Author has written 13 stories for Friends, CSI, Alias, Bones, Castle, and Jurassic Park.
Huh. Figured it was about time to update this (especially since I've posted a new fic (!) and in a new fandom.
Not much to say. I've been on and off this site for many many many years. And it's definitely always been a bit of a guilty pleasure / escape from reality. I love that I can come here and find others who think (obsess) similarly to me and get a chance to spend a bit more time with characters I love.
Real life isn't always as good as it's cracked up to be, and so here I escape.
My love of fandoms comes and goes. Some are more nostalgic than anything at this point. And I often find many shows that I loved at the start, end up getting too pulled in one direction or another (or maybe it's laziness / aiming for the lowest common denominator) and I end up losing interest (Bones, CSI, Grey's are all examples of shows where this happened). I love shows that don't take themselves to seriously (Stargate, Firefly) and also shows that do dig into deeper questions (4400). Shows that seem to plan out / have story lines that continue across a season (or more) that are not just a relationship between characters, are always more interesting (ex - Alias, Veronica Mars, 4400). I've always been a mystery lover and science nerd, which is what pulled me to shows like Bones (I had read the novels before), CSI and Flashpoint.
Currently getting caught up in the Marvel universe of movies - although I'm mixed on some of the characters, and the fact that when females have been brought in, they don't get to headline, always more as back up / love interests. That said, ensembles like Guardians is a lot of fun (doesn't take itself seriously, and interesting mix of characters).
Also a big fan of Jurassic Park, since I saw it in theaters around 9 years old. Love Michael Crichton way of exploring moral and ethical questions, while making science accessible (and who doesn't like dinosaurs?). Jurassic World was a fun update to the franchise (much better than JP2 and 3). JW:FK I'm mixed on (need to go see it again), as it felt mostly like a 2 hour set up for the third movie (really hope they dig deeper into the ethical questions they raised).
And as much as I love stories that make me think, and plot twists, I will admit to being a bit of a romantic at heart, so do enjoy stories where that's a part of it - but I don't find it a necessary component to make a great story, in fact often times, when it becomes the main component, the rest of the story suffers. People don't usually have time for their love life (or lack of) to be the 80-90-100% focus of their lives. And so it shouldn't be in stories either. :)
Okay, long update. If you want to talk about any of the fandoms mentioned above, or anything, send me a message.
