Hey everybody, welcome to my author page! If you'd like to read any of my fanfiction, please go to www.fanfiction.net/~dakota423 to see my takes on universes like Peter Pan, Newsies, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles! Also, take note of the story statuses... status... statusi? Oi, anyway, the thing at the bottom of my bio...

My Bio:

Name: Dakota
Age: 20
Live: St. Louis, Missouri

A few other things about myself: I speak sarcasm like a second language. You'll find that the characters in my stories do as well. Deal with it. I have a muse that like to come and go as he pleases. Lets just say I don't take to kindly to him barging in and then running off.

My Style:

My writing tends to be very dialogue-oriented. I think that for me, you can say so much more with, well, saying things. This doesn't mean that my fics are nothing but people talking; I have whole pages where the characters interact but hardly say two words to each other. My point is that the things characters say are so important to how the reader views them. No one wants to read about a guy who never says anything worth mention. Good dialogue makes things so much easier. But when people aren't talking they're thinking. My stories are very character-driven. I never come up with a plot first; always the characters. My stories tend to be narrated by conciousness: I follow their thought processes, not my own. It normally leads to an interesting ride.

Fic Status:

Fallen: On my to do list...

Bohemia, Bohemia: Complete!! Though I'm in the process of updating it to my current writing ability.

Prince of Cats: Hiatus. I lost my book o' plot...

Book One of the Faerysworn Trilogy. Kerri Woods is your average sixteen year old... right? A trip to Ireland proves that mindset wrong when a run in with a seemingly average cat turns her life upside down. Not your runofthemill faery tale. R&R!
