Charlotte C Hill is the pseudonym of a long-term slash fan who started out in Star Trek: TOS and as of 2015, landed in the MCU. By 1988 she found Starsky & Hutch and The Professionals, when she met Megan Kent, her fan pair of over 3 decades. Together Charlotte and Megan published Manacles Press, a fanzine press that published Concupiscence, McPikus Interruptus, Nudge Nudge, Wink Wink, and special collections and novels through the 1990s. As a way of classifying her story styles, she used various pseudonyms, including Maggie Hall, Sharon Idaho, Dawn Woods, Susan Smithson, and others.

In 1991 Charlotte and Megan started Escapade, a slash convention which will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2020.

Once a prolific slash author, she contributed to Manacles' regular zines, and has written in Almost Human, M7, The Professionals, Space: Above and Beyond, Wiseguy, Buckaroo Banzai, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Once a Thief, Blake's Seven, and Star Trek: TOS among other fandoms. In M7, her favorite obscure fandom, she owned the Drinking n' Fighting mailing list, co-moderated the Write 'em Cowboys writers' fic list, and was the co-archivist of the Drinking n' Fighting archive.

She has contributed to Media Cannibals as a vidder.

To this day, she is contemplating writing the seminal Burn Notice Sam/Michael story.


Other Fannish Activity

  • The first story she ever published online was Apprentice to Journeyman in SW:TPM. The worldwide web inspired her first real pseudonym change and a brief flurry of others, until she eventually settled on Charlotte.
