I learned how to read when I was an itty-bitty thing, and I've been hooked ever since. After discovering the magnificent Miss Austen when I was twelve, I devoured all of her books (except Northanger Abbey) within three months ó and got hooked on them, too. I spent the following two years, blissfully rereading Emma and Pride and Prejudice, occasionally throwing Persuasion at my brother's head until he read it, and every once in a while discussing Sense and Sensibility with my sister.

Then I discovered fanfiction.

It was love at first sight.

I still haven't escaped. [View full bio]

First encounter with JA was the 1995 BBC adaptation of "Persuasion", followed swiftly by the novels of the same story and "Pride and Prejudice".

Have a few ideas for potential stories to post here, but am forcing myself to not put pen to paper till I have discharged at least some of my other fan fiction commitments (see blog for details).

Hello! I have been a fan of Jane Austen since high school, when I set aside my fantasy/sci-fi books on a quest to read the classics. Unfortunately, I never made it to the bottom of that list because I got addicted to Jane.

Fiction inspired by Jane Austen has become sort of a guilty pleasure of mine, and now I seem to find myself even writing it! Hopefully I will be able to admirably contribute to this community that I've long admired (from afar).

Well, when I started looking up stories on DWG, I was SUPPOSED to be doing my M.Phil thesis for 2 years. Now that phase is over (with a fat work on Shakespearean Adaptations to show for my, ahem, troubles) and, by a fluke of great good luck (or not - time will ultimately tell), I have landed a job as a Government college lecturer who will attempt to drill the English language into unwilling brains for years to come.

I have always loved Jane Austen's works, but my world changed the day I discovered the varied and never-ending world of Austen fan fiction. The instigator was fanfiction.net, but the standards are definitely higher on DWG. I can't quite believe myself, but in the past one year I have literally devoured hundreds of stories without reaching the threshold of satiety. My sole sorrow... [View full bio]

I used to be Anita on DWG, but that name was utilized later by another Dwiggie. Decided Anita N would be the best solution, and changed the name of my one remaining story.

Nearly 50 now. Married, no children, two cats, work as a minion for educational system. Rather bland, but tend to follow around and befriend sparkling or startling people who live life as I wish I did: grad studdents, performers, historians, costumers, recreationists and post-hippie hippies.

My co-workers might say I live amongst fruits, nuts and flakes, but I'm very happy amongst the granola.

First encountered Jane when I was 12. Read P&P, dismissed it as standard bland romance after the first page. 12 year olds do not understand satire, or think it was only invented in the 20th century.

I got it later.... [View full bio]

Started writing for my own enjoyment, my family thought me mad (and still do), but fortunately the kind folk here think this is normal, so I am in the process of writing some follow ups.

Find the reading and writing a great mental break from studies, and a great place to make new friends. [View full bio]

Actually been reading DWG posts for yeeeears. I actually used to prefer BOI, but I like how outside of the box the creativity is here. I don't think I could ever write a JA fanfic, and I've never been able to read one of the novels I can buy in the store that "officially" continue the story--but I love the fanfic. I love Jane though, I love literature for the most part--but she is in my category of favorites that I never could abandon. Not a great intro...maybe I'll make it better later :)

I am a teacher and researcher who is mainly interested in social inequality in education, multilingual and anti-racist education. I am married and have a daughter (11).

Education was a practical career choice which I do not regret. But when I was younger, I studied German literature and literary criticism. And the glow of first (academic) love has never quite faded.

I came across Jane Austen quite by chance. Her books were not taught in the German secondary school. And I do not blame our English teachers; our English was really not up to it. My first encounter with P & P was the 1940 movie. I liked it and proceeded to read the book. You might imagine my surprise(s)...

First I read the German translation, by the way, which I did not like so much. It is difficult to do Austen's style... [View full bio]

I have always loved Jane Austen books and have been meaning to read alternates or sequels for years. I finally started last November (2010) and have been addicted ever since. Believe it or not, I have read over 110 fan fic novels in the last year (and all were based on P&P)! Now I have run out of books, so have been lucky enough to find the JAFF websites and have started reading online. I am amazed at the quality of some of the work I am finding - some is much better than the published works I have read.

I've been an addicted P&P fan ever since my teenage years some 30+ years ago. My greatest pleasure was to be able to read it in the original as soon as my study of the English language had endowed me with the necessary linguistic skills. I was equally enraptured to discover Jane Austen's other novels, which I've read all and repeatedly over the course of time. "Emma", "Persuasion" and "Northanger Abbey" are my second favourites, at a par.

It might be quite unusual to denote NA 2007 as the favourite adaptation, but it IS the one where I like absolutely everything. Of course I love P&P 1995 and P&P 2005, very much so, but in both I find some things to criticize, and therefore I must pick NA to be the perfect adaptation. But I also do love "Emma 2009", as well as the adaptation with G.Paltrow... [View full bio]

I've been interested in Jane Austen ever since I took a course on her novels in University and watched the 1995 version of "P&P" the same year (this was in 2006, by the way---I dimly new about the 1995 miniseries when it was new, but at 10 years of age it just didn't pique my interest).

Since then, I've joined my local Jane Austen Society, produced several newsletters for them, and am now taking on the Vice-President role of the society as well. I'd like to try my hand at writing some fanfic here at some point. I've never made a serious attempt at writing fan fiction before, but it sounds like a lot of fun! :)

Favorite JA adaptation:P&P1 (1980)

P&P1 (1980) was my introduction to P&P and to Jane Austen. We'd had a copy of Persuasion in the house, but because I mistakenly believed it to have a modern setting, I had never read it. A friend gave me a copy of the complete works of Jane Austen in paperback, including Lady Susan, which was at the back. I read all of the books. I didn't care much for Lady Susan; so when it began to fall out of the volume I helped its exit along. Now it has come apart, and is more or less separated into the 6 separate works that are left. I did not come to like S&S until Emma Thompson brought it to screen both as actress and as screenwriter in 1995. I have never watched P&P2 (1995) all the way through; it's all wrong for Charlotte to be prettier than Jane and I just generally can't stomach it.

I'm 23, currently a Graphic Designer, used to be a Museum guide and my dream is to study a Master in Art History. Someday, perhaps.

Pride and Prejudice was the first "real" English book I read in my life, when I was sixteen. I understood half the words that were there, but it didn't stop me from finishing it in a couple of days. Ever since, Jane Austen works have accompanied me for several years, being always a source of entertainment, wisdom and fun. I've been lurking in the DWG for a couple of years, so that I can practice my English in an amusing way. Perhaps I shall, someday, post something of my invention for I got many ideas in my head.

Persuasion is my favorite book. So beautiful and yet, so sad.

If I ever made the time to do it, I would love to earn a PhD focusing on Jane Austen; but that would mean less reading of FanFic and more reading of academia, so the temptation is not strong!

I actually teach Math to adolescents and love escaping into Regency England through the creativity of my fellow Janeites.

I write non-fiction professionally on a part-time basis. I'm a full time Mom and military wife. I have precious little time to write articles, let alone fan fiction stories. Having a toddler, a fifth grader, and a husband keeps my plate pretty full. Regardless, I know it is difficult to write a full novel length story. I know ďreal lifeĒ as it is termed in the fan fiction world slows or stalls many writers. I am indebted to those who have published their finished works online, and hope others will find them as distracting and comforting as I do. What began as notes on my favorite stories and a ridiculously long and hodge-podge list of bookmarks in my browser is now a blog, Jane Austen Fan Fiction Reviews. Although not a story, I hope I can encourage other readers to read more JAFF.

I found Jane Austen in an odd way. You know how there's this Pride and Prejudice board game? Well, my aunt bought it and was playing it with my mom. I wanted to play, but being only 9 or so I hadn't read the book or even seen the movie. So I got an illustrated classic version and have loved Jane Austen ever since.
More about me, I am a high school student and an aspiring writer. I have this wacky imagination that is always working. I still "play pretend" with myself and my sisters think I am weird. (Who can help imaging what Emma's child would be like or who the remaining Bennet sisters married? ;) )

OH HAI! I'm Erin, an emotional, serious, and of course very mature, teenager. Hehe. One of my friends forced me to watch the 2005 Pride and Prejudice a few years ago, and I've been hooked ever since. I haven't read all of her novels yet, but I love reading FF. Especially when I'm supposed to be doing homework!

Um I can be very sarcastic, I have a pretty good sense of humor, I'm very loyal, and I have a quick temper. I never get mad though, just annoyed. Reading is one of my few hobbies, along with reading and writing poetry, listening to music with meaningful lyrics, and watching mushy movies that the rest of my family hate! English is of course my favourite subject.

I've been visiting Austen.com for about a year now; I'm not very skilled as a lurker.

I work in a homeschool consignment store where P&P is a very popular title. I had never read it, and my collegues were shocked. My boss loaned me 1995 and 2005 versions of P&P with the instruction to watch the 1995 version first.

One evening, I did not have five hours, so I chose the 2005 version... Probably watched it fourteen times in rapid succession. Then watched the 1995 version...then Emma, and Mansfield Park (Jonny Lee Miller), then branched out to all the other Austen movies, multiple versions of Jane Eyre, then fell in love with North & South.

Discovered published fan fiction and read a ton of that, and then, oh glory, online fan fiction! Read so many stories I thought I would start a blog reviewing them!

Although I realize the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film has numerous flaws in its script and direction, it was that film's visually stunning cinematography and Dario Marianelli's gorgeous score which inspired me to fall in love with Jane Austen all over again.

I don't easily fit into any category in particular. I'm old enough to have three teen-aged boys but have been mistaken for my eldest's's girlfriend. He didn't like that too much.

As an udergrad I majored in a little of everything and graduated--in four years--with a quadruple major. Yeah, really. Then I proceeded to take on grad work in totally different areas. After my PhD, I spent 16 years as a college professor in education and counseling. Currently I am an education pastor in a small church doing what I've always wanted to do. Go figure.

My other artsy pursuits include photography, cooking, and scrap booking.

I'm a full time mum with two kids and a secret writing addiction. (well, not secret to you, but it is to some)

I never knew there was such a thing as fan fiction until I watched P&P3 at the cinema in September 2005. That night I was thinking about a certain scene in the film and had a dream where the story went in a totally different direction. I found it so interesting, that I went to sleep the following night trying to extend the 'story' I was creating. It didn't occur to me then to write it down. (who writes down dreams?) However, the dream wouldn't leave me alone and I was therefore very relieved to stumble upon the DWG and realise that writing it out wasn't such a stupid idea after all, and that other people might even want to read it.

I've been an obsessive reader since I learnt how, and I've written (crap like now) since I learnt how, too. The character in all literature with whom I identify myself the most is Don Quixote de la Mancha.

I taught myself English when I was 17 to be able to read my favourite authors at the time (Bradbury, Tolkien, Ursula K. Le Guin, etc.) in their original language, and pretty much fell in love with the language.

I found Jane Austen again a couple of years ago (through fandom, though not JAF), re-read her books and fell madly in love with them. The... [View full bio]

Itís hard to believe that that a middle-aged male Louisiana native now living in Wisconsin is a JA fanfiction writer. Whatís harder to believe is how badly I spell. Oh, well, thank goodness for my team of betas, lovingly referred to as the Beta Babes.

I love historical fiction, which is probably why I like the characters from JA. They provide such a nice canvas to use. My wife, bless her, supports me whole-heartily in this venture. As for my three grown sons, thatís another matter.

Beside spending hours writing every night, I enjoy travel, cooking (I am a Cajun, after all), reading, and golf.

I have a Bachelor degree in Early Childhood Education and accompany/teach young children between 3 and 6/7 years with and without special needs in their thirst for understanding the world, themselves and everything.

Although I had read most of Austen's books early in my adulthood, and I owned and loved Kira Knightly's Pride and Prejudice movie, it wasn't until my sister wrote a JAFF book, and sent me what she had written, that I found I had an unsatiable hunger and thirst for JAFF. After reading 50 books in 4 months, the charcters were alive in my head and heart, and knew that when full conversations with fictional characters were going on in my head that something had to be done. So I asked my sister what to do. She told me to start with a plot outline and six months later I had written 2 full length JAFF books: Mr. Darcy's Promise and Pride and Persistence. I am working on getting them published but you can track the progress on my website: www.heyladypublications.com

I have a mild Jane Austen addiction. (Similar to pretty much everyone else on this site, right?) P&P was my favorite and the first of her stories that I read when I was about 16 or 17 and have been hooked ever since. I do love other genres...but I read P&P at least once a year, and try to do at least one other JA novel each year too.

[Side note: I was disappointed when in Sr. year of high school our Eng./Lit. teacher switched the Austen selection from P&P to Emma because she had read it every year for the past 7 years and needed a switch so she didn't delve too deep in discussions (and wonder why her students couldn't see what she did). So, I would sometimes have lunch in her classroom (conveniently her free hour) and we would talk P&P and eat our PB&J.]

Hi! I am a music teacher living in Crown Point, Indiana. I have been an Austen fan for years. My younger sister Melody, passed on suddenly in Sept. of 2009. Melody loved the Austen stories. As a kind of therapy, I started reading lots of fan fiction in 2010. I had a great relationship with my sister and wished that the Gerogiana character in P&P had someone like my sister. This year as a tribute to Melody, I started writing my own Fan Fiction. Georgiana and Lizzy meet through a fund raising (musical) connection promoted by their aunts, Lady Matlock and Mrs. Gardner. My sister was a very generous and giving person and I have incorporated that aspect of her into my Lizzy's character.

I am a geek. This is the first, last, and most important thing about me. It pretty much explains all the rest. The second and penulimate item of interest is I am owned by four cats (one is my particular owner) and one dog. All the other items I could say fall in between those, and really aren't that much of interest, but since you will ask...

I play WoW, write random nothings -- poetry, JAFF, HP FF, my own odd, bizarre little ramblings that aspire to grow up into novels at some point in their lives -- cook, kill my garden, and avoid trying to fix everyone else's computer and/or website.

I am also known as Sidial on other JA sites, and on LiveJournal. Sidial is also my main WoW toon, on the Skywall realm. [View full bio]

Tell you about me - that assumes there is something worth knowing.
I was born in California; my father is from there and my mother is from Puerto Rico. I studied in Seattle, Mexico, Italy (kindergarten counts as studying, right?) and Greece, and the last one is where I live. I earn my daily bread by contributing to worldwide confusion (translating and interpreting - I'm a proud polyglot and wish in fact that I could post in other languages). I've liked writing stories since I was about 11 years old, and coincidentally happened to discover this site, started reading stories, and then writing them. I live with my wife Eva and a white rabbit named Francesco.
In real life I dislike all forms of aristocracy and oligarchy, which is probably why I like making fun of them in my stories and comments... [View full bio]

In high school, I was in the one class that actually didn't read Pride & Prejudice as one of the class readings, and as such didn't read it until I was in college and on my own time. After that, I could have kicked my British Lit teacher for not having us read the book. It's now one of my favorite books, and I've slowly begun to make my way through the rest of Austen's books.

I am a sophomore in college and have become obsessed with everything Jane Austen since the summer of 2006 when I first saw Pride and Prejudice (2005). My love for Austen only increased as I watched/read anything Jane Austen I could get my hands on.

I am an artist Ė I work part-time as an adjunct art professor at a private liberal arts college, and fill in occasional freelance graphic design jobs on the side, when I have free time. Free time, haha. I'm married to my college sweetheart, Ryan and we have a little daughter born on Valentine's Day, 2012. We live in a tiny house we bought and fixed up, with our two standard poodles Lewis and Duncan. Besides drawing and painting, I also love all kinds of creative and artsy pursuits like knitting, baking, photography, and calligraphy. I'm addicted to reading, but that probably goes without saying here.

I started reading Jane Austen when I was 11, and discovered fanfiction when I was in late high school or college. I started to write stories myself because all my friends do and it looked like... [View full bio]

To describe myself, I am very much Elizabeth Bennet. I love the outdoors, play the piano very ill, sing tolerably, enjoy reading, love observing people, and have a passionate, independant, and stubborn personality. I am in my 20's and currently looking for my Mr. Darcy. ;)

I love all things Jane Austen. I've read all her novels (Pride and Prejudice several times over) and have seen many of the dramatized adaptions of her novels. I have not written any fanfic myself as of yet. I hope to someday, but in the meantime I enjoy reading the many fanfic stories posted here.

I found Jane Austen through the 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and I fell in love. So I did what any sensible girl would do and picked up a copy of Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's classic novel and I was hooked. I then read all of her novels and anything else related to Jane Austen that I could get my hands on.

There is just something about Jane. :)

I've been an Austen Addict every since I can remember. The fault of that rests solely with my mother, who happened to interest me in Miss Austen's books when I was in middle school, and my obsession has lasted ever since. I'm still quite young, perhaps just of age to be considered out, and have been writing ever since I could string words together on a page.

I enjoy designing web pages, blogging, reading, and drop sarcastic comments as gracefully as young dťbutantes drop curtsies (though, unfortunately, perhaps without so much tact). I love any well told story and hope to someday get a book of mine published. Until then, let's just see if I can get something up on DWG first... [View full bio]

Hei kaikille! (finnish language meaning hello everyone!) :-)

I was very pleased to find this site. I am a dedicated fanfiction writer now writing my first based on Pride and Prejudice. Yes, another story of Lizzy and Will..but hopefully with new, fresh ideas combined with romance and humour. I was, like I guess many other here as well, introduced to Jane Austen in school, and being interested in both books and reading I soon grew very close to her books and characters. Also seeing Mr. Colin Firth as Mr Darcy had something to do with the thought of writing something myself :-) But yes, I've written a lot of fanfiction of other characters, fictional and real, but now I am working on my first one. I've already read a few here and I am very impressed and delighted to see how many skilled writers... [View full bio]

I live in a very sunny (but sometimes very foggy) little town in Sicily, but my (not so secret) dream is to go working in the UK -possibly London-, although I don't know if I would be able to stand such an abundance of rain...

I first found out about Jane Austen when P&P3 was released. While surfing the net for information, I read that the movie was inspired by the homonymous novel. I switched off my PC and almost ran to the library. By the end of the day, I had finished the book and, obviously, fallen in love with it.

The following year, I completed my JA education. My English teacher came up with the brilliant idea of reading "Emma" in class (much to my class mates' chagrin!). I think I need not say I enjoyed it very, very much. Meanwhile, I read the other 4 books, loved "Persuasion... [View full bio]

I do not write fanfiction myself, but I have great pleasure in seeing the performances of other people! But if I had even a smidge of creative ability, I would arrange for the following JA characters to meet the Doctor: Sir Walter Elliot (who better to take him down a peg? Or possibly feed him to a Weeping Angel?), Miss Bates (because she deserves to have some fun), and Mary Bennet (who might actually be interesting if she expanded her horizons a bit).

I have loved Jane Austen all my life, and I am very blessed that my hubby and kids also share my enthusiasm for all things Austen.

My first attempt at writing fan-fiction was "A Daunting Task" - late night musings posted directly on the DWG Message Board without much editing - so I must beg my readers to overlook all the spelling & grammatical errors found in the story.

I finally finished "Another Daunting Task" - after a span of several years. Thank you to Julie L for being my beta from Chp7 to 35, and to my faithful readers for all the helpful comments and support!

I spent a couple decades in the US, and then I was ready for a change and I left. I have been wandering around Europe ever since. At present I live in London and work as a software developer.

Since I am the person with the first entry on the Baronetage (one advantage of writing all the code), I can claim Mr Darcy for myself! We will be married and live happily ever after at Pemberley, and the rest of you will be wildly jealous of us.

I'm a university student (English/History) and I am really bad at writing self-introductionary texts.

I enjoy sitting on my private beach drinking a glass of cold milk and watching old movies and my favourite television series in my private cinema where one of my servants serves caramelised popcorn. Afterwards I retire to my library and browse my extensive collection before I dictate my newest chapter to one of my secretaries. In the evenings, Mr Knightley and I often take strolls around our park before we have a home-cooked dinner and brownies with custard for dessert.

Sometimes I'm also awake and then I write in between lectures or on derelict trains. Now and then, I even have a real life. Whatever that may be worth. [View full bio]

Watching P&P2 in my little London flat week-by-week in 1995 is what turned me on to Jane Austen, and I am forever grateful that I DID like "the classics" after all. (Wuthering Heights and several other non-Jane Eyre Bronte novels had turned me off as a teenager to all lit labeled "classic".)

I've had the privilege of meeting Amy I, Crysty, Mary S, JulieLynn, and a few others that hang out here in RL, but my best Dwiggie experience was hosting Shem for a few days over Thanksgiving a few years ago.

I first found Jane Austen by picking up a copy of Pride and Prejudice in the library when I was in high school. I had always loved to read and had heard about the book so decided to give it a try. I literally read the entire book in two days. From that point I was hooked. I found every Jane Austen book I could and read them all. Then looked for as many movie adaptions I could find. I managed to drag my family along with me and they all now love Austen's world as much as I do. I've even managed to get my father to read some fanfiction too.

I'm not a writer so I happily read all the wonderful stories crafted by the very talented writers who inhabit this board. Thank you to all of you for sharing and I hope to continue reading more so keep up the good work.

Iím an old (like quite a few Dwiggies) man (like few). I have read voraciously since I was a small child, everything from the labels on the scouring-powder cans in the bathroom to encyclopedias. I love Jane; I also like (for the same era) Georgette Heyer. Being a husband, father and grandfather is probably the most important and rewarding thing Iíve ever done. Reading is fun; writing is almost more fun. (No, itís not, but itís fun too!) [View full bio]

I have been a fan of Austen's novels for years and have been haunting this website since high school. In fact, it is what my old homeroom teacher remembers most about me: during homeroom I would sit at her computer and just read and read and read. I first began reading Austen when I was twelve, when a friend recommended Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility to me. I devoured them both and became instantly addicted to all things Austen.

I taught English overseas for five years, before returning to the US. I still plan to educate for a living, though right now I work as a paraeducator.

I was born in North Carolina, raised in West Virginia, and currently live in Kansas with my fiance and his mother.

I like kimchi, movies, music, MST3K, opera, children's books, and cross-stitching... [View full bio]

Mostly a lurker, occasionally resurface to make a comment. Research scientist by trade; amateur musician, history fan and JA addict by hobby.

I'm happy to take on beta work, though my Regency knowledge isn't great and I'm not much good at plot suggestions. Strengths lie in correcting English grammar/punctuation/spelling, spotting continuity errors, and general stylistic suggestions. I'm also a native British English speaker, which may be useful for any ESL writers who prefer it to American.

Favourite adaptations: E4, S&S3, P2, P&P2, NA2. How I wish Andrew Davies or someone would make good adaptations of MP and Persuasion!

I never got round to reading Persuasion till five years ago and now it's one of my annual reads but my favourite film Austen has to be Emma Thompson's S&S - the perfect, sublime film!

Hi, my name is Pat and I am a huge P&P fan fiction fan, when it's written properly. I fell in love with Matthew Macfadyen's Mr. Darcy and since then I have read many sequels to P&P, some good, some not so good. The best ones that I have read, in my opinion, are Pamela Aidan's Trilogy. I think she really helped me fall in love with Darcy's character, since she goes into his mind. Before reading that, I was not really a Darcy fan. Now he is one of my favorite literary characters of all time.

I am a stay at home busy Mom with two daughters that keep me running around with school and extra curricular activities. I am married. I also have three sisters.

I absolutely love Matthew Macfadyen, David Oakes and Diego Forlan. Three very special men, all brilliant in their fields, but also wonderful... [View full bio]

Love reading. My first exposure to Pride and Prejudice was when I was about ten years old and since than I read it close to 25 times. I still find the novel very addictive.
I am a researcher and though I have been reading fanfiction, I have only recently joined the world of writing fanfiction.
I love the character Elizabeth and the portrayal by Jennifer Ehle. As for Darcy, who else than the ever pragmatic Colin Firth?

I first met JA through the P&P3 adaptation. The first thing I did was buy the piano sheet music from that movie - and then I started reading the JA novels, watching the other adaptations and so on. And quite in character, it was the music and not JA that brought me here.

I was looking for the text and sheet music of "An Unexpected Song", which a friend of mine had sung at an other friends wedding. But the first google result was Rika's modern P&P fanfiction "An Unexpected Song" - and I started reading and never stopped. From Rika's site it was only a short step to the jaffindex and then to DWG.

Hmm, perhaps I should start with when I first "met" Jane Austen. Technically, this was when I was a year old. My mom bought the 1995 P&P the year it came out, which happens to be a year after I was born. I grew up humming the songs to the movie, and the fact that it was constantly on caused me to hate everything P&P (gasp!). I first read P&P when I was nine and fell in love with it. When P&P3 came out on DVD, I spent the entire night watching P&P3 and P&P2, needless to say, I did not sleep much that night.

Ever since I have been in love with all things Austen. I am a bookworm, love to write (I'm still working on that one though), and love to be creative in general. [View full bio]

"She who must be obeyed..." sorry, Rumpole, but that best suit a mother, was forced to teach me how to read and write, because the schools were of little use and consequential only as to costs. Still, I had to go to school, and did not get any fit required reading until university. I would rather be whipped than go read.

After university, I found that I go on reading binges. I read the Babylon 5 books, then the Miss Marple, and recently P&P after I watched the local library's copy of P&P2 c.October 2010. Since then, I have read some riveting reads in JAFF; certainly much better than another popular series' FF.

Always appreciated the second chance Anne Eliot and Captain Wentworth have in Persuasion.

Experienced goosebumps when first reading the portion in Pride and Prejudice when Lizzy sees Darcy on the grounds at Pemberley....needed to voraciously finish the book with no breaks after that point to see how it ended.

After getting Pride and Prejudice recommended by my heterosexual and male English teacher, It soon became clear that I was in the proces of becoming thoroughly corrupted by Miss Austen's writing. My fanfiction addiction had been established some years earlier; fairly soon following my descent into the world of anime. It is no wonder, indeed nothing could be more natural, that I should combine the two. Which brings me to the inevitable (and predictable) conclusion of my story: my joining the DWG.

Now, should there be any questions after this riveting, but vague account, feel free to message me.

I discovered Jane Austen at age 12, and have been obsessed ever since. I love all the adaptations (I own all of them...and I MEAN all of them), and watch them very often. Everything can be cured by Jane Austen in my life :)

Reading is my greatest passion in life, I can never be without a book at hand (and usually have more than one on the go at once). My other passion is playing the piano. If you took everything from my life but left me with a book and my piano, I would still survive.

Hi! I am Christian, home-schooling, SAHM with three kids (soon to be four), and I am a Jane-a-holic.

I suppose I can now describe myself as a professional writer as I am now making close to a living wage from original work! I would generally otherwise describe as a homemaker who writes and paints.

This has been an exciting year for me, with my first original Regency being published, and I am also breaking into the cover art market. [Anyone who is interested can find some of my artwork on Pinterest at: http://www.pinterest.com/sarahjwaldock/]

I am intolerant of grossly careless anachronisms in stories, which is more likely to make me refuse to read something than dodgy spelling and grammar.

I was a writer until about the 5th grade when I seem to have stopped. I have been an avid reader since 3rd grade. By the end of the summer after 3rd grade, I had graduated to the adult section of the local library, having read all of the books in the children's section. I always used the books I read in my games, so I have always created fan fiction adaptations, just didn't know that's what they were. When searching for a new house, the first requirement is always enough space for the books. I have had a varied career and although most of it followed a high tech pathway,I had detours teaching both music and dance. Whatever I have done, I have tried to make the world a better place, and have found great satisfaction in teaching, both in the arts and in technology. [View full bio]

I am (or was) a reluctant convert. My mothers friend gave me P&P for christmas when I was 10 and I couldn't stand reading it! I was very much a si-fy person and didn't have time for anything that didn't involve dragons or fairies. But when I was 12 I went to a church camp and met my very first dwiggie! She had me hooked in two days, it took 1 regency hairstyle (lots and LOTS of bobby pins!), a long discussion on Mr. Darcy and I was hooked! I now enjoy watching Collin Firth as often as I can, in most cases I am either accompanied by my Father (the movie makes him laugh) or my brothers (who deny the fact that they like it). I attempted one story a couple years ago, and hope to eventually find the time to go back, brush it up and finish!

I have loved JA since I was a kid, thanks to Mom. She bought all the old BBC adaptations and I vividly remember pretending not to like P&P as I watched Mr. Collins prance about at the Netherfield Ball. But it wasn't long before I was popping the VHS tapes in on my own, and just a little longer before I was reading from the massive 'Collected Works of Jane Austen'. My reading interests are varied, but JA will always hold a special place in my heart. I'm not sure what it was that prompted the full-fledged obsession, but here I am. [View full bio]

In my fifth decade, I was introduced to Jane Austen by, oddly enough, the Keira Knightley version of Pride and Prejudice; since then Austenís works have consumed much of my free time. Reading one of the companion series to Pride and Prejudice, I was sufficiently unsatisfied to attempt my own. Now in my sixth decade, my interest remains undiminished.

When not reading JA or writing, I teach fencing and karate, and polish samurai swords. I have a Ph.D. in neurochemistry, a couple of Bachelor degrees, and an abiding love of literature.

My first Jane Austen experience resulted from the Wishbone P&P adaptation. It intrigued enough to have me reading the book. In fact, I read it in a single snow day. My English teacher that year introduced me to THE Darcy adaptation and we giggled over the cuteness of Colin Firth quite a bit over those first few months.

The questions up above are so very hard. Of course, I love P&P, but I think I've felt so sad at the neglect of the others that they've climbed in my favor. Anne Elliot is one of the most beautiful people ever written. Jimmy's "Gentleman from Glouchester" never let me see NA in the same way and is responsible for that #2 ranking up there.

I'm a Christian, a wife, and the mother of three young children. I've always liked to write but have always had a hard time coming up with original ideas. Then I discovered JAFF, and now I can't seem to stop writing. Fan fiction allows me to engage in two of my favorite past times simultaneously--analyzing existing literature, and creating my own.

I'm a novelist, traveler, wannabe chef, sustainability champion, and Jane Austen fanatic. In real life I work at a university. I have a husband and two cats and a beautiful ocean view from my condo on Vancouver Island, in Canada.

In April 2009 (age 49) I had never read Jane Austen, so I decided to read an old worn Northanger Abbey that was somehow in my library. I was hooked. Within a few weeks I had read them all, and P&P twice, and was reading every P&P inspired book in the local library plus bought P&P&Z. I started searching for more and in July 2009, found JAFF and DWG. I started writing in November 2009, and submitted my first short story about a year after I first read P&P.

I have two stories here at DWG, my very first ones, and hope to post my next one here, too. It's called "Letter... [View full bio]

I rediscovered Austen's genius after seeing P&P3 on Christmas Eve 2005. Questions from my family arose about some details of the story and, since I hadn't read the book in a while, I began searching Online for answers. Not long after, I also happened upon Pamela Aiden's trilogy. In her author's notes, she makes mention of the DWG. Intrigued, I checked it out and the rest, as they say, is history.

I've been married to a wonderful husband for what seems like forever (in a good way) and have a very talented daughter, who also enjoys Austen's works. I've participated at a few other non-Austen fanfiction sites, but have found none to equal the DWG. [View full bio]

It has been ages since I joined DWG, I was probably thirteen when I first started lurking and fourteen when I started posting my stories.

I have fallen off the radar screen of DWG since joining the real world in 2003 - i.e. when I began university. I have since abandoned that endeavour, completed an administrative assistant program and began work for the same university in their Development Office. Ironically, once I started working there and discovered the tuition program available to employees I have slowly started to finish the aforementioned (and now no-longer abandoned) degree. According to my calculations, at the current snail's pace I'm going, I should be graduating in 2018 - just a few years behind schedule!

In Spring 2011, my better half and I bought a house in a small little... [View full bio]

When I first discovered DWG, we still had dial-up at my house! Many hours of enjoyment have been logged since then. I love reading all kinds of stories, but can only manage writing "serious" ones myself. [View full bio]

Most of my childhood I have lived overseas. Now, due to family health issues and the proximity to my college of choice, I live in WV and go to college full time now, majoring in Biology Pre-Med. I was homeschooled, and have several siblings, including a brother-in-law that was added to the fold 2 years ago. I love kids, and want to become a pediatrician or an OB/GYN,and a wife and mother. I have strong opinions about a lot of things, but don't air them most of the time, out of consideration for my fellow humans. One of my nicknames is "The Grim Reaper", and occasionally I live up to that in the humor department. I lurk most of the time, but try to leave a review when I really like the story, or when the story has said something that confuses me.
Beware! I am grim, and my name means reaper... [View full bio]

I'm also known as mamatree at other JAFF sites. Never posted a JAFF at DWG, but I have a short one posted elsewhere. If you are curious and over 18 y.o. send me an email for more info!

BTW - the small case "t" was a typo that I decided to leave as is on purpose to be more recognizable and different. My real name is actually Theresa Jean but I'm rather lazy to type it. ;-)

I like to be "helpful" (especially when folks are looking for a story) but as I'm a "senior citizen" my memory is not so good these days so I prefer to read completed stories and "wait IMpatiently" for WIPs to be completed!

Oh I should mention that my VDH of 33 years (Wedding date: 5-6-78) is "my very own Mr. Darcy" LOL I have an adult son and daughter who as yet are still "not cooperating" to let me become a gramma... [View full bio]

I was first introduced to Jane Austen when my older sister was doing a Pride and Prejudice project for an English class when I was 9 years old. Now many years later I am an fanatic!
I first found DWG after becoming a member of the Republic of Pemberley. I've been lurking around for a while, thoroughly enjoying all the talented writers here.
This is the place I go when I need cheering up; being in the presence of others who appreciate Jane as much as I do always makes me smile. :) [View full bio]

I'm a teacher of history and English (and a couple of minor subjects) in secondary school.

In college I became acquainted with JA; unfortunately I decided to start my JA experience with MP, which put me off for a while. MP is not a good place to start on JA, I've found. After having seen the 1995 P&P adaptation I decided to give JA another chance, and fell in love.

I started writing JA fanfic in summer 2000, when I didn't have much else to do. It began as a kind of therapy and escapism, and has become my main hobby in the meantime. My other hobbies include reading, and music.

My main haunt at DWG is the ANI board, where I post my original, non-JA based stories. Though I do write the occasional fanfic piece just for the fun of it. [View full bio]

My Austen-related career:
- Read P&P for the first time in 1971 (thus dating myself!), the other five soon afterwards, and saw the late 60s "lost" P&P version on TV.
- Lurked at DWG & BoI since 1999 and at other sites as they appeared.
- Started writing my own Austen fanfic stories in 2004, and posted the teen-suited ones at DWG in 2007.
- After compiling the lists that preceded it for a few years, learned web design and MySQL (I'm a retired database programmer/analyst) and put the JAFF Index online in 2006.

And although I note P&P2 as my favourite adaptation, I also like P&P3 very much, and the Bollywood B&P. [View full bio]

I'm the mom of triplets born in 2000, each have mild autism and severe allergies and other stuff going on, and it seems like I'm constantly having to fight with the school or someone is sick - so this site is my escape from all that!

I've been reading and re-reading JA's works for years. I became interested in FF recently and cannot seem to get enough of JA FF.

I am truly enjoying all your works. Thanks to all the authors here and to the people who run this site!
