'rith's mailing list


I'm Kerithwyn Jade, better known as 'rith.

Who am I?

Heck, does it matter? I love comics, always have. I was reading comics when girls just didn’t *do* that kind of thing and we were eyed as alien invaders when we dared to broach the inner sanctum of the comic shops.

Like so many others, I grew up reading the X-Men. For a long time that was the only game in town. Eventually I found other comics that drew me nearly as powerfully, and that was a good thing, because the X-Men had lost their charm—and yeah, that was while Chris Claremont was still writing.

About six years ago I discovered the Legion of Super-Heroes, and they utterly supplanted the mutants forever as my most cherished comic team. I love team books; the dynamic between characters remains as fascinating as ever, though the players change. I can’t resist the good runs of Avengers and Titans, and Busiek’s Thunderbolts, the Levitz Legion, and yes, Claremont’s X-Men.

Then there are the individual characters: Nightwing and Robin and Oracle (thanks to Chuck Dixon), Arsenal (thanks to Devin Grayson), Tempest (thanks to Phil Jimenez), and too many of the Legionnaires to name. I love these characters—these people. They’re part of my life, fictional though they may be. What a wonder it was to discover the Internet and (pardon) legions of fans who felt as I did, and who expressed that love in writing. Not for publication or money or fame, but for *fun.*

And now I’m having fun, too.


Some cautions:

Much (but not all) of the fiction on these pages contains ADULT CONTENT. Such content will be clearly marked. Stories may be marked m/f (for male/female sex), or “slash,” which indicates sex between characters of the same gender: m/m for male/male and f/f for female/female. If such concept disturbs you, scroll down to something else. “PWP” means Plot, What Plot—an indicator that the story is mostly a sex romp with little other story content, although I do strive to make even the PWPs exercises in character exploration.

Assignations of Blame (and Fictives).

The Dracoverse

In canon Jason Todd died a horrible death at the hands of the Joker. In fanfiction, he has a chance to live again. This (highly recommended!) project was begun by Kaylee, and is noted on this site because Kaylee included that AU’s version of Dick and Garth in a relationship similar to the one created by Dannell and I in “Sea and Sky.”

All stories on this page are wonderful, particularly Kaylee’s own establishing story “Here There Be…”. Stories that contain significant Dick/Garth content include Mel’s A Dinner of Herbs and Dannell’s Draco Draconis .
