Day 10
In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Make a recs list, create a Fanlore page for them, link to their archives or masterlists or websites. It can be a detailed, thoughtful analysis, or a squeeful, joyful post. Or maybe a combination of the two.

It was hard to choose for this, since there are so many awesome folks in fandom. But I shall choose [ profile] rj_anderson.

It's not just because her fanwork appears multiple times on my Best-of recs page, in more than one fandom. Though that's certainly one of the reasons. I can't remember which of her works I read first, though I think it was probably her author-created-11th-Doctor stories (taken down a while back for Reasons). Every word was polished like a jewel. And then there's "Possessions", her awesome X-Files story, which is again vivid and deep.

But I just realized, in looking back at some of my reviews of her fanwork that she's been responsible for changing my mind about characters - more than once. And one of those characters was Severus Snape, and not only that, Severus Snape in a romantic context (in her "Darkness and Light" series). Which means that she's indirectly responsible for my current love of SS/HG.

Here's to people who make us love the characters even more!

(Of course, she isn't writing much fic nowadays, because she's Gone Pro. But I don't begrudge that, because that's more awesome stuff that she's writing that I can read!)

Must admit, I've never read any of her fanfic (I ought to, really), but I love her Faery novels, and I've got Ultraviolet sitting in my "to be read" pile.
