I reject your reality and substitute my own

Alright, so I had another account on here but I have since deleted it for various reasons. Not liking the stories I had posted being a major reason. Writer's block killing the only real story I had being another. So this isn't by any means my first account, I've been writing on FictionPress for about 6 and a half years now and writing in general for nearly ten years. (Though unfortunately, the internet is the only place I've been published)


About me:

I'm a 21 year old college student who loves to write. I'm studying criminal psychology in school--about to have my AA--and unfortunately college does take away a lot of my writing time.

I'm obsessed with Crime Shows, Science Fiction, Supernatural, mysteries and horror stories. I refuse to watch gory movies because Saw makes no sense to me, especially after 7 movies and also because I find those moves less scary, more disgusting. Psychological and paranormal scary movies are much better in my humble opinion.

And yes, my pen name IS a Doctor Who reference. If you don't know what it's a reference to then I shall not explain it.

Anyway, I love writing and making up my own little worlds and I'm fascinated by the way the human mind works. It's probably why I love Criminal Minds above all other crime/dramas. Criminal Minds goes into how the UnSubs think and why they committed the crimes and did the things that they did. Also, Criminal Minds is just awesome. Seriously.

I detest mushy romance stories. I hate Mary-Sues and I believe that every human being is flawed and I don't believe in love at first sight. Which should tell you right there what my opinion on Twilight is. (I've read all four books and suffered through the first two movies, they're trivial, pointless, plot-less drivel and that's all I can say).

I have a weird thing for superheroes. Batman, Iron Man, Spiderman. Any superhero except Super Man. Super Man can rot. I hate him in an irrational and personal sort of way that I cannot explain.

I'm technically an adult, but I still love cartoons and some of my favorite shows are Disney shows... A.N.T. Farm, So Random!, Wizards of Waverly Place, Phineas and Ferb, etc. I love iCarly and Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom and Iron Man: Armored Adventures. I used to live on Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon. Obviously, I wasn't a "typical" little girl.

Harry Potter is my longest obsession/addiction/love. Half of my life has been devoted to Harry Potter. Since I was 10 I've been reading the books and watching the movies. I've grown up with Harry Potter and nothing anyone can ever say will ever change my mind or make me dislike it. JK Rowling is a genius, a brilliant writer and one of the brightest minds of this generation. I love her for writing Harry Potter and know that if you insult it I will murder you. Violently.


My writing:

I write a lot of diverse stuff. At least I try to anyway. I love Science Fiction, Supernatural, Horror, Thriller, Mystery, Crime/Drama... Anything except romance. And I HAVE written Romance, just not what I'd consider "good" romance. I'm still iffy on my ability to write honest romance.

However, I'm a huge slash fangirl and have written quite a lot of it.

Lately most of my writing is for FanFiction, however and it's tough work getting Lola to let me focus on anything else (she's currently obsessed with Sherlock). But I have been and always will write my own original stuff as well, so just be patient with me if updating my stories seems to be taking a while. That's Lola trying to get me to write more fanfiction.

I'm a sucker for happy endings, but also a realist and know that not everyone can always live and sometimes, the girl doesn't get the guy. Sometimes the guy's a dick. So I TRY very hard to keep my stories grounded in reality (yes, even stories about ghosts and aliens and wizards) as much as possible. I don't want people's emotional reactions to come across as ridiculous unless that character would have honestly reacted that way.

In all honesty, it's easier to keep a fanfiction character in character than it is my own characters sometimes. I let Lola and my characters write the story, I just listen to the voices tell me what to type next. So sometimes, I struggle over how a specific character will react to something. It's weird, but that's just me. Lola is secretive, she doesn't like to tell me everything. Sometimes I know what's coming in the end, sometimes I'm just following along until the end smacks me in the face.

I've grown quite a lot as a writer thanks to FanFiction - I shudder just thinking about some of the crap I've penned in the past. My only real defense is that I was young and stupid. I'm still young and still pretty stupid sometimes, but much smarter and hopefully a much better writer than when I was 10.

So I hope you enjoy my stories and please, please review if you read them. I am open to any kind of criticism as long as it's honest. Don't be rude about it, but don't hold back in fear of hurting my feelings. I want to know what you think. If the dialogue was stiff, if the plot is silly, it there's a plot hole, if I made a mistake... do me a favor--TELL ME. I want to be a writer, I take my writing seriously. So tell me what you liked, what you didn't like. Rip the story to pieces if you must, just be honest.


Other sites:

I've got a page on Facebook with my best friend, Beth. I post information about coming stories and ideas on there and we talk about random things like TV shows and actors and movies. If you're interested:

Like us if you want ;)

And I (obviously) have a fanfiction. Currently there are 80 stories ranging from Criminal Minds, to Being Human to Doctor Who, to Sherlock and crossovers as well. I'd love for you to check them out, they're my babies (and if you do, please don't forget to review! Anonymous reviewing is enabled here and on FF if you don't have an account!):

And also have an A03 account where I post my more "explicit" material (mostly a lot of Hannibal fic):

My friend Laura, who is both on this site and on FanFiction as SlasherrGirl also has a Tumblr blog called Ask the Geniuses that includes Sherlock, The Doctor, Reid, Jane and Brennan (Sherlock, Doctor Who, Criminal Minds, Mentalist and Bones respectively) on the TARDIS (Sherlock, Reid, Jane and Brennan are the Doctor's new companions). It's really interesting and funny and seriously amazing:

Feel free to PM me and ask questions or give me advice (or ask for advice if you think I can help). I'm always happy to help if I can and always open to suggestions and ideas as well.

(Do me a favor though and don't ask to do collaborations unless I know you VERY well, and probably not even then. I'd rather only do those on FanFiction and, again, with people I know well. I've had some people ask me to collaborate with them and I didn't even know them at all! Please do not do that, my answer will be a polite no.)


Endings are hard. Any chapped-ass monkey with a keyboard can poop out a beginning, but endings are impossible. You try to tie up every loose end, but you never can. The fans are always gonna bitch. There's always gonna be holes. And since it's the ending, it's all supposed to add up to something. I'm telling you, they're a raging pain in the ass.
