Hello! Thanks for stopping by!
Some info about me below.
Feel free to get in touch via review or PM if you have questions or comments. I don't log in regularly but I will respond when I can! It's always nice to hear from people :)
If you're looking for moderately good, infrequently updated fic on my fandom-of-the-moment, you are in the right place. I tend to go through intense loving phases with fandoms and then go away from them for a while. Plus RL keeps me very busy most of the time.
I'm usually more of a reader. I highly recommend the stories and authors in my favorites. Everything there is a great read. In all fandoms I'm really interested in AU fics or unusual ideas (as long as everyone is in character) or blank spaces filled in, more than fics that just rehash events from canon. Although I am always down to read something extremely well written of any kind.
I dabble in writing when I get an idea I can't resist, but have a lot more I don't end up writing. Lack of time is a big factor in not writing as much as I'd like to. One day I'd love to write an original fiction novel. As always, having the time to sit down and do it is my nemesis!
I've been publishing here for over 10 years now (!) so I'm sure you'll notice a huge difference in the quality of my earlier and newer stories. I'd like to think my writing is developing all the time. Feedback is very welcome.
I know I have so many incomplete WIPs! :( I may update and complete all my WIPs at some point, but I can't guarantee when. Could be literally years from now, and I may never get around to finishing some of them. I'm very sorry about that, believe me I know and understand from experience it's extremely frustrating to wait for updates on a story you really like or discover the author has no plans to finish a story that you were hooked on. If you are interested in taking over and continuing any of my WIPs, please PM me about it rather than just copying it without credit. And again, I'll direct you to my favs list to tide you over with excellent fic.
My Ships and Fandoms:
Harry Potter - I keep coming back to Harry Potter over and over, time after time. The world and characters are just so rich and engaging. I've yet to get bored. Even if I go away for a while I'll always come back. I haven't written in it in ages but read a lot of it still. There's just so much great stuff still going years after the canon books have finished. I'm constantly finding new and brilliant fic that I love and can always dive in and come up with something new and great. It's awesome that we can all live in this world together. Remus/Tonks was my original years ago. To this day I'm so impressed with the stellar quality writing talent in that ship. There are still R/T stories I loved years ago that I'll come back and read every couple years that are such great quality pieces of writing. R/T: attracting the quietly great authors probably because all those people secretly wanna date Remus. ;) More recently I'm enjoying Sirius, Harry, and Draco centric things, in general I'm interested in Sirius, Harry, Draco, Remus, Tonks, Snape, Lily, James, Hermione, Lucius, Narcissa, Andromeda, Ted, Bellatrix, Neville, Pansy Parkinson, Petunia, Teddy, Victoire, Harry's kids, Fred and George and sometimes Ginny as characters and in various combinations of pairings both romantic and not. I also love a good female Harry AU and always looking for recs of those. I've even enjoyed a well written OC or two (most recently Orion Black from cywscross' C'est La Vie, who I think I might be a little bit in love with. Although a combination of the most swoon-worthy qualities of both Remus and Sirius and an underdog to boot - can you blame me?!) My latest obsession is the Harry/Neville best friendship in Emcee Frodis' Twisted Stone (and the AU in that fic in general - Harry was raised by Sirius and Neville's parents weren't attacked). Would love some great Harry/Neville best friend recs if anyone has any.
Hunger Games - Love and miss the people in the HG fic writing community! Originally I was all about Katniss/Peeta, but lately when I circle back to read I've been partial to Katniss/Gale. Also have read some Gale/others and Finnick/Annie. Clove and Johanna interest me as a characters.
Alias - this has been another fandom I keep coming back to. One of my first and longest held. I started out with Syd/Vaughn, but quickly moved on to Irina/Jack and it's their juicy complexity as a couple and compelling characters that keep me coming back.
Other fandoms - Jasper/Alice (Twilight), Elphaba/Fiyero (Wicked), Chuck/Blair (Gossip Girl), Rizzo/Kenickie (Grease), Leslie/Ben (Parks & Rec), April/Andy (Parks & Rec), Jim/Pam (The Office), Angel/Collins (Rent), Dennis/Sharon (Eastenders), Alfie/Kat (Eastenders), Neo/Trinty (The Matrix), Marla/whoever (Fight Club), Desmond/Penny (LOST), Kate/Jack (LOST), Sawyer/anyone (LOST), Fiona/Steve (Shameless UK and US), Lip/whoever (Shameless US), Ian/Mickey (Shameless US), Captain/Maria (Sound of Music), Jordan/Perry (Scrubs), Marisa/Asriel (HDM), Drover/Sarah (Australia), Satine/Christian (Moulin Rouge), Jo/Laurie (Little Women), Jamie/anyone (GoT), Anne Boleyn/Henry VIII, probably some others I'm forgetting and/or some new ones I've fallen in love with since writing this. Check out my favs list, it's a treasure chest.
Basically any cute shy or slightly submissive guy who's devoted to a strong/confident/talented woman, it's probably up my street! And I love a good anti-hero/misunderstood bad guy.
Anyone waiting for an update on LYLT (or any of my fics):
Update as of July 2012 -
Real life is demanding all of my time and focus at the moment. It's nothing bad, in fact it's really great. That's all I'll say about it here as I like to keep RL and fandom separate. It does mean that I'm not able to log in to FFN, keep up with reading & reviewing stories, or - most importantly in the case of LYLT - have time to write and update my own fics at the moment.
I'm incredibly sorry to anyone who is very invested and waiting for an update. I know that feeling and it is the worst. I am so grateful for all the interest the story has gotten and really appreciate you taking the time to read and feedback and get invested in the story and characters enough to be desperate to read more and find out what happens next. You're welcome to keep leaving notes and I'm happy to receive any comments but please don't labor under the assumption that it will be able to encourage or persuade me to post. It's not that I don't want to, I just can't right now. I don't have anything pre-written so I'm not withholding anything, I just am not able to continue writing at present due to RL commitments/necessities.
I know this isn't what you wanted to hear. It's not what I want to have to say either. But I wanted to check in and ease the minds of those who were worried I'd fallen off the face of the earth! I will be back as soon as I can. Until then please check out the authors and fics in my favs to tide you over - they are all fantastic reads. The HG fic community is a wonderful bunch of talented sweet people that I'm honored to be a part of so I hope to be back with you all soon.
Second Update as of January 2015 -
The above is still the case! And wow, time flies.
I actually have a little time off sick for a couple weeks but I've accidentally gotten into a different fandom when I know I should be writing LYLT (/*insert fic name of your choice here*) instead. I'm sorry! When the inspiration's there it'll be there. It wouldn't be the same story if I wasn't into it while writing it. Miss the HG fandom though. And back to RL work soon so who knows when I'll be back again!
If it helps (new readers especially) I've decided to try and only post oneshots if I have to post at all now, so I hopefully won't leave anything else unfinished and will only start what I have time for.
If you're interested in why I changed my name, this one just makes me laugh. I find it really funny and silly when stories detail that someone "popped the p". It's so prevalent I've been tempted to write this myself on occasion. But really it is just completely hilarious to me.
Miss you guys!
