I recently joined the Twilighted on September 7, 2008 and began immediately on posting stories already written and published on other fanfiction sites.
I am no newbie at fanfiction. I have been writing fanfiction since 2003, first for Lord of the Rings then for Harry Potter and finally Twilight.
You may recognize my penname from Mugglenet Fan Fiction, a site which uses the same format and which I am currently a moderator at (for more than 3 years.
About life on the computer:
I don't use the computer for much else other than reading, writing, chatting, Facebooking, making banners, and betaing. However, I am staff at a wonderful site called Operation Sudan which advocates awareness and action regarding the Darfur genocide. Again, my writing time is divided between Twilight and Harry Potter. I pretty much live at the MuggleNet Fan Fiction beta forums. Here are the accounts, the ONLY accounts, I have regarding the fandoms:
MNFF / HPFF / FF.net / TA / MNFFBF / LJ
I also have a Facebook account. Ask and ye shall receive.
About life off the computer:
I spend most of my time reading, watching TV, dancing, writing, and studying. My aspirations are not in the writing field so I'm focusing mainly on the last activity. However, I do know when to relax, and writing is just a hobby. I also spend time attending seminars regarding the situation in Darfur to better understand what exactly is going on, though I don't follow many current events as closely.
About the Stories:
The Afterlife series: Afterlife is a series that features stories about each Cullen family member's transformation. I do have most of them written and am just waiting for them to be validated.
Angel: Angel's plotline was born before Amen's but never wrote it down until after Amen. Carlisle's rescuing of Edward and all the other vampires reminds me of an angel snatching their lives from Death's grasp.
In the works:
Untitled: No, really, it is untitled for now. Rosalie's transformation incorporating Eclipse spoilers.
Another untitled: Jacob finally imprints on someone (now AU)
Lost: Jacob and Bella's developing relationship during New Moon from Jacob's point of view.
Alice and Jasper's first meeting.
About my banners
Above banner by Kaiwynn as an award :) Thanks!
I make my own banners. They're always 300x100 and feature the theme of the story. It may take as little as 5 minutes and as long as an hour for me to make one.
I DO take banner requests and I DO make banners for others. My payment requirement is a review of substance on a story of mine, and I request that credit be given.
Currently, I am accepting further banner requests. I have some requests still standing whose emails I have long lost. If you are one of the authors whom I have promised a banner for, please contact me again.
review of substance (n): A review that contains something meaningful and helpful that indicates that you had indeed read the story.
Not a review of substance: "Wow that was good!" Thank you, but I'd like a bit more than that. I'm not being picky, but I'd rather you say something that you liked or didn't like about the story.
A review of substance: "It was a good story, but I think you could've worked a bit more on Jasper's character. He didn't seem to react the way I thought he would." Thanks, now I know exactly what to improve on.
A review of substance: "That was a good story! I really liked how you used descriptions to help me paint a picture in my mind!" Thanks, now I know exactly what people like from me.
You can contact me either on AIM, LJ, or email (use the contact button) with a request. I'll find a way to get back to you, and I will ask for pertinent details.
About beta work
I usually don't look for betas when I write, mostly because it takes a long time to find a beta I'm comfortable with and because I know I can get by without one. I beta my own work by finishing a story, leaving it on my computer, then coming back a day later to reread.
I cannot and will not read crack fics.
I have betaed one story here, I believe. Currently, I am available for betaing short one-shots.
