Scarlet is a slash author with a primary focus on Star Trek: TOS. Her website was The Scarlet Zone. She also had fiction posted at the COCO CHANNEL archive.

Fannish History

Scarlet writes about discovering fandom in a 1999 interview for COCO CHANNEL:

[I have been reading fanfic] since autumn 1998, when I got access to the Internet. I had heard about K/S printzines a few years before that and had figured out that they would have moved onto the web by then. [...] I roamed the net for several days before finding the Trekslash archive, since I didn't know words like fanfic, slash or treksmut. But when I finally got there -- I was like a child in a candy store.

Her first story was "How Thor Got His Hammer Back", which she describes as "a sort of humorous K/S A/U PG-13 thing." Karmen Ghia was her first beta reader; they met through ASCEM.[1]
