Winter-Rae is one of the most prolific writers in the TD community, as well as short stories in other fandoms. She is most known for Crack Pairing
, sometimes called "The Queen of Fanon," as she was the major beginning of influencing Fanon
in the TD Community. Her first one-shot came out early November '08, and is still doing fanon one-shots to this day. Many writers of TD fanfiction 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 most favorite, and well-known, couples that she has inspired are LeDunca (Leshawna
), Bridgold (Bridgette
), and Gwyler (Gwen
). She has written many, many more couples.

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.
- And there is no story she has done without Fanon.
- Fix Fic - Her longest story, I'm On Your Side, is a remake of Total Drama Action.
- Friendship Moment - Plenty.
- Hurt/Comfort Fic - Only the latter, and it's one of her specialities.
- 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.
- WAFF: Most of her fics.
- What Does She See in Him?? - A story theme in several of her stories, namely with Duncan and/or Justin.
