a vision of an empty tunnel passage, a light in the distance

Yes, this is me photographed, a rarity. What happened to my hair? It used to be dark. Sigh.

About me, then: A fan since the beginning, something changed for me, within me, that September night. The story saved my spirit; I truly did find hope again. Encouraged to dust off a long-neglected enthusiasm – writing – I typed my way through some very difficult times. (More about that here.) 

I didn’t discover online fandom, though, until 2007. Silent and shy, I lurked on the BBTV Yahoo list for months. Eventually, I broke out of my shell and found family. Today, I’m honored to serve as a Winter Candlemaker and as curator of the Crystal Rose Lending Library.

And I’m still (slowly) writing.

A photograph of me, one of only two I have of my current self!

the original

The original Imagine That story site was hosted on Blogger. It still is, even though it will no longer be updated. I just don’t want to delete it. I’d lose the comments, the history of friendships that began there. I’m sentimental about it, too-dark page background, teeny little type and all. 🙂 Hopefully Blogger won’t mind if it goes quiet over there. 

If you’ve bookmarked thecelestialsurgeon (dot) blogspot (dot) com and try to visit, you’ll be redirected here. I need to look into migrating the discussions we had there – it’s on the To-Do List. 🙂

I’m pleased for you to download these stories and wallpapers for your personal use – grateful that you’d want to. I hope to have .pdf versions of all the stories available eventually. And of course, the wallpapers need a computer screen home. 

It’s more than fine with me – in fact, it really makes me smile – if you’d like to link to something you find here, but, please, do get my okay to outright publish a story or piece of art on another web site. Thanks!

Since most visitors do not leave comments or send emails (**sob, sob** because comments and emails are so encouraging), page view data lets me know that stories are being read. And without Google fonts and the temporary cookie it employs, Imagine might be unreadable! Other cookies aid in site security and spam detection.
