did you say hello?

Okay, so apparently I'm supposed to do an introduction thingie. Here goes.

My name's Allie, better known on the internet as Lilith, lilithchilde, clytie, or modestyavaunt. If I have to have a bird codename, I'll go with Chick-A-Dee. (I was tempted to go with Chicky Baby, so shush. I'm in an odd mood.)

I'm a 21-year-old Massachussetts liberal, amateur cartoonist and aspiring novelist, and queer as a three dollar bill. Most of the time, anyway. Like Paige, I'm about to start my senior year at Smith College, where I'm working on a B.A. in English (what is my life s'posed to be?), though I just did a semester at King's College London. I've been more or less in fandom since I was fifteen, and I've been hanging around since. I don't write much fic, but I do occasionally draw fanart (particularly for X-Men and Harry Potter, for some reason), and I make a mean (thorough) beta. I'm a consummate lurker in most of my fandoms, and also identify as a "fandom slut," meaning that I could take an entire post just describing everything I do or would read for. Mostly I read slash, though I have a couple of treasured het pairings.

Right, so down to the questions.

-Do you have any rare fandom loves?
I don't think Good Omens counts as rare anymore. It used to. Hmmm. Blackadder, Pretty Guardian Sailormoon (live action), Kim Possible, Runaways, Empire Records, Patricia C. Wrede's The Raven Ring (if only someone would slash this), Blue Monday, (ditto), The Adventure of Sherlocke Holmes' Smarter Brother (if only someone else liked this), Arthurian Legends . . . lots of stuff. Also, while being a fan of X-Men comics is hardly rare, my favorite pairing is. See below.

-Do you have any fandom hates?
Hmmm. Okay, I hate The Sentinel. My fandom partner-in-crime made me watch it, as she loves the fic, but I can't stand it. Also, I've never found incest appealing. And I must be one of the only Harry Potter slash fans who is turned way off by Harry/Snape. I'm quite without interest in RPF of any kind, though that's not at all a "hate," just a preference.

-Do you have any OTPs or OT3s...or OT4s?
Oh, for practically everything. Let's see.
Good Omens: Crowley/Aziraphale
Harry Potter: Remus/Sirius, Ron/Hermione, sometimes Trio, and um, Harry/Draco (mildly ashamed)
BtVS/Angel: Buffy/Faith, Gunn/Wesley
due South: Fraser/Vecchio
PoTC: Jack/Will/Elizabeth, though lately I've been hearing the siren call of Sparrow/Norrington
X-Men comics: Rachel "Marvel Girl" Grey (formerly Rachel "Phoenix" Summers)/Kitty "Shadowcat" Pryde
DCU/Smallville: Clark/Lex, Tim/Kon, Cassie/Cissie, Wally/John (on JL)
Stargate: Atlantis: Sheppard/McKay
Veronica Mars: Veronica/Lilly, Veronica/Logan
Firefly: Kaylee/Inara, Mal/Simon, Zoe/Wash
Farscape: John/Aeryn
Sports Night: Dan/Casey
PGSM: Minako (Venus)/Rei (Mars)
Kim Possible: Kim/Shego
Runaways: Karolina (Lucy In The Sky)/Nico (Sister Grimm)
The Raven Ring: Karvonnen/Daner
Arthurian Legends: Arthur/Lancelot, Guinevere/Morgan Le Fay
Labyrinth: Jareth/Sarah (on the rare occasion when it's done right)

I have 'ships for just about everything I've read or watched, honestly.

Sure, though I might prefer to, say, beta-read crossovers of doom. Or maybe doodle a few illustrations. I really don't write fic much unless it's for, say, yuletide; I'm not that great at it, and I prefer to save my creative energy for my comics.

-Do you just wanna look cool by being in a Sekrit Cadre?
Oh, totally. Besides, I adore rhipowered and ladyvivien. Where you lead . . . I will fol-low . . .

Yeahhh. :)

ETA: Oh! I forgot this: I've got a fairly varied and extensive recs page, which I should be updating soon (mostly with lots of Stargate: Atlantis fic).
