Miscellaneous Fandoms - sometimes I get hit out of the blue by an idea for a fandom I otherwise have no interest in writing in. Because I don't always write or join the fandom for everything I watch and enjoy--then I'd be even more scattered and overloaded! Rurouni Kenshin (mistranslated in the US as Samurai X), for example, I absolutely loved in the second story arc, but other than the brief crackfic below and some extremely abstract Sojiro headsurfing I'm unlikely to finish, I never had much urge to write in it.

C.S. Friedman's delightfully melodramatic science fantasy Coldfire Trilogy is an even more extreme case: the story below sideswiped me out of nowhere, and I have no other involvement in the fandom or interest in writing in it whatsoever. But again, not to say I didn't enjoy the books!

Star Trek, on the other hand, I have a good deal more writing in, but most of it is either exceedingly old and immature or exceedingly fragmented. I've been in that fandom in various ways, off and on, since I was a small child; it's one of those, like Myst or Utena, which always sticks with me. But I seem to be terminally unable to, y'know, finish anything. Thus there's only one Trek fic on this site; thus it is technically filed under miscellany until I finish more.

"She was a shadow and a whisper in his mind, chitter-sharp spine and red lights in the green steaming dark, promising the impossible, the unthinkable, what he had shied away from all his life--unity."
