even though i'm not sure why anyone would visit my profile page i thought i ought to put something up, so here goes:
i'm an early twenties, umbrella eschewing, coffee-addicted, part time student whose 'thing' for older (and especially british) men feeds quite nicely into my voracious appetite for Sherlock, Harry Potter, Torchwood, Doctor Who and Spooks/MI-5 fics involving, well, older (british) men! i've got an extremely open mind so i'm up for canon, AU, slash, het, angsty, lemony, kinky, (curly?), long, short (thick, thin?) and just about anything in between-- as long as it's relatively well written.
i've never mustered up the courage to post what i write, but for those of you out there who have, and who do it oh so well-- i salute you. and if you're on this site (or OWL or ashwinder) and would like to chat go ahead and PM me. i'm not the greatest conversationalist, but i'll definitely (try to) get back to you.
see you around!
mo. aka. watin77.
ps. oh, also, i realize that i have a lot--as in, a plethora--of favorite stories. i'm a prolific reader and there are just so many stories on here that i've liked. however, i do realize that not all the stories i've put on my favorites are written at the same caliber. that being said... some of the stories that have stood out to me recently are:
sherlock (the BBC tv series)
most of my favorite sherlock fics are on my AO3 profile using this same handle (watin77) or my tumblr (esendoran.tumblr.com). the sherlock stuff i've read here, though, includes anything by corvidcoccinelle, jennistar1, verityburns, sodakey, ardenteurophile, princessnala, atlin merrick, blind author, emmylou, or rosieg.
