First DS fic posted: 1996 according the notes at the end of at least one of her fics.
Full disclosure: I've never met AC Chapin in any capacity and have no idea if she's even in fandom (any fandom) anymore.
Pairings: Fraser/Vecchio, Gen, Fraser/Victoria, Fraser/Thatcher and Vecchio/Angie
Style and strengths: AC Chapin's style is hard to pin down. She's very good at the slightly darker aspects of emotion; of want and need and love and regret all bound up together. However her lighter fluff is also lovely and her F/V has the hallmark of great banter. She's also very good at Ray Vecchio and his emotional turmoil, but her Fraser too is perfectly realised. They come across as human beings above all. Human and with human flaws.
Other DS/C6D activity: None that I know of. When she was writing in 1996 C6D was unknown.
Some favourites:
I'd rec all her fics if I could but...

Across (Fraser/Vecchio, PG). This is probably my favourite dark supernatural fic ever. Not only does it have that 'crack' element it's also a perfect study of the Fraser/Vecchio relationship in terms of give and take.

Acharnement (Fraser/Vecchio, R). This again is a wonderful study of give and take and need. There's an undercurrent of real dark emotion in this too. It shows the complexity of Fraser/Vecchio.

A Motion Not My Own (Vecchio/Angie, PG). This is a bittersweet fic looking at the end of the relationship between Ray Vecchio and Angie. It's just heartbreaking.

Pancakes (Gen, G). So as not to rec just the darker stuff this is hilarious. Entirely dialogue it's a typical morning in the Vecchio home. You don't really need anything but dialogue as the voices come through so clearly. As does the chaos.

And finally The Spelling Lesson (Fraser/Vecchio, G) Fraser unintentionally critiques a line of Ray's poetry. The banter is brilliant and the sweetness not too overwhelming.
