She also created immajer-FK, the Forever Knight True Type font, which she based on the font used in the series logo; and she provided the website design for the main Forever Knight fanfiction archive, www.fkfanfic.com. Under the pseudonym "Cinderella", she was the warleader for Forever Knight War Eight in 1997.
A Fan's Comments: 1999
Imajiru is the author of the Departure series. Departure I began pre-Tunguska. Imajiru described it as "a Departure from the norm all around."
It was very popular, and Imajiru followed it up with a sequel in which Fox and Alex continue their relationship... until they face a bug, red-headed bump in the road. She soon wrote Departure 2.5, which filled in some missing time towards the end of part two.
Finally, she topped things off this year with Departure III, the follow up to the first two parts, in which the ends are tied up, and there's finally a happy ending. The entire series totals over 800k.
Imajiru also wrote six other M/K stories. White Russian on a Beach and Bailey's Irish Creme are her "alcohol stories" though the focus is definitely not on drinking. Birmingham shows us a view of the M/K relationship from a third party. Quicksand (co-authored with Rachel) gives us hurt/comfort at it's best. Resistance is shockingly AU, but is lovely and heartwarming nonetheless. And, last but not least is a breathtakingly bittersweet vignette, Peace, in which something so perfect is not meant to be, no matter how hard they try.Imajiru is also the author of several other X-Files stories, which are mostly MSR, but also include a Mulder/Krycek/Scully peice. She writes in other fandoms, including NightRider.
