Day 03

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


There's a lot of stuff I should be doing. x.x And I'm not exactly - okay, I'm a procrastinator, and I'm completely useless at actual goals. And I also have some highly personal ones that I won't put out here. But the ones I can share...

  • Get some effing data for my effing dissertation.

  • Finish a decent prospectus (only 2 years late, yay) by May.

  • Hopefully have a decent (100pg or more) start by December on the actual dissertation.

  • Find or get a job where I make at least $30k a year.

  • Finish my Teen Wolf story and my shifter!Tony story by December.

  • Complete any challenges I sign up for on time.


wow look at how unrealistic I am.

Day 2

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


So there were quite a few things that really influenced me, but I'll pare it down to the top 3:

  • Harry Potter (specifically, if I'm going to be honest, Lightning on the Wave's retelling of the books)

  • Anne Bishop's Black Jewels series (because, if I'm honest, all my A/B/O ideas originate from here)

  • LeDiableBlanc.com (because this was what really started me reading fanfic and specifically slash fanfic)


There's a lot of other things - movies and universes that I love reading, that influenced my ideas or my plots or honestly a bunch of different things regarding my life.

Though I will give a special mention to Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (the movie). It gave me chills and literally the entire afternoon after I watched it I was sure all the clouds looked like dragons and I was floating around silent and just... stunned, I guess.

Age Meme!

So the way this works is that if you comment on this post with your age (so I don't pick like, 25 and you're 20 or something), I'll give you an age (or two) and you fill in the meme for what your life was like at that age, and then what your life is like now!

Stolen from and prompted by [livejournal.com profile] reeby10, who gave me 16 and 22 (and told me I could pick one, but I don't mind doing both):

I wanted to be: a teacher

At 22...

I drove: Technically still my dad's car, but a black 1996 or 94 (can't remember) Rav-4

I was in a relationship with: still no one

I feared: still terrified of how others percieved me

I worked at: a TA (teacher aide) at my grad school

I wanted to be: this was actually really nebluous, but I wanted to write/publish in the political arena

And now (26)

I live in: Houston, TX

I drive: a silver toyota corolla (still my dad's car, technically)

I am in a relationship with: no one. still. yeppppp.....

Day 5: In your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. How did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity?

Goodness. Trying to remember my fannish origin story. Eesh.

The Very Beginning
Well, it started with X-Men. Specifically, the 90s television show. It also started with Digimon, Power Rangers, Dragonball Z, and my sister. We actually weren't allowed to watch television all that much, so we snuck episodes when we could and built our universe when we couldn't. From there, which was to me like a very early form of roleplaying (verbalized roleplaying, with each of us having different roles [I was Gambit and Logan and she was Android 18 and Sora, for example]), I began writing stories loosely based on the television shows I watched or books I read. One of my earliest attempts at fanfiction - and my only actual finished work from the age of 11 to I think about 19 or 20 - was an 'origin' story of Logan (called Solo in my fic because I was a dramatic teenager). Other ideas included cars that were bodyguards to the descendents of a royal alien line (transformers), a group of pre-teens captured and taken to a French castle and they had to get free in medieval england (Robin Hood) and a ham-fisted attempt at writing a story that wasn't too much like Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail but failed miserably at being distinctive, really.

My Chosen Pseudonym
But I suppose what I really have to thank, for my original name L'Ange Noir, was finding fanfiction on the internet. It was Gambit fanfiction, and it was him in a relationship with Wolverine, which was amazingly hot and dirty to a very young pre-teen who knew exactly what my religion said about such relationships and what my father would do should he catch me sitting on the family computer reading such sites. (I learned how to wipe my history, wipe the site from the internet file folder, and remove any cookies - if there was another way my dad could have found which site I was on, I didn't know it but neither did he.) L'Ange Noir comes from Gambit, and a very old story I had about him - in the comics, Remy LeBeau is sometimes referred to as the Le Diable Blanc, the white devil, because of his eyes. In my fanfiction story, L'Ange Noir was Remy's lover, a winged mutant with black skin. My current fanfic penname is AngeNoir, as I fell out of writing fanfic sometime in the last years of my undergraduate degree, and when I came back it was to Ao3, not the other sites I posted on. Those stories... well, I still know how they end. I remember most, if not everything, about their plots. I just... haven't completed any of them.

Defining Influences
But yeah, without that one author, Ximeria, and another archive, LeDiableBlanc, and one last author who was a defining influence on how I wrote and really started me on my worldbuilding kink, Lightning On the Wave - these three are really the beginning of my origin story in fandom.

So, hello there! This is mainly an account made to help me keep track of writing groups, so not much will be posted here. But you can find my writing at the Ao3 archive under my user name AngeNoir, and you can find out more about me, and my likes, and snippets of writing, on my tumblr under my name outercorner.

So, hi there! This is the livejournal I've thrown together mostly so that I can participate in writing contests that are held, for the most part, through this website. My penname is AngeNoir on Ao3, and I'm also known as outercorner on tumblr. You can always message me if you want to know more about me!
