Author has written 7 stories for Power Rangers, and Harry Potter.
I'm Zack, I'm 26, happily married to my amazing wife Heather, and I'm so incredibly thankful for the opportunity to write and get my creative juices flowing.
universes and themes that I enjoy in fanfiction
The rangers grown-up: I don't know why, but I love the idea of when the rangers are older and are put in setting where they actually grow as characters. You never got that with the TV Show since it was for kids.
Tommy/Kim: When Kim dumped Tommy, it wrecked everything I knew (when I was 10 that is). They were THE couple (in my mind), so I always like different ways of how the break-up happened, and how they got together.
Exploring Jason's character: While Tommy and Kim are a little easier to write for, Jason is probably my favorite character to explore. He doesn't show much weakness, which is why his break-down in Island of Illusion Part 2 is so good... he finally shows his greatest fear, letting down his team.
Epic Adult re-versionings: A great example is JRaine's Dawn of Primacy. The thing is a work of art, in terms of the detail, the story telling, and development of characters. It's wonderful.
Well-Written Romance: The bar was set with Cheryl Roberts' "All I Want for Christmas." Hands down the best fic I've ever read, and that was over 7 years ago. I love it when someone can write a GREAT romance. And believe it or not, I think the best ones often have nothing to do with explicit sexual content, but instead well written plot and back story.
Cross-Overs: I love seeing the Rangers in other universes, which is what I want to primarily write about as well
Things I don't like in Fanfiction
Stories that revolve around sex: I don't find them entertaining, and I think it's a cheap way to write characters, and an even cheaper way to show characters who love each other.
Short Chapters: I don't know why, but I've set a rule that I won't read stories with chapters under 1,000 words. They just are frustrating to read for me, because you can't really get much into a story without a little more substance. So I normally skip them.
"The Ghost of Me"
A Deathly Hallows re-versioning, which includes Tommy, Kim, Jason, Kat, Adam, and Tanya. I called it the Ghost of Me for two reasons: 1. I like using song titles (Daughtry sings it), 2. One of the central themes of the story is facing yourself, in a way. At some point, many of the characters have to face the reality that they themselves are the biggest hindrance to winning the war against Voldemort, unless they move past themselves.
"By Your Side"
A re-write of Power Rangers Zeo. What if Jason became the Gold Ranger before Kimberly's infamous letter. Prequel to "The Ghost of Me"
"How He Loves Us"
A short scene between Kim and Kat after the events of "The Ghost of Me," and how they can begin to heal from the emotional weight they both suffer from.
Works in Progress
"Whispers in the Dark"
A/N: I just moved this to the Power Rangers/Harry Potter X-Over section
Sequel to "the Ghost of Me," which will be a crossover of Power Rangers, HP, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, set both in Angel Grove and Sunnydale.
"Mighty to Save"
The last book of the "Ghost of Me" Universe. Tommy, Kim, Jason, and Harry Potter will be some of the main characters, but I can't reveal more than that. You'll have to read the others to figure out who else will be in it!
Inspiration and Last Words
Lastly (and most importantly), I desire to honor my Lord and Savior, Jesus, with everything I do. My hope is I can do that through writing fanfiction aside from other things. If you have any questions about Jesus, what He means to me, or what He has all ready done for us, please feel free to PM me.
Thanks and God Bless!
