It was a Mary-Sue desire to write myself into that world, rather than just to read myself into it. I wanted to be active, not passive.
[Spike's] a sexgod. Oh, really? Firstly, he's got the attitude which allows you to throw in twists and shocks. I guess that is covered by the whole notion of the ambiguity of him: the monster in the man and the man in the monster. Second, he's the only one of them capable of perceiving what is really going on with the people around him, so he can comment on others. Third, he's an English character within the Buffy universe which means I don't have to translate from English to American!
Yes, [I write] professionally under another name and fanfic under a variety of them. I tend to think of my fic in other fandoms as written using a different style and voice though, so I don't join all the dots between my pen-names.
