I figured it was about time that we have a place for those of us who have been here "forever" to sit down and chat about fan fiction. Those of us who remember Snowboards and the glory of UBB, the days when there was only a handful of writers in Fan Fiction, and the glorious days of endless Obi-torture fics. Note: As much as we love everyone on the board, this is a discussion for writers who were here in 2001 or before. Sorry, guys, but you aren't "oldbies" yet! So, let's begin, shall we? Name: When did you join Fan Fiction and why?: Favorite characters to write: Favorite classic JC story: Favorite old writer (as in no longer active on the boards): First story, post date, and your thoughts on it now: Reason for sticking around?: I guess I get to start... Name: Rachel (I've grown accustomed to Mi) When did you join Fan Fiction and why?: November... 21? 1999. A friend got me hooked on a story here ("My Dear Padme"), and I came here to read it. And, well, here I am. Favorite charactres to write: Obi-Wan definitely. He's the most interesting person in the GFFA, in my opinion. Other than him, I love writing Han and Leia. Favorite classic JC story: "Obi-Wan's Shotgun Wedding." I read that story so many times when I needed a laugh. Favorite old writer (as in no longer active on the boards): Amidolee! I remember her SabÃ© stories way back when! First story, post date, and your thoughts on it now: "A Jedi Christmas Carol," it's now deleted (thank god), but I think it was late Nov/early Dec, 1999. My thoughts on it now: "Why oh why did I repost it in 2000?" Reason for sticking around?: I love it here and I love to write.
