That "What Kind Of Fanfic Writer Are You?" Meme  
My results below. Looking at the questions, sometimes more than one of the answers applied, because I've written for more than one fandom. Prison Break is all cops/crime and also pretty much a "dead" fandom, and Supernatural is *koff* magic/fantasy and still very lively. Whatever category I picked for SPN gave off "Sparkly Vampires And Sorting Hats!" vibes, though, I've got to say.

And really, lumping Slash in with Mpreg and Shonen-ai and whatever that other one was? Two of them I don't even know the meaning of, and the other is a whole different beast from Slash. Get with the Millenium, already!

All right, here goes:

Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

Everything is possible, nothing is ever really over.

Fanfiction is a creative outlet for you. You don't intentionally write it, it just happens. You find inspiration in several fandoms, but are not obsessed with only one.

You like to explore "what if" situations. What if this character had never made this very choice? What if this event had taken place sooner, never, elsewhere? What if these people had never met?

You are likely to write Alternative Universes, fan seasons or sequels and just follow your (sometimes pretty strange) plot bunnies.

You know, I think I'm actually more of a canonist than a "what if" person. I do more character studies and more canon parallel/sideview than anything, except for the parts that become slashy. I'll write the "what if" once in awhile, but not that often.

IOW, I think that test could have been better. ;)

SHonen-ai means "boys love", but not in a NAMBLA sense. It means young men falling in love and is aimed at teen girls. Training heels yaoi (japanese slash) if you will.

Ah! That totally appealed to me when I was a teen girl, but now that I'm over 40 and a parent myself, it's kind of scary.

I still don't think any of those fit in with Mpreg. Tentacle-fic, or main-character-becomes-a-car stories, sure. But slash is deliciously common now. ;)
