In your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. How did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity?
The short answer to why I came into fandom can be said in two words: Remus Lupin.
I was rather clueless about the whole world of fandom until I did some aimless searches about Remus. It took some rather, er, strange search results, but eventually I discovered the wonderful HP fandom on LJ in all its variety, full of characters and pairings that I already loved, and quite a few that I hadn't given much thought to until some fic/art or other had me going "...of course!" :)
I'm so glad to have found this fandom, there are so many wonderful people here, and although I'm not always as active as I'd like to be, this place means a lot to me ♥ I think that's a topic for a post of its own once the challenge is over :)
I'm afraid there isn't a very interesting story behind my username. It's the Norwegian word for "fairy girl". I do love fairy tales, but the name doesn't have any particular connection to myself beyond that.
I'm Huldrejenta also over on AO3 and Tumblr (though I don't use my Tumblr account much - I think that's a topic for a post of its own as well:))
