I would like to officially open my new Dracula: the Series fanworks journal... magyars. Everything has finally gotten backed up from the DtS communities. Everything from here on out will be never before published.
Everything else besides this introduction will be lj-cut.
My History with DtS:
I started watching DtS when I was 9, I taped them off the satellite. I've been in the fandom since 1996 (when I was 14) when I discovered Lucard's Home Page and realized I was NOT alone in my love for the show. Fanfic writing started at 23, which makes it less than a year since I am making this entry on July 17, 2005. I started writing because I found myself in an RPG based upon the series and I was inspired.
I still have Varney and Sophie's journals. Sophie is in theatrical_muse so she writes a little ficlet every week. If you want to read her ficlets, they can be found here. You can also friend her, she doesn't mind and she will add you the next time I log into the account.
My Favourite Fanfic Pairings:
OTP (One True Pairing): Lucard/Sophie
OLP (Other Loved Pairings): Lucard/Klaus, Klaus/Sophie
(Though I have read a very interesting Lucard/Max fic, time will tell if that pairing moves into OLP or might even become my slash OTP. Hint hint sorchar/sorchafic!)
OT3 (One True Threesome): Lucard/Sophie/Klaus (Stop looking at me like that!!)
What will be in this journal:
Ratings: From G to NC-17. I prefer writing G to PG13 in ratings. I also prefer writing general fanfic to sex.
Drabbles: While they are traditionally 100 words, I'm letting them go up to 500 because that is what I am used to thanks to dts_drabbles.
Longer fanfics: 501 words and up.
Icons: My ability to do icons sucks, so most of them will be suitable just as bases. I also don't have the proper programs to do anything really nice at the present time. Yes you can use them to do whatever you want, just give me some type of credit, ok?
Mood Themes: If I ever get them done! Currently I'm working on a Klaus theme. Then a Lucard, Sophie, and DtS general theme will come after that.
Reference Lists that haven't been listed elsewhere: For example all the stores, buildings, whatever that are implied or referenced in the series.
Scripts: I've never once found a complete script that was accurate. Like how can people so commonly confuse the Cross of the Magyars with the Cross of Silesia?
Reviews: Everyone has different opinions of the episodes of course.
What will not be in this journal
Fanfics that refer to incest, sorry guys, I do draw the line at that. Incest has been increasing as of late in this fandom, but I'm not touching that with a ten-foot pole. If one character calls another father, mother, brother, son, daughter, niece, nephew, uncle, or aunt. anytime in the series then I will not be writing that pairing. The only exception to this rule is Lucard/Klaus, Klaus DOES call Lucard father in "Decline of the Romanian Vampire."
I will be taking requests, provided the request is not for incest.
Other than that, I really like exploring characters that rarely appear in fanfiction and I would be the person that explores rare pairings (I hate to admit that I have considered writing an NC17 pairing of Vamp!Bunny!Sophie with Bunny!Lane). I do this to explore and improve myself as a writer as well as exploring minor characters since they often get ignored. I like exploring pre-series events as well.
If you have any suggestions, make them. And yes, I might do cross-overs if I am familiar with the other show's canon.
Some of my ratings have changed. Mostly because they were arbituary before. I think one of my Rs was demoted to PG13 and a PG was demoted to G. I realized that of the four children of cyber_pagan's, each one was perfect as a different rating level since their ages were all spread out. So that is why I changed my ratings, in order to be more consistent.
