10:31 am - I take the fanfic survey!
For anyone who has wondered about my fanficcish leanings, wonder no more. All is revealed behind the cut.

Do you read or write fanfiction?Both!
When did you first start reading/writing fanfiction?Wrote my first when I was 14; didn't start reading till 17.
What was your first fandom?Star Trek: The Next Generation
First ship?Picard/Beverly Crusher
What website do you use most??
What do you think of Fanfiction.net?It's a good place to archive all one's fics, but that means most of the stuff there is crap.
What fandoms have you written in?Star Trek: TNG, ReBoot, I-Man, X-Files, SG-1, The Sentinel, CSI, Buffy, X-Men, Firefly, Harry Potter, Numb3rs
Pairings?I don't tend to ship, but Grissom/Sara, Mulder/Scully, Daniel/Sha're
Any fandoms you would like to write in?Barrayar.
Do reviews affect how you write in any way?I accept constructive criticism; and it's a great encouragement.
Do you use a beta?Yep. I have several, for my various fandoms.
What ratings do you read/write?I'll read through R (violence, language), and will also write that far. No explicit sex--or I skip those scenes.
What warnings have you used on your fiction/read?Graphic violence, torture, character death, angst, spiritual themes
Do you have any squicks?Slash, incest, non-con or sexual abuse
Do you Role-play online? If so, what?No. In person is much more fun.
Have you ever stolen something from another person's work?Not to my knowledge, though I have been inspired by others.
Favorite fandom to write/read?Currently? The Sentinel or SG-1.
Favorite pairing?Currently? Grissom/Sara.
Favorite writer/writers?Currently? sammac, who is writing some great Numb3rs fic
How long should a chapter be?Who knows?
Do you write/read drabbles?I have a hard time being that short.
Any fandoms you avoid?Erm. Sure. Anime/manga, anything heavily into vampires/horror...
Pairings you avoid?Slash pairings, incest, anyone-but-Ron/Hermione
Warnings you avoid?Rape, non-con, pre-slash, slash, incest, pwp
Do the number of reviews tell how good a story is?No! Lots of people like/review garbage. :-P
What do you think of Mary Sues?Everyone has to write at least one. Smart writers keep those stories hidden away.
Have you ever flamed someone?Nope.
Have you ever been flamed?Not seriously.
That's it, aren't you glad?Yep. ;-)

"In person?" You've played board RPGs or do you mean something else?

Well, we didn't have a board (most of the time), but me, my 2 eldest brothers, and my sister-in-law used to play Star Wars RPG. My bro is the coolest GM ever. :-) And I was the only non-Jedi.

Don't a lot of people write fic before they read it? Or was that just us non-Internet kids? :-) I had read tie-in novels (Trek), but figured they were just like more episodes....

I wrote X-Men fanfic long before I ever heard of fanfiction. I imagine for kids today, starting on the Net very young, it'd be a different story.

You should see my TNG and TOS novel collection. Staggering. ;-D

Well, to be fair, maybe I SHOULD cont the spec scripts I wrote, but I didn't start them untill AFTER I had submission guidelines from paramount.
And I'd had tons of ideas for AGES but I never wrote any of them down...
