Fan fiction?  
In the last week, I have become OBSESSED with Moonlight. After last week's episode "Arrested Development," full on obsession has hit. Mick's smile at the end of the episode did me in! Holy crap! I have all the episodes either downloaded (legally, of course) or recorded. I've watched the first 5 about 5 times a piece. I'm planning on watching last night's at least that many times between now and next Friday. I've been scouring the internet for photos, forums, and fan fiction. I've had luck with the first two as evidenced by my spiffy new avatar (thanks, lupinskitty!). But I haven't had as much luck with the last one. Now I realize that it's still early, but I think I've read nearly every  Moonlight fic on LiveJournal. Long story short, I have a few plot bunnies running around in my head. I'm contemplating writing a fan fic myself. I'm not sure I have the guts to do it though. I've never written fiction in my life. And I have criticism issues. I don't have a problem reading my own stuff, but I'm not comfortable having other people read it. Fear of rejection, I guess.

So what should I do? Put myself out there in this awesome fandom? Hide and wait for Mick to rescue me? Thoughts?

BTW, last night's episode rocked! It had everything. Mick's making a run at the number one vampire spot. Spike has held that crown for soooo long! Why is Alex so freaking hot?!

Bite the bullet and put yourself out there. I had the exact same experience a few years ago with Veronica Mars. I was absolutely terrified to not only *write* something, but then post it. Hel-freakin'-LO! But everyone was VERY supportive. Also, Moonlight is so new and such a fresh fandom, it's a great fandom to use as your toe in the water/introduction to fic-writing. Go for it and good luck!!

That's pretty much what I was thinking too. Thanks for the encouragement! :)

OMG, do you realise how much you rock? Oh, hello, I'm sorry. I'm a LJ rp'er who recently became obsessed by Moonlight (and picked up Mr. St. James). I ran into your journal while browsing some fan sites and holy hell, you do damn good job. I'm only through some of the fiction honestly but already am amazed at how quickly you found their voices. Awesome job. Can't wait to read it all. Hope to get the voice down eventually as good as you did.

Umm, yeah, that was St. John. Ahem. Neither of us shall speak of this incident ever again. Ever. ;)
