2. About the author
My user name comes from a bastardisation of my actual name. My nephew could not say my name and Rous is what came of it. Since my mother and I shared the same name, it was just easier to go with the nickname. No, it did not come from "The Princess Bride".
I have been writing fanfic for exactly two years. Christmas Day this year marks Butterfly's second birthday. I have written other fiction, but not much until I discovered the internet and all the wonderful writings out there. I started posting here because of the supposed prestige of the site. I also sought out another highly recommended site, only to be turned down enough to give up. Most of my things are posted at archives that do not rely on arbitrary judgements or fickle readers. I would rather post to sites that allow for growth, and site managers that are fair and willing to give new writers a second chance.
So, all of my poetry and fanfic is available on sites that do not restrict a reader. I feel this is the fairest way to encourage writers. If it is bad, you do not have to wait six weeks for nine individuals hiding behind pre-set answers to let you know that; or one individual to decide that everything you have written is bad. The readers let you know. And, if you are really serious about your work, you will pay attention and fix the problems.
So, if you are interested in anything else I have written and did not pass the bar here, you can e-mail me. I am always willing to discuss my work with intelligent people.
