irisbleufic is best known for the years they have spent (2004 - Present) as, arguably, Good Omens fandom's most prolific writer. An annual participant in the Good Omens Holiday Exchange since its very first year (2005), they joined the mod team in 2012 and continue in this capacity to the present with co-mods Vulgarweed and Luna. Their influence has even extended so far as fostering fan-community dialogue with Good Omens authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

An adventurous and virtuosic dabbler, irisbleufic is also devoted to actively writing in a number of rare fandoms (see full listing in the sidebar profile), some of which don't even necessarily constitute fandoms as such. Their Toy Soldiers, Hamlet, Sherlock (TV series), Everything Is Illuminated, The Shawshank Redemption, Third Star, Community (TV series), Pacific Rim,The Great Gatsby, and Back to the Future stories are highlights in their body of work.

Reception

It is almost impossible to stumble across a rec list in any of the fandoms in which irisbleufic has written without finding their name there. Attempting to round up all reviews and commentary would prove redundant; suffice it to say, in summary, that they write with fragile and incandescent precision, possessing an extraordinary gift for striking a balance between pitch-perfect dialogue, canon-tight characterisation, and poetic word-choice.

"This writer's stories are often populated by original characters that feel like they've been there all along (cf. Regulars, Crown of Stars 'Verse, Crown of Thorns 'Verse, The Pleasures of the World & Sleight of Hand)." —TVTropes
