Some Excerpts

One of the few comic books I bought on those long back-seat drives cross country as a kid. ;) In those days Lois was a pretty awful character. She had two goals (neither had a thing to do with journalism. ;) Unmask Clark as being Superman (how she got the idea he was Superman, I don't know) and to trap Superman into marrying her. She also had hair-pulling fights with Lana Lang.

[What attracted you to writing Fanfic and what about it do you enjoy?] Making the characters say and do things I'd like ;) Keeping with the show's continuity and characterization as much as possible since I love the show it seems like the best way to thank the show.

Fanfic is *people*. Fans who love something and feel compelled to continue it in this form of writing. Their love comes through their writing, and that's the best part ;) An attorney for 20th Century Fox confronted a fanfic writer of The X-Files and asked this person "Why don't you write something original? Something that someone else doesn't hold the copyright to?" His absolute ignorance of what "fanfic" was all about was almost laughable. It's not about 'writing' it's about 'experiencing', being part of something bigger than yourself, and there are some people who don't understand that, and never will.
