Author has written 4 stories for Yu-Gi-Oh, and Winx Club.
*last updated: 07-26-2013*
WAILF: Chapter 1 has officially been started! I'm hoping to get some more writing done on it and to have it posted by Monday, July 29, but don't quote me on it. ;) Since it's the first chapter, not much will really happen, but I'm hoping to get at least the setting and everything involved. I have it marked as AU because it's, well, using "parasites" (or as I'm going to call them Spirits) when those don't exist in the real Winx Club world. However, it will be set in one of the realms of the show. I'm just not sure which realm. [/sheepish laugh]
So, I was told I should edit my profile, which is why it's so barren, really. But whatever—my interests vary so often, it's ridiculous. Let's just start with the basic stuff, hm?
My name is Erica, but I prefer to be called "Lori" on internet sites (hence the Penname). I turned 20 on March 10th this year, and I have the world's most insane dog named Jia (whose full name is Jiada Chichi Epperson). She's a Yorkie, and she'll be three years old in October. I've always been told Yorkie's have distinctive personalities, and I can attest that she's definitely got her own personality. She might be borderline psychotic, honestly, but we love her.
My best friend/best sister ever is Sarah. She has an account on here as CrankyEmily. She's probably one of the few people in this world that fully understands me, even when I don't understand myself, and she's a saint for putting up with all my shit over the years. I don't know how I ended up with such an amazing friend, but I hope everyone manages to make a friend like her in their lifetime because it's just needed. Neither of us get to see each other as often as we'd like, but we make do.
I have a Twitter account, though I don't do much with it (just like my poor tumblr blog). If you'd like to follow me on it, my account name is @TotallyLori. If you do follow me, please let me know you're from here by tweeting/mentioning me. If I get enough people following me, I might just post information on my progress for Winxspray. C; [/coughcoughhinthint]
And now my favorites. This is going to be very condensed compared to what it could be, so bear with me.

The Thirteen Commandments of Fanfiction
1. Thou shalt not write Mary-Sue or Gary-Stu stories. EVER.
Here goes nothing:
1. Have you ever read a Six/Eleven fic? Do you want to?
Bloom/Layla fic? Absolutely NOT. Thank God. And I never would. -Shudder.-
2. Do you think Three is hot? How hot?
Do I think Helia is hot? Hells yes There is nothing wrong with Flo Rida. I mean, he's not Sky but... XD
3. What would happen if Twelve got Eight pregnant?
If Nabu got Brandon pregnant, I think that Tecna would freak out and want to know how it was possible. Lol. And then, well, I don't know. Brandon would have a helluva time during child birth.
4. Can you recall any fics about Nine?
Tecna fics? Oh, yes. Definitely.
5. Would Two and Six make a good couple?
Bloom and Sky, a good couple? Naw. -Rolls eyes.- Of course they would Those two are absolutely perfect together. Can't go wrong with them. ;D
6. Five/Nine or Five/Ten? Why?
Riven/Tecna or Riven/Timmy? Well, no offense to Tecna, but I would go with Riven/Timmy. As for the why of it? Well, I can actually imagine Riven and Timmy together. I mean, it's not like it's impossible. And I have nothing wrong with gay people.
7. What would happen if Seven walked in on Two and Twelve having sex?
If Stella walked in on Sky and Nabu, I believe she would first start cussing him out, and then Bloom would be called in, and the bed they were in would be set on fire, and they would have to beg for mercy for at least five minutes. Sky would be making it up to her for forever. XD
8. Make up a summary for a Three/Ten fic.
Haha. A Helia/Timmy fic? It'd be a one-shot, for starters.
Hmmm... Okay, here goes nothing: It was never really questionable. Honestly, with how Helia was, why wouldn't they know he was gay? But of course, the only one who knew was the male nerd: Timmy. And he's been wanting to talk to the other guy about it for a while, just to get the bearings. But when he actually does, confront Helia, Timmy learns something unexpected about himself.
Title: Poetry for Electronics? XD Sorry, first thing I could think of.
9. Is there any such thing as One/Eight fluff?
Flora/Brandon fluff? Of course Those two would actually be precious together, really. In my opinion, they're one of the odd shippings that could be pulled off with the right strings.
10. Suggest a title for a Seven/Twelve hurt/comfort fic.
Stella/Nabu...? Huh, give me a moment.
I need to get my bearings for it first. So, this is the lowdown: When Layla died trying to save her home realm, Nabu was never the same, and neither were some of the Winx girls. Most went on like normal, stayed with their high school sweethearts. Stella wasn't one of the lucky ones because her parents never approved of Brandon. And then Nabu was brought to visit her as a potential suitor, and a friendship ensues.
Didn't have to be a love fic. Lol. As for the title, well... I came up with: Tides Are Made by the Moon
11. What kind of plot would you use if you wanted Four to deflower One?
If Musa wanted to deflower Flora? Well, that would be an odd one. 'Specially since I'm used to stuff like that being more-so Bloom and Flora or Musa and Tecna, but anyway
The plot would consist of some crazy chaos going on, then. Darcy would come back and steal Riven or something, so Flora would probably wind up being the comforter. And then after a lot of problems, Musa would realize she was falling for one of her friends, and it would scare her. But then she'd remember that she should be comfortable with however she was, so she would just let it be and wouldn't tell Flora about it until the brunette girl finally asked, "How long have you liked girls?" And then awkwardness would ensue. But they'd have a happy ending. XD
12. Does anyone on your friends list read Three het?
Helia het? Well, duh Why wouldn't they?
13. Does anyone on your friends list write or draw Eleven?
Write or draw Layla? HA! That's funny. No. They wouldn't/don't.
14. Would anyone on your friends list write Two/Four/Five?
Sky/Musa/Riven. Pfft. No, I don't think so. It'd be kind of weird, really. Mainly 'cause I think of Sky and Musa as cousins. Long story; you'd understand if you read my fics. ;D
15. What might Ten scream at a moment of great passion?
What would Timmy scream? I don't know; it depends on what "passion" he's feeling. We'll skip over one that has to do with Tecna and go on to one about some invention or something. He'd probably run into the lounge and scream, "GUYS! GUYS! I DID IT! WE NOW HAVE A BUTTON ON OUR SUITS THAT WILL BRING OUT WHATEVER FOOD WE WANT!"
16. If you wrote a Song-fic about Eight, what song would you choose?
A song-fic about Brandon? Wow. That's actually really difficult. Uhm... I guess it would have to be a fic where he's not with Stella and is in love with, like, one of the guys or something. So, "Ever Fallen in Love" by Pete Yorn.
17. If you wrote a One/Six/Twelve fic, what would the warning be?
Flora/Bloom/Nabu? Haha. That would be fun. :D But it would probably be rated Teen. I mean, there's nothing hot and heavy gonna happen, though there would be some reference, probably.
18. What might be a good pick up line for Ten to use on Two?
For Timmy to use on Sky? Lol. That's a good question. Well, assuming Sky wasn't either completely and totally in love with Bloom or with his best friend Brandon (don't even--you know you've thought about it, too), and assuming Timmy was willing to be, erm, dirty for a day, then mayhaps Timmy would go up to him and say, "What do you say we go back to my crib and do some math: Add a bed, subtract our clothes, divide your legs, and multiply?"
It was too tempting to pass up, guys. XD
19. When was the last time you read a fic about Five?
Read a fic about Riven? I'm kinda writing one. I mean, it's about ALL the traditional couples, but you know...
20. What is Six's super secret kink?
Bloom has a super secret kink? For reals? I didn't know this. :o
But if I had to guess, I would say... that she... either liked to be dominant, or she liked to do cosplay. XD
21. Would Eleven shag Nine? Drunk or sober?
Would Layla shag Tecna? To me, yes, yes she would. Tecna might not be so willing, however. So Tec would have to be drunk. Layla could be either sober or drunk.
22. If Three and Seven get together, who tops?
Helia and Stella? Well, Helia's... sweet. XD So, Stell would top. I could see her being a dominatrix.
23. "(1) and (9) are in a happy relationship until (9) runs off with (4). (1), brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with (11) and a brief unhappy affair with (12), then follows the wise advice of (5) and finds true love with (3). " What title would you give this fic?
Flora and Tecna are in a happy relationship until Tecna runs off with Musa. Flora, brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with Layla and a brief unhappy affair with Nabu, then follows the wise advice of Riven and finds true love with Helia.
Hot damn That was totally awesome. Flora and Helia are so good for each other.
As for a title? Well, I would probably title it, "A Bruised Rose." But that's just me. I might change it later on.
24. How would you feel if Seven/Eight was canon?
If Stella/Brandon was canon? It wouldn't bother me. Since they're together already. XD
