Fanfic: Because I can't believe they didn't show that scene!
Fanfic: I reject your fictional reality and substitute my own.
Fanfic: It's totally canon. Can't you read the subtext?
Fanfic: Because (A&B) should totally be together!
A bit about Lady Callista:
Female, 30ish, residing in Wisconsin, USA. Total geek; anime, manga, fantasy, sci-fi, Trekkie, VAMBie, Broadway/musicals, Gleek, vampires, table-top RPG's, CCG's (well, only Magic:TG), some video games and comics. Also teaching myself Japanese. Oh, and RenRat, not that anyone here probably cares about that. I've been writing fanfic for about half my life, and although I have done some original short stories, at this point I don't have the time to create my own world, and I'm having so much fun playing in other people's!
Favorites include (in no particular order): Glee, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek (all series although Voyager is my fav), Star Wars, Wheel of Time, Sword of Truth, Shannara, Dune, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Once Upon A Time, Charmed, Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire, Anita Blake, Bones, Harry Potter, Meredith Gentry, True Blood, Dexter, Dollhouse, Firefly, Sherlock, Anne Rice, Dark Hunter, Doctor Who, Torchwood, X-Men, Rurouni Kensin, Bleach, Naruto, Furuba, FMA, anything CLAMP... I could go on and on but I think those are all the main ones, lol.
Most Recently Completed:
"Hold On" and "Zugzwang" Once Upon a Time, Captain Swan. The first is a one-shot of cuteness, a missing night in Camelot, and the second is a Killian feelings piece on why, in my mind, he told Emma he 'loved' her.
Work Currently In Progress:
"Until I Found You" Once Upon A Time, Captain Swan, AU. She's running Granny's Inn for a few weeks, he's a screenwriter staying there... Yeah, I'm trying my hand at a modern AU. Wish me luck.
"Stars" Once Upon A Time, Captain Swan. A rewrite of the Neverland arc, and what might have happened if Emma had opened up just a little bit faster. Mostly follows canon but adjusts for changes. Captain Swan of course. I've always known that one day I would rewrite this arc.
On (long) Hiatus:
"A Lover and a Fighter" Once Upon A Time, Captain Swan. Set loosely about halfway through 4B, CS first time I'm just not sure how to end...
(I hesitate to say these next two are discontinued, because there is a chance that I will get back to them someday, but in all honesty my muse is pretty much not interested in working in either of these universes again, and hasn't been in years, so the odds of them ever being completed are low. My apologies, although at least neither is really a cliffhanger.)
"Scars" the sequel to "In Times That She Cried." After the Winter War series. Izuru/Momo It's only rated T, cause at the moment lemon content is not planned as I'm not sure I'm good enough with the characters to do one, however that may change. Momo finally started coming out of her shell at the end of ITTSC, but she's got a lot of healing left to do. And Izuru, and her other friends, are ready and willing to help her.
"Saving Forever," Rurouni Kenshin, Kenshin & Kaoru, the sequel to "Longing to Hold You."
Series: After The Winter War (Bleach)
Despite mention in various stories of works in progress, if the story isn't posted it will not be, as I ran out of steam/ideas while working on several stories in particular, and then on Bleach in general. It is highly unlikely there will be anything futher in this series, although I did enjoy creating it greatly and love that I'm still getting comments on it. I'm keeping this guide in my profile for easy reference.
Each fic makes perfect sense on it's own, but they also overlap into a bigger picture. By popular demand, all the After The Winter War pairings are: Rangiku/Gin, Toshiro/Karin, Izuru/Momo, Byakuya/Rangiku, Ichigo/Orihime, Renji/Rukia, Kisuke/Yoruichi, and Shunsui/Nanao.
This suggested reading order is the way I think they work best. Although since many of the main chapter-stories overlap, and many of the one-shots take place in the middle of the main stories, this reading order is somewhat relative. As I said, they all stand on their own. So just pick your favorite couple and have fun.
Prequel: "At Night" Rangiku/Shuuhei (as friends only). *one-shot* Only days after being betrayed by those they trusted most, Rangiku and Shuuhei end up crying in each other's arms. And as there is sake involved, it almost leads to more.
Prequel: "For Her Smile" Rangiku/Gin pairing. *main story* As the Winter War rages around him, Ichimaru Gin reflects on memories of the woman he loves. And as his part in it comes to an end, he must make Hitsugaya understand why she can never know the truth.
"One Step Behind Him" *reflections/thoughts* Various characters reflecting on a person who at one point was the most important person in their lives. A very different writing style than my normal one, so if you don't like this please give one of my other stories a chance before leaving.
"The One I Waited For" Renji/Rukia pairing. *main story* They've been friends and nakama for most of their lives, yet been too blind to realize that they both wanted to be more.
"No Warm Memories" Toshiro/Karin pairing. *main story* How do the icy child-genius and the tomboy who tries to live in denial reconcile their feelings for each other? Especially since they, literally, live in different worlds.
"In Times That She Cried" Izuru/Momo pairing. *one-shot* Momo retreated into her mind after the Winter War ended. Is there anything, or anyone, that can bring her back? How about a visit from a friend who has always wanted to be more than just a friend? (takes place between chapters 5 and 6 of "No Warm Memories.")
"Absence" Toshiro/Karin pairing. *one-shot* Toshiro is unable to visit Karin on Valentine's Day, but his friends give her a way to tell him how much she misses him. And his reply to her words is everything a girl could hope for. (Set during the nearly two year gap in "No Warm Memories.")
"Behind This Mask" Byakuya/Rangiku pairing (mention of Ran/Gin and Bya/Hisana). *main story* Rangiku is bored, and sees landing Byakuya as a challenge. Byakuya has been ordered by his family to remarry, and Rukia gives him the idea of getting them to back off by picking someone completely unsuitable. But the more they get to know each other, the more they realize they actually like each other.
"Paperwork," Byakuya/Rangiku pairing. *one-shot* Just a cute little ficlet about a bored Rangiku distracting Byakuya while he's trying to work. (Set during the nearly two year gap in "Behind This Mask.")
"Scars" Izuru/Momo pairing. *main-story* Momo may be walking and talking again, but she has a lot of healing left to do. Can she learn to trust, and to love, again? (The sequel to "In Times That She Cried.") *incomplete*
"Only A Kiss." Byakuya/Rangiku pairing. *one-shot* A slightly drunk Rangiku asks Byakuya to escort her home, amused by the fact that manners will have him accepting even though they are hiding their relationship from everyone. (Set during the nearly two year gap in "Behind This Mask.")
"I'll Stand By You" Ichigo/Orihime pairing. *main story* Orihime had loved Ichigo for years, although she has never found the courage to tell him. Ichigo almost died for her, but he did that for Rukia as well, indeed would do that for anyone he wanted to protect. Will she be able to tell him of her feelings, and if so, what are his for her?
"Until the Last Breath" Ichigo/Orihime pairing. With guest starring roles by RenRuk, ByaRan, HitsuKarin, ShuNa, UraYoru, and KiraHina. And in memory of Ran/Gin. *main story* Basically a continuation of my other main stories, this further explores the relationships of several of my main couples. (Sequel to, largely: I'll Stand By You. Also, sequel to: pretty much every story in this series except Hanabi.)
"Live and Love" Toshiro/Karin pairing. *one-shot* Set during chapter 9 of Until the Last Breath. Toshiro and Karin enjoy a night of quiet talk together.
"Dream Come True." Kisuke/Yoruichi pairing. *one-shot* Depressed a bit that all her friends are so happy with the men they love, Yoruichi finally decides to make her move on the man she's loved for more decades than she cares to count.
"Hanabi" (Fireworks) Toshiro/Karin pairing. *two-shot* The sequel to No Warm Memories, set three or so years after that fic ends. Karin has just graduated from the Academy, and is now a Shinigami. What does Toshiro have planned to celebrate this special occasion?
When choosing cover images for my stories, I drew mostly upon the huge collection of fanart I've saved and used as wallpapers and screensavers over the years. If anyone has the right to a pic, either let me know and I'll take it down or I'll give you credit for it, your choice. I just have no idea where any of them are from anymore, lol.
