I've been writing, on and off, since I was a teenager, but it wasn't until the advent of the Internet (yes, I am that old) that I realised I could get other people to read my stuff. I do crossovers -which is possibly the lowest form of fanfiction, at least in the eyes of canon purists - because I like exploring possibilities.
I write in a unified storyverse of my own creation. I append here a history of that storyverse. By all means comment.
Note on dates: These are given in the form BCE (Before Common Era), CE (Common Era) and/or Federation StarDate (where known/appropriate).

The Engineers sacrifice one of their number to add strands of their DNA to Earths' developing life.
Arrival of the Elder Things.
Cambrian Period (550-500 Million years ago): The Spawn of Cthulhu arrive on Earth.
Permian Period (300-250 Million years ago): The Great Race of Yith arrive on Earth.
Jurassic Period (200-150 Million years ago): The Abominable Mi-Go, or Fungi from Yuggoth, set up a base inthe Himalayas
Cretacious Period (150-65 Million years ago): The noble Silurian Race evolves and begins its rise to civilisation.
During this period the star-travelling hunters known as Predators first come to Earth.
Toward the end of this Period the Great Race depart.
At the end of this Period, a warp-driven cargo ship, brought back in time from 2161 by the Doctor, crashes into Earth, causing an extinction-level event. The Cthulhu-spawn cities sink under the sea, where they remain. The Elder Things also retreat beneath the seas, or to underground cities. The Silurians place themselves in hibernation.
Paleocene Period (65-55 Million years ago): The Alterans, also known as the Ancients, arrive on Earth and begin colonisation. They build the StarGates and other artefacts.
Sometime during this period (it is assumed) the civilisation of the Elder Things was destroyed in a Shoggoth rebellion.
Miocene Period (25-5 Million Years Ago): Toward the end of this period, a plague infects the Alteran civilisation. The survivors flee Earth in a city-ship named Atlantis, going to the Pegasus Galaxy.
Pliocene Period (5-2 Million years ago): The semi-ascended race known as the Valar arrive on Earth. They separate into two factions; one led by Manwe settles on a large continent in the West; the other, led by Melkor, settles in the East.
Three ships carrying colonists from a race known as the Quendi (Elves) arrive. The Quendi dismantle their ships and set up colonies on the Eastern continent. Later the majority of them move West, taking the three Zero-point Modules, or Silmarils, that were the power sources of their ships.
The Valar attack Melkors' city of Utumno and take him prisoner.
The first hominids evolve far to the South.
Pleistocene Period (2 Million years ago): Humans spread across the Eastern continent. They are divided into three distinct species: the Khazad, or Dwarfs (Homo Neanderthalensis); the Periannath, Halflings or Hobbits (Homo Floresiensis); the Atani or Men (Homo Sapiens) .
It is believed that during this period the Human shamans tapped into certain natural forces to create the being known as the Slayer, a woman with enhanced physical abilities whose task it is to protect humanity from low-level demonic threats such as Vampires. Ever after, many women in each generation have the potential to become Slayers, but only one in each generation can be active.
On the farthest edge of the Eastern continent, a Silurian community is revived from hibernation by an earthquake. They enslave the tribes of Men (Homo Sapiens) who have wandered into the region. This kingdom comes to be known as Valusia. At a later date, some of the Silurians -wishing to avoid all contact with Men – migrate to the continent of Lemuria, in the Pacific Ocean.
The events of TheSilmarillion. After the final defeat of Melkor, many Quendi move back West. The Men who aided them in the War are given a large island as a reward. This island is called Numenor.
A plague severely reduces the Silurian population of Valusia, allowing the Humans there to overthrow their masters. Some Humans, under the leadership of Phondath, make their way to Lemuria and found cities there. Those who remain in Valusia descend into barbarism. Phondaths' descendants are attacked by the Silurians of Lemuria – the Dragon Kings - and defeat them after a long war.

Some Numenorean survivors make it to Middle-Earth, where their superior technology allows them to quickly dominate the local tribes. They form an alliance with the Khazad and the few Quendi who remain in Middle-Earth to attack Sauron, who withdraws to parts unknown, leaving his city of Barad-Dur to be sacked. The Numenoreans divide the north-western portion of Middle-Earth into two kingdoms, but their race and numbers begin to decline.
After several centuries, Sauron begins to reassemble his forces, relying on the decline of the Numenorean rulers to ensure his renewed domination. The Valar are aware of this and dispatch Messengers of their own kind, in disguise, to Middle-Earth to rally opposition. These are the Istari, the original Wizards.
The War of the Ring takes place.
Around this time, certain Humans begin to develop the capacity to manipulate probability, and become known as wizards and witches.
