Author has written 81 stories for Stargate: SG-1, Gilmore Girls, Lois and Clark, and Smallville.
My name is Bren Ren, and I am a writer, fanartist, actress, singer, sometimes dancer, lighting designer, set builder, and general theatre techie, and now Director! I'm also the mother of three disgustingly beautiful children who are both my pride and joy and the greatest obstacle to the fic writing processes.
I've been writing fanfic for a little while now, having procrastinated joining the ranks of fic authors until I simply couldn't stand all the mutated plot bunnies dancing around in my head any longer. I'm still honing my craft, but I couldn't ask for better material to work on than my favorite couple from tv-land, Sam & Jack of Stargate SG1. Following their love story for ten long years has been an excercise in frustration, and I'm now trying to exorcise that frustration out in fic.
I've followed many 'ships in tv history, but it wasn't until the X-Files that I discovered online fandom and fanfic, and when I did, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven! I tried my hand once or twice at writing some myself, but when I reread my work, it was so sophomoric that I tore it to shreds and never thought twice about attempting it again... Until Sam & Jack, and some friends in online message groups who gave me the courage and inspiration to try again. I'm so glad I did!
Never could I have imagined a more fulfilling hobby than writing fanfic! I've made friends all over the world, and most importantly, I've brought Sam & Jack together in ways the in charge of their character development never had the guts to.
Update (May 16, 2009): I'm back! But not in the SG1 universe... I suppose you could say I've regressed, after rediscovering the love of a show that went off the air many, many moons ago: Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Though I was an avid (read obsessed) fan of the show from day one, it was only last year that I began reading fics from that universe... and I've been so hooked that I've been reading them to the exclusion of all else. I now finally have the time to start writing out some of my own. I hope they are enjoyed as much as my previous forays into the world of fanfiction have been.
And Another Udate (January 24, 2010): My love of Sam & Jack is back with a vengeance, as you can see by all the drabbles I've whipped out of late. I've also expanded into yet another universe, that of Smallville. One story complete, another in-progress, and the PlotBunny cages are filling faster than I can build them. I've also got a few ideas rolling about in my fron (head, for the non-Stargate-jargon initiated) for a couple other series, and I might yet get round to writing out those PlotBunnies I've had for eons for my beloved Star Wars 'ship, Han & Leia. We'll see, no promises... but stranger things have happened. (Like my parody of a parody, "Stargatin' Across the Multiverse"... now that was a strange writing experience, LOL!)
As always, Long Live FanFiction!
Love and hot fudge,
