2. First ever fandom/fic/pairing?
Years ago I was curious about the world of Stargate, so I went online to see if there were others who liked it and stumbled upon fanfiction at an SG1 forum. There was this guy who wrote amazing SG1 fanfic (I can't remember his name and he wrote long, plotty, gen fics), but because of a thread there where people were bashing slash fic (which this guy didn't write, but didn't bash and ended up defending), I became curious about what slash fic was. I hadn't read a ton of gen fic yet, but enough to realize I loved fanfic.
Anyway, searching for slash fic opened up a whole world to me because what I'd been doing with characters in my head for years, other people were doing the same and posting it! I read A LOT of SG1 slash fic and as much femmeslash as I could get my hands on. My favorite pairing was Jack/Daniel, but I really liked Janet paired with OFCs or Sam. I'm not a huge Sam fan, but it was worth it when she was paired with Janet. There were a few Daniel/Janet fics I really liked too.
From there I started branching out to see if other shows were involved in this wonderful world of fanfic. I believe my next fandom was either X-Files or Star Trek, but I focused a little more on X-Files, both of which I still read.
