Age: 31

Location: Southeastern US

About Me: Jill of all trades, mistress of some? Four cats. Married. Work part time at a college. Going to grad school in the fall. Left leaning feminist. Cook, baker, candlestick maker (okay, I haven't tried that yet). I'm trying to teach myself guitar. I'm a gamer (I don't do MMOs). I have too many hobbies and distractions and that leads to my being a procrastinator. Currently mildly obsessed with: Supernatural, Dishonored, Fallout: New Vegas, Skyrim.


About My Journal: I've been absent for a while, because I live on a variety of social media. I grew upon Livejournal and moved over to DW about the time I stopped blogging quite as much. But I've recently consolidated my main and fanfiction journals, so I'll probably be posting more often.


What I Write: What I like. Dark fantasy, urban fantasy, with the occasional jaunt into other genres (particularly horror, erotica). I write original fiction as well as fanfiction (I'm a slasher and a shipper but no, I don't do shipwar bull). My original fiction (that I share) mostly ends up on blogger (I link to it).


What I Don't Write: Westerns. Um...crime? General fiction or "literary." (Sometimes this changes.)


What I Read: A little bit of everything. Fantasy, horror, non-fiction, literature classics.


What I Don't Read: Westerns, crime/legal/thriller type stuff, high fantasy. (Sometimes this changes.)


Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: If I have time (so, the shorter the work the more likely I can give you an assist). My undergrad is in English. But don't let that freak you out. I'm not going to smack you with a ruler if you misspell something and I break the rules of grammar often.

Location: Tokyo, Japan

About Me: I'm a twentysomething queerish girlwoman expatriate librarian-at-arms. I eat books and bleed poetry.
… er, that's what it says on the Twitter account that I admit to at work, but I'm writing this from a mattress on the floor and eating an ice cream in my pajamas on a Friday evening, in between shuffling my new tarot cards and watching trashy movies. (The Twitter account I don't admit to at work is [twitter.com profile] transpacifique.)

About My Journal: This is where I post any writing worth sharing. (If you're on LJ, my "journal"/diary is [livejournal.com profile] meepalicious.)

What I Write: I write stories for my friends. I love to co-write or share a 'verse and characters, so most of my recent work is collaborative stuff or my half of a story, or my characters' side of something. I like writing about ordinary people caught up in extraordinary circumstances, or extraordinary people trying to live ordinary lives. I like fantasy (high and, especially, urban), historical, contemporary and, yes, romance. I like to write underrepresented queer romances; expect to see a lot of queer women, ménages à trois, gender nonconforming and/or asexual characters. 
I'm an active participant in [livejournal.com profile] writerverse, so many of my stories are challenge responses. Sometimes I dabble in [community profile] rainbowfic.
I'm starting to dabble in poetry and creative nonfiction.

What I Don't Write: I don't write horror, smut, or hard sci-fi.

What I Read: I'm a children's librarian, so I read a lot of kidlit. Online, I'll read most anything, except for what I don't. (See below.) I like to read (and write) about happy, stable queer relationships, the kind of people  I might like to be friends with if I met them, and fuzzy warm feelings. 

What I Don't Read: I don't read what I don't write, but I might make an exception for hard sci-fi.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Sure! I'm a bit rusty, but I used to spend hours a day copy and content editing for friends online. I would be happy to be a beta reader and critique partner; that's actually what I'm here for. I mean, I hope we will be friends, but I'd love to meet some creative collaborators!

About Me: I've wanted to write ever since I was young but never had the guts to pursue it right out of school.  I went into accounting instead, and spent three miserable years in public accounting before I realized enough was enough.  Now I work from home as a bookkeeper and spend my spare time thinking about writing and not actually writing very much XD  This blog, separate from my fandom blog, is my desperate attempt to have a writing life that does not revolve around Harry Potter characters.  In my spare time, when not agonizing over my writing, I like to sew, listen to audio books, and write people typewritten letters.

About My Journal: As mentioned above, my journal is an effort to focus on writing.  I post little snippets of original fic, little snippets of fanfic that I don't want the general fandom to see, musings about the writing process, and basically any other thoughts I have in regards to writing.  There will be lists of things to remember about characters, brainstorms for plot, and ramblings about random things.  I'm trying to read more, so I'll probably write about books that I read, as well.

What I Write:  Right now, mostly slash fanfiction.  In terms of original fiction, I'd like to write romance, specifically gay or lesbian romance.  I'd like to write fantasy as well.  I'm interested in futuristic fantasy and alternate universe historical fantasies.  I like queer characters.  I also like erotica, so I'll probably have some of that in any story I write.  

What I Don't Write: I don't think I'd be particularly good at mysteries, and I'm a bit too intimidated by sci-fi, though I think I will dabble a little bit in that, if there are fantasy elements as well.  I don't write non-fiction, either.

What I Read: Not so much, lately.  But I do plan to read more, now that I have time.  I read a lot of slash fanfiction from HP fandom.  I re-read a lot of old things I like, mostly.  I'm a big fan of Georgette Heyer's regency era romances.  I like Neil Gaiman, Tamora Pierce, Jane Austen, Italo Calvino, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Dorothy Sayers.  I read manga, as well.  My favorite manga are, in no particular order: From Eroica With Love, Yotsuba&, Saiyuki, anything by Fumi Yoshinaga or Naono Bohra, Wandering Son, Viewfinder, Petshop of Horrors, Aoi Hana.  I collect writing books, and I read those, as well. 

What I Don't Read: Really fluffy fanfiction, Stephanie Meyers, E.L. James, Harlequin-esque romances.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I could edit for basic spelling & grammar, and maybe make suggestions about structure and pacing.  I'd be happy to help edit anyone's original fic, or fanfiction if I'm familiar with the fandom =)
