"They're making stuff up!" - Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor
I'm a 20-something Christian who somehow manages to be employed in writing and editing. I also have thisVideo games about people falling out of spaceships are my weakness. Been a Star Wars fan since about when I started this account (and it's both reassuringly familiar and weird that I've been here over 10 years, and have seen almost no changes in the look of the site or the nature of its impersonal, mysterious admins.) My writing is plot- and action-heavy, although since getting into Red vs Blue I have been forced to become passable at dialogue and humor. Likewise, since I stopped doing karate I write less punching. Once upon a time I was an outspoken non-shipper, but then Mass Effect happened and everything went downhill from there.
I've also been a Halo fan since the early 2000s, and follow the expanded universe with a sort of addicted shame. I think that Halo's EU has done a really, really good job of expanding on scintillating concepts about artificial intelligence and subterfuge, but in every book there's a line that makes me just laugh because it's so hilaribad.
Once upon a time, I refused to watch Red vs Blue on account of it being too crass and too popular. Then, I house-sat in Arizona for a month with a RvB fan from Texas, and it was 113 degrees out so we had to do something in the afternoon, so we watched. Now I can't even talk about states any more.
When I ship, I ship hard, and exclusively (except for Tex), but everything's T-rated. Blood and torture sometimes happen, but not a lot of gore. I tend to err on the higher side when I rate my fics, just in case. I don't have anything against slash pairings any more, but I haven't found any that I love, and the exclusivity thing sometimes makes appreciating non-canon ones difficult.
The world needs more gen fics about ladies.
-- Once upon a time I shipped OCs with Star Wars characters, but now the fandom most important to me is the one in which I have no active ships. I like a lot of player/character pairings in KotOR, the most lasting of which has been LSFExile/Sion, but don't think about the games much any more except with a passionate, nostalgic appreciation. Legends is Legends now and that's all there is to it, although I may continue to set my fics in some fusion of Legends and canon. We'll see what happens when TFA comes out. My favorite character is Darth Maul, and while I headcanon him as asexual, I do support Maul/Kilindi while it lasted.
-- In Halo I primarily care about Reach and Jorge/femSix, although I have a longstanding fondness for Master Chief and his lucky, brutal method of problem-solving.
-- For Mass Effect: Joker/femShep/Normandy. Shepard loves him and he loves her and part of both of them died when the SR-2 did, because they loved her with an unhealthy, nonsexual love that overrides and influences everything else they do. I like this because it's so much fun to write and because Shokermandy is fun to say. ManShep/Jack is good too. It's apparent in some of my older fics that I had a thing for Garrus, but somewhere along the way that disappeared. Sometimes I ship femShep/Vega, and sometimes he's the Shepard to her Anderson. Tali/Kal'Reegar happened in my headcanon.
-- For Red vs Blue: Wash/CT. Oh gosh, Wash/CT. Angry, mistrusting, violent, smart, ultimately loving Wash/CT in either canon or one of several alternate universes. I believe that she never had a romantic attachment to the Insurrectionist Leader, but was willing to let him think she had one when she desperately needed help. Years later, I am still so deep in denial about the fact that she died that it always takes a moment for me to internalize it again. If I ever say something that implies she was the soldier wearing the brown armor in the desert, that's why (and also she totally was.)
Mumblybee ships Yorkalina, and therefore I do as well. Tex/Church is important, but I went through a Tex/Sarge phase.
Red vs Blue combines jarringly irreverent realism with high-concept sci-fi so well, and I adore it even if some of the other stuff RoosterTeeth does makes me queasy. An Indefinite Epitaph was my first novel-length story focusing solely on a female character. Probably 80 percent of my fics will be about CT.
I also occasionally write for Assassin's Creed (Altair-Malik friendship intended to be construed as a ship if wordswithout wants), AtLA/LoK (Ozai/Ursa, Tonraq), and others. See above. Not sure what I'm going to do when I reach 200 fics, organizationally speaking.
My tumblr is very active, and while I make an attempt to put the prompt fills I get there in That Implied Necessity, it doesn't always happen. There are a lot of very short fics there that don't come here. Check out my Sandtrap tag, which has both fics and inspiration posts for an AU where Recovery One finds Freelancer CT in the desert.
