"Why do you write fanfiction?"
I was idly proofreading an one-shot story for the third time when my friend asked me. "Why do you write fanfiction?"
Why, I repeated to myself. It makes my nights shorter and my days restless. I don't get any money from it. So ... Why? Why do I write fanfiction?
Not for the reviews; not for the bookmarks or fun comments; not for the amazing people I end up being friends with.
My friend was still staring at me, obviously waiting for an answer. You should never lie to a best friend, so I offered him the simple truth:
"It just doesn't get out of my head. And helps me through boring days and sleepless nights." I flinched when I realized that fanfiction sounded like an one-night stand. I didn't think that was right ...
He seemed satisfied though, shrugging in reply.
But you can't lie to a best friend.
"And ..." I started again, meeting my shy eyes with him. "I love it."
Yeah; that's why.
I love it.
