I started writing fanfiction in 2004, maybe 2005. It's been eleven years now, so forgive me if I don't remember exactly. The first fanfic I read was even before that, a story from which I can't remember the title of on a site that no longer exists. I makes me feel kind of nostalgic on occassions, remembering the pieces I read that no longer exist on the net or stopped being updated years ago.
By now I'd like to say that I've read all of it, every crazy twist, badfic and even the most unbelievable crack-pairings there are... but it's fanfiction, so you never know. Most of the time I just accept the craziness of it all, sometimes I look at it, raise my brows, shrug to myself and move on. Your tolerance for bullshit get's pretty high over the years - that or you quit the whole fanfiction-business, I guess.
Still I love all of it. The writing, the reading, it's still my favorite pastime. In front of a TV I tend to get bored in a matter of minutes, drawing gets me frustrated most of the time, going to the cinema has become a hobby of mine in recent years but is costly when done frequently... so when I'm home and not surfing on the net I'm usually either reading or writing (or playing MMORPG).
While I write mostly the same stuff, I read pretty much everything as long as the story varies between good and acceptable. The only thing I am indeed picky about is that I value at least basic grammar in fics I read - really people, I'm not a native speaker and even I manage to not totally embarrass myself.
