*Again, I am not sure if I should judge this one because I beta it, but Aelfgifu has one of the most compelling styles in fandom! Typos aside, you devour her works like candy because they are just SO readable! If I were to pick one author of my acquaintance who I think could go on to write professionally and do WELL, it would be Aelfgifu. She's just such an incredibly entertaining read.
