A Vague Approximation of Fannish History
My fannish interests started very young, with a near-obsessive focus on the Star Trek franchise, particularly the 24th century shows (Star Trek: TNG, Star Trek: DS9, and Star Trek: VOY). I had over 100 beta canon novels that I would arrange chronologically (by my own approximation of events). I also totally wrote a script (aka fanfic) in my very very youthful youth where Harry Kim has to deal with some troubles (TM) as acting captain while on nightshift. I also made a playdough approximation of B'Elanna's forehead ridges as a costume for a graciously cooperative family member. I also loved reading through canon compendiums of facts and behind the scenes stuff, Wikipedia pages, whatever.
I didn't really discover internet fandom or fic until fairly recently (and yes, I missed the print zine era). I assume most fanfiction would be bad (clearly changed my mind on that one). I started reading Harry Potter fanfiction in my late teens. Most of it was bad, but there was enough id appeal in even the worst fics to make me think hey, let's see if there's something to all this. I really enjoyed the rational fic genre that came out of HPMOR, which in itself I didn't enjoy as much.
I have written a few fics (available on my AO3 on my sidebar), but most of my fannish activity is in things like reviews, comments, adding image descriptions to fanart for accessibility, short meta commentary, jokes, etc.
Some of the things I like in fandom: meta, femslash, stories with complicated characters, fancrafts, nuanced discussions about the role of fiction (like On the Subject of Noncon Fanworks: Thoughts of a Reader, Writer, Survivor, not weird wank).
