2007 - the year my ex-fiance introduced me to Doctor Who, which was the fandom in which I finally, fully, broke most of the blocks and insecurities left over from late 2005. Cue much fic, much porn (thank you, Captain Harkness), and much fun.

I also, to my tremendous surprise, got sucked back into Harry Potter, which I swore up and down would never happen, due to Deathly Hallows and all the backstory it provided on Albus Dumbledore, who had long been one of my favorite characters, and his ex old friend Gellert Grindelwald. I am reasonably certain that I was the first person to post Albus/Gellert smut as a result. (Yes, long before Rowling outed Dumbledore. Though I was, when that news came out, driving around Davis Square and shouting out my windows at random passers-by, "DUMBLEDORE'S GAY!!")

There's a goodly amount of stuff from this year that I haven't officially revised and posted yet, so this section will probably expand considerably come time. The working life frequently eats me for weeks or months at a time, and I've had a number of non-fanfiction projects noodling about as well.
