Author has written 3 stories for Elder Scroll series, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Harry Potter.
I've always had a deep love of the fantasy genre, as well as RPGs. I'm using fanfiction as a creative outlet, and to explore ideas, themes and characters.
Atoning for Blood: A Skyrim Story
Atoning for Blood is the first fanfiction I ever started to write, after years of putting off giving it a go. It very much wears that on its sleeve, reading it over now, the fic very much seems to me like a story finding its own identity as it progresses. What began in my mind as a personal story following a single original protagonist gradually expanded, as characters I very much considered peripheral began demanding larger swathes of the narrative, and the numerous momentous events rocking Skyrim during this period made themselves apparent. I didn't argue.
Skyrim is a wonderful world to begin write in, as it provides a rich world seeped in lore and history, full of a variety of characters; some of which the game whole-heartedly established, and others which provide a writer ample opportunity to fill out and develop. Though I shake my head at some of the clumsier aspects early on in the story, I continue to be rather proud of how this tale is turning out.
One Girl in all the World:
This one sprang upon me rather suddenly, about fourteen months after starting Atoning for Blood. I felt I had a rather strong idea, stemming from one of the most intriguing what-if's I'd latched onto in a brilliant series. Writing a fic based on such a high quality television series as Buffy however, is a daunting task. Whilst the characters in the original show were so well written that their voices often fall onto the page, the fact that so many of them are so well fleshed out puts a great deal more pressure on staying true to them than my previous story demanded.
Buffy has always been a show about becoming an adult, about growing into the person you need to be to make your way through life. Centring a story around the Buffybot - an innocent being forced into trying to fill a legacy such as that left by Buffy after season 5, seemed appropriately fitting in that sense. It also provided a character who very much had her origins, mannerisms and general nature established, but in many ways was still a blank slate in terms of development.
