I've been a fan of Casualty (on and off) since I was about ten. I can remember sitting on my living room floor covering my eyes to avoid the gory bits when I was about six or so, didn't take me long to get over that one.
My favourite series are probably from about series 11 to 15. That was when I was really into it. We HAD to watch Casualty on a Saturday and if we missed it there was hell to pay. After that other things got in the way and I didn't watch it as often, wasn't so interested in the characters and watnot. By that time I'd also moved away from the area where I used to live. I grew up in Bristol and so had plenty of exposure to the show; they used to film at least one car crash a series down the road from my house and I can remember sitting on the fence there one day watching Josh and Penny working on a patient, heh.
I'd also met several of the cast members from those series' so as they left I guess there wasn't the same connection there. Anyway, my Nan still loves the show. She and my Dad watch it, pointing out all the streets and places we used to visit. In fact, in the episode where Toby was running across Holby to get to work my Dad and I were cracking up, he got from one side of Bristol to the other in a matter of seconds. :D
My fiance also loves the show. He never really watched it before he met me and now I think he's more hooked than I am!
And that got me looking for fanfic the other day.
My favourite pairing, when I was younger, was Tina and Max. I know, throw rotten tomatoes at me, but I really did not like Sean. I guess I've always had a thing for older guys I guess... still do :D
Moving on, I've started posting a fic on FF.net. It's not my first, though it is the first I've ever made public :D There's an element of challenge there to see if you can figure out who the person is because I don't think it's actually mentioned who it is in the first two chapters. Virtual cookie to anyone who guesses :D
Anyway, go ahead and read My Story
, aptly named 'My Story' for want of a better title.
And hello to everyone else here.
