I once read the bio of a person (who, like me, didn't have any stories) who had written in his/hers bio that s/he pitied the one who read it. I... won't use the emotional energy required to do such a thing. Because... I'm lazy. Healthily lazy. But I probably would have felt the same way, if I weren't. Perhaps.
Anyway, I've read fanfiction for quite a while, in my opinion. I admit to my unfortunate lurker tendencies (I'm sorry, world!), but once in a while, I read something that I absolutely adore and I review. Sometimes I just feel generous (conceited as I am) and do it anyway. I haven't ever written any fanfiction myself (at least not any that counts). I, as most people on this site, am a sucker for good romance, though I am able to appreciate non-romantic fics as well sometimes.
Quite a lot of my favourites are... well, not my favourites anymore. I just... haven't cleaned up my list in a while. Perhaps someday...
