Ruth's Writing World was a personal fanfiction site.
I am fan fiction writer, and an occasional writer of essays and highly subjective reviews. You can receive updates on the general state of my writing life either through the notes from my life or through my LiveJournal. I do, of course have the requisite pages of pictures, links, and quotes. I'm quite proud of my quotes page, which has been featured in Dummies Daily on January 29, 1998, mentioned in The Hersh Web Observer on May 13, 1998, and linked to by the New Orleans Public Library.
Ruth Sadelle Alderson's Fan Fiction
Fan fiction is fiction written using the characters and worlds of TV shows and comic books, although other universes may also be used. Gen is fan fiction that doesn't concentrate on a sexual/romantic relationship. Het is fan fiction with a heterosexual relationship at the center. Slash is fan fiction which places characters of the same sex in a sexual and/or romantic relationship. Fictional Person Fic is fan fiction about fictional characters. Real Person Fic is fan fiction about real people such as actors, musicians, and other celebrities. I write both Fictional Person Fic (gen and slash; updated February 8, 2001) and Real Person Fic (gen, het, and slash; updated September 16, 2001). I've also been known to write essays (updated May 27, 2001), notes from my life (updated December 23, 2000), and snippets in my LiveJournal (off-site link; updated often). I maintain the metslash archive (off-site link; updated often) a list of fan fic links (updated May 27, 2001), a page about the slashiness of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (off-site link; updated rarely), and a down and dirty Fredlust page (off-site link). You might be wondering why I have no recs page.

Slash Specific Essays
Slash: Sex, Emotion, and Women's Writing. False parallels and explanations for why women write slash. This essay was written largely in reaction to an article about slash in the SF Gate. For a more general approach to some of the same themes, including a definition of slash, see my essay on Slash.
Male Inexpressiveness and Slash: A Moral Dilemma. For an explanation of slash, see my essay on Slash.
Slash. An old, and most likely out-dated, explanation I wrote about slash.
Lots of these.
Amatia's FPS and RPS. Matt/Ben, incest, slash, het.
Bliss. Excellent Metallica slash.
Cori Lannam. Yummy, yummy stuff.
Diana Williams. A humorous story that I admit I haven't read, but also the "Joined at the Soul" and "Chains of Desire" series, both M/Sk and the "Forging the Chains" series, Sk/m, m/m, and Sk/K.
Emily Brunson. Em writes Sports Night and Sentinel slash, as well as some fandoms I don't read. She's good at it.
Francesca. Francesca is writing the infamous Nature series as well as lots of other good Sentinel slash. Be sure to read "Bother," "I Had a Dream," and "Nothing On," as well as the Nature and Cycles series.
Halrloprillalar. A very interesting mix of mostly strange stuff, including Scully/Holly slash, a very weird Pendrell/Skinner series, and the marvelous Pendrell/Courtenay stories.
Hayz. Yummy Metallica slash.
Helen. Helen has written absolutely wonderful Sentinel and Sports Night slash. She's now been taken over by, shudder, NSync slash.
Hth. The author of "Thank You for Not Smoking," my favorite ScullySlash. Hth has also written other X-Files slash, as well as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Due South, and Xena slash.
Jane St. Clair. Very, very good slash and het.
Jessica Harris. Go read her "Towery City" stories. You'll be glad you did.
JiM. Mostly M/Sk, with some Krycek. If you go here, definitely read the Houseboat Variations. JiM and MJ occasionally co-write series in which each of them writes from a different character's perspective.
Josan. Josan writes tons of Sk/K and some M/Sk/K. And it's good, too.
Kassandra. Kassandra is a wonderful writer. Most of her stuff is M/Sk, including a novel, but there is some M/Sk/K, a Krycek/Pendrell series, and M/K babyfic.
Larissa. My partner in writing and an incredible author. Metallica slash, gen, het and other assorted Real People Fic.
Lianne Burwell. I started out reading her War of the Worlds/X-Files crossover, and moved on to the Once a Thief, La Femme Nikita and Eroica slash. The OaT series on her page introduced me to Eroica. (Thanks, Lianne!)
Merri-Todd Webster. Merri-Todd writes X-Files and Sentinel fic. She's working on the Cornerstone series, a K/WMM series, with MJ.
Miriam Heddy. Miriam writes Sports Night slash, which is enough to make me happy.
MJ. MJ has written three interesting psychological essays exploring slash writing. She also writes X-Files slash, mostly M/Sk, but some M/K, M/Sk/K, and L/B. MJ and JiM occasionally write interesting series in which they each write from a different character's perspective.
Nonie Rider. I highly recommend the "To the Hilt" stories, but be forewarned that they are rather dark and disturbing.
Pares. A very good writer. Especially near and dear to my heart because she writes L/B slash.
Perri Smith. One of the first authors whose writing I ever loved.
The Spike. You have to love anyone who writes gorgeous fic, including Iron Chef slash.
Te. Te writes unbelievably wonderful stuff. Lots of M/K, some Sk/K, some Langly/Byers, and some Pendrell/Krycek, along with Once a Thief, Sports Night, X-Men and Buffy slash.
torch. torch's most famous body of work is the North-West Passage novels which take a serious look at Mulder's abusive behavior toward Krycek, but torch has also written many other good stories, including some Voyager P/K stuff.
Viridian. Viridian writes all kinds of wonderful stories including the Weakness series which deals with a Mulder who has multiple personalities, the Addictions-Turnabout series which deals with Mulder as the victim of a kidnapper and Stockholm Syndrome, the Green Series which is a Mulder/Krycek/Pendrell series, as well as great stand alones, such as "But Do You Recall..." and "Affirmations." Be sure to check out the Once a Thief, Two Guys and a Girl, X-Men, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie) Pike/Benny slash.
