Author has written 8 stories for Avengers, and Lord of the Rings.
My name is Jess. Like all of you, I love reading fanfiction and dabble in many different fandoms. I currently only write for two, Avengers and Lord of the Rings.
RANT: I have a love/hate relationship with Plot Bunnies (yes, I use capital letters). They either give me brilliant ideas that I read over later and go 'wow, I wrote that? It's genius!' Or they go on strike at an important bit of the story and I'm stuck on a scene for months. Grrrrrrrr...
My favourite avenger is Clint Barton/Hawkeye, and I adore Legolas from LOTR, though I am only familiar with his character from the movies. I apparently have a thing for underused characters who are archers but whatever. They are both cool!
I also adore bromance like a hobbit adores second breakfast, and that will come through in my writing because characters (especially males) having close non-sexual relationships is something I love. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside every time.
I am currently studying archaeology and history at University, which leaves me very little time for writing fanfiction. The sequel to Fractured Trust will come eventually, but my study comes first right now.
I also post my Avengers stories on AO3 under the same username, AustralianRanger012. The stories are posted from the same draft onto both sites so there shouldn't be any differences in content, something that I have found can happen with cross-posting.
I have created my own Avengers-centric Universe centring on the character of Hawkeye. It is called the Choices and Second Chances Universe and the first story in it is called Shades of Red and Black. I have heaps more stories set in this universe planned and many are in various stages of writing and development but I am a subject to the whims of Plot Bunnies so I can't give any idea of when I'll be posting anything. I will also always finish a story before I start posting it so the Plot Bunnies holidays will not interfere with any story of mine that you are following in this Universe.
(The key to understanding my writings, Complete means the story is finished and posted in it's entity on this site, In progress means I'm currently in the process of writing it, Being edited means it's written but being beta-ed and reviewed, Coming soon means I've planned the story out and want to write it but haven't started yet. With those coming soon and in progress there is a possibility of summary and titles changing slightly before they are posted.)
Choices and Second Chances Universe Stories
(stories on this list are in chronological order, or as close as I could put them to chronological order)
Through Blood and Fire
Before they were Agent Phil Coulson and Director Nick Fury of SHIELD they were Private Phil Coulson and Colonel Marcus Nicholas Fury. This isn't the story of death defying feat of superheroes, it's the story of two ordinary men doing extraordinary things and forming a lifelong bond of trust in the process.
Nick Fury and Phil Coulson origin story
Pre-Shades of Red and Black
Those Nine Months
Do you wonder what happened to Clint between the time he left the army and the time we meet him again in chapter 2 of Shades of Red and Black? What happened during that time to change him from being a cheeky snart-mouthed sniper into an almost emotionless master assassin? This series of short stories and one shots will aim to answer those questions and more besides as we delve into the mystery of the events surrounding those missing nine months.
Clint Barton was dead, his life story from beginning to end stained red with blood. Hawkeye the assassin was a name feared by all who heard it. The man behind the name was slowly drowning in darkness, until one person decided to change that by giving him two things he’d never had before; a choice, and a chance to live.*CSC Universe*

My first Lord of the Rings story, The Foundling Prince, was a spontaneous idea that I indulged at the time, not thinking it would last. Over twenty chapters spread across two separate stories and over one hundred and fifty reviews later, it is still going strong and I have no intentions of stopping writing in that universe anytime soon. So long as you guys want more, and the Plot Bunnies are in a good mood, I will keep writing. It is due to the feedback of my readers that the main story got past the first two chapters and the outtakes even exist. Links to both stories are below.
AU, follows movie canon events. Many years before the One Ring made its presence known in Middle Earth, a golden-blond haired, bright-blue eyed elfling was found abandoned in the Forests of Mirkwood by an Elvenking grieving the recent deaths of his wife and son. This is the story of that elfling, Legolas Thranduilion, adopted son of King Thranduil, told through one and two-shots
A dumping ground for abandoned ideas, unfinished scenarios, deleted scenes, extra scenes and chapters that simply did not fit into the flow of my main story, The Foundling Prince. Many chapters may not make sense if you haven't read it, and there will also be spoilers for that story.
In progress indefinitely.
Tales from Mirkwood series
In this Alternate Lord of the Ring's Universe told through one-shots, Thranduil has eight children, three daughters-in-law, three grandchildren, and has been married twice. The logistics are explained as we go through. These stories will be funny, happy, sad, heart-wrenching, heard-warming, and everything in between. Ratings will vary, but nothing will be above a T.
The order they are listed in here is the chronological order, not the order in which they were written or posted. Right now there is only one story posted; but I will update this list as I upload new stories, so watch this space!
What do you get when you mix an elfling with a sound knowledge of chemistry, his mischievous little sister, a prank war with his cousin, and an older brother getting caught in the cross-fire? Read on to find out! Drabble set in an Alternate LOTR Universe. One-shot. (Thranduil, Belegon, Legolas, Lothwen)
Lastly, I want to say a big thank you to all the amazing authors out there for giving me the inspiration to take the plunge into the pool of writing fanfiction in the first place!
