"Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant
pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couch bound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language."

"Many people hear voices when no one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day.
Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing."
I'm older than Sam Winchester but younger than Methos.
I'm a sci-fi/fantasy geek going way back. I'm old enough to have seen Star Wars on the big screen the first time 'round (and trust me, it was better back then.)
I love AU, but can be obsessive about canon.
I love supernatural stories (that's supernatural" with a little "s"), find romance incredibly boring, and a well written crossover can send me into the throes of ecstasy.
I consider myself less of a writer and more of a transcriber. When a story idea comes to me it's like a movie playing in my head and I then do my best to describe what I saw.
When I write, it's often non-linear. That is, I tend to jump back and forth in the timeline a lot. So a long pause between chapters doesn't mean I've abandoned a story or have writer's block, it's just that I'm working on chapter sixteen, while I still need to finish chapter four.
