Cody Nelson is a slash fan fiction writer, vidder and fanzine publisher. She also maintained E-Mail X-Creative, an X-Files fan fiction mailing list in the late 1990s. Her fan fiction has won numerous awards. She has also illustrated a few of her fanzines.


"I posted my first piece of fanfiction, the X-Files case story “Voices,” in the fall of 1994. My first slash story was the Wiseguy/Miami Vice crossover, “Down the Rabbit Hole.” I’ve forgotten exactly when it was written, but it was sometime in the first half of 1995—before the end of the X-Files‘ second season, when I succumbed to the charms of Alex Krycek and began a long stint as a Mulder/Krycek writer.
My second big fandom was Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel the series. My favorite pairings in these shows were Buffy/Spike and Angel/Lindsey. My urge to write in these fandoms was short-lived, though, lasting only through Buffy’s fifth season and Angel’s second.
From there, I spent a very short time in Lord of the Rings fandom before moving on to my next big obsession, Yu-Gi-Oh! Favorite pairing here was Yugi/Jounouchi (aka Joey), although I also wrote an awful lot about Kaiba.
