It's a [[SherlockHolmes Sherlockian]]! No, it's a [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Ringer]] No, it's a [[Series/DoctorWho Whovian]]! [[OverlyLongGag No, it's a]] Franchise/StarWars[=/=]MarvelCinematicUniverse[=/=]WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand {{Fangirl}}! It's... ''Tropers/AleineSkyfire!''

Though some people do call her "Aleine", she most commonly goes by "Skyfire" ("Sky", if you're a friend). She also goes by Gwendolyn Frame (on Twitter, for example), but she'll never tell if it's her real name or a pseudonym. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial She actually does have a life outside the Internet]], although she can also argue that a big part of her RealLife ''is'' the Internet. She's a Sherlockian author with one self-published ebook, ''[[ At the Mercy of the Mind: A Journey into the Depths of Sherlock Holmes]]'' and [[ her first novel]] on the way. You can read more about her current work on the ''Fanfic/DeliverUsFromEvilSeries'' page.

She loves SherlockHolmes. In fact, she '''adores''' ''Series/SherlockHolmes''. And she really mourns the fact that she never got the chance to meet JeremyBrett. Maybe she'll have better luck with BenedictCumberbatch. (Shh, don't spoil her delusions!) Also, she regards Guy Ritchie's Film/SherlockHolmes films simply to be Film/{{Ironman}} in steampunk!London. Yeah, she really doesn't like RobertDowneyJr as SherlockHolmes, although she likes him a lot as Tony Stark.

She can be found at the following sites:
* [[ FanFiction.Net]]
* [[]]
* [[ her Sherlockian blog]]
* [[ YouTube]]
* [[!/GwendolynFrame Twitter]]

Sky ''loves'' to spread the news of ''Series/SherlockHolmes'' around TV Tropes. She also likes to spread the news of her [[Fanfic/DeliverUsFromEvilSeries fan]][[Fanfic/ForGood fics]], and she likes to make pages for other people's [[Fanfic/OneHundredDays fa]][[Fanfic/TheGhostMap nf]][[Fanfic/AStudyInRegret ics]]. Doing so gives her a feeling of power and a sense of a job well done.

She lost her password to this troper name and now goes by Tropers/{{aleineskyfire2}}. But everything that is said of Tropers/AleineSkyfire still applies to Tropers/{{aleineskyfire2}}.

!!Aleine Skyfire's {{Fanfiction}}:


[[folder:Fics with Their Own Tropes Page]]
* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'': A Series/DoctorWho[=/=]Literature/SherlockHolmes [[CrossOver crossover]] rewriting the events of NuWho Season 3, substituting Holmes and Watson for Martha Jones as the Doctor's Companions.
* The ''Fanfic/DeliverUsFromEvilSeries'': A {{Canon}}-compatible series of Literature/SherlockHolmes pastiches, depicting the culmination of the struggle between Sherlock Holmes & Co. and Professor Moriarty's [[TheSyndicate criminal empire]].
* The ''Fanfic/ForGood'' series: A ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' Alternate Universe with an {{OC}} protagonist.

[[folder:Common/Notable Tropes in Her Fics]]
* ActionGirl: Natch.
* {{Adorkable}}: Expect at least one character like this.
* TheAtoner: Fred Porlock, Warp Darkmatter, Zomega, Grand Admiral Thrawn's clone...
* AuthorAppeal: Used extensively. This is not ''always'' a bad thing.
* BeingEvilSucks: It really does. Usually induces a HeelFaceTurn and an [[TheAtoner atoner mentality]].
* BerserkButton: Whether it's [[SherlockHolmes John Watson]], [[WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand Buzz Lightyear]], or a Franchise/StarWars character... it's always going to be for a loved one.
* BewareTheNiceOnes[=/=]BewareTheQuietOnes: Always. ''Always''.
* BigBrotherInstinct: John Watson, Buzz Lightyear, and Obi-Wan Kenobi are the worst offenders.
* BilingualBonus
* CanonDiscontinuity: Sometimes.
* TheClan: She's the oldest child of a large family. Expect a big family to pop up in her works sooner or later, as well as a large ''honorary'' family.
* ContinuityPorn: As a rule of thumb, if any multi-chaptered fic does ''not'' contain references to many different stories/books/episodes/etc., she doesn't know the {{Canon}} of that fandom as well as she'd like.
** This trope is most exemplified in her SherlockHolmes and Franchise/StarWars fics.
* {{Crossover}}: Ooo, she's a big fan of these.
* DarkerAndEdgier: She vacillates between this and LighterAndFluffier. However, no matter how much torture is involved or what character dies, she shuns gratuitous swearing, innuendo, and implicit/explicit sex scenes.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes so extensively used that she ends up with a WorldOfSnark. Has a tendency for TallDarkAndSnarky.
* {{Determinator}}: Plenty of these.
* EyeTropes: Ho boy, massive AuthorAppeal. She particularly fangirls over SherlockHolmes's Grey Eyes...
* {{Fangirl}}: Expect one of these to pop up sooner or later, whether as a canon character or as an {{OC}}.
* {{Fanon}}: Sometimes she stands with it, and sometimes she stands against. Either way, expect a FandomNod.
** Also, she has her own {{Fanon}} 'verse for each fandom she writes for.
* FixFic: Quite a few of these, in various fandoms.
* FlashbackNightmare
* GenreSavvy: There's always one such character in a multi-chapter fic - sometimes, more than one. Plus, every now and then, you find someone DangerouslyGenreSavvy.
* HeroicBSOD
* InterspeciesRomance: If there are aliens, expect this to happen sooner or later.
* IrishmanAndAJew: Tends to crop up in her [=OCs=], as a result of the author actually having a similar heritage.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Inspector Patterson, Warp Darkmatter...
* LighterAndFluffier: As mentioned above, her fics swing between this and DarkerAndEdgier, seldom with a happy medium.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Most noticeably between SherlockHolmes and Mary Watson, but it occurs in her other fandoms.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: She can't seem to avoid them in her series(es).
* LoveHurts: Boooy, does it ''ever''.
* ManlyTears: Almost always over the death of a loved one.
* MoodWhiplash: Definitely. One chapter will be LighterAndFluffier, and the next DarkerAndEdgier.
* {{OTP}}: Typically at least one pairing per fandom, inducing many shipping fics. Thus far, we've got Buzz/Mira, Warp/Erin, Thrawn/Maris, Obi-Wan/Siri, Anakin/Padme, Rex/Ahsoka, Watson/Mary, Mycroft/Anthea, Holmes/(Beth)Lestrade, Lestrade/Annie, and Nine/Rose. (It should be noted that, while Holmes/Beth is rather late in the game, she now considers it her "overriding" OTP.)
* NarrativeProfanityFilter: Not used so much these days (the author herself apparently got DarkerAndEdgier), but in her oldest fics, she used asterisks to stand in for actual swear words. It didn't really work.
* NotSoStoic: If there's a character who is canonically a stoic kind of guy, expect that stoicism to be thrown out the window sooner or later, whether it's Grand Admiral Thrawn or Sherlock Holmes, etc.
* ThePowerOfFriendship[=/=]ThePowerOfLove: If you were to ask for one CentralTheme for ''all'' her fics, it's these two tropes, right here. This is where it's at.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Another {{Motif}} of her work.
* ShoutOut: Actually one of the weak points of her writing - sadly, some of her fics have been bogged down by many references to many different things. Just visit the [[ShoutOut/ForGood Shout Out page]] for ''Fanfic/ForGood''.
* SoProudOfYou: Where there's a mentor, expect this trope in some form.
* ThereAreNoCoincidences: ''Never''.
* TimeTravel: Such a huge source of AuthorAppeal, it's barely even funny!
* TrueMeaningOfChristmas: Where there's Christmas in her stories, there's always at least a nod to the First Christmas.
* WhatTheHellHero
