About us:

Gender: female(s)

B-day: July 22

My current fandoms include: Star Trek (ToS and AoS, oh how I love thee...), The A-Team (TV Series, though the movie was a nice tribute and I enjoyed it), Psych, X Men: Evolution, Wolverine and the X Men, One Piece, House, M.D., the Losers, and Final Fantasy VII, Sherlock, among others. For anyone who cares, we have a tendency to use a combination of comics/movies/games, so we will take aspects from each when writing fanfics. Y'know, pick-and-choose to get the best personality/characterization for the story. For example, we might take something that happened in ToS and apply it to an AoS story. Cheating? Maybe, but totally worth it...

Reading: I love to read, it really helps me with my writing. Lately I've been using my Marvel Digital Comics subscription to all but melt my brain with hundreds of Marvel works. I've also been buying a Star Trek novel just about every time I get to a Barnes and Nobles (which is not often, because there isn't one anywhere near my hometown) I also got the audio book for the 2009 movie, so I've had Spock reading to me (Zachary Quinto voices the Vulcan women at the beginning of the book amazingly well)! Oh, the fun~

Likes/Pass times: I love watching football, though I'd never be able to play it. I love reading and watching comics, manga, and anime, as well as television. I play video games sometimes, though I'm not really good at them. I rock at puzzle-oriented video games, as well as round-battle RPGs. I've never been much of a movie critic. If it interests me, and doesn't have too many poorly-executed lewd jokes, I usually end up loving it...

We're currently obsessed with writing Star Trek o3o So much fun~ As far as pairings go, so far we have ideas/stories in progress with the following pairings: Kirk/McCoy, Kirk/Spock, Spock/Uhura, Sulu/Chekov, Kirk/Spock/McCoy. Hopefully all of these will be finished and ready to be posted some time in the near future, though if you're partial to seeing something, we do take requests.

To me, criticism means criticism. If I have something to say, I will. Please don't be insulted, I'm not trying to put you down or anything, I'm trying to help you. Don't sugar-coat for me, and I won't for you, and we'll all get better in our writing because of it. Probably. I might just be failing in my criticisms, in which case...y'know...ignore me.

I love writing, it's my passion. I have an entire bookshelf packed with notebooks (years old as well as brand-new) and as a laptop to write on. Rarely do I go anywhere for a long time without something to write with. You never know when inspiration will strike, right? In any case, I hope that I'll be able to write something worthwhile to post here. Until then, though, my plot bunnies will run rampant on many a sheet of notebook paper!

Yes, we take STORY REQUESTS: We will be glad to write a story for you if you have an idea that you'd rather read than write (I've been there. Luckily, I have a twin to force to write it for me XD) You can also give us requests for something to happen in one of our stories, though I will warn you that more often than not we write the entire story before we begin posting, so if its a huge change from the plot we've written we might not be able to pencil it in. Ask anyway though, because we'll try our best to use your suggestions. So please, let us know if you have something in mind! Writing for someone else is a good way to get my ass in gear anyway :D Personal requests are always more likely to get written. We're people pleasers in that sense.

And now, something to amuse:

Hello Ensigns.

Look at your Captain, now back to me, now back at your Captain, now back to ME.
Sadly, he isn't me, but if he started ripping his shirt and making eyes at his officers, he could ACT like me.

Look down, back up, where are you?
What's in your hand? Back at me.
I have them, they're two phasers from that planet that you love.
Look again.

Anything is possible when you're as hot as Captain Kirk.
I'm on a sehlat.

Something I saw on Dear Blank, Please Blank.

Dear Twilight Fans,

Thank you for making us look so sane and well adjusted.
