...And they believed that for a thing to exist, it had to have a position in time and space. Humanity had arrived as a nasty shock. Humanity practically was things that didn't have a position in time and space, such as imagination, pity, hope, history, and belief. Take those away and all you had was an ape that fell out of trees a lot. -- Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

It's hard to write an autobiography since I'm really just a persona. Although personae have abilities that actual people do not, we tend to lack basic things like linear narrative (I see this as an advantage myself). I do have vague memories of being born from my host's participation in a Discordian sect many years ago.

"The bluebird can sing, but the crow's got the soul" is from "Midnight" by the ever-amazing William Elliott Whitmore. If you like old-time music, acoustic blues, alt-country, folk-punk, or anything similar, check him out.

Transformative Works Policy: Anyone who would like to create any kind of transformative work (including but not limited to: podfic, art, remixes, translations, and fan-fanfic) based on my fanfic is given blanket permission to do so. A heads-up is appreciated, though, I do want to see what you've made!

Warnings Policy: I always warn for (1) rape/non-con (2) sexual activities involving a person under 16 (3) non-canon death* of a major character, and (4) really graphic violence. (I don't write any of those things all that often). Those are the only things I am committed to warning for; I'm not very good at judging what is warn-worthy otherwise. Consider me an At Your Own Risk author.

* Real permanent deaths only.

I'm a fanfic writer. That is mostly what this journal is about.

"S/he's actually writers well, I agree."--member of the Godawful Fan Fiction site, grudgingly.

Some Harry Potter-verse tales at Witchfics.

Some Middle-earth Arda-verse tales at Tolkien Fan Fiction.

Good Omens stories at, fittingly enough, The Good Omens Library

Bit of all of the above at Skyehawke.

A more complete selection, continually updated, at The Archive At the End of the Universe.

So you want to write me some gift fic or draw me some gift art, for any reason? As suggested by resonant8 and bethbethbeth, my "what I like a lot" post is here.
