You know what I think is fascinating? About a month ago I was introduced to someone at an event through a mutual friend. She and I discussed books, television shows, and obviously Sherlock came up.
“I have to know… do you ship Johnlock?” she asked me, cautiously.
“OH yeah. Very much so.”
“Have you read ‘Performance in a Leading Role’?”
“Isn’t that fanfic great??”
This went on longer than I ever would have guessed. But how amazing is it that two people who don’t know each other have already read the same novel (yes, it’s a novel) that was written for free by a stranger online and advertised by word of mouth only?
Think of all the people you walk past in the city, sit next to you on the bus, or go to your school that could have read the same stories you love.
So if you have a story to tell, share it. You never know who could be reading.
