Saw this and wanted to share my story about how this is untrue.
I was writing fanfiction in notebooks in high school, and me and my friends would pass it back and forth because they wanted to read all the smutty goodness. If anyone has read some of my fanfics for supernatural or otherwise you’ll know what I’m talking about.
One day I was writing a particularly x rated scene in science. My friend was really excited about it and was bugging me to write faster and pass it to her to read. So I did and at one point the old fat teacher (a guy no less) goes, what are you writing that’s so wonderful? It can’t be notes, let me read it to the class.
My friend literally gasped and I started shaking my head, ‘no you really don’t want to read this.’ I told him and he gave me a look so I brought it up to him and had to stand there as he read the most graphic man on man sex scene I’d probably ever written to date. I saw his eyes scan over the paper, and slowly get bigger and he glanced up at me and all I could do was shrug. ‘told you so’ I thought.
He turned out to be a cool teacher and made up some gross sounding love confession about some guy I was crushing on, and then said don’t write anymore notes in his class. I sat down and I swear for the rest of that year he never called on me or looked at me for more than 2 seconds the rest of the semester.
fanfiction could have ended my life that day.
