2/22/10- I've been a huge fan of the Pretender since the beginning, and wrote a lot of my fanfics while it was airing. Then I got busy with college and working, and it sadly fell by the wayside. I've had a few favorite shows since the Pretender (namely Alias, Smallville, and Dollhouse), but none that affected me so strongly that I wrote fics for them. I did write 2 for The Lost World, but that's it. The Pretender is just special, I guess.
I recently got all 4 seasons and the 2 movies on DVD, and watched them all within less than a month! =) It's safe to say my Pretender obsession is back stronger than ever, and rewatching it all definately inspired me to pick up the pen again... currently working on another story (and probably more) for the Cooking with Madeline series, continuing where we left off in season 3 (with a brief jump back to season 2 for a Toy Surprise- inspired part). And with any luck, I'll finish another story or two I had plans for, but never got around to finishing outside of my overactive little head. My favorite characters are Miss Parker, Angelo, and Thomas... originally, Mr Lyle was my absolute favorite but rewatching it all now, it's hard to see past all his evil like I could back when it was spread out over a couple of seasons. LOL
I like to write my fics while listening to the Pretender soundtrack, along with a couple other songs that remind me of the Pretender... like Broots' P-Funk. =)
Then I was a student, now I'm a 29 year old chef with 2 cats I'm crazy about. I work dinners Tuesday- Saturday, and it's a crazy job but I love it. I'm a total night owl. I was so psyched when I found this site and realized all my stories are still around, as well as many of the authors I knew way back when. I'm slowly getting caught up on all the great new fics and authors here, as well as exploring all the other great pieces of the PretenderCentre.
If anyone's interested in being my beta reader, please let me know. I'll be happy to be yours, too.
