Author has written 6 stories for Legend of Zelda, Harry Potter, and Harvest Moon.

Hello everyone.

My name is Elizabeth. I am a senior in college, and I'm majoring in English with a specialization in creative writing. I enjoy writing immensely, and I really hope that it takes me somewhere someday. I have already had a couple of things okay-ed to be published online, and I write comics for fun.

I have been taking a ton of writing and literary classes, so hopefully my writing has improved. Hope you enjoy my stories, and please let me know what you think. Comments, questions, and constructive criticism are all greatly appreciated.

AUTHOR'S NOTES:

January 04, 2009:

Happy New Year, everyone!

I have been through surgery, so I've been pretty doped up on medicine. I made an update in The Shy Newcomer, so stop by and read and review. :)

November 28, 2008:

To all my American readers and friends: Happy Thanksgiving!

To All My Readers,

I did not forget about you :). The reason that I have not updated yet is because my laptop is in the shop. I have been having difficulty with the hard drive, and I may have to end up getting a new laptop. As for now, I am using the desktop downstairs, which is riddled with viruses and is in constant demand.

So I am hoping to have a new chapter posted as soon as I can, but I can't tell you guys any specifics on when that date will be. :(

November 11, 2008:

I'm really sorry for the delay in updating. I've been going through some stressful times. However, I've been thinking a lot, and writing means a lot to me, and it's important to me to show my writing to others, even if it is just fan-fiction. Therefore, I am planning to make more time for my writing and update more often.

I have posted a new chapter in The Roommates.

I just finished writing a lot in The Shy Newcomer. It's starting to pick up pace. I should have the chapter posted within the next couple of days.

As for A Lump of Copper, I feel that it is complete the way it is. I've been reading, rereading it, and even attempting adding on, but nothing feels right, and I don't feel it would be fair to just add more to the story if it didn't match with the rest. Thus, A Lump of Copper is officially completed. I appreciate all the reviews and support all of you have given me on this story. I also may write another 1st person Gray in the future, but I don't want to make any promises.

I am also going to limit the number of stories I work on so that I am able to update more often.

So, with that all said, I thank you all for checking out my profile, and my stories. I love getting PMs, questions, or comments. Or, if you just want someone to bounce story ideas off of, fan-fiction or not, I am here. Also, if there's a story you're writing that you want me to check out, let me know! :)

ACTIVE STORIES:

Harvest Moon:

The Roommates: MFoMT. 3rd person, Gray/Cliff alternating points of view. Gray isn't the best at accepting change, especially when it means sharing his living space with a mysterious young man. On top of that, a new farmer has moved into the farm to the south. I really wanted to write a story that focused on Gray and Cliff as roommates and their developing friendship, and I am having a lot of fun writing this one. This one will definitely be a longer story. (No, this is not GrayxCliff)

The Shy Newcomer: MFoMT. 3rd person, Claire's point of view. Claire is new to town, and she is having a hard time fitting in. Meeting new people terrifies her, but there is one young man who quickly catches her eye. As Claire's friendships and relationships form, will she have what it takes to make it in Mineral Town? Or will she move back to the city? (Friendship/Romance)

Harry Potter:

Second Chances: DMHG. Hermione and Draco get stuck as partners for a huge project in potions class. Will the two learn to work together before it is too late? (This is a revision of my very first Fan-fiction. It was posted a few years ago, but my writing style has changed.) Verrrry long fic.

Legend of Zelda

New Beginnings: OoT. Ganondorf has been given a second chance through Zelda's rehab program. The problem is, he has to take orders from a Kokiri and dwell in a whole village of them. How long will it take before Ganondorf goes insane? Are people capable of change? (Also a revision of a story I wrote years ago. I got some good plans for this one -)

COMPLETE STORIES:

A Lump of Copper: Harvest Moon MFoMT. 1st person Gray's point of view. Gray is not the easiest person to make friends with. He has a hot temper and little patience. But a certain blonde farmer won't take "no" for an answer. Short Fic.

Preparing: Harry Potter Oneshot. Draco is preparing for his sixth year at Hogwarts. What is it like to live on the other side?
