I'm college student with not enough time on my hands. Regardless, I waste a good portion of that time on the internet. I enjoy writing and would like to go into either writing or editing as a career. This is a major part of why I write fanfiction: practice.
Regardless of what I would like, though, I'll probably do the practical thing and go into computer science. We'll see.
I also enjoy examining fandoms in detail. In fanfic, you often see multiple variations on the same story; looking at them, finding themes and differences, is really neat. So is watching the development of those themes and stories.
