Hello,

I am twenty-one. I live in Germany. I am fandom obsessed. I started reading on this site in early 2000, when the Harry Potter fandom had less than twenty six pages (50 fics a page) and the fics were in alphabetical order. There were no chapter options and the TOS was a lot different. I've stuck with this site since then, and while some of the changes I agree with whole-heartedly and some I think stink, I'll stay here until the end.

Currently, I'm comics obsessed. A lot of my comics fic (DCU, involving usually Tim or Jason and various pairings) is at my Live Journal, which you can find linked to in my homepage. It's mainly friends-only, but the final drafts of fic are always public. Rough drafts or ficlets are always friends-locked, but you're welcome to friend me and I'll add you back. Just drop me a line.

The fics I've posted here are from a large range of fandoms. I can tell you that the Harry Potter fics and Escaflowne fics will probably remain unfinished, as well as Times of Our Lives. The rest of the fics... who knows. I do want to finish at least Number the Stars, though. And recently after watching a lot of CSI, I thought about starting up Lighting Candles again. I do, however, assure you that Light House and Shattered Mirror will be continuedI've got bunnies again, now I just need the time to write them. Shattering of Stars also will probably be continued. And Wonderland is a one-shot. Please do not ask for it to be continued, because it won't be.

One of these days (as in once I get my computer to work again), I'll post a bunch of my DC fic from Live Journal. The majority are Tim/Cassie or involve either Tim or Jason, since I enjoy writing those two the most. I'm not a huge slash fan, but I do read it and have written it. My philosophy about pairings is this: I write what I want, you write what you want and no one forces the other to read. I do tend to the more non-canon pairings though (like Harry/Hermione and Alanna/Jon (Tortall)), though a few of my pairings i are /i canon (Tim/Cassie (Teen Titans), Danny/Sam (Danny Phantom)).

I'm a Chemistry Major, who really isn't sure what she wants to do with her life. I write fast, but I have the attention span of a goldfish, to quote a friend, and therefore when I get in the mood, I type long chapters and post them quickly...and then months go by with nothing. And being a Chem major in Germany...is incredibly time-consuming, so often I don't have the time to write. Therefore, please be forgiving if it takes awhile for me to update something.
