I'm one of the site administrators, specializing in member relations, so if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to chat, feel free to drop me a PM or an email! I'm always happy to hear from you.

About me as a fan: I watched BtVS first as a young teen, and saw it in bits and pieces. I rewatched it in full as an adult and then - desperate for more Spuffy - found EF, though I never initially planned to add anything to this lovely community beyond some lurksome reading. (Clearly, my plan went happily and utterly pear-shaped. heart)

About me as an author: Canon divergence and I, we're best buds. In terms of mood, I span everything from lighthearted and silly, to heavy and dark, to just plain weird. Writing is an exploration, and I enjoy treating it as such.

I'm also a complete romantic, so if you start reading a story of mine that seems tough, keep that in mind. I won't ever break characters just to break them. I much prefer exploring how growth happens, and the many different ways our favorite pair can find each other and change each other and, in the end, change themselves.

If you want to hear me ramble about ADKoH/the Jumpverse/my writing process, you can do so here! 

On community member request, I've created a ko-fi account, so if you feel like buying me a cup of coffee, any and all caffeine donations are accepted with immense gratitude.

About me as an artist: I make banners! You can get a good read on my style from my listing of stories (most of which use my own banners) or from my banner artist listing. If you're interested in having a banner made from me, just drop me a PM!

I also enjoy making other Spuffy designs in my spare time, so if you're interested in those, you can find them here!

Cheers and much love,

OYB
