Angela Vaughn a.k.a. EricIzMine was a trailblazer in our world of FanFiction. She charted a course and never strayed; she was true to her voice, stuck to her guns and was never afraid to express her opinions. Her body of work is sadly incomplete but hints of where it would end up are scattered throughout her MultiVerse series. The massive undertaking of creating such varied stories and intertwining them into such a cohesive overarching narrative became not only Angela’s focus, but the focus of all of those who assisted in her research and editing.
Angela was one of the first FanFiction writers that opened herself up to her fans in a public forum, she allowed us to befriend her on FaceBook, to get to know her not simply as a favoured author but as a fellow human being. She was kind, funny, honest and loyal, but most of all she was beloved by all of her followers. Angela’s larger than life personality brought together a large group of diverse people who formed her fan club The Brat Pack, through her we found each other. She devoted much of her spare time in participating in that group always willing to answer questions, to toss out teasers and reward our patience with not only early chapters but exclusive outtakes.
A standard was set with Angela, in her writing and generous personality, that we doubt will ever see eclipsed. She stands at the origins of what is great about this fandom and in her memory we carry it on.
