Hey howdy everyone. I can only assume that if you're reading this, you've enjoyed my work and were interested in learning a little more about me. I'm a twenty something with an all but useless BA desperately seeking employment and considering hiding from my student loans with grad school. I majored in public history and minored in religious studies, and this nerdery infuses my fandom work. I've done a lot of LGBT social history work and activism, and this informs my slash (I also write het, but not as prominently. Gay kid likes gay characters).

In addition to writing fan fiction, I'm also working on some original projects. I've had one story professionally published so far, called A Turning Point, and it's carried by MLR Press. I made a facebook page for my professional pen name, Valerie Myers, and this is the best way to follow my writing exploits, both fandom and professionally: http://www.facebook.com/valerie.maiers

The lovely IanPeriwinkle wrote the first ever A Turning Point fanfic and got a category set up for it here on ff.net. Please go check it out! I feel like a real author now :3 http://www.fanfiction.net/book/A-Turning-Point-Valerie-Myers/10/0/0/1/0/0/0/0/0/1/0/


I've done some beta-ing for a Young Justice writer. Please consider hopping over to xkyoxdiex's page and checking out her work. Giving writers encouragement is good for the soul :)


To anyone interested in my DC stuff: I'm attempting to get back into the swing of writing DC fic after a long absence. I had to come to terms with the fact that, despite my attempts not to be bitter, the reboot did break my heart a little. Most of my fics are pre-boot, because that is the DC I know and love. I might dabble with the reboot universe though. Again, I'm trying not to be bitter.

I'm pretty open about pairings (almost all of my fics will contain a romantic relationship of some kind), but here are my favorite ships: Piper/Trickster, Piper/Fury, Piper/James-the-architect, Piper/Nightwing, Piper/Weather Wizard, Wally/Linda, Piper/Wally, (Piper/Anyone, really), Roy/Dick, Black Canary/Oracle, Batman/Catwoman, Batman/Phantasm, Catwoman/Trickster, Ivy/Harley, Ivy/Cheshire, Roy/Jade, Damian/Lian, Damian/Jai, Booster/Beetle, Cassie/Cissie, Tim/Cassie, Tim/Conner K., Tim/Connor H. and probably a million more besides.

To anyone interested in my Harry Potter fics: These are currently on the backburner (although reviews and PMs might change my mind. I'm easily swayed). I've got some story ideas I've been sitting on, but I don't want to split my fandom attention in too many different directions at once.

To anyone interested in my Les Mis fics: This is the fandom receiving the most of my attention at the moment. I haven't posted much to ff.net yet, though I do intend to cross-post the rest at some point. Right now the majority of them are up on my AO3 account, which is also defying3reason. Consider checking out College Boys and High School Girls. I'm fandom-famous for that one ;)
