clark/ollie fanfic

30 Day Fanfic Meme

It's been a while since I've done one of these. Let's hope I actually finish this one. I snagged it from scrollgirl.

1) How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

I started writing fanfic because of the two guys in my current icon. I'd been reading fanfic for years but it was Smallville, more specially Clark/Oliver that prompted me to write my first fic. It was mostly because of the lack of fic for this pairing that prompted me to write my own. I seriously fell in love with Clark/Oliver in the very beginning ... by the end of 6.04 'Arrow', I was sold. But after every episode, when I googled for fics, I couldn't find much. In fact, I found LJ through a google search ... ollieville to be specific. I created an account so I could join and days later, I was writing fic.

I had read slash but I had to overcome a serious mental block to not only write fic, but to write Clark/Oliver. I love to write and come up with a lot of ideas but I'm a lazy person. If there is a lot of fic for a certain pair, I won't write it unless I'm really inspired. I'd rather read fic. When it came to Clark/Ollie, I knew that if there was to be more fic, I'd have to write it myself. So I did. And I haven't looked back.
