Marguerite is a multifandom fan writer.

In 1999 or 2000, Marguerite was interviewed by the Chronicle X archive. See Chronicle X Interview with Marguerite.

Her first piece of fanfiction was "When the Bough Broke". She wrote of its inspiration:

"Emily." Of all the non-resolved endings, THAT was the one to push me over the edge. No way was that scene going to be enough for me, so I wrote "When the Bough Broke" and eventually got up enough courage to post to the newsgroup.

The first person to send feedback was CiCi Lean, who was glad to see that my Bill Scully was, as she put it, "non-demonized and human." From that moment on, I was hooked.[1]

Fan Comments

Our first author this month is one of our own. She goes by Sister Jezebel around the Abbey and being an OBSSE Sister you know she's going to write a strong Scully. Still, with a name like Sister Jezebel, is it any wonder that the first piece of hers I recall reading was an answer to a fanfic challenge about vibrators? Her answer: "Batteries Not Included". All silly stuff aside, I strongly recommend her story "Changing Woman". I hadn't seen the subject of how Scully feels about putting that chip back in her neck with all its ramifications dealt with effectively and this tale rises to that challenge - a must read about struggle and faith. Also recommended for those of us who long to hear the conversations that Scully and Mulder so need to have - on camera for once - "PAX", because chances are you aren't going to see them on the show.
