Hi, I'm Barbara, the ECQ (Evil Cliffie Queen - a nickname I earned during the posting of Déjà Vu on LiveJournal) It's a nickname I try to live up to, but I'm not-at-all serious about it. I am in my early 40s, female, and married with a gradeschooler. Here's a little about my fannish history:
Since summer of 2005, I have adored Spider-Man. First the movies, and then the comics. Somehow, in a very short time, I managed to read hundreds of Spider-Man comics. I've read the first few decades, and the last several years, but I'm still working on the 80s and 90s... Although after JoeQ's One More Day/Brand New Day fiasco, and the end of Spider-Girl, I've stopped reading anything except Ultimate Spider-Man. Miles is a cutie. I loved the Spectacular Spider-Man animated series, but couldn't get into the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, sadly. I did really enjoy The Amazing Spider-Man movie reboot, against all odds!
Then I started writing Superman. I've always loved the character, starting with the movies in 1978 and 1980 (I never saw the other two, and judging from the reviews, it's probably just as well). Then I avidly followed Lois and Clark the series, watched the DC cartoon, and have seen every episode of Smallville. In 2006, I got involved with Superman Returns fandom. For a while, I wrote a lot of Smallville Clois. I enjoyed Man of Steel mostly based on Lois and Clark's relationship. I definitely had some issues, but what Superman movie franchise is without issues? :D
Of course, most of my friends these days know me for either Arrow, Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad or Community -- TV fandom is my life now.
My most active fannish activity is as maintainer of community_tv (and the twitter and tumblr mirrors). Come join us if you love NBC's Community! I also moderate the less active breaking_bad and breakingbad_art, as I am obsessed with the show. And my current multi-fannish home these days is Tumblr. Come say hi!
Blanket Permission Statement: You do not need to ask my permission to remix, podfic, translate, archive, create art for or create any secondary fanwork of any fanwork I have posted. Anything you produce in turn should feature a link back to my work and credit me by username, and you should also share the link to your work with me! It will serve two purposes: keep me abreast/informed, and make me really happy. I'd absolutely love to know about it.
If you are interested in meta, I wrote an essay discussing the issues in writing movieverse Clois - I think the comments people left are really fascinating as well!
I also write for various other TV fandoms (which you can see in my "has authored XX stories list"), mostly because of writing birthday fics for LiveJournal friends, or for writing challenges. Some of my pieces are posted at AO3 exclusively. So check out my account there if you enjoy my writing. I also try to reply to every review I receive if possible (although I have not been able to sometimes), so feel free to ask questions or give constructive feedback! But please, I beg you, don't try to hand me your plot bunnies to adopt -- suggestions for story ideas will probably not be used.
