Excerpts

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

I've been writing and posting fanfiction since 1996.

I have participated in many fandoms in the past and I anticipate moving on to other fandoms in the future. I'm a serial monogamist when it comes to fandoms.

What fanwork are you most proud of? Or, what is your favourite of your fanworks? (links, please!)

I'm most proud of my Sentinel Sweetcheeks series. It was the most fun to write and I think I managed a good and serious storyline inside the fun.

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?

I love the pairing because I love the way they intereact on screen. It's such a deep but unlikely friendship - the laidback military guy verse the uptight scientist. Col. Laconic vs. Dr. Voluable. I love the way they play off each other, and I really love the way that their relationship colors everything that happens on the series. I honestly don't see anything to dislike about it. There are too many episodes to name as to favorites, but scenes - John convincing someone to kill themselves for Rodney's sake; Rodney shouting for John while his mind was regressing; every time one will do something just to save the other - all of it is amazing. As for other ships - I like the idea of Ronon/Jennifer a lot.
