Why did you start writing hanfic? How long have you been writing?I wrote fanfic for The Walking Dead fandom and it was something that I really enjoyed. Once I joined the Hanson fandom, I found myself looking for the fanfic. I noticed a special bond between the fic writers in this fandom and I want to be a part of that. I’m still fairly knew to the Hanfic scene having started writing in June, but I have always enjoyed writing for as long as I can remember.
I know you’ve written for other, non-RPF fandoms. Aside from the obvious, how is that different from hanfic?
RPF is a little more can difficult to write because you’re always thinking ‘Am I portraying this person correctly?’ or ‘Gosh, how would they react in that situation?’ Fictional characters give you pretty much free reign on how they act or what they do. I also take into account that I’m writing about a real person so I make sure that I am being respectful too. RPF offers a different challenge then writing fictional characters but it’s one that I am definitely enjoying.
What are your favorite hanfic stories and authors?The Innocents by Malfunkshon is one of my favorites. I normally don’t read much slash/cest fiction but the way she writes it is so artistic and the plot is amazing. It’s kept me on the edge of my sit waiting for the next chapter. I can’t wait to see what other stories she has up her shelve when The Innocents series is done. Withasmile87 has started a Hanson/TWD crossover, Radioactive, and it is really interesting and of course TWD is close to my heart. There is so much good fanfic out there it’s hard to list them all.
