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 in fandom since 2002.

I’ve participated in a variety of fandoms. I started out with Digimon strangely enough. I worked my way into a variety of anime fandoms, notably Full Metal Alchemist.

I tossed in a little House, some CSI: Las Vegas, and some Final Fantasy before moving on to the Doctor Who universe and Torchwood.

From there it’s been Stargate: Atlantis all the way. I would like to get into some other fandoms – I’ve been poked about how awesome Merlin is, but between work and other things, I don’t have that much time.

Do you write original fiction (poetry, screenplays)? Do you create original art (comics, photographs, quilts, wedding cakes)? Care to share?

I do create original works, but I’ve found that fandom has crippled me a little in that regard. Don’t get me wrong. My writing has been vastly improved by fandom, but I find that I have trouble with creating flawed characters because fandom provides them ready-made for dissection.

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 ship McKay/Sheppard because of their relationship and the absolute chemistry between them. Whether it’s a friendship piece or a full-blown love fest, if the author stays true to the snarky character of the pair, then the fic is almost guaranteed not to fail.

There are a variety of moments I love between the pair and just on their own. Almost anything Rodney yells when he is under pressure is sure to be a gem and John in full geek mode is highly entertaining. The episode where they are trading Batman trivia and the one where they are racing cars is just an example of some of the ways the two utilize their “quieter” moments to strengthen their relationship.
