fanfic meme

All right, fuck this noise, I want to get back into a fannish mindset. After posting about my lack of fannishness on Friday night, I promptly opened my Steve/Bucky WIP of Doom and stayed up until 2am revising & completing it. Which makes it the first fic I've completed in 2015. SIGH. But still! That's in beta now, and I don't actually want it to be the ONLY fic I complete in 2015, so I need to start thinking about fic again. With that in mind, stealing the "30 Days of Fanfic" meme from [personal profile] escritoireazul (and probably other people as well).

I won't actually post every day, but I'll get through it eventually.

1 – How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?
X-Files! I was thirteen and obsessed with the show, and found an AOL chatroom devoted entirely to X-Files discussion. (Yeah, it's dated, but at least it wasn't an IRC chat!) Finally, a community of fans just as obsessive as I was! At some point, someone there must've linked to fanfic, and the idea of CONTINUING THE STORY hit alllll of my little thirteen-year-old buttons. I started reading anything I could find, particularly once I figured out what MSR meant. (Mulder/Scully Romance, FYI.) My bitty shipper heart grew three sizes that day. The show itself was awesome, but there were people out there writing the stories the show never actually told! Where Mulder and Scully finally, like, kissed! Very exciting. And since I'd been writing short stories since I was a small child, it wasn't much of a leap to writing my own fanfic, too.

My first fic was a character study of Agent Pendrell, oddly enough. Go figure.
