Nerissa McCormick, at your service! *bows*

Northern-Irish • 22-year-old • aro-ace • obsessed with history

I'm one of the least organised writers ever (when I start a chapter I rarely know how it'll end). I have a probably unhealthy fascination with fairy-tales, death, and (to quote Lore) the darker side of history. I never think anything I write is any good once I finish writing it. At any one time I have at least a dozen different story ideas cluttering up my head. I'm very good at procrastinating.

I'm on Wattpad, Critique Circle and Movellas under the same or nearly the same username. I've a Fanfiction dot Net account, but life and a lack of inspiration mean I haven't used it for about two years. On Archive of Our Own I go by certain_as_the_sun.

You can also find me on Tumblr at talesofsorrowandofruin[dot]tumblr[dot]com, and on Blogspot at a-sequence-of-continuous-delights[dot]blogspot[dot]com. My Tumblr is where I post or reblog anything I'm interested in, from writing tips to Lord of the Rings GIFs, and on Blogspot I review books and period dramas.

Learning languages is one of my favourite things. Currently, I speak basic German (the language itself is pretty easy to learn, but knowing when to use "der", "die" or "das" is torture), even more basic Japanese (why do kanji have multiple readings? WHY?), and a few sentences of French. Maybe someday I'll become fluent in another language. Maybe.


Favourite Books: Watership Down, Pride and Prejudice, Bleak House, The Silmarillion, The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, Howl's Moving Castle, Charlotte's Web, Alice in Wonderland, Anne of Green Gables, Ivanhoe, The Prisoner of Zenda & Rupert of Hentzau, Emily of New Moon


Obsessed with musicals (I have The Sound of Music and Les Misérables memorised).

Favourites, in no particular order:

Sound of Music, Les Mis, Singin' in the Rain, Phantom of the Opera (but don't ever mention the film), anything by Disney (though Beauty and the Beast -- the original, not the remake -- is my absolute favourite), Elisabeth (why is there no English production? Why?), West Side Story, Anastasia (both film and theatre versions, with a slight preference for the vaguely-more-realistic theatre version), Roméo et Juliette (the staging and costumes are almost always weird, but the story and music are great), Sweeney Todd (both stage and film versions), Phantom (the Yeston/Kopit musical, which I actually like better than the Andrew Lloyd Webber one), and anything and everything Takarazuka.


Favourite Films/TV Series:

Star Wars (but not the prequels!), Lord of the Rings, Prince of Egypt, Chronicles of Narnia (impatiently waiting for the next film), Pride and Prejudice (1995, not 2005), North and South, Bleak House, Little Dorrit, How to Train Your Dragon, Rise of the Guardians, Cranford, Wives and Daughters, Jurassic Park/Jurassic World, The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), The Untamed (2019)...

If it's a period drama, there's a good chance I'll either have watched it or mean to watch it. Especially if it's adapted from a Dickens novel. Same goes for C-dramas, K-dramas and J-dramas with fantasy or historical settings.


Most of my short stories are stand-alone one-shots, with two exceptions. (Tales of Ash is vaguely set in the same universe as Left Unsaid, but it doesn't involve any of the same characters.)

Will Torchthwaite 'verse

The (mis)adventures of a young witch. Currently has three stories:

How Not to Mend A Broom
How Not to Cope With Visitors
How Not to Deal With Goblins

Old Friends 'verse:

Short stories about personifications of towns. Currently has two stories:

Old Friends
Thirty-One


My multi-chapter stories:

Death and the Emperor: Science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, a bit of romance, and goodness knows how many other genres. Completed. It started out based on Alice in Wonderland with a bit of inspiration from Hades and Persephone, then some Elisabeth and Narnia influences crept in.

Has eight(!) side-stories/bonus chapters uploaded separately:

The Undiscovered Country
Follow the Ashes
Lantern in the Night
Danse Macabre
Starless Night
The Midnight Visitor
A Deal With Death
The Course of True Love

The Brave Tin Soldiers Fall: Sequel to Death and the Emperor. The first two books are completed and uploaded. I wrote half of book three for July Camp NaNo and the other half in August. Updates every Monday and Thursday.

Age So Crammed With Madness: No idea what genre this is, but it's set in a steampunk alternate universe. Camp NaNo project for April '18. Turned out to be a spectacular failure, but I've posted all the chapters I finished. Currently on hiatus.

In a Weary World: Retelling of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. Completed. It's frankly a mess, but hopefully posting it here will motivate me to edit it. Eventually.

Don't Open Till Morning and Other Stories: A collection of short stories I wrote for the October Spooky Writing Challenge (OSWC2018) on Tumblr. Completed.

A Girl, a Murder, and Twelve Dreadful Children: Weird mixture of horror, murder mystery, and occasional comedy. Crossover with the Old Friends 'verse. Completed because I got tired of writing it.

The Haunted House: A collection of short stories I wrote for OSWC2019 on Tumblr. Completed.

Covered Mirrors Mixture of horror, historical, mystery, and who knows what else. A Subtle Web is a sort of early draft of this WIP. Camp NaNo project for July '19. Completed because I got tired writing it. The chapters I finished are currently being posted.

The Power and the Glory: My Camp NaNo April '20 project. Steampunk, fantasy, some science fiction... basically I threw together all the things I like reading about, and I'm pretending the result is coherent. Book 1 is finished and uploaded. Book two will be my NaNo project this year.

Has a side-story/bonus chapter uploaded separately:

Proof Positive

Tainted and Other Stories: A collection of short stories I'm writing for OSWC2020 on Tumblr. In progress, updates every day (hopefully).


All my stories are first drafts, so please excuse any plot holes, mistakes and the general mess that first drafts tend to be.

That's all I can think of at the minute :)
