Hello there yay


My name is Sari and I'm technically too young to love BtVS.

I turned ten the year the show concluded if you want to do the calculations on my age. That also means I was absolutely old enough to binge-watch the entire show during the madness of quarantine in May 2020. I had three weeks of vacation time that I couldn't use to travel (as had been the original plan) so I had myself some tv therapy instead. 

I fell head over heels in love with the fandom, and a writer friend (I’d been writing OF since I learned my letters) suggested I channel that love into fanfic, to which I said NO WAY I’M A FAN VIDEO PERSON, then proceeded to write my first fic a month later (oops).

I lurked and only wrote the occasional event fic for the subsequent two years—until I joined the Discord in summer of 2022. Since then, I’ve been writing regularly again and I am loving it. I’m happy to have found a fandom home on EF and hope to be around for a long time.
