Welcome to Dreamer’s Sanctuary! I’m Julie, and I’m a huge Backstreet Boys fan. I have been reading and writing BSB fan fiction since 1999. I write a variety of stories, but my specialty is drama/angst, and my favorite Boys to write about are Nick and Brian. On this website, you will find my stories, as well as links to my favorites by other authors.

Thanks for visiting the site!
I have a couple of new old short stories for you today. I wrote both of them for the Fairy Tale Challenge over at Absolute Chaos, which required us to write a fanfic twist of “Beauty and the Beast” that fit our writing niche. The challenge was anonymous, and the goal was to see if we could identify the writer of each tale based on how they chose to twist it. Now that the challenge is over, I can post my two stories under my own name.
The first one I wrote is called “Shorty and the Deceased,” and the other is “Beauty and the Backstreet Boy.” They can both be found on my Short Stories page. If you didn’t read them over on AC, I hope you enjoy reading them now!
Both of these stories were written back in early August before school started, and I’ll be honest – I haven’t written anything since my last update. I have been crazy busy with work and class. Maybe one of these weekends I’ll have the right combination of free time and inspiration needed to write. Bear with me. Thanks for your patience!
Also, thanks for your votes at the Double Rainbow Awards! I won Best Author, Best Series for Broken, Best Novel and Best First Person POV for Curtain Call, and Runner-Up Best Angst for Unsuspecting Sunday! Thanks again!
I’m sorry for the month-long gap between updates! School has officially started up again, so it’s been a busy month. I do have a story update for you, though. I’ve contributed a new Nick death to the round robin 1000 Ways to Kill Nick Carter, called “This is Nuts!” Check it out!
Now that I’m back at work, I have significantly less time to write, so my updates are going to slow down. I am also starting a three-year master’s program, which means less time to write fanfic on the weekends once I start having papers to write and academic reading to do. I did manage to keep updating all through college, so I have no plans to stop writing or anything, but I did want to warn you that I probably won’t be writing as much.
That said, I do have a few more chapters of both Guilty Roads and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Backstreet Boy finished that I will be posting over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for those. Thanks for visiting the site, thanks for reading, and thanks, as always, for your support!
And on that note, voting starts tomorrow in the Double Rainbow Awards! Make sure you go vote for your favorites!
Guilty Roads has been updated with Chapter 14. Finally, an update on Kevin!
Song for the Undead has not been updated, but it does have a brand new look! Check out the new site at http://dreamers-sanctuary.com/undead
As you may have seen, I’ve been nominated at the Double Rainbow Awards, hosted by Rose’s site and my affiliate Double Rainbow Fiction. Head on over to nominate your favorites before August 20th!
As you may have noticed or seen on Twitter, Dreamer’s Sanctuary has been moved to a new server. After thirteen wonderful years with Yahoo, I switched to a new hosting company, Bluehost, which will supposedly work better with WordPress and save me some money on the cost of the domain. If the site looked strange or didn’t load correctly for you in the last few days, that is why.
I’m happy to say that the whole site has been moved and seems to be running smoothly so far! I did make some changes to the structure of it when I re-configured WordPress, so if you had linked directly to any pages on the WordPress site, you may find that those links are now broken. You can fix them by taking out “/fanfic” from the URL. I think I fixed all of the links on the site, but if you do notice any broken links while you’re browsing that should be there, please let me know so I can fix them!
The only thing I was not able to backup from the old site were the memberships, or registered readers. If you left a comment or review on the old site, I will add you back myself with the same username and email address you used to register. The only thing you will need to do is change the password, which you will receive in an email. Unfortunately, if you registered but never commented, I don’t have a record of your username to restore your membership, so you will have to register again. I apologize for the inconvenience! Registering is only necessary if you want the ability to leave feedback on the site, in order to prevent spam comments.
Now that all that’s out of the way, I do have a new story to share with you. It’s a short story called Unsuspecting Sunday, and it’s my first attempt at writing a slash! I have never been a fan of slash, but I wanted to stretch myself to see if I could write in a new genre. This is the result. I hope you enjoy it!
