Excerpts

How long have you realised you were a Noromo? What do you think about the whole Shippers vs. Noromos thing?

I think all of it is funny. Actually what I find interesting are the "cliques" that have popped up on the internet surrounding the show, and not just NOROMOs and shippers. I wonder if any other show has anything close to this? I'm just a casual Star Trek viewer, so I don't know. As for being a NOROMO, I guess I was one all along. I wasn't aware of the "other" point of view until I started poking around on the internet.

How do you feel about the characters now (eg, are you a OBSSEsor, a Mulderist, a Frohike Liberationist)?

Now as compared to what they used to be like? I'm not a fan of one specific character - I like all of them. However, I do feel that the characters are shadows of what they used to like in the first three seasons.

What are your thoughts on fanfic? Do you read it regularly, write it? If so where is it archived, under what name?

No, I do not read fanfic. I might every once in a while if someone forwards it to me, or if a friend is writing it. I did at one time, but not even much at that. As for my thoughts on it, I don't see any harm in it. Whatever floats people's boats. I would assume it helps people fine tune their writing skills? I'm not a writer, so I don't know.

What inspired you to make the DAWGToons? Did you open the message board for a bit of fun, or did you see a real need for one?

Well, I don't really consider the message board as part of DAWGToons. Chase of The NOROMO Love Page is a good friend of mine, so I told her I would set up and maintain a bulletin board for it. I set it up because I didn't really see the kind of indepth discussion of XF or 1013 that there once was on ATXF and the AOL XF boards.
