Al shal be wel, and al shal be wel, and al manner of thyng shal be wele

I am an Anglo-Saxon warrior queen who writes fan fiction in my spare time, when I'm not out battling the forces of evil or reciting Caedmon's Hymn or the opening of Beowulf to anyone who will listen. For fun, I read SF and mysteries, and I watch SF; my fanfic is Stargate (SG-1and SGA), with a little Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Primeval. My other loves include Blake's 7, Deep Space Nine, Planet of the Apes (the very shortlived series from 1974), and other things that perhaps I'll recall next time I edit my bio.

I try to spell out these abbreviations at least once in each entry, but in case I forget or you get lost:
BH=Brilliant Husband
SC=Small Child (who is now Daughter because she is no longer small and has rejected the briefly-used Progeny)
I also live with two cats who have managed to gain pseudonyms for themselves.
Sparky was a middle-aged, smallish female, not very friendly; she has gone on to her eternal reward, whatever that may be.
Doofus is a young male, large, who loves Daughter more than he loves anyone else (which is saying quite a bit). He does not like Phantom.
Phantom is a young, small female who mostly hates Doofus and mostly loves the rest of us.

Oh, and it's pronounced ELF-yee-vu--just like it's spelled.

The "al shal be wele" quotation is from Julian of Norwich's Shewings .

I used to have a website called The Mead Hall where I posted my fanfic. I let that go and spend much of my fannish life now at Archive of Our Own, where you can find me as Aelfgyfu. I have put most of my fanfic in the archive there; a few stories remain to be posted that were on The Mead Hall or have so far only been on LJ. I try now to make my bookmarks useful to others who share my interests, so feel free to check out my bookmarks collection and read my fics!
