Introductions...my name's Beth aka BatteredChild, and I'm from Sydney, Australia. I haven't written anything in a long while, I think about it all the time but between work and family I haven't been able to write in years. Maybe one day I will get to again and I will get to finish the fics I started. As things stand anything not yet complete is on hold.
I am currently working on two fics, though I don't get much of a chance to update either of them.
Different Circumstances (Beauty and the Beast) is my priority when I write at the moment. There's only two or so chapters left before it ends and they should be out soon, I just gotta make time to write.
A Bit of Earth (Secret Garden) should be updated soon, I've come to a bit of trouble in working out my plot and I am quite wary each time I start a chapter mostly because of the yorkshire. Chapter 6 up! I know it's been forever hides
My favourite pairings are:
Erik/Christine- Phantom of the Opera
Jack/Sally- The Nightmare Before Christmas
Belle/Rumplestiltskin - Once Upon A Time
Favourite Movies/TV Shows
Phantom of the Opera
Beauty and the Beast
The Neverending Story
The Secret Garden
Harry Potter (all)
Pride and Prejudice
Pirates of the Caribbean (1&2)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Xena: Warrior Princess
Once Upon A Time
What I Read
Basically I'll read anything that's well written and is about any of the movies/shows listed above. I do go through phases where I read one particular type of fic unless others are being updated. The main ones I read are
Phantom of the Opera: Anything E/C cause I hate Raoul...stupid fop!
Harry Potter: I have been sucked into H/D slash, as long as it's tasteful anyway and actually has a plot. Also a fan of Severitus and Snape mentoring Harry fics.
Daria: Anything interesting and either no pairing or Daria/Trent...I just never liked Tom
Xena: Anything that's well written. Subtext/maintext whatever doesn't bother me as long as it's tactfully done.
Buffy: I like Spuffy fics cause I just love that pairing. Don't like any fic with a Buffy/Angel or Buffy/Riley pairing...it's just wrong lol.
Labyrinth: J/S of course and I like Sarah being tormented throughout a fic, and I know I'm not alone...maybe it's just cause she was mean to Jareth but I dunno, it's just fun to be mean to Sarah. And I'll stop about that now. Anyway like I said, J/S in the Underground with something interesting or original happening with them.
