When I was younger, much younger, I used to come up with stories for TV shows. A few times I would even write them down. I'd use the characters from the show and create my own episode.
Little did I know that I was not crazy for doing this. That there are many other people in the world that do the same thing. It's called Fan Fiction - aka - FanFic.
As I became an adult I slowly walked away from this part of my life. I used to follow actors and shows. It was a great escape from all that went on in my life. No, my life wasn't horrible, as a teenager, it was pretty normal. I really enjoyed being a fangirl, though. As I said, I walked away from this. I had to grow up at one point.
This all changed in 2008. A new show came out that I got completely enthralled with it. It's called Sanctuary. This show began as a webseries, airing their 12-15 min segments online. After several episodes/segments aired SyFy picked it up. It was wonderful. It was a whole new world for me to explore.
The difference with this show, the cast and crew. Amanda Tapping played the main character Dr. Helen Magnus, (she's from Stargate SG-1.) Well, her, Martin Wood and Damian Kindler put the show together and got feedback from their fans. This alone was different. They took a different path with this show. I don't remember when I really started watching Sanctuary, but I have seen every episode that I can tell you almost every line and miscellaneous information regarding the episodes.
Sanctuary brought me back into the world of fandom. The fun thing was that this time I have the internet at my fingertips! Social media is a great tool for us fans and the actors that use it. Sanctuary had their own website: www.sanctuaryforall.com, they were very interactive with their fans, which has created a great group of people who had a link - Sanctuary.
Anyway, after chatting with other fans I learned about fanfic. There were others who wrote stories for their favorite shows, and as I learned, for comics, movies, and books as well. So, I started writing once again. I pulled out those stories from my head and put them in the computer. Then I put them on the website to get feed back.
This is where you can find my writings if you are interested. I do have a favorite story that I've written. When I read it myself I am still amazed that I wrote it. It's titled Secluded for Sanctuary. I have several other stories that I've not posted there that are running through my head. They will eventually get out of my head and written. I've had a bought of writer's block for a while now and am just trying to get past that to finish the story I'm on. I know where I want to go but just can't get past one point.
So, this is just a taste of what goes on in my head.
More to come about being a fangirl!
