Day 5

In your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. How did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity?

I started writing and reading fic with Harry Potter, then discovered Doctor Who which I didn't properly write for but it provided a bridge to Life on Mars fandom, where I have been content writing fic for nearly 8 years now. There has been the odd foray into Torchwood, Starsky and Hutch and Cabin Pressure, but I've always come back to LoM. Just in the past six months I've discovered Person of Interest and been completely captivated by it.

My name is...I find it a great comfort that... however far away I am from people I love, barring a sudden relocation to an alien planet, we will always be under the same sky. Sky became my fannish nickname slightly by accident, but after several years I feel like I fully own it. I love meeting up with my best fannish friends and hearing them call me Sky in person.

Love the story about your name! It reminds me of that song from that movie, you know the one. :) Um..."Somewhere Out There", that's it.

It's a beautiful name, and a comforting reason behind it. :)
