Author has written 13 stories for StarTrek: The Original Series, Harry Potter, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, StarTrek: Voyager, Sherlock Holmes, Jeeves, Hunger Games, and Star Trek: 2009.

Oh my god most of the stories here are ridiculous and awful, but I'm not taking them down because I refuse to be embarrassed by my novice writings. Well, I'm still a novice I suppose. Read them if you want to--no guarantees as to quality!

Fan fiction is becoming a lifelong hobby of mine, not so much as a writer, but as a reader and as a defender of the art form. If you also fit this category, I have some recommendations for you:

Henry Jenkins's blog "Confessions of an Aca-fan" which delves into many aspects of fan culture, including fan fiction

and also his books, especially "Textual Poachers."

Constance Penley's book "NASA/Trek" which explores the history and psychology behind slash fan fiction, especially the Kirk/Spock phenomenon

The Organization for Transformative Works, which advocates for the legality of fan fiction, among other things (scholarly essays about fan fiction and other transformative works, an open archive, a wiki history of fan fiction)

And check out Free Culture and Creative Commons...also public domain and copyright law if you've the inclination.

Mastery of the Unavoidable by Sethos reviews
This was written way back, after I'd found the first KirkSpock slash on the emerging Internet. Set between the first and second movie; works on the premise of an "established relationship".

The Demon of Beta 55 by Sethos reviews
Even before the Internet, I first heard about fan fiction and 'classic' KS slash. This is my take on it, written in 1993. I'd never even read fan fiction...

Idle Flights of Fantasy by Sara6 reviews
At first he tried to pass them off as the results of a twisted subconscious, but eventually he realized that it’s not technically dreaming if you’re not asleep. H/D slash.

Children of the Sun
After a diplomatic mission to Gorn goes south, Spock displays some uncharacteristic emotions. KirkxSpock, obviously, with some SpockxUhura and unrequited McCoyxKirk. Eventually other pairings as well, perhaps. I'm working on incorporating more action.

The Ecstasy of Elegy reviews
Spock meditates on Kirk's death. Earlier "coming back from the dead" thing is a reference to Amok Time, when Spock believes Kirk to be dead for about five seconds. Kind of silly pretentious stuff, I'm sure, but I wrote it...four years ago? KS, of course.

Sherlock Holmes and the Eventual Tentacles 1? reviews
A silly bout of IMing with a friend led to this ridiculousness. As the title advertises, there will eventually be tentacles. Possibly tentacle sex. I feel it is my duty to comply with rule 35 of the internet.

The Slayer With Raccoon Eyes
Story set in a world with Buffyverse mythology, all original characters. K plus for now but as themes develop this may change. Vignettes for now. Some gay characters and themes, nothing explicitly sexual planned.

Sectumsempra: Cut Off, Forever reviews
Don't be misled by the main character categories: Hermione isn't actually in this. Main character is a bemused Muggle college student who finds herself, inexplicably, in the body of a 12 year old witch Hermione. UNFINISHED, likely to remain so.
