My Name Is Not Atlin Merrick
A whole host of actors I adore have taken their clothes off for a role. They’ve kissed men, women, both, neither. They’ve said and done sexual things before the camera. And I know these actor’s names. They’re not ashamed of what they’ve done, because it’s what they want to do, it’s what they love.
I love writing. I do it for a living. I also love writing fan fiction. I don’t do that for a living, I do it for joy. I love writing profoundly sexual fan fiction and I’m not ashamed of it, I’m cock-crowing proud of what I do and how much I love doing it.
I started writing in the Sherlock fandom under a pseudonym because I was told I risked being sued if I didn’t. The thing is I’d already published under my own name a dozen pornographic stories in gay men’s magazines and anthologies. (See above, re: Proud.)
I’m tired of people shaming us for what we write and I’m tired of us acting as if we have to hide. I know some of us do—just as some actors and others feel they must hide being gay.
But those of us that don’t have to do that? I think it’d be awfully nice if we just came the fuck out, if we’d stand tall and represent for everyone else because we can.
I write as Atlin Merrick. I love being Atlin. I love it. But my name’s not Atlin, it’s not even close.
My name is Wendy Christine Fries and I write damn good Sherlock porn and if I ever, ever, and I mean ever meet Mark Gatiss—also a writer of porn—I’m going to hand him Suck and I’m going to park my chin in my palms and stare at him until he’s done reading and then I’m going to excitedly ask, “So? So? What’dya think, hu? What did you think?”
My name is Atlin Merrick. My name is Wendy Christine Fries. And I am so damned proud to be part of this fandom.

I wish I could be as brave as you, I’m getting there, but I’m not there yet.

I don’t understand this at all. I don’t believe fanfic writers should be ashamed of what we write, or that we should have to use pseudonyms (I support whatever you feel is right and safe and best for you), but why why why does being proud of what you write = forcing your fic on show runners, writers, actors? They aren’t your audience and they’re never going to give you the validation you want or seem to feel you deserve. Fanfic is for fans. I just wish we could remember that.

Just for the record (in case I am misconstrued) in my reblog comment  I was talking about using my real name and not being ashamed of writing fanfiction. I would prefer it, GOD PLEASE, prefer it if my fanfiction is not shown to the cast or showrunners. I would especially love it if it’s not taken out of context and used to mock fandom, me and the actors themselves. Thanks so much. :D
I admire Atlin for being brave enough to own her fangirling life. More power to you lady.

I can’t even start to describe how much I love all of you authors. Every and each of you. Your brilliant fics helped me get through my bad days and helped me endure this long hiatus. You made me love Sherlock and John more and more and actually made my life better. I’m serious. I love you, and I’m so proud of you.

We all change. When you think about it, we’re all different people all through our lives, and that’s okay, that’s good, you’ve got to keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Nt one day. I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.
