But otherwise, I'm fairly happy with the return to the hobby of my pre-online fandom years. It feels more productive and somehow more sane (again no offense intended) than to write about the love-lives of other people's fictional characters. But I'll write another fic sooner or later :) Escapism is always a motive if I'm involved. An aquaintance who is brilliant, but very weird explained it like this: Languages are a great way to keep the mind busy. I took her advice.
But I can have a hobby without second thoughts. Sports, I like doing them, as long as there are no flying objects.
