Biography

Snowgrouse has been involved in fandom since the 1990s. She mostly participates through meta discussion, writing fanfiction and creating fanart, in both digital and traditional media (she specialises in explicit photomanips).

Her fiction and artwork include slash, het and femslash with a leaning towards BDSM and historical romance. Her photomanips are characterised by their combination of extremely explicit sexual acts executed in a heavily chiaroscuroed, painterly style; equally. Her fanfiction is characterised by extremely explicit, lengthy sex scenes. She has described these as a deliberately genderqueering, feminist process of appropriating the explicit detail of visual pornography (aimed at straight men) and re-humanising it by lifting it to the emotional intensity and character depth of fan fiction (traditionally desired by women).[1] Snowgrouse is also a frequent panelist at the Redemption conventions in the UK. She advocates queer het both as a feminist exercise and as a way to challenge the boundaries of gender and sexuality. From Redemption 2015 panels onwards, she has championed the term "ravishment" as a more appropriate term to describe erotic non-con fiction (where the seduced partner is enjoying it) to distinguish it from true rape.
