Hi there! My name is Megan, I'm 21 and I'm from the north of the UK. I'm currently at university studying English Literature and History. Once I'm finished with my undergrad degree, I'm hoping to go on to do a degree in primary school teaching (ages 5-11). I live with my mum, little sister (who isn't so little anymore!) and my two golden retrievers, Kizzie and Luna.

I've been active in fandom for a good few years now. Whether it's writing or reading fic, admiring graphics, or taking part in land comms and discussion posts - I just love it!

My fandoms include (but are not limited to because no doubt I'll forget to mention at least one): Arrow, Teen Wolf, Leverage, Suits, Psych, Shameless US, MCU and Agents of SHIELD, White Collar, Graceland, Torchwood, Inception, Hawaii 5-0, UK crime shows.

You can also find me on: AO3 - tumblr - twitter (let me know if you follow me etc so I can add you back *G*)

Here on lj, I tend to post a mixture of posts - personal, real life posts, fanfic, fandom talk, memes, etc.

If you'd like to be friends, just drop me a comment letting me know who you are.

Today's been an odd day - lots of information and news to take in.

This morning I found out the information for my first placement; this is the school and year group I'll be working with on and off until February so it's a long time. I'm in with year 6 which is quite daunting as it's the oldest children and I don't have a lot of experience with that age. The more I think about it, though, it's a good thing I'm with them - it'll give me an opportunity to gain experience and step out of my comfort zone. The school I'm in seems lovely from their website as well, and I know one of the four other students placed in the same school very well so there'll be a familiar face around. I'm excited!

Most of the day at uni was spent watching everyone's presentations - and then it was my group's turn to give our own. I think it went okay - we were quite pushed for time because everyone had run over so we rattled through it a bit but I wasn't too nervous which was my main aim, really! But yes, there was a lot of listening today and sitting in the same room for ages so I'm quite glad it's now the weekend - especially as I didn't get much sleep last night.

Speaking of last night, A+T (two of my cousin's kids) started at our Brownies. It's going to be lovely getting to see them every week, and they seemed to have a great time. I met up with one of the other leaders/my friends beforehand as well at this new coffee shop that's opened up and it was lovely. The people were so, so friendly and the hot chocolate was amazing. It was good to chat with my friend, too!

Not got much planned for this weekend; I want to do some reading and go over some maths subject knowledge (because year sixes can be very clever!!) I'm also going to watch HTGAWM, H50 and Downton so I'll try and post my reactions/thoughts.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Round 9 at
tv_universe (a multi-fandom comm) is starting! This is a really fun comm for anyone looking for something to do!

(Proper post to come tomorrow night when I'm awake enough to think!)
Title: A Close Encounter
Fandom/Pairing: Teen Wolf, Lydia/Derek
Word Count: 1878
Summary: Written for the prompt: Lydia/Derek, being locked in a room or trapped in a small space.
A/N: This was written for a prompt by the lovely stydia. Lydia/Derek is a pairing I’ve never written before – it was fun to try my hand at something different, and I hope you enjoy the result, even though it turned out more like a pre-relationship fic than them actually being together. Thank you to dani_blondy for reading over the fic for me!

I'll be graduating with a 2:1 in a few weeks time! Honestly, the last few years have been so up and down and I'm really happy to have achieved a (high!) 2:1 and get so much experience that'll help me with work on top of that.

I kinda knew anyway, but the official result also makes it official that I'll be accepted onto the PGCE course - a new, exciting chapter!

Title: The Right Note
Fandom/Pairing: Teen Wolf, Stiles/Derek
Word Count: 3,963
Summary: Stiles learns some things about Derek. Written for the prompt: Stiles wasn't aware Derek even knew what music was - let alone listened to it. But there he was, perpetually shirtless in tight black jeans; strains of something moody and warm drawing Stiles forward as it filled the shadowy loft.
Warnings: a bit of swearing, a brief bit of gore (Teen Wolf style).
A/N: I haven’t written anything in a while because university took over my free time. Feeling a bit rusty, I decided to take some prompts from my friends to try and get back into the swing of things. This one is for wings128.

Thank you to seraphina_snape for the beta!

The Right Note can be found here.
