Author has written 61 stories for CSI: New York, Harry Potter, Mary Poppins, Worst Witch, NCIS, Waterloo Road, Sarah Jane Adventures, Princess Diaries, and Devil Wears Prada.
Hello there! The name's Stella, resident of the British Isles and that most clichéd thing, a romanticist.
Previously ImSoReddie, ImSoSMacKED and ImSoMMAD but I just can't stick to one fandom. Too many beautiful places and people.
Sarah Jane Adventures (with the odd dip into Doctor Who, old and new. Anything Sarah Jane related is fine by me. And River Song too.)
Devil Wears Prada (Really, who doesn't love Meryl Streep? Plus Anne Hathaway, with subtext, is too good to pass up.)
Harry Potter (Minerva McGonagall is my ideal for later on in life. With Albus or Hermione, I'm happy. Possibly a little Severus/Hermione, Draco/Ginny - best friend's fault.)
Waterloo Road (Rachel Mason/Eddie Lawson, despite being a fond memory I still adore them.)
Bad Girls (Helen/Nikki are without doubt the best canon femslash storyline in any TV series. Also interested in Frances Meyers.)
Worst Witch (A touch too obsessed with HB, very willing to read femslash/Hardbroom with just about anyone.)
CSI:NY (Stella/Mac - forever & always, I don't care what happens), with a dabbling in the other series. (Gil/Catherine, Calleigh/Horatio)
Criminal Minds (Emily/JJ - unlikely, but so very gorgeous!)
Bones (Brennan/Booth, of course, with Angela/Hodgins mixed in occasionally.)
House MD (House/Cuddy all the way.)
Pride and Prejudice, along with the other classics. Not many books now come close.
Sound of Music, and really anything with the marvellous Julie Andrews on the cast list. Musicals full stop actually. Wicked on the West End in July 2007 remains in my top ten best experiences.
Number one? Meeting Eva Pope on the 22nd of May, 2010. Number two? An advanced screening of Death of the Doctor on October 12th, followed by a Q&A with Elisabeth Sladen, Katy Manning & others.
Sarah Jane Smith has overtaken Rachel Mason (something I never thought would happen) as my favourite fictional character. I could write an essay on how brilliant and marvellous a character she is, Elisabeth Sladen could not have done a better job, both in the old days and now. I wish I'd been able to tell her so.
Reddie (Rachel Mason/Eddie Lawson) is my One True Pairing. They were, are, and always will be. They have the most incredible relationship, so complicated but so utterly lovable. Reddie is what every relationship should be and I find it effortless to write them. Flirty, friendly, happy, but deep and understanding.
Last thing - I spend half my life firmly in fandom, I've found the most amazing friends there and I wouldn't be without it. Long Live Shippers Everywhere! And long live the 'ships/fandoms we all support, the people in them give so much and are truly the loveliest people you'll ever meet.
Assorted Scribbler do solemnly swear to review all the fics I enjoy, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.
I have joined the Review Revolution. Post this same thing in your profile and spread the love!
"Apology from Grantley Budgeon? You into black magic or something?" - Eddie Lawson
"Don’t go all Kevin The Teenager on me, Eddie." - Rachel Mason
"What hurts most, your neck or your ego?" - Rachel Mason
"She’s some woman." - Alison, grudgingly impressed
"Yeah. Second scariest woman in the world." - Eddie, almost smiling
"I believe in looking reality straight in the eye and denying it." - Garrison Keillor
"You haven't been straight with me since I-" - Jethro
"Quit?" - Jen
"Retired." - Jethro
"When you left on your margarita safari-" - Jen
"Maragarita safari?" - Jethro
"This Agency didn't shut down. New operations were put in motion. One sent Tony undercover." - Jen
"Well, I'm back and I won't have a part-time Senior Field Agent." - Jethro
"It's your own fault you know." - Jen
"For what? Leaving, or coming back?" - Jethro
"For teaching me your rules. Best way to keep a secret, keep it to yourself. Second best, tell one other person if you must. There is no third best. That's rule number four, isn't it?" - Jen
"Number one superceeds all of the others." - Jethro
"Hmm, never screw your partner?" - Jen
"Never screw over your partner." - Jethro
"I never screwed you over. And I'm not your partner. I'm your Boss." - Jen
"It does not do to dwell on dreams Harry, and forget to live." - Albus P.W.B. Dumbledore
"I should have made my meaning plainer," turning at last to look at Umbridge directly in the eyes. "He has achieved high marks in all Defence Against the Dark Arts tests set by a competent teacher." - Minerva McGonagall
"I was very impressed by how intently you tried to warn me. I never thought I would say this Andrea but I - I see a great deal of myself in you. You can see beyond what people want, and what they need, and you can choose for yourself." - Miranda Priestley
"To a well-organised mind, death is but the next great adventure." - Albus P.W.B. Dumbledore
"I am a teacher! I am a teacher, first, last, always! Do you imagine that for one instant I will let that be taken from me without a fight? I have dedicated, sacrificed my life to this profession. And I will not stand by like an inky little slacker and watch you rob me of it and for what? For what reason? For jealousy! Because I have the gift of claiming girls for my own. It is true I am a strong influence on my girls. I am proud of it! I influence them to be aware of all the possibilities of life... of beauty, honor, courage. I do not, Miss Mackay, influence them to look for slime where it does not exist! I am going. When my class convenes, my pupils will find me composed and prepared to reveal to them the succession of the Stuarts." - Miss Jean Brodie
"There's no reason to be petulent, Jethro." - Jen
"The word's pissed Jen, you know what, you can drop the Director act, we're alone." - Jethro
"You think my job is an act?" - Jen
"No, not all of it. Ass kissing on the Hill is a skill!" - Jethro
"So is castration." - Jen
"I wear a cup." - Jethro. Jen hands him a piece of paper. "What's this?"
"George Stewart's alias and work address. I managed to find it between kissing asses." - Jen
"Just proves you should've stayed a field agent!" - Jethro
"Remember Cedric. Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory." - Albus P.W.B. Dumbledore
"Really, Severus, I see no reason to stop the boy playing Quidditch. This cat wasn't hit over the head with a broomstick." - Minerva McGonagall
"There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness." - Friedrich Nietzsche
"You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be." - Albus P.W.B. Dumbledore
"You think it’s a good idea having her run this place do you?" - Stuart Hordley
"Yeah, I do actually." - Eddie, practically ignoring Stuart, he looks down at Rachel and gives her a slightly moon-faced smile. She tries to smile back.
"I bet you love working for a two-bit hooker, don’t you?" Stuart, with a knowing smirk as he circles around behind Eddie while the man he’s taunting tries not to react, looking anywhere but at Rachel. "I bet she gives it to you for free." Eddie gives disbelieving noise, looks down at Rachel as if to say ‘I’m not letting him get away with that’ then turns around and slogs Stuart right in the mouth. Rachel gasps slightly and stands up, eyes flicking between the two men in front of her. Stuart straightens up, still smirking somehow, sporting a cut lip.
"If you wouldn’t mind pissing off, Hordley. You’re starting to irritate us now." - Eddie. Rachel almost manages a smile at that. (Eddie’s such a Neanderthal in this scene, but I love him for it!)
"We’re great together Eddie. I love you, you can trust me on that." - Melissa, scrabbling at his jacket front.
"I’m sorry, I can’t listen to any more lies." - Rachel. First time she’s got slightly b*t*hy about the relationship.
"Ok!" - Melissa, letting go of Eddie and scrambling for a leg to stand on. "I know that I was wrong. But I’m not the only one whose been lying here, am I, Eddie?" Deep breath, she’s about to really take the plung. "What about Rachel?" Rachel's eyes are wide, praying her sister is not about to say what she thinks. "You’re in love with her Eddie." He pulls a face, but doesn’t deny it! "Or you were in love with her, you didn’t tell me that." Melissa, bitter sounding.
"Don’t you dare! Don’t you dare try and turn that round on me!" Rachel, furiously, hesitating for a millisecond to look at Eddie, but going back to Mel. "This has got nothing to do with me!"
"Rachel and I are fond of each other, but for you to imply-" - Eddie
"No you don’t, you don’t have to explain yourself Eddie! I know, I know you probably did love Rachel, but I – I – I just thought, I just thought, I thought you could love – me as well." - Melissa, really loosing it and shouting manically before dissolving into sobs.
"I do. I did."- Eddie, struggling but giving up and sighing. He still hasn’t denied any of it. Rachel hovers by the door, not sure is she has a place in this conversation, but drawn in by her compassion for the two people she cares most about in the world.
"We'll risk it, Sybill. Do sit down, the turkey's getting stone cold." - Minerva McGonagall
"Booth always says 'There are more things in this heaven and earth Bones than can be explained by your Science.' It's a bastardisation of a play called Hamlet." - Brennan
"Yes, I'm familiar with the play." - Dr. Wyatt
"I doubt it will make much difference, unless a mad axe-man is waiting outside the doors to slaughter the first into the Entrance Hall." - Minerva McGonagall
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” - Albus P.W.B. Dumbledore
"I wonder," in cold fury, turning on Professor Umbridge, "how you expect to gain an idea of my usual teaching methods if you continue to interrupt me? You see, I do not generally permit people to talk when I am talking." - Minerva McGonagall
Foul! Foul!" He's coming forward & pointing.
"My foot was behind that line!" - Rachel, delightedly defending herself.
"No way!" - Eddie, happily outraged.
"It was on the line." - Rachel
"Alright, McEnroe, if that’s the way you want to beat me... " - Eddie, walking away, arms out again, mockingly unimpressed with her again.
"Excuse me, are you calling me a liar?" - Rachel, almost giggling as she shoves his back a little, and he turns to face her, faces suddenly moving very close.
"Oh, I’m far too much of a gentleman for that." - Eddie, in a lowered tone as he realises how close they are. Rachel's eyes flick up and down, settling on his lips when she sees that’s where his are, and he slowly moves closer.
The perfect one.
"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away." - Philip K. Dick
SEVERUS SNAPE IS GOOD! I STOOD BY MY GREASY HARIED POTIONS MASTER!
I found this poem in weasleybabe24's profile and it's from the story Highly Improbable by Vocalion:
A Plea to Ms Rowling
Severus Snape is the Half-Blood Prince,
From “Spinner’s End” to “Flight of the Prince”,
Love looks not with the eyes at Snape,
Oh, hear our cry! Please let him live!
We like him flawed, just as he is.
You leave us clues to trust him,
You invent the greatest character —
So, Ms Rowling, won’t you spare our Snape?
