Monday Meet & Greet with Snowqueens Icedragon

Snowqueens Icedragon
Author Profiles:  FFn, Twilighted, Blog

Hello, Lambchops!

If you look at my profile on FFn, you will notice that I specifically mention a very small handful of fics that I think are just…STELLAR…and this amazing lady, Snowqueen’s Icedragon, writes one of them – Master of the Universe

Snowqueen’s Icedragon can write, really write, and well.  The speed that she puts out her updates, which aren’t short chapters mind you, is mindboggling.  She has a drive and a passion for her stories, which comes through in every word of it.

Safe Haven is her first fic and while I’ve not yet read it, I do have it on my list.  I have no doubt it is also a great story.

Master of the Universe is her 2nd and current fic.  It sucks you in and is so amazing that it immediately became my favorite Edward fic and has remained so ever since.  Unfortunately, due to my other crazy activities, I’ve had to cut down on my reading, significantly.  So I am still behind on this fic and trying to catch up to the whopping 87 chapters that are available as of this posting.  But I am still well into it, and enough to say that it is utterly amazing. 

This woman is able to take something that could so easily be just a story of fetishes and sex scenes and makes it a well rounded story with a multitude of interesting characters, drama, intrigue, romance, comedy…everything!


Tell us about yourself. Married? Single? Kids, age, ..whatever you'd like to share.

Hi There. I am married to N.E.W., who is from Northern Ireland and a TV drama writer. We have two children, boys aged 15 and 13 and a west highland terrier called Max. We live in West London, in an Edwardian(!) semi-detached house with four bedrooms but we’d like to live in Cornwall and on the West Coast of Barbardos – well I’d like to…. a girl can dream eh?

Tell us about Twilight. How did you first get into the Saga, when was the first time you read it, and which book is your favorite?

In November 2008 I saw the film and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I forgot about it until one of my colleagues at work had three of the Twilight books delivered by Amazon. I was curious so I asked my husband to buy them for me for Christmas. On 27th December 2008 I sat down to read them. I surfaced five days later having read them all… I could not put them down. I fell completely in love with Edward. I went back to see the film (another eight times – I think) and all my friends thought I was completely barking. The wonderful thing about finally discovering the fandom – is realizing I am not alone. My favourite of the books is Eclipse… leg hitch… and the meadow bit at the end… need I say more.

What got you to start reading Twilight Fanfiction? Do you remember the first fic you read?

Well I re-read and re-read Twilight et al continually throughout 2009… until in August whilst I was in Spain I discovered Wide Awake on a website dedicated to the boy. Well – that was it I was hooked. I read WA on Live Journal…but when I came back from holiday I discovered both Fan and Twilighted.

Which are your favorite stories?

If Love Could Light the Way

But I haven’t read very many… I had loads of stories I wanted to read in my favourites but I removed them when my fic was reported.

Who are your favorite characters, from who you like the most to er...who you would like to kill right off the bat?

My favourite character is Edward. He’s so pro-active, tortured, dark and abstemious… what more could you want from a …errr vampire. I think evil Lauren and Irina would be my least favourite… hmmm funny that!

Which fics are you reading right now, and which ones have your complete attention whenever they pop with an update?

Only UoEM
And ShinyvolvolurvesYou’re a Dickopotamus, Edward… because Shiny is one funny, full on lady.

What made you finally decide to start writing your own?

The books encouraged me to write. After finishing them at Christmas I couldn’t bring myself to read anything else and I was so inspired I sat down one day in mid January 2009 and started a novel, which I finished in April. I didn’t realise it at the time… but this was my first fanfic. I didn’t know fanfic existed then.

What's the atmosphere like when you're writing? Music.. screaming and ripping each other apart, or husband bitching in the background? Do you drink and/or smoke?
I write at a small desk in the back of my living room. It faces the wall but is beside my eldest son’s piano. I have a macbookpro but I have a keyboard plugged into it. I do smoke and if I want to smoke I have to take the laptop into the kitchen or I pace up and down outside in our back garden. I drink Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc usually…but only in the evenings!!!

The kids come and go – and sometimes because I wear headphones and listen to music most of the time I don’t hear them behind me… and that’s when I end up shouting at them to NOT READ THIS!!! My eldest refers to it as my vampire bondage porn… and I think he’s quite cool about the fact that I write it. My youngest is beyond mortified.

What else do you like to read besides Twilight?

At the moment I don’t.

I am missing my RL friends though and they are giving me a hard time… but generally I just write, tweet too much, sleep and occasionally go to work. (I work part time in Television).

What else do you like to do?

Going to the movies, drinking and drooling over pictures of the boy.

Tell us a secret.

No… it’s a secret.

  2. agreed @bee! it's like you said, it's nice to know, that you're not alone in the world with your craziness about Edward!
