Rhys, also known as Tangerine, is a prolific and widely loved author in popslash and has been writing in the X-Men Comicverse fandom since the 1990s.

As Tangerine, most of her stories are about the (now) canon pairing of Rictor/Shatterstar.

As Rhys, her fiction covered just about every possible pairing of 'N Sync members, with a few forays into Backstreet Boys; she even wrote a story featuring Trevor from O-Town (a rarity among popslashers.) The stories' genres also cover the map; Rhys wrote AUs, hurt/comfort, MPREG, genderfuck, humor, and kink. Her website was originally part of the popslash collective on Illuminations.nu. A fan of Chris Kirkpatrick in particular; most of her popslash stories feature him as a main character.

From her AO3 profile:

I've been involved in fandom, off and on, since 1996. I started in X-Men Comicverse, switched over to popslash under the name Rhys, switched back, dabbled briefly in Dead Zone (TV), then came back to X-Men Comicverse, focussing primarily on X-Factor (Vol 3.) and X-Force (Vol. 1). Rictor/Shatterstar remains my most persistent OTP, and I write about them a lot. A ridiculous amount, really.

Rhys currently writes exclusively under the name Tangerine, which was the name she originally used back in the mid-90s when posting on BBSs about the X-Men. Her most recent fics are for My Hero Academia.
