I started writing last summer, after renting the first season BtVS DVDs and becoming instantly addicted. I was recovering from painful X-Files withdrawal, so I needed something new. Angel followed shortly thereafter.David Boreanaz with his shirt off inspires me. :-) Seriously, the complex storylines and relationships of this show just lend themselves so well to fan fiction. There are so many possible worlds to explore.
This is the first time I've ever been this deeply involved in a fandom. I was pretty invested in Quantum Leap, but back then the Internet wasn't the vast warren of SHTUFF it has since become. Some aspects of it are fascinating and inspiring. Other aspects leave me either cold or baffled. I don't like rabid shippiness -- you know, the kind that ends with people on opposite sides of the virtual room mooning each other and calling each other names because they like Spike better, or Angel better, or whatever. I'm fairly invested in the Buffy/Angel romance, but I have a rule in my own fic that I never bash Spike.
