Georgina Kirrin (pseud) is a fanwriter who wrote in four fandoms. She won a STIFfie Award in 1999 for the Professionals story "Awake" and a 1997 Philon Award for the Star Trek: TOS story, "Beside the Wells."

The First? Second? K/S Online Fic

Her short and humorous story, "Trompe L'Oeil," is possibly the first, though probably second, K/S fic posted to the internet:
... posted to alt.startrek.creative on August 19, 1995. The catch here is that although written with the intent of appealing to K/S minded readers, the tease referred to in the title is that in final content, it doesn’t end up being a K/S story at all! Phooey! Apparently it worked as K/S for a significant chunk of the readership, though, for despite its face-value innocence, it was placed in the adult directory for its racy innuendo. The original post has been taken down, but the story lives on at the K/S archive. Says Jess, a K/Ser at heart who had previously published K&S gen in zines, “It was just a daft idea I had in the bath, and I wanted to share it.” [1]

No Shared Universes

In 1997, she made a post to a list that asked other writers to not expand or use her stories:
Please note that I do not give permission for sequels or rewrites of my stories published or to be published under the pseudonyms Alex Blakeney, Susan Legge or Georgina Kirrin. I realise I cannot stop anyone who wishes to do this, however, as I personally would find this distressing, I would hope anyone contemplating this action would abide by my wishes.
