I'm a guy who's been reading fanfics for about 15 years now. Yeah, crazy right? I guess it satisfies me in a way I still don't fully understand. I started after I read the HP-series and found that it left me wanting more. So I searched for more, got to this database eventually and the rest is history. Before fanfiction and books though, I watched movies and TV. All of these types of entertainment have one thing in common: stories. I like stories. But I guess that's true for everyone in some way, right? The thing that hooked me was how many different entertaining narratives can be constructed in the same universe or a derivative universe. And I guess it let's me alter my reality for a moment. God puberty was a special hell (laugh). Hey, some people used drugs and I delved into stories. I think I did OK. Stories saved me from myself in a way. Ugh angsty, let's move on shall we?
I'm not a native English speaker. I was taught the Queen's English at school and mostly American English in film and TV in general. It is still far from perfect, I acknowledge. If I ever get to actually publishing a story, I expect my dear readers not to keep this in mind and not to judge me too harshly on it. As I have previously alluded to, I'm experienced when it comes to narratives of all genres. Through the years I've come up with hundreds of stories, though I never really went with any of them. The trouble is that I have issues with properly communicating the narrative to readers. And this is frankly because I'm lacking as a writer. I fear that the only way to fix this is to practice. Write out the story I have to the best of my abilities, shred it to pieces and start again with the leftovers. You could say I'm a perfectionist when it comes to this. Or maybe just prideful, I don't really know. Don't even know why I writing this now. It's not like I'm going to be publishing anything any time soon or that anyone is ever going to read it before I erase it. It just feels good to write some things done once and a while, you know? To get it out of your system an structured into 2D. It's calming.
Sometimes I wonder though. If I spent half the amount of time on something wondrous like physical sciences than I did on fanfiction, movies and books; what would my life have been like? Then I realise; that is another story. The one I have right now, allows me to be everything and everyone for a moment in time. It might not be real, but it's real enough to me.
