Hey! I'm butterflie. Sort of a silly penname, I suppose, but I've had it since 2003 and it's rather become a part of me. And just to get it out of the way: I'm thirty, female, and I live in the Southern-ish United States. I also obviously like fanfiction. A lot. I've been into it since early 2000, when I first discovered it while looking for gundamwing images. Actually to be precise, some friends and I googled "wufei's head" and a gundamwing slash fanfic (Duo's First Kiss) is what popped up... Woo-hoo, corruption. I've never quite been the same since. Err. Not that I'm complaining.
As regards to fandom...
Fanfic preferences, well... I have them of course, but I'm pretty open-minded about most things. I like both slash and het, and over the past few years I've developed a huge love for genfic. I fully sympathize with those who say there isn't enough gen in fandom. To me, there can never be enough. (So why do I still write mostly slash/pre-slash...? Even I don't know.) I highly adore angst, and also don't have a problem with most kinks. Pretty much the only things I stay away from at all costs are mpreg, genderbending just for the sake of genderbending (trans is fine), and certain pairings that just don't sit right with me.
The early days
I have an older account on here; if you are interested in reading incredibly bad gundamwing fanfiction, you can check it out at the ID 12443, penname Twilight Nuriko. In regards to fic deletions: I rarely delete old fics that I hate, because I know what it's like to remember a fic you used to be fond of, decide you want to read it again, and go back to find it gone. The few I did delete, I regret. While I'm not going to bother reposting them, I'm willing to send anyone who wants one copies of old fics, provided that I still have computer copies available. Send me a PM with your email and preference of .wpd (wordperfect) or html format, and I'll email it to you. All I ask is that you don't redistribute it on the internet in any way.
Read and Review?
My review policy pretty much is: I don't. Every once in a while I may leave one, but it's rare. I've become really disillusioned with this aspect of fandom over the years, and now I just don't. Please don't take it personally. Trust me, if I favourite your story, I enjoyed it quite a bit. Don't be fooled by the amount of favourites, I don't favourite even half of what I actually read.
So I story-alerted your fic...
Yeah, I know. I'm horrible about updating. I'd say I'm sorry, except, well, I'm really not. Other than that mild lingering sense of guilt. But if you can't handle waiting months or years for an update, or perhaps the possibility of never getting an update, simply don't read the story. Personally, I'm always glad of the chance to have a partial story than to have no story at all, but I know not everyone feels that way. I do try to finish all my stories, and the ones I know I won't ever finish I make sure to mark as discontinued. Anything else, I still intend to finish if I can. Eventually. Someday. I just seem to have hit a huge writing slump, and hate forcing my writing. It always comes out horrible. You can check my website for notes on what I intend to finish and where I'm at.

Most of my formatting in my fics has been completely borked over the years thanks to ffnet's stupidity. I'm probably not going to fix it. Try one of the links above for better formatted versions.
This is complete! I intend to go back through and revise a bit, polish it up some, and then post it at AO3 and possibly here as well, replacing the old version. For now you can read the completed "rough draft" at my fic livejournal (link above).
