Eep! Stuff about me!?! Well I'm not very good at that.
I'm Irish, female, age...oh wait that's for my dating profile...never mind... lol!
I started writing (for myself) about three years ago, don't get a lot of free time but the ultimate plan would be to make writing a viable career option...eventually. Will probably go back to studying and use the career break as a launch platform, who knows?
I like the challenge of short stories and occassionally get poetic inspiration but mostly its just perspiration, bad splleing and grammar errors galore!
I'm currently trying my hand at my own post WWII alternate reality fic but having to bed the story in actual fact is not going too well as history is not my bag. Why do I do this to myself!?!
I love Stargate SG-1, Sanctuary,NCIS, Bones, CSI Miami, Family Guy, The Simpsons, Stargazing Live & The Wonders Of The Solar System (Brian Cox is a legend!), The middle, Raising Hope, My name is Earl and ...oh the list goes on, covering everything from Countdown to Chaucer. Rhapsody in Blue to Bohemian Rhapsody. (but not jazz, never any jazz!!)
I also avidly worship at the alter of Amanda Tapping, forever and ever, no men.
Favourite SG-1 quote: Jack: "Teal'c, you will not shave my head!" tee hee
Anything I post on this site is for pure entertainment value, though I do regard it as a learning curve and love to hear what people think. Every day I thrum my fingers impatiently at the little hourglass as the page loads so I can check to see if I have any new reviews I love them so much...the good, the bad and the construtive :)
My motto:- If I don't know it's broke, how can I fix it!?
Don't suppose you need to know very much really else...Oh my reason for joining this site!!
I am a committed SG-1 lover. A self-confessed 'gatehead one might say and I love the thought of being able to play with the characters outside of the confines of the tv show...it's just like being a puppet-master sometimes, kinda makes me want to ask What Would Geppetto Do? And I get my rocks of on reviews...especially those from stories that have been posted for a while...it's always comforting to know that people still read and review things that have been up there hanging for a while...
I have the original Dean Devlin novel & all of the spin offs (Retribution, retalliation etc)from the 1997 movie, all the SG-1 movies and series(obviously), some of the graphic novels and even some of the original scripts - thank you ebay! Yes I know geek! Oddly enough I didn't get into SG-1 before 2007 but didn't really watch tv at all before that, then I had a lot of catching up to do.
Sam Carter is my big love - Amanda Tapping, Amanda Tapping, Amanda Tapping, did I mention Amanda Tapping? I will follow her everywhere she goes (even her tiny role in Engaged to Kill...flick good? Definitely not!) Enjoyed the jump to Sanctuary, great show but ranks on an even power with Bones which is still a top level 9 out of 10. Stargate goes up to 11 (Spinal Tap reference).
Okay better stop there or I'll have you all glaze over on me!!
As I go along I will put myself forward as a novice Beta reader when I can, but only for SG-1 fics, don't know enough about other shows to be fair or useful to anyone.
BETA-BUDDY ANYONE??? I am finding it impossible to choose from the many, many fantastic Beta readers so if you would like to volunteer please do...just drop me a note in my inbox. Need to be pretty hot on the nitty-gtitty pieces of SG-1 trivia and time-lines. (sometimes I get it way wrong) and have no aversion to me tossing Carter down the stairs 'cause I love her (you know she can take it), angst, trauma, shipping (potentially M rated at times), fluff and a whole bunch of dried out and skinny cows as I've used every drop of milk I can to make cheese. If you like the sound of Betaing for me please don't hesitate. I know my perfect Beta-Buddy is out there somewhere...
