Hello! My name is Leah, and I am a writer that specializes in creative fiction. I believe that creative writing is an important part of our education and our lives, whether it’s relevant to our careers or not.

A Little Background

I am a university student at NIU going for a B.A. in English, following the writing track. I like to write short stories in my free time, some of them being fanfictions that I keep to myself. I have been writing since the 7th grade, refining my craft as I continue to write. I am a huge fan of anime, the Marvel universe, and cartoons; they continue to inspire me to create characters and stories every day. Writing is an important part of my life, and I enjoy helping others regardless if it’s for an academic or not.

My Expertise

I, like many others, am a fan of many TV shows, movies, video games, you name it. As such, I have posted many fanfictions of my own over the years, mostly pertaining to YouTubers and Marvel characters within the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). I have been posting on Wattpad since May of 2015, looking at all kinds of content that the service offers to its users. I have also used the site known as Avengersfanfiction, a specialized fanfictions site tailored to a specific audience, avengers fans. Both sites have a variety of content.

My Wattpad account is JapaneseRosie, previously Maarkiplite.

Why Fanfiction?

As a writer and reader of fanfiction for years, I am an advocate for it. Fanfiction allows writers to express themselves and gush over their favorite fandoms. I want to make a space for writer and readers alike to get a taste of what the community is all about, and guide them to the best places to find what they’re looking for. Many people claim that fanfiction is only written by teenagers, but there is actually a much more diverse pool of writers, and some are being turned off by the stigma. I want to cover all of the important topics and keep the fanfiction community informed!
