Family dinners have usually been eaten while we watch TV together. I remember Star Trek TOS being a part of that when I was very little. My mom saved me the newspaper announcing Star Trek TNG, leaving it out for me to find when I came home from school knowing I’d be excited.
The movies were always something the whole family enjoyed and we geeked together over them. When Star Trek XI came out, we all got excited and all of us really liked it.
I find it odd that it has taken me until July 2010 to read fanfic for Star Trek of any sort and it’s all Keira’s fault that I read it in the first place.
I have been devouring her SGA fics for quite awhile and especially liked The Ties That Bind. Keira’s inspiration was Xanthe’s General & Dr. Sheppard ‘Verse. I have been a huge fan of Xanthe for years.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed reading Tangled Destinies, even more than Keira’s writing could account for and so I started to search LJ for more.
I am just starting to explore this fandom, but I’m already enjoying it a lot. I get a kick out of telepathy fics and always loved the claiming aspect of AtS/BtVS fics, so I really should have checked out Star Trek fic a long time ago, especially considering the size of this fandom, but I’m excited to dive into it all.
