Aspects of My Life

Cosplay

I love going around cons dressed as characters! I feel more myself when I'm in costume than when I'm hiding behind my mundane work clothes.

Aces and Aced It!

What successful single woman hasn't at one point been asked "when are you going to find a husband and settle down?"

After years of not ever looking (and not caring) about finding a husband, I realized I was an aromantic asexual. Then came the next hard question: how does one measure success in her life when she has no intention of finding a husband or having children? And thus a show was born- not because I knew the answer, but because I asked the question.

Check out my short comedic films about asexuals surviving in a hyper-sexual world.

Fan Fiction


I've been slowly collecting my fanfic on fanfiction.net and have over 50 stories. I have two usernames there: valeriebean and slashbean. The first account has canon pairings and general fiction, the second has slash pairings. Ratings are G to NC-17, and marked for each story. I've written for the following fandoms:
valeriebean: Firefly
 Chuck
 Big Bang Theory
 The New Normal
 Torchwood
 Supernatural
slashbean: Stargate Atlantis
 Firefly
