Author has written 12 stories for Harry Potter, Merlin, Avengers, Star Trek: 2009, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Hi!

I'm just your average fangirl, belonging to too many fandoms and with too many OTPs for it too be considered healthy...

Age: 17

Location: England. It's probably raining. As someone who lives on top of a hill, it won't be long until I have my own personal moat.

Fandoms: Harry Potter (always), Starkid (because they're totally awesome!), Doctor Who (including Torchwood and Sarah Jane Adventures), Merlin, Percy Jackson, Narnia, Lord of the Rings (and the Hobbit), Avengers and other assorted superheroes, Hunger Games, Sherlock and more recently Disney and especially Star Trek, which I now count as one of my main fandoms. As in my life has been ruined by all things Star Trek. And Jim Kirk. Lizzie Bennet Diaries anyone? The Guild? There's probably some I've forgotten right now. I did say there was too many to be healthy...

As a general rule, I write mainly for Harry Potter and Star Trek 2009, and have quite a few Avengers fics (Iron Man 3 really caught my imagination!) though as you can see I've dabbled in a few others.

When I was about five, I wrote in a gimmicky notebook I wanted to be a writer. When all of the other children abandoned their silly childhood dreams and fantasies and got actual ambitions and life goals, I still dreamed of being a writer, nothing had changed, except that I now knew the correct term was author. And now, as I have to seriously start thinking about possible careers, I debate and flit between a few Plan B's I can study for, get degrees for and tell my teachers when they ask. But Plan A was, is and will always be, to write. I can't imagine doing anything else. So here I am, writing.

Thanks for visiting my profile, I hope you like what I've written!

DFTBA and live long and prosper :-)

If you have any queries about how I portray characters/plots or anything, or if you have any requests for one-shots, please feel free to message me!

I'm trying to start a History blog with a few friends so hopefully I'll get that off the ground soon; watch this space! thehistoryowls.tumblr.com

Works

The Lily and The Stag: A Harry Potter fanfiction following the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans from the start of 7th year. In progress. Needs re-writing.

After the War: A New Age: Another Harry Potter fanfiction! Telling my version of the untold 19 years, Romione centric eventually. In progress.

Breathe: Merlin one-shot, Gwen centric after the finale.

Should've Been There and My Battle: Avengers one-shots after the events of Iron Man 3.

Fallen: Star Trek Into Darkness one-shot, McCoy centric.

Kobayashi Maru: Humorous Star Trek one-shot focusing on the legacy of Kirk's unique take on the simulation...

The End Is Where We Start From: AVENGERS REQUEST for Olympus97: Set after IM3, kind of like a mini Avengers 2. The Avengers are captured and their only hope for salvation is the Arc-Reactor Tony Stark conveniently threw in the sea... Completed.

The Bridge Crew: Star Trek Into Darkness post-movie one-shot, focusing on the senior bridge crew.

Dead Man's Lips: Pirates of the Caribbean one-shot focusing on Elizabeth after the events of Dead Man's Chest.

Enough: Oh look, more Star Trek! Post STID one-shot. Can follow on 'The Bridge Crew' or can stand alone. Kirk wakes up in a hospital bed surrounded by his crew.

If I ever forget to put this on an upload, I don't own anything I write about.

Update 27/05/15: I'm still not the best at regular updates, After the War is NOT abandoned (neither is The Lily and The Stag, but it needs a complete re-write so I won't be posting anything new on it until I can do that). There are many reasons, to name a few, A Levels (just a few more weeks now and then I'm on a gap year so should have plenty of time to write!) and as a result of the stress those caused, migraines, and anxiety/depression. Yeah, it's been a fun two years...

My thanks for your endless patience, love to you all, DFTBA
