Complete? yes

Summary: Clary, Jace, Alec, Isabelle and Simon are out hunting demons when one of them gets hurt while fighting. Will they be able to help who got hurt? Or will it be too late? One-Shot! (Rated M just because I’m paranoid!)

My oh-so-humble thoughts
This is just a simple little one shot that totally kinda ripped my heart out. It’s no secret that I have anxiety-I’ve been pretty open about that. And all my anxiety (lately) centers around something happening to Mr. Kelpie or the kidlets. Seriously I’m tearing up just thinking about it.

So putting myself in Clary’s shoes in this fic was absolutely gut wrenching. I can feel the anguish and heartache and uncertainty. And it’s horrible. But extremely compelling, which is why you’re getting a spotlight on it. :)

You should head on over and check it out-she’s got a couple more fics that I may delve into when I recover. Seriously, like no joke. But that’s a good thing!!! So go and don’t have a heart attack cause I did warn you. Thanks lovelies!

Summary: What would the world be like if Valentine never interfered in Jace Herondale’s life. Instead, after the Uprising, he ran away with his only daughter Clarissa Morgenstern. Leaving a distressed Jocelyn to believe both are dead. AU/OOC Dark!Clary / Clace NOW COMPLETE!

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay so. This sorry-gah! So good. I read it awhile ago and then she finished it without me knowing (??? Come on ff.net!!!) So I just recently reread it. And yeah-still awesome. :)

This whole reimagined TMI story is pretty original in my opinion. And it’s very true to character, or at least the characters that I’m familiar with. Remember, I haven’t finished the source books. (Oops) But yeah, this is a completely new and extremely unique perspective.

I especially love Clary’s…story, I guess you could say. I can totally feel where she’s coming from. And the twist, holy crap! I love that she included Max and she even have Jace a sibling. Both of the littles (who aren’t actually that little…13 I think) are just awesome.

So it worth a read and she definitive needs some reviews, ie love cause she wrote a freaking awesome food that totally deserves some attention. :) so happy reading lovelies!!

Summary: After a personal tragedy, Clary Garroway moves in with her brother, Jon to start a new life when she meets the cocky next door neighbor. Will he be what she needs to move on, or is he just a player that will mess with her already fragile heart? ALL CHARACTERS BELONG TO CASSANDRA CLARE! Characters are OOC

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay, so I’m slacking on the TMI stuff. Like seriously. And I’m only about halfway through this story. But so far it’s pretty damn awesome.

Like I said, I’m slacking-so I’m only on like chapter 16 (out of 34 I believe) as I write this. I will probably finish tonight if I don’t pass out. But so far I’m loving it. It’s got drama and angst, but it’s not heavy. And the angst isn’t overpowering and it’s almost like…how can I put this…side angst. Like it’s there, but it’s not…ugh. I can’t describe it. It’s extremely well done though.

The characters are OOC, but I don’t find it off putting like with some fics. It’s still believable to me, ya know? I can’t wait to finish this fic. *squeal* So how bout you hop on over and read it with me and leave her some love. Yeah, that’s a great idea! :)

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay so. I found this lovely chick a while back and I’m pretty sure I was about to start reading a fic of hers when my lovely kidlets hid my other phone. But I just found her again and duuuuuuude!!

I love this fic. It’s such an abrupt start, but completely compelling. I’m not even done with what’s published yet (24 ish chapters as of when I’m writing this).

It’s a war story, but not modern war-like knights and kingdoms and all that loveliness kinda war. And-see I’m trying not to give to much away-the story behind everything is just awesome. The way she’s woven flashbacks into the story, revealing little bits and peices is masterful. She doesn’t go too slow and she doesn’t rush-it’s juuuuuuuuust right. *smirk*

There are a few grammatical and word choice oddities (NOT errors!!!), but she’s French. My first thought was that she wasn’t American and that was totally right. *shrug* I just know some of your are slightly fanatical about grammar so I wanted to warn you. :P

It’s an awesome story that really deserves your attention and I think you should go read. Now. :) Thanks lovelies!

Author Spotlight: Sophie733

So, I was scrolling through random TMI searches one day on ff.net and I stumbled across this gem of an author. I read her fic Be My Escape and fell in love with how she wrote the characters. Seriously, she is pretty damn awesome. So, of course, I had to spotlight her for you lovelies.

She’s also got a Harry Potter fic published, which I haven’t read but I may be tempted by the summary. So yeah, let’s hear from her. :)

 

Let’s start with an introduction. I’m Kelly, or as more people know me, Kelpie.
And you are?
Sophie733

So, tell me a little about yourself.
I have love writing since I was a kid and always wanted to be an author, that’s the one dream that never changed.  I’m married to Vladric733 and if it’s a fandom he reads, he’ll sometimes beta for me.  He’s the one who got me reading fan fics so I took his ‘last name’ when making my ID.

What do you do with yourself when you’re not writing?
Thinking about writing mostly.  I have a full time job as well as two dogs and two bunnies.  I mainly spend time with them when I’m not writing or at work.  I also do a lot of reading.

What are some things you never leave home without?
My cell phone, that’s about it.  If I’m driving I have my purse with my wallet and a notebook.  But for the most part I can read and make notes on my phone so it’s easiest.

What are some of your favorite books?
Harry Potter, Mortal Instruments, Chronicles of Narnia and a lot more

Anna of Byzantium will always have a place in my heart because it was the book that got me hooked on reading again.  I was a slow reader and as such it took a lot of dedication to a book to keep with it.  That historical fiction hooked me and I just kept reading after that.

Favorite TV shows and movies?
Doctor Who (though I only just got into it and am still in the early seasons on Netflix), NCIS, The Blacklist, Arrow, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood (though I haven’t finished that yet either)

If you were stranded on a deserted island and had 3 famous people with you, who would you choose and why?
Famous people?  Hmm, I don’t really know that many real names.  Can I trade two of them to have my husband?  He’s really handy and could make sure we all survive, plus he could cook anything.  Then maybe Patrick Stewart?  (Sorry, is that too mushy?  He really is the best in a tight situation.)

What is 1 place you’d love to visit?
Italy

Do you have any pet peeves?
Sure…Being mean to people, not being able to own up to your mistakes, driving like an idiot

What are some of your favorite foods? How ‘bout comfort foods?
Sushi, most italian food, steak and anything that’s made from potatoes.  Comfort foods, well if I’m not feeling well I revert back to peanut butter and jelly on toasted bread.  My mom would always make that when I was a kid.

What’s your favorite scent-one that says “home” to you?
I have no idea…I don’t really pay attention

What kind of music do you like? Any you absolutely can’t stand?
I like pretty much everything, pop to country to rap to classical.  There isn’t really any kind of music I can’t stand, though there are certain songs I don’t care for.  I’m not the biggest person into screaming music, maybe because I like to know the words and I like melodies.

Tell me one random thing about yourself.
While I’ve always loved visiting the beach, I am scared of the ocean and won’t go out deeper than waist high.  I like to think I just have a healthy reverence for it’s massive power.

Just for some insight into you pick one. Feel free to tell why or not.
Chocolate or vanilla?  Vanilla (goes with anything)
Silver or gold? Silver
Apple or PC? PC
White wine or red wine? I don’t care for wine
Liquor or beer? Liquor, but I don’t drink anymore
Coffee or tea?  Coffee I guess, but I don’t drink that either, but I love the smell
Sleep in or get up early? Sleep in, but I usually end up getting early regardless of preference

Okay, now for the good stuff.
What are your preferred fandoms for writing/reading?
Harry Potter is a big one and I’ve gotten into Mortal Instruments in the last year.  I write in the fandoms I read.

What kind of environment do you write in?
Sometimes music, but usually just quiet…me and my laptop anywhere

Ever write in your PJs?
yep

How bout naked?
Isn’t that the same as PJ’s? JK yea

Where do you find inspiration for your stories? Do you pull your real life experiences into your writing?
Inspiration comes from everywhere.  Sometimes I’m reading a story and a thought comes in about the same fandom but a completely unrelated plot.  Or I’m staring off while I’m listening to music and my mind wanders into the field of ‘what if’s.’  I put in some life experiences sometimes, nothing is really sticking out in my mind right now, but it’s really about them, the characters.  I feel like they write the story, not me.

Do you write on a schedule?
Not really.  I try to write something everyday, but that doesn’t always happen.

Do you plan out your stories or just write whatever comes to you?
So I get a general idea, sometimes nothing more than a scenario or a scene.  I write a chapter or two to really get into the characters and then I sit down and write plot points I want to hit.  It helps me to know where I’m going, but even then, I let changes come as I write.

Do you have any writing rituals or superstitions?
None.  I’m the girl who opens umbrellas inside just say I don’t care about bad luck and I have broken at least two mirrors–though not on purpose.

Is one genre easier for you to write than another? Is there anything that you just aren’t that great at writing?
Fiction, I only really write fiction.  I dabble with writing non fiction about my own life, but I never share those.  They are more therapeutic than actually for others.  I like writing fantasy fiction, but any fiction works for me.  Non Fiction is just not as much fun for me.

What is the hardest part for you about writing fanfics?
Worrying that it will never reach readers or disappointing readers.

Is there a method for coming up with titles for your stories and/or chapters?
I try to think of a phrase that sums of the content.  Sometimes it’s something I hear or from a song (Ex: Be My Escape is the name of a Relient K song).  I also try for a bit of humor in them or a way in which the title of a chapter has a different meaning once the chapter is completed.

Which character do you identify with the most?
Usually the protagonist.  I write from a woman’s perspective because I find it hard knowing how a man thinks and I think it wouldn’t turn out right.  However, usually there is a piece of each of the main characters that I identify with in one way or another.

Which of your stories is your favorite to write and why? Which of your stories is your favorite concept wise?
I don’t know.  I am only writing my second fan fic.  In some ways I’m having more fun with this one, but that’s because it’s the idea that I’m thinking about all the time, while the other has already ended.  I tend not to stick with a concept that I don’t thoroughly enjoy.  And what I enjoy writing can change based on my mood.  Though I kind of have a rule not to take short cuts in my writing and that the characters don’t make stupid decisions just to move the plot along.

Do you talk to your family about your writing?
Yes I do.  I talk to my husband thoroughly and bounce ideas off of him.  Once, on a road trip to visit family, we spend hours going back and forth about a story and in the end it was way better.  I also talk to my parents and siblings about it because I just get so excited I can’t not talk about it.

What is your favorite book/episode in your preferred series?
Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (though I am still reading this series)

Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban

What is the best compliment you’ve ever received on your stories?
Someone was really excited that I actually had proper grammar.  Their excitement was so evident, I had to smile when I read it.  They went on to say that it just made the story that much more awesome.  Really, when you can tell that the person genuinely loves the story, it’s the best thing in the world.

How do you deal with the inevitable criticism?
If it’s constructive, then thank you.  That is just people trying to help and I do my best to improve.  If it’s mean, I try to ignore it.  I just itch to say something back, but I know that won’t help so I do my best to resist.

What is your favorite/least favorite part about your preferred fandoms?
Favorite: there are so many awesome stories out there, I just want to read all the time.  Least favorite: when stories never get finished (though I understand) and when people take short cuts in writing an otherwise amazing story

Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Do not give up, ever.  There was a time I walked away from writing because I felt I would never become a good writer.  It was like tearing a piece of my soul off and putting it in a box.  I couldn’t stay away, even if I was doomed to always be bad.  For me, success wasn’t the number of people who liked it or if I ever got published.  Success was finishing a story and loving writing it.  The other thing is read!  Be an avid reader of classic, of fan fic, of everything.  Great writers are always first great readers.

Have any recommendations?
Harry Potter: Harry Crow by robst; Static by galfoy; Blood Red by Fluticorns

Mortal Instruments: Crossed Swords by Daedalic; Snowed In by SephCurrentDaughterofPoseidon

Twilight: The Consequences by M. Michelon (as well as the rest of the Twilight they write)

Story Spotlight: Chasing the Sun

Title: Chasing the Sun

Fandom: The Mortal Instruments

AU/Canon/AH: AH
Complete? yes

Summary: AU/AH: After a brutal tour in Afghanistan turns his life upside down, Jace is forced to battle a new war. This time, one of his own. Fortunately, he’s not alone. Can new next-door neighbor Clary help heal a wounded soldier’s heart? Vulgar language and lots of lemonade.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
I’m so excited!!! I’ve been wanting to spotlight this since she began it-I loved her fic Ascension sooooo much and this one is no different. I’ve been trying to make sure to wait for fics to be at least 10 chapters before I spotlight them and this one is at 15 and it’s a go!!!

Okay, so my insane ramblings aside, I usually don’t make a point of reading war fics. They tend to bum me out. And this one…did, but not in the same way most do. This is the *after effects* of the war…which is a key thing nowadays that nobody wants to talk about.

She’s written this in an awesomely real way. I actually kinda hated the story at first-you’ll see why when you get into it-but the progression and evolution of the characters is handled in such an organic way—it’s amazing. Truly. All their flaws and mistakes somehow make them more likable, at least to me.

The embarrassment, shame, horror, fear, panic, happiness…every emotion she’s managed to capture in such a way that I *feel* them. I mean, that’s what stories are supposed to do-evoke emotion-but this is somehow a little more extreme than most. So it’s definitely worth the read-I usually click and read asap whenever I get an update email-and I sincerely hope you’ll head on over right now to read and leave her love. :)

Author Spotlight: Kodabear18

Hey lovelies! Another brand spanking new author spotlight for ya today! *I’m in a weird mood, ignore me* Except, don’t ignore me cause you really need to hear about this chick.

She’s so frickin awesome. I absolutely LOVE her story The Fallen and drop everything whenever I see an update. Seriously. It ridiculous. I nearly overheated in the sauna the other day when I couldn’t stop reading. :/ That.good. So yeah, I still have yet to read her other two stories because I have had endless amounts of crap to do, but they are on my list and I absolutely cannot wait! Just like I’ll bet you can’t wait for me to shut up.

*zips lips*

Let’s start with an introduction. I’m Kelly, or as more people know me, Kelpie.
And you are?
My real name is Bekah, but I go by Kodabear18 on Fanfiction.net.

So, tell me a little about yourself.
Well, I am in High-school. I have three dogs –one of which my pen-name comes from. And I like to think that I’m awesome! (But my family may say otherwise…)

What do you do with yourself when you’re not writing?
I read most of my free-time –when I’m not writing, but I also like to sketch and paint with acrylics sometimes. :D

What are some things you never leave home without?
Whatever book I am currently reading, along with my IPhone (whom I have taken to naming Benny).

What are some of your favorite books?
Anything written by Cassandra Clare, Lord of the Rings, The entire LUX series, Star Wars, Little Women (I read this when I was little, and it just kind of stuck :}), Harry Potter… I could literally go on all day. I read A LOT.

Also, does Death Note count as a book? ‘Cause it’s a manga, but… *shrugs*

Favorite TV shows and movies?
I am currently obsessed with The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Doctor Who, Supernatural, The Office, and Game of Thrones TV-show wise. And I really like anything horror-related movie-wise –zombies, vampires, apocalyptic, etc. :D

If you were stranded on a deserted island and had 3 famous people with you, who would you choose and why?
David Boreanaz, because he is not only exceptionally delicious-looking, but he has played a ton of badass characters and would most likely know what to do. Also, I just really like him. Even if he is more than double my age… *sobs*

Jennifer Lawrence, because… why not? She’s just really awesome, and she would probably help keep everybody calm by cracking jokes about food every five minutes.

Bear Grylls. He’s the most sensible person, to me, to be on a deserted island with. He would probably be my only hope for living for more than three days, and he might actually know how to get OFF of the island. See? I can think rationally if I try…

What is 1 place you’d love to visit?
Prague!!! I’d actually love to live in Prague, but sadly I’m stuck in the U.S. for a few more years. I totally freaked out when Cassandra Clare mentioned Prague in City of Lost Souls though, I have to say… like, I had a total fangirl-attack, and started screaming. My parents were not only concerned for my mental health, but they feared that our neighbors might’ve called the police. They didn’t though, thankfully.

Do you have any pet peeves?
I CANNOT STAND it when people confuse ‘they’re’ with ‘their’. Or ‘your’ with ‘you’re’. Especially when said people are in high-school, and have been learning how to spell words correctly for YEARS!!! It makes me want to put my fist through a wall. But I usually don’t end up doing that, obviously… Also, I’m slightly OCD when it comes to correct grammar. Y’know, if you didn’t gather that already.

I also hate it when people mistreat books. My sister once threw away the dust-jacket of a really good book, and I just about murdered her. I slapped her numerous times on her arm, and she even had the nerve to laugh about it!

What are some of your favorite foods? How ‘bout comfort foods?
I could literally live off of pizza. It’s my favorite. And I’d have to say either ice-cream for my comfort food, or hot-Cheetos. It really depends on the mood I’m in.

What’s your favorite scent-one that says “home” to you?
It’s a three-way tie between Sandalwood; the smell of evergreens in the springtime –I know, I’m weird; and Old Spice. I really like all three of those though, so…

What kind of music do you like? Any you absolutely can’t stand?
I like punk-rock and classic-rock. Really anything that’s loud and has a good drum solo somewhere in the mix. My favorites, though, are Sleeping with Sirens, Framing Hanley, Mayday Parade, and Green Day. But my list is far too long to actually list here.

I hate, LOATHE, country music. It just sounds tang-y, and annoying, and… *sigh* And a lot of people find me completely weird when I say this, because I live in a town that has tons of farms and country-people in it. Everybody else seems to like that tang-y stuff, but it makes me cringe!

Tell me one random thing about yourself.
I could be classified as ‘anti-social’. And I would totally agree with that classification.

Just for some insight into you pick one. Feel free to tell why or not.
Chocolate or vanilla?  Chocolate for ice-cream, and vanilla for most everything else.
Silver or gold? Silver, all the way.
Apple or PC? Apple for phones and tablets; PC for computers. (Unless you’re into music-editing, then I’d pick Apple for computers)
White wine or red wine? I’ve never had either, but I guess that I’d choose red wine. It just gives me a good ‘vibe’.
Liquor or beer? Again, never had either. But if I had to choose, it’d be liquor. My best-friend’s dad used to drink beer every now and then, and it smelled disgusting.
Coffee or tea?  Coffee. I would be a complete zombie without it.
Sleep in or get up early? Sleep in during summer and fall; get up early during winter and spring. (I like to watch it snow in the mornings during the last two seasons so…)

Okay, now for the good stuff.
What are your preferred fandoms for writing/reading?
The Mortal Instruments!!! I’ve never actually read anything besides TMI, and I’ve never written for anything else. :D

What kind of environment do you write in?
I turn on music and plop down onto my giant-beanbag. Simple, yet comfy.

Ever write in your PJs?
How else would I?

How bout naked?
No… unless you count under my clothes, then yes. Yes, I have.

Where do you find inspiration for your stories? Do you pull your real life experiences into your writing?
I just write what I feel, really. If I’m happy, sad, slightly depressed… it all ends up somehow in my writing. And no, I don’t normally bring my life into my writing. My life is really boring, so… there’s not a lot to write about.

Do you write on a schedule?
I try to, but I usually just end up writing whenever I feel inspired.

Do you plan out your stories or just write whatever comes to you?
I usually have an idea in mind as of what I want the main plot to be, but then I just end up winging it. I’m really bad at conforming to one single idea, and if I try to follow a plan I’ll usually end up changing everything, so… yeah. I just normally end up writing what I feel like, and then adding things when I edit my stories at the end.

Do you have any writing rituals or superstitions?
Not really. I do like to listen to music or a movie while I write, though. So, I guess that counts, right?

Is one genre easier for you to write than another? Is there anything that you just aren’t that great at writing?
I’d like to think that I’m good at writing humor and comedy, but I don’t really know. I do know though, that I’m not very great at writing romance. I just normally feel awkward writing it, but my readers seem to enjoy it, so… What can you do? *shrugs*

What is the hardest part for you about writing fanfics?
Updating on time. I always feel like I’m letting down the people who’ve reviewed and followed my stories when I can’t update as often as I would like. It makes me feel icky, and I don’t like feeling icky.

Is there a method for coming up with titles for your stories and/or chapters?
I usually pick a random word for the titles that I think would fit the story best, and then try to mold it into the story later on. I don’t really know how I come up with most of the things I write, so… It’s mostly all just random puns and references jotted down when I think of them.

Which character do you identify with the most?
Probably Clary. She’s really artsy and clumsy, I guess, but then she kind of comes out of her shell and becomes a badass throughout the series. I, though, am everything but the badass part. I did take Karate for twelve years though…

Also Jace. I’m known to be overly-sarcastic in everyday life, and I have a lack of friends to prove it. I probably come off as slightly hostile sometimes, so…

And Simon, because I’m just the slightest bit of a complete and total nerd!

Which of your stories is your favorite to write and why? Which of your stories is your favorite concept wise?
I’d have to say Stained is my favorite. It is written differently than my other stories, and I really enjoy writing from the narrator’s perspective, instead of first-person. It’s just a lot more fun to me, writing about characters, instead of writing as if I am them. I don’t know.

My favorite story concept-wise would have to be one that I am currently working on. I am going to write it completely before I post it on Fanfiction.net, though. It’s called ‘The Promotion’. :D

Do you talk to your family about your writing?
They know that I write fanfics, but I have never told them what fandom I’m writing for or anything. I have various passwords set on my laptop and all of the rest of my electronics, so there’s really no way that they could find out what I’m writing. It’s not that I’m embarrassed about what I write or anything like that. I just… want this to be MINE, I guess.

What is your favorite book/episode in your preferred series?
City of Heavenly Fire, hands down! Is there really any competition? Really?

What is the best compliment you’ve ever received on your stories?
Probably this interview, actually.  This, and that ‘Story Spotlight’ thing that you did a while ago. I think that it’s really cool that I’m being recognized as an actual ‘author’, so… It just makes me feel accomplished, I guess. :)

But I do really enjoy all of the compliments that I get on my writing. They all end up making me smile in the end. :D

How do you deal with the inevitable criticism?
I don’t allow anything anybody may say affect my life. Opinions are opinions, and everybody is entitled to their own, but that doesn’t mean that I have to take anything to heart. If somebody tells me something that is constructive and helpful to improve my writing, then yes, I will try out their advice and see if it helps me in any way while I write. But if somebody may tell me something that is just rude, or completely unhelpful in any way to my writing, I will just forget about it and move on with my life. Words are just words, and I don’t have to read them if I don’t feel like it. :D

What is your favorite/least favorite part about your preferred fandoms?
I love how so many people appreciate the poetry and references that are used in this fandom. There’s just so much intelligence that kind of floats around within us, and the inside-jokes are endless. Like, if I talked to my sister how I do to some of the people of Fanfiction. net, she would just stare at me like I was crazy. I can’t talk about all of these awesome things with normal people, and I love that I can actually communicate with other fan-people within this fandom. It’s very welcoming, and so far everybody is really nice so… yeah

What I hate about this fandom though, is that I can’t actually find other people in the fandom outside of the internet. I’ve never actually met anyone in real-life that has read these books. I might if I ever actually get to go tone of those reading conventions, but for now… *shrugs* It might just be because I live in a relatively small town though…

Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
I am probably one of the worst people to ask for advice from… I’m what people would call a pessimist, so… But I guess that if I had to give someone advice, I would just tell them to keep writing. And reading. The more you read, the more writing tips that your mind picks up. You won’t even notice it, until you try writing and you notice just how much you’ve improved. I don’t actually know if this works for anyone else, but this is what happened to me. I just recently started to get into reading a couple of years ago, and now that I look back on my earlier stories I notice all of the mistakes that I made.

Long story short, just keep trying. Keep writing. :D

(Wow, that advice sucked…)

Have any recommendations?
Ascension by Niknakz93, this is one of my all-time favorite fics. It’s just so awesome and hilarious to read, and it is written really well, too.

Also anything by ddpjclaf. She’s amazing.

Really, there are just too many for me to list them all. :D

And lastly, where can all your rabid readers stalk you?
On Fanfiction.net, but of course you already knew that. I have also been thinking about making an Instagram or a Tumblr account for my fanfics. I don’t really know yet, but we’ll see!

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer some questions!
Thank you, it was really fun to do!!!

 

So yeah, you need to go read her stuff. She’s adorably awesome and I can’t wait to read her other fics. *squeal* So yeah, go read and leave her some love!
