breebers: Waterhouse - Crystal and Skull (JWW Crystal)
[personal profile] breebers
Hey all, I'm brand new both to the community and the site (though I'm an LJ transport so my learning curve thus far has been blissfully small). Per the 'instructions' here's my Intro Info to be followed by some randomness about me.

Name: Still working on that one... for now you can call me Breebers
Writing journal: This one (maybe)
Main fandoms: Doctor Who/Torchwood, Highlander, Merlin, Whedonverse, Harry Potter, LotR
Favourite characters/pairings: OCs with any of the above
Genres: gothic, horror, fantasy, historical fiction, whatever my brain comes up with
Types: novel, novella, short stories, film, reviews/rants
Favourite writing tool: Google Docs, journals and pencils

I've been a creator pretty much all my life -- problem is I have so many creative likes I never seem to get to a point with any of them which I could consider proficient (with the possible exception of writing and, once upon a time, singing). However, now as I near the age mark of twenty-ten I feel the pull to, you know, get off my lazy behind and put forth more effort into whatever creative endeavors strike my fancy.
My writing varies depending on what I'm writing. Both my parents are writers (not 'I can sustain myself by my writing' writers, but definitely 'I have aptitude for writing and have published works you can find if you dig hard enough' writers) in everything from magazine articles to film reviews to children's stories to historical non-fiction, so my catching the bug was pretty much inevitable. While I have yet to be published in a genre I actually like, there is work of mine circulating in the form of press releases, newsletters and corporate/civic/event videos.
I very much like the idea of this community being a place to support and spur writers to do more... or at least fail better (about the only thing Beckett wrote that really speaks to me).
Currently in progress I have a dearth of fanfic (which I've never actually posted anywhere, so encouragement/bribes to get me to share are welcome), two novels, two screenplays, and several things I'm editing for other people.

I posted my AU big bang fic. *flails excitedly*

Like [personal profile] shanaqui, I posted my story exclusively to Dreamwidth so I could make it part of Three Weeks for DW.

Title: New Day Rising
Fandom: Jericho
Rating: General
Warnings: None
Words: 15,970
Summary: A time-travel AU, sequel to [personal profile] scribblesinink’s Times Like These. Sent back in time, Jake Green has successfully prevented the September nuclear attacks. Armed with the memories of nearly a year of events that haven't happened, he must pick up his life and find a way to fix relationships that are once more broken. (Minor crossover elements with Supernatural.)

Read it here, where you can also find links to the lovely art that [ profile] optimouse made for it.

I'm also very happy that my muses are all excited about writing id-pleasing fic for my beta's birthday and doing a good job working out the plot hole issues. (Also, for those who haven't seen it, [personal profile] strina wrote a great post about id-fic - probably NSFW language, depending on where you work....)

I'm hoping that finally posting the above fic and having freshly excited muses will mean they're all cooperative for the two ficathons I've signed up for....
