No matter how often you share this story, it's still an awesome way to meet a future good friend, let alone a future spouse.What I produced wasn't, in retrospect, very good. But after a few chapters, a fellow fan and aspiring writer contacted me out of nowhere and offered to beta read my stories. Eleven years later, that woman is now my wife.
And so, you writing a story that I disliked ultimately led to my marriage. I am really grateful you wrote that story.
