    Escape

    For me, Fanfiction was an escape. An escape from friends, from family, but especially from school. I had been having a lot of trouble keeping up with assignments, and was barely passing with a B in most classes. Though that sounds good for a lot of people, it wasn't for me, my...

    I've been reading fanfiction for 10 years now and now that I Ebook it's followed me every where. It's always been an escape for me, and is certainly an addiction, but one I would not give up for the world. I'm incredibly picky though, about the quality of the story and about the...

    Ugh, I almost can't even remember when it started. Wait, check that, I DO remember; I just don't want to. I was a 2nd year in college, when I was doing a search for who-knows-what and stumbled across a fanfiction story. It was either in Charmed or Harry Potter -- I can't even...

    I like to write non-romance fanfictions.

    For instance horror themed, or maybe real life themed (which can be boring). I like writing horror fanfics just because it is the easiest for me to write.
