Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.
So its 2010 and this is the first time I've updated my profile in...well at least 4 years. Let me give you a quick rundown of where my life is at right now:
21 year old female
volunteer + school + work
I used to go by "pai" or "strmbringr" depending on what I was writing. The majority of the fiction I have put up on ff.net was written in my late middle school to early high school years. Roleplaying and then real life too most of my free time for writing away, though I still spent plenty of time reading fanfiction. I'm not married & I don't have kids. Other than a few select pairings I generally prefer reading slash/yaoi fanfiction.
I intend to revamp everything I've written and perhaps put up some things that I never had a chance for as well as some things I'm considering writing over the summer. Don't expect fast updates on stories old or new. At the moment I'm a bit overwhelmed with life and though writing might be an outlet, I'm not sure if its one I want to share with others yet.
A few random facts about me that you don't need to know: I love reading online or off; wolves are my favorite animal; green & purple are my favorite colors; I love shoes, stuffed animals & traveling; I love tattoos and have several large ones of my own; I have a ShihTzu puppy that I adore; I often go to anime-cons and comicons; I grew up a "trekkie"; and I'm a family person.

Policies on Writing
I'll update as often as I can. Reviews encourage me (by making me smile & feel guilty), but they are not a guarantee. I have a very hectic life that is constantly plagued by ridiculous things happening where I have to save the day.
Every review will be read and appreciated. Even though I may not have the time to respond to them, I treasure it any time someone takes the time to even drop a single line. I know that I rarely do, and if I do its because I've read something special.
"Flamers" vs. Constructive Criticism:
If you would like to leave me a flame, by all means do. Personally I think it is a waste your own time to type out an angry message. If you don't like what you're reading, you are free to stop reading it. I am not Terry Goodkind or Anne Rice or Stephen King. I am not published and will make mistakes. I will also write things that some people will love and some people will detest. I will try to give you as much warning as possible when I focus on certain themes people might find offense. However, if there is a reason you do not like what I am writing, I would love to hear about it through constructive criticism. I take that to heart. I left my own message of that sort for another author a month ago, mentioning that I thought overall her concept was very good, but was she intending to have her characters quite so OOC? That was my personal opinion, but she appreciated it and made an effort to work on the area I thought was slightly lacking. I do not mean to sound arrogant, I am by no means an editor or the authority on anything related to fanfiction. However, I will take the same approach. If you see a glaring error, feel free to point it out to me. If you have a suggestion, I want to hear it just as much as I would like to hear "I like your story!" There is always room for improvement and I depend on my readers to give me a new perspective on what I have written.
Homosexuality / Slash / Yaoi Fanfiction:
I read this type of fiction and I will most likely be writing it as well. Everyone is entitled to their opinion & my personal opinion is in favor of homosexual relationships and marriages. If you disagree with me, that is fine, but ff.net is no place to hold an argument about different values or life choices. However, I will give a warning when I choose to write a slash pairing. If you see this warning, please to not be upset or surprised to see homosexual relationships in the fanfiction. If you read it, you have chosen to. I have not forced you to. I expect you to respect my right to my own opinions as I will respect yours by not "rubbing it in your face". I, myself, am an extreme romantic and I believe in soulmates. Or at least something along those lines. In any case, I'm not holding myself back with gender though I typically prefer men.
A Last Note
Please feel free to recommend good fanfiction (or books!) to me if you think I would like them. I try to keep my favorites list updated with only very well done fanfiction that is well written with an excellent plotline. occasionally I accidentally add one that isn't so good or I have it on from when my tastes were more varied. It happens. Still, I would recommend you check out my list if you are looking for excellent reads. They are all much better than my own fiction.
Good Luck to any aspiring writers & thank y'all for stopping by my page. Hopefully I'll be back up and running soon for the first time in years.
