Author has written 3 stories for Beverly Hills 90210.
I'm a college student who has far, far too much on her plate, and therefore spends her spare time watching far too much television and getting angry when the characters don't do what she wants them to... and enter fanfiction :D. I've been writing since I was about five years old, but somewhere along the way it got increasingly difficult for me to create my own characters, so now I enjoy playing with other peoples' creations.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel the Series - My first love; BtVS/Angel fic was the first fanfiction I ever read, and the first two shows I can remember being particularly attached to. And because I have a strange attachment to the doomed, I am a Buffy/Angel shipper for life, although mostly I'm just a major fan of Buffy. Even though she became increasingly flawed as the series went on, I will defend her to the death - as long as she can get Willow to resurrect me afterwards wink.
Veronica Mars - My second love, discovered sadly at the end of the second season. I've since seen every episode of the far-too short series, and again because of my strange attachment to the doomed, I am obsessed with Veronica/Logan... come on, they're LoVe! I also think that Veronica Mars is one of the few teenage shows that actually handled the transition to college well... yes, they were cancelled shortly there after and yes, the third season is the worst season of the three, but really, with Veronica Mars, that just means that the third season was the third best season. What I'm struggling to say is that the show was able to take seemingly far fetched plotlines (like high school detectives that outsmart the local police, or Epic high school relationships, or having all of the main characters attend the same college, in spite of a huge variation in income and intelligence) and make them feel realistic and logical. And it was incredibly well written to boot.
Gilmore Girls - I am a big, big fan of the mother/daughter bond on this show, and I also love that this is one of the few teen dramas that doesn't end with the lead character marrying or riding off into the sunset with his/her high school sweetheart. It seemed very realistic to me that both Rory and Lorelai went through a number of boyfriends during the show's run, and even though I adored Rory/Logan (maybe I just have a thing for the name Logan) and Lorelai/Christopher, I even acknowledge that it's realistic they wouldn't last in the long run.
Beverly Hills 90210 - This is my latest addiction, in spite of being the oldest show on the list, and it's also a guilty pleasure. But it's easy to write because there are so many characters, and it was on for so damn long that there's a lot of room to create your own stories. Plus it's very difficult to write something that can be described as out-of-character, because by the end of the series - Hell, by the fourth season - none of the characters had any consistancy anyway!
I'm a big fan of long, in depth reviews and have decided to establish a new policy, that I will respond to reviews that are long and have actual comments, whether the comments are criticisms or praise or questions, as long as the comment is long enough that I have something to respond to. I am also trying to be better about leaving longer, more detailed reviews myself.
