I've been interested in fanfiction before I knew it was called fanfiction, trawling Geocities and Angelfire for Mulder/Scully stories. I've been in a number of fandoms since then, Merlin and Narnia being the most recent before I stumbled into SPN. A lot of the themes that I explored in those fandoms followed me into this one: destiny angst, stranger in a strange land, caught between two worlds, troubled preoccupations with divinity, and complicated family loyalties.
Oh man, I told myself that after finishing my SPNJ2BB, I should take a break from fandom and SPN and focus on other things, but it's actually kind of difficult to do. I still have all these WIPs and active 'verse-building going on that I'm still emotionally invested in, and I'm under attack by new feels everyday. I still want to discuss what it means for the Abrahamic cosmology when ARCHANGELS ARE DEAD, and I have these new Jensen/Misha feelings I guess, and weird Edlund&Misha feelings, and I maybe kind of want to write a "Sam & Kevin on the run" fic before S8 starts, and write more Indochesters and gangsterverse and MORE ALWAYS MORE, HOW DO I MAKE IT STOP?? There is actually a fic I started writing in the middle of S5 about Cas finding God in Manila, and not only have I been jossed by the show, but I have been jossed by LIFE. The shopping center that Cas finds God in? HAS BEEN RENOVATED. It no longer looks like how I described it in the fic. JOSSED BY THE MARCH OF PROGRESS. But I still want to finish it because I want to follow through on some of the ideas I have in there.
