"Fan art is also another part of fandom culture that inspires me and takes characters where I’d wish they could go but sadly did not in their original form. Fandom artists are unbelievably talented in their own way and artistic lane…whether it be canon, fantasy, AU or OTP. It’s just another way to be fulfilled by existing characters that touched us and now are being taken to another plane."
