Who am I and why am I here...
My nickname online is Kemical Reaxion. I started watching "Daria" off and on during the first season but didn't start watching it religiously until sometime during the second season. Shortly after the end of season three I discovered fan fiction, and my life was never the same. I joined the Daria online community when I started getting the itch to write my own fan fiction, starting out on the Outpost Daria Message Board. When that board closed, I migrated over to the Paperpusher's Message Board, where I can still be found to this day, making pithy remarks and killing time while I'm supposed to be working.
No end in site...
I started Glitter Berries in late 1999 or early 2000. The name was chosen from a self-compiled list of quirky phrases from "Daria" episodes (Can you believe I almost named this site "Flavendar 5"?) It started out small, hosting a handful of stories and artwork, and featured character descriptions and a still-incomplete collection of episode summaries. Eventually, the site grew beyond the bounds of its free hosting space. I moved it around several times before finding its permanent home. It's gone through many incarnations over the years and has seen the addition of quotes, polls, contests, and much more. The site is constantly growing and evolving and as always I owe a huge thanks to my fellow fans for keeping it alive.
I'm ready for my close-up...
And now, for anyone who gives a crap what I look like, here are a few pictures of me. Here I am standing
by the "Jane Lane" street sign in my hometown. Here's a more recent picture
of me, all dressed up. And finally, for a rather drastic transformation, a picture of me in my wicked Halloween costume
from a few years back. Scary, huh?
