UPDATE: FOR SOME REASON THE SITE IS BEING BUGGY AND REFUSES TO PUT IN THE PROPER LINKS TO MY TUMBLR OR MY DEVIANT ART PAGE. UNTIL THE ISSUE IS FIXED, YOU CAN FIND ME ON TUMBLR AT "BEYOND THE WARDROBE" AND ON DA AS "DUCHESSALIANA". SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
Warning: No flaming of any kind will be allowed, lest the Night Fury guarding this profile be awakened and provoked to blast fire at you. Also, I may or may not Force-throw you if you act disagreeable. Depends on my mood.
FYI: IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT ANY OF THIS PERSONAL STUFF, JUST SKIP TO THE UPCOMING PROJECTS/LINKS AT THE BOTTOM.
Name(s): In real life, my name is Amanda. On FictionPress and tumblr I also go by Miss Pookamonga (feel free to follow me if you can handle crazy fangirling over about a million fandoms!). On deviantArt and YouTube I go by DuchessAliana.
Age: Somewhere in that 20-something zone when you realize that (a) being an adult sucks, and that (b) there's never going to be a time when you actually feel like an adult, so it's better to just be a gigantic kid for the rest of your life.
Occupation: As of now, a part-time teacher's aide at a preschool in the 2 and 3-year-old classroom. To some people that may sound like hell, but to me it's one of the most rewarding things I could do with my time. I love those kids almost as much as if they were my own. (In my free time I attempt to be an actor. It's a work in progress).
Dream Job: If I could have my way, some miraculous combination of working with kids, acting, writing, filmmaking, and making music/art.
Favorite Hobbies/Activities: Reading, writing, drawing, dancing, singing/playing music, swimming, hiking, acting, video editing.
Religious Affiliation: In Narnia, an Aslanite. In this world, Roman Catholic. I am a committed Christian but I am not a bigot, so unless you know me, please refrain from throwing ill-formed accusations at my virtual face.
Favorite Authors/Playwrights/Poets: C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ray Bradbury, Edgar Allan Poe, Lois Lowry, J.K. Rowling, William Shakespeare, Lemony Snicket, Madeleine L'Engle, W.B. Yeats, John Keats, T.S. Eliot.
Favorite Disney Princess: ...Kylo Ren (What? he's a drama queen and a Disney property. It totally qualifies.)
Random Fact #1: I'm good friends with KateMarie999, author of the Growing Up Haddock series in the HTTYD fandom. We often do some crazy brainstorming that results in crazy fanfic plotbunnies and headcanons that I never end up writing (unfortunately). But anyway, her fics are great, so give them a read (and you can also follow her on tumblr as well)!
Random Fact #2: My sister is also an author on this site! If you pay close attention to my recent and upcoming author's notes (and some tumblr posts), you may be able to guess who she is ;)
Fandoms (aka mostly what I reblog/like on tumblr if it's there):
I have a LOT of other things I'm a fan of, but I won't list all of them because it would take way too long.
Top Ships (I suffer from Chronic Shipper Syndrome, so be very afraid):
Crossover Ships (I'm not normally into this, but I have a few I do like):
I also have a LOT of other things that I ship, but again, I'm not listing them all here because it would take up too much time and space.
RECENT & UPCOMING PROJECTS
Unbelievable- A Tomadashi prequel to Big Hero 6 that will explore the development of Gogo and Tadashi's relationship from their first meeting up through the beginning of the movie. This fic will also serve as a prelude to/setup for the Immortals series. LOTS of fluff, but there will be some angst near the end.
Immortals - A series of two, maybe three stories with a continuing story arc that will chronicle the BH6 team's exploits after the movie. I can't give away much in the way of plot for fear of epic spoilerage. However, I can say that it will include some pretty awesome villains, some characters from the comic that I'm putting my own spin on, references to the MCU, Stan Lee cameos, secret organizations, and angst-filled romantic entanglements (because those are the best kind, ehehehe).
Untitled Big Hero 6 Spy!AU: An idea that's been floating around in my head for awhile where the BH6 team are undercover operatives at a secret counterintelligence agency led by Fred's father. Tadashi and Gogo are paired up as partners and sent on a mission together, where action, espionage, and a lot of sexual tension ensue. Will contain a fair amount of Tomadashi, both angst and fluff.
The Diary of Kylo Ren (Working Title): A MASSIVE multifandom AU crossover parody heavily inspired by the Emo Kylo Ren Twitter account, chronicling Kylo Ren's day-to-day experiences in high school. Pretty much every fandom you can think of will probably end up in this as either students, parents, or school staff. Obviously Kylo hates them all, except for a select few people. The only thing is, the people he does like don't seem to care much - Loki always ignores him, his crush Gogo Tomago prefers Poe and Tadashi's goody-goody gang, and Tom Riddle still won't let the guy into his exclusive clique. He can't seem to achieve the fame he wants because that stupid Hiccup kid is always the talk of the school (who cares if he lost a foot?), and he's always being followed around by Rey and her obnoxious little friends, Hiro and Riley. Not to mention his parents have subjected him to weekly group counseling with an over-inflated marshmallow nurse named Baymax ever since homeschooling with Uncle Luke ended in disaster. Yeah, life sucks.
Daddy Dearest (Working Title): Another multifandom AU crossover fic focusing on the domestic life of none other than the God of Mischief, Loki himself. When Odin learns that Loki has irresponsibly been sleeping around and has "accidentally" fathered four children - Elsa, Heather, Anna, and Jack - the Allfather punishes him by forcing him to spend one year on Midgard raising the little tykes. Hilarious shenanigans ensue, including but not limited to: the Avengers babysitting and completely failing, Tadashi Hamada babysitting and unwittingly making all the Lokison girls fall in love with him, awkward parent-teacher meetings, Jack Frost repeatedly wandering off and causing trouble, and the kids attempting to set Loki up with that cute nanny Grandma Frigga sent along. Think Despicable Me with Loki as Gru.
