Xander obsessive since 2002, with an initial craze for Xander/Spike and a more recent Xander/Giles convert, with a sideline in reading Xander with Angel(us), Lindsey or Oz and a guilty fetish for Xander/Riley. You may have detected a running theme *g* I also have a kink for really good Xander/Faith. In more recent years I'm just happy to find any decent Xander related fic. :)

In case anyone is curious, I discovered recently that there is another Sparrow2000 (note the capital S) on and Tumblr. Just to let folks know that isn't me *g*

With apologies to Anthony Bourdain...

I write in the Buffy 'verse. I started off with Spike/Xander, and still love the pairing but over the last few years I've written a lot of Xander on his own because I find it fascinating to explore all the different facets of the boy and it's also fun to wind his key and see how he reacts to whatever new trauma I'm putting him through...

If you're new to this particular bird table, feel free to wander through my memories - hopefully there is something for everyone there - or you can find a list of all my stuff on my Master list

I read in the Jossverse, NCIS, Sentinel and most recently Merlin and Sherlock. I read Slash, Gen and Het as the mood takes me - my only criteria is that the story interests me and keeps my attention.

I rec in any 'verse where I find good writing, because good writers should be supported and I believe in spreading the love. I have a series of genre-based rec lists mostly featuring Xander (what you're surprised!). Click on the link for Sparrow's Bat Shit Crazy Rec List Project.

From October 2006 - October 2008 I posted faithfully every week at tamingthemuse through sun, rain and moving half way across the world. These are the pretty milestones I got along the way...

Over the last few years some lovely people have voted for some of my stories at a few of the Buffy 'verse awards site. I am very lucky to have such generous readers. Pets the pretties...
