Author has written 11 stories for Vampire Diaries, Originals, and Harry Potter.
Hi there! Thanks to all who devote some of their valuable time to read my stories. I am relatively new to this whole fanfiction thing, so I'm pretty excited about my beginning fanfic career. All constructive criticism and reviews are greatly appreciated; I'm always looking to improve my writing.
Just a couple of tidbits about myself: I am 24 and live waaay up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina (where it is bitterly cold in the winter - not for the faint of heart). I love to be outdoors in the summer, hiking, biking, camping, horseback riding, even just sitting...as long as I'm in the sun, I'm happy. I have the worst Teva tanline of all time. In the winter I go into hibernation mode and gain 20 pounds. Or thirty...maybe...
I love love LOVE giraffes. I'd think that would be obvious. I have 38 giraffes - including a wicker one as tall as I am named Edwin that sits next to my fireplace - in my house. I mean, who doesn't like giraffes? Who of you can resist that goofy, adorable face?
I've traveled the world: Costa Rica, France, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Canada, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts and Nevis (and other various islands in the Caribbean), the Virgin Islands, and most of the United States. I'm blessed to have been to all of these places - it has opened windows to other worlds that you would never guess existed.
I have a terrible southern accent but I talk like a nerd. I am a walking National Geographic and can tell you all about the most random things: sharks, Papua New Guinea, vague Amazonian tribes, corn farming in Kansas, extinct species, the box-jellyfish, pirates and ninjas...I may be a total dweeb, but you'll always walk away from me with some new piece of information. (Did you know that the almond is part of the peach family? And that Donald Duck's middle name is Fauntleroy? Now you do.)
Southeastern Africa is my favorite place on the planet - I traveled there several years ago, and my heart never left. I am currently working on getting back over there. I intend to go into the mission field. I am at my best when I am serving people. I like to think that the single action of a single person can change a life somewhere, even if it seems inconsequential.
I am the daughter of two presbyterian ministers. Enough said.
I am also an adrenaline junkie. A lot of things on my bucket list have already been crossed off, but I have many more just waiting to be fulfilled! My dad is not too thrilled about my base-jumping plans in Norway. I'm soooo psyched. :D
I am a total extrovert and love to party. I seek people out. Wallflowers and those that are socially impaired don't stand a chance. I will find you.
I can be bribed with any kind of doughnut.
I love to read and write (obviously). I love semicolons - and tend to overuse them in my stories. Y'all will just have to get over it. My favorite books are Exodus by Leon Uris and All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, and my favorite authors are Pat Conroy, Tana French, Jodi Picoult, James Rollins and Nora Roberts (yes, I enjoy a cheesy romance novel every now and then. Anyone who says they don't is a liar).
I love Harry Potter, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood and the Originals; most of my stories will fall into these categories, unless someone suggests something creative for another book or TV show or I get a funny urge to write outside of my comfort zone.
I hate Twilight. I think Stephanie Meyer is a fairly unremarkable writer to begin with, and then when the movies came out it just got ten times worse... (The magic carpet in Aladdin has more facial expressions than Kristen Stewart.)
Don't even talk to me about that 50 Shades of Grey crap. I'm telling you, the movie is great comedic relief. My best friend and I went together to see it in theaters - best 10 bucks I've spent in a while. We were cracking up. The books are good for a laugh as well - just fully expect that you might lose some brain cells along the way.
I have an embarrassing celebrity crush on Daniel Gillies. He is simply delicious. My other celebrity crushes are Benedict Cumberbatch, Nathanial Buzolic (of course), Jensen Ackles, Alexander Skarsgard, Ryan Reynolds, Chris Pine and Danny Pino. Mark Harmon is pretty hot too, even if he is like sixty now. But whatever. And Robert Redford and Harrison Ford used to be on point. Just sayin'.
There will be absolutely no Stelena, Bill/Sookie or Hermione/Ron in my stories. Don't even mention it. It's too predictable.
I try to keep the characters I use from getting too OOC. Please tell me if I cross a line somewhere and need to edit some things. That said, I do like to dive into all possible facets of my characters, including sides that may not be stressed in the show/book.
There will almost always be smut. I can't help myself; my dirty mind just sort of takes over. I apologize in advance for any offense you might take at the material in my stories, but I will always post a warning in my summaries.
Well, that's enough about me - sit back and enjoy! (And review, if you feel so inclined...just a friendly suggestion...)
