Born and raised in Canada, my first love was nature, then poetry, then writing fiction. You can check out my original fiction, etc, here:
Fanfiction has become my crazy obsession.
I have been a fanfic reader since I was in junior high when I stumbled upon a way to go onto the internet through the library catalog computers. On old computers still in dial-up, I read my very first fanfic. Star Trek Voyager, La Femme Nikita and X-men and more (I just can't remember) In my head I constantly played the what-if game with the plot and characters, although I never really bothered to write them down.
To me, fanfiction is full of possibilities. Televison is a fantastic medium but has so many limitations. Fanfiction is there to zero in on those certain moments, explaining a characters thoughts and motivations... or to blow something out of the water... making an epic story out of a season finale cliffhanger.
It's a what if game in your head where half the story is provided, you just get to follow your muse...
I have been inspired by Star Trek Voyager, and DS9, The Pretender, Seventh Heaven, La Femme Nikita Alias, Dark Angel, JAG, Law and Order SVU, Battlestar Galalctica, X-files, ER, Orphan Black, Code Black, Fringe, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Stargate SG-1, Sanctuary, Grey's anatomy and The Good Witch. And probably more... (All kinds of books and comic books too.)
I was first inspired to write and publish a Dark Angel Alias Crossover on this site, but I deleted it when the plot got too convoluted and I felt I couldn't finish it. It was incredibly fun to write however, and I wish I hadn't deleted it because I lost the original too.
Later, I became a fan of JAG and LAW & ORDER SVU and Decided to publish Sins of the Father. It took me a long time to finish, but I did and I was very proud of that fact.
I Love writing crossovers, I have several unfinished crossovers saved on my computer which may or may not be published. I like crossovers because they offer the opportunity to view two or more great characters from different perspectives not normally seen. I like to write stories about family. About overcoming, about friendship. I like stories with a little action... a little intensity as well as angst and drama. I'm not a fluffy writer, and I stick mostly to Cannon in terms of characterization and backstory. If there is one weakness in my writing, I think it would be that I can think too big... too much. (some of my unpublished stuff is like... whew! Where did that come from?)
As you can see by my stories, I have become a Greys fan.
I never thought I would be a Greys Anatomy fan, or fanfic writer, to be honest. When Greys Anatomy was first airing, I didn't have a TV, as I was moving a lot. If I did, the show didn't interest me, as I wanted action and adventure. I wanted to see characters battle through and fight through something. But all that relationship mushy-gushy stuff just wasn't for me at the time.
Believe it or not, it was the season 11 season finale that got me into it. It was Meredith, on the deck, talking to her sisters about surviving, about being there, and she can help, because she's been through worse.
And as I watched the series from the beginning, I realized what made Grey's such a hit back in the day.
Yes, Patrick helped a little. The MerDer relationship was key- but I think what made the show really last and resonate was the fact that every character was so perfectly flawed. Every character, especially MAGIC, was still developing. The pilot episode of Greys was, in my opinion, perfect. And not because of Meredith's one night stand was her boss... but because Cristina and Meredith don't do the thing where 'you say something and I say something...' George has a crush on Meredith, who barely notices him, but they still meet up and confess their feeling of inadequacy, 'I'd make a great post man, I'm very reliable,' Izzie, the model, does rectal exams, and hesitates to wake up 'the Nazi'. The 'Nazi' is a short black woman. Alex Karev screws himself by not knowing his shit, Richard has a history with Meredith's mother, and...
Not only does Meredith solve the medical mystery, she makes lovey-dovey eyes with Shepherd.
And her mother has Alzheimer's.
I've watched a dozen other shows, and nothing compares. Throughout every season of Grey's especially the first 8, our characters grow and learn and change and become... something we wish for ourselves.
And that is why I can tell a million stories with these characters. Seriously, only about a quarter of what I have in my head is on a page right now.
And here's the thing about fanfic: You can do cliche. You can write everything that's been done before, and people will love it. You can write what everyone wants to see on TV. You can re-write the dark and twisty and make it bright and shiny.
You can write what hasn't been done. You can time travel, you can alter 'ships'. You can change your character's occupation. You can make them live in another country. You can cure their diseases. Your characters can die. They can be addicted. They can have seventeen children. But what really helps us do this kind of writing is flawed characters.
And this, Greys does really well.
