Black Knight Chapter 1
White Knight Prologue
Meet Clarissa Holmes. She's just out of high school (via private tutoring overseen by her uncle), she's brilliant, and loves to travel (there's a lot more to her than that but details aren't important in these sorts of introductions). Though a series of accidents that were certainly not accidental, Clarissa finds herself with quite an...interesting group of people, and they have had quite a few adventures.
What's so important about Clarissa Holmes then? Well, nothing. At least she's not any more or less important than any other person in the universe. She just happens to know people.
Her father is Mycroft Holmes, but she often sneaks away to Baker Street to observe her uncle, Sherlock (who didn't even know she existed for the longest time), and his best friend, John Watson
She's a companion of the Doctor, a Time Lord who travels literally everywhere with his T.A.R.D.I.S.
On one of her many adventures with the Doctor, Clarissa found herself in trouble and was rescued by two brothers who are hunters - Sam and Dean Winchester (she still keeps in touch with them)
She has Tony Stark on speed dial, and somehow got the attention of the God of Mischief, who plots something likely terrible...

It can be for original fiction or fan-fic writers. This is for all writers of any variety.
1. Answer the questions
2. Tag 2 people
3. Have fun! Make the answers long or as short as you like.
1. When did you discover you enjoyed writing?
It was when I was ten, obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean. I had my own OC imagined and this ridiculously complex story, and I just wanted to write it down. I didn't think much of it (and at the time I had no clue what fan fiction or any of that was), but I was proud that I had written something, so I always wanted to go back and do something of my own. Eventually, I started with my first novel, and after a few tips about paragraphing, I was pretty much on my way.
2. What are your strengths in writing?
My first strength has always been dialogue, or at least that's what people have always commended me for. I'm good at descriptions without getting too boring, and apparently I'm able to write vague short stories that still hold a great amount of detail and symbolizing (not saying it's true, that's just what some people have said. I think I suck most of the time).
3. Your weaknesses?
I think I ramble and lose focus a lot on little things, which makes my writing go in little circles instead of a direct and logical way.
4. What is your favorite genre to write in?
Historical and fantasy. Or better yet, put the two together. I really wasn't writing much "modern" stuff until Black Knight (and some of the fan fiction that takes place in modern times), and I like it, but I do write differently depending on the time period.
5. Do you consider yourself a good writer?
I think I'm good at what I do, because that's one of the strongest talents that God has given me. but "...there will always be greater and lesser persons than yourself..." I'm really only concerned with being the best writer that I can be, and even then I know I won't be the best. That's how I like it
6. Do you like to let a lot of people in real life read your work?
NO!!!!!! Oh goodness no. I mean, yeah, I want people to read my books but when it's people that I know...I get really self conscious because there is more of me displayed in my books than anywhere else (except my room maybe). I'm always scared that people that I'm "close" to would be upset and judgmental about my books. I'm probably mostly way off there, but it's still a fear.
7. How often do you write?
As often as I can. There's hardly a day goes by that I'm not writing something, be it a book, one shot, fan fiction, or editing something. It's one of the best things to do when I need alone time.
8. Who are your favorite authors? Why?
Shakespeare is one of those things that just sweeps me away. Amazing works in such beautiful and descriptive dialogue...I swear I can never not want to read Shakespeare's plays. Sally Gardner and Christopher Paolini are two of my favorite authors. Paolini's books (the Inheritance Cycle) were some of the first books I read for pleasure that I endlessly loved, and Gardner's novels are just so wonderfully well written. I also love Stephen Lawhead's Pendragon Cycle, which is (sadly, I will admit) the only series out of his many books that I've completed. He is fantastic at Celtic lore, and I'm never disappointed there I like a bunch of classics, but listing those and their authors would take way too long And I know I've left out a bunch of other authors that I adore, but there are just so many and it's hard to elevate certain ones above others. They all have special meaning to me, so I just can't choose!
9. Do you have any OC's? If you do, describe your favorite one.
You have no idea how many OC's I have! Just last night (well, it was nearly 1 A.M. but that somehow is still "last night") I came up with two new characters But to pick a favorite...would anyone be shocked if I said August Hudson from my novel, Black Knight? Both he and Alistair are very special to me (not only because I'm currently working on their stories...). August was one of the characters that I was very careful in creating, because he is essentially my "ideal guy." So I wanted him a little romantic and loyal to the girl he loves, but I knew I had to be careful to ensure that wasn't really the only thing notable about him, especially when you compare him to Alistair.
But August is smart, funny, a little quiet at times but not a wallflower. He's usually pretty determined when it comes to getting what he wants, and he hates not knowing what's going on. He likes to see people smile, but he knows when not to cross lines (most of the time anyway). He is a little impatient, and gets a little moody when he's frustrated. And he likes his coffee black with a bit of sugar, and his guilty pleasure is caramel...particularly caramel apples
10. If you write fanfic, for what fandoms do you do so?
Heh...Marvel, particularly the Avengers, particularly Loki is what I've written the most of. I did a little Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings a long time ago, but we're going to forget I said that alright? I've done a *tiny* bit of Supernatural and BBC Sherlock...and I'm plotting something horribly complicated for next year....
11. Do you prefer writing by hand or typing?
I have to type. I have to write a synopsis of whatever segment I'm working on, but I have to type aside from that. I would write by hand, but ADD and dyslexia don't help much there. My mind just goes to fast to get it written on a piece of paper before I totally go black, but thankfully, I was pretty adept at typing when I first started seriously writing.
12. Are you a huge critic when it comes to writing?
Guilty as charged. I try to not be, but I'm sorry, grammar, spelling, proper punctuation and overall format are very important to me when it comes to both writing and reading. I just happen to live in a very critical and "everything must be perfect" kind of environment.
13. What format do you most like to write in? (Prose, short story, poetry, vignettes, etc?)
I have to write prose. There are occasional short stories, but it's usual not something I like doing, because I like things to go on and on and on until kingdom come. I've done a little poetry, but I'm not proud of it, aside from a couple of little things.
Hopefully these answers are acceptable and I hope you all enjoyed reading them! I tag... Elflover21 and Feanor-the-Dragon
I'm Loki's girl and I'm in love with Magnus Martinsson.
Hi! I'm Ashly, but you can call me Ash
I am a Christian, and I always try to put God first in my life. I’m dyslexic, which makes a lot of things just a bit more tedious, especially when writing. I adore Shakespeare and love reading/memorizing as much of his works as I can. I’m a hopeless romantic and am annoyingly optimistic a lot of the time, or at least try to be. I am the black sheep of the family, but someone has to be, so why not me?
I do love Tom Hiddleston, as is pretty obvious by my page. Other than his quite dashing looks and amazing abundance of talents, I see him as a humble, passionate, and optimistic man, and he has become one of the greatest inspirations and role models I have (though he's certainly not the only person I admire).
I love to write, as it is one of the few things I know I can do well, regardless of what sort of writing it may be. I greatly enjoy writing fan fiction because it gives me the opportunity to work with a variety of character types, whether they’re the kind of character I like or no, because I strive to keep them in character. It has also helped me to create more individuality between my own original characters. I mostly write about Loki, because there is so much of myself that I see in him (good and bad), and writing about him not only provides the opportunity to understand who he is, but to also understand who I am, and knowing where to draw the line between us.
I currently live in the United States, but I intend to move to London, England after college, assuming that an opportunity doesn’t present itself sooner. I want to study theater and film production, and my career dream is to be a movie/theater writer and director. I’ve also gotten back into writing my own books, and I believe that part of my future is to write and publish my books.
