How long have you been writing fan fiction and/or making fan art and/or whatever else (vids, knitted goods, pornographic gingerbread cookies)?

Fanfiction--Since December 2005, knitting--a few years longer than that, though sadly nothing fannish. (I may have a semi-fannish song to post soon though, emphasis definitely on the "semi".)

I started out in HP, where I wrote mostly Draco/Hermione. I lurked all over the place for a few years before that.

Why do you ship McKay/Sheppard? What draws you to the pairing, what do you like and dislike? Favourite scenes or episodes? Quotes? Screencaps? What other SGA pairings do you ship?

So much affection seems to come through in the show. I love the way they complement and play off each other. And neither one of them is hard on the eyes. The Game may be my favorite McShep episode today, but that'll likely change by tomorrow.

I also possess a soft spot for anyone who loves Rodney. So I enjoy McKay/Keller and other Rodney pairings, and I've written a little Rodney/Teyla.

As for writing, how do you write? Do you do it in fits of inspiration, or do you let it percolate, or do you form it out of wisps of dreams?

The sad truth is that I *don't* write until I am forced into it kicking and screaming. That's why I participate in so many fests and exchanges. If I didn't have a deadline I would never produce anything.
