Author has written 10 stories for Silmarillion, Dragon Age, Star Wars, and Star Wars.
Female, twenties, recent college graduate. Work nights, fanfic author and rather terrible but enthusiastic gamer in my spare time. I smoke too much, exercise too little, and own one cat too many. Aspiring librarian, hermit, and crazy cat lady. Will be a pilot someday, somehow. When I get bored and have nothing to read, I like to imagine that I'm retelling the Star Wars saga to a group of Vikings. Even I don't know why.
I read anything I can get my hands on, from science books to classic literature to regency romances, but my favorite genres will always be fantasy and science fiction. Mostly I write one-shots with little seriousness; currently, I'm trying to write a KOTOR walkthrough because the characters won't stay out of my head. I used to have a few chapters of a VTM walkthough up, but it disappeared, and I'm trying to gather the gumption to rewrite it. It doesn't help that I don't have the computer that had the game on it, but I've recently discovered something called "Steam," so perhaps I can find a copy there.
Favorite Authors: Terry Pratchett, Robin McKinley, Dianna Wynne Jones, Neil Gaiman, Tolkien (of course), Mary Roach, Mercedes Lackey, Jim Butcher, Brad Warner, Lois McMaster Bujold, and Garth Nix, off the top of my head. Oh, and Raymond Chandler! And now N. K. Jemisin. And how could I forget James Thurber or Ambrose Bierce? Martha Grimes, too. Byron. Patrick Rothfluss. George R. R. Martin. Brandon Sanderson is also pretty good. The list grows daily.
Recently I've been reading or re-reading a lot of the Star Wars EU for research, and my favorite authors in that are Timothy Zahn, Michael Stackpole, Aaron Alliston, and Matthew Stover. I try not to think about anything after the Thrawn Duology because it makes me start frothing at the mouth and babbling with incoherent nerd-rage.
I have some stories in progress, all Star Wars. A Matter of Choice is on hold indefinitely, because I want to work my way through the entire game; Shaped by Circumstance has been rewritten, and I've begun posting the beta'd chapters. Knights and Pawns is a side project in the Clone Wars era, which I've become tangled in despite my objections. I also have a bunch of Dragon Age and VTM: Bloodlines stuff saved on my old laptop, but I'm not sure if I'll ever get around to putting any of it together. And there's my half-forgotten intention to do a sort of LEXX history lesson, which I've probably abandoned.
