I’ve fallen into fandom, and I can’t get up.
In between edits on the next episode of Femitokon, I’ve been writing fanfic again. I know, it’s hard to believe.
Golden Kamuy is a great series, and I adore that emotionally immature bear-cub, Tanigaki Genjirou. Naturally, I’ve paired him with the sociopath (fan favorite Hyakunosuke Ogata), and it’s going quite well.
Writing original short stories took my creative brain away from revisions on Femitokon. Losing my focus isn’t cool but new ideas spring up all the time and I’m a writer that has to act on them, or I go insane. Reading and writing fanfic lets me work through my original ideas in a way that doesn’t tax my creativity.
Some of you may scoff, but I started in fanfiction, and I’ll probably end there.
