Nikki is a fan writer known under at least three names: Ashleigh Anpilova (NCIS, MFU & S&S), Darby Brennan (Pros), Nikki Harrington (DS, Raffles and Other Fandoms). She's written gen, het, but mostly writes slash. She also written some meta.

"My interest in fandom and slash isn’t just that of a writer, reader, list owner/participant, it is also academic. I subject of my Master’s Degree dissertation was Media Fandom and included a chapter on slash, and my biggest problem was keeping it within the word count. I enjoy discussions on fandom in general as well as in particular at all levels, from the simple ‘did you see that look’? to the more complex and involved comparisons and reasonings, the history and the future."[1]
"In fandom I go by the name Nikki Harrington, and I write/have written in several fandoms under various names. The vast majority of my stories are slash and I read in the fandoms in which I write, again mainly slash. I will also occasionally read in other fandoms if I know the pairing and the story is recommended."[2]
"I was so delighted when I first discovered fandom to know I wasn't odd and alone and there were other people out there who not only had the same thought as I did, but also wrote about it. I'm not as intensely involved with fandom these days as I once was, but I still do enjoy being involved, reading stories, having discussions, etc. etc. even if they aren't as in-depth as they once were. Fandom is a great place to be, it really is. Yes, at times it can irritate and not everyone is happy to play nicely with other people and it can get exasperating, but those things and times really in the grand scheme of things are minor occurrences. For the most part people do play nicely together and respect one another's views. I really wouldn't want to be without it."[3]
