I came into fandom on the trail of the killers of my father, and for reasons which don't bear exploration at this juncture, have remained? Er -- okay, not exactly, let me try that again. :-)

I've been a part of media fandom since 1999, when Sandy Justine showed me her Sentinel stories alongside my first episodes of the show. (The first one I saw was "Warriors." Indians in Tevas! ::love::) I wrote a few pieces of fanpoetry (Sentinel sonnets) and then took the plunge into writing fanfiction.

Sanj was totally my enabler -- she showed me my first vids (assorted Media Cannibals favorites, plus "I'm Only Happy When It Rains" -- I was a feral X-Files fan well before I knew about fandom.) Anyway. I was a Sentinel mono-fan for years. Once upon a time I was active on FCA-L and Prospect-L (remember mailing lists?), and I also belonged to TLAD and Senad (briefly) back in the day.

From there, I moved into due South fandom; the buddy dynamic between Fraser and Ray (both Rays) reminded me of what I'd loved in Sentinel. My other biggest fandom over the years has been Stargate: Atlantis, though I've also had intense flings with Harry Potter, House, MD, Firefly, Veronica Mars, Friday Night Lights, and Lost. Also an assortment of Yuletide fandoms.

I joined LiveJournal in 2002, and have been a part of lj-based fandom ever since. I think that was the year after I started going to Escapade. These days I'm also a big fan of Vividcon and Muskrat Jamboree. In 2009 I got an account at Dreamwidth and currently consider that my primary journal, though am still fairly active on both dw and lj.

I started vidding in 2008, with tremendous help and encouragement from a lot of people. I still feel like my learning curve is quite steep, but I love vidding like crazy and I'm so grateful for my friends who audience and beta and generally encourage my vidding! (While I'm at it: I'm also grateful for everyone who's beta-read my fic over the years too. Y'all are awesome.) So far I've released vids in SGA, Lost, and Friday Night Lights -- plus a festivid in an a fandom I can't mention yet!

Oh, and if you're looking for my fanworks, you can find them on my website; you can also find all of the fic at my AoOO page, and my vids are available on trickster and at BAM Vid Vault and at (links above in the infobox.)

I'm a member of the Organization for Transformative Works.

Everything I have written or created is fair game for further transformative work, including, but not limited to: podfic, remix, sequels, meta, fanart, reviews, and commentaries. Just credit me for the part of the work that I did, and let me know if you get a chance!
