Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter, and Earth: Final Conflict.
I am an English born Australian girl.
I'm an eclectic person and I love anything that isn't mainstream. I hate anything on the radio and I detest reality tv. I like all things "otherworldly". I love fantasy and the mystical. I am also a videographer and dabble a tiny bit in photography and am learning to draw. I tend to bite off more than I can chew, but I do all that I can to finish the projects I start. I can't cook, I don't want children, I love my boyfriend, and I want the government to give the Australian people a fair go. I believe in equality and respect and I don't think that being "open-minded" should mean that you also lose your moral standards.
I am a writer. I write for myself and my own enjoyment and if anyone else enjoys my stories and reviews then that's a bonus to me. I love that writing allows me to escape into other worlds for a while. I think it's a brilliant therapy. I love reading for the same reason. My favourite writers are Stephen King, C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkien, Enid Blyton, James Herbert, Arthur C. Clarke, and Cate Tiernan.
"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed" - Ernest Hemingway
"As a writer, I demand the right to write any character in the world that I want to write. I demand the right to be them, I demand the right to think them and I demand the right to tell the truth as I see they are" - Quentin Tarantino
"In dreams we enter a world that's entirely our own" - Albus Dumbledore (Prisoner of Azkaban, movie)
"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?" - Albus Dumbledore (Deathly Hallows)
"It's no good. I've been trying to sleep for the last half-hour, and I can't. Writing here is a sort of drug. It's the only thing I look forward to. This afternoon I read what I wrote... And it seemed vivid. I know it seems vivid because my imagination fills in all the bits another person wouldn't understand. I mean, it's vanity. But it seems a sort of magic... And I just can't live in this present. I would go mad if I did" - John Fowles
If anyone happens to fancy reading any of the stories I already have posted (not that I think anyone actually is), could I ask you NOT to read Fire and Ice? I wrote it when I was a lot younger and it isn't my best work :P
11/4/12 - Planned New Stories
Blood & Honey: A new fandom and a new OC. Here we will enter the Law & Order SVU universe where Munch's world is turned upside down when he falls for his new partner.
Reclamation: A new story coming up for the HP fandom. We meet an OC who has had a terrible past. What will happen when she accidently crosses Voldemort's path?
Untitled: A novella sized story for the HP fandom set during OotP. A group of renegades hoping to threaten Voldemort's growing power are responsible for a series of mysterious deaths. An OC 7th year Hogwarts student is soon to be their next victim. Will Severus Snape be able to find the group in time to save her?
Watch this space because hopefully in the near future I will be able to start posting new content. My university studies are now over so I finally have some time to sit down and plan/start these stories properly. In the mean time if you're an Alan Rickman fan then why don't you check out the awesome work of my good friend Wendy Waddles. You'll be glad you did!
As you can see
Thanks for your interest in my work and all my love to everyone,
Alaina Irielle (formally Taralqua)
