How long have you been writing fan fiction and/or making fan art and/or whatever else (vids, knitted goods, pornographic gingerbread cookies)?
If you count making up h/c with lots of self-insertions (*cringe*) about my favorite TV shows, then about 35 years. Online fandom and sharing my fic with others: since 1996, with a hiatus from 2001 to 2005.
I'm monofannish and my loyalties last for years. (I've also worked for the same organization since 1991.) I wrote ST Voyager from 1996 to 2001, then I was inactive, then I came back slowly when TVLand started running Emergency! re-runs and an online fandom developed. Between Voyager and Emergency!, I read LOTR, HP and X-Fileswhenever semielliptical sent me links to her favorites. She dragged me into SGA at the end of 2006. I'm really grateful!
As far as creative processes go, what type of writer/artist are you? Do you create an outline/find photo references/make maps, etc., or do you jump in and go with the flow?If an idea catches my imagination, I just start writing. I look things up if I'm curious but I'm probably way too willing to handwave away anything inconvenient. Inconsistency in SGA canon (or any show) doesn't ping my radar.
