Merry, aka Merryish, has been in online fandom since around 1996 as a writer, vidder, archivist, list administrator, and community mod. In mid-June 2011 she posted on her LiveJournal profile about the deletion of her site and the future of her online life, actually she still active on the Archive of Our Own.
As Fan Fiction Writer
She has written stories in Highlander, Sentinel, Stargate SG-1, popslash, due South, Stargate Atlantis, Smallville, and Supernatural as well as for the L'Engleverse, Boy Meets World, CSI, the Vorkosigan books, Numb3rs, The Coldfire Trilogy, Once A Thief, and Sports Night. Her stories can be found at her site anyroad as well as at the Archive of Our Own.
As Fan Fiction Reader
Merry has a known fear mixed with hatred for stories that end unhappily, *and* a great number of friends who understand her. This has led to the concept of the Merry-safe ending: a tag that people include on Delicious links, or a line they mention in their fanfic reviews, that avers that the story's ending has been checked and approved.
Merry has made vids in SGA, Numb3rs, and Smallville; her SGA vid "Hello" (2005) was a notable pimping vid and brought many people into SGA fandom. You can find some of her vids at her vid page.
