Author has written 5 stories for Angel, Highlander, and Alias.
Hi there, my name is Jasmin, I live in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. I'm a Process Engineer and I enjoy playing with Photoshop and writing FanFiction from time to time. You can find my art onand my fanfiction here, of course.
And with a bit of luck, my next story will actually have an ending... Which I have come to think of as a "yes, there WILL be an ending, if those damn characters would just find a way to stop f*ing with me". They tend to stubbornly do what they want, instead of what I want them to do it seems.
This is a no-pairings-without-reason zone. Meaning I don't do boy-meets-girl stories that are written just so you can have someone drooling over your favourite character(s), possibly involving sex scenes that neither make sense for the story nor of themselves (a plea here: if you have never even had sex, don't write about it - people who have had sex before can usually tell you're "winging it"). Personally, I think those characters we (or at least I) like to drool over are hot/sexy/whatever without having to be told they are ;P Actually, it's part of what I think makes someone appealing in the first place: not needing groupies / a mindless girlfriend /whoever to tell them how great they are or to rescue and dote on -- it weakens the main character and the groupie both. I like all my characters to be somewhat strong and independant (well, the ones I want to be likable at least). For example, have you watched "The Beauty and the Beast", the series? Her running after him like a puppy needing to be rescued on an almost weekly basis and alienating all her own friends in the process was cringe-worthy to say the least.
This is also a slash-free zone. Not because I don't like gay people, but because you would need a lot of constructing to make a believable slash pairing that I usually just fail to see the point of (again, not much for the pairings-without-reason stuff). That is also why I often shy away when I see a slash warning in the description of a fanfic - thankfully, there are exceptions there (see my fave stories list).
