Author has written 7 stories for Kim Possible, Shakespeare, and Muppet Show.
General Franco is still dead (I suppose nowadays I have to explain that that's a very old Saturday Night Live joke). Also, I'm still almost entirely based at AO3 for fanfictional purposes.
The specific reason for this update is to mention that one of my stories - and specifically, one of the very few I didn't port to AO3 on account of its being incomplete - has been performed on a recent episode (#11, to be specific, released just a few weeks ago) of the Stranger Than (Fan)Fiction podcast. This was A Midsummer Day's Nightmare, featuring Kermit and company attempting Shakespeare...and Gonzo running afowl of a faerie spell. [No, I'm not going to apologize for that one...]

I'm a longtime fan of many genre sf/f, mystery, and animated TV series and films, who wandered into the greater community of fanfic writers early in the run of Kim Possible and have been playing in various sandboxes ever since. Shows I've enjoyed go as far back as the Adam West Batman series and the original Maverick, range widely (Remington Steele to Gargoyles to Knight Rider to the Muppet Show), include the moderately obscure (Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?) and such programs as Jackie Chan Adventures, Veronica Mars, Smallville, Castle, and just about all the animated incarnations of Batman. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it will do for a start.
What originally drew me to was chiefly the strong community of Kim Possible writers. I've been reading their work for some time now, and finally decided that I needed to sign up with FF in order to properly acknowledge my respect for much of what they've created.
Most of what's here focuses on Kim Possible, though I have wandered in a couple of other directions. A few words about my KP interests and biases are probably in order:
1. I am pairing-flexible; I will read K/R and Kigo with equal interest, provided the stories are well-written. If the characterization is good, I'll grant a writer a lot of working room, and I find a number of the nonstandard and minor-character pairings interesting and entertaining. As to what pairings I'm likely to write: the "Sitch in Slash" series reflects a lot of my thinking about Kim and Shego without actually being Kigo, and I have begun a completely different series exploring the Kim/Ron/Yori triangle.
2. As the preceding comment may indicate, I value good writing very highly, though I also recognize some of the constraints inherent in the fanfic process. (Note that "good writing" is not limited to sentence structure, proofreading, and so on; the best writers, whether fanfic or pro, are simply better at using the language than many of the rest of us.)
3. I diverge from apparent fannish consensus on a couple of points of KP mythology, most notably the location of Middleton. It seems to me that Middleton ought logically to be roughly equidistant from Florida (and Nana Possible's retirement home) and Montana (site of the Crooked D Ranch). Colorado just doesn't fit those criteria; my best guess would put Middleton somewhere along the Indiana/Ohio border. Prior to Season 4's canonization of Ann as Mrs. Dr. Possible's first name, I'd also developed my own theory on that point; for details, see the notes at the very end of I Suppose This Means They Read the Fanfic.
