Alara Rogers is an active and influential member of several fandoms over the years, including Star Trek and X-Men, with a particular focus on the characters of Q and Magneto. She was the Trekiverse archivist (1995–1998) as well as contributing a great deal of time to the X-Men fandom. She also served on the alt.startrek.creative.all-ages Appeals board.

As well as writing her own fanfiction, Alara provided both feedback on others' stories and opinions on a number fandom-related topics, including slash, Mary-Sues and women in fandom. She is known as a straight-shooter - she may not always couch things in delicate terms, but she usually has a point to what she is saying, and a wealth of experience in writing and fandom to share.

Her personal archive holds an extensive library of fanfiction and meta, as well as links to other archives of note. Per her and AO3 accounts, she is still posting new fanfic.
