Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter, and CSI.
Where is she? The best place to find me is over at my Livejournal, which I update several times a week with random musings, and occasionally icons.
C2: The Literary Sanctuary is for all fics I've come across and enjoyed (and convenient to glean what my current obsessions are), and a second account, Benediction, for overflow of R-rated fics I follow (including some of my unconventional favorites) and classic off-site recs.
Favorites: I'm just a reader, reviewer and recommender who, on rare occasions, moonlights as a passable author. While you are here, check out my Favorites or my C2 for fics here at FFN that I follow and love. Some stories and authors listed are sentimental favorites (that first piqued my interest in a certain genre), but many I consider as examples of fanfiction--a few even fiction, period--at its very best.
Fandom Preferences: I try not to restrict myself to any one pairing for any fandom. While I tend to read slash, I love excellent gen and het. As for pairings, I read too many to list. If it's well-written, it's probably worth reading. I hate to limit myself, and I would miss out on quality fiction if I did. As for fandoms, I follow Star Trek, Dexter, Burn Notice, Supernatural, Southland, Chuck, Psych, ROME, The Unusuals, CSI, NCIS, Kings, Stargate: Atlantis & SG-1, Harry Potter, Leverage, Bandom (PATD, FOB, MCR), DC Comics (Batman & Superman, mostly), Marvel Comics, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Fringe, The Middleman, Law & Order, Prison Break, Pushing Daisies, Transformers, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, High School Musical, Lie to Me, Castle, Royal Pains, Merlin, Glee, Disney, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Watchmen, classic film and musicals. Back burner fandoms include Band of Brothers, Generation Kill, Numb3rs, House, Hustle, Studio 60, Heroes, Firefly/Serenity, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, The Magnificent Seven, Life on Mars, Without a Trace, BtVS/AtS, Star Wars, RENT, X-Men, X:WP/HtLJ (Joxer/Ares!), The Fast & the Furious, Phantom of the Opera, Hellsing, OUaTiM, Discworld, InuYasha, Master & Commander, Labyrinth, L.A. Confidential, The Matrix, The West Wing, Smallville, and anything else I come across that tickles my fancy.
Four Must Reads: (from the enchanting, to the intelligent and powerful, to the...ahem...nautical)
The two 'what if's that I wish were 'what happened':
~Stealing Harry by Copperbadge ('samvimes' here), an AU masterpiece about family & friendship, life & love, good & evil, with a dash of Sirius/Remus, mentor-Snape, and the most adorable 8-year-old Harry you will ever meet. The subtle beauty of this enchanting epic is simply indescribable, and with the author's plans to cover all of Harry's years at Hogwarts, there is much to look forward to. Sequel Laocoon's Children Years 1 & 2 also there, or download Year 1 at Megaupload.
~Robin's Unbroken Universe: Consider this--what if Sirius had remained the Potters' Secret Keeper? Promises Unbroken, an AU (non-slash) that rivals the books in its magnificence, is the story of the Marauders and their unbreakable friendship. Engrossing and real, I can't praise it enough. The sequel is Promises Remembered, and rounding out the trilogy is Promises Defended.
The best Sparrington (i.e., Sparrow/Norrington):
~The Matter of Rules (Parts 1, 2, 3 (a & b), 4 and spin-off ) by L.M. Griffin (aka Wren): Told in the Norrington first person, this is one of the most romantic fanfics I've ever read. I think it best captures the magic and humor of the film as well as the subtle character nuances of Commodore Norrington, Jack Sparrow, Will & Elizabeth while maintaining the historical aspects of the period. Whether they're fighting or loving, the air between Norrington and Sparrow simply sizzles. And best of all, Wren's Norrington is so amazingly developed that you can easily understand how this man earned the rank of Commodore (especially so in Part 2: Acts of Piracy). Even if you didn't think you were a Norrington fan, after reading this, you will be.
Synergy at its best:
~Music of the Spheres by Mithen brings the movieverses of Superman Returns and Batman Begins together in a seamless and beautiful way. This series also includes one of my favorite premises--characters who know each other on two different levels (alter egos, pen pals, etc.), only they don't realize it--and I find it both refreshing and sweet that billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne falls head-over-heels in love with mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent.
Exercises in Boredom: (I much prefer reading fanfiction to writing, so they're nothing profound)
Change in Seasons: A set of Harry/Voldemort drabbles, unconsciously inspired by the work of Passo. My thanks to all those who have reviewed, as I was surprised and overjoyed to receive such kind words.
To Love the Unloved: A quiet Ron/Draco I wrote for The Silver Snitch's Contest #4.
Chili Con Christmas: An idea I couldn't get out of my head on a late Christmas eve.
