Five Things Sumeria is a 2016 Q&A guest post, conducted by the Organization for Transformative Works' Communications Committee with OTW volunteer and Tag Wrangling Committee staff member Sumeria.

It was carried out as part of a series. See Five Things Said.


What fannish things do you like to do?

I read a truly astonishing amount of fanfic, and then I bookmark and obsessively tag my favorites on my Pinboard page, because that is the kind of person I am. In retrospect, the fact that I ended up a tag wrangler may have been somewhat predictable.

I do fanart a lot more than I write, though. I’m currently embroiled on a project of trying to do portraits of the entire cast of the Silmarillion which is…ambitious of me, perhaps, but what is life without flinging yourself into ridiculous projects, right?

What’s the most fun thing to you about volunteering for the OTW?

Spending time chatting with the rest of the tag wranglers while we sort through our various bins is actually kind of a delight; someone is guaranteed to have discovered some new thing that I personally would never have imagined anyone tagging for pretty much every day. I’m usually a lurker by nature on the internet, but wrangling is a surprisingly good social outlet. I’ve met a number of amazing people while wrangling.
