I was born in 1990. I'm from Riga, and my first language is Latvian. My favorite pastime in theory, and the one I studied, is thinking about books. My favorite pastime in practice seems to be obsessing over Spike. :) That and yoga. I translate technical texts and software interfaces for a living.

I watched Buffy in late 2014 and fell into the Spuffy abyss in mid-season 5. It's comfy here, as I'm sure you know. I read oodles of fan fiction, make simple kinds of fanart sometimes, and am gradually trying my hand at writing.

My fandom activity is roughly half Spuffy, half other stuff. I keep lists of my other stuff pinned at the top of my Dreamwidth journal, and the fic tends to end up on AO3.

I contribute to the Sunnydale Herald Newsletter. You can send us links to new Buffyverse stuff, and we might include them in the newsletter so more people notice! (We get notified of EF fic automatically.)

I'm also one of the mods of Seasonal Spuffy, a seasonal community for new Spuffy fanworks of any format. We're always delighted to have new participants (and supportive onlookers)!
