Snowflake Challenge: Day Five

Oh hey, I almost forgot about the Snowflake Challenge! Today is Day Five:

in your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. how did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity? leave a comment in this post saying you did it. include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

The answer is probably a bunch of things, but here's one: My first encounter with fandom in the usual sense was reading mega-tragical Phantom/Meg poetry on Prodigy BBs. I would have been twelve or thirteen, and just emerging from a years-long, rational-thought-inhibiting, lightning-in-my-brain obsession with all things Phantom of the Opera. This is a way I get from time to time, and I think Phantom was the first.

At the time, I didn't think much of fanworks and for a long time I made fun of them reflexively; I think I was partly embarrassed by seeing a secret part of myself outside myself. I didn't actually write fanfiction until a few years ago, though I occassionally had a lot of it in my head before then.

My name comes from a fanfic that I wrote a couple years ago; this journal is also a relic of that project.
