I had just started watching the X-Files, coming to the party a little late and trying to catch up by reading episode summaries online and joining X-Files discussion mailing lists. That led to reading fan fiction, and on a lark, I wrote my own. I was terrified to show it to anyone, but I was very lucky to get some encouraging feedback from a few established writers once I'd plucked up the courage to post it. That experience made me want to continue.
After my interest in the X-Files waned, I moved on to Buffy, and then to Harry Potter. I have to say, the readers in the Harry Potter fandom really seem to be a unique breed of generous souls. I'm glad my interests have led me there.
[a wish for Harry's fate]: Oh, you had to ask me the question that will make everyone mad at me. What should it be, or what do I want it to be? I think it's more poetic if he doesn't make it, but I wish, for his sake, that he rides off into the sunset, safe and happy.
