There I was, innocently minding my own business in a country full of polar bears and moose hide bikinis, when a wormhole appeared and sucked me into tumblr. Now I've fallen into Bering and Wells and I can't get up.

Friends and family and cats who are reading over your owners’ shoulders,
I am so excited that I finally get to share some awesome, awesome news with you. I have accepted a senior editor position at Autostraddle, the largest independently owned queer/feminist website on this whole big internet!
Six and a half years ago, AfterEllen founder and former Editor in Chief Sarah Warn plucked me out of the comments section of a Hot 100 article and asked if I’d be into writing a couple of posts a week. I was working in a tiny cube counting numbers, too afraid to even post in The L Word forums, even though my main dream in life was to become a writer. Now, I’ve written over a million (no, for real!) words for AfterEllen and interviewed every one of the actors I used to fawn over from The L Word and made a full-time career out of writing and editing.
But, most importantly of all, over the last six and a half years, I’ve gotten to meet you. You have invited me into your lives week after week, year after year, and laughed with me and cried with me and raged with me and made one hundred million inside jokes with me. People often say writing on the internet is a thankless job, but I’ve found that to be the opposite of true. Yeah, you have to work 100 hours a week to make enough money to buy peanut butter. And no, you never get to sleep. But no matter how tired or penniless I have been over the years, y’all have kept me going, because every time I cracked myself open to share more of my story with you, you just opened yourselves up and gave me your stories too.
You have fueled me with your kindness, cushioned me with your encouragement, made me snort orange juice out of my nose more times than I care to admit, and literally saved my dog’s life.
Together, we have created something real and rare. Like #BooRadleyVanCullen, for example! That’s all us, man! That’s me and you meeting up every week to laugh and swoon a freak out and talk to TV writers in a language we created together!

I’m so emotionally conflicted. Its everything I wanted from Warehouse 13 but there is no Myka Bering & bisexual H.G. Wells and this pains me.
For all her not inconsiderable wardrobe, with its range from the purely practical, to the solely sensual, Helena’s clothing tends to fall into a somewhat limited color palette. Black features heavily, along with shades of grey and blue and some earth tones. What lighter pieces she has tend toward cool colors - ice blues and silvers. For all her striking beauty, and clear awareness of the effect her face and figure have on others, Helena is rarely flashy. At least, not while Myka has known her. She wonders sometimes if it was different, before Christina, but every time Myka thinks of asking, the memory of the shadows in Helena’s eyes whenever she speaks of the past is enough to deter her.
There are things Myka Bering knows about H.G. Wells.
She knows the reasons for her writing and the research behind her ideas, which books are dearest to her heart and which she argued ceaselessly with Charles over. She knows the places Helena has traveled and the famous people she’s met…and slept with. Myka knows that Helena quite happily drinks coffee and doesn’t miss 19th century food at all, that she doesn’t care for rain unless she can stay inside and read all day, and that she will never wake without missing her daughter.
Helena George Wells is not a morning person. It’s not that she sleeps in, per se. Left to her own devices Helena would keep a chaotic schedule, driven to bed only when exhaustion finally forced her body to override her mind’s endless working. Myka has no doubt that back in London Helena could often be found passed out in various graceless poses in her workroom or the aisles of the Warehouse, where she would just collapse after wandering the streets of London or furiously working at some mechanical mystery.
