[personal profile] corbae

My name is Erin. I'm 25 and have lived in North Carolina for my entire life except a semester spent in Sheffield, England. When I was growing up I wanted nothing more than to move away; I was going to go out-of-state for college until I realized how expensive it was and how good some of our local schools were. I'm fiercely defensive of my state, fucked-up as it is, and feel more connected to the South the older I get. I even sort of like the humidity now.

I work in online customer service and hate it; I'm applying to library science programs with the goal of doing something I love with my life instead. I'm a volunteer DJ at a college radio station, and I met the woman who is currently my closest NC friend there. DJ K and I eat at cool restaurants and go to shows. She's not fannish herself, but she doesn't mind when I talk about Yuletide or Teen Wolf or whatever.

I've been in fandom since I was 11 or 12 and my friends and I all got into Gundam Wing (and other anime, but the first fic I read was definitely Gundam). I read in most of the major fandoms from about LotR on, but I didn't really participate in the community until bandom. It was through random that I met [personal profile] kinetikatrue (waiting to sober up outside a Young Veins & Foxy Shazam show so I could drive [personal profile] intrepidcat home) and discovered that we'd done art for the same Bandom Big Bang story. A bit later, Kat invited me to a game night at [personal profile] sansets' house and I met Team DC.

This picture of me was taken in October at a Peelander-Z show. I have never looked so cool.

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Purest Element But It's So Volatile, a Ryan/Spencer story for BRBB. I struggled with this story a lot because the mix had so much packed into it, a lot of it painful, and I wasn't sure I could do it justice. I'm still not sure I did, honestly, but the story I wrote was out of my comfort zone and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Build A House Inside of You, a Derek/Stiles fanmix about two fucked-up people in a relationship that's failing because they refuse to deal with their own issues, their subsequent breakup, and their eventual reconciliation after some therapy and/or self-actualization. My 8tracks summary was more succinct. This was my first Teen Wolf mix and I worked on it for.fucking.ever.

sweaty sheets and an ocean view, art for TWHeatWave that's vaguely Derek/Stiles. This was the first drawing I completed in, gosh, at least a year, I think? So that was a pretty big deal. I also pushed myself more with the posing, the background, and the colors than I have in years.
