I am a 20-something from Estonia and I've been reading/writing fanfiction since 2003. Since I've been doing this for a long time, I can say that I've definitely improved as a writer and I don't consider my first fanfics as good as my later ones, the distinction being made somewhere after my CSI: Miami and before my Gossip Girl phase.
I am not a native English speaker but I've studied at an English-biased school. I mostly use British English in my everyday situations but here I lean towards American English since the shows are American and it makes more sense this way.
I tend to leave long reviews because I have come to appreciate the good feeling an author gets from a well-thought review and I will respond to reviews left for my stories if there is something more to say or to answer a question. And while I understand why sometimes you don't feel like reviewing a story, please remember to do so when you mark a story as your favourite. If you really liked it, let the author know why.
I like the anonimity this site offers, allowing us to be a little different than in real life.
I tend to be quite an avid shipper, meaning I tend to find at least one ship from every TV show I watch. I also have written/write for a lot of different fandoms rather than commit to just one so bear with me when I switch between them, forgetting some and finding new ones. I do have my favourite ships of the moment but they are always prone to change, depending on what's happening on the show and whether I'm feeling inspired by the couple in question. As of lately and in no particular order, these are:
Covert Affairs: Annie and Eyal
How I Met Your Mother: Barney and Robin
NCIS: Los Angeles: Kensi and Deeks
Arrow: Oliver and Felicity
The Mentalist: Jane and Lisbon
Fringe: Peter and Olivia
There is a ton of pairings I ship infrequently. I tend to move around with them a lot, sometimes moving them to my favourites - which probably means I am writing about them in that very moment - and sometimes demoting them. Life's harsh, even for pairings. Again, in no particular order, these are Thirteen/House and Thirteen/Chase from House, M.D., Blair/Chuck from Gossip Girl, Dani/Charlie from Life, Neal/Sara from White Collar, Eliot/Parker from Leverage, Bones/Booth from Bones, Isabel/Walter from The Finder, Hotch/Prentiss from Criminal Minds, Juliet/Shawn from Psych, Steve/Catherine from Hawaii 5-0, Michael/Nikita from Nikita, Harvey/Donna from Suits, Emily/Nolan from Revenge, Reese/Zoe from Person of Interest, Michael/Fiona from Burn Notice, Castle/Beckett from Castle, Don/Robin from Numb3rs, Elizabeth/Philip from Americans, Aiden/Daniella from Cracked, Nick/Jess from New Girl and Clint/Natasha (Hawkeye/Black Widow) from Avengers.
I'm mostly about canon pairings but sometimes I find myself rooting for the underdog relationship. I appreciate M-fiction if it's tasteful. I don't appreciate illogical pairings or slash if there's been no indication towards it whatsoever in canon. I absolutely loathe shipper names and will never use them.
