Author has written 6 stories for Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who.

One of those pesky teenagers. Perky and depressed by turns. But then, who isn't? I just don't let it go to my head.

If I might take a moment out for a quick physiological note, sugar actually does not give as great a physical buzz as people formerly believed. It does indeed boost energy levels, but not for any lasting period of time and certainly never to the great extreme that some of the more...enthusiastic authors on seem to advocate. Therefore, I will not accept "WHEE SUGAR!" as an excuse for bad writing. Actually, I don't accept any excuse for bad writing, but the "I'M SO HYPER LOLZ!" type really trips my trigger.

I also have an account by the same penname at fictionpress.com. Check it out, stroke my ego; it kinda purrs if you do it right: www.fictionpress.com/~stormkarstark

Bit of a penchant for Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. Yes, I know typical teen, yadda yadda yadda...but really, I'm not. Why, you ask? Well, for one thing, I am the nitpickiest grammarian imaginable. For another, I can use spell check, which is such a foreign concept these days. If you're searching for a beta, let me know and I'll give it a shot. For me, good grammar and spelling = pride in your work. And if you're not proud of your work, why bother posting it in the first place? Oh, and I've also read the books; it floors me that people can't even do that before considering themselves "fans". Movie =/= canon!

Age: 18. I feel ancient, considering all the supposed thirteen-year-olds running around unchecked on this site. College sophomore, come August. High school angst? Once you get on the other side, it's laughable. Don't come to me with your anti-establishment 'tude, kiddies; I'll laugh you out of town.

That's all I have to say about that.

An Outsider's View reviews
Muggle-born Ryan Laptiske isn't a documented part of the HP series, but she's always been there. This is her take on witches, Hogwarts, and a famous wizard. See the HP series through the eyes of a stranger...

Dumbledore's Grid reviews
Dumbledore's fight against Voldemort reaches far beyond just the UK. What happens when Jordan's father leaves Texas to find answers? Answer to a fic challenge; turned out better than expected. Transfer student fic, but not the normal special!powerful!OC.

Mortal Guy reviews
A parody to Avril Levine's "Skater Boy", I give you..."Mortal Guy". I saw someone do this, but they did a bad job, so I thought, Hey, I can do better than that...whether I did or not is up to you.

Companion to "An Outsider's View"; just to drive home the fact that I have no life outside of writing and computer, here's the research I conducted for my character's names in my fanfiction.
