Ely, also known as sisterpandora and musicforcylons, was a fanfiction author and moderator in Harry Potter, Battlestar Galactica, and other fandoms.

Ely was involved in Harry Potter fandom from at least 2002.[1] She was active on FictionAlley Park and the Four Points Alley boards, which spun off from FAP. She was also part of the group of Harry Potter writers known as "the HP Muses", who shared the Yahoo! group Pierian Springs.

In 2005, she started a second LiveJournal, musicforcylons, for Battlestar Galactica fandom,[2] and later became involved with other fandoms under that name. She ran the BSG archive Octagonal Paper from 2005 to 2006.[3] She was also a maintainer of the shagthecag challenge community and the Leverage community parker_eliot.
