Fandom of one?
OaT threesome
shadowscast
Today, gloriously, I had much of an afternoon and evening free, and I decided to spend it writing fic.

I wrote 2700 words of a Once A Thief fic. (Mac/Vic/Li Ann threesome, if you're wondering. Shaping up to be long and plotty and angsty, in the way my fics tend to.)

It was very satisfying. Once A Thief was my first fandom, the one I imprinted on. (See this post for details.) As a fandom, though, it is utterly, totally dead. Rigor mortis set in many years ago. So, supposing I finish this fic, it's not entirely clear that anyone but me will want to read it.

The way I'm feeling now, though, is that I'll finish it anyway. (We'll see how it goes, as my time and energy wax and wane!)

Hm. I guess I'm just posting to say: I think I have now clearly established that I write for an audience of me. When there turn out to be other people who want to read my work too, that's a super extra ice cream bonus!

PS: If by some weird chance anybody sees this post who would be interested in the story, do let me know! It would be encouraging.

PPS: People following my story Gently Down the Stream, do not fear. The last chapters are complete, and will be posted on schedule next Friday.

Well. Is it done yet? :D

What's that other one you mentioned? :D

I got my strawberry/vanilla Hagen Daz waiting for this story :D....

Yay, you're still around too! Fandom of two, then. :-)

Actually, somebody commented on the Dreamwidth version of this post too, so we're up to three.

Mmm, Hagen Daz.

I think we all write to please ourselves. We write because we like the characters and want to give them adventures, or make things work out differently for them than their creator did.

If we were trying to please other people, we'd be getting paid for it. :)

LOL! Hopefully. :-)

Yes, very much so. That's the primal drive behind fanfic right there, I think.

Ha! I didn't think anyone remembered Once A Thief :) I would love to read it, hon!

Well, awesome! :-)

What's your userpic, btw? It has such a similar vibe to the Once A Thief threesome, while being three entirely different actors who I don't recognise!

*g* My userpic is from Highlander. It's Duncan, Methos and Amanda from the show :) Highlander was one of my very first fandoms online, and I'm still kind of in love with those characters.

Oh, hah! Highlander is one of those shows that's always been lurking somewhere in the background of my life, without my ever actually having seen an episode of it. (My RL last name is in fact MacLeod, so people have this tendency to make Highlander references around me a lot.)
