no man is an island

entire of itself

Hi! I am terrifically shy but I promise I don't bite.

If you are wondering things about me: my name is Kate, and I'm a biromantic demisexual lady-type person with a variety of fun brain problems (not actually fun); I feel about science like the shy plain kid in the corner feels about the most popular, best-looking person in school; history is my best friend with occasional benefits; and the English language and I are going to have beautiful children and grow old together, possibly telling hideously embarrassing stories at our great-grandchildren's graduations.

You can now also find me on dreamwidth as [personal profile] nonisland!


Fan, in the fanworks-producing sense, of underdeveloped and/or cheesy SF/F television; fan, in the original sense, of most anything in any medium with excellent stories/characters/premises/awesome/fun. Basically, I am spectacularly easy. :D

I started writing fanfic in February 2010 for Stargate Atlantis, and currently lurk/inconspicuously write in a variety of fandoms, past and present, which are listed in a bit more detail on my currently-on-hiatus tumblr. You can find my fic at the Archive of Our Own (linked above or below or wherever it is they keep the journal-owner's website these days), if you're interested.

I tend to write things that haven't been done over and over and over, in no small part because the things that have been done over and over and over have inevitably been done by people who have handled them much more brilliantly than I ever would or could, and I have neither desire nor need to bring coals to Newcastle.


I give blanket permission for fanworks (including but not limited to fanart, podfic, remixes, missing or alternate scenes, sequels, & translations) of any of my fic. I'd love to be notified—because I'd find it immensely flattering—but I don't require that as a condition.


me, to a friend, on the subject of Yet Another New Fandom: "Also ONCE AGAIN I would not actually be writing the super-obvious pairing because TINY UNLOVED SHIPS ARE MY NAVAL FLEET OF CHOICE AND AWESOMENESS. (They are less my naval fleet of choice and more "when the hell did I end up on a boat", actually.) I GET SUPER-DRUNK ON AND/OR BASHED OVER THE HEAD BY THE AWESOME. AND THEN I WAKE UP AND WTFBOAT."

(There goes my attempt to keep this profile dignified and elegant.)


Should you find something, whilst reading one of my stories, that offends you/is incorrect/could offend others/is in any way problematic, please please please do not hesitate to tell me. I will never spew hate at you, I will never attack you, and I will always thank you for taking the time to let me know. (note on problematic content composed by gyzym & used with permission)
