If you were able to peek into my early fandom times, you'd see I wasn't one for writing fanfics. The closest I got was writing a story for my English class that had pretty obvious references to Ouran High School Host Club. (Pretty sure it was a story about a haunted house... /inward groaning/)
Of course, certain fandoms moved me differently. The Mermaid Melody fandom moved me towards cosplay. The Ace Attorney fandom moved me towards role-playing. (I like to think I did pretty good RP-ing as Ron Delite, but not everyone thinks that.) The Mega Man fandom drew me towards community interactions. It wasn't until getting into the Starlight Express fandom that I was pushed far enough to actually write my first fanfic. (Chain of command goes: cosplay > RP > community interactions > fanfics. If I get to fanfic, I'm apparently too far into the rabbit hole to get out.) It started simple enough; me and a fellow RP-er were talking in PMs about different headcanons, which ended up in hearing something that would've sounded interesting in a story setting, and then the rest is history. I'm now two fics into this shit, and currently working on two more. And I'm sure there's more on the way...
... Except now I kinda have an idea for a non-fanfic story. I ended up reading about the old Choose Your Own Adventures books (and about two Choose Your Own Nightmare books as well, because those existed and I still want to read them like I still want to read Goosebumps books), and I had a dream involving a boy with a penpal who gets in trouble with someone and is sent to a boarding school where things go right ahead and take a turn for the worse, while his penpal tries to find him. (It's also one of those dreams where if you've been thinking about someone *a lot*, they appear *in that dream*. /cringes/) Because of all that, I want to write it into a story, but I'm not entirely sure I have that much desire to write what would eventually become a long-ass storyline. (I can fanfic just fine, but occasionally my stupidity shows in horrible ways.) I still have those other two fics to work on, but it's just a feeling that I really, really WANT to do the thing, but I don't know if I SHOULD...
Also, thinking about serious things to do in fanfics is hard if you keep imagining everything happening to/with certain people, and you either start laughing too hard or you get way too embarrassed..
