Here's where I got the icon/avatar from:
I've only just started here on FF. I'm still learning the proper use of FF and the interface. Suggestions, advice, corrections welcome.
FanFic is an uncharacteristic thing for me to do. So, because of that, "who I really am" won't be coming out. However, I welcome conversations. I'll say this. I'm a married guy, over 50, and a Browncoat.
Thank you for reading. I now understand why someone commented that reviews are like crack. Thank you to everyone who's left a review! I guess I'm sort of a high-wire act, no beta-reader, just me, a keyboard, my trustie spelling checker, and the marsh between my ears.
To those who have reviewed a story of mine.
In the meantime, if you'll accept it from me, I offer a grateful thanks for you taking your time to review/comment on my work. I will be responding. Thank you again.
Another note about reviews and replies.
A quick note to those who have favored one of my stories:
I'm not a writer. Heck, I have days when I feel lucky to string together a logical sentence. I did this fanfic thing on a whim, I had a story bubbling inside my head and I felt the strong urge to type it up. It was short and some folks liked it. I felt amazed that anyone would respond to something I composed. Feeling bolder I posted a couple more stories here, got some good feedback/reviews and enjoyed reading other people's work. I followed some profiles and found more stories to read that others have favored and started reading them. Lots of laughs, more than a few tears, a bit of angst, and the occasional need for a cold shower.
Then came the payoff. I started to really poke around following other stories and other people's profiles deeply and then, one day, I sat here, reading through someone's "Favorites" list and lo-and-behold, there it was. My nom de plume. I just stared at it. Someone out there, read something I wrote and clicked the "Favor" button. (Yes, I'm aware that more than one has done it but this is the first time it hit home with me.)
It was like a bolt of lightning. I felt it hit me when the realization of what that meant finally sank in. Someone really liked something I wrote and thought enough of it to want to know if I updated it more.
I have no words to explain the gratitude that this has given me. I'm truly stunned and humbled by this simple act.
To those who read/favor/follow/review the stories people write here, all I can offer you is the simple phrase "Thank you." It says a lot but it still feels insufficient to express my true feelings. Thank you thank you thank you.
