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

I began writing fan fiction that I’ve shared with other people in 2002. But I wrote fanfiction way back when I was in high school where I wrote stories for the Original Star Trek. I didn’t know it was fanfiction then. Fortunately those notebooks are lost forever!

I began writing in SG-1 when the news came out about Daniel Jackson's fate on SG-1. My first story was a fix it of sorts for 'Meridian.' I’ve been happily writing ever since. I dabbled a little in NCIS, but case fic is HARD, so I moved on pretty quickly to Atlantis where I’ve been happily writing for several years now.

What do you enjoy most about SGA and/or SGA fandom?

The awesome writers! Whether it be episode or series related, crack fic, AUs, whatever - the fic in this fandom is the best! Also? Did I mention the AUs. Someone else said this, too, but it’s true, the characters on SGA aren’t limited by the show. You can recognize them in any situation. I love reading John and Rodney in any situation and setting.

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 was drawn to the fandom because of the fic and the friendship between John and Rodney. I started reading gen fic, but my favorite stories were always the ones with strong John and Rodney friendship. Then when I started watching the show in season 2, you could just see that John and Rodney were meant for each other. They fight and bicker, but they’re always there for each other. My other favorite pairing is Lorne/Zelenka based solely on the episode “The Game.” They are just so cute in that!
