Author has written 6 stories for Friends.
April 3, 2019: Hi everyone :)
It has been, like, two and a half years since I first landed on this website by accident. In search of extra scenes and lost scripts, I discovered this place full of imagination. Reading your stories has triggered me to try to write something too, and by doing that I rediscovered how much fun it is. It took me some time and a whole lot of courage, but a little over a year ago I finally decided to post one of those fics I had written. And I’m really glad I did.
Out of the TV shows I have watched, there are only three that I read fanfiction about.
‘FRIENDS’ is my all-time favorite TV show, and it is also the show that got me on this website. I watched the show for the first time four years ago. I was just surfing through the channels when I saw that ‘FRIENDS’ was on. It somehow sounded familiar, so I thought I’d give it a try. The thing with TV shows is, that you only have to watch it for a couple of minutes to know if you’re going to like it or not. I loved ‘FRIENDS’ immediately. The first episode I remember watching (maybe it was even the first), was ‘The One With The Stoned Guy’. I had to laugh so hard at the scene where Joey teaches Ross how to talk dirty and then Chandler walks in and just stands there and listens, without either of them noticing. In those four years since I’ve known the show, I have rewatched it lots of times on TV and later on my DVDs. And I still do, because it really is impossible to grow tired of it.
My favorite character on the show is Chandler and my favorite relationship is Chandler/Monica. The stories I read here, are mostly based around this couple. And while I totally support Ross and Rachel’s relationship too, reading fanfics with them being the main couple hasn’t really gotten my interest yet.
In the very beginning, I’ve also read a number of Joey/Chandler fics, just because I was curious about how writers would get them to fall in love with each other. But in my opinion, Joey and Chandler are written very feminine in the majority of those stories.
I also have a soft spot for Chandler/Rachel, and I really like reading fanfictions about those two. My favorite story on here is actually one where these two end up together.
And, of course, I love reading fics which focusses on the great friendship these six characters share.
The second show that got me interested to read fanfictions about is ‘Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip’, a show I found when I was looking for other TV shows and movies in which Matthew Perry stars. It’s too bad the show only has one season, but fortunately, there are some great fanfictions written for that show.
And finally, there is ‘Criminal Minds’, a show I only started reading fanfictions about very recently. One and a half year ago, I started watching this show and at this moment I am in the middle of the eighth season. So that means that I am not caught up with the show yet, but that didn’t stop me from visiting the fandom on this site.
Where the show is mainly about cases, I come here to read light-hearted (sometimes silly, but funny) stories that show the bond these colleagues share with one another, also in their private lives. I treasure all those little moments in the show itself, so seeing those moments expanded in fics really makes me happy.
My favorite character on the show is Aaron Hotchner, and I can honestly say that I’m already dreading the moment where he won’t be part of the show anymore. I will, most definitely, continue to watch the show, but still…
I like that in the show, the main characters don’t have any romantic relationships (yes, I know what happened in the finale of the fourteenth season, and no, I don’t like it) with one another. However, here in the world of fanfiction where anything is possible, I do like the idea of Hotchner and Prentiss together as a couple. While watching the show, those two, quite unexpectedly, got my interest. Later when I went in search of reading fanfics about those two, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I wasn’t the only one interested in this couple. Prior to the events of '100' (an episode that really had me crying non-stop during the episode, and for some time afterward), I always hoped for Hotch and Haley to work things out, that’s why I prefer reading Hotchniss stories that take place after that episode.
As you can see, I have so far only written stories for ‘FRIENDS’, and I assume that will stay like that. At least, for now. While reading one of the fics I’ve written, it’s possible that you will see grammar and spelling errors, that’s because English isn’t my first language, so sorry in advance for all those mistakes.
And at last, I would like to thank everybody who has read, reviewed, favorited and/or followed one or more of my fics. You are amazing! :)
