Fandom, you may be wondering why it looks like I've abandoned writing for you. Well. It's time I told you. You're going to find out anyway. I might as well admit it. I'm cheating on you with Original Fiction. I'm terrible. I've started so many Original Fiction stories behind your back, Fandom, I'm so sorry.
These stories are taking me away from you. The gap between you and I, it's growing everyday.
Oh God. I know. Stop looking at me like that! I can't help it. The shame. But I can't help it. There are cravings that only Original Fiction can sate. I've written roughly 25,000 words collectively and I can't stop. It's like a drug.
If it makes you feel better, it doesn't feel as good as fanfiction. I mean, there are things, Fandom, things that we can do that I nearly take for granted. Weird kinks and stories that are pure crack. Crossovers. Character pieces that are short and insightful. None of this world building crap of Original Fiction.
Original Fiction is so clingy, like it depends on me. Gah! You know that pressure? Of course not! There are ton of people propping you up, so I can leave you alone and not feel like I'm completely abandoning you, but Original Fiction is always harping on about write this and write that. It wheedles its way into my mind and won't leave.
Look at me talk about the Other Muse in front of you! That's in poor taste. I'm so sorry Fandom, forgive me. I'll do anything to get back on your good side. I'll do some work at the Anon. Meme. You always like that, don't you? And maybe when I get some time, I'll sign up for another fest for something?
Oh come on. Stop sulking. I haven't left you! Original Fiction is a shallow fling. I'll always come back to you, Fandom. Always.
It's a wonder I haven't been locked up. I'm a wee bit crazy sometimes. ;)
