My undying fifth-grade love for the Backstreet Boys inspired me to write the novel-length saga of my affair with Brian Littrell, the cute one with the congenital heart condition. He fell in love with me as I brought him his homework in the hospital. I then lived on the tour bus with the other four, and although many other girls vied for Brian's attention, I remained his one true love.
Things never quite go the way I want them to in my favorite television shows and movies. I like to tell the untold stories about the way things should have happened. But also, fanfiction is a social outlet for me -- I love meeting new people, filling requests, and getting piles of feedback that tell me how fabulous I am. In the end, I suppose I just want to be loved.
Dawn is probably my other favorite character from Buffy. Because she gets to be human without really being a human, Dawn's perspective is unique. Joss has left her future as the Key ambiguous, which leaves plenty of room for me to have fun imagining what could be in store for her. And because both Spike and Dawn are human-but-not-human, I think their experiences are likely to draw them together. By definition, Spike is supposed to be evil, and Dawn is supposed to be good, but neither of them really sticks to those categories. I imagine them being human together.
