How’d we meet? Why did we form this site?
Once upon a time, there was a website called BetterInTexasFiction.ning.com. There, a man known by many names, BetterInTexas, Jason, BossMan, created a place where not only did he post his own works of fanfic and original works of fiction, but he also created an environment for others to do so as well. It was there that MrsAlderaan and EllieFayeT first ‘met’.
Over time, a word-nerd friendship was formed. After a fashion, the friendship moved away from just the chats they had on various writing sites to their own personal emails and soon, cell phones. Soon, not only was writing a topic of conversation, but all aspects of the actual personal lives of both. Then… a real friendship was formed. Often, during video chats, MrAlderaan (a.k.a. AlderaanGaming) would often joke about the two being ‘friendly internet strangers’ or ‘wordy potential axe murderers’. Finally, thanks to PAX West 2017, Mrs&MrAlderaan traveled to the Seattle area to attend and they stayed with the T-family and their matriarch, EllieFaye.
The two were no longer just strange internet friends, but could claim real life pal-dom. Especially after hugs were exchanged… and no murders occured.
When the ladies found out that the site that they first met on and kindled their friendship was going to close down, they decided to create their own site. After forming some overly-ambitious ideas and then doing damn near nothing with it for over a year, they revamped their original website idea and reworked it into something more doable considering the website skillsets the two possessed.
