luxken27: (meta - fanfic is most difficult)
Well, today marks my fandom anniversary, as close as I can tell. I’m not exactly sure when I first dipped my toes into the fanfic/fanart world; I watched the Inuyasha anime and read the manga up-to-date sometime during the summer of 2007, and then started looking for fanart, which lead to fanfic, which lead to Christmas ’07 as a Tales from the House of the Moon timesink, which lead to even more reading of ‘major fandom works.’ But I *do* know that on March 11, 2008 I signed up for an account at Media Miner and posted the first three chapters of Every Heart, with no small amount of trepidation.

The rest, as they say, is history…

But what are your thoughts on yaoi?
This last year epitomized "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."

A look back: 2013 in review )

Even though I was largely absent from fandom this year, I wasn't - it was never far from my mind =) Whether it be doing the Best of the Golden Era polls for [community profile] kidsincdaily, lurking around Tumblr, or obsessively rewatching my "comfort food" shows (Golden Girls, Murder She Wrote, Daria), I was on the periphery, and sometimes elbow deep in research for ideas that have yet to come to fruition :P I don't know how much I was missed (if at all), but believe me - I definitely missed you guys.

(In mind-blowing news, I was tickled pink to see that Fleeting has over 100K views on FF.net. I can't quite believe it. Not even in five years did I expect to have that many hits on a story. That far surpasses any of my other work ever, on *any* archive - yet another reason why I call it my fandom opus ♥ )
