Author has written 1 story for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.
I read. I review. And occasionally (rarely these days) I write. Sometimes I even post original stuff at FictionPress.com under AshMC.
I am a huge fan of BtVS and NCIS fanfiction that focus on specific 'ships.
I strongly believe that Buffy/Angel are soulmates. I understood and was mildly pleased with her relationship with Spike, until he pushed it too far into the realm of unforgivable. I, therefore, do not have any sympathy or desire to read that 'ship as I find it tainted by his actions, even if the fic does not make mention of it. And yes, I know Angel abandoned Buffy, but the mitigating circumstances in that situation were far more profound. I dislike Angel/Cordelia because I find it contrived. Angel and Cordy are more like siblings. She only pursued him seriously when she envied Buffy's relationship with him. I much prefer Cordy/Xander or Cordy/Doyle. I don't care about Cordy's later character development because, again, I feel it is contrived. (BTW, I know that all TV is contrived, so if it really feels like it is forced, then I really question the 'reality' of it.)
I highly enjoy TIVA fics and wish that the show would develop the characters as they did in earlier seasons and even shortly after the Beniot disaster. I feel that Tony and Ziva balance each other and work well together. I will be honest and admit that I have not watched much of the recent seasons because I began to feel the characters were weaker than previous seasons. I am a fan of a strong female character and Ziva has become systematically less ninja and increasingly whiny.
I enjoy reading crossovers if they are well done. I admire a writer's ability to meld two universes successfully. I also admire writers who capture characters as they originally appeared.
I know I need to work on my writing and continue to do so, but in the pursuit of more education and reluctance to actually join the real world, I am back in school... again... which means my writing mainly consists of analytical and critical papers that do not fall under any form of fanfiction.
