WEEELLLLL. its a long story. well. not really. sorta?
I used to watch the show when I came home in middle school. Once I did an internet search for the show, and this fic was the first result.
I read a bit, and 12 year old Jess thought it was the WORST thing ever. Didn’t even survive the first chapter.
YEARS LATER I was looking for ‘an extremely goofy’ videos. I found this one. And then I was like WHOA WHOA. WHY DOES THIS SHOW SOUNDS SO FAMILIAR.
One google search later, I found that old fan fic, reread it, and became obsessed.
Right now, me and my best friend are in the process of rewatching all the old episodes of Static Shock to find all the VR moments in the entire series. And shes trying to get me to read all the SS fics in the registry.
BUT YEAH. THATS THE STORY. :D
