    My latest fandom crush is SwanQueen

    and there are so many stories! I often fall for odd and unusual ships and have problems finding fiction about them, so this is an awesome change xD

    I like to write non-romance fanfictions.

    For instance horror themed, or maybe real life themed (which can be boring). I like writing horror fanfics just because it is the easiest for me to write.
