Who Writes This Crap?
I'm a college graduate in my twenties who pays the bills with a minimum wage job, which is both sad and ludicrous. (I may be close to getting a job I actually went to school for though.) I'm actually in the process of writing my first novel at the moment, which means fan-fiction has largely gone on hiatus, except for shorties which I'll do while I'm at writer's block or just need a break from the novel. I won't give away much else about myself, except that I'm female and live somewhere in the U.S.
Most of my stories pertain to "Star Trek: Voyager," because I know the show so well and it leaves so many opened doors for speculation. The same however is quickly becoming true for the works of sci-fi author William Gibson. Besides that, I like to write ficletts for obscure movies that no one else has written fanfiction for yet (probably because "Rubber" and "Lord of the G-Strings" really don't need to be expanded on...)
Mostly I write plot-hole fillers. Otherwise, I'm a fan of AUs (for "Star Trek," where alternate universes and timelines are part of canon). Once in a while though, I'll write a story that isn't really either of these, just for sh*ts and giggles.
For romance I work with canon ships, for the main characters at least. Though my favorite "Voyager" couple is Paris/Torres, I write far more for Chakotay/Seven, because their romance was so underdeveloped and such a missed opportunity on the show's part. Other parings I'll explore in AU stories. My One True Slash Paring is Chakotay/Paris; otherwise, I'm open to ideas.
I can read most any paring, provided it's they're either well written or so badly written it's funny. Despite being a C/7 shipper, I can flow with C/J if it's well done. (That is to say, the author treats the characters as adults, doesn't portray Seven insultingly, and doesn't use Tom, B'Elanna or Harry as their J/C mouthpieces.)
What I'll read:
Any AU "Voyager" story automatically has my attention. I'm also a big fan of troll fics. (I have a stupid sense of humor.) Otherwise, I love reading about characters or plotlines that weren't developed much onscreen; stories that explain plotholes; or romantic fics with a couple I either ship, or some new couple I wouldn't have thought of. If I like an idea enough, I'll make it my personal "canon" and use it in my own stories, but always credit the person who came up with the idea and the story they did it in.
I began fan-fiction as a way to kill time and practice my writing, while I work to actually do something with my life. However, fan-fiction has exploded into a dangerous addiction for me. I have a horrible habit of starting long stories before others are finished. And since I'm trying to work on original writing projects, I shouldn't be trying to start any new fan-fics at all.
For this reason, I now try as much as possible to convey my ideas through one-shots and short stories. And objectively speaking, my one-shots are almost certainly my best work. They're the most canon-friendly, and (usually) the most carefully proof-read.
That's all I have to say. May the Schwartz be with you!
