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 got into fanfiction in 2006, in the House fandom first, then I got into SGA in 2007. I remember gorging on SGA fic during those hazy first few months following my daughter's arrival--I read on the laptop while she was nursing, and had to change the room around every couple weeks because my neck would hurt, depending on which side of the chair I had the table.

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

I adore SGA for its potential--it gave us some great characters, some great 'What If?'s, some great worldbuilding potential. I adore SGA fandom because I can read stories that actually realize that potential, far better than the creators of the show did.

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 like McKay/Sheppard because of their banter, because of the way they get along and don't, the way John doesn't leave anyone behind but can't actually tell them that and the way Rodney is too competitive to let John be the only brave one. They work together, and I love that.

One of my favorite scenes between them is in The Storm, the one with John saying, "And by brisk you mean far." "And by walk I mean run."

I'm multifictional, though--I adore a good OT4, and I'll read most any pairing.
