Hi there, I'm Moon! I'm the Proprietress of these here parts. Nice to meet you! ::waves:: Really, I'm your average fan-type. Been around in various fandoms since early 1996, consider myself "multifandominational and bifictional", which basically means I'll read anything as long as it's well-written. But if you are looking for more about me than that, the only way to find out is to check out some of the places below. Happy hunting!
LiveJournal -- Moonbeam's Fanfiction Predilections
My not-so shiny new LJ, acquired for purposes of the fanfiction variety and now a permanent home. If I ever write anything new, this'll be the place it's posted first. I still check LJ everyday, even if I don't update my own journal very often.
Fanfiction.Net Author's Profile -- Moonbeam's Predilections
My stories archived at FF.Net. Name changed due to FF.Net's new policy. Only the newer stories from certain fandoms will be archvied there. Unfinished WIPs will also start out there before finding their way home to here. However, do be a dear and check out my Favourites lists? All are darn good gems not to be missed!
Pinboard Anti-Social Bookmarks -- moonbeamsfanfic
My ever-growing and heavily cross-indexed account of story links with complete summaries and tags. This is my massive list of multifandom fanfiction recommendations, and what I turn to myself when looking for a good read. Currently over two thousand stories in at least 100 fandoms, with more added every day. Switched from Delicious to Pinboard along with most users during the Great Delicious Migration. (I do for the moment still have a valid Delicious account under the same name, and it is occasionally being updated, but it is no longer my primary fic rec system. Besides, Pinboard's owner/developer Maciej has been awesome welcoming the world of fandom to his service and doing everything he can to accommodate our needs. I'm happier with him than I ever was with Delicious!)
Archive Of Our Own -- Moonbeam (moonbeamsfanfic)
According to the OTW's own intro: "The Archive of Our Own is a fan-created, fan-run, non-profit, non-commercial archive for transformative fanworks, such as fanfiction and fanart." These are my stories home on the AO3 archive, with as many appropriate tags as I felt like adding. Read in chapters or in whole, download as ePUB/PDF, comment or leave kudos.
Moonbeam's Preferred Fandom Pairings
Is just what it sounds like. To give you a clue what you'll find here relationship-wise, here's a listing of my main fandom OTPs and whatnot from over 65 fandoms. Is neither totally inclusive nor totally exclusive of course, just a general idea but it should be enough to get you started.
The most popular part of my site! A large cross-indexed glossary of terms and definitions of all that strange vernacular we see peppered throughout our fanfiction, both common to all fandoms and/or specific to certain fandoms. Makes a great introductory guide for new fans! Also good for those of us who have been around for a while and yet still stumble across something new to look up. Please don't hesitate to suggest a term if you think I'm missing one!
Fanfiction Archive Quicklinks
A simple guide to all the major and minor fanfiction archives of multiple fandoms, with a brief description of the archive's contents included. Your one-stop guide to massive amounts of fanfic in whatever fandom tickles your (or at least my) fancy. Just pick the archive for you!
Plot-Bunnies Breeding Ground
These ideas represent stories I would like to see. Some have full plots and have already been started, others are barely more than faint whispers. They may or may not be written sometime in the next ten years or so. If you want to borrow an idea and write it yourself, feel free--but let me know so that I can read it when it's done! ^_~
And finally, welcome to...
Moon's Secret Lair
An extensive mountain cavern, owned and operated by Moonbeam, the Secret Lair is a hidden labyrinth of wonder! It's exact location is classified from all but the authors and readers of our favorite fandoms — and, of course, our favorite fandom characters. C'mon in, and join the fun!
