Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.

Over the years, this has been a ridiculously long bio of stuff nobody reads, a stupid half-threatening speech and about a million other variations. So now, I'll keep it simple:
I live in Scotland- and despite what my fruit-cocktail of accents might suggest, I've lived here my entire life. Sadly, thanks to parents that worked full time I learned to speak from English neighbours and Disney videos, so I don't sound all that native. Despite this, I will say right now that I am not English/American/Australian or from any-miscellaneous-country-in-Europe. I am Scottish born and raised.
I love to write and travel. Right now I'm currently backpacking through Australia for the second year. Internet is varied at best since I'm in the outback right now, so any updates or stories will be sporadic.
I started writing fanfiction . . . in late 2000/early 2001. My first fanfiction were (cringeworthy enough) Pokemon fics (Pen Name: Thundra_New_Dimension - Stories: New Dimension and Cataluna's Journey) on the 'Pokeflame' forum, which collapsed and disappeared, never to be seen again about a year later, and after our old computer imploded, these fics were lost to time (FYI, there was a really great 'own character' story there, can't remember names and such, but for a genre thats ten a penny it was really, really good. If anyone can remembers these old fics please let me know).
Then I moved on to Neopets with the penname Deadly_Dreamer, and became a Neopian Times Champion 15 times (3 stories). Sad to say, at the time I considered that the greatest achievement of my life. (by the by, 'Battle For Neopia', 'Sinicar's Revenge', and 'Pet Pets Strike Back' can still be read in the older archives of the Neopian Times).
However, by the time the last chapter of PPSB was going up, I had gotten bored with Neopets, mainly because the html for websites was driving me nuts, and I'd been scammed out of my original account. But mainly, because I found a site that was better for my addictiveness to anime and games and writing.
Fanfiction.net. It was introduced to me by my friend Onmyo-Ji Rina, and after several weeks of reading without an account, I signed up, and soon after, started posting in the Final Fantasy 9 section.
And the rest as one says, is history
Also, I don't write romance or yaoi - though I do read both. This is for two reasons.
1. I'm not very skilled at writing romance, and prefer friendship/brotherly bonds
2. Everyone else on the friggin planet DOES. I can't help but wonder how many people got in yaoi because it was the only thing available. So I write for those who are looking for something that wont end in a bed or on a mountain with a blanket.
With this in mind, please, please don't contact me asking if I'll put your favourite pairing into a fanfic. If its not canon (and I mean ACTUAL canon and not hinted-at-so-strongly-it-practically-IS-canon canon) - it doesn't go in.
