Attendee Spotlight - @Raffinie

I'm so excited to introduce you to my TFMU roommate, Raffinie (Ashley) :)

Hello, hello...

Finally paid fees and booked my flight, so I can stop being indecisive about whether or not I'm GOIN TO VEGAS LADIES!

Not a writer, just a reader. I have beta'd a few one-shots, but other than that I just scour the nets for the good words. I've been reading twific since probably around 2008. The first fics I read are probably no longer available sadly (on anyway) but the first one that I really remember leaving an impression was Creature of Habit by EZRocksAngel. My favorite fics are a mix of ironic humor and bittersweet angst, and I don't really have a preference either way for AU/AH/Canon as long as the story is good. I'm not a huge fluff fan, but I can bear it occasionally. I love a well-researched historical fic, especially if I learn some cool historical facts in the process.

I'm most looking forward to the Twific Meetup so that I can leg-hump my dear friend Aleighy in person (AHHHH!!!!), and also to eat all the delicious things and drink a martini wearing a killer dress that I have nowhere to wear in my normal life. (still kicking myself for letting go of the Jessica Rabbit dress)

I've never been to Vegas, but my husband has already begun incessantly informing me how unbearably hot it will be and how I'll have to pay eleventy-billion dollars for a cocktail, but I DON'T EVEN CARE I'M GOING TO VEGAS!

I am a soon-to-be (20 more days til my bday) 27 year old, wife & mother of one small dragon baby, also known as my son Olin. He's the greatest. I have a dog, but he's been demoted since my son was born, so now he's just "the husband's dog." I work full time and for some reason thought it would also be awesome to enroll in grad school with a new baby running around the house terrorizing aforementioned dog, so my fic reading is done between essays and finals and bath time. Most days I wonder "what is my life?"

Lastly, if I could be any FicBella, I'd want to be "spark"-ella from bluebathrobe's Tropic of Virgo so I could sing like molasses and honey and write lovely songs with WriterWard.

Can't wait to be leg-humped, sweets. :)

YOU'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME! Please send your spotlight to:
