A very simple place for my stuff.
All good things must end: this archive will be closing as of November 2016. To preserve the archive, members began manually importing its works to the AO3 as an Open Doors-approved project in March 2016. You can find the content in the new collection on the AO3. Please update your bookmarks!
A couple of Fringe fics, and a new page for them! Young Justice, Firefly, and The King's Speech bits, plus a Fearful Symmetry drabble from last year, and working on more. Ao3 notations on fic archived there.
Journal. I've succumbed to the meme.

By popular demand: Actually, because Alestar
made me. :p
I'm Kerithwyn Jade, better known as 'rith.
Who am I?
Heck, does it matter? I love comics, always have. I was reading comics when girls just didn't *do* that kind of thing and we were eyed as alien invaders when we dared to broach the inner sanctum of the comic shops.
Like so many others, I grew up reading the X-Men. For a long time that was the only game in town. Eventually I found other comics that drew me nearly as powerfully, and that was a good thing, because the X-Men had lost their charm--and yeah, that was while Chris Claremont was still writing.
A couple of years years ago I discovered the Legion of Super-Heroes, and they utterly supplanted the mutants forever as my most cherished comic team. I love team books; the dynamic between characters remains as fascinating as ever, though the players change. I can't resist the good runs of Avengers and Titans, and Busiek's Thunderbolts, the Levitz Legion, and yes, Claremont's X-Men.
Then there are the individual characters: Nightwing and Robin and Oracle (thanks to Chuck Dixon), Arsenal (thanks to Devin Grayson), Tempest (thanks to Phil Jimenez), and too many of the Legionnaires to name. I love these characters--these people. They're part of my life, fictional though they may be. What a wonder it was to discover the Internet and (pardon) legions of fans who felt as I did, and who expressed that love in writing. Not for publication or money or fame, but for *fun.*
And now I'm having fun, too.
