A Bit About Me:
Hi, I'm Rowena Zahnrei! I've been making up stories since before I could write, and this is my current ln-Progress Story List. Below, you'll find my much longer collection of finished stories! Reviews are always welcome — I'd love to know what you think of my writings!!! :)
I've been asked why I write so much fanfiction. Answer: I'm on the autistic spectrum, and writing stories about my fictional role models, especially Nightcrawler and Data, has always been my way of figuring out people, and better understanding the social worlds around me. Also, writing is a really challenging skill and I figure this is good practice. :)
Like my stories? Want to learn more about the original stories, graphic novels and comics I'm working on when I'm not updating my fanfics? I have a website you can check out! www . rowenazahnrei . com You can also check out my crochet creations on Etsy and Pinterest: RowenaZahnreiCrafts (Links don't seem to work here, but I inserted them anyway. :) )
My graphic novel trilogy The Adventures of Nicki and Ricky: Baffling Birds! - Comics for Young Naturalists (featured in July’s Kids and YA Content Creators Spotlight on Crowdfundr) reached its funding goal less than 12 hours after launching! All three of my Nicki and Ricky nature mysteries are now available as e-books, paperbacks, and even a special three-in-one Hardcover edition!
My original story, Earth Schools Are Easy, won 2nd Prize in the 2023 Kid's Choice Kidlit Writing Contest! Check it out on my website! :D
One of my original comics (and recipes!) has been accepted for publication in the anthology Comics From the Kitchen! Look for it in Summer 2023! :D
The Kids Comics Pitchfest Showcase is now live, and features my graphic novel proposal for Harpo's Voice! as well as lots of other fascinating projects. Take a look when you have some time! Honk, honk! :D
Retro Fanfic Retrospective made a podcast about my X-Men story "The Day The Earth Stood Back"! It's their Episode 110, on PodBean. They also made a podcast about my story "Brainy's Glasses" : Episode 48. Check 'em out! :D

10) DuckTales (Huey,Dewey,Louie,Donald Duck,Scrooge McDuck): The Curse of Krampus!
11) Blackadder (Blackadder,Baldrick): Forcing the Hand of Fate (this story's not so much 'in-progress' as 'under reconstruction.' I wrote the whole story in high school but the file's so badly corrupted some bits are unreadable, and the last few chapters are missing. I like the story, so I'll probably try rewriting those missing chapters someday, but it'll take a while...)
I write when my other obligations let me — and, often, even when they don't. I'm also prone to migraines, which is frustrating beyond all belief, so when I get those any hope of writing anything can be written off. Awful!
I may not always update quickly and my inspirational obsessions with various shows/books tend to come in cycles, but I do make a point of finishing all my stories, no matter how long it takes, even--in most cases--years. If you ever feel I'm taking ridiculously long to update a story, please feel free to send me a nudge, either as a review or a PM. After all, it's always more fun to write when you know someone out there is reading. I hope you enjoy my stuff, and I deeply appreciate all your reviews! Thank you! :)
