Welcome, welcome!! I just saw that you uploaded the last chapter of your fanfic "In Her Eyes." I definitely know the first thing I'm doing tonight! haha And you have now joined some of your fellow JB shippers on this wonderful forum. Yay you, yay us!!! :))sea_spirit wrote: Hi everyone! I recently posted my first attempt at a J/B fic over on AO3 and got a lovely invite from DanyelN to check this place out. I am SO glad I did! How did I not know about this sooner?! Seriously, my shipper's heart has found a home. It's an absolute delight to be here, and I look forward to soaking up all the J/B goodness. :)

I'm a recluse and a wino who has been lurking around all things J/B for about a year, and has finally decided to put a digital toe in the light because you all seem like lovely, safe people.
I'm almost 50, have one kiddo I birthed at an "advanced maternal age," and my familiar is a scrappy ancient terrier named Mose Allison.
I grew up in my mom's used bookstore on the south side of Chicago and my dad was an English teacher. My mom's store was not a fancy one, though; it was a community of hard-working folks who loved romance, westerns, sci-fi, fantasy, and men's adventure; comic book lovers and collectors; and D&D players (mom had a whole section of the store dedicated for gaming).
I read for a living and my official title is editor. I basically translate academic historians and archaeologists so that their work makes sense to the rest of us. Outside of work, I read historical mystery, historical romance, and some fantasy. My other OTPs are Beatrice/Benedick, Anne/Gilbert, Lord Peter/Harriet, Eddie Birdlace/Rose Fenny, Hermione/Ron, Johnny Case/Linda Seton, etc. Now that I am a committed crone I figure there is no point in exploring that, uh, theme? in therapy.
Thanks to the group for existing and for having me, and especially thanks for all the delightful fanfic some of you write that brought me here. I'd be happy to serve as a beta/editor and will try to remember to post as such in the appropriate thread.
Waving atchya, relieved to have newbie company. Thanks for your kind reply to my comment on your recent fic, too. Ohhhh, Dogfight. Sigh.sea_spirit wrote: Hi katykrash! Welcome from a fellow new member! Also, I just had to take a moment to share your Eddie/Rose love. Dogfight is one of my favorite films. :)
True story: My frosh year English teacher--herself a legit thespian, and we're still dear friends--assigned all us college-prep track kids the task of delivering a Will S. speech or soliloquy of choice before the class. I petitioned her to let me put together Beatrice's best bits and deliver those. She agreed, and I kicked ass.Quinn wrote: Hi katykrash! The fact that Beatrice/Benedick is the first ship you mentioned makes me immediately want to befriend you. I named my laptop Beatrice because it gives me so much sass.
