Fandom History

She started in fandom in 1993 on the STREK-L mailing list. Member of the Siddig El Faddil Estrogen Brigade and the STWTTF for a year or two. Her first major fandom was ST:DS9, followed by Highlander, and became a fannish butterfly pretty quickly. Known originally as Shelley Wright, she changed her name to Kronette after seeing the Highlander episodes Comes A Horseman/Revelations 6:8. She was a member of fan clubs for Siddig El Fadil, Valentine Pelka, and Robert Duncan McNeill. She ran the official website for Valentine Pelka [1] (don't remember the years) and created the official Fan Club newsletter The Actor's Palette, producing the first three issues (from what I remember).

She joined LJ in October 2003 and copied that over to DW twice, the last being December 2015. She now participates mostly on tumblr.

Fanzines

She created two fanzines, Doctor Julian Subatoi Bashir, This is Your Life! and Doctor Julian Subatoi Bashir, This is Your Life, Too!. These were gen zines and were given to the actor by her at his fan club gatherings.

Stories in Fanzines

She received The Sizzler Award for 'Slash in Zine Literary Erotica - 2003 for Best Story, "Potential" in Fandom: Smallville, and for Best Zine: "I Can't Stand To Fly" in Fandom: Smallville.

Stories Online

Her story archive was on Geocities, but she submitted her stories to a variety of online archives, including Seventh Dimension and (Man from UNCLE archive). All her works now live on AO3.

Her Stargate Atlantis story, Winner Takes All, was nominated for a Stargate DiversiFICation Award for MCKAY/ZELENKA - humor category.

Vidding

The first vids she saw were for Space: Above and Beyond by Carol S and she was hooked immediately. She started VCR Vidding in 1995 to create those first ST:DS9 vids. By 1996 she had editing VCRs and produced just over 100 vids in dozens of fandoms. She didn't get into computer vidding until 2011, when she began producing vids for Red Dwarf.

She received the following awards from FriscoN 007 Music Video Contest (1999)

  • Most Dramatic: Who Wants To Live Forever for Hercules, creators Dementia Ink
  • Most Romantic: Till There Was You for The Sentinel, creators Dementia Ink
