Have You Ever? Fandom Edition
I saw this tag over on A Geek Girl's Guide by Michelle and I thought it'd be really fun to take part! Fandom is my life. I'm a complete and utter fangirl, I'm somebody who completely wears her heart - and her fandoms! - on her sleeve. Being involved in fandom has been such a world changer for me. Heck, I wouldn't be an artist if it wasn't for fandom, and I sure as heck wouldn't have the circle of friends I do now without it, either!
Have you ever made fan art?
Um... yeah. It's kind of my job, haha.
Have you ever written fan fiction?
I have! I've written fanfic my whole life. When I was a kid I used to use Dad's old Amstrad to write Sonic the Hedgehog stories! I mainly write 'drabbles' - stories limited to just 100 words - due to my very short attention span. You can find some of my fanfic over on my A03 page - it's mostly Doctor Who and Yuri on Ice! (and I'll warn you, though none of my fic is adult, I am a bit of a slasher... ahem!)
Have your ever gone to a special event for a fandom? (midnight releases, etc.)
Assuming we don't mean conventions, because boy, I've been to a lot of those, I've attended quite a few fandom events as well! I am fortunate enough to live right next to Wincanton, a small town that regularly hosts Discworld events such as Hogswatch, and I went to the midnight release of Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows, too (and I won cinema tickets for best fancy dress!)
Have you ever been active in a fandom community online?
Very much! I used to roleplay in the old days, and as a dedicated fanartist, I'm always sharing my creations with the world. I'm really active on Twitter, in Discord communities, and on forums (yes, some still exist!)
Have you ever made friends because of mutual fandoms?
Heck, most of my friends these days are through fandom in one way or another, either because I met them at cons, or through my art, or in an online video game. I'm a lifer, man.

YAY for fanart and fanfics! I love how the communities of fandoms really bring everyone together in a way that's even far beyond the series' themselves. I know for my main fandom, Death Note, there're so many good creators out there and they inspire me so much. ^_^
