I’ve been going to fanfiction.net ever since the internet was invented. At least it feels that way. I’ve made a handful of contributions. They’re mostly horrible. Some are REALLY horrible and I’d remove them except the historian in me won’t let me. So instead I take solace in the fact no one else is reading them since they’re buried beneath years of new submissions.
I have a ridiculous obsessive personality so when I’m in to something I’m all in. I’m immersed and sometimes it leads to a decent story that I think legitimately reflects the original content.* That’s the thing about FF, sometimes you can buy it and it’s amazing and fun. Other times you’re like what was this person thinking?
Since I’m in BSG mode I keep tabs on the site. I check it now and then. With my new phone I browse the internet in bed for a few minutes to wake up. This morning I found what is probably the best fan fiction I’ve ever read. I’m so impressed that I’m going to share it and risk people finding my own stuff.**
The author has writing talent that is beyond what I would even hope to have for myself. It’s beautiful and heartfelt. It’s powerful to any Roslin/Adama lover but so well written that I think anyone can appreciate it. It’s short but sweet and for that reason I’d recommend strolling over to FF.net and checking it out.
*Sometimes it’s totally made up BS. Again, my early work is really bad.
**Please don’t waste your time. I am given to exaggerations but this truly isn’t one of those times. If I thought I wrote something worthwhile I’d share it.
