Hey - Emeraldstargazer here.
Twenty-something private sector drone by day; avid fanfic reader and author by night. Proud owner of long-suffering husband, a muse most fond of coming up with ideas at 11pm and a horde of rabbid plot bunnies sent to torment my every waking moment.
I'm into computer games, horse riding, cooking, swimming and having a nice cup of tea and a sit down. I also love to read - contemporary and classic stuff - and my favourite book is 'The Lord of the Rings'.
Writing wise, it tends to be computer games based although I've also done a Lord of the Rings based fic. I'm really into RPGs - especially Final Fantasy 7, 8 and 10 and am currently obsessed with all things 'Dragon Age: Origins' and 'Dragon Age II' as well.

I finally got around to doing some spring cleaning on FF.net and now some of my old stories have been deleted. Apologies if anybody enjoyed them but I finally realised that I just wasn't ever going to be able to finish them - I've changed too much since I started them to make a decent job of it and I couldn't stand putting out mediocre work just for the sake of finishing the fics.
Which brings me to where I am now. With the skeletons booted out of the closet (metaphorically, of course) I can finally concentrate on some new ideas. I'm more of a reader than a writer these days - owing to work and general life commitments more than anything else - however recently the plot bunnies have been nibbling again so, we'll see how that goes..!
Finished Fic - 'The Gift of a Gentle Heart': my own personal take on the 'Houses of Healing' incident in Lord of the Rings as it was always one of my favourite bits of the book and I would have liked to see more depth in the build up of Faramir and Eowyn's relationship. As it was, she always seemed to me to have a very quick change of heart from Aragorn to Faramir so I'm trying to explore what lay behind that change.
Finished One-Shots - 3 one-shots that make up my 'Shots in the Dark' collection - they focus upon particular moments in time - one's FF8, the other two are FF10 and are called 'Stay Tonight' , 'All of Me' and 'Thunder and Lightning'
If anyone ever has any questions about my fics or wants any help with their own, I'm always happy to help so just e-mail me. I'll always try to make my reply informative and constructive.
