What does Beshter mean?
Beshter is the Persian name for the Archangel Michael, "who is like El (God)". Not that I'm particularly God-like, but don't you ever get that feeling when writing a good story?
Red hair and nasty temper aside, I think that is about all the similarity Michael and I have, but I'm rather fond of the fellow and hope to include him in a future, original story of mine sometime soon. But in the meantime I write my fanfic. Much of it as you see is X-files, but some of it is other other fandoms I happen to enjoy, including Harry Potter, Star Wars, Robotech, White Collar, and Dr. Who (my current crack...er...obsession).
I lived in Hampton, Virginia and Milan, Missouri before moving as an adult to the Los Angeles area, and if any of those places sound more fleshed out in my fanfics, it's because I know them well, (Southern California usually gets a shameless nod from me). Personally I am Historian and Theologian by education, (with a BA in History and two MA's in Theology), and am currently melding the two disciplines together as I am starting a Ph.D. in the History of Christianity. My dissertation shall be all about Romans, Christians, violence, martyrs, salvation, very deep stuff. Now you know why I write fanfic...and also why I have so many typos and grammar problems, cause I seriously sometimes just do not want to take the time after having to edit my academic papers.
Fanfiction is my distraction from the deep stuff, and it is cheaper than stocking up on trashy romance novels, (do not knock it, that's how I memorized all the monarchs of England and Great Britain since William the Conqueror AND how they are related to each other). Given my love of history and research, and a deep and abiding interest in what goes on behind the scenes of any story, I have this mad obsession with fitting the pieces of what and why together. My love in fanfiction centers on that need to dig beneath the story we know, to see what is going on under the surface, and to play with the obvious, to go deeper. I don't tend to play far afield in the AU territory, but from time-to-time I can be found there.
For my X-files fanfiction, you can read all my stories as singular chapters on livejournal dot com, look for 1breath. For all other stories I post exclusively here. My current story is Tangled Strings, my current Doctor Who fic, the sequel to Strings Attached. I haven't forgotten my X-files stories, and maybe, one day, Scully will start speaking to me again.
NOTE: I do not, as a rule, accept guest comments, (unless you identify yourself in the comment), nor do I accept comments complaining about the speed at which I update. Depending on the season, my writer's block, and my busy schedule, I post faster at some times than others. This is my hobby, not my life, so please keep that in mind and have patience. Also, if you wish to snark on grammar, please have the guts to do that in a PM. I often will not notice those things.
