Excerpts

[How long have you been a writer?]: Since I learned the alphabet. But only with intent since around fifth grade. A bad, bad rip of of Anne of Green Gables called Friends of Mine. Many Mary Sues, many Great Tragedies, and everyone wore silk dresses and fainted frequently. I was very young.
[What type of fanfic do you like to write?]: Type? Angsty, I think. Voyager-angsty...let's face it, this show begs for more pain for the hapless crew. I enjoy obliging. A little romance. P/T mostly, and some P/7, one J/P.
[How did you get started writing fanfic?]: A long summer without classes and getting internet access. Actually, it was the fault of Equinox I that did it, that and seeing 30 Days. I hadn't had much high hopes for Season V and my class schedule changed dramatically, so I'd stopped watching much TV at all, then did the Great Discovery and returned over the summer. It began with Jim Wright's review of Someone to Watch Over Me--it turned into camping out in Melanie's To Tell the Truth saga for days on end. I knew I was doomed, and figured I should try to write something. STWOM took control and I wrote a story about it. The slide began.
[How long have you been a Trek fan?]: Re-runs of TOS as a child after the after-school cartoons. The only one I never saw was Amok Time, which I finally got to see last year. Very nice. TNG solidified it big time--I was a regular Saturday-afternoon watcher until it went off the air and put an embargo on any future Trek programs I was so upset about its leaving. But I found Voyager, and am happy again.
