Dasha K., now primarly known as dashakay, has been active in fandom as a fanfic writer on and off since 1998. She primarily writes het fiction, but has also written gen, slash, and femslash.

Her first fandom was The X-Files, where she was best known for writing MSR, but also wrote Scully/Skinner, Mulder/Krycek, Skinner/Doggett, Mulder/Melissa Scully, and femslash with Scully and original characters. She won several Spooky Awards for her fanfic and was known for her fiction collaborations with Plausible Deniability. Dasha was also a moderator of the Scullyfic mailing list. During this time period she also wrote several femslash Buffy the Vampire Slayer fics.

After a break from fandom between 2002 and 2008, Dasha returned to X-Files fandom just before the movie X-Files: I Want to Believe was released. She posted several fics and frequently collaborated icedteainthebag, including creating and moderating the X-Files Porn Battle and co-writing an interactive fic on LiveJournal, Truth on the Road.

Dasha next joined Battlestar Galactica (2003) fandom, where she primarily wrote fic focused on the pairing of William Adama and Laura Roslin. She also wrote extensively in the The Big Bang Theory fandom, writing the Sheldon/Penny pairing. She maintained a Big Bang Theory fanfic recommendation site, In My Humble Opinion, on LiveJournal.

She has also written X-Files and Battlestar Galactica RPF and numerous crossovers.

As of July 2016, Dasha is writing fanfic for X-Files and The Expanse.

A Fan's Comments: 1998

Dasha is fairly new on the fanfic scene, and she's made quite an impact. I really can't describe her "Jitterbug Perfume Trilogy" any better than she can, so I'll use her words: "Basically, your mother's worst nightmare: angst, booze, bad language, techno music, smoking, lesbians in high heels, smut, tight t-shirts, slash, and even some love thrown in for the heck of it." Sounds scary, I know, but trust me. This is adult stuff, and not for the faint of heart, but I haven't lied to you before, have I? Is it warm in here??? A little less hot, but still good is "Momentary Lapses" in which Scully confesses her sins and tries to stop being weak. [1]

A Short Self-Description by Dasha K: 1998

She has been writing short stories since she was very small, but for some reason fanfic has made her dangerously prolific. She tends to write MSRs, but she does her darndest not to be sappy. Lately she has been getting rather smutty, but she thinks that subliminal messages in FTF are to blame. In her spare time she likes to go dancing, drink frightening amounts of espresso and make kick butt mixed tapes. Dasha would also like to add that sending a writer feedback is good for yur karma.
