In addition to these fandoms, there are other series, novels, and such that I adore and follow religiously, but of which I am not involved in the fandom. To be honest, there are very few shows or novels that I have not checked out. Cos I really don't have a life.
Top pairings of the moment are:
--Doctor/Rose from Doctor Who (the RTD Era). They are my #1 OTP of ALL TIME. I may love many others, but they're all secondary to these two. Every time I re-watch them together, I fall in love all over again, and they make me want to hug my telly. It's quite a lame thing.
Note: My earlier stories have interesting plot lines, but they're not well executed or well written. And I am genuinely sorry about that. I was around 15 when they were being written, and they're not too bad for someone who never really attempted writing before they were posted. HOWEVER, I think/hope that I have gotten significantly better in the intervening years. So, feel free to read my early stuff, but just note that they're very amateur, and they will probably never be finished. I pretty much abandoned them all when I left for college and gave up writing for three and a half years. After I came back, I wanted to work on new things.
I very occasionally will write fanfics for films -- so far only Corpse Bride, but I hope to write some for Never Let Me Go and Nightmare Before Christmas too, at some point. My other favourite films include: To Kill a Mockingbird (my all-time favourite), The Goonies, Anastasia, Hold Your Man, the James Bond movie franchise, anything written or directed by JJ Abrams, anything written or directed by Joss Whedon.
I take a lot of inspiration from music, especially bands like Billy Joel and Alan Parsons Project. I don't write "song fics" anymore, but if you listen to the song that I may mention in my A/N as being my "muse," you might *possibly* get some idea of where my thought processes were coming from during the writing. I can't promise though cos emotional writing doesn't necessarily have to do with lyrics or anything like that.
I am working on the next chapter of Light at Lantern Waste, and have been for months really. I just am very ADD with fandom and my muse is obsessed with my DW/Fringe xovers on the rare times it decides to let me write. I also have had a job for the better part of a year and I do a lot of traveling, so writing doesn't get to happen as much for me anymore.
Other Things to Note: I am an Anglophile, as can be seen from my attempts to emulate British phrasing and spelling. I am also an historian, and an avid researcher. I have 93% mental recall, so most of the time I can keep things VERY canon when I'm writing. I once studied musical theatre, and I have a strong grasp on political philosophy, literature, and Christian Theology (Catholic and Protestant), and I like to write essays for fun. I'm an unlikely sci-fi nerd, but I am one nonetheless, and I also get quite into fantasy, though I don't find it quite as stimulating in the long run as I do sci-fi. I think I just really have a nerd-on for aliens. I also can have whole two hour conversations using nothing but quotes from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I know. I'm talented.
