Excerpts

How did you become a Fact Finder?

Not sure. I often have to find out stuff for my job and I've been pretty good at tracking stuff down. The Internet is an amazing resource, as long as you remember that any information you find there is only as good as whoever put it up there so always consider the source!

Why did you become a fact finder?

I guess because I think a story that keeps the facts in mind is less likely to throw someone out of a story if those facts don't add up. Not all stories, of course. Some stories go against the facts, i.e. AUs and fantasies, and I love some of them.

Do you think "facts" are important to the fandom? Why and how?

Yes, especially canon facts. I think if you don't stay true to canon facts, then you might as well be writing about any two guys. Canon is very important.

Which type of facts do you prefer researching ? The real actor info, canon info ? Which is easiest to find? Hardest?

Canon, definitely, which I also believe is easier to find. I try to leave the real actors and their real lives alone. I feel they've done their job by giving us their blood, sweat and tears to provide us with a show that has inspired so much (community and fanfiction, to name a couple of things that, for instance, TS has given us).

How do you find all these facts on TS?

Mostly from remembering or re-watching the episodes and also using some of the good website sources like Nightowl's page or Becky's page.
