How did you discover Fanfiction? (100)

1 Name: NewMagicWeaver : 2009-12-10 12:17 ID:ykRfYOGC

I'm just curious about how people discovered fanfiction.
I went to this random Vampire Writing Club in Durham (North-East of England incase anyone doesn't know)
Someone wrote loads of fanfiction and gave everyone the website. It was cool. I wasn't interested in writing anything for it, but when my new friend asked me to read her story, I visited Fanfic for the frst time. I read her story and looked at the other stories besed on my favourite books (Night World by L.J.Smith) and Charmed stories. It was fab! I signed up the next day, I think, and I started writing things for fanfic.
This was only about a month ago, lol.
Also, one of my friends wrote fanfiction, so I kinda knew what it was before the Vampire Writing Club, I just didn't know about the website.

So how did everyone else discover fanficion?

My cousin was into reading Dragonball Z and Angel fics back in seventh grade and introduced me to ff.net...and thus an obession was born.

52 Name: DancexInxThexDark : 2010-01-16 06:40 ID:b8Mt8xgq

Well, i got into anime when i was in primary school, about year 5 time, but back then, writing didn't mean much to me.
But as i matured, i found myself writing ideas down on stories i would love to write about. That was when it hit me 'i wonder if there's a website where people can post stories online?'
and as if by magic along came fanfiction.net
I got writing straight away after that :)

53 Name: Librastar : 2010-01-16 11:55 ID:ZOjkdl0N

I was a huge lover of Seto Kaiba, and then found people who loved him as much as me and le gasp wrote stories about him! =D

ergo, i eventually discovered that holy haven of fanfiction.net

54 Name: Ran Fan : 2010-01-18 04:02 ID:7lb0G2Bh

Ah, I remember it well. I was browsing a Rasmus forum in late 2004 and came across a fanfiction segment. Curious, I took a peek, and then moved onto greener pastures.

55 Name: Celia36 : 2010-01-18 14:03 ID:ShIyZjSl

completely by accident, I had never even heard of fanfiction. I was just searching for some stuff on old tv shows I used to enjoy one day and found a link for fanfiction.net and have never looked back, that was four years ago!!

56 Name: SleepDeprived : 2010-01-20 15:33 ID:rolJ3/+f

I had finished reading The Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan and I wanted to read more, as per usual after reading a set of books, so I looked on google and came across a fan-fiction story on ff.net and after that I was hooked. I go on there all the time looking for stories and there are some brilliant writers. Now I don't know what I'd do without it.

57 Name: KK33 : 2010-01-21 03:27 ID:nJ7e9odh

Honestly? I really can't remember. I think I found the website two-three years ago...I think.

58 Name: Iaculus : 2010-01-21 03:52 ID:xxBLZ7f0

Used to be a regular on the Black Library forums before they got eaten, and decided to take a look at the past award-winners on the fanfiction section one day. Needless to say, I was promptly sold like a mail-order bride on a discount. Ye gods, they had some astonishingly good stuff on there.

61 Name: Master1795 : 2010-01-21 14:10 ID:oblwRwTK

Well I was introduced to it by my sister and have known and used it for about 4-5 years now. I have read many stories in that time, Star Wars, Firefly/Doctor Who, Harry potter are probs my fave.

62 Name: TheMystery : 2010-01-23 06:49 ID:KNGzECzT

I remember writing little stories when I was ten for cartoons :D But when I really got into bigger fiction two years later, I ended up creating a totally awesome Mario story!

71 Name: Tristana : 2010-01-24 12:42 ID:mKbdLkZS

Before Order of the Phoenix came out, a friend made me read my first fanfic and ever since, I started reading more and more, until I started to write something like 4 years ago. And since then, I can't help but getting ideas when watching/reading new stuff. An obsession of sort.

72 Name: WhiteAtropos : 2010-01-24 15:40 ID:ZdztJMrF

Mine was when I was thirteen. I was a cool kid and really really wanted a Digimon. So my first piece of fanfic was a self-insert of very poor quality. Bad times!

73 Name: Tristana : 2010-01-24 16:41 ID:Tn93W6US

@ WhiteAtropos: If I tell you that my very first fanfic was a poor excuse to get to snog Captain Jack Sparrow?^^ (Never let anyone read that and destroyed the file)

74 Name: WhiteAtropos : 2010-01-24 17:06 ID:ZdztJMrF

@ Tristana: Shameless self-indulgence is all good :P

75 Name: Felton0Fanatic : 2010-02-21 10:09 ID:hBkAi7wL

I discovered fanfic through my mum. When I said I was bored, she printed one off and sent me off to read it. It was a severitus, so I was immediatelly introduced to that, and then she gave me a teen drarry fic, so I was introduced to slash.

:) My mums cool.

76 Name: EsmeAmelia : 2010-07-02 09:56 ID:5VdFbEmq

I was around sixteen and I was completely obsessed with Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame. So I started searching the net for HoND websites, and I came across a site (now dead) called "The HoND Fan Fic Store." I had NO idea that people actually wrote down new adventures of their favorite characters.

77 Name: NaruLoverAI : 2010-07-02 15:59 ID:HavsgO/w

I discovered fanfiction through one of my best friends in the seventh grade. I have to say I've been hooked ever since. :)

78 Name: Kaimaler : 2010-07-03 07:44 ID:CQFIc9jx

I stumbled on it four years ago looking for some random fictions.
At first I didn't like it, at all. I was so used to the other sites that I didn't give it a chance. About a year later I just signed up.

Two days later I couldn't stop typing out stories and eventually I'm a semi-successful FF author and I love it.

Personal thanks to Quizilla in the early days! :)

79 Name: slashfilled-mind : 2010-07-06 11:57 ID:ocGUOrmq

80 Name: YohKo Bennington : 2010-07-06 15:11 ID:QKjlRR3b

Well I discovered fan fiction thanks to one of my best friends six years ago. We always liked to read a lot, and one day she showed me this page with fan fics of Card Captor Sakura, our favorite anime at the momment. I used to write little stories in my notebook for different animes bway before that, but I didn't now that was called "fan fiction" until she showed me that page.
After that, came Fanfiction.net
I started publishing fics later on. Now I keep publishing about CCS and Supernatural.

It post it twice XD. crazy internet.

83 Name: TV Geek : 2010-07-07 04:05 ID:aw42w916

Well, I was 14 at the time. It was just after Charmed's sixth season was aired in Britain, so around February/March 2004 and I was reeling after they killed off my favourite character (Chris).

I went online trying to find stuff about it and discovered a site, I think it was called strawtogold.net. From there I discovered what fanfic was, and a couple of weeks later I discovered fanfic.net.

I didn't create an account until 2006 though, and only now am I really serious about the one story I'm writing, which involves torturing my favourite character to a point worse than death, funny turnaround there.

84 Name: Yellow 14 : 2010-07-07 09:35 ID:TkN5Tch9

Having heard about HP fanfiction, I decided to see if there was fanfiction for other stuff. I decided to use Ace Combat and found JohnnyFrosts Tower of Black Ivory. From then on, I was hooked

85 Name: Eltigre221 : 2010-07-13 11:51 ID:J6HcJNDw

I think for me it was about two years ago, I was looking at art on Deviantart.com, and I found a link to a fanfiction from a pic that was based off of a chapter of the story.

I read that fanfiction and many more after it, and just fell in love with writing. I think it was that day or the one after it that I sighed up to the website and became hooked on writing fanfiction. :)

86 Name: YaoiFreak : 2010-07-13 11:58 ID:JgiuLYVB

Being a Yaoi Freak who knows about a lot of mangas and animes in a circle of obsessed friends, word got round about Fanfiction.net. Naturally curiosity hit me and I had to see. It was like heaven on earth. I was writing stories before this whole thing, but then I started writing my own fanfictions and got some hits. It was amazing so why let it go?

87 Name: Dreamcreator : 2010-07-13 15:01 ID:yWGhKXh8

Hi!

Well I discovered fanfiction when I was thirteen by one of my friends. Since then I have been hooked on it for five years. It wasnt till last year that I finally decided to post up my stories.

Long live Fanfiction!

88 Name: Yoruko Rhapsodos : 2010-07-21 16:15 ID:u2HZZ/+D

lol. I was 10 when I was searching for a Inuyasha website when i discovered a link to an author's page. after reading the story I checked out her favorites and the favorites of the authors I found through her favorites then I eventually figured out how the website works. I've been on fanfiction.net during most of my freetime since. I even got my mom into it. >:-)

89 Name: Bitch Goddess : 2010-07-28 09:45 ID:JPJCvjKf

I was about 13 or so and the first Harry Potter movie had just come out (so of course it had just got popular) and about the second or third book had come out. My friends and I had been reading the books since they came out and one of my friends discovered the oh so amazing Draco trilogy by Cassandra Claire which was posted on Snoogle. After reading that I went searching for more and found ff.net. And here I am 8 years later still reading and writing!

90 Name: Mistress Becca : 2010-07-28 12:25 ID:xwaPW39I

I learned of Fanfiction from a real-life friend of mine... she had been on the site for a while and wished for me to join it, I now love fanfiction and have wrote several... Thank you Cassidy!!!

91 Name: Untitled One : 2010-07-28 14:02 ID:8GzGlh7G

This is sad, but I really don't remember how I came of FF. I think I had been watching trailers for fanfics on Youtube. And then I clicked on the site and just loved it. I think it was two years later I got an account, because I realized I was serious about writing. Now I don't post anything though.

92 Name: Mikanchan94 : 2010-07-28 22:22 ID:YxhhB6R/

I was really into Inuyasha and I ended up searching some inukag stuff and viola I found fanfiction. However, I didn't find out about fanfiction.net until eighth grade when I heard some classmates talk about it. Love that site.

93 Name: KatonRyu : 2010-07-29 04:43 ID:BFjqtyt6

I was looking for Pokemon fics. At the time I was a Pokeshipper, and I was looking for fics of the pairing. Then I came across FF.net and pretty much immediately joined up.

94 Name: HaniTwili : 2010-08-08 14:40 ID:Y4tu9Y2z

Well, I started writing fics at a pretty young age, but I stumbled across others on Quizilla when I clicked on something thinking it was a quiz...I got into serious, non-Mary Sue fics when looking for Naruto het fics! :)

95 Name: XxObsessivexX : 2010-08-09 09:29 ID:sgxTtjhH

i remember that three or four years ago i was reading some writings on Daa! Daa! Daa! and Cardcaptor Sakura ( i can recall it was a Sakura K. & Syaoran L. fanfic and Syaoran cheats on her with Tomoyo. it actually made me hate Tomoya for a minute there). At that time, i didnt even know they were called fanfictions at that time, but i enjoyed them anyway.

Then, last year, i was IMing my friend and she told me about this fanfiction she read on a site called adultfanfiction.net. the story was called For the Love of His Son. I was completely in love with the fiction and i asked her for recommendations. SHe then gave me another fanfiction site ( fanficiton.net) and i just started off from there. Because of HER, i am now an addicted fanfic reader.

I first learnt about fan fiction when a friend of mine told me go on Twilighted (a Twilight-based fanfiction website)and read "Family Secrets" by sirenastarot.
Since then, I've been an avid FF-reader

I first discovered fanfiction when surfing the web for 'Pokemon' related things. I found and read some 'Pokemon' fics on independent hosting sites. For a time I enjoyed reading 'Pokemon' fanfics, but I eventually sorta just forgot about it. I didn't rediscover it until a while later, only this time it was 'Teen Titans' stories, and it was at this time that I discovered ff dot net. Again, for a while I enjoyed reading fics, and at one point I even tried to start an account, but I didn't understand how to get my e-mail account started up at the time, and once again real life drama intervened and prevented me from even so much accessing a computer for... shit, I don't even know exactly how long it was, but it sure felt like a long time... (And, no, I'd rather not detail what was going on -- family issues, and whatnot)

The third time I discovered fanfiction, it was in the Naruto fandom. After reading lurking for a while, I finally joined fanfiction dot net on June 11, 2006. Third time's the charm, I guess.
