Picked up from nihilistbear, but it originated with irishrose1


March 6 through March 13

Post to your LJ each day at least one of your favorite fanfic authors and why you love them, their work, and why they need more appreciation.


I'm going to start off with Alice (nihilistbear) herself. She's taken a break from writing recently due to pressure of work and college, computer problems, and her midterm exams, but I'm sure she'll pick it up again soon. Hopefully, anyway.

A beautiful writer, with a tremendous gift for getting right into the skins of the characters and making them come totally to life on the page (screen). Her "A day in the life of someone just like me" and "A Cold and Broken Hallelujah" are almost incomparable.

And she's a fun person too, bubbly and witty and snarky and full of personality, a great essay writer and ranter. To quote Tom Petty "Close your eyes, 'cause we're going to the world of Alice".

Current Mood: okay okay
Current Music: Tom Petty, "Don't Come Around Here No More"

Is than an actual Tom Petty quote? Huh. Cool.

I like nihilistbear lots, too. :)

It's from a live concert recording that I saw on TV but which I'm pretty sure is available on DVD. Not in one of the songs, it's his introduction to them playing "Don't Come Around Here No More".

ITA. nihilistbear is a favorite writer of mine, too. In addition to A Cold and Broken Hallelujah, I'm fond of Slide and Under the Bridge. I hope, with more time she'll return to fanfic writing.

Oh, thanks! Thnaks so veey much! I admire your writing a lot, so knowing you consider me one of your favourites is just... I'm going off to this corner and not in any way crying.

He's right. The Sweetest Thing is just so good - I'm hoping you'll get some work/exam free time sometime to get another couple of chapters of Book 2 done. I'm not sure about doing this recommend a writer thing, as I'm not always good at remembering which writers are my favourites because I'm terribly disorganized(!) - but Reconstruction is definitely one of my most anticipated WIPs.

OT. Sorry to barge in on you.

I saw kantayra's glowing recommendation in her "Author Appreciation Week" post of the day, and off I went to read your stuff.
Now I'm so amused that I simply must friend you. Nothing less will do.
