But - to return to my question - there are obviously other things that goose other people's immaginations, and I'm wondering about what draws you (the big general you) to read and write fanfic?

For me it's the characters. It's always the characters, and the way they interact. I started reading Potterfic (ah, those were the days! *g*) because I wanted to read more about Harry, Ron, Hermione and all the other interesting people that surround them. I started reading slash because it opened new dimensions to the characters and the way they interact. Same for all the subtext-y/non-canon pairings I devour. I love AUs (though not necessarily alternate reality fics) because of the interesting things they do to our characters. Two characters who've never met in canon? Sure. I'd like to know how they react when they meet each other. (on a side note: this is, I think, the reason why my reaction is a big "Hunh?" when someone says a pairing can never work. I mean, not work for you - sure, but not work in a story? why the hell not?)

And ultimately, I write because I want to tell stories about the characters I love so.
