Excerpts

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

Hm, my first real fandom was Star Trek: TNG. I started watching when it first aired here in 1990 and fell in love. I wrote fanfic before I knew it was called fanfic. Just for me, though. It was awful!!! I'd blame the fact that I was 11 back then, but I'm not any better now, so, I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Around the same time I started drawing things. I might have been a teensy bit obsessed with Wesley Crusher. I still have those 'art' pieces, somewhere. In the basement, I think.

I once did The Diggin' in the Back of the Closet Fandom Meme You can find my oldest online fanworks there. The 7of9 was my first and only picture ever printed in a fanzine.

My first SGA art was a manip back in 2006.

So, first general fandom fanart 19 years ago, first SGA 3...only 3?

Like I mentioned ST: TNG, DS9, VOY and more recently Merlin BBC and ST-XI (Kirk/Bones forever!).

Why did you choose to join Team Peace?

My style is way too bubbly and bright for Team War.

Um, what kind of art do you like to make best? Photomanip? Hand drawing with traditional/digital media?

Hm, I think hand drawing + digital media. Right this very moment. I love doing manips, but I haven't really made any for quite some time.

Maybe I should...
