Ready ref: Answers to a few FAQs–

~ No, I'm not Jewish.
~ No, I'm not, nor have I ever been, in the military/intel community/law enforcement.
~ No, I'm not an academic... good grief.

Nota Bene:

This journal is now mostly private and friends-only. If you add me to your circle, I ain't gonna add you back. Simple as that.

Internet Land is bad for me. I'm only sticking around because I can't be without the friends I've made here.

So what's public?

Fanfic, the majority of posts tagged 'writing,' the occasional geeky ramble, and a few rants.

About my fic:

I'm not what anyone would call a typical fanfic writer. My writing background is 20+ years of original writing. One day I'll finish one of the 2 fantasy novels I started... when I can get past that terrible feeling that I'm not doing my research. But many happy hours are spent researching all my fanfic, meaning that I shan't stop writing it any time soon.

A note on my NCIS fic:

More info here, but basically canon ends, for me, about midway through S5. I rewrote a big chunk of what came before that point, and I continue to write in the world that I built.

If the above is something that would bug you, I respectfully suggest that you go and read someone else's work.


STATEMENT

I hereby state categorically that I do not permit remixing and/or podficcing of my fanfiction. And while I'm at it, I reserve the right to write the prequels and sequels (if any) to my stories.

I can tell you that there is nothing more rewarding than working on world-building and the development of various characters within that world. Why 'borrow' from me, when you can reap those rewards yourself?
Writing is nothing short of revelment. Go, revel!
