Author has written 1 story for Gundam Wing/AC.

Hi all!

Almost four years and I've never put in anything about myself - not that I've written many stories, either. I have an enormous respect for all the people here who spend so much time and energy writing, because I know how exhausting it is! There is a lot to be said for personal incentives, like stories that don't end how you wanted. UGH. That's generally my incentive. Or, less often, stories that I don't want to end at all. Anyway I've found so many satisfying conclusions here that I'm an addict! What can I say?

I feel like I just take take take, so I'm semi-dabbling in an Escaflowne fic to give back a little more. That is the only major series that I've never found a satisfying fanfic for. It's tricky though, out of respect for the flawlessly executed end of the story I can't take a continuation lightly, so it'll be a pretty major production if it happens at all (and it will be HAPPY, darnit. It needs to be HAPPY. I don't know what depressing tendency made me torture poor Heero in Standing Upside Down, but I promise I do like happy endings!)

What else? I despise OOC fanfiction, unless it's disarmingly funny (not often), so I think pretty hard about the characters I'm writing -- and I really really appreciate it when others do, too. Check out my favorites for good stories that could believably exist in whatever universe they came from.

So that's my soap box. I am a painter and a portrait artist, which fills my days, and have just taken up audiobooks while I'm working (the Chivers production of Bram Stoker's Dracula is the best I've heard so far).

And in true FFN fashion, all my long long list of favorite pairs from ever anywhere, fanfictioned for or not!
