Why did you start writing hanfic? How long have you been writing?I haven’t been writing that long actually… I just recently got back into Hanson after about a six or seven year hiatus (someone showed me the video for Thinking Bout Something and I was instantly hooked again), and from there it all kind of snowballed. I quickly got lured into the strange and wonderful world that is Hanson fanfiction. At first I was only interested in reading it, but the more great fics I read the more I found myself wanting to be in on all the fun, and so in April I started writing my own story.
The genre you write is rather controversial. What draws you to it?I’d have to say the taboo, first and foremost. I’m extremely drawn to the whole forbidden love concept. I’ve honestly never been into just straight-up love stories… For a rom-com, they’re fine, but if I’m going to sink my teeth into a good piece of writing, it’s got to have some kind of edge, something that sets it apart from everything else. The Hancest stories are always the most angsty and off-center and dramatic, and I love that.
Where do your ideas and inspiration come from?
Actually, for the series I’m working on, all my inspiration comes directly from Hanson songs. I listen to a song and then use the lyrics as inspiration for the next chapter. I thought it seemed like an interesting enough concept and one that hadn’t really been done before so I decided to give it a go. And it’s been so much fun!…Well, it’s been fun to write… The series itself is not so fun. It’s extremely angsty, and I have a feeling it bums people out majorly, but hopefully they stick with it!
