I actually discovered LNH through running across the web
site somehow, probably during about 2000.  I think it was when the
Saviors of the Net crossover was winding down.  I was primarily a
fanfic writer at that point, so it could have had something to do with
the rec.arts.anime.creative archive which is also hosted on
 However, I didn't start reading and writing for RACC intensely until
about 2002.  At the time, I was deliberately trying to branch out as a
writer.  I always liked superhero stories a lot, although I had
stopped reading any comics with the exception of the J. Michael
Straczynski-written issues of Amazing Spider-Man.  So I decided to
give writing for RACC a try.  Since then, I've written a pathetic
total of five issues, six if you count a lame cascade add-on atempt,
which nobody does.

Hmmm...  The first story I read in the archive was probably the Cosmic
Plot Device Caper, in the incomplete version that existed at the time.
 The first story I read on RACC was probably one of Martin's
approximately five million issues.
