First, where you can find me:
MeWe – I don’t use facebook as a social media platform any longer. Instead, you can find me on MeWe.
Twitter – but as of this page creation, I never tweet except to save my favorite dancer. That could change someday.
Dreamwidth – I moved on from LiveJournal, so this is where I sometimes stash stuff. I don’t use it much.
NaNoWriMo – This is my author profile on the NaNo site.
JJ Morrison is where you can find my original works.
I’m a writer.
I’ve been writing since I was twelve and making up stories in my head as far back as I can remember. Between my work and fiction, I’ve written a fuck ton.
Though I started with creative writing at 12, I didn’t start writing fanfiction until 1999. I started reading fanfic in ’98, so the path to fanfic writer was pretty short.
I retired my first fanfiction pen name sometime late 2007 — and no, I won’t tell anyone what it was. I’m not trying to mislead anyone, but I had some unfortunate experiences that left me vulnerable and I had to abandon my original pen name.
You can call me Jillian, Jilly, or JJ. I hate being called Jill. Seriously, don’t do it. Close friends sometimes call me Jilly Bean. My Internet Spouse says my full name is: Lady Jilly of Bean, Mistress of Dragons and Princess of the Biting Politeness. There’s a warning buried in that name. Heed it.
I generally prefer to write slash. I skew toward m/m because there aren’t a lot of fictional female characters I’m interested in writing about. In part becuase there’s just a lack of good female characters, but also because when I do find a female character I like, it’s usually in a show where I’m happy with the character’s canon.
Back in the day, I started with one fandom and didn’t branch out for the longest time (read: about 5 years) but then I discovered the mighty crossover. I am a crossover whore. I was incepted to all other fandoms through some crossover route, and now I have more fandoms than I can keep up with!
I prefer to read slash, but read a lot of gen, too. Not much het—for a variety of reasons that don’t have anything to do with it being het. But more some of the stuff that goes along with. I have to know the writer to go there.
I don’t really have any OTPs. More like a set of NoTPs — Like Ginny/Harry (shudders). I guess you could say I have OTCs (One True Character). I focus on that one character that captures my attention and then read them with just about anyone (sans family members!).
My favorite fictional character of all time is Bruce (or David) Banner, but I don’t tend to write much fanfic about Bruce. I just love him. My favorite characters I will break out the keyboard for are: Tony DiNozzo, Tony Stark, Stiles Stilinski, Noah Stilinski, Bilbo Baggins, Xander Harris, Ezra Standish, Vin Tanner, Shawn Spencer.
Fandoms I read broadly:
Teen Wolf (TV show)
Magnificent 7 (mostly modern AU)
Fandoms I read depending on author and recommendation:
just about any other fandom…
Because my reading tastes are broad, my creative interest wanders around like a 7-year-old with ADHD.
If you have a question about me, feel free to leave a comment.
Thus endeth my page of narcissism.
Now go read some fic!
