Jennifer-Oksana is a prolific fan author who has written for a variety of fandoms, most notably Angel, Battlestar Galactica (2003), The X-Files, Grey's Anatomy, 30 Rock, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

She was also a fan archivist, running the first Alias Slash Archive, and many Lilah Morgan-related archives in Angel fandom.

Jennifer-Oksana is associated with the 1998 essay Bitter Old Fic Queens and Why They Need to Get Over It, the Lilah Morgan character on Angel, the Lilah/Wesley relationship, cross-fandom femslash, and many online disputes on LiveJournal that earned her a spot on the Fandom_Wank wiki.

She was also a known "aca-fan" whose discussions on LiveJournal had long-lasting impact and spawned discussion/description of many fandom tropes.

Jennifer-Oksana joined online fandom in 1996 as a lurker on the Star Trek: DS9 Usenet group. She was also a lurker and or participant on the Debbilmice mailing list.

In 1998, she joined the OBSSE mailing list where she gained the pseud Jennifer-Oksana, but was quickly dubbed "the Beadslut" or "Bead" due to an on-list writing contest thread.

Jennifer-Oksana posted her first finished fic in and caused trouble by duplicating a previously existing title, leading to the thread THINK BEFORE YOU USE *THAT* TITLE!!!!!. This led to an immediate contact with fellow fan FirePhile and the joint-written parody fic "Think Before You Use That Title!" an early example of Jennifer-Oksana's tendency toward controversy, humor, and key collaborations in her fandom career.

Her other notable fics in the fandom include the Choirgirl Set[1], the Scullyslash series started with Inter-Office Politics and Drive, He Said.

Jennifer-Oksana's time in X-Files fandom also spawned the phrase BOFQ.

She moved into Buffy the Vampire Slayer fandom after meeting Kate_Bolin in 1998. The two began the multifandom mailing list Silverlake together.

Fan Comments

Looks like the events of the movie put me in a romantic mood this summer. This story has all the things I like when in a certain mood: an interesting case, a good grasp on the characters and their internal conflicts, and some sex. Hooboy! If you're in this mood too, give in to the "Impulse". You won't be sorry. Plus, it starts out with a great line: "Scully, have you ever wanted to kill me?" [2]
