Hi, I'm Barbara, the ECQ (Evil Cliffie Queen - a nickname I earned during the posting of Déjà Vu on LiveJournal) It's a nickname I try to live up to, but I'm not-at-all serious about it. I am in my early 40s, female, and married with a gradeschooler. Here's a little about my fannish history:
Since summer of 2005, I have adored Spider-Man. First the movies, and then the comics. Somehow, in a very short time, I managed to read hundreds of Spider-Man comics. I've read the first few decades, and the last several years, but I'm still working on the 80s and 90s... Although after JoeQ's One More Day/Brand New Day fiasco, the changeover in USM and the end of Spider-Girl, I've stopped reading the current comics. I loved the Spectacular Spider-Man animated series, but couldn't get into the Ultimate Spider-Man, sadly. I did really enjoy The Amazing Spider-Man reboot, against all odds!
Then I started writing Superman. I've always loved the character, starting with the movies in 1978 and 1980 (I never saw the other two, and judging from the reviews, it's probably just as well). Then I avidly followed Lois and Clark the series, watched the DC cartoon, and have seen every episode of Smallville. In 2006, I got involved with Superman Returns fandom. For a while, I wrote a lot of Smallville Clois. I'm tentatively hopeful about Man of Steel based on interviews and the trailer. I guess we'll see!
Of course, most of my new friends know me for either Chuck, Big Bang Theory, Community, Breaking Bad or Ben and Kate -- TV fandom is my life now.
My most active fannish activity is as maintainer of(and the twitter and tumblr mirrors). Come join us if you love NBC's Community! I also moderate the less active and , as I am obsessed with the show. And my current multi-fannish home these days is . Come say hi!

Anything you produce in turn should feature a link back to my work and credit me by username, and you should also share the link to your work with me! It will serve two purposes: keep me abreast/informed, and make me really happy. I'd absolutely love to know about it.
If you are interested in meta, I wrote an essay discussing the issues in- I think the comments people left are really fascinating as well!
I also write for various other TV fandoms (which you can see in my "has authored XX stories list"), mostly because of writing birthday fics for LiveJournal friends, or for writing challenges. Some of my pieces are posted at AO3 exclusively. Soif you enjoy my writing. I also try to reply to every review I receive if possible (although I have not been able to sometimes), so feel free to ask questions or give constructive feedback! But please, I beg you, don't try to hand me your plot bunnies to adopt -- suggestions for story ideas will probably not be used.
