Some Excerpts

My first fanfiction was written by request from a friend on COS forums. We were discussing possible ways for Ron and Hermione to get together and brainstormed a few scenes from Bill and Fleur's wedding. He liked the example that I came up with and asked me to write it out into a complete story. That was Guiding Fate and is posted on The Quidditch Pitch.
Ron Weasley is my favorite - hands down. I love the fact that he is just so normal. He could be any average teenage boy you would meet in real life. I also love his sense of humor and I think it is really sweet how he tries to take care of Hermione and get her to eat right and get enough sleep, as well as encouraging her to relax and not work too hard. And, being a red-head, I really like that he has red hair!
The story that was the most fun was Death Eater Strategy Meeting. I wrote that for the COS Writing Contest - that was the theme for that week - and I got an idea of how funny it would be if Snape were trying to convince Voldemort to go after Harry instead of Neville because of his rivalry with James. The story that was the most challenging - and my favorite among the stories that I've written - is The Heart Has Its Own Reasons. I wrote this for the Ron/Hermione Quotefic Challenge on Checkmated. I was assigned a quote at random and had no idea what it was going to be until they gave it to me. It was challenging because I had to work the quote into the story. It's my favorite because it just came out so well. I think it is one of the best things I've written so far.
I get ideas all the time from chatting on COS forums and trying to figure out what will happen next in the books - or what happened during a "missing moment". The COS Writing contest has been good - there is a different theme each week and I have gotten ideas from there as well. I've also gotten ideas and inspiration from other stories and books - I see a certain element of the story that I like and I get an idea of something different to do with it.
