This is a mega-cool idea for a meme, although like [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 (from whom I gacked it just now) I think I'm going to have a hard time answering it for anybody else. Still:

Pretend for a minute that the only contact you have ever had with me is through my fic. We've never exchanged LJ comments or emails, never hung out in chat or on IM, never talked on the phone or met each other at a convention, none of that stuff. The only thing you know about me is the kind of fic I write. Based on the way I write my characters, and the way they speak, think, and behave, what does that say to you about what kind of person I am, my attitudes and opinions about real-life issues?

And speaking of fic, I just finished the last chapter of "Galatea" today and it's off to the beta-readers, so I hope to have it up here in another couple of days. Yay!

Mid-way through the D&L trilogy, I began to suspect that you might be a Christian...I think the fact that Snape and Maud didn't jump into bed at first opportunity was a clue. :P

I had those same thoughts, Katinka! :D I also assumed that you were an adult- the D&L trilogy has a maturity about it that only comes through living life and experiencing things.

I'd think you were a 45-year-old dude with a major thing for much younger women.

okay, not really.

*snorts at your icon*

*snorts doubly at your post*

Yeah, baby, you found me out. That chick you met when you were up here, she was totally a plant.

Judging from the characterisation of Mulder and Scully in "Posessions", you're someone who believes that deep love doesn't require there to be a sexual component of that. Judging from the Doctor and Thea's marriage, you consider sex to be a great gift, a culmination of a commitment which is marriage. Adding in the titles "Sacred Rites", "Pennance", "Sacrifice" and "Communion" and one could guess that you're a Christian in a traditional/conservative denomination. On the other hand, it can't be too conservative, or you wouldn't be writing fan fiction at all.

The remarks that Thea makes about her home town, and the descriptions of it, hint that you've either lived there or at least stayed there, which do leave a clue that you could be Canadian.

D&L sticks out most in my mind when I think of you, too, since it was the first thing of yours I'd ever read. Roughly in the order these thoughts occurred to me:

Definitely an adult, and female. Talented writer, with an appreciation for subtlety and grace in style. Funny! I love her sense of humor. Very creative, able to take existing material and make it her own. But she also pays attention to detail, and so doesn't write anything that makes little red "OOC" or "Huh?" flags pop up in my mind.

If not Christian, then at least conservative. Doesn't seem to have a problem with romantic age gaps...and strangely, she's making that not bother ME, either. Has realistic expectations of people, both in romantic situations and out of them. I love Maud--I've never met a heroine like her. Strong but patient, talented but meek. This is the way women *really* act, or at least how they *should* act.

After I met you in D&L, I found your blog and so got to see a little more of what you might be like in RL. But even just from your other fic (DW--which I never saw but you have singlehandedly made me love--and Alias, especially), I saw that you were even funnier than I first expected and had a deep appreciation for snark. You aren't afraid of putting your characters through uncomfortable circumstances--death, manipulation, disappointment, abuse--to make them more sympathetic or to improve them.

Just from your fic, the biggest impressions I got:

I wish I could read a whole novel of your writing, and I wish I could get to know you better as a person. :)

So far I think I've only read one of your Doctor Who stories and the first part of Galatea (which I'm looking forward to the rest of, but I've been too busy for much LJ-ing). But from those I would guess that you're incredibly talented and a perfectionist, and that you like puzzles.
