room
Rest your bones beside my bed
Lay your hands upon my head
Cast your spell of slumber deep
And stay beside me as I sleep
If i should die before I wake
I grant to you my soul to take
This is from my friend Darkblade County's Profile that she got from someone else's:
I'm going to tell a little story about Friendship:
One day a little girl was stabbed in the back by her first friend. She had trusted this girl with every secret, every story, everything and then that girl started being a jerk to her and hurt her feelings and broke her. The little girl was mortified, her first taste at friendship and she was wounded like this. The little girl had been bullied for two years prior to this and one had threatened to kill her. This 'friend' had told her new friend every secret, every story, and how weak and pathetic the little broken girl was. The little girl would go home where that week her parents were having an argument and were threatening to get a divorce. They were going to go through with it. The little girl would cradle her younger sister and they cry themselves to sleep every night. After the parents cooled down they were still happily married however the little girl was always sad and lonely. She had no one to trust anymore. Eventually the little girl met a boy who was just like her, they were the best of friends but then he moved and they lost contact except by a computer game the girl loved to play. The little girl thought of him as her bestest friend in the entire world. When she entered sixth grade after she moved she started thinking about him all the time and writing about what she was thinking about him. The girl didn't want to make anymore friends so she wouldn't get her heart broken again. She still had scars. The girl carried on to seventh grade and realized that since the end of sixth grade-where she didn't talk to anyone at school(they didn't talk to her) for sixth months- she had depression. The girl had all this confusion and sadness and anger and it was all because she got bullied and her 'friend' stabbed her in the back and she didn't know how she felt about the boy. A few months later the girl found a site called Fan Fiction. She fell in love with the stories on that sight and then her and another girl started talking on there about their stories and then they got to know each other. The girls found out the y were the same and the little girl came out of depression because she knew she wasn't alone. Funny how this website could hold the most important friendships in it. She didn't find an escape, she found someone to stand with her through everything and she could vent and not be judged negatively because everyone else here had a story to tell. The little girl's friend was going through Hell basically and the little girl and another friend she made on Fan Fiction began to try and help the other girl who they didn't know. These girls formed a triangular bond that held them together. One was the soul of creativity, one held the emotions and one was there to be a part of something special. They all had a bond that held them together. The little girl was no longer little and she was never alone, because she had to get her heart broken a few times to find the special others to mend it.
Copy and paste if you can relate, cried while reading, or have a best friend on Fan Fiction that you can really relate to.
You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody
Life is either daring adventure or nothing. Abundant of success or failures. Full of happiness or misery. Filled with love or emptiness. We all have a choice
I know you are doubting yourself at the moment. I know you feel unsure and scared. I wish there was a way to make you understand that you will get through this. I know you will. I believe in you.
No matter how many times I break down, there is always a little piece of me that says NO, you're not done yet, GET BACK UP!
Often it's the deepest pain which empowers you to grow into your highest self.
Do not allow negative people to turn you into one of them.
When I look back on my life, I see pain, mistakes and heartache. When I look in the mirror, I see strength, learned lessons, and pride in myself.
Miracles start to happen when you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears.
When something bad happens you have three choices, you can either let it define you, let it destroy you or let it strengthen you.
All my words come from one important place that everyone has no matter how much they say they don't care, and that place is the heart. For without feelings then the world would be a poorly done black and white portrait. Think of a flat wall with black paint splattered on it and then a poorly done cover job, that would be life.-Me
