I am a science fiction writer, wannabe indie filmmaker, fic writer, fan, and casual literary critic interested in blurring the lines between original and derivative/fan production.

As of 2014, I'm conceiving of this journal (and the LiveJournal it cross posts to) as my personal blog, where most new entries will be restricted to my access list and I will continue to blather on with much the same random pop culture criticism and miscellaneous observations as I have since the old LJ days. I am pretty liberal about adding people, if you wish to be added. For my somewhat more professionalized entries (reviews, slightly more formal meta, posts on my writing and filmmaking), see my Goodreads blog. My more recent fic is generally going straight to An Archive of Our Own under the name "labingi."

Blanket fic disclaimer: I do not own, want to own, or claim to own any copyright rights to anything that I did not originate. I won't sue anyone over any of it, and I won't profit either. I do firmly believe I have a moral right to make stories based on preexisting stories; that need defines 99% of human narrative output and to say we shouldn't do it is like saying we shouldn't learn to speak because someone else has already used words before us.

My science fiction novel, The Hour before Morning, is now available in print and e-book form. My website has details:
