Poll: I want to make revisions to 'To Belong to a Beast.' This involves deleting chapters 1-3 and most of chapter 8, and renaming the story. How best can I do that without creating confusion? Vote Now!
Author has written 1 story for Romance.
I like fantasy, I like romance, and I like men--all of which you can probably tell solely from my list of Favorite Stories. I am a sucker for character depth and complexity. Once I get addicted to a story, my reading goes into hyperspeed, so I tend to read long stories that are already completed and finish them in one or two sittings.
"Impossible" romances are a fascination of mine. This extends both to stories I read and stories I write. Reading and writing are very liberating experiences for me, and as such I find I can read and write about things I may never experience or condone in person. Maybe that sounds like a conflict of interest to you. To me, it's a learning experience.
Once upon a time, I had several authors on my Favorites list. Now I have one. Why? Because plagiarizers drove them all away. I'm still grieving this. It's frustrating to see my favorites leave, but I can't blame them; I'm sure I would do the same in their position.
Beauty and the Beast Vol. I: To Belong to a Beast
This is the first volume of my personal rendition of Beauty and the Beast. I know there are many versions out there, although admittedly, I was not so aware of that fact when I began writing this story. If you have read any of those versions, you will realize that most are spectacularly different from each other. Hopefully, this story will be in a category all its own.
The Prologue is very different from the rest of the story. The story is written in first person past tense, as a recollection made by the two main characters. The alternating perspective allows you to witness events from two different viewpoints and two very different sets of feelings. The adventure is mostly psychological and emotional, because I want to put you in the characters' heads. The story starts out in childhood, but that only spans the first three chapters. If you get annoyed with childhood, skip to Chapter 4; I'll probably end up cutting the previous chapters anyway, and maybe referencing them through flashbacks.
Beauty and the Beast is, first and foremost, a Romance. It is Fantasy because it takes place in an alternate universe with magic and fantastic creatures, though I hope the magic element is subtle enough to refrain from taking over the story. The Angst comes from the psychological struggles.
Heard of the phrase "Mind the Gap"? Well, mind the rating. "M" does not stand for "Mild," and the determination to rate the story as Mature was not a debate. There are scenes that are intended to make you gasp or squirm. (Even I, the author, want to cover my eyes on some parts!) There will be heavy psychological issues, violence, and sex. If you don't see that happening now, you may feel differently later.
I have a newwhere I will be posting news about my story. Please check it out! I think you will find the "Reference" section useful, at least.
This site is my main haunt, but you can also look me up as Seriah Black Sheep on FanFiction.net or Seriah Black on . I enjoy reading fanfiction, though it is unlikely I will write any; I have too many original characters running around in my head.
If you have any suggestions or questions about my story, you're welcome to leave a review! :)
