You have stumbled across the site I have created strictly for my fanfics. So far they are only fanfics related to Jem and the Holograms, but perhaps more might be written in the future. I have several short stories that were submitted for the annual JemCon fan-fiction contest, but my main fanfic is Deception Through Time, which has been described as an "epic fanfic novel", but is probably more like a "weekly installment series", with each chapter as its own episode with its own cliffhanger ending, but all tying into a larger storyline that does have an ultimate end; much like a Spanish telenovela. It has been a work in progress since 2011 and due to "truly outrageous" feedback from readers, has gone in radically different directions than I had intended when I first began.
Obviously, Lúthien Lúinwë is my "fanfic pseudonym"; it's my name according to the Elvish Name Generator; a nod to the genius of J.R.R. Tolkien, one of my favorite writers. As all the work you see on this site are fanfics and inspired by the works of others, I felt it was only fitting that the name I use when writing fanfics also be a tribute to the works I am inspired by.
Thanks for visiting my site, have fun reading my fanfics, and enjoy!
About my fanfic:
Deception Through Time is a fanfic based on the Jem series of cartoons from the 1980s. All characters from the cartoon are the property of Hasbro and were not created by me. Some of the characters from the Jem series are also the creation of Christy Marx and not created by me.
A brief synopsis of the story: fast-forward over 20 years after the Jem series has ended, and get a glimpse of the lives of the children of the various Holograms/Misfits/Stingers members, and how the rivalries started by their parents are carried on to the kids. There will also be plenty of "flashback" chapters featuring the beloved Jem characters.
The characters of the children are all entirely my creation; there will be a list of characters in my profile to specify which characters I have "borrowed" from Hasbro/Christy Marx (the most obvious being Jem/Jerrica, the Holograms, Misfits, and Stingers, but there are other characters from the show who also make appearances in this fanfic). I will make a detailed list of all the characters so you will know which exactly are my own creation and which I have "borrowed" for use of this story. I also have several "tie-ins" within the story to some other Jem fanfics written by friends of mine at the JemCon forum, so be sure to read their works too if you get the chance!
So far, this fanfic has grown to be very large, so this site has been created upon the many requests I got from Jem fans all over the world to read this story. Rather than e-mail everyone with the chapters, I have decided to host them all here so people can read them at their own leisure.
My original intent was to make this a "weekly installment series", similar to the Jem series itself, so while this is not a "different adventure each week" like the series, it is an ongoing storyline and the "chapters" will be renamed with titles to better describe what the chapter is about. The "chapters" will have titles named after songs from the Jem series, to better depict the style or feel of the chapter/installment.
Readers are also welcome to provide feedback so that people can give commentary and express ideas on how I can improve the story. Constructive criticism is welcome here! However, if you have nothing more to add than "this sucks", you might want to save such opinions for places such as Facebook or other bastions of mindless commentary. ;)
You do not have to be a fan of Jem or even have watched the series to enjoy this fanfic, but it probably helps! ;) To remain true to the Jem template, I have incorporated things such as storylines with "heavy issues", and references to modern-day pop culture. For reasons of artistic license, many of the references to pop culture have been altered or slightly changed, but you should be able to recognize their origins. ;)
Also, this story is rated PG because there is some usage of curse words and hints at sexual situations, but nothing too graphic or explicit. And just to point out, later on in the story, one of the characters experiences a "heavy issue" that is quite controversial, but it was never meant to be written as a political or social statement; it was just something I had the character go through. This is a fanfic, folks! Ultimately, it was written for fun and should be viewed as such! ;)
Copious thanks to Allie and Omar; some great fanfic writers in their own right, who were my first beta readers and who gave me such "truly outrageous" feedback that some of their plot suggestions have taken this story in an entirely different direction than I'd first intended! Thanks also to Maria and Summer, who have also read the first drafts; and to everyone at JemCon forum who supported me in this endeavor and really made me feel a part of their family over the last several months. Thanks to Rodimus at the Virtual Jem Yahoo group for working so hard to find a home for my story. Special thanks to Cosmic Falcon, who provided the artwork that you see in the fanfic description. Thanks in advance to everyone here at the Booksie community who will take a chance on this story! Thank you for visiting my little corner of the web and hopefully you'll enjoy my story!
Without further ado, I should probably quit my rambling and let you get on to the story. New chapters will be added as they arrive, so "stay tuned for the next outrageous episode!"
