Fandom is just a goddamn hobby

(In which I make plans to celebrate a Significant Fandom Date for myself and then miss it because I got the dates wrong.)

Ten years and one day ago, December 4, 1997, I posted my first fanfic story. It was The X-Files, of course. I'd been in fandom, reading and chatting a bit, for a couple of months, and I really wanted to play too.

The first story I started never saw the light of day, sadly. It was a casefile and a crossover with Sweet Valley High, based on a SV Kids Super Snooper book where, as elementary school kids, Jessica and Elizabeth and their friends are abducted by aliens and have to help out this alien princess. She gives them her necklace to say thank you and even though they forget about the abduction, they still have the necklace. My story took place when they were in high school and Jessica found the necklace in her room. She remembered the abduction but Elizabeth denied it ever happened. Mulder and Scully came out to Sweet Valley and Stuff Happened. God, it would have been so glorious. There was even a scene of Mulder and Todd Wilkins playing one-on-one basketball.

Anyhow, I don't have any new fic for you, because I'm beavering away at my smex pinch-hit, but I went through and picked one story from each year, as kind of a retrospective. But don't read the early ones because they kind of suck.

1997: Male Bondage
X-Files, R, humour.
Mulder, Skinner, Krycek, and special guest star Tom Colton (remember him from Squeeze?) attend a rather...different kind of seminar.
First story I ever posted.

1998: Free Agents
X-Files, Millennium, Twin Peaks, R, humour.
The annual meeting and mixer of the Free Agents of the FBI.
I drew the pairings out of a hat.

1999: Phantom Pain
Star Wars, Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan
...for love is strong as death...
This one still makes me laugh.

2000: The Rose, the Thorn, the Blood, and the Moon
LotR, Legolas/Gimli, R.
Sweet friends, sweet words, sweet deeds.
Pre-movie fic! But of course they're canon anyhow. And I couldn't quite not link to the Jar Jar slash too.

2001: As I Went Down in the River to Pray
Greek mythology.
Peirithous in the underworld.
I'm not sure what to say about this one. It's moody but I still like it,

2002: Three O'Clock in the Morning
LotR, Merry/Pippin, PG13.
Under the mallorn tree.
I love these two so much. SO MUCH.

2003: In Love
HP, Marcus/Oliver, PG13.
What's a boy in love supposed to do?
There was so much to choose from from this year, but I already knew this was the one. Oh, boys! I also made a recording of this one, if you want something to listen to on the bus.

2004: Kobayashi Maru
Stargate, Daniel/Paul, NC17.
Missing scene for 48 Hours. Sometimes Daniel doesn't want to think.
I always wanted to use this title. Also, to write Paul and Daniel having sex.

2005: Not the Triumph
Prince of Tennis, TezuRyo, R.
Beijing 2008. Tezuka's last chance.
They still make me sigh.

2006: 300
Prince of Tennis, InuKai, R.
Inui wonders why.
My favourite pairing, my favourite story. Which took me a freaking year to finish.

2007: Loser
Aim for the Sky!, Sato/Asakawa, PG.
In which Tachiki isn't a nice boy, Sato isn't a smart boy, and Asakawa isn't a natural blond.
Made-up fandom, true. But I love this story so much.

Wow, ten years is a long time. And so many fandoms I couldn't fit into that list. It's been so much fun and most of that is down to you, for reading. It's what makes it all worthwhile. ♥

So, uh, yay me. :) And if you have any questions you want to ask about my writing and such, go ahead.
