First entry on LiveJournal, even though I created my account months ago.  I haven't a clue about how to use the various features but I guess I'll figure it out as I go.

I've been resisting this for a long, long time.  As it is, I spend way too many hours on fannish interests.  But I've been reading, and relishing, the work of a number of fanfic writers who post here and I thought it was only fair that I establish a presence and begin to carry my weight, as it were, in the community.  Think of this initial entry as an arrival to a party that's in full swing by a shy person who doesn't know anyone else in the room.

I'm a very long-time fan, first of Star Trek (Original) and then of Starsky & Hutch, The X-Files and Stargate SG-1, and a once-upon-a-time and maybe-soon-to-be-again slash writer in all these fandoms except S&H.  RL issues caused me to drop out of active fandom in a very precipitous way, a few years ago, and I've been a little nervous about trying to return.  The YahooGroups on which I once was active have mostly disappeared, or changed beyond recognition.  In some cases the fandoms themselves have changed beyond recognition--and the fanfic that once was so abundant, and so much of which was so good, is no more.  

These days, most of my reading of new fic takes place in SG-1, and it seems that LJ is the place where the most creative SG-1 material shows up.  Thank GOD for 

[personal profile] synecdochic and [profile] princessofg and [personal profile] paian   and everyone else still creating wonderful fic in this fandom.  I'm pleased to be here and look forward to getting to know everyone better in the weeks and months to come.  Can't promise to be a frequent poster but I'm hoping at least to have time to comment on some fic and maybe put up a little of my own writing.
