First TV show I had self-intertion fantasies about:
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
First fandom in which I interacted (online and in person) with other fans:
The Sentinel (but the first show that ever got me to a fandom con was Quantum Leap)
Pairing in the first slash fanfiction I read:
Jim and Blair (TS)
First fanfiction I read that made me think, YES, this is exactly the kind of fanfiction I'd like to write:
I think it was Territorial Imperative by Bone & Astride, but there were others, like a Brak story I remember loving, and something that made no sense but was fun, called, Da Bunny and Da Wizard, by ninjababe. Back then, all sorts of comments were added to stories that actually tickled your funny bone and made you read even more than summaries! And there were several stories by M-n-M, written at the very beginning of the fandom but that I read in '98 - and yeah, they, along with Territorial Imperative pushed me over.
Pairing in the first fanfiction I wrote:
J/B (never wrote any gen - anywhere)
First fannish friend I met in person
There were several - here for the Pasadena Rally when the show was renewed. They arrived on my doorstep in Mission Viejo at the same time as they'd come down from the Bay area together. But I think the first one I *saw* was marmoset (Sue) but the first to speak was Jencat. You can read all about it because Marmoset wrote it up on senad as a fun exercise wherein our heroes, Jim and Blair, both fans of a show called The Watchman, end up attending a fandom gathering. She then put all posts together into a story called Love in Unexpected Places. *G*
First character I formally roleplayed:
Like Dolimir, I've never role-played in a fandom (but I used to play the Swamp Fox as a kid while scampering around an apartment building during the construction phase and I do believe I was also the Scarecrow, which had me and my buds from the neighborhood putting on our best British accents).
