Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter.
A little bit about me.
I am Rebecca. I am full time student, living on my own and working as a waitress. Writing is also a big part of my life.
I created this account many years ago, and have been writing since about 2004; I was about fourteen. I started by reading a story here and there between book releases. At the time, Order of the Phoenix had recently been released. Very soon after beginning to read, a relative lack of material I was interested in prompted me to write. For a while, I wrote the typical original character fic. By fifteen, I had removed the story from the site and started Antiquity's Corollary.
It took a few tries to get up and running. I had been running a Harry Potter forum for some time, so I found betas quickly. My initial posting of the first fifteen chapters was deleted after several months work and many reviews due to an unfortunate incident involving a Terms of Service violation. (I had posted an author's note as a chapter to get word out about something while I waited to update; I was totally unaware of internet etiquette, I suppose!) However, I took the opportunity to revise a bit, based on some of the great concrit I'd received, and I posted all the chapters back up. I continued updating from there, and eventually it grew to the novel sized fiction you see today. I loved writing this fic.
Over the years, my spurts of writing have become sporadic. I began working, was getting to the end of high school and the beginning of college, had more freedom, and my updates grew farther and farther apart. My regular updating schedule became more unpredictable due to my real life.
Every once in awhile, and with decreasing frequency as time has passed, a few reviews find their way into my inbox. I am always happy to see them; they remind me of a very happy time, when these were my greatest responsibilities. Every so often, I read a review that moves me to write a scene, and then I'm off. When that happens, I email my old internet friends and chat with them about my ideas. I love those times.
It is August of 2012 as I write this. I am now finishing my Bachelor of the Arts in English, with a minor in biology and a secondary education teaching certification. Bouts of creativity and stretches of free time allow me to write when inspiration strikes. Currently, I am working towards the completion of the story.
About my Stories:
Antiquity's Corollary: This is a seven year labor of love, so far. I have come very far with this story. It currently stands at 49 chapters, and I see an end in sight. I imagine it will end up around 60 chapters. If it takes a few longer than that, so be it. I have posted five chapters, each around 9,000 words, within the past year, so I feel I've got a pretty good streak going on. I hold this fic close to my heart because it deals with Severus as Harry's Father, which though I don't read often, I really love. I feel that a lot of people have lost interest over time, so if any of you are out there reading, please let me know so I know I'm not playing to an empty audience.
All Manners of Necessity: Just too much fun to write. I am trying to finish my epic fic, though, so I've sort of placed it on the back burner. I want to finish it; I only planned on it being about 20-30 chapters tops, so I probably will at some point.
Join my yahoo group and chat with me :) I love the company; it can get lonely, with just me and my computer!
I hope that all who read will continue to the end. I hope that when you get there, you will let me know :)
Thank you for everyone who continues to express interest in my writing. For those of you who have waited, your patience is so appreciated. For those of you who have just found it, I hope you enjoy the story.
