Example Fanworks


  1. ^ "I should probably mention here that 1 of my fannish pseuds (Zeke Black) sounds male, and I have received comments from a few strangers who assumed I'm a guy. Everyone with whom I've interacted in fandom, however, or who has read my journal, I think has always known I'm female. And that I took the name from my female cat, Zeke, who was black. *g* I've mentioned that often enough!" -- Random Thursday, Archived version, October 1, 2015
