Hi.

Since I just got a whole bunch (well, five or six) of those "you have been friended" notifications, I figure it might be a good idea to say howdy. So....

Howdy.

I'm Brat. I write, mostly. Some original stuff, some SGA stuff, various fusions/retellings of Greek myths and antique stories. My current project is writing stuff based in a world where magic is simply another branch of science. At the moment, a lot of what I write is about John Sheppard from SGA, for some reason. I'm somewhat obsessed with putting things in order, so every now and then I'll go through and reorganize all my tags and stuff.

I'm fond of fountain pens, bubbles, and things that spin. I tend to be a stickler for proper grammar and spelling and accurate (or at least interesting) characterization. Sometimes I take photographs. I only friend people I'm already friends with.

Feel free to say howdy back. ^_^

Howdy! (Makes me feel like a Texan. Oh wait, I am.)

I think I mentioned that I found you through pentapus, but even then, I don't usually friend people just like that unless they're really amazing. I particularly enjoy your wings!AU, not just because it's beautiful, but because it's so refreshing and original and creative and not John/Rodney (because I love John/Rodney, but seriously, it's everywhere). Erm. You're cool?
Yes I live in Plano. There's a DFW sf group called ORAC if you're interested. we're holding the sept. meeting at my house in Plano.
I'm cool! ^_^

And seriously - 'beautiful', 'refreshing', 'original' and 'creative' are just about the nicest compliments you could have picked for me. Because yes, it does seem like there's an awful lot of the same sort of story being told over and over, and I'm trying to do something a bit different. It's always nice to hear I'm succeeding.
You are very much cool! PS: I hope you don't mind that I recced "Wild Nest" over at my journal!

And you're right about that--I mean, there are so many brilliant stories, and moving stories, and stories that make you break down and cry, but 90% of the time they're just variations on the death/angst/UST!fic. Gah!
Rec away!

90% of the time they're just variations on the death/angst/UST!fic.

And there's so much more to life than that - it's a shame people don't take the opportunity to explore it with their writing. Especially if they're writing about science fiction, as with SGA - surprisingly few make use of the huge number of possibilities except as a way to get John and Rodney in bed together. *sigh* It's disappointing.
