Tyme LaDow was forced into fandom by well-meaning friends at the age of 12. At first, she couldn’t see why anyone would feel the need to explore stories outside of the canon she loved in her favorite universes, but only a few months later, she started writing it herself and checking for new postings every day. Posting to Fanfiction.net and getting feedback from friends and strangers alike lifted the fog and she plunged deep into fandom without looking back. Her newly formed passion for fandom followed her across platforms and fandoms, and eventually led her to discovering the Archive in 2011 when her then-girlfriend invited her. Over the years she has become more of a reader than a writer, though she still enjoys writing fic in addition to everything else she does in fandom. In 2014, she was perusing the OTW website marveling at how many languages the pages had been translated into, when she stumbled upon the volunteer recruitment page, which just happened to be recruiting for Tag Wrangling. Excited at the chance to help with her favorite website, she applied and was accepted fairly quickly. Over the years, she also joined the Policy & Abuse team and made many friends through her continued service to the Archive. Tyme has had several years of experience with the complicated task of juggling volunteering, work, and university. Ever since her first dive into fandom, she has been committed to fans, fandom, and the OTW.
