Thank you all for the warm welcome. And the love for my fic, too, which is so kind of you! I guess I picked an interesting day to join, but the upside is that I might not be the only one with no idea how to use this yet!

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. :)

Greetings! Katykrash is the name I use online to make up for the fact that I never got very far with roller derby 15+ years ago. 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.

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. :)

Waving atchya, relieved to have newbie company. Thanks for your kind reply to my comment on your recent fic, too. Ohhhh, Dogfight. Sigh.

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.

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.

Surprisingly...I did not date in high school.

BUT HA!  would do it again. It certainly cut the crap. Fools!

Krashy at 14 in the 1980s:

Just, if he send me no husband; for the which 
blessing I am at him upon my knees every morning and 
evening. Lord, I could not endure a husband with a 
beard on his face: I had rather lie in the woollen.

What should I do with him? dress him in my apparel 
and make him my waiting-gentlewoman? He that hath a 
beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no 
beard is less than a man: and he that is more than 
a youth is not for me, and he that is less than a 
man, I am not for him: therefore, I will even take 
sixpence in earnest of the bear-ward, and lead his 
apes into hell.

<OMG I TAKE IT ALL BACK now 35 years later BECAUSE JAIME BEARD!>
<cough GINGERPEST, bear, whatevs>
<But I digress, I actually delivered all this in full fury-glory to a roomfull of sweaty teenagers>

'Get you to heaven, Beatrice, get you to 
heaven; here's no place for you maids:' so deliver 
I up my apes, and away to Saint Peter for the 
heavens; he shows me where the bachelors sit, and 
there live we as merry as the day is long.

It is my cousin's duty to make curtsy 
and say 'Father, as it please you.' But yet for all
that, cousin, let him be a handsome fellow, or else 
make another curtsy and say 'Father, as it please 
me.'

Not till God make men of some other metal than
earth. Would it not grieve a woman to be 
overmastered with a pierce of valiant dust? to make 
an account of her life to a clod of wayward marl? 
No, uncle, I'll none: Adam's sons are my brethren; 
and, truly, I hold it a sin to match in my kindred.

I have a good eye, uncle; I can see a church by daylight.

FIN

<Katykrash fate sealed. Eternally yearning; boys dumb; bleh they will never catch up...except in my OTPS lolz>
