Dear Fanfics,

I love you. This is probably a bit forward of me to admit this, considering there are so many people that read so much of you, and I'm sure you hardly know who I am amidst the millions of fanfic readers in your day-to-day life (which, when I broach fanfiction with RL people I meet, I have so far encountered five people who read fanfic for every one that doesn't), but I couldn't go another day without telling you.

Today, for example, I read a lot of absolutely brilliant Sherlock fanfic today (I highly recommend etothepii on AO3 for all the AU!verse, fusion, and otherwise amazingly well-written fanfic. Start with the Sherlock/Addams Family crossover.). I haven't really been excited about Sherlock fanfic in a while (you know how it goes, new fandoms distract your attention), and then suddenly I fell in love with Sherlock fanfic all over again.

Plus, earlier this week I downloaded a whole bunch of fanfic from AO3 to my Kindle, and reading fanfiction on the subway felt so AWESOME, like I was secretly doing something super subversive. Although when my friend flipped through the fanfic on my Kindle, I didn't realize that she had gotten to the ONLY sex scene in the entire 10k+ fic, and was semi-mortified when I realized. This is just like high school when my dad picked up the book I had left bookmarked on my bed and I later realized that the book had been been bookmarked at the graphic rape scene that was again, the ONLY sex scene in the entire book. It's like the universe conspires against me or something.


The point is, I'm just feeling a lot of love for fanfiction in general today. I swear, reading well-written fanfic can brighten up my day SO much, and I have a folder in my gmail for every single Kudos, Favorite Story, Review, or Comment I've ever gotten, labeled "Validation" because going through the kind words can cheer me up when I'm blue.

And because fanfiction is AWESOME, I thought, why not finally get around to the second day of the 30 days of fanfic meme?

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

That's a lot, actually ... )

Because I've actually been steadily working on Sailor Moon fanfic for the first time in a decade (okay, that's a slight exaggeration), in honor of (finally!) returning to my first and original fandom, I'm doing the fanfic meme, which I've been thinking about for a LONG time.

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?

How apropos! )
