Creator / Winter Rae
Winter-Rae was one of the most prolific fan fic
writers in the Total Drama
fandom, and also writes stories in other fandoms. She is best known for Crack Pairing
, and is sometimes called "The Queen of Fanon" for her influence on the Total Drama
fanfic-writing community. Her first one-shot appeared in early November 2008; the most recent available one is from 2012. Many TD fanfiction writers from that period credit and mention her, as she has been a big influence in all kinds of Fanon, as well as writing positive, kind-hearted stories that influence many others.
Winter's favorite and best-known couples that she has inspired are "LeDunca
), "Bridgold" (Bridgette
), and "Gwyler" (Gwen
). She has written many other couples as well, for in her own words she "[sees] pairings in everything."

This Author invokes the following tropes:
- Berserk Button - One of the very few ways to get on Winter-Rae's nerves is to make Leshawna a villain or Out of Character; it was her primary reason for hating Total Drama Action.
- Creator Thumbprint - Her favorite pairing, Leshawna/Duncan, is in almost every single story she has done. Practically the only exceptions are when she writes a request that pairs them with someone else.
- All of her stories focus on non-canon couples; occasionally she'll have a canon side pairing, but they're pretty rare.
- Fix Fic - Her longest story, "I'm On Your Side," is a remake of Total Drama Action that mostly focused on Gwen/Tyler. She eventually deleted it, however.
- Friendship Moment - Plenty.
- Hurt/Comfort Fic - Only the latter, and it's one of her specialties.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold - Duncan, in many of her stories.
- Odd Friendship - Eva and Bridgette are usually friends in her stories, despite the former not liking the latter at all in Canon.
- Pitbull Dates Puppy - Done sometimes, but mostly with the couple she wrote about in her very first one-shot, Eva/Harold.
- Sickeningly Sweethearts - How Harold and Bridgette come across in her stories, usually called that by the others.
- Ship Tease - If they are not paired, there are usually some little hints.
- Take That! - Against Twilight several times.
- W.A.F.F.: Most of her fics.
- What Does She See in Him?? - A story theme in several of her stories, namely with Duncan and/or Justin.
