As my pen name implies, I've been obsessive about Star Trek since it first aired in 1966 when I was 12. I enjoy all Star Trek but my first love (naturally) is TOS - and especially Spock. My kids have grown up with Star Trek in their DNA, and still tend to give me Star Trek stuff for my birthday and Christmas. Last birthday, I received a tribble!
I was initially wary of the reboot movie Star Trek (2009), but it has quickly been absorbed into my obsession - despite some reservations such as the relocation of Delta Vega from near the galaxy's edge in TOS to (very) near Vulcan in the reboot movie - not to mention that if Vulcan was that easilly visible from Delta Vega then Delta Vega was probably a 'moon' of Vulcan, even though '...Vulcan has no moon...' (ref TOS episode The Man Trap). I suppose Delta Vega could be T'Khut, but I don't think T'Khut is canon. Anyway, I'll cease my trekkie rant now...
I am mainly reading Star Trek 2009 currently, but will occasionally read a TOS story that piques my interest. I have a bit of a thing for Vulcans, so stories that appeal tend to feature Sarek/Amanda and/or Spock/Uhura. I don't read slash - I just can't bring myself to think of my first crush in those terms. I don't mind angst in the story but I tend not to bother reading stories that fail to meet my personal definition of a 'happy' ending. If I'm not sure where a story is headed, I tend to check to see if I find the last chapter 'satisfactory' before I commit to reading it. If it's a work-in-progress and I'm unsure whether I'll be happy at the end, I'll wait until it's been completed before continuing to read. Life's too short to be saddened by a piece of fiction.
Anyway, keep writing it. If I think it's any good I'll keep reading it.
I decided I should probably update my profile :-)
I've been reading primarily Pride & Prejudice stories for the past several years. I will always be a Trekkie, but at present my tastes turn elsewhere.
