So there were quite a few things that really influenced me, but I'll pare it down to the top 3:
- Harry Potter (specifically, if I'm going to be honest, Lightning on the Wave's retelling of the books)
- Anne Bishop's Black Jewels series (because, if I'm honest, all my A/B/O ideas originate from here)
- LeDiableBlanc.com (because this was what really started me reading fanfic and specifically slash fanfic)
There's a lot of other things - movies and universes that I love reading, that influenced my ideas or my plots or honestly a bunch of different things regarding my life.
Though I will give a special mention to Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (the movie). It gave me chills and literally the entire afternoon after I watched it I was sure all the clouds looked like dragons and I was floating around silent and just... stunned, I guess.
