I started writing fanfiction when I was a teenager, after reading a particularly fantastic epic Tekken fanfic called "Ashes of the Phoenix" by an online author named Victar. It was novel-length and in two books, and it had a huge impact on me. I was inspired to continue the story he had told with characters that I loved from games that I loved, and even today writing fanfiction is one of the ways that I express my creativity without any rules or expectations for myself.
It's purely for fun!
The main fanfiction I have written, based on Victar's "Ashes of the Phoenix" and the sequel "Phoenix Reborn", is an epic cross-fanfic involving characters from the video game series Tekken, Soul Calibur, and Mortal Kombat.
