I only write under Shedoc, though I write for multiple fandoms.
[I write] to clear my mind, mostly. Also sometimes I don't like the way a character has behaved/reacted, so I rewrite the bits that annoyed me. Basically, I have a lot of travel time etc on my hands and I write mentally, then need to 'download' it into another format to clear my mind... am rambling, will stop...
What was the first story you wrote, and how did it feel to first place it into the public eye? Do you write in other fandoms besides TS?The first fanfic I ever wrote was actually for the A-Team; it was longhand, in a series of exercise books, and I showed a fellow fan who said it was rubbish. I've never published in that fandom. The first TS story? I can't remember, in fact I don't even think it's in the public domain! I was terrified of publishing, but talked myself into it. Thankfully strangers were kinder than my friend. Other fandoms: Due South, Stargate SG1, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes... all under Shedoc.
I don't mind concrit or feedback at all, but if I don't get it, that's okay, too. I don't like it when people write under the guise of concrit and basically try to force me to change from an Australian to an American in one sitting. I know the slang is wrong for America sometimes, but given that I'm only exposed to it on the telly (TV to you yanks) I do the best I can.
