Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter, and Chronicles of Narnia.

Hi.

It's either ramble or be brief. For once, I'll be brief (at least about myself). I'm female, I live in England, I don't want to mention my age, I respond to the name Gazzy but it isn't my actual name, I have some insane friends, I am personally rated For (Im)Mature Audiences Only.

Fandom wise, I tend to jump all over the place. Right now, the fandoms I'm mainly following are

Angel/Buffy The Vampire Slayer - So. Much. Pretty

Bones - Who says crime solving can't be pretty?

Merlin - Ditto above.

Supernatural - I think my insides have turned to mush with this show's combination of awesomeness/sexiness.

General Fandoms

Chronicles of Narnia - Childhood fandoms, oh how easily you are broken.

Harry Potter - Up until Book 5.

Labyrinth - Shiny!

And that is a short summery of me.

On Fandom

Fandom is focus. Fandom is obsession. Fandom is insatiable consumption. Fandom is sitting for hours in front of a TV screen a movie screen a computer screen with a comic book a novel on your lap. Fandom is eyestrain and carpal tunnel syndrome and not enough exercise and staying up way, way past your bedtime.

Fandom is people you don't tell your mother you're meeting. Fandom is people in the closet, people out and proud, people in costumes, people in T-shirts with slogans only fifty others would understand. Fandom is a loud dinner conversation scaring the waiter and every table nearby.

Fandom is you in Germany and me in the US and him in Australia and her in Japan. Fandom is a sofabed in New York, a roadtrip to Oxnard, a friend behind a face in London. Fandom talks past timezones and accents and backgrounds. Fandom is conversation. Communication. Contact.

Fandom is drama. Fandom is melodrama. Fandom is high school. Fandom is Snacky's law and Godwin's law and Murphy's law. Fandom is smarter than you. Fandom is stupider than you. Fandom is five arguments over and over and over again. Fandom is the first time you've ever had them.

Fandom is female. Fandom is male. Fandom lets female play at being male. Fandom bends gender, straight, gay, prude, promiscuous. Fandom is fantasy. Fandom doesn't care about norms or taboos or boundaries. Fandom cares too much about norms and taboos and boundaries. Fandom is not real life. Fandom is closer than real life. Fandom knows what you're really like in the bedroom. Fandom is how you would never, could never be in the bedroom.

Fandom is shipping, never shipping, het, slash, gen, none of the above, more than the above. Fandom is love for characters you didn't create. Fandom is recreating the characters you didn't create. Fandom is appropriation, subversion, dissention. Fandom is adoration, extrapolation, imitation. Fandom is dissection, criticism, interpretation. Fandom is changing, experimenting, attempting.

Fandom is creating. Fandom is drawing, painting, vidding: nine seasons in four minutes of love. Fandom is words, language, authoring. Fandom is essays, stories, betas, parodies, filks, zines, usenet posts, blog posts, message board posts, emails, chats, petitions, wank, concrit, feedback, recs. Fandom is writing for the first time since you were twelve. Fandom is finally calling yourself a writer.

Fandom is signal and response. Fandom is a stranger moving you to tears, anger, laughter. Fandom is you moving a stranger to speak.

Fandom is distraction. Fandom is endangering your job, your grades, your relationships, your bank account. Fandom gets no work done. Fandom is too much work. Fandom was/is just a phase. Fandom could never be just a phase. Fandom is where you found a friend, a sister, a kindred spirit. Fandom is where you found a talent, a love, a reason.

Fandom is where you found yourself. hesychasm @ livejournal, in lieu of life.

Because I did.

Build Me Up, Tear Me Down: I have not abandoned this story, I promise. Updates are very infrequent but it has not been abandoned. I have long, rambly plans for this thing I just got somewhat uninspired when I lost part of it, although I still have most of it and all the plans.
