As of 7/18/2013, this profile name has been changed to 'electricsymphony' for consistency purposes, meaning basically that I wanted all my fandom involvement to be under the same pen name. Previous username was 'West of the Boulevard' and previous username before that was 'Seriously Serious Marauder'.
Hey guys. How are you? ;)
Anyways, welcome to my profile. You can call me Jamie, thanks for being here. Before I delve into the main portion of the profile message, first order of business:
Announcement to Anyone Following My HP Stories:
I'm sad to have to say this, but as of right now, all old HP stories are being discontinued. This is not to say that I will never write HP again--it's more than likely I will at least dabble in it again eventually. However, if and when I do, it'll most likely be a crossover, or if not, at least be a new work. I very much doubt that I will be continuing any unfinished HP story, and this unfortunately includes Turn Back Time. Every single person who gave me so much love and support during that experience is valued and appreciated in ways I can't adequately articulate, but it's been five years and I honestly have no more interest in continuing the story, nor any idea where I'd take it if I could manage to muster some. I'm so thankful to you all for that amazing ride, but I'm going to be focusing on other avenues.
With that said, I'll start off by saying that I'm focusing right now on TVD fics, and I will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. However, it is important to me for you guys to know that all my TVD stories so far and from here on out will be completely dismissive and non-compliant with S4, and any further season that may come after it. This is because, for one, I haven't actually seen any S4 episodes past 4x06 (once Elena's hallucination mother was urging her to jump off the bridge, I turned off the tv and haven't gone back to the live eps since), and secondly, because I do not agree with any direction the show has gone in since the onset of S4 and I also similarly disagree with the direction it continues to head in. I love this fandom, and its characters, and the potential that I see in them, and so I will continue to write for it because it's such an engaging writing platform with infinite possibilities.

Relationships that I'm still on board with--they've dwindled significantly over the seasons--and you can expect me to write often for TVD: (Please make note that all of these relationships do not pertain to current TVD canon, they are fanfic ships and conceptual interests; I don't support anything in current-TVD except perhaps Elena/gasoline and a box of matches and show/cancellation)
Damon Salvatore & Katherine Pierce : Always. The first scene I ever saw of TVD was a flashback of D&K and I fell in love.
Katherine Pierce & Elena Gilbert : Romantically and otherwise as well, but in all aspects of what the relationship could be. I'll take whatever form it comes in. It's just too interesting for it's own good--and for mine; I blame Nina Dobrev for being too amazing at acting opposite herself.
Elena Gilbert & Stefan Salvatore : :( (The sad emoticon is pretty indicative of how I feel about SE nowadays in and of itself that it hardly needs further explanation.)
Stefan Salvatore & Kol Mikaelson : Crackship? Perhaps on some level, but they have an interesting dynamic to me and I enjoy exploring it.
Elijah Mikaelson & Elena Gilbert : I think I shipped this for 2x19 to end-ish of S3, but now it's more conceptual as I don't believe it'll ever happen in the show--I hope it doesn't, they've ruined enough things I've loved.
Katherine Pierce & Kol Mikaelson : Why? I ask you, friends, why not? :P
Tatia & Rebekah Mikaelson : This is head-canon for me, it just makes so much sense.
Alaric Saltzman & Bonnie Bennett : This one is a little strange, I know, but there was this one scene in 3x08 between them that had me hooked on the idea ever since.
Things I Shipped in S1 and no longer support: (Oh, the lost Golden Age, how I pine for you)
Damon Salvatore & Elena Gilbert : Over the course of this tv show, this relationship was done disservice after disservice--abused, trivialized, dumbed down, ruined, shaped into a character-assassination weapon rather than a ship, etc... Delena could've been awesome, could've been so much more than the crap it was moulded into, but all it ended up being after S1 was the biggest let-down ever.
Caroline Forbes & Matt Donavon : Aw man, this ship was awesome. Their relationship throughout the entire S1 was wonderful. Back when Matt had a purpose and Caroline was not a one-trick vampire superhero.
Jeremy Gilbert & Tyler Lockwood : Am I the only one who started liking Tyler less as the seasons went on and not more? I found him more engaging as the bully with self-esteem issues than as the werewolf with Caroline issues.
Damon Salvatore & Bonnie Bennett : And I don't apologize for it. They really had some good ground work to expand upon during the middle of the season.
Damon Salvatore/Elena Gilbert/Stefan Salvatore : And yes, I mean that in the exact way it sounds. No further comment. ;)
Things I Will Never Write, Support or Read, Under Any Circumstance:
Stefan Salvatore & Katherine Pierce : I love both of these characters to hell and back, and this is why I don't ship them. For me, this relationship makes me hate the both of them, and that's just unnatural (the relationship and me hating either of them).
That's it. I'm open to trying almost anything if it's good. ;)
Devastation & Reform: TVD S4 Re-write founded upon the possibility that the blood Meredith used the change Elena was Kol's and not Damon's. Many plans for this one, and lots of relationship interaction. Focused primarily around Elejah, Datherine & an eventual Kol and Stefan. Most scenes (at least for the first set of this story) will be told from a point of view of Elena, Stefan or Kol, but everyone will have their turn; a lot of characters are and will become involved.
Numb: My resident Kat & Elena fic. It won't stay just the two of them, though. Oh no, there's a much bigger master plan with someone else pulling the strings that neither of them are very aware of. ;)
Affairs of the Corrupted: Harry Potter/TVD crossover fic centered around Tom Riddle & Katherine Pierce, in 1940s post-Grindelwald defeat London. Various HP Original and Canon Characters will be prevalent, as well as all the Mikaelsons, both Salvatore brothers, Lexi & Anna.
Upcoming Stories (Updated):
(New) 'Selective Oblivion', and its companion prequel 'Oh, Do You Suppose?'Selective Oblivion will be the first in a series that will detail the going-on's of an Alternate Universe 2009 Mystic Falls, based on one very simple change: Elena & Katherine role reversal. Keeping both of their personalities as true to the original character as possible while switching their roles (Elena as the first doppelganger sacrifice banished to England; Kat as the seventeen year old doppelganger discovered by one of the Salvatore's in present-day). Primary ships are Datherine & Stelena, also featuring Bonnie/Tyler, Alaric/Jenna & Caroline/Jeremy. Background ships of past Elejah, Klefan & Matt/Katherine. The prequel will be published first; half of it is already complete. Should be done in time for Christmas. ;)
I hope you enjoy my stories and thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings. :) I love to hear from each and every one of you, so drop me a line if you've got the time. ;)
