Shiva is a Daria fan who in 2012 turned into a writer of Daria fanfics, posts under the name Shiva-J at Fanfiction.net. In RL, he lives in Indiana with a cat named Whiskey and outside the Daria-fandom, he enjoys watching movies, playing video and computer games, reading, and collecting Buddha statues and Nutcrackers. The first episode that he saw was That Was Then, This Is Dumb and became an instant fan.
In terms of fanfic style, Shiva has proven fond of unusual 'ships (despite being a self-declared fan of Daria/Tom), mixing genres, and doing multiple series at the same time.
Despite his relatively recent entry into writing fan fiction, Shiva is easily one of the most prolific Daria fan fiction writers ever. The sheer volume of his work, as well as the quality of his writings, have made Shiva easily comparable to some of the most acclaimed Daria fandom writers of all (such as The Angst Guy, to whom Shiva has been deemed his "spiritual successor").
