Introduction




When I asked Sascha how I should do this, he said, "Just tell your fans what
they want to hear." So, I replied, "What fans?" But, seriously, I don't know
how I'm going to begin or end this, so if I start rambling, just stick with
me.

First, the default question on every `about the author` on this page is "Why
do you do it?" I'm not going to give you some long-winded speech about how I
wanted to make known my feelings on how it would end or how I wanted to keep
the show alive in my heart or what have you (all of which is true by the way).
The answer is short and simply that I love to write and I love the show. For
almost my entire 18 years on this earth, I've enjoyed writing. It's just one
of my hobbies (the other being playing drums - just thought you'd like to know
that, although I'm really just tooting my horn). So, this whole fan-fiction
site interested me because I could "publish" my work, for lack of a better
word.

Anyway, with that said, what about me? Me! Me! Me! Well, I'm a college student
at Temple University in Philadelphia where I've lived my entire life. My major
is Film and Media Arts, what else? And that's basically it. I don't have
anything special to add.

What am I doing now? I'm starting on my 5th story of which I have the basic
plots and pretty much every scene laid out, just gotta add the words. And no,
I'm not gonna update this when Sascha adds that story to the page.

Well, I doubt anyone got past the second paragraph, but if you're still
reading, then thanks for stayin' with me, I appreciate it. And if anyone has
any comments on this or any of my stories, please drop me a line. Even if you
read one of my stories and hated it beyond belief, it makes me feel good that
*someone* is reading them. So, thanks. Have a good one. Bye now.
