I’m an aging fangirl, self-proclaimed narcissist, writer by night, and control accountant by day. I rarely see things as straightforward and have the vocabulary to argue my point so long as I am not required to do so verbally. I’m also painfully shy and need validation before making any point big or small. I’m also a lover of the villainous and fluffy.
My all time favorite story is FFVII and my all time favorite character is Sephiroth. I am also partial to the current Loki as portrayed by Tom Hiddleston *such swoon, so fangirl, wow*
Northern Lights, my latest FFVII fanfiction and writing effort, has been completely posted here as of September 3, 2015. If you enjoy paranormal romance (even if you are not familiar with the original story of FFVII), you will probably garner some enjoyment from the tale.
I’m currently editing another FFVII fanfiction The Broken Rose and intend to begin posting that once I finish up the first five chapters. You can follow my progress on that and other writing projects in my State of the Writer weekly posts.
I also post fanfiction on Fanfiction.net and Archive of Our Own (AO3), the latter of which I like much more. FF.net developed seriously draconian censorship issues about a decade back, so the latest fanfiction will most definitely not be able to go on there. Also Fanfiction.net changes every hyperlink to another site to redirect back to Fanfiction.net. It is way uncool, and the sites probably only still around because it’s the main place to post fanfiction and AO3 is still technically in beta and fairly small.
I’m on hiatus from editing my original paranormal romance novel The Serpent’s Tale, but I hope to pick that back up before the year is out.
I additionally write for the Caffeine Crew, a blog for all things geek and am generally considered the resident Final Fantasy Guru. I spend far too much time on my Pinterest, but it makes me happy so I can’t feel truly guilty.
My Goodreads, where I also spend a great deal of time, is here. This site has proven invaluable especially for my State of the Reader posts, as I use it to keep track of the myriad books on my TBR list. I’m friends with quite a few of my WordPress buddies there and quite happy to be. Feel free to friend me there. I can talk books just as passionately as I can talk video games 🙂
I’m on Twitter under @ash1rose (TheShamefulNarcisist). I’m not as prolific there as a writer should be, but I’ll pop on every so often. I’m also on YouTube as The Queen of Sevens (so happy you do no longer have to use your real name. Seriously who the hell thought that was a good idea on YouTube??), and I hope to have more on there soon than just my four slideshows. I’m also The Queen of Sevens on Instagram (let’s face it…I’m the Queen everywhere *omg not really*) where I post cat pics and selfies because that’s why the internet exists.
I run an Aeriseph forum and an Aeriseph Facebook page where I casually RP (roleplay) Sephiroth. I kind of inherited them from a fellow fangirl friend. I try to update when I have things to update them with, but sadly, I don’t have time to make much of a concerted effort. If I post an Aeriseph centered macro here, then it will more than likely end up in both places.
My DeviantArt is ash1rose where I also post my fanfiction and connect with other writers and purveyors of the visual arts. I was mostly using this site as a place to collect fan art (similar to Pinterest), but I’ve recently found a small but mighty community of other authors, and I shouldn’t fail to mention the army of cosplayers I’ve made friends with there, as well.
I have a tumblr Searching for an absolute where I mostly post and reblog Final Fantasy (VII), but I also follow blogs concerning Steven Universe, ASOIAF/GOT, My Little Pony, and (very recently) Stranger Things.
Have I covered all of my social media hangouts? God, I hope so…if you’re curious about anymore or anything just ask!
