Formerly rainchild_ai

My inactive, back-up insanejournal account (in case of the LJ apocalypse) is rainchild_ai.

I am a female of an undisclosed age that is between 20 and 25, and I live in an undisclosed part of the US (don't you feel informed?). My journal was on hiatus for a number of years, but I'm back now. My current obsession is Merlin, and I could always use Merlin fandom friends. :D Merlin/Arthur is my OTP, but I have a soft spot triangle!Arthur/Merlin/Morgana, Merlin/Morgana, and Uther/Merlin. I am a mod for the [community profile] merlin_us and [profile] camelot_recs comms.

I got into fandom by googling (or would it have been alta-vista-ing?) "Digimon" back in 1999. Much to my surprise, I discovered that people wrote stories about Digimon that weren't even official. I scoured DigiWorld Canada and whatever Digimon shrines I came across for fanfic, ANY fanfic. It was marvelous, and I was completely oblivious to grammar, quality, pairings, or any other minor concerns.

Eventually I stumbled onto the (at the time) wonderful ffnet. With so many stories, I could finally be selective! Matt/Tai friendship was my thing, but I avoided yaoi. Then one day I read a Matt/Tai friendship fic that ended in this weird scene with Tai putting his arm around Matt. In retrospect, that was my first slash fic. (And I wish I could track it down, I've tried so many times!) I registered for ffnet in 2001, which means I was around for the NC-17 purge, and actually had one of my stories taken down (which tells you I'm either old or I was very not 17...).

After Digimon, I moved on to the Harry Potter fandom. (novels! quality stories! *gasp*) I got LiveJournal in 2002 and went to my first (and only, for now) convention in 2003, Nimbus. Next came the Stargate SG-1 fandom (*hearts Daniel*), and then back to the Harry Potter fandom. I took a few years off from fandoms and LJ, but hopped back in from time to time for Digimon Frontier and Naruto.

Now I'm back (for good this time), all thanks to Merlin.

Past fandoms and OTPs: Merlin (Arthur/Merlin), Harry Potter (Harry/Draco, Harry/Ron), Stargate SG1 (Jack/Daniel), Digimon Adventure (Taito), Digimon Frontier (Takouji), Naruto (Sasunaru).
