Author has written 50 stories for Smallville, O.C., Law and Order: CI, Being Human, and Captain America.
Hello, my name is Lisa and i hail from Northern England.
I've been writing in some way shape or form for a very long time. My favourite subject at school was English (and history) and my particular favourite lesson was creative writing when i was in primary and middle school so i guess it all started from there. I've been writing fan fiction for well over fifteen years now but it's only since about 2005 that i felt confident enough to share it with other people. I wrote Angel fanfic extremely badly and it never saw the light of day. The first shared fandom was Smallville, namely Clark Kent though i loved writing more about his bad side, namely Kal-El, on red kryptonite. I moved onto Law and Order: Criminal Intent and a big chunk of my fics here are from that fandom concentrating on the character of Detective Robert Goren. I then concentrated on writing Being Human fanfiction and only the UK version. I originally wrote about Mitchell and I said a fond farewell to him to concentrate on Hal. I completed a real labour of love with a multi chapter Hal opus that i had a lot of fun in writing (Numb) . Given that Being Human is no more, i can't say when, if ever i'll return to that fandom but never say never, it was a fantastic one to write in.
I don't really 'do' ship fics. Shipping causes nothing but argument and dissention in some fandoms and i can do without all of that. It's probably why most of my fics have an Own Character, someone to bounce the main character against. I'm into characters rather than ships. Even canon ones. I like the complicated characters the most; Robert Goren, John Mitchell, Hal Yorke, Bucky Barnes- not a single one of them is uncomplicated on screen and that's what fascinates me about them.
I am drawn to fics that are true to the character, where i can hear that character speak those words. I love 'what if' fics, fics that think a little bit out of the box, i like angst, i do like a bit of humour (though find it hard to write it myself) and i love drama. I also like fics where the author has taken time with grammar (though mine does slip on occasion, a very bad habit of mine), spelling, layout and little things like speech marks. Believe me, they all matter. If i like a fic enough then i'll happily leave a review :)
I'm a big fan of the Marvel/DC universe- Captain America, Bucky Barnes being my favourite characters. My first superhero love was Superman, still is to a degree which is why i love both. I do watch the DC tv stuff; Arrow, The Flash and even Legends of Tomorrow. I also love Supernatural, crime drama, some medical drama and a lot of leave your brain at the door kinda stuff too though i'm not a fan of reality tv at all.
I like to write with music in the background, in fact me and my red iPod are rarely apart when i am writing. My music loves include Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, The Black Keys, Royal Blood, Nothing But Thieves and Seether.
I also like to read, my favourite authors being Cynthia Harrod-Eagles (Morland Dynasty), Elizabeth Chadwick, Nora Roberts, J.D.Robb, Karen Rose, Mary Burton,Kate Morton, Kate Rhodes, Elly Griffiths, Kate Mosse, I enjoy crime novels, historical novels and the occasional travelogue.
I find writing to be a catharsis, i am a very proud parent of a young adult on the autistic spectrum who also has severe learning difficulties and it has been tough at times so writing is my way of decompressing. I thank the day my husband of a long time bought me my first laptop (i'm now onto my third) thus allowing me to indulge in my passion. I find the time to power up, plug in my iPod and i'm off, in a world of my own.
I'm also a big history fan, namely British history and i like to do word searches. My family thinks that i'm a geek but i'm just happy.
Incidentally, I don't allow my fics to be hosted or posted elsewhere unless with express permission.
So if you've got this far through my profile then hello and i hope you take a look at my fics and enjoy them. Reviews are always welcome.
