Hello and welcome! Thanks for reading and looking at my stuff, I’m very grateful for it! I’m Beverly L. Anderson, phoenixreal, and Amethyst Phoenix. I’m a writer, poet, artist, and a lot of other things. So here I figure I’ll explain a few things about myself, just in case you’re curious about me. I know people tend to get upset when people write about things that are as specific I do without being members of the groups they belong to.
I’m non-binary transmasculine person, bigender with a male and female aspect, as well as a blended middle aspect that I live most my life in. I’m also a pansexual, though I explain to people my sexuality is typically male and dominant. This confuses people sometimes, mostly because they’ve never met someone who identifies this way. This is part of the reason most my writing is slash/yaoi. I write a lot with pairings that both have penis bits, so it isn’t a matter of gender so much as the physical bits. I can, and will occasionally, write about those with vagina bits, but because of my own sense of dysphoria with my own vagina bits, I prefer not to write those characters unless I’m in the appropriate headspace. Yes, I use the words bits. Deal.
I am a kinkster. When I use this word, I refer to myself as someone who is not a full-time member of the BDSM lifestyle. I know, there are a dozen “definitions” of kinksters, one of which is just a synonym for “kinky”. Honestly, that’s not what it means anymore if you’re active in modern or online scenes, but define it however you like. My self-identification, so it can mean whatever I define it as. I am a switch in BDSM, meaning I am both Dominant and submissive. I’m still exploring my submissive side, but I’m leaning toward an inclination that I’m a little or pet, but we’ll see. As a Domme, I’ve done orgasm control, humiliation, and cuckolding. I’ve done this vis Skype as I don’t have a scene locally. I work with my dearest uke, Wolf, AKA Kenyon Y. Hunt, who is my co-author on my original Chains of Fate Series. She is a switch herself, and we have a lot of fun writing BDSM.
I’m also a pagan. Currently, I practice North American Eclectic Wicca, but in generally, I go with what I feel. I identify with Kali, the Morrigan, and Kwan Yin as my favored goddesses, and I identify with Ganesh, Loki, and Buddha as my favored gods. I greatly enjoy visiting and conversing with the folks at both Hindu and Buddhist temples about my religious ideologies (and I highly recommend visiting temple if you are at all curious; they are frankly amazing and welcoming people, in my experience). However, I am a skeptic as well. This means I love science, and the fact that I’m pagan doesn’t interfere with my belief in science. I believe that spirituality is a completely different level from science, and they can coexist. When I use incense and oils, I don’t believe for a second that anything “magic” in the colloquial sense is going to happen. Rather, I believe it enforces my own power over my world.
I’m an Aspie (Asperger’s). I have what are considered atypical, or female labeled, traits. A have several traits that are common among autistic folks, and folks with autism, so sometimes, I come off as being different. I tend to overexplain things, have severe anxiety of several kinds including social anxiety, have issues with sounds in particular, and a tendency not to get sarcasm and conventional humor. I have a rather dry and dark sense of humor myself. I also have two children on the autism spectrum (they have not chosen how they wish to self-identify yet).
My education is in counseling. I have a master’s degree in the field, and one day I would like to become a sex therapist with a specialty in working with transgender folks, non-transition, pre and post transition. I would like to help people get access to transition services and the things they need. Right now, my mental and physical health is impeding me, so I write instead. I have depression, anxiety, hypothyroidism, possible fibromyalgia, and a few other things that mean I spend a lot of time with doctors. I love psychology in general, and have done a lot with post traumatic stress disorder, rape trauma syndrome, and recovery from emotional, psychological, and physical abuse, as well as working with women and minorities.
After all that, now to the writing bit. I’ve listed the above to explain where I’m coming from (if you care), and to kind of let you get to know me. The one reason I love the fanfiction world is because it is easy to contact the writer. I’m working on making a name for myself in the original market, but I will always love fanfiction because it is fun and relaxing to write.
