This account is a cross-posted version of my Dreamwidth account, which has the same user name. I still check LJ and comment here frequently, but I do consider Dreamwidth my home base, so if you use both and would like to add me, please do so there.

I'm a well-rounded geek who sporadically writes fanfiction, usually finds fandom fascinating (sometimes morbidly), and freelances in the manga industry. (Want to see what I've worked on? Look here! The list isn't always up to date, but it gives an idea.) Manga traditionally gets most of my love, with Fruits Basket holding strong as my Favorite Thing Ever, but these days most of the stories I'm following are domestic TV shows.

I'm deeply in love with Mira Grant's Newsflesh trilogy. It's my first time being in a small fandom, and I'm not really sold on that part of the experience, so I've spent the last year doing the fannish equivalent of standing on street corners and handing out copies of Feed in hopes of introducing more people to the awesomeness incarnate of Georgia Mason. (The street corners are metaphorical. The copies of Feed are not.) So that's currently my primary fandom, and I'm also fairly fannish about Warehouse 13.

I'm married, Canadian, and in my 30s. I run Kubuntu Linux with sysadmin help from the husband, and our household's computers are a fine example of my habit of naming inanimate objects. For anyone familiar with the Enneagram, I'm an introverted 4w5.

If you're interested in reading my fanfiction and have any concerns about content, please consult my warnings policy. All of my manga-based fanfiction can be found on my fannish website, but the best place to look for any of my fics (30 stories about Haru and Rin from Fruits Basket, including the bulk of my post-series writing) is in this master list.

My non-manga-based fic (right now that means Newsflesh and Warehouse 13) is not on my site, but it can all be found over at Archive of Our Own.

Please feel free to add me if you like, link to any public posts, or comment any time. It's a friendly journal.
