Author has written 11 stories for House, M.D., Law and Order: SVU, Ouran High School Host Club, and NCIS: Los Angeles.
It's been several years now that I've had this fanfiction account, and sadly I have neglected it terribly. Not just with my startling lack of updates, but I'm hardly ever around to read anything anymore. I'm a writer, and have been for as long as I can remember. In the past few years I have completed my BA in English Lit and MA in International Journalism, and now that I'm paid to write - mostly press releases, some articles, research, etc. - and am a properly published poet, I believe I can officially say that "I am a writer". It's been a long time coming.
I've been doing a little writing on the side. I've been in my current writing position (Yay! I get paid to write on a daily basis! It's a miracle!) for nearly a year now, so my outside writing as fallen even more by the wayside. But I have had a few poems published and am working on a small collection that I hope to publish or, at the very least, post as an ebook online myself. In the meantime, I'm taking some classes on Public Relations for fun, working on getting my Pop Culture/Culture zine off the ground (I have writers, etc., but no website) and sending some poemy bits to various publications.
My favorite fanfic-related shows have traditionally been CSI, Law and Order: SVU and, of course, House M.D. I haven't tried my hand at a CSI fic, despite wanting to. As soon as I feel sure enough in my ability to corectly portray the characters, I had always planned to. I had a working idea for a Sara/Grissom piece, but during my year abroad I wasn't able to keep up with the show and have more-or-less lost interest; although I did watch Grissom's departure. And for all us Sara/Grissom-shippers out there-- they've kind of taken care of it so there's not much for me to contribute.
I've always been a big fan of anime and have recently moved to manga, with my current obsessions being Fruits Basket (aka. FURUBA), The Vision of Escaflowne (an older anime/manga series that I have been hooked on since highschool), and now, Ouran High School Host Club. I've recently been hooked (oh SO hooked!) on Fullmetal Alchemist (and Vic Mignogna) and, thanks to episodes available on VEOH, I'm creeping my way towards an affinity for Bleach (like I needed another anime/manga obsession!). I have been toying with the idea of writing something FURUBA but it's been put on a back burner since I'm focusing on Ouran at present. I'm such a girl.
Recently, I've seen - and, in typical Shannon-fashion - become utterly hooked on SyFy's Alice. So, I hope to start a fic about that sometime. As to my previous, ongoing and unfinished fics - Law and Order: SVU, House M.D., and FURUBA - I just don't have any new material. But hopefully I will soon. I'll keep you posted.
Thank you to everyone who has read, commented, and enjoyed my work. I crave release through writing and there is a big part of me that gets great satisfaction when something I have created brings others pleasure. I'm always open to constructive criticism and thank you to everyone who has guided me with their kind words. I hope you enjoy reading my fics as much as I enjoy writing them! (more, preferably :P) I always try to respond directly to all of my reviews, but if I don't get a chance to, please know they are greatly appreciated.
