Wow, so many years of my life devoted to this wonderful show! I started writing fan-fic back in 1997 (because that was when episodes began to air in Australia) and haven't stopped ever since, even if now my writing is in other fandoms. Thanks to this show, I was part of the Pretender Virtual Series for four years before moving on to write other things. My first book was published in 2005, my second in 2012 and my third in 2016. I have also completed my PhD in creative writing. And all of that stems, in a wide variety of ways, from The Pretender.
So clearly it's all Steve and Craig's fault...
