I'm Ani-maniac494, Ani-maniac, because I'm crazy about Anakin from Star Wars, and 494, because it's the designation of my favorite character from Dark Angel, Alec. You might also know me as LaughtersMelody on Live Journal and AO3, and some of the other fan fiction websites. :)
I'm a 31-year-old female who lives somewhere in the Rocky Mountain region of the U.S. I graduated from college with a BA in English and an emphasis in Creative Writing, and I'm currently working on my first original novel.
I started writing fan fiction back in 2005 after I saw Star Wars: Episode: III, and before I knew it, I was hooked, and I’ve been writing ever since. Over time, I’ve learned that fandoms are like potato chips…you can’t have just one…or two…or nine, lol… So, don’t be surprised to see fics from a number of different fandoms, though I tend to go through "moods" where I'm inspired to write for a certain fandom in particular.
In general, my fics often focus on relationships, whether that be friendship, family, or romance, and a good number of them are angst. A few are tragedy - I’m one of those strange people who likes killing off her favorite characters - but I write all different genres, so fluff and humor are there too. When it comes to romance, I usually find a pairing I like and stick to it. As far as main characters, I love to write about sarcastic/tragic heroes.
But, though I love to play in other universes, I am first and foremost a Christian. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, and I try to let that show in everything I write. I don't write or read slash, and I won't write anything rated above T (PG-13).
I hope that you will take a look at all of my stories and that you enjoy them. And if you have time, I hope you will check out my homepage and my fan fiction website as well. :)

My Personal Websites
My Live Journal - I post here under laughtersmelody. It's mostly fan fic, but there are some personal entries too. It's not friend-locked, though you can only comment if you have an account on LJ. But, if you do have an account feel free to friend me, or just stop by and say hi! :) You can visit at: h-t-t-p-s (:) (/) (/) laughtersmelody (dot) livejournal (dot) com (/) (Just remove the spaces, extra characters, and and parentheses.)
Imagination's Fire - This is my personal archive. It has essentially the same stories as my FF.N account, though there are a few different ones, including some original work. And some more of my rambling. (Because, clearly, I don't do that enough, lol.)

OnaG was kind enough to translate my Stargate: Atlantis fic, "Battle Of Wills," into French. If you'd like to read the French version, it can be found on FF.N, here.

I wanted to offer a shout-out to my fabulous beta, LaramieLady51, here on my profile. She's an absolutely fabulous beta, and I'm proud that's she my mom, as well as my friend, and sometimes, a fellow fangirl, lol. While I was growing up, she always encouraged my love of storytelling and writing, and it's been so much fun to continue to share that with her as an adult. My stories wouldn't be the same without her advice, and I thank her for every moment she's spent reading my stories, or letting me bounce ideas off of her. She's working on some of her own fics now, and though she's not sure when she'll be finished and ready to start posting, I sincerely hope you'll check out her work when you have the chance. :)
