Hello anonymous reader,

This is my profile (as you may have already guessed). How I got started into this FanFiction stuff is very simple. I have too much time on my hands.
And I like FanFiction. It’s enormously diverse in content; It has an array of very talented authors (and some not so talented; I get to read old stories, characters, plot, etc being revitalized into new ideas and plotlines; and most importantly… it’s free.
I quickly got addicted to new and exiting stories, always on the lookout for new twists on stories I already like. So eventually, after many hours of reading, I decided it was time for me to make my own contribution.
Who knows? Maybe one day, this will help me create the next great novel. Or maybe I will keep on keep on writing anonymously till I’m old with arthritis and need a pill to get exited.
But in the meantime… look at some of my stories. Review. I’m paid only with reviews… don’t make me beg.

~Tom
