Pretzel is currently attending college, and revels in the insanity that comes with it. It's only natural that she would gravitate towards a place where she can interact with people that have similar tendencies. She's been writing since she was eleven, but only started writing goodfic after a hiatus of about a year and a half, and after attending a Creative Writing Class Senior Year of High School. She tends to say "shiny" quite a bit, and will often be found with her nose in a book when she's not trawling the 'Net for goodfic or wasting time on Cake Wrecks or Cute Overload .
She completed NaNoWriMo in 2009 and 2010. She is a big fan of musicals, but especially both versions of Rocky Horror Show, and the movie version of The Producers. She tends to be sarcastic, but in a good way. She hands out Frying Pans of DOOM tm to any who want them, or to newbies, even if they don't want them.
Name: Pretzel or Christy
Nationality: Native of Mukilteo, Washington (American)
Fandoms: Oh, geez. Um, let's see... Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Discworld, Narnia, Eureka, Firefly/Serenity, Warehouse 13, CSI, CSI: NY, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Star Wars, ST:TNG, ST:Voy, Are You Being Served?, Monty Python, Nero Wolfe, Sherlock Holmes, Leverage, Lie To Me, Rocky Horror, Riese the Series, Sanctuary, Harper's Island...
The list goes on and is continually changing...
Hobbies: Writing (both fanfic and original fiction), reading, hanging out with my friends & family
Likes: the cheesy made-for-tv movies on the SyFy channel, books, the Nostalgia Critic/ Nostalgia Chick movie/tv reviews, The multiple "Minds" machinima series (save for Felix's Mind), chocolate, good books/fic, steampunk, sci-fi, dragons, preternatural fiction
Dislikes: Not much, save for retch-worthy physics in a movie, bad writing, OOCness, people who use chatspeak in their everyday speech, people who are intolerant of other peoples' views, the vocal minority who give religions and other social groups a bad name
Other: I'm a closet (no pun intended) slash fan, mainly for Stargate Atlantis, even though I don't write it myself. I tend to latch onto side characters, and often it'll be those that people aren't particularly fond of, like Doctor Kavanagh from Stargate Atlantis. I proudly claim the title of geek girl, and don't care what people think about that. I'm a fraternal twin (though people rarely believe it when they see my twin; we're both girls, but she's 5'9" and a redhead while I'm 5'2" and a brunette), have at least three "adopted" brothers, and tend to laugh at inappropriate times during movies/tv shows. I have an odd sense of humor, and am rather snarky when the mood takes me. I have been part of two ARGs (Alternate Reality Games).
