Author has written 7 stories for Crash Bandicoot, Bratz, Spyro the Dragon, Web Shows, and Moomins.
I'm an angsty adolescent girl, that loves to watch cartoons, play video games, listen to music and write fanfiction. As a Dream Weaver, it is my honour to welcome you to my Realm of Fantasy! (...or at least, you know, my detailed Profile page)
Have you ever felt like no one around you shares your passion about things you love, or that they even find them childish or outlandish? If yes, then you probably know how I feel! Don't get me wrong here, I've got many interests, (from doll-collecting to voice-acting). It's just that I have a tendency towards more... unusual stuff.
An Inspirational Flashback:
I played A New Beginning and The Eternal Night and couldn't wait for the final part of the trilogy to come out! When I learnt that both Spyro and Cynder would be playable in it, I got even more excited and I was sure that the upcoming TLOS title would be the best game ever! In fact, during my online research for Spyro stuff, I discovered fanfiction. It was very intriguing, how people that actually liked the same thing as me, wrote their own stories about it. I was never a book-lover, yet I enjoyed Spyro stories and that was the first time I trully wanted to read something after-school.
Sadly, Dawn of the Dragon turned out to be wrong in so many ways. From the numerous plot holes, to the total lack of female characters and dragons. (seriously, why have a Dragon City that has no dragons at all? Why don't you call it the Mole City, or the Dragon City Where The Only Dragons Around Are Statues instead? Sure, it wouldn't sound good, but it would make slightly more sense!) Not to mention the OOCness. I really wanted to like this game and I did like a few parts of it (like the beautifully designed levels and awesome music), but the whole thing was a disappointment to me and I believe the series deserved a much better climax! And disappointment didn't stop there...
In 2009, a Spyro movie was about to come out. It was going to feature Elijah Wood, Gary Oldman and all our well-known actors. Its' title was The Legend of Spyro 3D and it would be loosely based on ANB. The plot summary was very promising and the fact that Spyro would hit the big screen was thrilling. But then, the movie got cancelled for no good reason and two years later, Activision presented to us something called Skylanders. (um, I prefer not to talk about this...) I still want to watch this movie!
I've been reading fanfiction since 2008. Having trouble fitting in and being mistreated by other people of my age, for being "different", I went through dark times and reading fanfiction became my comfort of some sort. Spyro the Dragon is my ultimate favorite fandom and the character I adore the most is Cynder. Yet I'm a fan of Krome Cynder (the one from ANB and TEN), not the sassy Mary-Sue she was turned into, in DotD. My favorite fanfic by far, is Cynder 100 (along with 101. Mourn) by Razzek Mecotl. The author has captured the original personality and feel of the young black dragoness, as well as her relationships with Spyro, Gaul and even Malefor himself, in a trully incomparable way. It's artists like her (and others as well), that have inspired me to join in and "unleash my imagination"! CYNDERFAN4EVER!

A Storyteller's POV:
I write for pleasure, but I try my best, therefore feedback is highly appreciated. I do not intend to leave any of my stories incomplete, yet I might take a while to update them, since I am a perfectionist and that makes me an easy prey for writer's block. However, If I do discontinue a project, I will make it clear as soon as possible and I won't let you fruitlessly waiting for an update. It's a pity, when good stories are left "In Progress" forever.
Crazy!: an unexpected parody, inspired by Disney's Moana. A special song performed by the one and only Ripper Roo. Look out Crash! This straightjacket-wearing kangaroo isn't joking! Especially when it comes to singing about himself, his love for explosions and his desire for revenge...
Honest Fanfic: The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon: What better way to express my opinion on DotD, than writing a satirical one-shot, in the form of Honest Trailers? This is how we got 'Honest Fanfic'!
I'm The One!: another Crash Bandicoot song parody, inspired by the Cheetah Girls' song by the same name.
Currently Working On:

With help from the ancient spirit of Aku Aku, Crash will do whatever it takes to save his love, restore peace to the Wumpa Islands and stop his evil creator, Dr. Neo Cortex, from taking over the world. A story inspired by childhood memories and what I imagined Crash Bandicoot 1 would be like, as an animated movie. First of three fanfics to cover Naughty Dog's original trilogy.
Kaycee-cool: a Bratz fanfic, inspired by the Recess episode "Randal's Reform".
