I started this livejournal so I could comment on people's fiction without being anonymous. My first entry was http://fannishliss.livejournal.com/722.html on November 7, 2007. I'm now writing fan fiction regularly, after thinking of myself primarily as a poet for most of my life!
Some of my stories are marked as R (Teen) or NC17 (Mature/Adult). Please heed the ratings and warnings and don't peek if you're not ready for that sort of thing!! Adult really does mean adult. My stories are Transformative Creative Works and no profit will ever be sought for them.
My first fandom on LJ has been Supernatural -- what an amazing fandom! I branched out into Doctor Who fandom -- I was an old fan in the 1980s, and it's fun to see the scope of a fandom over fifty years old! I am now writing in the MCU, especially for Bucky and Steve. :) You will find my stories archived at AO3 under my name, Fannishliss.
I am a singer, music teacher, straight but not narrow*, married**, mom. I have a Ph. D. in English, MFA in Poetry, and BA in Music and English. *= After decades of struggle I have come to understand my gender identity as non binary. My pronoun is still "She" but I do understand myself as non binary. Everything is so much clearer now! **I am in a committed lifelong monogamous relationship -- but I also identify as panromantic and (demi)sexual-- I'm still getting clearer about that.
I am very interested in religion, myths, spirituality, etc. I believe that everyone has their own relationship with the Divine, and I am committed to diversity and respect. I personally am a Christian with lots of spices thrown in -- if you have any questions I will answer with respectful engagement.
