Author has written 1 story for Pride and Prejudice.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by my profile!
I have been a P&P fanatic ever since watching the 1995 BBC version when I was 11 years old.
I started reading fanfiction during the past year, and became inspired to write The Thing about Magnets in the winter of 2013.
One of my main reasons for creating Magnets was focusing on the character development - I wanted to give them motivation. I also wanted to create true 2014 versions of Elizabeth and Darcy and the secondary characters, ones that felt super close to their original personalities while being believable in a modern setting.
I want Magnets to be a great story...a story that you loved reading and you come back to reading again every once in awhile. I can only make that happen if you give me your feedback. I really want to hear from you!
I'm also taking suggestions for what to work on next. If you like my writing style and would like me to write something else when I finish magnets, please give me ideas! Should it be a regency P&P, another modernization of an Austen novel, or something else entirely? I'm open. :)
Below you can find images I have used for inspiration while writing Magnets. Please note, many of these images reflect photo-shopped perfection. I don't believe that these images are exact representations (our characters, in particular, are far from perfect!); instead, these images simply give the appropriate vibe/feeling, and are close enough visually to what/whom they represent. I hope you all enjoy this added layer of participation with the story!
(Obviously, I don't own these pictures. They were found via google searches.)
