Author has written 7 stories for White Wolf, X-Men: The Movie, Dark Angel, and Hunger Games.

Within the academic discipline of media studies, there has been a lot of scholarship surrounding fandom and fanfic. I did some of that work myself before finally escaping the Ivory Tower and imprisoning myself in a glassy office tower instead (same captivity, more pay.)

There used to be a a common stereotype of fan writers -- middle-aged, suburban women who experienced media, starting with the original Star Trek as a profound liberation from the drab routine of office work and housekeeping. In those days -- before the Web, even before widespread public Internet access -- fan writers published in paper fanzines, most of which had circulation figures were somewhere in the dozens. The techiest among them posted to BBSs, or CompuServe, or Usenet. They met face to face at conventions. The majority of the fan writers I met in those days did fit the sterotype -- stout matronly frumpy women who expressed their astonishing creativity through their play in borrowed worlds. Writing that way took substantial experience, not just with writing but with life. Teenaged fangirls (as I was) were a minority in that world.

These days, I'm a stout matronly frumpy middle-aged suburban woman who experiences media as a profound liberation from...

Yeah.

And these days, those are the minority.

I suppose there's something to be said for being a nonconformist.

When you pull apart the carved wooden woman, there's a smaller woman of the same sort inside, waiting to be pulled apart in turn. It's much like that with Max and the little sisters she never knew that Manticore had given her.
