From the main page of Virgula ad Majorem Dei Gloriam in 2001:

I am no longer maintaining a website for my slash fiction because I am no longer writing it. After three and a half years, I feel a strong need to move on to writing original stories and, I hope, essays and poetry as well. However, my fiction will remain available at the multi-author archives maintained for the different fandoms by those few self-sacrificing souls who ought to be canonized for their efforts.

My Voyager Paris/Kim stories can be found at the PKSP Archive.

My X-Files fanfiction can be found at Down in the Basement, the XF slash archive, and Skinnerotica, which houses both slash and het stories as long as the AD is the star. Thanks to Alice ttlg, the archivist at DitB, the Cornerstone series and my Pendrell Talks stories can be found there in their entirety and in order.

For the time being, my het X-Files stories (including M/Sc, Sc/Sk, Sc/Byers, and a few trios) will remain here.

My Sentinel stories can be found at 852 Prospect.

My Phantom Menace stories, with a few exceptions, can be found at Master and Apprentice. If you are looking for "Indigo," "The Talk," "Ties that Bind," or "The Compulsion," e-mail me and I'll mail it to you.

My Velvet Goldmine stories (and assorted other stories of mine) can be found at the Complete Kingdom of Slash.

And if you're looking for the Rumi and Shams series, I have left it here since it is multifandom, as a kind of precis of what I did for slash.

Asked in 2001 about fanfiction Merri-Todd replied in her interview for Sisters in Smut.

How do you feel about fanfic in general?

I feel it's a great writer's workshop, more fun than the exercises in writing books, but on the other hand, I also feel it can absorb people's energies too much. There are many fine writers in fanfic who *could* be creating their own characters and universes.

Are you still writing fanfic? What are you currently working on?

I'm trying to detach from fanfic, but there are a couple of XF projects I'd dearly love to finish.

Fan Comments

Have you read Cute Old Men? It's definitely geezer fic -- short, sweet and sappy in a cute kind of way. Not to mention, I love stories told from outsider POVs. *G*[1]
