My original fiction is somewhat eclectic, running the gamut from hard SF to urban fantasy to straight fantasy, with a little horror thrown in. There's a sticky post at the top of my LJ detailing where and when I've been published. I have lots of stories out looking for homes, and I've had seven "Honorable Mention" placements at Writers of the Future. I've completed one novel. There's a DVD extra from the first one, which came about because I decided that the actual story, told in a flashback, would be more effective than a couple of paragraphs in dialogue--and my inability to write any scene, it seems, from just one point of view. So, I took the scene where Ben and Janni meet for the first time in five years, following his return from a horrific experience in Afghanistan, and wrote it from his viewpoint. And you can read it here.
My BtVS fanfiction is a little off the beaten path for most that fandom--I have unashamedly written "Message fics" with a Christian!Spike, among other things. I have four of those--however, if that's not your cuppa tea, I have about sixty others that don't inject Christianity at all...so read them instead. I was also, once upon a time, a drabbling fool, and those are uploaded to FFN in various collections, sorted by where they fit. Feel free to poke around my FFN profile. Most of my fic is gen, although there's a bit of Spred and Spillyria shipping in there. And most of my recent stuff is Firefly, with a good smattering of post-BDM Jayne/Zoe. And in keeping with recent obsessions, I've got a couple of Iron Man fics as well (one of which is Every Shade of Wrong). Feedback is craved, so long as it's constructive.
If you want to read the fics in the MustardVerse in chronological order:
1. Salvation (at FFN)
2. A Mess of Pottage (at FFN)
3. Reward (at themustardverse)
4. Mustard Seed (At themustardverse)
Other shows I watch right now, or in the past, are "Numb3rs," "Heroes," "House, MD," "Bones," "Lost," CSI:NY, "Chuck," "Journeyman," "Pushing Daisies," and "Farscape." You may see some fannish flailing about them from time to time here. "Iron Man" and anything Robert Downey, Jr., are the latest obsessions, and you'll definitely see lots and lots of those sorts of things here. I even have a tag.
If I've friended you, chances are you're a friend of a friend and I love your fic, or I met you at WriterCon, or I've just stumbled across your LJ somehow, somewhere, and found you interesting. If you don't friend me back I won't be all upset; I understand that some of my political rants are *cough* controversial to some--especially in the Buffy fandom. Be thou warned: Conservatism lurketh here--and sometimes comes right out in the open and bites you on the ankles. Don't flame me for my beliefs, and I won't flame you for yours, k? But the fact that Rush Limbaugh is in my "list o' interests" should alert anyone who's interested in such things that my political leanings are well to the right of center.
If you friend me, please drop me a note in a comment and let me know why. I'm interested in such things, and it's always fun to find out why people want to read my ramblings. :)
Come in, kick back, and have fun! :-)
Icon awards! A few awards I've picked up over time...
Some screencaps from "True Blood" for wallpaper and icons provided by the lovely and effulgent marishna. Mad props for all the hard work. :)
Icon policy: Want, take, have, comment and credit, please, just so I know where they're going. And I'd rather you didn't alter them.
