Rough Trade Ruminations

In November of this year, Rough Trade will turn 10 years old. I can't say I expected my NANOWRIMO challenge to morph into what it is today but overall I'm pleased with it.

Let’s Talk About Quantum Banging

I officially "joined" fandom in May of 2008. I'll be celebrating my site anniversary on May 20th (13 years) and I didn't do my first fan fiction bang until 2019. I've rarely participated in fandom-specific challenges outside of events on Rough Trade.

I'm a fan fiction writer that occasionally dabbles in original work to fund my hobbies (this site and Rough Trade). I love fandom in general and the writers who populate it for the most part. There are exceptions, of course, and I don't shy away from saying so.

Unsolicited beta is not tolerated on my site and if you persist, it will get you banned from commenting. This is my little spot on the Internet and I don't have to tolerate anyone or their foolish behavior.
