This is my pretty bio.

Name: Off Dreaming (rather explanitory, don't you think?)

Age: 22

Home: California, USA


July 15, 2013. I have been receiving a lot of worried messages asking if I am alright. I am! I am alive! Fear not, lovely readers! However, I have decided to take a step back from fanfiction and begin working on nonfiction and travel writing. I know this means that OTOS will be left hanging, and for that I am truly sorry. I had lots of wonderful ideas and aspirations for that story, but I can no longer write that story with all my heart. If you have any questions or curiosities about the story, please feel free to message me. I'll try to answer them. Until then, farewell lovely readers! I have appreciated all your support, criticism, and zealous reviews. Stay awesome.

ABOUT MY WORK (and other random things you might want to know)

The Reign of Kellyn Wood: Warning: 7TH BOOK SPOILERS!! It’s been 24 years since Voldermort has been defeated by the Boy Who Lived and time for a new generation to rock Hogwarts. Meet the dramatic and clever seventeen-year-old Kellyn Wood, daughter of Oliver Wood and Cho Chang. After her father retired from his job as a professional Quidditch player when she was 10, the whole family has lived all over the world. Oliver promises one last move and they end up in back in England where Kellyn and her thirteen-year old brother, Declan Wood, finally attend Hogwarts. They are immediately welcomed, but never-the-less make some enemies too and prove themselves as Quidditch superstars. Scorpius Malfoy, Rose and Hugo Weasley, and James, Albus, and Lily Potter make their debut. All the turmoil is to be expected, after all, they are the new kids.

This is my first Harry Potter fanfic, so be nice. I rather like it myself. Duh, the character's J.K. Rowling created are not mine, but all other characters are mine, so ha! And if you have an issue with Oliver Wood and Cho Chang getting married and having kids, then... well, I don't know. If you feel the need to rant, I really don't care. I just thought I would stick two random, quidditch-loving people together. So yeh. COMPLETE

Sneak Preview: “We’re living in a lighthouse.”... "Congratulations! You have been accepted in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." ... “Oh, I’m just wallowing in self-pity, being a super-angsty teenager, trying to figure out how to persuade you to let me pierce my naval, and contemplating going on a crash diet.”... "The day I lose my pride over a man, pigs will fly without magic." ... "Professor Longbottom... it bit me!" ... "See the pyramids around the Nile / Watch the sunrise from a tropic isle / Just remember darling all the while / You belong to me."

Platforms: This story will be the sequel to "The Reign of Kellyn Wood"... if I ever get around to writing it. Currently, my pet project is "On the Other Side", so I don't think I can focus on this sequel until OTOS is done. DISCONTINUED

Blame the Squirrel: This is a Chronicles of Narnia fanfic, set after the second departure of the Pevensies. It has been two years since Caspian has been crowned, and things are going smoothly until American-born Oxford student Astra Gorlois unexpectedly stumbles into the Cair Paraval court. Bestowed with a mission by Aslan, Astra opens Caspian's eyes to the world in which he lives in. Filled with humor, romance, and chaos, this story chronicles King Caspian's life as a man and the broadening of his vocabulary. This is obviously my first Narnia fanfic, and I am mostly sticking to what is in the books (versus the movies) with a few exceptions noted in the author's note. I do not own any of C.S. Lewis' characters. COMPLETE

Sneak Preview: "First, you take my bagel. And now, you havemy arrow. This. Is. WAR!" ... "So this is what it must feel like to be on LSD... woah." ... "But then eventually we got P.O.ed about taxation without representation, I mean, I don’t blame them, it kind of sucks, so we were all like, ‘Okee dokee, we would like independence por favor,’"... “Since when do kings take orders from oversized kitties?” ... "You will make him into a man." "You mean I have to do...?" "No! Please keep your mind out of the gutter and on the sidewalk." ... "You need to get out more often." ... "Caspian. Have you ever gotten so piss drunk that you have no memory of the night and you wake up the next morning puking your guts and have a hangover all day? Well, we should do that!!"

On the Other Side: A Harry Potter fiction to try to make sense how Draco Malfoy ended up marrying the younger Greengrass girl (Astoria). I have recently found the Slytherins extremely interesting because their characters are so blatantly faulted, but yet they are complex and still very human. Writing this has been a challenge for me because they are all very astute characters, have dark pasts, and are emotionally distant, making it difficult to make them likeable in any way. I'm just trying to make sense of them, so it's an exercise in characterization, I suppose. The story begins in Draco's seventh year and ends a few years after the war, but it does jump time for the sake of my sanity. This is my second HP fanfic, but my first Draco/Astoria. I hope you all like it!

Sneak Preview: “It is too late. Astoria Greengrass, you’re in." Fucking hell. Was Theodore Nott smoking some mushroom from the greenhouse or was he simply out of his mind? Either way, he was going to get them all killed by bringing in some stupid, scrawny fifth year with no particular assets (or ass) other than her abilities to stimulate irksome conversation, nose her way into others’ business, and perform a decent memory charm. DISCONTINUED :(


MY THEORIES

Constructive critisism is welcome. But if you feel the need to flame me, I'll manage and try to make some changes. Buuuut, constructive criticism is much more useful than a flame. If you want to rant about how my work "sucks", go ahead but know that I will not think very kindly of you. I just might call you a poo head, or something vulgar like that. (gives a nerdy smile) But I love reviews and encouragement!

I try to responds to most of my reviews. It is kind of fun and quite nice, I think. And so many of you are terribly funny, so I have to resond with laughter!
