Fantasyland

Project Type: TV Series

Genre: fantasy

Status: a disorganized, clump of ideas

 

Fantasyland is an alternate world, parallel to our own, and home to fictional characters from esteemed movies and TV shows. I’ve always been obsessed with combining popular characters into a single story. Fantasyland is by far the most successful execution of this concept. Think Avengers, but bigger.

Though it reuses old characters, Fantasyland itself is new and inventive. I do my best to respect and stay within reasonable parameters of the originals, but Fantasyland is not made to commit. Familiar characters may act differently, due to different interactions and experiences. Fantasyland’s content may also shed new light on certain issues within the originals. Above all, I encourage all readers to keep an open mind. Fantasyland is made so that you can understand and enjoy the story even if you’ve never watched or read the originals.

I don’t like to call Fantasyland “fanfiction” (though that’s technically what it is). Fantasyland is a mass collection of ideas accumulated over the years, a world more vivid than any other. It contains no gender swapping, no smut, and no self-insertion.

I am very aware of the copyright issues Fantasyland will present. Even so, I have hope that someday people other than myself will be able to enjoy this world and its characters.

The Biggest, Baddest F-Word

Project Type: Novel

Genre: YA Realistic Fiction

Status: In Progress

 

Ally Huntley is not a f*minist. When her protest-marching mother spiraled into depression and alcoholism, it was her father who kept her afloat.

Rose King is not f*t. She’s just like any other runway model, except curvier, louder, and darker than the industry allows.

Joy Delgado is not f*ke. She’s nice, she’s agreeable, she’s friendly, to the point where nobody knows who she truly is, not even her.

Layla Li is not a f*ilure. When her stereotypical strict Chinese parents kick her to the curb, she finally has the freedom to pave her own way in the world. But at what cost?

Samara Bukhari is not a f*ggot, even if she finds her best friend kind of cute. And the waitress at Starbucks. And she’d probably make out with Wonder Woman over Superman.

Five young women living together in an NYC apartment realize, kicking and screaming, that they all have something in common.

 

 

A Reign of Roses

Project Type: Novel

Genre: YA Fantasy

Status: Completed (querying stage)

 

In A Reign of Roses, the people of Maidenvale worship the goddess Lor, who controls the seven suns and the sixteen moons. When two prominent families claim they have Lor’s favor and fight for control of the city, the suns and moons begin to vanish from the sky.

The Serenhardts have ruled for two generations, but their lineage is in jeopardy. Cass Serenhardt is cursed, the first person in hundreds of years to be born without magical powers. The Serenhardts have successfully concealed his weakness from the rest of the world, but the Delarosas know the truth.

Naverne Delarosa is the tool of her determined mother, who believes Naverne is Maidenvale’s true heir and that Cass is the key to overthrowing the Serenhardt dynasty. Yet as infinite as her mother’s ambition is, Naverne has no interest in taking power. Instead, she finds herself haunted by monsters that torment her in her sleep. When she wakes covered in bloody physical evidence, she realizes she’s facing more than a bad nightmare.

With the assistance of a mythical bird and a magic chessboard, Naverne and Cass must work together to unearth the scandalous secrets their parents tried to bury. Yet all the while, the nights become darker and days colder as the goddess’ anger grows.
