The first time, or the second time? Because when I was 14, long before I knew what fanfic was, I would write exceedingly silly Batslash. As time goes on, this seems more and more like a big hurking sign. However, it's the second time that got me into fandom proper. (Well, the fic aspects of fandom proper. I suppose technically I'd been in other aspects of fandom for a dog's age. It all sort of blurs and intertwines.) The second time, it was because I was feeling guilty about reading all these stories by people I was talking to on a regular basis about BtVS. I felt that, drat it, I should be producing something for them to read.
I like to play endless games of what-if in my head. I love the click when it all comes together. I love the rush when a string of words comes out of your fingertips, and you're not sure where they came from, but you love the way they flow.
