Lord of the Rings
The fandom where Icarus started in 1999. She wrote meta under the name Marileangorifurnimaluim on the conservative Barrow-downs forum. There she read an anti-slash screed and followed a link to her first slash fiction story.
In 2002, Icarus quietly began a Harry Potter fan fiction novel, posting a chapter a day. The original unbeta'd version of Primer to the Dark Arts is still available on fanfiction.net. This story is sometimes referred to as one of the Harry/Snape classics.
In late January 2003, the NC-17 RestrictedSection.org archive received a Cease & Desist letter from Raincoast Books. With the green light from Kissaki of RS.org, Icarus launched the RS.org Sleazy Fic Drive, promoting more NC-17 Harry Potter stories in response. Ink-Stained Fingers and the former Snitchfiction archive offered to house the stories.
Between 2002 and 2005, Icarus wrote approximately 70 Harry Potter fics, including fourteen Percy-centric stories. She played Percy (interimminister) in the HP Dungeons RPG, and moderated the 2004 Percy Fic-A-Thon. Icarus runs the Percyness archive.
In 2007, Fanlib launched an attempt to capitalize on fanfiction. Icarus compiled fan reactions as well as articles from mainstream press and the blogosphere in Summing Up FanLib. This post was linked to all over fandom and by Henry Jenkins.
