Author has written 5 stories for Glee.
I'm known by friends and family as Dasher. I think it's cute, so I don't mind it. I'm a 20 year old gay male from the beautiful country of New Zealand, though I now live, work and play in Australia. Western Australia to be more specific, but that's as specific as I'm gon' give you LOL.
Family has and always will be the most important thing to me. I com from a huge family and we're all very close. Disgustingly close, actually :P Part of why we're all so close is because we're all honest, loyal and open-minded and accepting people. I know that I'm blessed with such an amazing family, so I never ever take any of them for granted. We talk, we fight, we argue, but we never let that get in the way of our love for each other.
I consider myself a very creative person, and love expressing myself through different means. I sing, which I'm actually really good at. My mind is like an iPod always on shuffle, and I will sing and dance wherever I am, whenever the mood strikes. And the mood strikes OFTEN, believe me :P My voice has been likened to that of a certain cute former boyband member known by millions as Kevin McHale! Music is such a large part of my life, and I'm grateful for it. Any type of music, whichever genre, has the ability to move and connect and touch so many people in many different ways.
I also dance, and did train all during High School. I'm not the best dancer by far, but I love the freedom and thrill that it provides. I haven't completed with my dancing since I was 16, but still can get down with the get down! The beauty and majesty that dance and dancers (hot Asian dancers by the name of Harry Shum Jnr!) move me just as much as music does.
Fashion and design are always a passion of mine. I can't draw or sketch to save myself, but I have great vision and the things that I mentally design usually come out looking and feeling just as I had imagined. I'm more so into interior design and furniture creation now, but am studying fashion design and pattern-making. But really, all design falls under the same large umbrella. And it helps to be able to have a hand in every basket, so to speak.
Writing is yet again, another hobby I enjoy. The ability to create worlds of locations and characters is simply amazing. You can lose yourself in words and phrases of a good book or story. Transport yourself to another world right in the comfort of wherever it is that you're reading.
I'm scarily obsessed with Glee. I have every CD and DVD they have ever put out. I've been known to buy a magazine or two whenever one of the cast members are in it. And I often wish I were American just to be able to watch the show whenever it first airs there! I'm also super pissed that they didn't come down under for the tour, and a Uni student with an alcohol problem just can't afford to be flying everywhere to see it.
Though not always consistent with the storylines, it still manages to bring a wide smile to my face whenever I hear or see anything Glee-related. The comedic genius and amazing one-liners coupled with the joy of song and dance never fails to draw me in, and ultimately I'm able to see Glee for what it is; AWESOMESAUCE!
Having said that, I do know that there are problems with teh show. It seemed like during season 2, the writers always hit a reset button after every episode, as if nothing from the previous episode happened. It was extremely frustrating! This season 3 is shaping up to be a great one though, and it seems that the new staff of writers have really stepped they game up and remedied what was wrong with the show in the second season. We're getting more plot development and more character interaction and development, within it having to compromise on amazing musical numbers. It's win/win/win!
My second favourite character by far is Miss. Brittany S.Pierce! Brittany brings the funny every time, and always has me in stitches, but then she can turn around and throw down her dancing and I'm the first on my feet rooting that girl on! She's beautiful, hilarious and can ove like nobodies bussiness. Almost enough to make this gay boy wanna switch teams...almost...
But then I see Cory Montieth, Matthew Morrison, Darren Criss, Mark Salling, Kevin McHale, Harry Shum Jnr, Chris Colfer and of course Mr. Chord Overstreet! int they just a whole bunch of pretty?! And yes, I listed them from attractiveness, Cory being the least (though still very!) attractive to me, while Mr. Overstreet is just out-of-this-world hotness!
And then there;s my most favourite characters, which is, of course, Mr. Kurt Elizabeth Hummel! Not just because Chris Colfer kills it in the acting department (he was robbed of them Emmy's!) but because the character is so deeply me that I couldn't not love him. Seriously, it's like the writers took me and transplanted it into Kurt's character. There are so many parallels between us that I'm not even going to name them. He brings me to tears, makes me laugh, makes me cringe at times and usually all within the same episode! I love Chris Colfer dearly for bringing Kurt to life. And I will always love and hold Kurt dear to my heart. We fierce bitches gots ta stick together, after all :P
All hail Fanfiction.net!
In a weak bid to limit myself on this amazing site, I have rules. First, I only ever read in the Glee fandom. My home-fandom if you will. There are exceptions, such as if a friend or a loyal reviewer asks of me to read their fic then I will gladly check their work out. Mostly though, I keep in my home-fandom and very rarily stray. My second rule is that I only ever read Kurt-centric fics. Again, there are those exceptions, but for the most part it's Kurt's way or the highway!
Even then, being the the Glee fandom and only reading Kurt-centric stories, I have further limitations. And those limitations usually revolve around Shipping.
Sam and Kurt are my OTP. They are the peanut butter to my jelly, the Dolce to my Gabbana, the Oprah to my Gayle. I fell in love with them during the hiatus between season 1 and season 2 when Ryan Murphy promised us that Kurt would get a boyfriend, will be popular and together they'd be the power couple of McKinley High School. Then Jane Lynch let slip the identity of said boyfriend to Kurt, and I think that's when Ryan went into panic mode and changed things up! He shipped off Sam to Quinn, subsequenly leading to Kurt being bullied more, having to leave McKinley and go to some disambiguous private school who apparently have no teachers, and meet Blaine. I held out hope that Sam was at least Bisexual when he got together with Quinn, and I still hold that hope. But even if it doesn't happen in canon, it does happen here on this site, so it's all good.
Besides, my headcanon totally dictates that Sam and Kurt meet up in their college years, fall madly in love with each other then and live happily ever after in pure Hevans!
Having announced my love for Hevans, I must admit that I'm a whore, and ship Kurt with anyone. He deserves love, and why shouldn't he have as much relationships as canon characters such as Rachel or Finn or Puck? Kurt and Puck? HOT! Kurt and Matt? Awesome! Kurt and Santana? Two bitches, One Bed! Kurt and Mike? Fred and Ginger epicness! Kurt and Me? Oh, did I say that out loud? My bad...Kurt and Karofsky are the only pairing I will never ever read ever! Just...no!
I don't ship Klaine, however. Don't get me wrong, I love Darren Criss. He's a fantastic performer, and a great guy from the interviews and stuff that I've seen of him. I'm a huge AVPM/AVPS fan and can recite those shows like a boss. But i am not too fond of Blaine. He's too...not good enough for Kurt. The writers gave Kurt and Blaine the runaround for so long. First he was obliviously flirting with our male diva, then he was just plain oblivious come Silly Love Songs. Some alcohol made him question his sexuality, something that he was so sure of when he was first introduced. A confident gay teen questioning everything you've known about yourself after a few beers? What a light-weight! Then finally falling for Kurt after his bird dies? *gives side eye*. The Kliss was cute and all, and I'm glad Kurt finally got his man, but it's just not my thing.
With that in mind, I will always treat their canon relationship with respect. In my stories, Kurt always loves Blaine, as does Blaine Kurt. I will always have that kinship between the two characters, even though Kurt will be paired with another character. Because I respect the writers and love that Kurt is happy with the boy he longed for for so long, it's the least I can do since I don't ship them two.
Herein lays the limitations with which I choose potential reading material on this site. I very rarely read Klaine fics. It has to e really good for me to bother reading it. And side=pairings are instrumental to whether I'll read it too, sadly. I loath it when stories have every male character in a slash pairing. I don't even know why I dislike it so much. Perhaps it's because of my thinking that if a guy doesn't want Kurt then he sure as hell doesn't want any other dude. It's completely irrational and stoopid, but that's how I feel LOL. Even if the side pairing in only mentioned in passing, it can really put me off of the fic.I have issues, I know!
Everyone's tastes are different, and that's a good thing. I completely respect everyone's personal opinions and tastes, as I demand the same level of respect. To each one their own.
The Second Life Of Kurt Hummel - This was my first story and I didn't know where the hell I was going to go with it when I started it. I had an idea for a Vampire story and had written the first chapter to post over on FictionPress, but decided i'd change the characters around to fit Glee. I now know where I'm taking it, and it scares me because I feel like it;s going to be one long-ass story. It'll involve some family secrets, a battle between good and evil, and a fair share amount of Puck and Kurt smut. Show me your teeth baby!

Afternoon Delight - Stupid title, right? It was the song I was listening to while writing the first chapter, and I was too lazy to come up with something else. Anyway, this story was basically an excuse for me to get my smut on. I wanted to write some hot sex scenes involving my OTP and write some kink stuff in there since this site is lacking in fetish fics. It also incorporates a few of my own personal experiences. I'm personally proud of he story, since two or my three favourite authors have read and liked it. Dear Near Scary and gleefulmusings seem to be into it, and that makes me extremely glad! And who doesn;t love some Kurt/Sam fucking? Like the song that inspired the title of the fic says, "Thinking of you is working up my appetite", that's exactly what those two do to me.

No Ordinary Glee Club - I love the superpowered!Glee Club fics and wanted to write my own, but couldn't think of a good enough origin arc until I saw No Ordinary Family. Everything clicked in my head and I jumped on the bandwagon and posted it as a semi-cross-over with that show and Glee. Some characters from NOF will be introduced later on, notably Katie and JJ. I also wanted to re-introduce Matt and thought what better way to do that by hooking him up with kurt. Not much is known about Matt, and since he left the show, he's pretty much an OC really, so I'm able to give him my own characteristics. I was also wanting to explore the canon couples, especially Santana and Brittany. And because Hevans is my OTP, Sam will be Kurt's close friend in this story, like he should be in the show! It hasn't seemed to have gotten the reception I thought it would, and it's easily the least popular story of mine, but I like it and I enjoy writing it.

Elizabeth - I'm completely overwhelmed y the response this fic has gotten! It started off as just an idea I received after talking to a friend of mine whose mother had kicked her out when she had come-out as a lesbian when she was younger. I thought it'd be interesting to see what Burt and Kurt's relationship would be like if something like that had happened to them. It was also my first foray into Hurt/Comfort, because I sure as hell couldn't pull off angst! I enjoy writing it and hope everyone enjoys reading it.

Honey And Nut Meg - A little one-shot that I came up with after visiting my brother on his birthday. We've always had a great relationship and after leaving his house that day I felt compelled to writ something family.brotherly oriented. And I thinks it's interesting that Kurt and Finn are now brothers and wanted to delve into their new relationship. Honey and Nut=meh milk is actually almost always present during family discussions in my family. That or alcohol, but meh LOL. I'm quite proud of this little drabble :)
