Some Excerpts

When did you start writing fanfiction?

Uh. I started writing fanfic in 1992. I didn't actually put any out on the web until 1998, thank god. I needed those six years to get the author inserts out of my head.

This is a site devoted to antagonists. Could you reveal us your favourite Mr. Bad Guy?

I LURV Hannibal Lecter. I think he's the shizzy. On the other hand, Lord Voldemort is pretty cool too. I mean, he must be reading the Overlord handbook because he's making some good moves. And you can't say all that thwarting at the hands of Harry Potter and crew a[r]e messing him up. I know they are., but despite that, he's alive again, and doing *bad stuff*, isn't he? Go him.

Would you agree that fanfiction is a genre dominated by women, and if so, why do you think it's so?

I dunno. Every time I meet a fanfic writer it's female. But with some of these names, you never do know who is male, female, or an aliem from the planet Zeist. I could say that females like to communicate more, that we're naturally artistic, blah blah, that we like to create communities and get all introspective psychologially about characters, but I've SEEN Dragoncon's Trekkies. Men ain't got nothing on us.
