Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter, and Danny Phantom.
Formerly known as playing13dead. How very cheerful of me.
I'm currently an 18 year old, College Student. I live In California.
Lately I've been doing the fanfic author's version of soul searching, you see, I'm trying to get back into writing. I'm on a quest to discover what makes a good fanfiction writer, and I'm relieved to say that I think I'm beginning to put a picture together! I want my stories to be good.
After all, I am a very picky reader, so why shouldn't my own writing be up to the standard that I put on other's stories.
With that in mind, I've been trying to come up with a definite style. Which results in me having started writing countless different fanfictions, and having scrapped almost all of them - some within the first paragraph.
Those few ideas that I haven't completely tossed aside as crap include: An AU Star Wars of epic proportions, that has about half of the first chapter written, but probably will never be finished. A short Psych adventure fic, which has the first chapter nearly finished. I've also completely plotted a huge AU rewrite of Harry Potter, Focusing on young boy named Tom Majors (Who isn't an OC) which I'm terribly excited about! It now has two whole chapters written, but I wont be posting them until all of the first book is finished!
My biggest problems are mostly my poor grammar and spelling, I also live with a smaller than desirable vocabulary (thankfully, I've invested in a thesaurus recently, so, yay).
...and my ability to get distracted from my own writing by all those shiny stories that other people have written.
In the end, though, I do actually prefer reading fanfiction over writing it.
My favorite fandoms to read are Harry Potter, Star Wars, Danny Phantom, Good Omens, and Fullmetal Alchemist. My current obsession is the TV show Psych. But I read anything that piques my interest, really.
I enjoy Angst to absolute death! But I love humor almost as much as I love Angst. Drama is a MUST! And romance (especially slash!) is a nice touch, though I can do without it if I have to.
Action/Adventure is probably my least favorite genre. I find it difficult to read, and I mostly skim action scenes when they pop up in what I'm reading. I'm completely hopeless at writing it as well.
I ship, yes I do.
Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Remus/Tonks. Harry/Cedric is threatening to become my new OTP.
Luke/Mara, Han/Leia, Jacen/Tenel Ka, Jaina/Zekk, Anakin/Padme, Obi-Wan/Siri (I do indeed support book canon!)
Danny/Sam, Tucker/Valerie, and the occasional Clockwork/Jazz.
Crowley/Aziraphale... oh yes!
I ship a huge circle around the Psych charactors, I like Shawn/Juliet, Shawn/Lassiter, Juliet/Lassiter, Shawn/Gus, Juliet/Gus. But the only one I like to read is Shawn/Juliet. Psych is good for general stories, and friendship fics, not so much for romance.
4/29/07 : I've posted a very dark Danny Phantom oneshot entitled "Cold". By far my best work ever posted. Written under the complete influence of the song Famous Last Words, by My Chemical Romance. However, don't judge it by its song, it is most definately not a songfic. Ew.
"The Toad" is being redone, but not rewritten. I feel that the original version was rather charming, and just want to fix the grammar and layout a bit.
"The Not a Diary, Diary" was a complete lack of judgement on my part, and will never see the light of day again. Thank you.
"Who Killed Mr. Potter" has been rewritten, and reposted here; http://www.fanfiction.net/~thesistersfredandgeorge
