ABOUT ME:

Hi! I'm Kelly, a senior English and Spanish double-major at a small liberal arts school in Chicagoland. At college, I'm involved in a variety of different activities: Concert Choir, my school's literary magazine, and Sigma Tau Delta, the international Greek honor society. I also work in my college's writing center as a peer tutor, assisting others with their writing. It's one of the most rewarding jobs, and it's pushed me to consider education as a post-grad career choice.

I've been very blessed while I've been in college; I've been allowed to pursue my craft, and I've had some amazing opportunities. This coming year, I'll be working on my senior thesis, an original dystopian novel. I have the plot outlined, but I'm really nervous about being able to complete it before the year is up. I know it's possible, because I've seen so many writers here on FF.net accomplish just that, but I never have. It will certainly be a challenge. Also, I was recently published for the first time; a couple of my prose poems appeared in a national undergraduate literary magazine. Needless to say, I was stoked.


MY ATTITUDE TOWARD FAN FICTION:

I'm a bit of a literary snob... I really dislike bad writing. There is so much good writing out in the universe that it makes sense to read that instead of the garbage that gets published when it shouldn't (uh, hello, Snooki is NOT a real author). Even though fan fiction is a looked-down-upon genre, I try to do all that I can to make it as legitimate as possible. I do research (to an extent) to make sure that my story complies with canon, unless its AU-ness is paramount to the story; I revise my chapters at least a bit before I post them, and I do all that I can to make sure that the story is not only engaging and Mary Sue-less, but well-edited. I'm not perfect, but I try my best, and I do hold myself and my stories to a very high standard.

I just wish the same for my fellow writers. I know we all come to this site with varying ages and levels of experience, but I have seen some atrocious writing out there, and I wish that instead of only giving it praise, more readers and writers would critique other authors and give them valuable feedback. The quality of the writing on this site will NOT improve unless we make it a priority to help the writers improve.

AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, EVERYONE, IF YOU DON'T KNOW GRAMMAR AND MECHANICS VERY WELL, FIND A BETA READER THAT DOES! I cannot tell you how many times I have given up on a story simply because the grammar was sub-par. The story plot was interesting, but I couldn't bring myself to finish it.


MY STORIES:

Hermione and the Magic Mirror (WIP - 80% complete)

Rating: T Word Count: 50,000 Genre: Romance/Drama Primary Ships: Hermione/Adam, Belle/Draco

A Beauty and the Beast and Harry Potter novel-length crossover. When Hermione finds a magic mirror that leads to 18th century France, she finds herself among brutes, talking candelabras, and uptight clocks. After being discovered as a witch, Hermione is separated from Maurice and flees to a castle where light never shines. With sinister plots underway, Hermione must find Belle's father and reverse the castle's enchantment before all is too late. Meanwhile, Belle, in modern-day Wizarding England, encounters Floo powder, an irascible red-head and a haughty blonde, and both girls must discover, who could ever learn to love a beast?

The Lonely Road of a Fisher's Wife (WIP - 30% complete)
Rating: T Word Count: 5,380 Genre: Drama/Fantasy

Four years ago, when Krista married Matthew, she never dreamed she'd be penniless and living in her sister's apartment. Or that Matthew would be stupid enough to buy a cottage on the coast of Scotland. A modern and elongated re-telling of the Grimm Brothers' fairy tale "The Fisherman and His Wife." ON HIATUS.

A Little Late-Night Rebellion (COMPLETE)

Rating: T Word Count: 2,500 Genre: Romance/Humor Primary Ship: Jane/Grayson

A Drop Dead Diva one-shot. While working late one night at Harrison & Parker, Jane and Grayson decide to cause a little mayhem. Between playing a strip game in Parker's office, eating Chinese while barefoot, and stealing Kim's old rolling chair, working at a law firm has never been so fun.


FUTURE STORIES:

A Courtly Romance: Sequel to Hermione Granger and the Magic Mirror (WIP - 10% complete)

Rating: T Genre: Drama/Fantasy/Romance

When Isabelle's father, King Adam, decides that she must marry a prince that she doesn't know, she and her mother conspire to send her through a mirror into modern-day Wizarding England. I'm working on the sequel even though I haven't finished the original. Naturally.

Harry Potter and The Little Mermaid Crossover (NOT STARTED)

Rating: ??? Genre: ???

So far on my profile poll, people have voted that I should do a Harry Potter and The Little Mermaid crossover. I think this would be an interesting challenge since the mermaids in Rowling's world are far different from those in either Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale or in the Disney film. After I finish A Courtly Romance, I'll begin to develop a concept for this. I'm open to suggestions, so if you have ideas, please let me know!
