    ...when you're left wondering "why does my fic want to go to such-and-so?" (I guess I shall find out...)

    ...you're discovering the joy of your brain working properly again after months and you can immerse yourself in other people's stories, like you used to! [face_love]

    ...when you write profic just so you can maybe get published, maybe get your work optioned for a screenplay, and maybe get one of the actors from a Star Wars property to play one of your characters on screen (for me, any of the actors from The Clone Wars TV series...or from Rebels).

    ...when you start reading up on the legal system in place for what happens if a District Attorney who put a lot of actual criminals away turns out to also be a criminal. (So those judgments really could be overturned. Huh...)

    ... when you post a fic and people accept a detail in it into their personal headcanon.

    ...when you find yourself reading the Wikipedia entry on the International Criminal Court for the third time and also weather or not there are still transatlantic cruises. (There are. Yay!)

    ...when you read @DaenaBenjen42 's entry above, and have a small moment of pleasure at her mention of 'transatlantic cruises'; all because you are writing about an ocean cruise yourself, and it isn't even the same ocean!

    ...when you have two fics that you have posted the first chapter of and should be working on but instead you are working on your other, not-jet posted fics

    ...you see a headline saying that 'shippers' oppose lowering the Jones Act and you wonder why any any fan-fiction writer would oppose blocking aid to Puerto Rico. Then you realize they're talking about shipping companies.

    ...when it takes four rounds of outtakes for the point of a silly thing to become apparent. (As it turns out... NOT that silly.)

    ......when you start wondering...what if everyone in SW had a cat? and are cats related to loth-cats and tookas or are some kind of lost descendants or subspecies? Is there like, a planet with only cats on it? Only fanfic can answer these crucial questions....

    I always like to put cats in fanfic stories! I'm sure they're Force sensitive.
