Name:Elizabeth Culmer
Website:my AO3 page
General Info: Elizabeth Culmer is female, white, asexual, aromantic, easily distracted, prone to procrastination, addicted to reading, and currently working not-quite-full-time at an office that rents apartments to college students. (She also does taxes from January through April.) Liz has short brown hair, brown eyes, glasses, a tendency to flush heavily for no apparent reason, and an overall terribly average appearance. She has a nice smile, but people rarely manage to photograph it without making her look awkward.

Interests: Liz reads, writes, acquires houseplants, attempts amateur vegetable gardening, feeds her caffeine addiction, and, when required to, can manage a reasonable imitation of a morning person. Otherwise she reverts to her natural nocturnal habits. Beyond her involvement in her local Unitarian Universalist congregation, she has little social life, which is how she likes it.

Formerly Liz was an innocent victim of fanfiction, but is now an active writer. Her most prolific fandoms are (or have been) Harry Potter, Naruto, Chronicles of Narnia, Angel Sanctuary, and Homestuck. She dabbles in many other fandoms, though not in any consistent fashion, and reads in even more than that. [List of fandoms removed because it had gotten ridiculous.]

Liz also writes original fiction. She's been making up worlds and stories since she was 7 years old; by this point, even if she wanted to stop, she wouldn't have a clue how to turn off that part of her mind. Someday she may work up the nerve to submit her stories to magazines and publishing houses. (It would probably help if she learned to write at a reasonable speed and to craft stories with wordcounts between 1,000 and 5,000 words, instead of always running too short or too long and taking forever to finish anything. *headdesk*)

Family: Liz has a mother, a father, and a younger brother (hi Nick!), and loves them dearly. It probably helps that she lives several hours away from them. *grin* The rest of her family is a little weird, but generally composed of decent people. If she had more money and a regular schedule, she'd have a dog, but she's poor and works variable hours, so she doesn't.

Archives: In addition to her AO3 page and her page, Liz has also posted some of her Harry Potter fics on FictionAlley, which is a large fandom-specific archive. If you're interested in archiving any of her stories, she'll almost certainly say yes -- but please ask first. Until and unless she gets her own website (or gets around to fixing the internal links on her imported journal entries), you can find all her stories, both original and fanfiction, via her master fiction directory post, which has summaries, warnings, and a hopefully useful organization.

Transformative Works Policy: You have blanket permission to remix, podfic, illustrate, or otherwise play around with any of Liz's works, so long as you include a link to (or at least a mention of) her work when you post your own. Please also drop a line if you do, so Liz can come squee in your general direction and also publicize your work... insofar as a post on her own journal counts as publicity. *wry*

Journal Stuff: 1) Liz treats her circle mostly as a reading list. If you subscribe to her, she probably won't subscribe back. That is not a judgment on you. She just has limited time. 2) Liz does not give access to anyone. Again, this is not a judgment on you! She just doesn't lock entries, unless she locks them to her eyes only, so a lack of access doesn't make any practical difference. 3) Liz tries to answer all comments and reviews, but she has an irregular work and sleep schedule and limited internet access at work, so you may not get a response for a while. Any conversation past the first reply is based on Liz's amount of sleep and ability to deal with social interaction, which are not always as high as she'd like.

Liz doesn't bite and she has yet to get involved in any real fandom kerfuffling, mostly because it would take too much effort. She's just here for the stories. Well, the stories and the world-building, and occasional bits of intelligent analysis and meta... but mostly the stories. :D

Liz maintains a mirror of this journal at, but has started redirecting all comments over here. She also maintains a Tumblr account at Its fanfiction content mirrors this journal on a slight lag; otherwise it exists mostly for image posts and reblogs of other people's stuff.
