ABOUT THE CHESHIRE CHEESE:
Who writes this crap?
I'm an adult in my twenties with a B.A. in English, living in a cheap apartment that I pay for with a minimum wage job, which is both sad and ludicrous. Beyond that, I'm not going to give much away about myself, except that I'm female and live somewhere in the U.S.
Warning: this account is misleading...
To those who've gotten to know me a little, and follow my stories regularly, I feel I should make something known: my stories on Fanfiction. net do not paint an accurate picture of my likes. Nor does my behavior here paint the full picture of my personality.
The characters, parings, and franchises I writer for are not necessarily my top favorites. They're just the ones I feel I have something to add to. For example, I'm a massive "Star Wars" fan; but the Expanded Universe, and the number of professionally made parodies, renders fan-fiction almost pointless. My #1 favorite "Voyager" pairing is Tom and B'Elanna, but the show handled their relationship perfectly, so I rarely write or read fics for them. Chakotay and Seven on the other hand...need work.
And my personality. I don't want to come off as two faced, but the fact is, I adjust my behavior for the situation. Fanficiton. net is a pretty benign community, full of people far more mature than myself, so I tend to be on my best behavior here. If you ever track me down on You Tube or DeviantArt, you might be surprised to find me engaging in vulgar conversations with trolls, and spamming threads with crude pictures. Different websites have different cultures, is about the best way I can put it.
Most of my stories revolve around "Star Trek: Voyager," simply because it's the show I'm the most familiar with. I've been a fan for well over a decade, and know it like the back of my hand. And much as I love it, there's no denying that "Voyager" has a LOT of plot-holes in need of filling.
"Voyager" has a challenger: William Gibson. The work of this amazing writer has almost no flaws at all, but because so much is deliberately left ambiguous, there's lots of room for speculation. In particular, I lover writing about his female characters. His male leads tend to be fairly straightforward, while his heroines and villainesses are shrouded in mystery. I love speculating on the pasts and ultimate fates of Molly, Chrome, Angie, etc.
The third biggest group I seem to write for is a random collection of obscure movies. For some reason, it's very important to me that every movie I like have at least one fan-fic out there, even if it really, really doesn't need any. Hence, my stories for "Rubber," "8 Crazy Nights," and "Lord of the G-Strings."
Other fandoms: "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," "Star Wars," "South Park," William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Peter Lorre, and too many sci-fi, fantasy, film noirs and stoner comedies to list.
Why so many unfinished stories?
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 objectively speaking, my one-shots are almost certainly my best work. They're the most canon-friendly, and probably the most carefully proof-read.
CONTRIBUTIONS TO FANON:
Maybe this is true for a lot of fan-fic writers, but I've come up with a few ideas that other writers have embraced. And while I try to me modest most of the time, I really would like to claim credit for the following:
Pioneered Kenny/Mole and Kevin/Shelly (for "South Park"): My "South park" fan-fic, "Love or Infatuation," shipped Kevin/Shelly and Kenny/Christophe before any other stories on this site. (I removed the story once to re-post an edited version, so the "publishing" date is misleading.) It's not the best story for these ships, but I swear it was the first.
Lower-decks characters (for "Star Trek: Voyager"): I've given names and backstories to several very minor characters, which other writers have begun to embrace. To name a few:
Only person on the entire Internet... to write fan-fiction for "The Lord of the G-Strings," and "Rubber." I await my Nobel Piece Prize for this accomplishment.
CREDIT TO OTHER WRITERS I RIP OFF:
Obviously I'm not the only person adding to Fanon. So now I'm going to credit a few people who I borrow ideas from:
"Facts" borrowed from other writers:
Suggestions from Readers:
You know you're a fan-fiction addict when you actually start to recognize the same people around the site, to the point you're actually making friends! I'm wary of naming names, for fear of leaving anyone out. But if I know you, and you weren't mentioned in this section, don't worry: it's not because I don't enjoy your work, it's just that our styles are different enough that I didn't feel like stealing anything from ya. (For example, Scifiromance's style is great to read, but it has far too much character development and not enough poop jokes for me to write.)
Ships I will go down with!
I've too many to list them all, so I'll just name the ones I tend to write or read about.
This concludes the profile of the Cheshire Cheese. May the Schwartz be with you.
