Some Excerpts

Why did you start writing hanfic? How long have you been writing?

I started writing Hanfic because I always enjoyed everything dealing with Hanson. I loved music. And writing. So it was just a natural progression for me.Also because I found “DevilAngel” and I knew in my heart of hearts that I wanted to be a part of something like that. I started writing when I was twelve- so about fifteen years now sporadically.

What’s your favorite genre and/or pairing to write?

I love slash. Especially hancest. Zaylor was always my favorite but I have done a lot of cross-pairing with the Moffatts over the years as well. I’m not sure why; I just feel that I’m pretty decent at it. I’m a big fan of the “plot twist” though. I wrote a very short one-shot when I was in high school called “Dream Girl” that is proof of that.

What are your favorite hanfic stories and authors?

The first one I ever read was Aspen’s “DevilAngel”. I fell in love with her character portrayal. I have so many stories I love but most are old school. My favorite is the LWEO Trilogy- Kerry really took the reins on Zaylor and ran with it. I read “On My Own” & “Pretending He’s Beside Me” about a million times. I love pretty much anything by Dessilyn. “Avery” was amazing. “Drunk” was another favorite because of how she wrote Zac. I became addicted. Right now I’m reading “Ten Years & Muses” & have a few more on my reading list.
